POSP v2.3 ROM for Redmi Note 8 (Ginkgo)

POSP v2.3 ROM for Redmi Note 8 (Ginkgo) 1

This is the first official custom Android ROM available for Redmi Note 8 Snapdragon (codename Ginkgo). Enter POSP ROM! The acronym stands for Potato Open Source Project, an aftermarket ROM developed by a team of developers committed to delivering a stable yet the feature-rich operating system for mobile phones.

The team behind POSP handpicks all the features included within the ROM. Being always on the latest Android version is one of them. This makes sure your phone on the latest features and security patches.

POSP ROM v2.3 for Redmi Note 8 is still based on Android 9.0 Pie. It would be nice to see its rebased build from Android 10. Nevertheless, all the key features and the secret sauce offered by POSP Android are too tempting to resist.

According to Ash4win, the contributor of POSP on XDA, many aspects of the system are fully functioning. All major hardware-related features also work properly including Wifi, Bluetooth, Wifi Hotspot, USB Tethering, Telephony, Phone, Mobile Data, GPS, VoLTE, Camera, GPS, Audio, Fingerprint, and so on. The SELinux setting of POSP for Redmi Note 8 is Permissive.
