  • Shiv

    Thanks This Rom works great. Camera, music and FM application doesn’t crash.Really good work But how to reboot into recovery after updating CM11 to install

    • Press Vol Up+Vol Down and Power button simultaneously to boot in recovery mode.

      • Shiv

        its not entering into recovery i did as you said.
        If I press vol- and power it enters into Fastboot mode. I think cwm got correpted or anything happened. i need to install gapps now. And network only Edge its displaying thoug 3G enabled. but miui it was showing 3G network.

        • press Vol Up+Vol Down and Power button simultaneously and when the MI Logo appears leave the power button, keep pressing Volumen buttons, it will show an option to boot into recovery or you can ROM Toolbox or use Reboot Recovery app from play store.
          Here –

          and for the network, turn 3G mode on from settings>Mobile Network.

          • Shiv

            Vol + – and power button doesn’t work mi logo appears for fraction of
            second its hard to notice and disappears. and never entered into
            recovery mode.

            some of them said use Vol+ and power button if i
            use this mi log starts appears and phone starts heating if left as is
            for around 3 minutes phone gets heated to come out of this I need to
            press power button for around 10 – 20 second then it will normally boot.
            After this I have installed Rom manager it shows CWM recovery installed
            version V. There also option is there to boot into recovery
            even that option also tries to boot into recovery but hangs on mi logo
            and mobile starts heating.

            Only last time I was able to boot into recovery in miui rom using updater app which has option to boot into recovery before loading this CM11. once phone entered in CM11 never be able to enter into recovery.

            after this I have installed TWRP manager and installed TWRP recovery that also hangs on mi logo screen. I don’t know what is root cause of this or is any problem with recovery or is it something related to hardware itself. I am really frustrated
            with this.

            http://www. igadgetsworld. com/root-xiaomi-redmi-1s
            as per this blog first we have to root using some it contains
            some busybox file etc which will root the phone and then we have to
            install TWRP should the same procedure be followed for installing CWM

            I used your first step to install CWM recvoery using this link
            URL is https://thebroodle. com/xiaomi/redmi-1s/install-cwm-touch-v-6-recovery-in-xiaomi-redmi-1s/

            One more the Link you have given for installing Stock rom
            URL is https:/ /thebroodle. com/xiaomi/redmi-1s/stock-firmware-xiaomi-redmi-1s-miui-v5-stock-rom/
            in that armani_images_JHCCNBD23.0_4.3_3406.tgz is very old
            Latest on URL is https:// bigota. d. miui. com/JHCCNBF36.0/armani_images_JHCCNBF36.0_4.3_cn_5360473a1c.tgz

            and the following link contains many Recovery and Fastboot ROMS
            available in miui forum
            Pleas update the latest link in your website for stock ROM if someone needs.

            If mobile hangs on mi logo after burning stock rom you need to burn again
            using miflash tool in that choose advanced option and select flash all
            this will solve the problem of phone getting stuck in mi logo. by
            default miflash tool select flash_rom_except_storage and so this may not
            clear memory and it will make phone to stuck in mi logo screen so better
            use flash_all using advanced option. Than phone got booted. And
            then entered in recovery successfully did wipe cache,data and dalvick
            cache and updated to CM11 after that no chance getting entered into Recovery
            I have replied again but this time i put spaace url to avoid as spam.
            I have seen the latest one R3 build for CM11 will load that also I think atleast that will solve recovery mode.

        Admin plz help or #abhisekh if you have solved this problem.

  • Sunny Suman

    I have installed CM11 ROM on my Redmi 1S. I am not able to enable my mobile data. Neither 2G nor 3G.

    • from settings go to Mobile Networks and from there turn it on.

      • Sunny Suman

        i have checked th setting everywhere..and it looks fine..But still the proble persists.
        Pls find the ss of the same.

        • this is weird, its working for everyone else, may be a problem with your service provider, or try swapping sims in their slots.

          • Sunny Suman

            Yes its really weird. Sim mobile data is working fine with other handset..and even in this handset it was working fine with MIUI. But after installing CM11 ROM, none of the mobile data is working.

          • Devesh

            Hey Sunny,
            Did you get any solution for mobile data?

          • Deepak

            same problem, i have a single sim installed of airtel in the gsm slot , not able to connect to the mobile network

          • Devesh

            i got it working:

            I use both sim slots. Earlier I was trying only with 1 sim in 3g slot. It did not work.
            Then I inserted another sim in 2g slot and turned on data on 2g slot. Selected appropriate profile and 2g data worked.

