Unlike stock Android and other custom Android ROMs, MIUI has a different way of handling the default applications on Xiaomi devices like Mi 3, Mi 4, Redmi 1S and Redmi Note. Instead of offering default program settings to open a file or webpage, MIUI forces users to use the pre-installed applications rather than giving the option to choose a specific user installed app and then showing the Always or Just Once option, as seen in a typical Android phone. This can be annoying in case you want to open URLs using Chrome browser but they always launch in the default MIUI browser. Even if you Clear defaults for the stock apps, then still MIUI won’t show the ‘Open with’ option and you’ll be contended with the defaults apps only.

Earlier, we shared ‘How to root Xiaomi Mi 3 Indian version’ easily by installing the necessary files through Updater, both for rooting and unrooting. Perhaps, if you’ve updated Mi 3 or Mi 4 to MIUI v6 Developer ROM (based on Android 4.4.4) then you might be looking to root your MIUI 6 device. Well, that’s not required as MIUI developer ROMs are rooted by default! But the root permissions aren’t provided to apps by default. Though, one can grant root access to an app through the Permissions app but that’s pretty annoying in MIUI 6 as there are 5 pop-ups, each with a timer of 5 seconds. That means, you need to wait for 25 seconds before you can grant root permissions to an application. Annoying and time consuming, isn’t it?

A while back, the infamous Android developer Koush released the ‘CyanogenMod Screencast’ app for Android 4.4.1 devices running CyanogenMod 11 custom ROM. The Screencast app allows you to seamlessly capture a video recording of your Android phone screen and microphone. The record screen feature is really useful for developers to showcase their app through a video demonstration or in case you want to give a video walkthrough of the device interface. Though, Android 4.4 KitKat supports screen recording functionality but it is not available out of the box; requires installing Android SDK and then run several commands to do the needful. Those unaware, the OnePlus One smartphone running on CyanogenMod (CM11S) offers native screencast ability with the pre-installed Screencast app.
