SafetyPatcher, Magisk Hide Props or similar modules.
But please, mind, we won't support any issue arising from Magisk nor relative modules.

Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.
So, head over the Telegram group and feel free to lurk.

Hello, thanks for your work.

Few (minor-ish) issues I've found:
•Gesture Navigation seem to be missing the right/left swipe gestures to go back, and HW keys work even when 3-button navigation is not selected. Gesture Navigation shows the settings for adjusting the Gesture Pill Bar length, and also left/right edge sensitivity, but the pill bar never seems to appear.

•Screenshot overlay (the one that appears after taking a screenshot, allowing you to edit/share) doesn't have a delete button, although I'm not sure if this is an issue or a feature.

•Also a few performance issues on my end: I thought it was the blur compositing tanking my phone's performance, but disabling blur in Developer Options (Under Hardware Accelerated Rendering --> Enable blurs: disabled) didn't seem to make a difference. This might just be in my head, but, any suggestions for improving performance?
The performance issues aren't extreme, just slightly off-putting.

Absolutely loving the style and aesthetics of the ROM, thanks again.

How can ROM have pre-installed GApps but no Camera app? Not even stock one?🙄

Also atleast for Vodafone India, you need to configure the APN first to use mobile data.

Other than these problems, I like the overall look & feel of the ROM. I don't use gesture navigation so that's not really a big prb for me.

Would love to have advanced restart options in power menu if possible as like most MiA1 devices, power & volume buttons are pretty much hopeless for my device as well 😣

So annoying guy. You could be way more polite in every post you comment on...
What's annoying? You label this "official" and it doesn't have this basic thing. I didn't curse or anything like that. I am frustrated to see this in non-betas. I am not asking for a photo app with tele/portrait support, and if this little thing called "fully working capacitive buttons" is too much to ask, then please excuse my lack of politeness.

Strange behavior: just for a moment i had a really strange lockscreen, everything aligned left with weather at the right of time (almost at the center of the screen), it actually looked very nice! But it soon disappeared and turn everything centered again. Is it a hidden feature?
