So, to the point, how good is the UNOFFICIAL Evox for Poco F3?

For those who don't know, there is a Russian build in a russian forum.

Everything is in russian, ofc ;)

I doubt it's very stable... Not even an XDA thread. Don't know if this phone will receive good support... Which is sad, cause mine arrives tomorrow morning. I had hoped for good custom ROM support, but that doesn't seem to be the case

There are a fair few devs working on the device. There are device trees so any custom ROM can be built and MIUI customised ROMs are also being released. On top of this there are two superb devs currently working on dynamic a/b partitions to make TWRP stable. This is difficult as there is a lot of guesswork involved as the phone was released with Android 11 and so the partition setup is quite unknown

Hmm, yeahhh, cos there's only around 15-20 ROMs, a couple of kernels and a couple of twrps, plus whatever else is in the pipeline... how many more do you want? lol

That's great news! Has xiaomi released the kernel sources completely?

how's the battery bakup at 120hz? Are magisk and accompanying mods installable?
Battery life is great, I can use the phone actively without noticing the battery depleting. System resources minimal if as long you don't use bloated apps. I have magisk installed with things like energized protection, viper4android and more working fine. Even apps like bluemail work on this ROM while on others I had no luck.

Are you using AOD or dt2w, or pocket detection?

    Finally, I moved to Evox from Arrow, I preinstalled xiaomi.eu 12.5.2.0 STABLE, then installed the july 8th version of Evox, and you can notice the changes inmediately in terms of battery. Previously in Arrow, I had a battery drain at night of 3-4%, and with Evox was at 0,3%!!! I have AOD, dt2w and even pocket detection to test how much battery it drains.
    The amount of wakelocks, sensor use and alarms are notably lees than Arrow.
    Don't misunderstand me, I liked Arrow, it is a very smooth ROM, but the autonomy is key to me, and in this first day, I guess Evox will be my daily driver.

    I'll be checking with BBS how is it going, and today was released another update, so I'm gonna test it too.

    Any question, I'll answer it ;)

    I just installed the version from the Gdrive above and so far its great. So many customizations and no hiccups yet.

    Will edit if anything changes.
