How to Enable Face Unlock on the Xiaomi Redmi 4X

If you’re running version 9.2.5.0 of the MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM on the Xiaomi Redmi 4X, then you have likely noticed that it doesn’t have the Face Unlock feature available.


This is a feature we recently saw announced with the launch of the Redmi Note 5 Pro (and many other Android devices as of late).


Here is the procedure-


1. Download the zip file (https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=746010030569956831)
2. Flash it using TWRP Recovery.
No need to clear any cache
3. Reboot.

FAQs-
1-Will it work on other devices?
I do not know for sure, but for similar configurations it might work, you are free to try it on your device and post it below how it works.
2-Does it work on Developer Rom?
It does.
3- Will it be ported for other XYZ device?
We'll see.

Tested on Redmi 4/4x running on MIUI 9 Global Stable (9.2.5.0)

thanks to XDA Junior Member shubhandu (and Exetron on 4pda.ru) we are now able to enable this face unlock feature on the Redmi 4X thanks to a flashable ZIP file in TWRP.

So far, it has been tested and shown to be working on the Redmi 4/4X running this version of MIUI 9 and shubhandu has ported it to the Redmi Note 4 as well.
