hello everyone, I just got on this wonderful custom rom but I installed 6.7 due to the lack of customization in A13, my doubt is the theme of Hz, I don't always have it in 72hz sometimes I change it to 60 but today i was in 72 and the screen started to flicker like it raised and lowered the brightness, I quickly changes it to 60hz, do you know if it is safe to have it at 72hz? or can i mess up the screen? is my biggest fear, Lot of thanks anyway
which one is the rom actually? i also wanted to install 6.7 the final version

I have strange behaviour of fast charge. I have several Charge adapter (in car, two macbook's charger in two rooms, xiaomi native charger ) and all wih fast charge. A week ago i was on miui and on all of this charger fast charge works well. Now i on Evo x 12l. Great rom. But fast charge stop working frequently. On all my charger it can work or can not. I don't understand what cause of this problem. Maybe Evo x has some settings for it? Can anyone ideas how to make fast charge more stable.

In additional i think it is not depends on temperature. How i see it can stop working when battery 25 degrees C.

I have a problem that anytime I boot into TWRP my files are encrypted. (At least I think so, filenames are a bunch of gibberish)

I searched the thread, but couldn't clearly find/understand what to do here.

I want to flash Magisk, but can't due all the files being wierd when I boot into TWRP .


What I did to solve my problem is use ADB Sideload to install Magisk.

Next thing you can do is installing the development version of TWRP which can read A12 encrypted partitions

You can also swap for unofficial OFox which support A12 & A13 encryption

After following instructions, using latest official twrp, flashing latest global fw and evo rom this is what i see after booting, phone actually finishes booting but displays this noise instead of image, anyone have any clues how to fix it?

Really appreciate your answers! However, I just needed to set up this phone to give to my mom. (using magisk and root for adaway)
I always give her my old phone, it will be a great upgrade after her galaxy S7. Hopefully I'll never have to boot into this phones recovery again.
Big thanks to joeyhuab for making and maintaining this great, clean and up to date rom.

    After around 20 test builds, I and other users can assure you better battery life on this new update. Deep sleep issues have been confirmed to be squashed so no need to do anything regarding that. A lot of device-side changes to further update/improve our current situation on Android 12.

    Bluetooth aptX Adaptive and aptX TWS(+) are now supported as we've switched to the QTI Bluetooth stack. Skia Vulkan is now the default for UI rendering. Several improvements to audio has also been done to improve calls and music streaming. A lot of sepolicy denials have been addressed to ensure less logging during system uptime.

    Extended swipe/advanced nav gestures have been removed in favor of a more stable gesture nav experience. It was causing some gesture issues, especially in apps during landscape mode. NFC icons for the status bar and QS tile have been updated (for Global and CN users) while esepowermanager and secure_element have been totally disabled for raphaelin users as they relate to NFC as well. Gboard spoof has been switched to redfin to avoid some force close issues while Play store will no longer be spoofed as app developers can apparently now block certain device fingerprints from downloading their apps.

    I've been having almost 2 weeks of sleepless nights, testing and making sure everything is stable and won't cause any more battery drains. There have been reports of improved active and idle drains in the tele group already after testing. I hope you guys enjoy and continue supporting Evo X by donating. Thanks!
