Probably the most anticipated update has arrived.

OK Google hotword detection finally works again while on lockscreen or while screen is off. Along with that, issues with audio on other apps should no longer be an issue as well. The issue with Live wallpapers crashing SystemUI repeatedly has been fixed. It was related to the theming options added in the previous build, specifically the SysUI color options which have now been removed. A MIUI-style volume panel option has been added. QS tint styles have been revamped and now you can choose from 4 options (default, accent color, OOS and Android 12). Navbar/LS/Ambient pulse has been removed indefinitely due to breaking the ROM for devices with hardware keys. Lockscreen charging info has also been removed for providing inaccurate estimates. Other changes below! Enjoy!

Hey all, been following this ROM closely in order to finally upgrade to A11 AOSP. Using PE10 and MIUI EU mostly for now, and I see Hotword is now fixed. Huge props to joeyhuab! I'd love to try this and send at least a coffee your way.

I do have a couple of doubts that I hope some of you can clear up. Sorry if it's troublesome.

1. Is device showing as certified without Magisk? (SafetyNet)
2. Do I need the A10 vendor/firmware or should the one I have from latest MIUI EU work fine?

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes
2. Better to flash vendor for your region from

Moving from A10 to A11 clean flash is reommended ie formatting & wiping data,
better backup with either migrate or swift backup.

This is definetly the best custom rom I used for K20 pro,, I appreciate the hard work put in by Joeyhuab.
I only encountered one problem LTE bands seems to be limited, I used eu rom before flashing this rom and I don't know wether its the rom or vendor I flashed but I think band B38 ( TDD 2600 )is not working, im not sure though.

again thank you so much Joey for this amazing rom.

Will using the ROM with pitch black theme improve battery life or will it be the same as using any other colour?
Using amoled black will always improve battery life, similar to using minimum brightness.
Thanks for the update.
"MIUI compact volume panel style" is great.
Idea:
1.Is the application hide feature available? (So we can hide apps that take up too much space in the app drawer.)
2. Can we add making the app drawer transparent, as in the quick settings? (It adds a nice touch to the phone.)
1. No. That is launcher dependent.
2. No. That is also launcher dependent. Just install a custom launcher to satisfy your needs.
Sir video call is not working properly please fix it I really love evolution X rom but I video call alot and I need that feature so please fix it as soon as possible
I don't have video calling capabilities available in my country's carriers so I cannot test anything related to voice/video calls over LTE or WiFi. That means I cannot fix issues related to those.

The ROM doesn't change handling of any LTE bands so I suggest flashing the proper vendor/firmware appropriate for your device variant before flashing my ROM as that is modem dependent.
Hi, theres a bug that if you change the colour of when you press the fingerprint, the fingerprint authentication stops working.
Only white and cyan will work as the other fingerprint colors are included for other devices.

    Just a quick update before I try building Evo's Android 12. Hopefully, this fixes the remaining issues with SafetyNet. Tested it passing as long as the Magisk app is hidden and MagiskHide is toggled on. Other changes can be found below.

    Ultra wide camera option no more in any camera apps
    I have Burial's GCam and everything works fine. Ultrawide also. Quality is better than ANX.
    After this, flashing regular TWRP will be persistent?
    Yes, in my case I flashed it after TWRP and I still had access to it after reboot.
