It's the first time I actually update Havoc ROM through OTA. Everything was fine in the installation process, but I am wondering if I can delete the .zip file of the downloaded update in order to free some storage. Is there a specific folder where I can find the .zip file or it is deleted once the system is up to date? Thanks.

I tried out the attached recovery, since no one wanted to give information about it.
It is just a simplified recovery for installing Havoc OS, I personally did not really like it. You can stay on OrangeFox/TWRP to install the newest Havoc OS, it is not necessary to install this recovery.

I'm currently using 3.12. Does 4.8 have any noticeable improvements (besides the upgrade to android 11) or is it just the same? I'd like to try but it's been a week and 4.8 is still missing from the download page. Thanks.

    Sorry guys due to some server issue, all builds got deleted. Builds upto 3.x are restored. Will be uploading all 4.x builds soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Hello. I'm currently on v3.12. can I dirty flash the 4.8 without wiping. Will it work. Thanks
    No. Clean flash is required if moving from 3.x to 4.x
    Can someone share version 4.8?

    Why was the release removed from the havoc servers? (Only GApps visible?)
    I don't care, because I use havoc already since 03.02. I still find it strange that here is no information about it.
    My experience so far:
    - Subsequent Android encryption does not work
    - Connection to WLAN access points doesn't work with MAC spoofing enabled
    - I can confirm the hotspot bug from @Pawneshwer

    Everything else seem to work so far, but I haven't tried every function yet.
