Havoc OS v2.8 Android 9.0 Pie for Redmi Note 5 Whyred (Pro/Ai/Global)

Download Havoc OS v2.5 latest version based on Android 9.0 Pie for Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro/Global/Ai/China codename Whyred.

One thing that we liked so much about Android (rather than iOS) is the availability of custom ROMs. There are a plethora of custom Android ROMs. This is good especially for enthusiast users who want to have full advantages of their very own phones.

This fact is also applicable for Xiaomi devices. There are many custom ROMs to try as alternatives to the stock MIUI ROM.

Please don’t get me wrong. Xiaomi’s MIUI is the best skinned version of Android mobile operating system. Especially for Xiaomi devices, obviously.

Nevertheless, the sleekness and simplicity offered by custom ROMs are sometimes too tempting. It’s just irresistible.

We have heard some of the popular ones such as LineageOS, Pixel Experience, Resurrection Remix, ArrowOS, and so on. It is never boring to know more.

Meet Havoc OS! Another Android custom ROM based on AOSP v9.0 Pie. It’s just like the Pixel Experience. It offers the sleekness of AOSP Android 9.0 and the awesomeness of Google Pixel looks.

Unlike Pixel Experience, Havoc OS comes with o Google Apps (gapps) built in. Hence, you may need to download and flash it afterwards.

Havoc OS boasts Material Design v2. It transforms your Xiaomi phone to look like Google Pixel 3 phone. It is very elegant and lightweight.

The best part, the Havoc OS ROM supports Spectrum Power Profile already. It means you as the user have full control over the system performance.

Another feature that we like about Havoc OS is the “Double Tap to Sleep“.
