The only way China improves technology – stealing others datas. US intelligence says China din’t make anything on their own past 10yrs without stealing from other countries

I am flashing custom roms since many years & I will suggest you to Only proceed if you know how to do it…It’s very risky for people who never done it before…First do some research in XDA forums…If you flash it wrongly, you may brick your phone totally…

crDroid Q. Latest version 6.5. Q builds are still missing some features compared to Pie but the latter is now deprecated.

Rooting also doesn’t
You can do whatever you want with Xiaomi phones

Not even rooting voids warranty. Unless you flash the wrong firmware or overclock the CPU/GPU/display beyond safe limits.

Worthless Mi Browser
Don’t even remember when I last used it
Always prefer via & edge
Also avoid Logging into your Mi Account+ Enable Auto Sync call/sms log /backup of pictures (If you feel paranoid about unauthorised data share)

+ Almost all companies collect data n store in their servers (local/non-local)
This is a legal thing..its always there in tnc
Even Windows 10 has it (enabled by default) & all those beta android apps too

PS: Not a fan of MIUI
Always prefer custom rom unless its my secondary phone

Wrong Firmware is also fine..if the phone doesn’t bootup
You can simply say..OTA update gone wrong : D

Yes of course! Most Xiaomi folks have very little idea about these things.

I tried once but gave up realising the banking and upi apps will no longer be safe.

Many folks report that updates make their Xiaomi devices slower.I wouldn’t know as I have almost never installed MIUI updates in any of my devices.
Makes sense considering the amount Xiaomi copies over from Apple!

Check this out forum.xda-developers.com/mi-a2/development
Usually the ROM that’s been around for long, is regularly updated with monthly security patches and plenty of users is a good place to start. Lineage OS if official can always be counted upon although a tad too minimalistic.

Custom roms from reputed developers like Lineage, Resurrection Remix, Havoc ete are as secured as your original firmware…XDA forums have billions of members worldwide & their moderators & admins will never allow any risky rom thread to publish as millions of members use those roms & share their feedbacks on daily basis in the rom threads publicly…I am there also since like ages…

But yes if you download a custom rom from any other site than XDA, you will be at risk…

Banking apps check for a thing in the firmware which is called a “Safetynet” which can only be provided by original firmware manufacturer like Google…Custom roms wont have this feature but that does not mean that your banking apps wont be safe with custom roms…I am flashing custom roms since like last 10 years on my main phones without any problem with all banking apps…

Sometimes these custom roms from reputed devs are more secured, faster & even provide excellent battery lives than your original firmware because in XDA, only recognized developers are allowed to post their custom roms & millions of people worldwide tests those roms everyday…Plus devs who make these custom roms will never include something in their rom which can steal your data which many original firmware do…
