So since got my mi 10 lite 5g in global Rom, i have been in "Battle" with Xiaomi, to get the to fix the damn option that would allow the AOD to be turned on all the time, which is kind of the point of AOD.
After few back and forth emails, they sent me this:

I went on to APK mirror, and downloaded latest global package for MIUI themes, installed it, couldn't find anywhere anything about AOD styles, does anyone understand and can help me follow these steps? I am confused about settings menu, subsetting "screen" can't even find this to be honest. Can anyone help me with this, finding the right Themes app and how to configure this? Any help would be much appreciated.
