The Styx Project is a custom Android based distribution that aims to subtly enhance the beauty of stock Android while still keeping the smoothness, stability, neatness and performance of pure AOSP.

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

With our first Android 11 release, we would like to bring z2_plus to the front, with the latest features, stability patches hot from the Styx Project development team.

Been testing this rom and i must say one of the best minimalistic rom out there with many source side optimization and the legendary 3.18 kernel which gives better sot compared to 4.4 kernels out there
Deep sleep works well saves lot on idle
Gapps take some time to settle heats a bit in setup, its common for rom with prebuilt gapps and after it settles its smooth enough for day to day use i can easily get 6 hours sot with 2year old battery on low usage
Kudos to dmitri for such great rom hope to see many rock solid stuffs in near future

For initial build this ROM is great. Phone runs smooth and haven't faced any issue. I'd love to see encryption support in future, currently it gets stuck on styx logo when I try to encrypt. Other than that this is a great rom. Kudos to devs.

This rom reports that it has Pixel goodies, and while Google Photos recognize it as a Pixel 5, photo uploads is still counted in Drive storage space

[UPDATED]

Stable & fluid AF experience with blazing fast app launching speeds (feels like SD845 inside lol) compared to other 11 ROMS with a good SOT.

Font is very clean & refreshing (need name 🖤), minimalistic wallpapers are dope and the Moto Widget was a surprise. VoLTE logo is lob!

The only downsides are LOW AUDIO issue (not rebooting much is a workaround) and random app freezes in various apps. Serious jitters and lags below 30% battery even without battery saver enabled.

Next update with these fixes will make it the A11 DOMINATOR in stability and performance.

AMAZING WORK TO DEV!

But the only downside is the LOW AUDIO issue and random app freezes in various apps. WiFi Hotspot is kinda buggy (doesn't turn on sometimes and automatically turns off in between usage).

Hoping to stick to it from the next update. Great work to dev.
Thanks for review, app freezes gonna get fixed in next build, maybe low audio also

In terms of battery economy, this rom is second to none. The fluidity is also very good, but there are some applications freezes. The Google assistant does not work for me, it does not go to voice call. Ota does not work. But the rom is amazing. For me, the volume of calls on it is better than on others. You can hear the interlocutor very well, which was not so obvious on other roms.

    This rom is brilliant. There are still suspensions, but it allows you to create copies of photos for Google photos. And the battery is fabulous. Thanks so much for this miracle.
