If anyone interesting,

I recently changed my old official battery since I had to charge my device multiple times a day with Nohon from AliExpress, which I bought few months ago.
The results are impressive. SOT is around 11-12h if you drain the whole battery to 0. Check some screenshots here.

Very happy, like a new device :) I definitely recommend you to check it out if you are looking for new battery.

Good to hear. I ordered this Nohan battery about a week ago by a recommendation on Telegram. Will have to wait maybe 7 more weeks but i have heard very good reviews from it.

Hehe nice ๐Ÿ‘

Yeah it took a while for me too, around ~2 months but worth it.
I got it months ago before summer but I decided to install it now since I was charging my device multiple times and I couldn't anymore.

I can't be more happy from the results, I will buy again for sure in 2 years. Depends how long this one will last. Worth it.

I have a link with a video guide in battery section "how to change the battery" if you want to follow when the time comes. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Did you tried with TWRP 3.7 SE A12? Also try to format with recovery based on A9 not A12 and check. If you still have issue try to flash persist.

Mind explaining why Rockstar Kernel was given a medal. It won't even boot on any of the roms I use, and the developer of that kernel doesn't seem to care.

Actually, I will remove it when I sit down on my pc.
The decision has already taken before you post.

Edit: done.

๐Ÿค–Retrial-NikGApps A13๐Ÿ“ฒ
I've made my own NikGApps package for A13 since I didn't liked the premade packages.
My package replace the basic AOSP/LOS apps with Google one, while keep it debloated.

Basically it convert vanilla ROM build into GApps build without extra bloatware.

๐Ÿ—’๏ธNotes:
  • After Clean Install the ROM+GApps, before you boot to ROM > Reboot to recovery again > Format data once again. (Needed due of issue with NikGApps). OTA worked fine.
  • Optional Install Android System WebView from PlayStore, if it's not installed.
  • I may consider to add Chrome in next update.

Okay, i don't have any problem to reply here

actually it is a long story i don't think you would not like to hear it from the beginning
if you are already in CRdroid or NGK telegram group then you already know bcs I'm actively posting there from few days regarding my issue

Currently the issue is my phone is going into bootloop when i unplug the charger (the initial issue was error in Google play service)

Now the issue changed to save my Internal storage data. After trying several method and changing ROMs it didn't worked lastly "pierre" Suggested me to go back to Stock miui (to check whether it is a battery issue or with ROM or kernel). so i flashed my device to Stock firmware

But i thought if i will choose to flash it without erasing user data in mi flash tool my bootloader would be unlock and also my twrp recovery. so i did not back up my data.

Now in MIUI it is showing as Encryption error and to factory reset the data
i did not erased yet, trying to find some solution to recover it so i approached you lastly
I tried to flash twrp in fastboot but unfortunately the bootloader is locked so can't.

please help me to recover my data brother. Without my data I'm dead. please give me any solution.

Hi,

I am on telegram but I don't pay much attention to groups, since a lot of guys (not all) there are clueless and smartasses and a lot of groups have immature admins, generally f1 community is toxic, so yeah I haven't seen ur issue there ๐Ÿ˜‹

The bootloop when you unplug the charger is probably -90%- your battery. You need to replace it. I suggest you Nohon battery.

About ur latest issue with MIUI, I don't think there is much you can do if your bootloader is locked, you need to perform format data to fix the encryption issue to enter the ROM. If you connect your phone to PC it doesn't show (at PC) the Internal Storage right?

-You should always backup your data before doing that stuff- ๐Ÿ˜•

Yes, that is so true. in telegram groups everyone acts like a developer there ๐Ÿ˜‚

About the bootloop issue after formatting data. I see inside sdcard>MIUI>debug_log>powerinfo>result_reason file it says "Abnormal kernel reboot records"
so what that could mean? Is it for some hardware or any software or android architecture malfunction? IDK

If you have any idea please let me know
and my phones battery % also don't fluctuate much its remains to 100% as when i unplug the cable and use it it crashes into bootloop

Are you 100% sure that it could be battery dead issue? but idk how it could be dead suddenly when it was just working fine giving me atleast 3-4 hours of SOT.

My bootloader is unlocked I can see in developer option as i did not choose to lock it while flashing.

