It didn't in older versions, but it happened twice since the last release. Screen frozen, couldn't do anything except reboot by holding the power button. Both times happened while watching videos/gifs. Hope it gets fixed.
Never happened to me until yesterday, now suddenly 2 times within the last 24 hours. Both times I was browsing in Firefox and suddenly the screen freezes until I restart the phone.

This random freeze thing is also happening to me.

I dirty flashed to get rid of the idle drain, now every day at least once phone is unresponsive and I have to force restart it.

When I do that, Relay for Reddit completely resets itself, my account is removed, cache is cleared.

No idea what's up

Hello,

Im coming from ArrowOS, vecause i wanted a working ANXcamera.
It all seems fine, except the charging speed.
I just cant fugure out whats the problem.
In certain roms fastcharging is working fi e like in Arrow OS it was working perfectly.
Now i flashed the newest China Firmware and this Rom but fast charging isnt working anymore(only getting around 800ma at best).
This cant be a Hardware problem since i tried different Chargers and different Cables amd roght before changing Rom it wkrked fine.

Does anyone know a solution? Maybe its a formware problem shpuld i be using EU firmware for my EU phone?
Or could it be a tweak in the OS itself?

Guys when you flash the latest update flash the latest vantom kernel as well. Otherwise you'll experience random freezes like I wrote above post.

Now my freeze issues are gone. Unreal battery idle, the line is basically flat all night!

Interesting, any downsides to using vantom over the default kernel?

Edit: I've just checked under device info, and this rom is already using vantom! Maybe it's an older, buggy version? 🤔

I've actually got a freeze today, I've tried flashing the latest one, "VantomKernel-davinci-172-SweetSooner-20210401.zip" v4.14.228, but it gives me error 1 saying "no ramdisk found to unpack" and it stops. What can I do? Also, which one did you flash?

Thank you

Edit: Got another freeze while using the Google app, let's hope for a fix in the next build.

Flash Magisk then flash the kernel
If you need magisk, you will have to reflash magisk after the kernel again

Phone takes a really long time to charge and battery drains relatively quick. 🙁

Also, I'd request native call recording, three finger screenshot, aptX and the screenshot float options to disappear when taking another screenshot.

I used several versions of this ROM now, I just started to wonder if we need to install a specific firmware before flashing the ROM, or is it included in the 'vendor' of this ROM? (And may I ask what specific firmware version is being used?). Just asking so that I can be sure the ROM will perform at it's best.

Latest ROM is running great on Mi 9T, only a little bit of micro-stutters here and there (mostly when pulling down QS). Other than that perfect with good battery management and reliable screen-off FOD.

Hi all, just have a little question : i am on xiaomi.eu MIUI 12.5, twrp 3.4.0-0.

You talk about firmware, ROM, kernel ... I tought firmware and ROM was the same thing but i have a doubt now ....
By the way i'm french so it may be a translation problem lol !

Can i flash this rom with my actual setup ?

    Pas de souci, ca va le faire.
    Il y a un TWRP plus récent voir site officiel) , mais ce n'est pas necessaire.
    Ne pas oublier de faire a full format data at first step.
    -----------------------------------------
    No problem, it will.
    There is a newer TWRP (see official site), but it is not necessary.
    Don't forget to do a full format data at first step.

      @Hack64 It looks like the sharing settings may be wrong on that link. It wants me to "request access".

      Also, if you know a link for instructions on how to install the latest CN firmware that would be great - if not I'll Google it.

      Thanks for the excellent work
      You can find firmware from this site:
      https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/

      Download fw zip file not ROM or Vendor zip. (fw zip size is 80-90 MB)
      Flash like other zip file from TWRP, wipe catch and dalvik, reboot. (No need wipe data or clean flash ROM)

      Knocking on wood, but the random freezes seem to be fixed in the latest build, or at least I didn't experience any more after updating. Now this rom is really perfect as far as I can tell, great job!

      Update

      I decided to break the schedule once more to provide a fix for the idle drain that has been present since initial build.

      Changelog:
      - Added heads up QS Tile
      - Switched to prebuilt audio hal
      - Fixed idle drain (2-3% overnight with no AOD)

      I'd like to thank Laker/Alexey for his discover, as he was the one who managed to pinpoint what caused our drain issue.
