Requirements

Installation Guide


Firstly install CleanSlate configuration and CleanSlate companion apps on your phone (both found down below in Download section). (On play store version: with Android 12 you need to join the Beta program for the correct app versions.) Set them up initially.
- Non-rooted method: 0. download the non-rooted boot img

1. reboot to bootloader (adb reboot-bootloader)
2. temporary boot cleanslate_x.y.z_stock_20xx-xx-xx.img (fastboot boot cleanslate.......img)
3. if everything went fine, you can reboot to bootloader and flash the image: fastboot flash boot cleanslate.......img
4. reboot, enjoy
- Rooted method: 0. download the boot.img

1. install magisk
2. patch the provided boot image
3. use fastboot boot/flash boot to test and then fully flash it, then enjoy

- For SafetyNet, Adblocking, after flashing you might need to restart the phone after the first boot, otherwise it might not work.
- If using Companion App for notification / gesture etc features, there's a setting in the app to Switch off Proximity sensor while Screen is on. This will prevent the flickering, but Face down screen off feature won't work



Known bugs
- None, please tell
- please disable magisk modules before reporting issues, and please provide logs if possible

No, can't. Also there's no TWRP yet. You need to use magisk and a stock boot image that you patch with magisk. After that Franco kernel manager can install cleanslate zip of kernel

Once I have the device, I will start working on TWRP. Don't worry; as soon as it's done, it'll be posted here. Be patient.

Working on the usual cleanslate battery saver mode and some other smaller features.

The battery saver is to cut back on different levels on the three clusters of CPU frequencies, going further than the Asus battery saving advanced mode frequency maximums. This is to give some further possibility to cut back on heat and some battery usage, especially in CPU hogging apps like video chats and navigation software. Especially for summer, in the car situations where heat usually is more of a problem. So that's next to be expected

Hello
The main, if we want call issue, is the drain in 4g mode. As you can see in the attached screen, the battery starts do go down very fast during usage. During the night, the 4g standby works perfectly.
