You claim to be mastering the UX and UI of your product but you don't even want to use 5 minutes to upload some screenshots, yet in your homepage you have 1 whole page dedicated for donation. White and blue definitely shouts your focus in UX and UI. Good luck mate.

In fact, I don't. Because I am not a Descendance, like how you claim yourself as. Are you Australian Native?

Thanks! Ended up installing fine.

Things I would change:

1. Remove the COVID bloatware.
2. Add advanced reboot options.
3. Add double-tap statusbar (or home button) to sleep.


1. Echo on VoIP calls. Unusable.
2. (USB) PTP and File transfer both not working on PC.

Besides that, ROM is fluid.

edit: uncertain about #2 -- could be my Windows. It does that.
Why use double tap to status bar to sleep?
Regular double tap anywhere on screen to sleep is not working?

    Descendant is a customised Android ROM that focuses on enhancing UX and UI
    over stock Android along useful features.


    Head to the download page.




    Instructions if you coming from a different rom (including MIUI):
    - Boot latest twrp from @vasishath ( fastboot boot path/to/twrp.img )
    - Flash descendant
    - Reboot to recovery
    - Format Data (not wipe, not factory reset)
    - Reboot to system

    Instructions if you coming from a descendant version (aka update)
    - Boot to TWRP recovery
    - Flash latest descendant release
    - Reboot to system

    NOTE: Everytime you flash descendant on any case (clean flash/dirty flash) you must leave the option where it says "Inject TWRP after flashing" on.
    The only case you should disable that option/toggle is when you want to flash magisk.

    Descendant has been tested with both 12.0.x & 12.5.x firmware versions and runs without any issues


    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.

    Preloaded applications
    Google Apps are included along Kiwi Browser and Metro.


    Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?
    Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.
    Bug reports without logs will be ignored.

    Covid Bloatware? Wtf, really?
    Installed as per the instructions given. Everything went fine. But for some reason I am not able to play prime video in HD 1080p. Widewine is L1 but still I wasn't able to play HD videos. And also the rom is pretty much aosp. Very few customization. Anyway thanx for this ROM.
    this is very weird, i don't have a netflix/amazon account so i cant test that but you should since L1 is there be able to play hd content, try cleaning the apps data/cache and try again, especially with netflix this is needed sometimes.
    Yes, descendant is focused on UI and on some needed features.
    I appreciate that you like the rom and took the effort to give feedback, if you encounter a different bug please attach a log too so i can be a bit more helpful.
