2. Do we need to flash Gapps?
Ans. Yes Corvus OS does come with prebuilt gapps.

while installing gapps because of this YES I get a message that gapps already exists,
so I conclude: Corvus indeed comes with gapps,
so shouldn't the answer be "NO"?

i hope playstore will be certified next update
when installing additional gapps, I don't get a problem with play store, at least I could install Titanium Backup from there, so this may be a workaround for you

in Battery Bar settings, when changing the thickness, it is displayed in the style setting instead...(just a display issue I guess, it works otherwise)

Rom is totally awesome. everything available except-
Call recording not available.
During a call- a dot is blinking (i think proximity sensor) on
top of the screen. IN EVERY CUSTOM ROM TILL NOW
No app lock inbuilt
Fingerprint icon and animation both brightness is screen
brightness , like if brightness is low then you can not see
fingerprint icon and animation ( i think it's a fix for whole
screen brightness pops when we press on fingerprint icon,
cause this problem is fixed in this rom)
Always on display is not like realme ui (in every custom
rom it's the same) Screen content not moving and
fingerprint icon is always visible.
A option to show fingerprint icon when device in motion
(like in realme ui)
Messages app is not changing according to dark theme

And thanks a lot devs for this amazing rom and amazing work
Plz add better camera features to this rom, please it's a request.

I agree with the lots here. Awesome rom. Please stay on custom vendor. It really gives us a hassle free flashing experience

Working very well on my 1991
The fingerprint unlock is the best reliability.
Just one more thing is the battery is just ok,not the best.

Thanks you for all working on this rom.

Want to know how to update this rom and where i have the rom file without gapss ?for future updates

I already posted a link where I found the downoads:

gapps seem to be included, so if you don't want them, you're either lost or find a tool to uninstall them (if this is possible at all, but may be someone already found a way...).

I would update like most other ROMs do, via dirty flashing. I always make a backup via Titanium and a backup via TWRP. I check the most important apps first. If any other app has problems afterwards I simply restore via Titanium.

1. While turning off the screen or turning on the screen on center part of my diplays pixels blink radmolly ( is this bcoz of rom or something else?

is it "Screen Off Animation"? I like fast transitions, so I disabled all animations (all three "speeds" in dev options to 0 ms and may be the option in accessibility settings).
At least I don't have these pixels...

2. Under theme corvus theme clear is lagging on settings page.. its shows complete dark background.

never seen that dark background...so it may be caused by animations (I have them all switched off).
Corvus Clear may be a bit slower (I guess because of more work to be done for transparency).

3. Finger print after unlocking stays on the screen for few times

Do you mean the fingerprint icon or the animation?
May be I had the icon remaining on the screen, too, when I started with this ROM (but may be, it was another ROM).

I reinstalled Corvus several times from scratch while experimenting, so I learned to do the FP registration with all kinds of finger positions starting carefully with the main part. I think, you should better do it again, if the detection does not work smoothly in the registration process especially for the first part and if detection of the following parts seems to be difficult.
I assume, the first part is extended by the following parts, so if the first doesn't work well the following have difficulties, too.
If you register multiple fingers, you always have some backup finger (also add one of the other hand, in case of an accident).
Re-register a finger that doesn't work well.

Now, FP is always working very fast and in all situations.

I have gapps installed+rom on my phone realme x2 .
Is it okay to update the rom with 1.3 gb file include gapps to install ? Is this fine or i have to find without gapps software package ?

As a user I think, this should work. Some gapps may be older afterwards (from the date the ROM was released), but they get updated again. For gapps data is usually not a big problem, if the data of a google app is damaged, you can usually clear it's data, log in again and wait for sync. That are the benefits of cloud based apps.

I have flashed this ROM and facing a bug. I am not able to edit the quick setting.
Please suggest an alternate way to do it.

    Corvus OS is another retarded ROM with many retarded Customization. First, it's inspired by Dirty Unicorns (thanks to Alex Cruz), but then we picked many other features too. Our objectives are a stable and feature ROM that can be enjoyed by many devices. We won't say that Corvus is better ROM than others, but we always try to give you the best.

    Rom is better than any other rom available
    All ok except :-
    Tap on fingerprint blinks screen on full brightness sometimes
    Fingerprint unlocking is not fast, ( scanning fast but the unlocking time is too much, I'm talking about after scanner stops and lock screen goes and before homescreen comes up)
    There's no app lock inbuilt
    Camera is better than any other rom available for realme x2 but but theres not all options available like slow mo, 64 mp macro etc only video on 30,60 fps and photo available
    Status bar top left and right corner hide half battery icon and clock digits. There's no way to fix this.
    Call recording not available.
