Lenovo K3 NOTE MIUI 8 Custom ROM based on Android Lollipop 5.0.2 (ahh quite outdated Android version) is now available. Recently Xiaomi released MIUI 8 ROMs for the Mi4i, Redmi 1s, Redmi NOTE 2/3/3G/4G, Mi Max and many more. This K3 NOTE MIUI 8 ROM is not from Xiaomi team but by developer GooDDeath. Yes it is not based on Marshmallow but you can enjoy the MIUI 8 features straight away compromising a little bit by not having the Android Marshmallow update (honestly speaking, it just hardly matters when you have MIUI 8).DISCLAIMER:
Installing custom ROM requires a custom recovery to be installed on your device, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup your all data. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and we cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you. Neither the developer nor we can be held responsible for any disaster that happens to your device after following this guide.