Hi @dev.muk ,

There is a high possibility that the bootloop is due to your battery problem.

I faced similar issue in 2021. My device sometimes randomly restart/bootloop when I'm not charging. My device temperature was normal at that time, even the battery was almost on full charge. Based on battery app, it was reported as healthy battery. After I plugged in my charger, the restart/bootloop issue stopped.

I bought a new battery afterward and replace it, and the issue solved. I did not experience any restart/bootloop up until now.

Your battery may look healthy, but probably the power draw is not stable (bad battery). Hence, the bootloop.

    You've mentioned Clean flash is mandatory, I'm on the latest build of the ROM and get ASI and settings crashes.
    Do I need to wipe everything and install the same ROM again and flash these gapps?
    yes clean install needed as Nikhil told me.

    Yep can confirm, clean flashing and using the gapps you mentioned above solves all the issues with ASI and Settings Services, Thanks!

    You can check my Guides for installation.
    Note: I've created an award system for people which are not familiar with custom ROMs, to help them choose a ROM which is stable for daily use, gets frequently updates with security patches every month and has active development, so they don't mess with ROMs which appearing and then dissapearing (and we have a lot of them).
    ROMs under awarded ROMs are not order by rating and just have random order.
    If you are knowledge, you can ignore my awards and choose any ROM you like.
    My standards for giving award to a ROM are:

    • Open Source โœ…
    • Stable enough for daily use โœ…
    • SELinux Enforcing โœ…
    • Safetynet pass by default โœ…

    Note: be sure you have selected Platform: ARM64 and the proper Android version of the ROM you are going to flash. If the ROM you want to flash include GApps, no need to download and flash any GApps at all.
    Most of the GApps have also a config. file which can be used to to configure your installation the way you like. You can skip any Package that you don't want to be part of your installation. For more infos about that, read the instructions of the GApps you chose or search in Google.

    Most people I know (including myself) who used my Guides and steps, did that with success many times.

However I am here to help if something goes wrong, just ask in the thread.


    AMD RYZEN/INTEL FASTBOOT FIX ๐Ÿ’ป

    Some AMD Ryzen or Intel Systems may have problems to recognize your device in fastboot. Try the following ways:
    1. Install Fastboot Drivers (Extract the folder for windows 10) at Device Manager while your device is connected in Fastboot mode.
    2. Download this
    .bat file (unzip it) or manually create a .bat file with these lines below, and run it as an administrator, then reboot:
    Code:
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\18D1D00D0100" /v "osvc" /t REG_BINARY /d "0000" /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\18D1D00D0100" /v "SkipContainerIdQuery" /t REG_BINARY /d "01000000" /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\usbflags\18D1D00D0100" /v "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery" /t REG_BINARY /d "01000000" /f
    3. Enable USB Debugging at device (Settings > Additional settings > Developer options > USB Debugging) and give authorization after connecting it to PC.
    4. Use USB Hub.
    5. Use USB Type-A 2.0.
    6. Install AMD Ryzen Chipset Drivers or
    Intel Chipset Drivers.
    Check the steps an another user did to make it work
    here.
    If this doesn't help, unfortunately you have to use Intel System which is more likely to work.


    UNLOCK BOOTLOADER ๐Ÿ”“

    Note: Some AMD Ryzen Systems may have problems to recognize your device in fastboot. [Read the AMD Fastboot Fix Guide above]
    Please keep in mind by Unlocking Bootloader the device will reset and all your data will be lost. Make a backup of your data first to PC or to USB.
    1. Create a Mi account on Xiaomiโ€™s website.
    2. Add a phone number to your Mi account.
    3. Insert a SIM into your phone (If you haven't added already). [Do not insert 2 SIM, only 1 until the Bootloader is unlocked. If you have 2 SIM into your phone, remove 1 and reboot.]
    4. Enable developer options in Settings > About Phone by repeatedly tapping (7 times) on MIUI Version.
    5. Link the device to your Mi account in Settings > Additional settings > Developer options > Mi Unlock status. Also enable USB Debugging.
    6. Download the Mi Unlock app (Windows is required to run the app).
    7. Run the Mi Unlock app and follow the instructions provided by the app.
    8. Reboot your device into Fastboot mode. For that simply turn off your device, press the Power Button + Volume Down (โ€“) button at the same time. Then connect the device to the Windows PC/laptop via a micro USB cable.
    9. After device and Mi account are successfully verified, the Bootloader should be Unlocked and your device will restart by itself.


