    Guys, I've just noticed that I can't get spotify to play via Android Auto (the controls indicate that the track is playing, but no audio is heard). I've tried in 2 different cars where it's always worked before I flashed this ROM. Are there any other AA users here who can confirm?

    For a good Camera:

    I finally found a good Camera replacement with all 3 lenses working on this ROM. Slow motion and just about everything else I've tested seems to work.

    Installed camera and used the config file. Seems OK, but still not as many features as Pixtica from what I can see.

    There was no option to install the latest 5.8 version via OTA (at least not at the time of writing), so I downloaded and flashed manually. Looks OK so far, including June security updates. Will report back anything else I discover.

    Aye, good for stills and videos, but slow motion and 48MP, I couldn't get that toenrkk right, I tried everything available

    It's because it appears the hardware is not able to record at the highest 48MP mode in more than 720p. OnePlus software must be doing tricks to make it appear as 4K in slowmo if you say it can do it. I've never tried it in OOS so i really cant speak to that fact. I looked at articles after i was unable to force slow-motion at 4k or even 2K (with the BSG app), but then found real-world tests in articles on the internet using Stock OOS couldn't truly do it either, so it's not the camera app/software's fault -just a camera sensor/hardware limitation.

    Here is the article link: https://www.hispeedcams.com/oneplus-8-slow-motion-is-pegged-at-480fps/

    I also was able to tweak the camera slow-mo settings better and bump up the quality bits to 50Mbit recording stream.
    BSG Camera: Settings-->Stream Configs Slow-mo-->Camcorder Profile-->videoBitRate

    It still isn't that great for slow-mo, but again a hardware limitation. You have to back down to 240fps for 1080p and anything more must use 720p. The 4K recording is awesome quality, but sadly as you stated no Slow-mo. If you are doing it on the stock OOS, it has to be stitching together images or doing enhancements or something since the sensor hardware can't do it.

    It appears most phones now just record at 60-120fps and then cut-down the frames in software to achieve the same slow-mo thing. So might as well record at full 4K at 60 fps for great quality and use software to make it slow-mo.

    Just FYI, Oneplus 9 has the same issue and complaints: https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/how-to-record-4k-120-fps-slow-motion-video.1415150/

    I don't know what's doing it, and honestly I don't mind what's doing it.

    For me, sitting there and trying to use a feature I had, that others do have will make me look over the fence, I explained this in previous posts.

    Can I rationalize not switching back?

    Of course, I can find benefits in both ROMs.

    Bottom line for me is the camera, but also some bits that you don't see or normally use but you will miss.

    For the time being at least I'm sticking with OOS.

    To be clear, Evo X is a phenomenal ROM, that was never in doubt, mainly just th camera

    I tested all of the gcam and Nokia and other camera APK's plus some third party stand alone apps, none of the software came close, stills were awesome, no doubt about it, video was adequate, the rest was lacking.

    Anyway.......

    Happy Friday👍😂

    And since I barely ever use my camera for anything else then taking a pic of my car during a build log or to memorize where a specific wire, plug or bolt went I can get around with GCam just fine luckily.

    I tried every single custom ROM there is for the OP8P and all of them had some weird "problem" I couldn't fix and most of the time other people couldn't even reproduce it while I could flash after flash but I blame myself / my specific phone lol.

    OOS works fine but it's boring. Very boring. So I am going back to this again. Hopefully this time Google Assistant will actually work and the AOD FP touch after unlock issue will not be present here

    I found what was causing bad FP unlock for me on this rom and explained the fix here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...5-8-built-in-06-10-2021.4276623/post-85155117

    Strangely enough -this June 10th update didn't need a persist restore as the other versions did.

    Also, using light yellow fingerprint color and miui default animation seems to help. It unlocks very fast for me now everytime without errors.

    Aye and for most times i.m the same, but on occasion I like doing something different.

