MIUI 7 Custom ROM for Lenovo A6000/Plus has a lot of new changes and bug fixes unlike MIUI 6 for previous versions which we had installed earlier, but the ROM is based on MIUI 6 but has most of the MIUI 7 features. A lot of users used to complain that the home screen used to lag, but in this version, the home screen is quite smooth. Also, the RAM which is available is 400-500 MB on first boot. After installing applications which run in the background like Facebook/WhatsApp/true-caller then the available RAM left is 100-200 MB. Overall we have found MIUI 7 to be very attractive, and after 5-6 hours of usage we have found it to be stable in terms of installation and working, but the ROM is bit laggy, we cannot guarantee that it will run smooth and without any glitches but as of now we haven’t found any major bugs. We’ll post the bugs once we find it and will try to get a fix for it too. Till then you can head over straight at the bottom of the post to download the MIUI 7 Custom ROM.

UPDATE & REVIEW
After 3rd party application installation we found the performance to be going down rapidly
RAM left is 100-200 after using few apps like facebook/truecaller/messenger
The custom rom is attractive but slow
Performance cannot be guaranteed as there are lots of background services running
Battery backup is good if you’re not using tremendously
