Hey @alibei i finally installed the Rom back again an have couple of updates

Fod is still hit and miss, I have installed 5 fingerprints from the same thumb and still sometimes it does not recognize, sometimes it is blazing fast, can't figure out why.

The other is charging, phone doesn't charge faster than 8 watts, I found an app called AccA in xda which let me to force the charging upto 4.2v 3000mah but don't want to go higher since even the charger shows 3000mah 5v as option. I can't set the voltage higher than 4.2v anyways.

I still need the Rom daily, I have just delivered my masters thesis and I have to do a presentation yet but soon, I will be happy to be your test subject lol.

Hi, please have a consistent pressure while you press the fod. Also 5 fingerprints is way to much.

The phone does only charge with 30W when you use the stock cable, different cables can work too, but the pd pin is essential without it fastcharge is blocked. I will attach a photo so you can see the pd pin.

Also these apps have problems with reading the correct values. The franco kernel manager shows the right values.

And nice I hope your presentation will be great. And I can always need some testers :D

I will continue to experiment with fod, it is so funny, 5 times it is blazing fast unlocks in a snap, 6th is direct error lol.

By the way I don't have the 30watt chsrger, only 22watt which doesn't have that pin, and the chsrger is original of that I am sure.

I have the Franco kernel manager installed to disable zram :D I will check the charging values via it then.

@MinimalDroid yeah that happens I am familiar with that, but it also happens in a completely dark room too, which buffles me.

Zram is compressed data kept in ram. I tend to believe it is for devices with low ram. We have more than enough :) and to compress data, it uses cpu, sooo, no thank you :)

Is there actually a Miracast alternative to connect with FireTV stick?

Edit: Found a solution. Just pull down the quickstart buttons and press the button to share screen. This will trigger the search for devices. If you just open the settings without using the button you can't trigger a search.

An update following the latest release; fod is better than before, somehow it is snappy and failure free atm. Recognition is faster and it fails only if I don't put my finger right.

I ordered 33watt charger, it should arrive today. I don't feel like I need to install miui again lol :D

Maybe camera, i can't use gcam that good, mi camera app is stupid proof for me lol :D

Which options are save to do a full backup with TWRP? I made a backup and tried some apps and then wanted to make a restore, now the phone stucks in "Phone is starting ..." screen after restoring the backup.

Edit: Can we also get a checksum for the official files in first post :) Thanks

@alibei i got the turbo charger but Franco kernel still says 9watt. It is the same cable like you showed with extra metal in the middle and red.

Will check again but I am sure adaptor is original 33 watt charger.

    Just a question about hands free talking mode. People sometimes complain that they get an echo of their own voice. They never complained with stock rom. Maybe its not ROM related, but just wanted to know if you guys experience the same or not.

    Hello Developer of rom is taking a break and we are patiently waiting for anx camera port from another dev. In short - just have to wait
    Hi, this port is not working on los based roms. Already tried it

    Just installed, google pay let me add a card, so I am staying and not going back to MIUI! Cheers @alibei
    Ngl, I just thought that there would be a bit more customization like Havoc OS or RR. Nevertheless, please any idea how to get the stock cam please?
    Just havent found it, but PLEASE, is there always on display? The stock MIUI one was terrible. And I loved the one on RR

    I've been running lineage os on the latest build for almost a month now. How does this compare to cipher os?

    Lineage os has been great but on my experience it has 3 main issues, at least in my device

    1-sometimes it freezes completely. It could happen either every 4 or 5 days once, or sometimes 3 times in a day. It just freezes, the screen remains on and it becomes unresponsive, I have to reboot.


    2- some of the working apps I use detect the phone has root and won't work, even tho I didn't root the phone, I just unlocked the bootloader and installed twrp.

    3- under screen fingerprint is just not working right. I'm talking 5 straight attempts telling me that is not recognized. Only 1 out of 10 attempts will recognize the finger right away.

    So, does cipher has the same short comings? More? Less?
    These bugs get fixed in the update after the one which comes tomorrow / day after tomorrow

    Great rom Alibei, thanks a lot!
    Only bug for me so far is microphone when on speaker phone. It sound like I'm under water according to the persons I talk to. Normal mic and Bluetooth mic works great.
    Do you think this is firmware, gapps or ROM related? Full disclosure: I use full nikgapps with tweaked nikgapps.config to enable Android Auto and Google backups during initial setup. Any chance this could be solved if I flash latest weekly Chinese firmware? 🤔
    No it's a problem on my side. I already working on this
