Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 - kenzo - /e/ OS Pie

Looking forward to see kenzo running /e/ OS Pie :star_struck:
A legendary device, brought back to life by eFoundation. It is already running very well under /e/ OS Nougat.

Offcial Pie support for kenzo in other Custom ROMs

These links are provided in the hope of being useful for /e/ developers.

only official LineageOS Nougat sources avalable for this device.

I linked to each PIE custom ROM source code. They may be based on LOS, but if I am not wrong, each one of them has its own tweaks.

I have a Redmi Note 3, i bought it specifically(2nd hand via ebay) just to run /e/OS, my previous phone was a windows phone so this is my 1st android ever. so yes i support this post!

Welcome to the club @freedapeoples :fist:

How’s your experience with /e/OS so far ?

Installed on my old device which my mom uses now.

Not having a first hand experience though. Checking up on it little by little.

Definitely a new life for the old phone which was my first smart phone.

Haha. Yeah, else she would show me the long list of notifications and ask whether should click on this ad or that ad. :sweat_smile:

She uses facebook though. That kind of beats the purpose and as usual facebook consuming processes and RAM. But it’s her passtime anyway so I let her be.

It does gimme some control over the processes running around. Bliss launcher though is a bit glitchy but patience hasn’t run out with it yet.

i`m glad i chose the Redmi note 3 to install /e/OS as i was able to avoid alot of hassle in install by following a tutorial on youtube that bypassed the xiaomi unlock waiting period + he provided al the links for the tools he used. i think this is the easiest phone to install on. the tutorial is found in my discussion here.. The only downside about my Redmi Note 3 is how fast the battery drains, but i hear its a common problem. Its not a big deal as i use it at home so its always charging.

Maybe your battery is old and needs to be replaced. If you can get a new one, replacing the battery on Redmi Note 3 is a breeze. You don’t need to unscrew even a single screw!

Here are some updates on available LineageOS unofficial builds for Kenzo

As usual, provided in the hope to be useful for /e/OS devs to make an /e/ Pie or Q build for kenzo.

Thxs for the Tip. When i purchased the phone from ebay the seller had mentioned there maybe a issue with the phone, as he had a draining battery issue, he said he replaced it with a brand new battery but the issue persisted which was great for me as i got it well below what others were asking for it. I had thought that switching to /e/OS would fix the battery as more app in the android had the google trackers etc. Battery has seen no change and still drains quick even with killing background apps in /e/OS. So must be the phone. Battery reads as healthy but drains from 80% to 2 percent by the following morning. Anyways it not a bother to me, i only use it for the dreaded whatsapp and riot messenger and light web surfing.
