Maybe if you had another ROM before and then installed stock you have stock in slot a and the other ROM in slot b, that's why I told you maybe to try to flaah stock in both slots. My guess is that the easiest way to do that is to flash the previous stock version and then take the OTA, that way you are sure you have stock in both slots.
I flashed stock rom with fastboot so i have stock rom on both slots

thank you for the feedback, and i've been constantly working on the FOD. Beta 4 should be way better in terms of speed and accuracy. Can confirm with users once, but did you do a clean flash?
Just installed the ROM from stock a few days ago. I noticed that the FOD works consistently better when placing the finger about 2mm above the center of the FOD icon on the screen. Can anyone confirm this?
Relocating the icon in future builds with a circle around it may increase accuracy at the minimum.

p.s I've attached a screenshot. Hope that helps.

i use fastboot update .zip command not adb update but it dosent work cause my device is not detected in fastboot mode, thats what i'm trying to say
I had the same issue. Turns out Windows took it's own sweet time to get the appropriate fastboot drivers for the device. Don't know why though. You may have to force Windows to check for the missing drivers.

There may be some truth to this. I'll keep testing but it also seems better now, several days after I started using it, probably it's just me figuring out the best finger position subconsciously.

Great rom, a very good daily driver imho, battery is amazing regardless of the slightly noticeable heat from the gps.
I have found a thing that tickles me though: I cannot install CA certificates.
I just found out in the office today. Android 11 (for PEAP authentication) removed the option to avoid validating certificates for enterprises' wifi (I think there's an XDA article about that).
Stock Android 11 kept this option available (probably a measure by Xiaomi, not an expert though, sorry).
In order to avoid this problem I tried to install CA certificates myself getting to Security->credentials->install a certificate->install CA certificates, and then after the HUGE disclaimer, UI stopped.
Honestly it's not a dealbreaker for me, but I just wanted to let you know ;)

EDIT: i found the article...https://www.xda-developers.com/android-11-break-enterprise-wifi-connection/

After install adb drivers again finally i installed this rom. But i have a problem. My MI A3 don't have amoled screen anymore because screen broke a few months ago and i replaced with a lcd screen. So after install this rom i can't type anything on screen. It's a bug or its from my phone? Stock rom works well. Is weird. Somebody have an idea? Thank you

    Flashing the latest firmware maybe solve it.
    If not upload the kind of touchscreen panel that you have, use an app like Device Info HW and if the author can and want could be merged in the kernel tree for next updates.
    Or if some other kernel that you tried before to supporting your device is compatible too with this ROM would be a way to-go.

      Only 16 GB of useable system storage, after flashing this ROM, why so?
      I don't have this problems. I think you have made a bad installation... Reflash stock. If your internal storage is 64 gb, try reflash pa. Probably you have flashed pa starting from a wrog stock rom. Most of strange bugs after a custom rom installation depends from wrong star firmware version. For pa you had to start from layest android 11 stock firmware

      We are very excited to announce the Beta of Paranoid Android Ruby, based on Android 11.

      On the first launch, you’ll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson, who teamed up with us again to create several beautiful pieces of artwork. Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose design stands for itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We also added further UI touches that we believe enhance the overall user experience. You can find all of the Paranoid Android wallpapers and many more in the Abstruct app, included in our builds.

      Our builds are based on the Code Aurora Forum Android base, which is optimized for Qualcomm platforms and has a higher degree of performance, battery life, and functionality compared to the Android Open Source Project platform. The Paranoid Android team and contributors are focusing on squashing existing bugs, and implementing and improving features, performance, and stability. We are dedicated to providing a user experience with the stability that you can expect from stock ROMs with best-in-class performance and features to help you get the most out of your device.

      Notice

      As we are growing on our list of supported devices in each release, we require of a stronger build environment so we can speed up the compilation process for releases. Based on the actual Quartz 4 list, we support over 30 devices, which takes between 2 and 3 days for all the builds to be completed without counting possible compilation issues or rebuild needs, based on our current specs.

      We kindly ask all of you that are in position to donate anything, to help and support us so we can provide better and faster build releases, as well as increase the download speed of our servers, all looking for your enjoyment.

      Device-specific issues

      Paranoid Android Ruby Beta 4 is out!


      This build is Production/User and is Enforcing.

      This vendor is based off CAF tag :- 'LA.UM.9.11.r1-03200-NICOBAR.0'', and has been updated completely to R. The usage of stock vendor/blobs is only for camera and not anything else.

      Device sided Changelog:-
      • Kernel optimisations.
      • Changes to frequency tables.
      • Fixed DT2W on AOD.
      • Updated brightness overlays.

      Now for this Beta update, you have to be on Stock 11/updated to stock 11.
      No support for stock 10 firmware from my side starting from this build.
      Also please don't try to install any kind of custom recovery. Also that, please don't try installing Old Alpha release after installing beta because that was based up on Stock 10 firmware.

      If you want magisk, please patch the boot image (inside pa fastboot zip).

      You can dirty flash, but if you face bugs, please clean flash and format data.


      All of my work is uploaded and open in github.com/AOSPA and github.com/ThankYouMario. Feel Free to use it the way you can.

      WARNING :- Anyone installing this rom coming from Stock 11 update, please don't. Stock Android 11 needs firmware update from my side which will be done in Beta for which you have to install Stock Android 11 from Mi Flash or fastboot and then switch to the upcoming beta build. I'll provide a zip that can be flashed from fastboot itself (i.e, fastboot update pa-xx.zip).

      Also, FYI :- Once you've installed Stock 11 in your phone, please don't try to downgrade it to Android 10 stock. It will brick your phone. Be Safe, be informative.

      Thanks :)

      Can you please tell me the steps to install this rom from stock 11.
      Install necessary device drivers and platform tools from Android SDK.
      Download the rom file (link in OP), which is in zip format. Put the rom file to the platform tools folder.
      Take any necessary backups from your device.
      Enablele USB debugging in Developer options in your phone.

      Reboot to fastboot mode by pressing volume down while rebooting the phone.
      Connect your phone with computer using a USB cable.
      Make sure the computer detects your device by opening a command prompt inside the platform tools folder and type 'fastboot devices' without quotations and press enter. Make sure your device shows up as random number.
      Afterwards, type 'fastboot flashing unlock' without quotations and press enter. Your phone should reboots and erase the data. You have now unlocked the bootloader.

      After briefly set-up the phone, enable USB debugging in Developer options again.
      Reboot to fastboot by pressing volume down button while rebooting.
      Make sure the computer detects your device by opening a command prompt inside the platform tools folder and type 'fastboot devices' without quotations and press enter. Make sure your device shows up as random number.
      Now type 'fastboot update ' without quotations, then drag the rom file from the platform tools folder to the command prompt. The directory of the rom file should be seen after the word 'update ' without quotations. After that, press enter and the phone should start the rom flashing process.

      Keep an eye on the command prompt. When you see it's now flashing/writing the vendor partition, prepare for pressing volume up button on your phone. Once it finishes, the phone restarts and quickly press and hold down the Volume up button until you are in Android recovery mode.

      From there, navigate to 'wipe data/factory reset' using the Volume keys. Press power key to select the option. Select yes using volume and power key afterwards. After it's done, select reboot from the menu using volume keys and press power key once you selected it.

      Profit!
