I switched to this rom a few days ago. First of all, thanks for this. Very nice. But i have one little issue. The auto brightness seems a bit weird. It works yes, but in some cases the screen turns very bright or very dark. The crdroid (android 10) doesn't have this "issue". Is there a fix?

Auto brightness has always been quite erratic on this device.

It is on my to-do list of things to check since long time but as it probably requires major changes time availability doesn't give me the opportunity to deal with it.

We'll see if I get the time to work on it.

I have another issue. But i dunno whether it is related to the rom or the gapps package i use. The thing is, my whatsapp folder deletes itself after restoring my backup. It's gone. Do you know what that could mean? Or is it a gapps issue?

To solve the brightness problem, I use the YAAB application from play store and set higher then minimum brightness level.

It may be Storage Manager messing up with local files if your device is short of space or files deletion if application was manually uninstalled.
ROM or gapps should not delete any local files during upgrade, no issues here.

I found out, it isn't an issue. The folder didn't disappear. The location for all the whatsapp stuff were changed. It isn't in the root of the internal storage anymore, it is now in /android/media/com.whatsapp/.

So...everything is fine. Not an memory problem.

There is a bug when try to configure notification when phone is horizontal.
Long press on the notification with multiple type, like "App is displaying over other application", and you will be able to configure every type of notification in a pop-up.
This work fine when phone is vertical, but in horizontal, notification area will auto close when pop-up open, and then pop-up will close because notification area is closed.

Maybe this is a bug from upstream, I also found this bug in my Mix 2.

Does it happen over some specific notifications category (music, message notifications, fixed ones)?
Also check with other DPIs/Display sizes if you are using a custom one and let me know.

Cant reproduce it on my end.

min-width is 436dp.

I'm using the release 07/18/2021.
Here is a GIF how I reproduce this:
* This gif is too large to upload to XDA so I use an external service, maybe a little slow.
