I am not sure if this is an issue with a few custom roms or the phone. Randomly my phone locks up, and either just reboots after some time, or I have to hard reboot to get it to come back to life. It's not overheating, it happens even after factory reset/wipe/etc on a few different roms. It didn't do it on LineageOS for my phone, but I couldn't get the MIUI cam working, and when I installed this rom (evolutionx) the camera works great with all of the lenses (albeit less quality, but I also installed gcam and it works great so I use them appropriate one when needed).

Is anyone else experiencing this on the Redmi Note 8/8T (Specifically willow/8t). I know it has a small amount of ram, but it just sh**s the bed out of nowhere and I am unsure of how to troubleshoot it. I am an engineer (full stack/network/linux), but know very little about android rom engineering or troubleshooting (much to my chagrin). Any help would be rad. I really, really love this rom, but I just need the damn thing to stop locking up/rebooting. Lol

Hi, I have problem with geolocation. every time i lock the screen the gps locks. I use it mostly for working with apps, so it becomes a problem. Do you know how to fix?

Clean install on Redmi note 8T. Everything works fine, except for the phone app. With incoming and outgoing calls, it hangs for 3-5 seconds and when the screen is on, I can not accept the call, the button is not pressed. I am from Belarus. Can anyone help?

Redmi Note 8

Clean install: Format & wipe

After adopting SD and migrating data I'm having some problems. Tested with 2x 128GB cards and 1x 64GB cards, same problems every time. Also tried a fresh re-install with format & wipe, same problems.

When copying files to "/sdcard" (aka "/mnt/runtime/full/emulated", aka "/storage/emulated/0/") I keep getting corrupted directories; directories that I can't write to, I can't delete, I can't move/rename, I can't change permissions, I can't change owner/group.

Problem happens when copying via "adb push", "tar", and "MTP".

This is a major problem.

May be related: Settings → Storage → SD Card. This shows almost 100% of used space on the SD card allocated to "Apps", at the moment it's showing 12GB of "Apps" on the SD Card; tapping on "Apps" says "No apps".

This is making it impossible to load up the SD card with the files I need. I'll be trying a different ROM now. I hope this gets fixed.

Edit: Update:
Similar problems with crDroid. "adb push" was failing. MTP was working, but only at dial-up speeds. As of now I'm trying this, which seems to working ar reasonably fast speeds:
tar cf - . | adb -s xxxxxx shell -e 'none' -T 'cd /sdcard ; tar -xvf - '
That copies from a directory structure on the computer. It also seems to work between two androids:
adb -s zzzzzz shell -e 'none' -T 'cd /sdcard ; tar -cf - . ' | adb -s xxxxxx shell -e 'none' -T 'cd /sdcard ; tar -xvf - '

It's past bedtime, but I'll probably try it again with Evolution X.

Edit #2: Nope. Still having the same problems :(

Edit #3: Even unzipping a ZIP file on the phone is consistently causing corrupt directories that can't be removed :(

Edit #4: N/A

Edit #5: Right now I'm just trying to "adb push" a TitaniumBackup directory to the new phone, and it gets to about 70-80% and then dies: "adb: error: failed to copy 'TitaniumBackup/com.android.theme.font.xxxx-xxxxxx.apk.gz' to '/sdcard/test/com.android.theme.font.xxxx-xxxxxx.apk.gz': remote couldn't create file: Invalid argument". It keeps dying at slightly different points, but every time it dies it corrupts the directory that I'm copying into; I can't delete it, I can't move/rename it, I can't add anything to it, etc. "df" shows that space is being consumed, but there's no files. The sdcard just keeps getting corrupted.
rm -rfv test*                                                                                                                                                                  
rm: test: Directory not empty
rm: test2: Directory not empty

mv test xxx                                                                                                                                                                    
mv: bad 'test': No such file or directory

Change: 2020-09-03 20:50:58.918624257 +1200

This does nothing:
find . -inum 11108 -delete

Any ideas?
