I must say this is so far the best rom I have experienced for our mi 9. I have tried nearly all the roms being offered here in the past weeks but none of them has been so flawless like this one since the last iteration. I am very happy with it and I'm looking forward to the further development. Good work!

Thanks for the update, dev!

The fluidity and speed is noticeable from the first moment you navigate through the interface, I hadn't noticed something like that for a long time.

The only problem I had was with the fingerprint reader. I could never save any, the process was always canceled and it only recognized the first attempts to register it, then it did not read the fingerprint anymore and it ended in error.

I changed my fingers, I changed the color of the light and i had no luck.

Everything else worked really well for me. Again, thank you very much for your work.

Could you record a log while you try to register fingerprint please? For example using the matlog app

I have never used the app and I have not recorded any logs either. So I don't know if I got it right:

1. I opened the app and chose the CLEAR option.
2. I immediately made my way to the footprint settings.
3. I tried to register my fingerprint until I witnessed the failure.
4. I returned to the Matlog app, I chose the PAUSE option and finally the SAVE ZIP option.

I made two attempts with different fingers. These were the files that were saved. In the same way, if I did it wrong, I would be grateful if you could tell me how to properly record a log.
Thanks in advance, dev!

Same fingerprint issue here: coming from Pixel experience plus ROM, clean flash on a MI9 6GB ram 64GB. Below you'll find the log.
Everything else is simply perfect, many thanks and great respect for your work dev!

I come here to say that this cost rom is very good. But it's wasting a lot of battery. I'm using it for more than a week, even making a clean rom didn't stop the exaggerated battery consumption.

Been using this rom since last saturday, and really loving it.
Just 2 issues
1 - Google Maps fails to record location history (tried almost everything with no luck).
2 - I can charge the phone only with one specific cable. Faced the same issue with other non Miui rom.
On Miui all of my cables used to work.

@LoganDeveloper It will be possible to do "dirty" update to A12 version of your ROM or is it necessary to do clean flash?
Do you know some more specific release date A12 version? :)

Thank you for your time and work.

It's recommended to clean flash when it's a new Android version
I'm still working on the A12 version of EvoX so be patient, Snow is coming soon...
Maybe in November

    I published a new build (08/10/2021)

    It's just a little update, there is no change in the rom side, i just tried to optimize a little bit more the rom for cepheus and to fix some issues. Anyway, i hope that you will like it :)

    here are the changes:​

    • Wi-Fi connection improvements​

    • Use of Vulkan as the default Skia UI rendering API instead of OpenGL​

    • Kernel upstreamed to v4.14.243​

    • Kernel optimization​

    • Update blobs from V12.5.3.0.RFACNXM​

    • Battery stats now available in the battery settings​

    • Widevine L1 issue when recovered from xiaomi.eu fixed​

    For the widevine L1 bug fix, i would need feedbacks as i can't test it myself, thank you 🙏

    Here is the link to download it: Sourceforge | EvolutionX_5.9.1 (08/10/2021)

    Really good build (customization, scrolling screenshots from Android 12 etc.). Thank you! But I got some issues:
    1) device goes to boot animation and restart when I try to install Facebook, or Messenger and verify 2FA (to get verification text message); try to check all dark themes. Something like a kernel panic?
    2) after night of charging device won't wake up (only LED was turned on). I had to reset by long press power.

    Is something wrong with permissions / SEPolicy? Exceptions: com.google.android.dialer...

    ROM: evolution_cepheus-V5.9.1-rq3a.210805.001.a1-08091528-unofficial (clean install)

    Logs: Logcat during issue | Kernel log
    Thank you for your feedback

    I wasn't able to reproduce your first problem, but it seems that the ims service crashed completely
    I got the second problem once, but in an earlier build. It seems to be quite rare, I thought it was fixed

    I'll try to figure out how to fix these issues :)