            Then I turned off mobile data on second sim (2g) and activated on Primary sim (3g)

            It worked again.

            Things to keep in mind is
            1. In multi Sim settings: See if you have selected the correct sim.
            2. In Data Usage, Enable mobile data on the correct sim which is set as priority for data in multi-sim settings.
            This can be done through Mobile Networks as well.
            In Mobile networks also check if correct access point is selected. (By default none is selected, and I suspect that is the cause of data not working).
            3.Try restarting the phone as well if it doesn’t works the first time.

            By default no ringtone is selected for incoming calls as well, that might be causing the phone not to ring on incoming calls.

            So most of the issues are due to “blank/none” by default selections.

          • lanadekat

            Noob question but sim 2 = 3g slot? or is sim 1 3g slot? I’m gonna try what you did to try to get my data working.

          • Devesh

            Sim one is 3g
            Labelled as wcdma beneath sim slot

          • Devesh

            Got the data working after trying the 2g sim data (it worked) and then switching back to 3g sim data.. Working fine now.

            In Settings-Multi Sim->Data Calls-> try switching between sims.
            It sorted out issue with my data connection.

  • okay

    which rom has led light working ?
    for redmi 1s and has lesser bugs.
    Can we remove cwm recovery ?

    • LED light is working in both the ROMS (Mokee and CWM)

  • Selva Indhiran

    • Ravinder

    So with this one we won’t have that rebooting issue , cz on both cm n mokee when I flash the ROMs n restart n it stucts at mi logo. And games will work on this cm ROM ?

    • yes, the reboot issue has been fixed and games will also work.

      • Prateek Sahu

        Still getting the reboot prob. Sure it is solved?
        Does my restoring my phone to MIUI keep any backlogs of previous installations? Could that be causing any trouble?

        • Khairuddin Bin Ali

          sd-ext is basically an additional partition on the SD card to install apps in it. If you have not created this partition, then it is normal.

    • Jambol

      hello.. i succeed in installing the rom.. got past everything well.. but whenever i need to reboot, it will stuck at mi logo.. i dont think that the problem is solved yet.. any suggestion here?

  • Roh

    That reboot issue is kinda fixed but that system data problem is still there , internal card says 4.6gb is for system datadata, fix this n this ROM is all good

  • Roh

    Any way to fix that system data , now it eats up 4.6gb of my storage , it shows fine when I first flash the ROM , but as soon as I reboot it reserves the remaining storage as system data , help

    • Prateek Sahu

      Hi Roh. can you help me with the reboot problem? Any additional measures to be taken to fix it?
      I cleaned data,cache and davlik cache. And then proceeded to install cm-11, then gapps and then rebooted. All worked but on reboot stuck at mi logo.

      • Roh

        Nope man , u did all right . I am having the same problem so m not rebooting it no mater what n if u really waana reboot , do soft reboot instead of normal rebooting. And if u want that rebooting problem to be fixed then as soon as u setup cm , reboot it instantly if it sticks then remove battery for 20 sec n then reboot . but that way idk y it will reserve like 4gigs for system that’s irritating n only that way reboot problem fixes for me but storage is essential for me so I fill up the card as I flash the ROM n then reboot and cz of no space it reserves nothing . but if I restart 3rd time it sticks at mi . that’s y using soft reboot

        • Prateek Sahu

          Yea…okay…hope this reboot problem gets sorted out soon… Other than this all working smoothly for me

          • Roh

            Atlast found a solution , use twrp recovery instead of cwm n it will be fixed , I havent tried it yet but for most of them it gets fixed

          • Prateek Sahu

            Ya, i saw that too..was thinking of tryng that out today…lets hope it gets fixed…

          • Prateek Sahu

            Hi Roh, did you succeed? I installed twrp but in that i was unable to even get cm11 booted even for 1st time. 😛

          • Roh

            So now its working fine ?,I didn’t tries twrp as ATM I don’t have a PC with me . and is someone facing the screen is not showing up after switching off automatically , when u press power key it should show but on mine sometime it doesn’t show up so o have to restart it

          • Prateek Sahu

            install the latest twrp via fastboot. Do a clean install, it should work. I had tried on an older version of twrp and screen wasnot showing up during reboot system. But a clean install of latest twrp and the r3 revision of cm11 worked. I have been using it for a day now with 4-5 restarts, working perfectly.

