    Thank you sonic. I have a Redmi 1w wcdma SG model which I previously unbrick to Miui v6, but GPS is sadly not working. In any case could i apply this ROM & any tip on my GPS issue on Miui v6.

    Thanks again. Testing now with Redkat 2...so far it seems to be stuck with the Mi logo; not booting further. I am still able to get into recovery so not a problem as i have my backups. Let me know the next step if any. I can test around for awhile. Anyway My GPS seems to be a problem intermittently since i started using Miui V6 rom.

    Thank you Sonic for the tip. It works now with full boot up to your RK2 ROM. All seems to be working fine with exception to my GPS issue which seems to persist; no idea for now how to solve this.

    So for those who have Redmi 1w HW2013026 (SG model) should be able to apply your Redkat2

    Just to sum up the steps
    -Backup whatever i need using TWRP especially Nvram
    -Do a full wipe.
    -Install Rom
    -install sg kernel
    -reboot

    Did not take long to see both the Mi logo & android logo at the bottom. Install Successful.

    Thanks again sonic. Perhaps you can add necessary info for those with SG model on you first post.

    Hi Sonic,
    Thanks a lot for the work you shared with us.
    I have still two questions for you:
    - What is the drawback of the inverted partitions bug?
    - Is it possible to use the Bluetooth Low Energy stack with your framework now? With Android 4.2 this was not possible, but the Hongmi is supposed to have a BLuetooth LE chip in it. Did someone try that out?

    Partitions inverted - most app showing wrong path, but works fine
    BT LE supported - tested on Mi Band and Mi Band 1s
    @las cavel Have you tried unbrick your device (sp flash tools)? Can be HW problem and SW.

    My GPS issues seems to have self resolved. Went out on a drive today to do some real test seems to be working but not optimal. Should be ok.

    Dear Sonic,
    Okay, I didn't know what Mi Band was, so sorry for my question about BLE.
    I'm still on the MIUI-26.0.0 stable version (MIUI v5). Is it possible to directly switch to your ROM, or do I need to go before to MIUI v6 and only afterwards flash your ROM?
    If the latter is the case, are there still MIUI v6 versions out there? I searched a bit on the "weekly updates" section, but didn't found the ROMs for HM2013023...

    I found them!
    But do I need to switch over to MIUI v6 before switching to your ROM?

    Hi Sonic,
    I'm on your ROM since more than one week and I wanted to thank you again for your great work!
    It runs very smoothly and until now I didn't find any problem in it.

    Hi Sonic1SVK, I have currently installed on my device a MIUI ROM based on the xiaomi.eu 5.12.31.
    May I install yours directly?

    Hi Sonic1SVK , I would like to know whether I can install your ROM directly from my current installed one, which is based on xiaomi.eu 5.12.31.
    I have TWRP 2.8.4.0 too.
    Thank you in advance for your support.