    INSTALL CUSTOM RECOVERY ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ

    • Fastboot Method (No Custom Recovery currently installed)
      Note: Some AMD Ryzen Systems may have problems to recognize your device in fastboot. [Read the AMD Fastboot Fix Guide above]
      1. Make sure your Bootloader is Unlocked.
      2. Enable developer options in Settings > About Phone by repeatedly tapping (7 times) on MIUI Version.
      3. Enable USB Debugging in Settings > Additional settings > Developer options > USB Debugging.
      4. Download a custom recovery of your choice and copy the .img to your Internal Storage or to SDCard.
      [You can find a recovery of your choice in my Collection]
      5. Download the portable Minimal ADB and Fastboot and run cmd.exe
      6. Reboot to Fastboot mode by pressing Power Button + Volume Down (โ€“) and keep holding both buttons until the word โ€œFASTBOOTโ€ appears on the screen, then release.
      7. Once the device is in Fastboot mode, connect your device to PC and verify you can find it by typying in cmd: fastboot devices.
      8. Boot into Recovery by typing in cmd: fastboot boot <recovery_filename>.img (The file may not be named identically to what stands in this command, so adjust accordingly and write the full path of it, check the example below).
      This command will not flash permantly the recovery, it will just temporary boot into it and afterwards you will flash permantly the twrp.img you copied into your Internal Storage or SDcard in recovery partition.
      For example:
      Code:
      fastboot boot C:\Users\Retrial\Desktop\twrp-beryllium-v3.7.0-A12-V2.img
      9. Now into TWRP, press Install > Install Image > Locate & Select the twrp.img you previously downloaded and copied from PC into your Internal Storage or to your SDcard > Choose Recovery and Flash!
      10. Go back into Home page of TWRP and press Reboot to Recovery or manually by holding Power Button + Volume Up (+) until you boot to Recovery.
      11. Done! You now have a new Custom Recovery installed.

    Steps with external SDCard:
    • go to Advanced > File Manager > External_SD and delete all folders in ur ext sd card (For example you should delete: Android, .android_secure, LOST.DIR, DCIM, etc) except your personal files/folders and the folder with your custom ROM/Gapps/Magisk/DFE or Encryption you want to flash.
      Each app on your phone with the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission may create files or folders in ur sdcard. Most of these folders have once been created by one of these apps and many of them may be deleted with a few exceptions (e.g. Android, .data, .android_secure, these contain important system or app data like a game's downloaded content):
      .android_secure: apps installed and then moved to sdcard
      Android: app data/cache
      data: app data
      .estrongs: ES file manager
      LOST.DIR: sort of trash folder (collects recovered files after phone crashes)
      DCIM: phone gallery's photos and previews
      OTA-update: Over The Air update service
      ppy_cross: an unknown third-party app's data.

      So I recommend to delete them so you can put your phone/sdcard in a clean state and is guaranteed to be able to re-create these folders.

    • FIX (Read Carefully)

    MAGISK ROOT ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ

    The easiest way to root your device is via Magisk, it should work in all ROMs, Stock and Customs.
    Install
    Magisk:

    1. Install latest TWRP Recovery. [Read the Install Custom Recovery Guide above]
    2. Download the Magisk [You can find it in my Collection]
    3. Reboot to TWRP Recovery by pressing Power Button + Volume Up (+) and flash it.
    4. Reboot and check whether the Magisk app is installed. If it isnโ€™t installed automatically, manually install the APK. [You can find it in my Collection]
    Note#1: From Official TWRP Recovery 3.5.1 and onwards (and other recoveries based on that), Magisk.apk can be flashed as apk without the need of rename it to .zip. So you can simply flash the Magisk.apk in TWRP.
    Manually Creation of Flashable Zip:
    Download the latest Magisk APK and rename the Magisk.apk โ†’ Magisk.zip.
    Note#2: If your bank apps detect root, follow this Guide.

