I did actually. My steps were:

1. Flash A11 via Recovery.
2. Format data > Yes
3. Flash AEX
4. Boot

These were the steps I did for just Vanilla.install, no Gapps. And contrary to what TaimoorBoss said, that I should flash Gapps, that's wrong. Android Setup should not crash on a Vanilla build even with or without Gapps.

It's weird. I got frustrated and decided to go try crDroid again and that flashed without a problem. I'll stick with crDroid for now.

AEX has been solid stable though. I was running the last build since it released and I never considered switching ROM until the update messed up. The maintainer of AEX is very nice too. Hoping to go back again after a few more updates.
So u didn't format data after flashing the rom 🙄

So u didn't format data after flashing the rom 🙄

I also did that. I've tried many different approaches. If you see my post history in this thread a few pages back I encountered the same issue on an another update and I did many different approaches. In one of those I did format data after flashing the ROM and still getting the Android Setup closing.

Thanks for your flash instructions, I'll give that a try when I go back to this ROM.

question: (@OGHyperion)
our phone has more than one cameras, for different uses:

64 MP, f/1.9, (wide), 1/1.73", 0.8µm, PDAF
13 MP, f/2.2, 119˚ (ultrawide), 1.0µm
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)
2 MP, f/2.4, (depth)

how do we know that GCAM uses all of them , and not just the main one?

Switch to wide angle (it really does shoot wider pictures and videos)
Switch to 2x and shoot macro (this functions as well)
so at least 3 are working!

Hi !
I wonder where I can find the ROM for my Poco X3 NFC (Global) ??
The mentioned link from the start of the thread doesn't work for me ( -> Download Surya/Karna Unified Builds ).
May someone can tell me what I did wrong ?
Thanks in advance &
Can not tell you what is wrong, but just tried the website and it gives error 404.
Perhaps some upgrading problems?
I think mods will fix it soon.
Vanilla Users must clean flash
GApps users can dirty flash (provided they flash the R Fw first)

Does this sentence mean, that every time, we have to flash the firmware first before the updated GAPPS version?

    I guess there is nothing wrong in reading facts!

    -Why no "Incremental/Delta updates" Support?
    ->The updates we provide monthly are heavily changed and modified than the previous builds. New stuff is merged and added. So we don't provide incremental updates and recommend a clean flash.

    -How do I root this ROM?
    ->We recommend Magisk

    -Which Gapps are recommended?
    ->OpenGApps and NikGApps

    -Will this ROM relock the bootloader?

    -When Will Be the Next Update?
    ->No ETAs, please. ROM Will be updated whenever the new build is ready by your maintainer. We generally provide monthly updates with the latest security patches and new features.

    -Adaway is not working :(
    ->Download it from here Adaway

    -SElinux Linux mode changer app is not working nor Busy Box installer app is working.
    ->Everything is good with the sources. You should try other things first and then contact your maintainer.

    i tried installing this rom but keep getting updater failed error 1 on twrp so had revert back to Pixel Experience

    Ah lemme explain
    PEX Comes with fw in it whereas AEX does not. So... what you wanna do now is:-
    * flash MIUI A10 Fatboot ROM (Without Relocking obvsly)
    * Flash recovery..
    * format
    * flash miui a11 fw
    * and flash AEX ROM

    This is a one time process (Until and unless you flash PEX again)

    Hope this helps!
