MIUI 8 Logo

The most beautiful MIUI 8 has finally arrived for Xiaomi devices and so for our YU Yureka. So after MIUI 7, here comes my MIUI 8 Global and China Beta/Developer ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus.

The new version of MIUI is indeed colorful with its redesigned beautiful UI. System app like Dialer, Calendar, Contacts are more colorful and the color tones used are more refreshing. The notification shade now offers a much more dynamic experience, with core functions exposed and hidden through delicate scrolling. The system UI is now smoother and battery backup is much improved. Many new features are also added.

This MIUI 8 Global/China Developer ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. This Custom ROM is ported from xiaomi.eu unofficial MIUI 8 weekly release which is fully translated into English and is multilingual. Thus, this MIUI 8 is actually a Global version.

Remember this MIUI 8 ROM is not an official release from MIUI team; this is just a ported ROM from Redmi 3. And MIUI 8 is itself in Beta stage so don’t expect zero bug.

Disclaimer: This ROM has been tested and verified to be stable for daily use but there may be some unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.

Some Tips

  • After first boot you may feel little lag but it will go after few hours of use. So don't panic.
  • MIUI does not support NTFS file system. So better use FAT formatted SD Card and USB. But if you have already a NTFS formatted SD Card then use Paragon exFAT, NTFS & HFS+ App to mount it.
  • You may feel little battery drain since it is still in beta stage. It will be fixed in the upcoming builds. (Fixed in Latest builds after 6.6.30)
  • Do not flash MIUI Official OTA Updates, it will BRICK your device.

[ROM] ColorOS 3.0 Beta for Yureka and Yureka Plus [Englishized][PORT]

14 comments
ColorOS-3.0 LOGO

ColorOS 3.0 Globalized Beta ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus [Fully Englishized] [Latest][Android Lollipop 5.1.1][ARM64][PORT]

OPPO’s ColorOS is an awesome custom Android OS forked from AOSP. This ROM is specially developed for OPPO devices and comes with many handy features which make OPPO smartphones stand out. This colorful OS comes with plenty of customization capabilities with its own online theme store. Custom touchscreen gesture is another promising feature. Nicely quoted in the official site:

“ColorOS is an OS that combines speed, efficiency and stability to bring pixels to life.”

After my MIUI 7 Global and China Developer ROM, here comes my ColorOS 3.0 Beta [Globalized] ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus.

Color OS 3.0 (V3.0.0_160527_Beta) Globalized ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and comes with many new features. Since this is Globalized Edition so there are no Chinese apps and is multilingual.

NOTE: This ColorOS ROM is not an official release for ColorOS Team/OPPO. It is just a ported ROM from OPPO R7 Plus, so don’t expect zero bug.

This ROM is based on ARM64 firmware so your device needs to be upgraded to 64 bit firmware. [Yureka/Yureka+ Cyanogen OS users can upgrade to 64 bit firmware by flashing Cyanogen OS Lollipop OTA update.]

Disclaimer: This ROM has been tested and verified to be stable for daily use but there may be some unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.
ColorOS 3.0 UI
ColorOS 3.0 Awesome UI

Features

Eye Pleasing and Comfortable UI: ColorOS 3.0 comes with great new fine-tuned icons and a Single Layer Launcher for easy and smart access. (The UI resembles like that of iOS)

Great Customizations: ColorOS comes with awesome themes with its own Theme Store. It also has Lockscreen Magazine and status bar customizations.

Dirac HD Sound®: ColorOS comes with a highly integrated music player with a nice looking UI. And its Dirac HD Sound® delivers unique acoustic optimization with nice bass and an immersive multi-dimensional listening experience. Learn more about Dirac HD Sound®

Custom Gestures: ColorOS comes with seamless gesture support for a hassle free experience.

Screen-off Gestures: You can use gestures to turn on the phone or open an app or control music when your phone’s screen is off.

Screen-on Gestures: You can also use gestures for different tasks like taking screenshot, single-handed mode etc. when your phone’s screen is turned on.

Outstanding Camera: ColorOS Camera Software is the best camera software available for any android device. It is very much fine tuned to provide the best balance between quality, detail, sharpness and colors and thus provide best in type results. All thanks to OPPO’s Pure Image 3.0+ technology.

Apart from this, it also comes with many camera modes and plugins to improve your photography experience—Voice Shot, Ultra HD, Beautify, HDR, GIF,  RAW, Double Exposure and more.

So this is really a superb camera software to compliment YUREKA Plus’s superb camera hardware.

Other Exciting Features: There are many other nice features in ColorOS like Free Screenshot, Eye Protection Display, Smart Call, Easy Dial, Cover Mode etc. etc.

How to Install

  1. Download the latest build of ColorOS ROM and Gapps for ColorOS (link provided) for Yureka or Yureka Plus
  2. Reboot to TWRP Recovery
  3. Wipe data, system, cache and dalvik cache from advanced wipe menu
  4. Flash ColorOS ROM
  5. Flash Gapps for ColorOS (you can flash Gapps also after first boot)
  6. Reboot (first boot may take up to 15 to 20 mins.)
  7. After boot, complete ColorOS 3.0 setup and enjoy or do the following!
NOTE: If you want to enjoy the full Englishized version of the ROM the you have to edit the build.prop as directed: change persist.sys.oppo.region=CN to persist.sys.oppo.region=US (you can use build.prop editor app for the purpose)

Bugs and Workarounds

First I have to tell you that the ROM has no major bug and is very much stable.
  • Torch icon in notification drawer is not working. So, please use the Flashlight app provided for torch. ;)
  • You may feel little lag at the beginning. But it will go after using few hours as the OS gets settled. You can also use custom kernels for better performance.
  • If you are facing slow charging issue then change kernel. But default kernel more stable.
  • ColorOS screen-off gestures not working except double-tap-to-wake. But you can use @Vishal Gohel’s GeXture App available on Google Play for more screen-off gestures.
  • Some ColorOS Camera plugins not working (like panorama etc.) due to different camera sensor in Yureka.
  • If you find your background apps are auto-killed then got to Settings >> Battery >> "Your" App >> Disable 'Freeze background apps' and 'Auto optimize...' done.
  • More bugs found?! Then please notify me.
I am working (in my free time obviously) to fix these bugs. So it may take time and please don’t repeat the bugs already mentioned here. But if you have any fix for these bugs or found any other bug, then your suggestions are very much invited.

Fix for Titanium Backup
  1. Install Busybox 42
  2. Disable 'Mount namespace separation' in SuperSU
  3. Reboot
  4. Then Titanium Backup Will work.:)
Special thanks to @blackarrow for this method.:)


Some Tips

  • The ROM may lag at the beginning since ColorOS requires some time to settle. So please give some time to it.
  • To get outstanding battery backup in standby mode, turn off wifi, data and gps.
  • You can use other custom kernels if you are not satisfied with the default kernel. One tested kernel is Velocity Kernel v. 10.2 or below (because later versions are creating problems with camera)
