Method 1: Using QuickShortcutMaker App

  • Tap on it
  • Find
  • Click on it and tap on Try
  • Wallah! Now you can select Performance Mode or Balanced Mode

Method 2: Using Security App

  • Open Security app
  • Tap on Battery
  • Battery profiles
  • Add profile (at the bottom)
  • Tap on CPU usage  and then select High performance
  • Now rename the Profile to High Performance or gaming or whatever

  • Now go to settings about phone -> tap five times on MIUI version to enable Developers Options
  • Go to Settings -> Additional Settings – Developer Options and then enable USB Debugging.
  • Connect your phone to PC and fire up CMD using Administrator Privilages.
  • now type adb devices and then you will see that adb will start a server and then your phone should show up
  • now type
am start -n
  • Now on the phone you will see a prompt for Balanced Mode or Performance Mode.
  • If you get error like root access not available or something like that then type
adb shell

before you type the command

  • I discovered this way by adb logcat. I observerd how Mi verification app calls for the Performace mode option and we invoke that using that command.
