Did you tested the optimized libraries? I did and it caused unable to install updates to second system. Only Miflash helped.

I don't own this device, but i think with tdb you won't have any problem like this. No one of the tester had this bug and they had tdb enabled, it should be related to the dalvik cache that's shared if tdb is disabled

Can this be installed over miui 4.5.23 (via system updates) or it needs to be installed after a full wipe?

If you don't want to perform a wipe /data you can, but it's better to enable tdb after the flash (flash it via miui updater app)

Sorry for the question, sure stupid, but what is tdb? I know how to flash ROM but I don't understand what tdb means. Thanks

True Dual Boot, it splits virtually /data so your system partitions are independents each other, it's useful if you have problems like @Acid one and you can have an aosp (there's no one now due to missing sources) and miui on same phone instead having 2 miui

It is working so far. :) Will you do the 4.5.30 version when it is out?
I'll make 2 releases every month. Now I think I'll wait for miui v6, cuz it's useless to work on v5 now when v6 is coming next weeks. Don't worry I'll support this work even if I don't own the device

It is. There is a tutorial on en forum how to enable art. Just there is no point doing that at all especially there is a big chance of bootloop trying to enable art.

Nice to see a custom rom for the Mi3, though I'd really love to see a stock AOSP rom. Why didn't Xiaomi release one, they always did so for previous models.

I guess we'll need kernel sources from Xiaomi for a custom AOSP rom, will they release them? Wouldn't it be possible to use Nexus 5 sources like people did for the Mi2 with the Nexus 4 sources?

It's a huge work. It took months for M1cha to get a nearly bootable kernel without the sources from Xiaomi.

When I try to get back from this ROM to the multilanguage one, my phone and sms messages won't start anymore. I tried clearing cache and dalvik cache, plus phone and messages data, but without any luck. I'd hate to have to wipe my system data in order to install the multilanguage rom, so can anyone help me please? Thanks!
