Currently, the ROM does not support VoLTE. Also, the Goodix and SELinux fingerprint reader is set to permissive. The rest of the system seems to be working properly, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM Radio, GPS, LED, Camera and of course, RIL (Calls, SMS, Data).

The installation procedure always requires custom recovery on your Redmi Note 4, better if TWRP. You will need to download the ROM zip file and the GApps zip package and flash via TWRP.
