Sorry, I am a noob I cannot direct you. I just unlocked bootloader some time ago, when I installed another rom and then I installed this room via recovery mode. ADB was not working for me so I use installation from SD card and it works too.

Have experienced 2 bugs on 1.5:
- Camera breaks after some time and doesn't work anymore without a reboot (always get a black screen, also mean face unlck doesn't work)
- Sometimes bluetooth audio playback stops randomly (need to go back to player, stop, wait a bit, hit play again)

Attention! Version 1.6 seems to be very unstable. It turns off my phone every x hours.

I tried dirty installation from version 1.5 and the phone was shut down twice withing a few hours. Then I tried clean installation and the phone froze after an hour or so, so I returned to 1.5.

Could you please look at the problem?

Same problem here, it got shutdown overnight after clean install. Besides that, ROM works great. Only feature I miss is controlling arrow keys using volume keys while editing text. Also gestures don't work when the screen off, like flashlight toggle with power button long press.

The worst is that if you flash 1.5 over the 1.6, it crews up the system completely. Guys, rather wait for a fixed version.

version 1.6 is not stable relative to the 1.5, I hope the problems will be solved by 1.7 thanks to the efforts of the developers.

    I've been used this rom for about one month
    and I explored this
    - the camera was great (google camera)
    - Battery was pretty good
    - Google Assistant don't work with 'Hey Google'
    - Carrier video calling was not supported on JIO
    - Having issues while video calling through other apps( Duo & WhatsApp )
    - I didn't notice any lag while scrolling and in normal usage
    - all apps were working fine
    No, I didn't enable it. I had it disabled. The bug is that it enabled something that was disabled. When I wrote about it, I didn't know it was just because it enabled some setting. I just wanted to help people. I am very sorry. You are a big man!
    so, is there any bug in 1.8 as of now?

    About changing slots is it anything to do? Is it the normal procedure finding the active slot and changing this e.t.c...
    Honestly I never understood the slot logic, some say we have to change some other things.
    The given procedure currently works fine for me,
    -boot into fastboot mode
    -connect phone with pc
    -flash lineageOS recovery img - fastboot flash boot <recovery.img>
    -boot into recovery - fastboot reboot and Press Vol+ at same time
    -do factory reset
    -navigate to apply update
    -use sdcard OR apply from adb (sideload rom - adb sideload <rom.zip>)

    I'm running miui 12.5 rom with android 10.
    Is it possible to install this rom and how?
    Can I do it through TWRP?
    Please if anyone can, can give detailed step by step tutorial?
    Thank you all :)
    Hi bro are u good? I hope so :)

    I was on 12.5 yesterday and i've installed v1.6 for test. I follow the steps of this video: miui to elixir follow with atention and everything will be fine. The rom is smooth and faster but have a few bugs. Yesterday the team released the version 1.7. Waiting for @H3M3L to post the new version. Amazing job! Thanks!!!

    It will be soon available, i've seen that on the discord
    But there is the 1.4 build in telegram group.
    Hi, loving the Rom. However there are a couple things that can be quite frustrating.

    The battery life is a bit poor compared to PixelPlus which is what I was using before elixir, I switched because PixelPlus support ended.

    Haptic feedback is almost none existent, might be settings but I don't think it is.

    At a glance is small in top left. Might be intentional I'm not sure.

    Fingerprint scanner is responsive which is good. But the screen stays at max brightness

    Double tap to wake doesn't work properly and always on displays nothing.

    Apart from that performance is actually quite good, which might account for battery drain but it you could get Ballance that would be great.

    I look forward to what might come of this Rom. And many thanks if you have read this
