Hi Know issue for some, you could try changing the Kernel:

Install it using recovery, OFOX/TWRP if you haven`t got recovery you could try Temporary recovery, check my post on page 1 post 20.

Read my post in the previous page:

Problem lies with the built-in kernel so you have to change it.

i just read 3-4 last pages of this rom all i see was issues. is it that bad or i missing something ? is it stable at all ? i need an stable A13 rom with some Options/customizations what you guys think.
I'd recommend waiting 2-3 days before trying this rom as the dev releases updates at the end of every month. The rom was pretty stable but the last update broke a lot of things for most people.

No I could not. I was told that i need to flash recommended firmware. I did but even that did not help. So i switched to miuivn. If that had worked (and battery backup), it would have been an amazing ROM.
It should work if you first flash the recommended firmware, and then flash the ROM. And you might also want to format the data partition after flashing the ROM.

    Sounds good, I will try it to play around a liittle bit.

    Quick Tip 1,
    Never back up "Magisk" with Databackup.apk or Migrate-GPE.apk,
    before you switch to another rom and install Magisk as a new install.

    When you restore the backup of your Apps and Data and it includes a "Magisk backup" it causes Magisk to throw a wobbly, as both the old and new versions clash with each other.

    Quick tip 2,
    I use SDMaid to hide the renamed "Magisk" from my banking apps, i always unfreeze Magisk when updating a rom and then re-freeze it when the update is complete.

    If this post helped, then please say thanks.

    Thanks for the quick reply, John.

    I do have the latest GLOBAL FW (as I am in Canada): 'fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHGlobal_V14.0.4.0.TKHMIXM...' but prior to flashing 7.9 , I didn't do a factory reset (like I did before installing 7.8 some weeks ago).

    That 7.8 backup/restore was painful and seemed to introduce issues. So after a couple of tries (and LOTS of swear words), I gave up and Clean flashed 7.8 again -- but this time NOT doing a restore via either NeoBackup or Migrate.

    But when 7.9 was released, I did a Dirty Flash (so I wouldn't have to spend a few hours re-logging in, setting permissions/notifications, etc. for all my apps after they were restored by Google upon my first boot). But the price for my laziness seems to be spontaneous reboots with no obvious cause(s).

    I might try using DataBackup.apk after I've Magisk'd the phone (like I did pre-7.8) in the hopes that THIS TIME, it will be as successful as your experiences/tips noted in your posts. I have been trying not to root my phone as I worry that one day a malicous app will do Bad Things(r) to me and my poor F3.

    {BTW, thanks so much for your tips/steps that you provide in this forum. I've been wanting to tell you that I find them VERY helpful and would encourage you to keep doing it! Even grizzled 'veterans' like me refer to them whenever a new public build is released by Aggelos.}

    Are you using the correct Firmware for your region, you could back up your important apps with DataBackup.apk (Needs Root) and factory reset Evo-X and see if that works,
    I am using the latest build, i have not faced any Re-boots,
    Hello. I'm contemplating moving from MIUI as the recent updates has been quite poor. And since I have to wipe soon anyway I've decided to try out Evo X.

    I've been reading all the posts and downloaded the relevant files. But when I try to update, it says my zip is corrupted. I've redownloaded it many times and even tried sideloading but it just doesn't work.

    Any pointers? @johnr64 I've read all your posts lol. Was getting ready to setup my phone despite this late in the hour...
    HI Adevem,
    Welcome to the Home of the Amazing Evo-X Rom,

    For me MIUI looked good but had limited functionality.

    I unlocked my Bootloader within weeks of buying my F3 and i will never return back to Stock Firmware.

    I brought the F3 because of the: ease of unlocking the bootloader, the Amazing DEV Support and Value for £££.

    My first question: is your bootloader UNLOCKED:unsure:,
    Second question: if so, have you got TWRP Recovery installed:unsure:,

    If yes to both, what version of Evo-X are you trying to install:unsure:.
    Im losing my mind now.

    I'm trying to install the latest release evolution_alioth-ota-tq2a.230505.002-05071614

    I have wiped everything but the zip won't install. I am trying to do a total clean flash from MIUI v12 but the zip I downloaded does not have the .bat file for fastboot installation and wipe.

    Am following your first post but I'm getting stuck at step 1. Please help!

    edit: gonna clean install MIUI on their v14, the only one I can find with the .bat file
    Your bootloader is unlocked that is a great start(y).
    Evo-X has to be installed using fastboot commands and a PC.

    I prefer to use my "Temporary Recovery" program and TWRP to install any Custom Rom, check out my previous post.