          • Prateek Sahu

            Working!…on TWRP…(Y)

  • Prateek Sahu

    Admin, please help us on the reboot difficulty. Thats the only thing keeping me from using this…:(

    • Prateek Sahu

      SOLVED. Try TWRP recovery instead on cwm. It worked on TWRP

  • Mei Mei

    Hi! After flashing the cyanogen, is it possible to move apps to sd card? I heard xiaomi phone has the problem of not being able to that and rooting allows it, but they never really says which app to use? Which one do you use to move app to sd for this ROM? Can you make a video for this? I’m planning to get a Ziaomi 1s but I’m currently hesitating due to the fact I cant move apps to the sd card…

  • Aditya Choudhary

    Hi MaiTreya PaTni I have installed your last build (cm-11-20140917-UNOFFICIAL-armani)

    which is working great on my device except for the led, do i have to installed your current build can you please tell me what are the changes…

  • Alex

    I was expecting the worst when I installed this rom but wow sir. Call me impressed. It is fast and stable which is all I wanted. There might be some bugs I have yet to uncover. But I definitely won’t be going back to miui. Thanks for your hard work. You rock.

    • Thanks for the review, will post an update soon, keep visiting.

  • Shiv

    R3 build work fine. Feels screen Colour temperature is little bit warmer as compared with micromax a116. While playing videos using MX player there is no difference between hardware and software acceleration in both cases video seems to play using software acceleration itself.
    Anyway it’s stable than miui Rom.

    • Shiv

      while loading stock rom use latest rom and in Miflash tool select flash_all this is there in advanced option.
      otherwise it will hang on mi logo after burning rom.

  • Algie

    Everything is great until I reboot… It stucks at Mi logo… after a while, nothing happens…. How could I fix this?

    • jambol

      enter cwm, wipe cache and dalvik.

    • davidinuk

      Are you sure it gets stuck there? When I have done it it sits on the screen for around 5 mins, but then finishes off whatever it was doing and boots up.

  • Shiv

    Hey dude, todya i noticed that sim 2 ringtone is not coming only vibrating but the same is not with sim1 ringtone and vibration both working. what is the fix for sim2 ringtone?

    • davidinuk

      the ringtone settings for the sims are somewhere else! Bad design!!

      They are in the settings of the phone app!

      • Shiv

        got it thanks, its big deal to set ringtone for sim 2 even i have struggled to activate mobile internet in sim2 for that we need to go for multi sim settings there only if enabled it will work otherwise not.

    • you can update directly by flashing it from recovery, no need for installing MIUI.

  • jinky123

    This release works fine on my Mi 1S not found any bugs yet and everything works as it should , well happy.

    • thanks for your review, keep visiting for more updates 😀

  • hitesh

    Plz I have little requests.
    1. Please make an option to show data rate.
    2. Amount of free ram is 350 MB in fresh install Is it normal??
    3. sound quality is lower than miui rom

    • hitesh

      Android 1 devices are getting over 500+MB free ram

    • Hitesh

      Reboot into recovery and quick boot option is not available

      • CWM Recovery does not have any quick boot option.

      • abhishekgoel137

        This is how rebooted in recovery mode..

        Step 1 : Click on power button and the menu will come with reboot option
        Step 2 : press on reboot.
        Step 3 : As soon as you press on reboot, keep pressing volume up and power button together, you’ll go in recovery mode..

        NOTE : to install google apps, I downloaded the google apps package zip for cynogen11 and put it in SD card.

    • for data transfer rate you can use gravity box module in Xposed Framework and yeah sound is slightly less then stock miui but the quality has been improved, this will be fixed in the next update.

  • Selva Indhiran

    Two request in Build R5
    1. Move apps to sd card option
    2. Incoming call and outgoing calls notification which sim.
    thanks in advance.

  • DK

    Could you please share how much battery you guys are getting with ROM? I am hardly getting about 8 hours in total with a screen time for 2.5 hours only.

    • lanadekat

      yes battery life is bad with this rom, but for me it runs a whole day, but I only use my phone to listen to music and sometimes to play a simple game.

  • robsan

    Why is there no headset icon in the status bar when I connect one? Other than that, great ROM! Bye bye MIUI.

  • Amit Kumar

    i cant get to use 3g in cyanogenmod. plus theres sometimes a patch on the screen which goes by itself, i cant do anything about it

    • Srinivasan S

      I too cant get to use 3g. Is there any patch / trick ?

    • 3g is working all fine in this rom.

