Custom ROMs

The fact that the Mi Max 3 has Oreo out of the box also means it comes with support for Project Treble, something that is already being relished by the developer community. At the moment, there are already several Treble custom ROMs that are working on the Mi Max 3 and while not everything is rosy, most of the stuff is working perfectly.

Here’s the current list of Treble ROMs that are supported on the Mi Max 3.

  • Android 9 Pie GSI
  • LineageOS (Unofficial)
  • AOSP 8.1
  • Pixel Experience (Bluetooth isn’t working, fix coming soon)
  • Resurrection Remix O v.6.1.0 (Bluetooth isn’t working, fix coming soon)
  • Bootleggers 2.3 (Bluetooth isn’t working, fix coming soon)

You should install any of the custom ROMs from above only after confirming that it is working for your device.
