Does anyone have any experience with this rom? How does it behave? Power consumption, moto mods and so on?

It seems to me that the rom is encrypted because it does not allow me to access the phone

Awesome ROM! Stable, smooth, responsive and battery friendly.
@HeltonMax - thank you for your work, now I understand why you have abandoned the RR project :)

To everybody reporting bugs - I think the key is to install it properly: 1. fresh stock Pie, 2. twrp 3.5, 3. double format, 4. wipe everything, including internal memory, 5. flash rom and install all the stuff from scratch - not from backup. At least I did it this way and it worked like a charm.

@HeltonMax : four issues/questions though:
1. incoming calls - always vibration, then increasing ringtone - regardless of ringing option I choose (Settings -> Sound -> Incoming calls vibration) - is it some glitch or am I doing something wrong?
2. didn't find option to wake the phone with volume keys - is it present at some secret hidden place?
3. didn't find the option to define lockscreen shortcuts - for example camera on the right and some widget on the left. Is it possible somehow?
4. I really miss System Profiles option (Car, Default, Silent - and so on, with bluetooth triggers - which is very useful when pairing phone with car each time). Would it be possible for you to include this functionality?

Best regards @HeltonMax and all the DotOS crew!

@HeltonMax : about the above 4 points - I found some additional info about no. 1: disabling Pocket mode causes vibration to work normally. Enabling it causes that on incoming call there is only one vibration, then only sound and no vibration. Can the Pocket mode be set somehow, or this has to work that way? I mean that vibration in Pocket mode would be useful 🙂
Best regards!

Hello,
I have tried to install this Rom
But my phone does not start with the rom

"Error: failed to load Kernel!"

I have read that the firmware is needed
"
ROM Firmware Required: ALBUS_PPS29.133-30_cid50_subsidy-DEFAULT_regulatory-DEFAULT_CFC.xml"

How do I update this?

Greetings Sebastian

Would you say its good enough to upgrade from RR right now?

Yep. Equally battery friendly. Full moto mod battery and jbl support. Unfortunately no as customizable as RR - but on the other hand Android 11, which is good. I would definately stay on this rom and use it as a daily driver, but in a meantime some bluetooth connection issue emerged - I've reported it to HeltonMax, still awaiting for response (the man is busy I guess) :)
Wait a while, maybe HeltonMax will figure it out - I'm really counting on it!
Right now I'm on PE by jeangraff30, but unfortunately it likes juice a bit too much - although it is rock solid stable and really good looking, I have to admit :)
Which RR do you use?

@Neogx : after some updates (Android System Webview for example) this ROM behaves better and better, almost perfect. I think you could already try it, it is already perfect successor of RR. Last three days I've been using it as a daily driver - and no complaints, only some short wishlist. We will see how HeltonMax will react to it :)

Two issues so far:
1) JBL mod volume is only 0 or 100% - no steps between... with the last version 20210517 it works OK - thank you!
2) Android Auto doesn't allow to use phone, although the access is granted in Applications submenu. I've tried all the hints I have found - but it seems to be some internal system problem. Correct me please if someone knows a way to fix it.

Overall impression besides those two: great ROM! Thanks @HeltonMax ! :)

Yep, actually very good ROM, I'm using it for about 1 month and it was very stable, without hiccups and reboots. Just two questions, 1) is there an option to change the music with volume buttons? Usually the majority of ROMs have this option included, but I couldn't find it on this Rom and 2) is there a posibility to disable screen gestures while the navbar is also disabled? I would like to use only fingerprint for navigation, without screen gestures. Anyway, thanks for making this ROM possible ;)

@Helton, First of all: thanx for your work, Bro'!

Second: I've seen the Official (5.1 version) release of the DotOS in the DotOS website. The Golden question: can I flash the 5.1 over the 5.0 version? Or I wait your release here?

Peace and love for you all! Big hug from RS-Br.

Very, very nice rom! I've flashed the last unofficial version with CameraGo and it works almost perfect.

A couple of issues though:
1) Android Auto still doesn't want to use the phone app. I've checked the same configuration (AA version and permissions) on Havoc (also by HeltonMax) - and it works OK, so it seems that there's something missing in the rom itself,
2) how the photo resolution in CameraGo can be changed? Or it is just what it is and cannot be changed? It would be odd...
3) after installing youtube app I can send it's picture through wifi to my samsung tv, but when I try to send the phone screen through system Send Screen - it searches a device for a while, and that's it - never finds any...
4) I've disabled the g-assistant and would like to assign screen recording function to a left shortcut in lockscreen. How can I do this?

Great job @HeltonMax! Congratulations on going official. Did you think of going official also with Havoc rom?

    Installed the fix apk to update via OTA, but when tried to update it just booted to twrp and nothing happened.
    from the next build this will be fixed,
    if you want you can install this kernel that already contains the fix with it you can upgrade normally from v5.1.2 to 5.1.3 via OTA.
    But I recommend that as soon as you do this, pass the kernel again because the version on the site doesn't have this fix