  • Sammy

    games like assassin creed ,BIA2 & Asphalt 8 are not working after flashing with CM11

    • no, they are working and even the gaming performance is also increased in this rom.

  • ¤*XiaoMan*¤

    can we hope to have the ability to move the app to the SD card on the next version.
    It is an essential function when an internal memory of only 6GB.
    Without that it does not much interest to pass on cyanogen.

    PS: sorry for my English, I’m French.

    • yes, this feature is added in the updated version of Mokee Rom, will post it soon here -

      • ¤*7 Geeko*¤

        Thank, i have Installed Mokee rom
        But I can’t move app on SD card.
        Are you Sure It’s possible ?

    • Akash Raj

      In mokee rom ,its possible.

  • Devesh

    Hey Maitreya,
    For me the battery is performing poorly. I got 2 days sometimes but mostly 1 day. I am not a heavy user and like to optimize things. I use greenify to let only the necessary apps+service (less than 10) running in background
    With MiUI V5 sometimes I used to get 2 days and sometimes 1 day.

    I switched to Cynogenmod 11 (4.4) but I am only getting one day here as well.

    The worst part is, screen is shown as the major consumer, while I hardly surf, watch videos or play games.

    When gave 2 days of backup:
    Screen:22 %
    Wi-Fi 20%
    Cell Standby : 15%
    Phone idle : 14%
    Screen on time: 1hr 34 mins

    While it gave 1 day 7hr 45 min (15% remaining)of backup
    Audible: 22%
    Screen:21 %
    Wi-Fi 15%
    Cell Standby : 11%
    Phone idle : 10%
    Screen on time 1hr 54 mins

    Screen timer is set to 15 seconds with auto brightness control.

    Plus I am always connected to W-Fi So I expect at-least two days from this phone. My 1.5 years old Canvas 2 gives me more backup than this new Redmi 1s.

    Any inputs on why the screen is consuming so much battery?
    The 2 day backup is rare. 90 % of the time I get only a day’s backup from the phone.
    Why is there this inconsistency?
    I suspect its a hardware bug as Same problem is seen with both MiUi V5 and Cynogenmod 11

    • davidinuk

      I agree with you that the battery on this phone is quite poor. 🙁

      My only consolation is that this rom is not as bad as the MIUI rom!

      • Devesh

        MIUI gave me nightmares.. one morning I downloaded a new OTA update and all google services stopped working.. I spent the day without my contacts as I was out that day.. the same evening I rooted and installed the Cynaogenmod 11. Yes except battery life all is acceptable.
        Still I am not sure how the screen is consuming more than 30% of the battery only usage being seeing notifications and making calls. If someone can confirm its a hardware cmpatibility issue or just bad quality hardware?

  • Aabid Hashmi

    Unable to change or set SIM’s Names
    Can you tell me how to edit ?

  • Akshat

    Battery issues, it was giving better battery backup in MIUI rom. And sound loudness is slightly decreased. everything else is fine.

  • doop

    SIm name should be on edge on status as it is not looking good.

      how did you get the internet to work?

  • crixx

    I’m having a hard time getting 3G connectivity to work sometimes. apparently, if i only use sim slot 1, data connection won’t work as opposed to using both sim slots.

    • crixx

      Oh and also as of last night, i was having crazy inaccurate battery readings. my battery status was in 34% before i played a game, and after a couple of seconds inside the game, the battery suddenly dropped to 1%.

  • lanadekat

    Is the developer working on a fix for the mobile data 2g/3g not working? Cus I tried everything but nothing fixed it. Or is there any other 4.4.4 rom that works 100%? Cus I really want it to work and miui sucks.

    • Lakshminarayanan K

  • Sreenivasa Upadhyaya

    The messaging app does not have option to slect and copy particular portion of the text. Also no biuilt in option to use the numbers present in the messages.

  • kzendra

    I have cm-11-20141117. It seems that the phone keeps unlocking in my pocket when I recieve SMS or email.
    It would be nice to have feature like the one in MIUI which disables unlock screen if proximity sensor is blocked…

  • kzendra

    Where can I report a bug?

    I have 2 sim cards. One of them is in roaming (SIM2). When WiFi is connected, there is no R sign on network indicator for SIM2. Only when WiFi is disconnected the R sign appears.

  • kzendra

    Sorry, only if I try to connect that card to internet (roaming disabled)…

  • Buddy

    The only bug I have encountered as of now is when I am in a call the screen will be shown with opened clock app and there is no way to disconnect the call…I have enabled the option to disconnect the call with power button…
