Hi, apparently the Activity Launcher doesn't work for MIUI 13/ Android 12. At the same time, the phone use PWM and has terrible flickering, has anyone found a working solution to the problem?
Thanks!
 
Hey nova launcher work perfect
Activity Launcher, despite the name, is not an Android launcher. It is a tool that allows you to launch and create shortcuts for hidden apps/services. It's popular because it allows modifying the "Anti-Flicker Mode" setting available in some ROMs but hidden from the Settings App.

Nova Launcher, as an Android launcher, cannot enable DC dimming. I don't think DC dimming is possible with this phone at the moment.

Thank you very much for the clarification.
It's a shame that there are no solutions to the screen flickering problem for this lovely phone. Interestingly, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11s uses the same display, but there the flicker is much less and appears below 54% brightness only, while here it is even at 100% brightness, which is terrible for the eyes...

Use a camera on another phone, set it to pro mode, and choose a shutter speed of about 1/500s. Now point the camera at your phone's display and start dimming it. You will see black bars running all over the display. They are not visible to the naked eye, but at the same time your brain indexes them and if you stare for a long time they will give you a headache and damage your eyes...
This is called PWM and is characteristic of AMOLED screens, which is why they put so much strain on the eyes, unlike IPS screens, where the image does not flicker at all, regardless of the brightness of the screen.

    You could probably flash the old firmware through adb, you could open a new thread and see if anyone has done it?
