everything other than finger print sensor is working perfect. even face unlock is bang on. But finger print worked during setup. After that it fails to sense any finger. I suppose, dirty flashing the rom should fix that issue. lets see.

I have just tested the Fluid ROM and it's great! Thx for your effort.
Anyway I miss some important customizations (for me... of course..) like the cursor control with the volume keys, and the option to atke a quick screenshot with vol- and pwr buttons...
But it looks great...
I'm sorry to say but due to some life issues Fluid is dropped for 8 series

    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Read the entire OP! Be respectful to each other and don't ask for ETAs, it's considered as being rude!


    Fluid is an aftermarket Android custom ROM distribution based on AOSP, focused on bringing a better UI/UX to Android with a fluid experience coupled with themes and customisations.


    Fluid doesn't aim at providing all the customisation available on the planet. We are focused on a cleaner, more Material design approach, with a few twists [NOPARSE];)[/NOPARSE] that assured, we do have a dedicated theme engine with cool stuff getting added every new update. So sit back and enjoy Fluid on your device!

    To root this, do you take the boot.img and patch it? then install in fastbootd?
    Yes that method works fine. Quite a nice smooth rom, fingerprint and face unlock is spot on.
    MAY update released !
    Completely off topic, but im on Magisk Canary and pass Safetynet. I hide magisk , but for whatever reason, RSA ID keeps detecting root on this OS (didnt on the previous OS). Should I reinstall this OS and try again? besides that, this is great and nice battery life, so I dont want to revert back again.
    Try Hiding Magisk App
    The download link only shows 2021/04/20. Is that the latest? I'm asking cuz the thread title reads 2021/04/21.
    Yes 20/4/21 is latest build for now
    is there an option to reduce the ambient display brightness as the ambient display is consuming more battery than usual?
    Yes that method works fine. Quite a nice smooth rom, fingerprint and face unlock is spot on.
    Fingerprint scanner is one thing that's not working well on most ROMs I've tried. I'll give this one a shot then. Thanks.
