Custom ROM VR 11.0 – Android L Experience for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G

A few days ago I came across a custom ROM for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA) which is a bug free ROM providing Android Lollipop experience.  Here is my review of the ROM.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA) is a beast of a device with MIUI 5 ROM (based on Jelly Bean) pre-installed, powered by MediaTek MTK6592 Octa Core Processor with 2 GB RAM, 8 GB Flash storage, 5.5 inch HD display & many more high end specs.

VR 11.0 is a KitKat 4.4.2 based Custom ROM to give Android Lollipop experience on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA).  It has a Cool Boot Animation, Decent Battery Backup, Pleasant Appearance, Smooth Operations & Stunning Sound Quality.

VR 11.0 Boot Animation



Cool Boot Animation :

A Cool Boot Animation with moving dots that reminds of former Windows logo formation.




Battery & SOT



Decent Battery Backup :

A full charge lasts a decent 24 hours (approx.) with 8 hours of Screen On Time which is a fair performance by the standards of today’s Smart Phone Battery Backups.



Lock Screen & Home Screen



Pleasant Appearance :

It has stunning high quality Material Design Lock Screen & Home Screen Wall Papers based on Android L material design.




Google Camera



Google Camera :

Google Camera App enhances camera experience with Photo Sphere, Panorama, Lens Blur & HDR.




Nova Launcher



Nova Launcher :

This ROM uses Nova Launcher which helps user in detailed & minute customisation of device display, animations, styling etc. like :

  • Desktop Grid for Icons (upto 12X12),
  • Icon Size, Style & Layout,
  • Home Screen Indicator Style & Color,
  • App & Widget Drawer,
  • Docking,
  • Folder Styling,
  • Gesture & Input,
  • Unread Counter (Optional feature needs additional app to be installed), &
  • Backup & Import.



Other important & useful Apps pre-included in the ROM are as under :


Super Su & Root Explorer


Xposed Framework & XLED


Audio FX, MX Player & TuneIn Radio (Apart from FM)


LockScreen Lollipop, Material Weather Widget, Heads Up & Flat Style Colored Bars

I used this ROM for 4 continuous days & it worked smoothly without any bugs.  My overall experience with this ROM has been satisfactory but hardcore MIUI fans like me are going to miss following awesome features :

Security (Anti Virus, Cleaner, Permission Manager etc.),
QR Scanner,
Call Recorder,
Call/SMS Blocker,
Private Messages &
many other features which are added to MIUI regularly.
