    Mi 5 CM13 (CyanogenMod 13) Marshmallow Custom ROM has been arrived through an Unofficial build. If you are flashing CyanogenMod for the first time then please be aware that this MAY VOID WARRANTY of your phone and may permanently damage your phone if not handled this guide properly. This Mi 5 CM13 CyanogenMod Marshmallow ROM is ONLY for Mi 5 version and hence make sure on which device you are flashing. We also have the Lineage OS 14.1 for Xiaomi Mi5 and CyanogenMod 14.1 for Xiaomi Mi5.

    I don’t know the working status of this build and hence you are requested to take a complete backup of the current ROM before you go to flash this ROM.

    Installing Custom ROM requires your phone to be UNLOCKED in some cases which may VOID WARRANTY. Sometimes if not handled carefully then it may permanently damage your phone and prevent from BOOT. Understand that you are the only person making changes to the device. In case of any damage or any kind of loss as a consequence of this installation, Neither the Developer nor We can be held responsible.

    Thanks for your great jobs, i have tested this ROM, it works well in my daily life, i want to generate the same ROM.

    genmini was supported by official CM-14, i follow the build instructions with CM-13 source code, unfortunately it does not work, can you post the build processing?
    where to fetch the whole source?
    maybe some guide links?

    thanks so much!
