I do not create develop any kind of custom roms, so i will not credit myself for the creation of this rom. This rom was created/developed by some hard working developers, they are the reason for this post. And also this is very early build so alot of bugs should be expected.
Be sure to read the post thoroughly and follow the instructions in same order, else you might end up with non-functional device. Read out the bugs list, that can help you later understanding other issues.

My experience with OxygenOS 10 For Redmi Note 5 Global Whyred From OnePlus 7

So, i have been using this rom on my 2 years + old device and its smooth and a lot better than other Android 10 custom roms for whyred till now. Everything that i need are working fine. You don't need to flash vold patch on this bulid. You get some error messages on some special occasions but that's not very concerning as you can simply ignore it and nothing happens.

Alright before we proceed to flash OxygenOS 10 For Redmi Note 5 Global Whyred From OnePlus 7 on our device you should read what is currently working bugs list on this rom.

What is functional and stable:
Almost everything works fine like from sound, screen recording hotspot, live wallpaper, VoLTE, navigation gestures, fingerprint etc.


Some issues/not working:
  • Some gestures are not working
  • Bluetooth headset does not work but transferring files does (small ones)
  • Some error messages while powering but can be ignored
  • Dolby Sound
  • Default SMS app wont work with VoLTE (Use Messages form google or whatever)

Some Tips:
Sometimes later, after playing around with settings, i found something unusual, it wasn't listed on bugs list form the developers. When Ambient display is on, after locking the screen i wont wake, i had to force reboot using volume up + down + power button. So you will also need to disable ambient display if you encounter such issue. In my case had to turn off ambient display.


Before flashing confirm device configurations matches below
  • Current Rom : Android 9 Pie or later
  • CPU : Snapdragon 636
  • Boot loader should be unlocked (get xda on the phone)
