In addition to those, before trying this ROM, here are some gentle warnings for you. The MIUI experience is so-so, with several benefits and some letdowns, and I already delved deep into it so you should read that if you want all the details. I won’t repeat myself beside saying that MIUI 10 fixes some of the issues of 9.6, and I do like some of it, but the constant nags, permission requests, and ads left a sour taste in my mouth. Screenshots taken on MIUI 9.6, before I updated to MIUI 10 stable. The Camera app’s UI is similar to the Mi A2’s so I won’t go over it again; the Dual Camera watermark is also enabled by default, same as the beautification effect for the front camera.
Like most of the newer devices, it also features a dual camera setup on the back (12 + 5 MP). In my experience with this ROM, the battery life was just the same as the stock ROM, but I was able to customize a few things here and there.

If boot takes longer than usual after setting a new fingerprint or a custom prop, try changing the boot stage to post-fs-data. If you suddenly can’t find some apps, or that you aren’t offered the latest version of an app, it might be because of having changed the device fingerprint. This module can usually only really help with the ctsProfile check, by spoofing the device fingerprint. If you can’t pass basicIntegrity, there’s probably something else going on with your device, but there is a possibility that changing the device fingerprint can make this pass as well. If you can’t get things working, see “Miscellaneous MagiskHide issues” above. A common reason for issues with booting the device or with system apps force closing, etc, is having enabled Device simulation. This feature is not needed for passing SafetyNet’s CTS profile check.
