AbhiX ROG Edition from Edunil is one of the best custom ROM available for Xiaomi smartphones. I’ve used it on my Redmi Note 7 from a long time and right now using it on Redmi K20 Pro which gives me immense performance and stability over the stock MIUI 12.
The custom ROM AbhiX ROG Edition is inspired by the ASUS ROG Edition which mainly focuses on performance and better battery backup. Once you install this custom ROM on your Xiaomi device, you will start feeling the first boot’s difference.
Abhishek Shakya or better known as AbhiX Shakya, is the project founder of AbhiX ROG Edition custom ROM. Several Xiaomi devices are supported, and each device has its maintainers, which we will discuss later in this article.
What Is AbhiX ROG Edition
AbhiX ROG Edition from Edunil is a custom ROM for Xiaomi smartphones based mainly on the official and latest MIUI Beta and Stable Builds. The main motto of the ROM is to deliver the best performance and gaming experience to the users.
Many devices such as Redmi Note 5 Pro (WhyRed) and Redmi Note 6 (Tulip) that do not have the official latest version released have got the newest MIUI ROMS ported from Redmi Note 7 (Lavender).
Features Of AbhiX ROG Edition
There are many features, tweaks and modifications done to the MIUI ROM to make the best custom ROM for Xiaomi smartphones without bugs and instability. You will also find some attractive themes included with the ROM.
1. PUBG Smooth + 90FPS Enabled
AbhiX ROG Edition is a gaming ROM, and it delivers what it promises. You get PUBG HD and Extreme Modes enabled with 90 FPS gaming. Play PUBG with full graphics support and smoothly without any lag—one of the best features of this ROM which you will love using it.
2. SafetyNet Passed Without Root
SafetyNet is a device certification that tells Google Play Store about the authenticity of a device. In custom ROMS, it is uncertified without the help of root privileges. In AbhiX ROG Edition you get SafetyNet passed without root. There is no other custom ROM that gives this certification.
You will be able to use Banking apps such as GPay, Paytm, Payzapp, without any issues. Even if you root the ROM, you will still access the above apps and pass the SafetyNet.
3. Debloated ROM
AbhiX ROG Edition custom ROM is free from any Chinese bloatware or pre-installed applications from Xiaomi. The ROM is clean from such unwanted apps and saves the internal storage of the device.
4. Display And Color Wheel Support
This feature will bring a new experience at using your device. Thanks to Pritish for working on this feature and help the team fix the colour wheel version. With Colour Wheel you can customize the colours of your screen according to your choice.
5. Performance And Smoothness
I have personally felt the difference while using this custom ROM. The ROM is well optimized to deliver the best performance and stability. AbhiX ROG Edition is better known for this, and you will feel the superfine and super smoothness of the ROMS in terms of transitions or app opening. There is no lag whatsoever in this ROM.
We have noticed on many custom ROMS that the screen mirroring feature is broken. However, in this ROM, you will be able to cast your mobile network to any external display like a TV or a projector.
7. New Settings Layout
The settings menu is well organized now than before. Many new changes have been done in the Settings menu like new, improved icons and more attractive design has been implemented.
8. New Charging Animations
The developer has added some beautiful charging animations that turns on while you plug in the charger while the device screen is turned off. This gives a rich user experience. Check out three types of charging animations below:
9. ROG Theme
New ROG Edition themes have been added with static wallpapers, live wallpapers of ROG and much more exciting stuff.
10. Chrome Browser For Android
The default MI Browser has been removed and replaced with Chrome Browser for Android. Simultaneously, many users have complained that they’re unable to download Chrome from Google Play Store. Chrome was implemented and set as the default browser in AbhiX ROG Edition.
