Did you think that Redmi Note 8 Pro could not be moddated? And instead you can ...

It is true that the always rival producer of the much more appreciated Qualcomm is not really everyone's favorite; it is also true that the prices, leavened due to the novelty and the distributors, of the successor of the Notes redmi 7 Pro they are not really low as expected; it is true that a processor MediaTek does not allow customization and modding ... but no! We remained on the idea that this house was the worst of all mainly for this reason but surprisingly the kernel source code was released which will allow all owners of Notes redmi 8 Pro to modulate your device at will (but within limits). We talk about the kernel based on Android Pie since we don't know yet when the tenth release of the operating system will be released for this device.

The bearer of the new gaming processor Helio G90T, new bet of Redmi not really successful given the latest data, it was advertised as direct contender of the Snapdragon 730 and managed to compete even with a SoC of the caliber of Snapdragon 810. One of the bigger in MediaTek however, even more than the performance allowed by the proprietary chips, is the lack of customization and possibilities in modding which, on the contrary, has made possible the emergence of the fierce enemy on the market Qualcomm. The device in question, however, seems to be a guinea pig in addition to being the first to have mounted a gaming chip built by a house used by the Xiaomi brand only for Redmi Note 2, Redmi Note 2 Pro and Redmi Note 3 (with MediaTek variant), is the first to have received kernel source code to allow independent developers to customize it all.

We want to thank you XDA for having signaled to us this possibility that could (perhaps, but probably not) mark a new frontier for the future chips of the Taiwanese giant. There is one thing to point out: although Xiaomi has released these codes, it must be said that they are not complete. Indeed it seems that missing touchscreen firmware. So maybe you have to wait a little bit before you have the complete ones, assuming they could be, as suggested by the XDA developers, still in the loading phase. In any case, I personally think that a great step has been taken by the Taiwanese company: the simple support for customizing ROMs is symptomatic of an opening for a really large slice of users, which is of little interest to a super-performing device that is satisfied. We could, in the future, see interesting implications from MediaTek and therefore, apart from criticism, it is necessary to see what it will have in servant for the future.

I am a language student, specialized in Chinese. What brought me closer to Xiaomi is having discovered that there are valid alternatives in the world with a good quality-price compromise. I believe that the awareness that perfection does not exist in the world of smartphones must be put first of all, in order to avoid unnecessary and sterile controversy about the supremacy of one or the other brand.
