Hello,
i experienced a Bluetooth-(Sound) Bug where after some Playback no sound was present, restarting fixes this issue temporialy. (Second Log)
I also experienced a freeze but they are somehow fewer as on OctaviOS (First Log)

Logs a given per Drive-Link which i sent you earlier.

Ps: Battery Drain is a little bit higher than usual but so far the Rom works pretty good ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

Best Regards

Having a bunch of issues trying to get Magisk installed and working. I've tried to follow their guide on github but not sure how to get ramdisk to show yes. Phone still showing as rooted in my company portal. Since this phone doesn't have ramdisk magisk has to be insatlled on the recovery partition. I did that and got into a fastboot loop and had to wipe my phone. Does anyone have some good instructions on a proper install of magisk?

I'm on OrangeFox, and flashing Spark, Nikgapps core, pixel setup wizard, and magisk v23 in that order. For some reason, if I try to install Magisk this way, my phone just keeps booting into recovery. Tried wiping cache after install as well.

So what I had to do was flash everything but magisk. Let the phone boot up, install magisk apk, reboot to recovery, and flash magisk v23. But then ramdisk shows no, safety net fails, and company portal still shows phone as rooted. Even after using magisk hide.

Anyone have a proper way to do this?

just flash as usual and boot into the rom first.
then once you have booted download magisk v23 apk and rename it to zip (ex. magisk.apk -> magisk.zip)
then reboot into recovery and flash the magisk.zip and you have root

I'll try it again but that's what I did this past install. Only difference was it was an older version. V21.1

Followed your steps to the letter, and my Outlook still recognized the device as rooted.

So after that I opened up the Magisk app and it asked me to install the latest version. Saying I was on 1.0 and that it wanted to install v23. Installed to see if that made a difference but no luck. Tried using Magisk hide but still no luck.


I've attached what it looks like in Magisk and RootSU - Notice ramdisk is still showing no

Magisk hide died recently due to Google so CTS may fail for some users on certain roms

Edited post.


I was able finally to boot and and install.

Big fan of this rom as of now, although not completely functional, it is good to have the xiaomi camera again, is there a way to make it 100% functional again?

Fingerprint works absolutely amazing.

The things that might need a bit more polishing would be

1 battery life
2 it still freezes, 2 freezes on one day.


Looking forward for the next update

Absolute best rom for having great camera and tons of great features. Only thing that stopped this from being the winner for me was call recording not working. Not just the button included in the call pane, but installing skvalex / etc call recorders all did not work.

Otherwise, looking forwards to anx camera eventually hopefully getting ported to Arrow OS. Arrow OS is a close second, only missing a great camera (and a few extra features Spark has, but can live without).

    Huge thank you to @alibei @Chemuski1 and @Hlcpereira for their effort and kindness

    Seems promising, right now I'm on the latest lineage build but this build suffers from freezes 2 or 3 per day that force me to hard reset and also finger print detection is not good.

    How is this rom in regards to that?
    Freezes fixed thanks to alibei's help

    Fingerprint works bad(
    sometimes little lagging lock screen after unlock .
    that's all for now.
    Change to white color

    Excellent ROM. Smooth and with a good amount of customization to make it personal. Happy you guys have been able to fix the freezing it was the only thing keeping me away from custom ROM. It's so much smoother and faster than stock.

    Kudos!