    Uninstall Magisk:
    • Flash the Uninstall.zip in TWRP Recovery and reboot. [You can find it my Collection]
      If Magisk App isnโ€™t uninstalled automatically, manually uninstall the app.
      Manually creation of Flashable Uninstall Zip:
      Download the latest Magisk APK and rename the Magisk.apk โ†’ uninstall.zip


    • Uninstall Magisk directly through the Magisk app. Simply press the Uninstall button.
    Note: If your apps detect root, follow this Guide (or this) to pass SafetyNet and have certified Play Store. [YouTube Video Guide]

    DISABLE FORCE ENCRYPTION (DFE) & ENCRYPTION ๐Ÿ‘€

    [You can find it in my Collection]
    • Disable Force Encryption
    Disable Force Encryption (a.k.a DFE) is flashed during installation of a custom ROM to avoid the system encrypting /data partition when the devices boot for the first time.
    Some ROMs are not encrypted by default and so is not necessary to flash DFE. However if your ROM comes with encryption by default you can always flash DFE after clean installation of ROM and always after every update or flash or you can use any custom recovery like OrangeFox, Pitchblack, Skyhawk Recovery Project which can automatic flash DFE after every flash.
    I don't recommended to use DFE if you don't switch ROMs frequently and you are casual user. Beside the fact that if you lose your device your data are not protected, many people get in confusion while doing OTA or manually updates, which if the ROM is encrypted by default and flashed DFE and in next update you forget to flash DFE you will lock out from your data and you wil get into bootloop (use custom recoveries mentioned above to avoid that).
    • Encryption
    Encrypted ROMs are recommended if you are stable and casual user of a ROM. Encryption have the benefit to protect your data, in case you lose your device for example.
    Always use the latest TWRP Recovery so you can be able to decrypt the data by filling the same lock screen password you have set in ROM.
    Some ROMs are not encrypted by default but devs provide an Encryption.zip (script) which can encrypt the ROM. Same as DFE you need to flash it after clean installation of ROM and always after every update to stay encrypted and not get into bootloop. Unfortunatly there is not any custom recovery automatic doing that like with DFE, so you must be careful, avoid doing OTA updates and flash it every time you manually update a ROM.

    HOW TO TAKE LOGS ๐Ÿ“

    BATTERY TIPS ๐Ÿ”‹

    Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 Battery Model: BM4E

    Method 1
    Steps:
    1. Discharge your phone fully until it turns itself off.
    2. Turn it on again and let it turn itself off.
    3. Plug your phone into a charger and, without turning it on, let it charge until the on-screen or LED indicator says 100 percent.
    4. Turn your phone on. It's likely that the battery indicator won't say 100 percent, so plug the charger back in (leave your phone on) and continue charging until it says 100 percent on-screen as well.
    5. Unplug your phone and restart it. If it doesn't say 100 percent, plug the charger back in until it says 100 percent on screen.
    6. Repeat this cycle until it says 100 percent (or as close as you think it's going to get) when you start it up without it being plugged in.


    Method 2
    Notes: It won't dramatically extend battery life, but it will give your old battery at least 30 minutes additional run time.
    Steps:
    1. Get "
    GSam or Ampere" from the Google Play Store.
    2. Launch the app and fully charge your phone. (Important: Only proceed with the calibration when the word "Full" appears in GSam or Ampere.)
    3. While your phone is still connected to the cable reboot your phone to recovery mode, open file manager and navigate to "/data/system" and delete "batterystats.bin," "batterystats-checkin.bin," and "batterystats-daily.xml."
    4. Reboot your phone (while it is still plugged in) and charge it until it reads "full" on GSam or Ampere.
    5. Unplug the cable and use your phone normally until it shuts down (0 percent )
    6. Charge your phone to 100% while it is turned off.
    7. Boot into os and plug in your phone and charge it until it says "full" on the GSam or Ampere.
    8. Unplug and have fun!


    • Battery Capacity Health

    Notes:
    1)
    Before checking the battery health, charge the device to 100%.
    2) Check charge counter values and consider first 4 digits from left as your battery capacity in mAh. And check charge counter. (Charge counter/level)*100 is the battery capacity.


