Xiaomi Mi A1 Mod Adds Fingerprint Wakeup After Reboot, Night Light, and More

The Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first smartphone from the company to ship with Android One, so it isn’t surprising that it’s received a lot of attention since its released. Android One devices sometimes don’t have the same functionality as standard Android phones. But thankfully, XDA Senior Member Rajeev created a Xiaomi Mi A1 mod that adds features such as fingerprint wakeup after reboot, which lets you wake the display with third-party lock screen apps, and auto brightness, which adjusts the display’s brightness level to ambient light sources.

Here’s the full list of changes:



  • Added Fingerprint Wakeup
  • Added voLTE Symbol Instead of HD
  • Added Invisible Power Button in Statusbar
  • Added Night Light
  • Added Auto Brightness
  • Added 4 Row Quick Tiles (v2)

If you’re raring to get started, head to the XDA Forums for a full list of installation instructions. Note that while the mod works with any Nougat 7.1.2 build on the Mi A1, it requires root and a custom recovery menu like TWRP.