    I only really use my PC for backing up files for safe keeping or if i have Soft bircked my F3:(

    OTG is no longer Now working with Orangefox recovery.

    To overcome the OTG showing 0MB or .., remove the OTG adaptor,
    reboot into OF Recovery, re-connect your OTG adaptor and
    tap ☰ in the bottom right of the main screen to open the MENU,
    open Mount, tap USB-STORAGE (wait 5 seconds) the (USB-STORAGE background will turn black), shortly after the check box will enabled, many thanks to
    Rafsf for the Workaround.

    I would like to first say a big thank you to

    @DarkAngelGR (y)for this AMAZING rom,​

    I was using the Descendant rom previously but sadly the development has stopped and I was itching to try A13.

    I have been using your rom for the last 7 days and i have been amazed.

    Like most users I was searching for a fast, stable and refined rom with the latest security patches and no bugs, yours has all this and comes with the added bonus of OTA updates(y)(y),

    the EvolutionX rom has turned out to be perfect for me:love:.

    I have not found any bugs, but then i don`t use all the bells and whistles that this phone has to offer.

    After moving from the Descendant 12.1 rom and following your install instruction listed above my F3 would re-boot back into Descendant rom (Very Strange), was it due to using the wrong slot at re-boot??.

    I have had similar install issues before and reverting back to the A12 rom and starting from a clean install fixed my F3.

    Preinstall notes,

    The Bootloader needs to be unlocked and USB drivers installed.

    Rom installation

    1. Start with a clean install of the V12. Download and Unzip V12 rom and install via FASTBOOT.

    1a. To enter Fastboot mode, turn off your F3 and hold down the Volume down & power buttons together until you see Fastboot.

    1b. Using a PC, Run the .bat file: windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format.bat
    and complete the initial install.

    2. On the Miui 13 screen, disconnect and reconnect your F3 from the PC and choose file/folder transfer.

    3. Download the latest evolution_alioth-ota-rom build from here, once complete copy into the F3`s internal memory or a USB Memory stick.

    4. Download V14.0.3.0.TKHINXM and once again copy into the F3`s internal memory or a USB Memory stick.

    5. (Optional) If you require Root, download Magisk-v25.2.apk and again copy into the internal memory or a USB Memory stick.

    Safety net passes without intervention, if you don`t require Root.

    6. Reboot the F3 into Fastboot mode as above and using a PC,
    Download, unzip and run RUN_TWRP-Orange Fox FIXED.bat,

    from the menu, choose 2) Install OrangeFox Recovery.

    the original EvolutionX Recovery Mode is still intact to enable OTG updates.


    7. in Orangefox install all the above downloaded files from the internal memory or a USB Memory stick using a OTG Adaptor, once completed format data using the🗑️/Wipe Menu and select Format Data by typing YES, the F3 will re-boot automatically (JOB DONE, LET THE FUN BEGIN).

    8. i had issues with Santander and Tesco Pay+ banking apps detecting Magisk, i fixed this by Renaming Magisk and adding my apps to the deny list from within Magisk, I then used SD MAID to freeze "HIDE" the renamed Magisk from my banking apps.


    If you are planning to use Magisk/Root after the OTA update, then unfreeze magisk from within SD Maid before you update your F3,
    once the
    OTA has completed to re-apply root follow steps 5,6, and install via Temporary Orangefox then re-boot and re-freeze your renamed magisk.

    Shortened install instruction below

    1. Install Orangerfox Temporary via fastboot (PC)
    2. Install Evolution_alioth-ota-rom, either from Internal storage or OTG adaptor
    3. Install V13.0.9.0.SKHEUXM, either from Internal storage or OTG adaptor,
    4. Install Magisk v25.2, either from Internal storage or OTG adaptor, If ROOT is needed.
    5. if OTA updates are required then Format Data from within Orangefox and Reboot.
    5.a If you require Orangefox to be Permanent then from within OFRecovery choose install current version and then Format Data and Reboot.

    If POSSIBLE use a OTG Adaptor, as FORMAT DATA you will clear your internal memory when performing a clean install.

    This rom is now my daily driver and for anyone wanting to know how fast this rom is,

    my AnTuTu score using Evolution X ver: 7.2 220804.031 is 671225

    Other AnTuTu scores were,
    Descendant 12.1 708922
    Arrow O/S A12, 679090 V12-12, 661033

    My Poco F3 is the 8gb/256gb EU version,

    Thanks again DarkAngelGR(y) (y) (y) (y) for this awesome rom and Rafsf for the OTG fix,

    Phone refuses to wake up from sleep sometimes and the power button has to be pressed for a few seconds to force it to restart. This wasn't happening in the previous version...
