I started fresh but when I do update I just reboot into recovery and wipe cache and flash the ROM and twrp zip then reboot and once fully up I reboot recovery and flash root and kernel if wanted.
Can you tell me if you have the same effect as I do? When I put the theme setting to dark or auto I get white on white in the quick settings but it's fine on the light setting. I'm pretty sure it was working on the previous build. Not a big deal as I don't really see a difference lol. Just wanna know if it's maybe a bug or my install.

Yes, same thing for me as well but I use sub themes instead of built in ones and they work fine.

Ok cool. Btw, for anyone reading... I dirty flashed from the previous release to the 11.27 build and I'm still getting a fail cts (safety net) . It may not be the typical result but thought I'd drop it here for searches. I'll be doing a clean install on my next weekend off from work. Not blaming Rom but dirty flash unless proven otherwise.

I love this ROM but somehow the Google Calendar Schedule widget doesn't work.
I tried deleting the app data, app cache, re-installation (both ROM and app), and nothing seems to work.

Can you look into this. Thanks.

Sorry guys but there won't be any update from me for this ROM. It was getting more and more difficult to compile it for our taimen so I decided to stop it. It is not worth the effort. There are many other good ROMs out there. I recommend Pixel Dust.

No worries @fKm. I wouldn't mind taking a crack at this one. I just upgraded to the point where I can compile again. LMK if there's anything I should be aware of before I attempt it. Thanks for introducing us to it.

First off thanks for contributing to the scene! Also thank you for being a stand-up guy and announcing the EOL. Sadly we are often left hanging for long periods of time waiting for updates only to find out the dev bailed. Lol

Fair well...

    Clean flash is recommended. I don't know how the ROM is behaving with the Gapps now included. Maybe you have two versions of Dialer, Contacts etc if you do a dirty flash.
    Battery stats have been fixed and I don't have the flicker at Google Camera and Google Photos anymore. Have fun!

    JFYI: I did a new build with the latest updates from the Benzo Repo (fixes the battery usage data) and I switched to the Google Apps from Xanaxdroid, the original ones for Benzo Rom. So you will get the real Benzo experience. I also switched to the device tree and blobs from Dirty Unicorns. That seems to fix the distortions in Google Photos and the flickering at Google Camera. Only problem right now is that Now Playing stopped working but I try to fix it. When it's done I will push that new build ;)
