Hello, my experience with /e/ on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Whyred :
First I Unlocked my bootloader, installed TWRP 15 days ago and followed the wiki instructions to install /e/ on whyred.
But, the first time I only erased data, caches & system. The /e/ rom installed itself with success but I think some Xiaomi prior datas were kept on the phone somehow, MicroG was acting weird, push notification only at phone boot, the phone was a little bit slow… I was not happy with it.
I decided to install it another time and I erased everything, all erase options of TWRP and install /e/ back and give another try.
This time all was working great : All is working great out of the box : clock, drive sync, cloud sync, calendar sync, contacts sync, e.email sync, MicroG, push notifications for apps… Battery last ~ 2 days. My phone is rooted, off course, and all my apps are working great, I upgraded to 0.5-201904187440 by OTA without problem.
One little problem when I installed adaway, I had to whitelist “mtalk.google.com” (and same thing in all adguard, blokada or similar apps) and my MicroG push notifications come back again. I have 130 applications on my phone (yes I know, too many, some I even don’t use daily) and everything is working great so far.
Thanks /e/ team !
Notes: I remember in a cyanogen forum, from a dev who said everytime you flash a new rom, you should flash it 2 times on the go, why, I don’t know…
