  1. Bugs:
    1.Adding call not works
    2. There is some problem while accepting and rejecting calls.
    3. Double tap to wake doesn’t works.

    Must have additions:
    1. There should be more ways to use Ambient display like Motorola does with Moto display. This would be a great feature.
    2. Screen Recording

    Please add the 1st must have addition. Please!!!!!

    • there is no pin for twrp, its because of miui, miui encrypt your device and when you flash any custom rom it incrypt twrp
