I have installed 1.9 and audio calls seem to work fine (only tested whatsapp). Also overall speed seems to be much better (I was on 1.5 before). Will report if I find any bugs.

Xiaomi Mi A3
The quick charging issue has still not been resolved in 1.9. When i updated via OTA from 1.7 to 1.9, my bluetooth became unusable as it was continuously switching on and off, even after system reboots, so i had to clean flash it again. There's one other issue that crops up sometimes with all the apps saying that the camera is being used even though it's not (Don't know when exactly it happens) and hence the flashlight becomes unusable.

Other than that, it seems to be working alright. Keep up the good work.

Guys, I am using project elixir rom on my mi a3, and so far its a terrific experience, with just one thing - the system ui crashes everytime i try to play music from any app (spotify, youtube music, etc) also, when using youtube vanced, if i close vanced and then resume playback from notification panel, system crashes again. Another problem i have seen is that whenever i click a link on youtube app or vanced app, when it opens webview, the system ui crashes again.

A restart or force restart solves the crash and i can use the device normally, but whenever i try to do the above said actions again, the ui crashes again and the crash runs on loop until i restart again.

I know you guys are working hard and it helps providing logs and screenshots, but in that state, i cant even take screenshots and regrettably, i do not know how to record logs on my phone.

If anyone can let me know how to fix the problem it would be great.

Also, if you need logs, then i can google how to do that and get back to you.

Thanks in advance. You guys are doing a great job!

Hello friends of the project.
Excellent rom, good functions, however, for a few days now, I cannot charge my Mi A3 cell phone, it indicates USB charging connected device and does not charge, with the original charger.
On some occasions I insert another fast charge charger and it recognizes it.
To solve it I have to restart the phone and insert the charger and sometimes it does not recognize the fast charge.
We appreciate any review of the bug that I reported.
Thank you very much for your excellent work.

I tried to install version 1.9 of Project Elixir.
But I am stuck in the first boot screen. I looked at the animated Project Elixir logo now for over an hour

I repeated the process. Version 1.9 now works fine. Maybe I just forgot to "factory reset" by "LineAge Recovery".

Banking App is working.
Until now everything seems to work fine.

After three days I'm very pleased with your rom. First custom on the Mi A3 for me and everything went smooth, installation and usage.
The only downside from a stock rom is the FOD doesn't work with screen off but it seem to be like that on all the other rom too. The GO cam is not the best but gcam bsg 8.1 work fine and photo is as good as stock cam.

Thanks a lot, hope you maintain it for long.

Please, if you could release a new update with the August security patch, and that functionalities, such as fast loading, be validated. We would really appreciate it.

    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
