I'm downloading it now, but wanted to open this thread so anyone who has installed it can comment! You know, the usual stuff: battery life, general stability, GPS performance, installation issues, etc.
Power on + Volume up, in Twrp I select "Install" then select downloaded image, and finally clear davl/cache and reboot. Then I wait boot about 3-4 min....my Mi 5 work. For now all looks ok, but need time to check battery, gps and other stuff.
So far, so good... The update proceeded smoothly (I did it by booting into TWRP > Install > Wipe Cache/Dalvik), took about 5 minutes.
- Tested GPS, and it *might* be a bit better than on 188.8.131.52, with GPS fix in a little under 10 secs. See attached screenshot.
- Fingerprint sensor working OK, cellular/WiFi working OK, Play Store working OK.
- Android version is still 7.0, and security patch level is april 2017.
I have problem with Bluetooth audio. Constantly connect and reconnect. I can't make a call or listening music. Also weather and clock is not the same and there is no weather graphic. The call sound is also not good in my opinion. I will roll back to previous version.