    To find battery capacity in Windows:
    • Enable Developer options in your device.
    • Enable USB Debugging in your device.
    • Conect your device to PC and give permissions.
    • Open Minimal ADB (run cmd.exe) or Platform tools.
    • Type "adb shell dumpsys battery" command in Minimal ADB or Platform tools.

    To find battery capacity in Android (Terminal) - Root needed:
    • Download an android terminal app like Termux,
    • Open terminal and type: cat/sys/class/power_supply/battery/charge_full

    • Overheating

    Following reasons will lead to device heating issue:
    • During the initial setup after purchase or when restoring data.
    • Downloading large files.
    • Using apps that require more power or using apps for extended periods such as:
    • Playing high-quality games for long time.
    • Recording videos for extended periods.
    • Streaming videos while using the maximum brightness setting.
    • Using the Screen Mirroring / Smart View feature (connecting mobile to a TV).
    • While multitasking or when running many apps in the background i.e:
    • Using Multi window.
    • Updating or installing apps while recording videos.
    • Downloading large files during a video call.
    • Recording videos while using a navigation app.
    • Large amount of data for syncing with the cloud, email, or other accounts.
    • Exposing device under sunlight when temperature is high around you.
    • Extensive usage of mobile hotspot and tethering feature.
    • Using device in areas with weak signals or no reception or in roaming network.
    • Charging the battery with a damaged / unapproved USB cable.
    • Device's multipurpose jack is damaged or exposed to foreign materials, such as liquid, dust, metal powder, and pencil lead.
    Solution:
    Turn off Wi-fi, GPS , bluetooth and other connectivity options when not in use by dragging the notification panel.
    Decrease screen brightness.
    Close background running applications.
    Too many applications installed in device may result in device heating since their corresponding process will keep on running in background. It is advised to uninstall un-necessary apps if not using them.
    Avoid using apps like GPS, data dependent apps or graphic intensive games for longer duration since they require more energy to function, causing device to heat.
    It is advised not to use device while charging as it may cause the device to over heat.


    • General:

    DO:
    • Use manual brightness or dim the screen.
    • Turn off notifications for apps you don't use. Better still, delete/disable the apps entirely if you don't need them.
    • Enable battery or power saving mode when you want to extend your battery life.
    • Use the power adapter that came with your phone. Other chargers can charge slowly/faster but they can also damage your phone or battery.
    • Turn off bluetooth, location tracking, and Wi-Fi (unless you are actively using it)
    • Turn off print services from bluetooth connection preferences.
    • Avoid extremes of heat and cold. If your phone gets very hot or cold it can strain the battery and shorten it's lifespan.
    DON'T:
    • Have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi turned on constantly.
    • Leave apps running in the background. Instead restrict background usage off apps that you don't need running.
    • Push email means your device is always listening for new email which drains alot of battery.
    • Drain your phone battery all the way to 0% or charging it all the way to 100%. Keep it between 20% - 90% for longer battery lifespan.
    • The more advanced the graphics and animations are (games, videos, photos, animations), the harder the processor and graphics chip in your smartphone have to work. More activity means more battery use.

    • ShutUP10++ , Privacy.Sexy: Disable major tracking features of Windows.
    General:
    • Always prefer Open Source or well popular Programs, Apps, ROMs, Kernels & Stuff.
      Open Source doesn't mean it's 100% safe but it's unlikely to have something suspicious, since you and other users can check the code in GitHub or in any other code hosting platform the "stuff" is hosted. You can also find and use FOSS apps at
      F-Droid or at Droid-ify (Recommended).

    • Prefer ROMs & Kernels with SELinux Enforcing. You can find informations here.

    • Always download and install Apps, Programs, ROMs & Stuff from official sources and do not use redirection links from different sites. Google is your friend to find the official source of the stuff you want.

    • Always check the permissions an app requires, before download and install it to your device. If an app ask for permissions which has nothing to do with the app functionality then it's should be reconsider or ask the developer why these permissions needed.
      You can also check if the app includes trackers and ads with ฮตxodus.


    • If you want to avoid Google and Play Store (De-Google), you can choose a ROM without GApps preinstalled like LineageOS and use Droid-ify client which is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform. The client makes it easy to browse, install, and keep track of updates on your device. Note that not all apps from Play Store will be available in Droid-ify or F-Droid. Only Open Source projects. You can find alternatives though.
      Alternative you can use
      LineageOS for microG or any ROM which support signature spoofing and can support microG and use Aurora Store.

