    What build are you on? They are showing for me on the 4-24 build.
    I was on the one before the latest... I never saw access points so my data was iffy.... i had to stay on stock... im on stock october right now... should i stay on october and then flash evo or flash latest last google stock and then flash evo?

    I think October was the last image for 2XL; I would backup and then do a factory reset and flash the latest build, 4-27; I have had no issues with it.

    ;)Fastboot boot latest twrp.img 3.5_9 if you are on Taimen 3.3 On Walleye. Flash latest EvoX Rom in TWRP flash TWRP installer .zip wipe cache and reboot. If havin fcisues or if it doesn't boot, do a Factory data wipe in Twrp.

    Failed to install magisk v24.0 (latest) as it requires boot image patching

    Here's what I did.
    Flashed this rom (EvoX)
    Since I couldn't find boot image of the rom, I downloaded latest stock firmware and extracted boot image from it.
    I patched the stock boot.img and flashed it over both slots.


    Result = bootloop (constant evo X evolution)



    What am I doing wrong?
    Do I need boot.img of evo X rom and then patch it ? If yes then can sometell me how do I extract boot.img from evo X rom? Or can Dev provide boot.img?



    Sorry for nuisance but I've been away from root and custom rom game for quite a long time now.

    I'm on magisk 23; I'm not seeing 24. In any event, if you have the magisk apk, change apk to zip and flash in twrp.

    I found and installed the 05/13 version 5.7 by deedwar and it is awesome. Except for traffic indicator not showing up on statusbar (same on header works) even when selected, no other bug found. Visually beautiful as well, at least to my eyes. Tons of customisations and good battery life.

    The ROM is working great.
    But flashing long exposure libs in magisk renders camera useless. I haven't tried those libs on Android 11 stock or any Android 11 custom rom so I don't know if the libs are incompatible with Android 11.

    1. Can someone help me with it? I need long exposure.

    2. Also, how to pass safety net after flashing magisk?

      EvoX might not get future updates from me because of conflicts between HavocOS and EvoX team.
