Now let we flash the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version to Redmi 1S. That might see like an obviously good choice, but it is a crazy idea, right? However, I am delighted to tell you that you can implement this crazy idea.

We must say thanks to XDA senior member GuneetAtwal, he created a custom CyanogenMod 14.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat to make your idea real.

According to the original developer, the Rom is still in the early stages. In other words, it is not a stable release at this moment, such as Camera is not working. Of course, the developer will continual fix and improve it. So far there are many features that can be used, which include Call, SMS, GPS, Audio, Video Playback, Wi-Fi network, Bluetooth connection, and more.

Any way, if you’d like to try your hand on Android 7.0 Nougat for your Redmi 1S, there are some useful data, please read following content carefully.