    • For Windows use the default Windows Defender & Malwarebytes to scan your files whenever you want (Prefered before open or install them). Also use the addon/extension uBlock Origin in your Browser. These should be enough for normal users. You can also use the tool ShutUP10++ or Privacy.Sexy to disable major tracking features of Windows.
      For Android Do not use any antivirus - antimalware since it's useless, just check what apps and from where you installing.


    • Always verify the source of addons/extensions in your browser. Avoid installing random and unpopular addons/extensions. Keep it minimal and clean, so browser can be fast and safe, no need bunch of extensions.

    • If you are using VPN, always check the terms and rules of the provider. Avoid random VPN Services.
      Recommended VPN Services.
      Using a VPN will not keep your browsing habits anonymous, nor will it add additional security to non-secure (HTTP) traffic.


    • Recommended is to encrypt your data/files always before uploading them to cloud with tools like Cryptomator.

    • Always use unique and strong passwords for each of your accounts.
      Use awarded open source Password Managers like KeePass or KeePassXC for Desktop and KeePassDX for Android to manage your passwords and have them with you safe, encrypted and secure. Must be noted you can use the same database file between these programs.


    • Always enable 2 Step Authentication wherever is available for your accounts.
      You can use apps like Aegis Authenticator.


    • Do not open or click on links attached in unknown emails or SMS you may get. Always check the address of the email or the number of SMS and verify it's legit from the official source.

    • Create and use "burned" email for accounts/sites you have concerns but you definitely want to try them. Do not use your personal or business email. You can also create and use email aliases of your email with SimpleLogin which is open source and awesome service.

    Some Notes:๐Ÿ—’๏ธ
    • There is some misinformation and abusive against @REIGNZ3 in some Telegram groups. I don't want to move these stuff here but let me explain few things to make it clear to you:
      There are reports from some people who don't have knowledge blaming REIGNZ for sabotaging other custom Kernels specifically NGK and claiming that he intentionally make it to not work in his ROMs and also ignoring reports for his ROMs if custom Kernel or mod is used.
      * Well the second part is true, for your information, none proper developer will take a look on reports of his ROM if you are using custom Kernel or Magisk modules, which may be the reason and the cause of these bugs. Simply if you think ur bug found it's not Kernel related then just go back to Stock kernel of the ROM reproduce the bug and report it then go back to ur kernel choice. Same with modules. Simple right? This will save the time of the developer and actual urs instead of complaining.
      * Now, about NGK Kernel not working on REIGNZ ROMs, that's not exactly true. NGK working fine at the most part. You need to understand that NGK shipping powerhint for libperf and REIGNZ using using qti powerhal. You can't blame someone because doesn't use what a custom kernel use in his OWN work. I will reverse it, and I will ask you why don't u ask @Pierre2324 to use what Reignz use? Well, this is not how the things works. If you don't like the ROM simply move on to another, there is no need to blame anyone and ofc he doesn't do it intentionally.
      * NGK is a great Kernel with good dev but there is no reason to be fanboys with everything.
      * Reignz is one the few devs left supporting the F1 and keep it alive. He was one of the first who released A13 first (and always new android versions), he maintain multiple ROMs and a Kernel for your taste, it's the reason the TWRP can decrypt A12+ encrypted ROMs, his trees and his kernel is used by others to build their ROMs. Instead of blaming him, you should support that kind of devs so they don't leave.
      * The F1 community must be better and less toxic. There are a lot of (general) things happening behind the scences which you may don't know, so please be more careful with your accusations.
    • As I said in the past, you better use XDA more to ask questions rather Telegram groups. Some of these groups are handled by admin(s) which ban, mute, kick and have explosions most of the time for no reason. Use XDA ROM threads which are handled by mature moderators and take legit actions. If you can't find a ROM or Kernel thread in XDA, use my (this) thread.
    • Pixel Experience for F1 is currently dropped and have a spot open for new maintainer so don't expect A13 anytime soon, unless an official maintainer found and apply for it. You can move on and use different ROM since we already have some exceptional ROMs.