    Which begins to bug me, hence the change

      Yea i seen the issues you spoke of and they didn't bother me apart from connectivity that's why I asked. XML's created properly really make a big difference. I don't have a thread only Telegram which I run for mainly Arnova the GCam dev who's Cam I create the majority of XML's for but also many other GCam devs. I've shared some samples below with latest Cam and XML for it to give an idea athough they look compressed so real images I have are better quality than here. I don't use anything else tbh. Sorry I'm not trying to promote anything here just help for the camera of this rom maybe. If need be I can delete this
      No need to delete. I enjoy seeing people converse about the ROM and it's performance overall (along with cams and such). Great to hear y'all are enjoying it :)

      No worries man, I couldn't recommend it enough.

      I do look for issues so if I find/found one I'd be the first to have a moan, but yea...nothing yet mate.

      So re: XML files for gcam?

      Do they make a big difference ?

      Have you got a thread for them??

      Those pics I took were just quick point and shoot, I was taken aback by them, quite good.

      Think I'll miss the photocrom though, barely use it though.

      Ok so i flashed this badboy, very impressed by it's pace, such a snappy ROM, it's running like silk.

      anyway i thought i'd make the guide to flash a little easier than whats described in the OP, the sideload alone could be confusing and be careful of what version you download; polaris and instantnoodle are both hosted there, you want instantnoodlep (i know most people know this but it could be handy to know what to look out for)

      Anyway, heres the installation guide and root, i've opted for the payload method, plus i've uploaded the magisk patched zip for 11.0.6.6 with magisk 23 in use.



      Download the recovery and Evo X files and place in ADB folder.


      On your computer
      -------------------


      1. Connect your phone to your computer and open a CMD / Powershell terminal pointed to the ADB folder, mines in the root of C so c:\adb

      2. Run this code: adb reboot bootloader - your phone will reboot to the bootloader

      3. Run this code: fastboot flash recovery .\instantnoodlep-recovery.img and press enter

      NOTE: you can search for the img by typing in it's first letter then press "Tab" so type in i then press "Tab", this will populate the command with the first letter beginning with whatever you typed i = instantnoodlep-recovery.img


      On your phone
      ------------------

      1. Using the volume keys navigate to "Recovery Mode" and press the power key, youll then be in the custom recovery

      2. Click "Factory reset" in the menu, then click format data (THIS WILL WIPE YOUR DEVICE, BE SURE TO MAKE A BACK UP BEFORE YOU DO THIS)

      3. Once complete back out then click apply "Apply Update" this will open up the sideload feature, click "Apply from ADB"


      On your computer
      ------------------

      1. Run this code: adb sideload "NAME OF ZIP" (again you can use the tab feature to find the file)

      2. Once you press enter the process will start and it will flash thereafter, this will take a while (make a cuppa while you wait)


      On your phone
      --------------

      1. Back out of sideload and click "Factory reset" once more then format data

      2. Finally click on Reboot now and the device will reboot, the first boot should be a lot faster than OOS, you'll know it's working as the boot sequence will be different



      Rooting
      ----------


      1. Download the relevant custom ROM and open the zip, you'll see a bunch of files, copy out the payload.bin file

      2. Using the payload dumper program, copy the payload.bin file from your ROM zip to the "input" folder within your payload dumper folder structure

      3. Run the payload dumper tool and it'll extract a bunch of images which will be placed in the "output" folder, we want the boot image (boot.img)

      4. On your phone, enable developer options and install Magisk on your phone.

      5. Copy the stock boot.img to the root of your phone /sdcard

      6. Open Magisk and select the top "install" option on the main page

      7. You should only have one option if you aren't rooted and that will be "Select and Patch a File" select this then choose the boot.img you copied over

      8. Once patching is complete this will move the patched boot image to your "Downloads" folder, copy this out to your ADB folder on your computer

      9. On your computer open a CMD / Powershell terminal window pointed to your ADB folder and type in adb reboot bootloader, your phone will reboot

      10. Once in the bootloader type in fastboot boot "NAME OF IMAGE" in my instance the command was:
      fastboot boot .\magisk_patched-23000_gwZZy.img Once you press enter the device will boot with this image in use

      11. To make root permanent simply open magisk, then select the top install option, then "Direct Install"

      12. Finally reboot and you're done, root should be permanent.
