beautiful firmware, but there are some serious bugs. screen to freeze on reboot when the bluetooth device is connected. the interface lags a lot when you watch vanced YouTube.and 60% charge per night, with always on, that's a lot

Hi,
I would like to say a big thank you to

manuelbianco (y) and the Descendant team for this great rom,​

after trying many other roms, yours stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Like most users, i was searching for a fast, stable and refined rom with the latest security patches,

the Descendant rom nailed it (y) .

I have not found any bugs, but then i don`t use all the bells and whistles that my phone has to offer.

After many dirty flashes of different roms over the Xiaomi.eu A12 rom, i decided to start from a clean install.

Pre-install notes,

With my Bootloader already unlocked,
I copied all the files below, (except Xiaomi.eu V12 rom & TWRP fastboot toolkit) onto a USB memory stick and installed them via a OTG adaptor.

To enter Fastboot mode, hold down the Volume down & power buttons together.

How i installed the rom

1. I started with a clean install of the Xiaomi.eu V12, via Fastboot,
Choosing: windows fastboot first install with data format.Bat,

1a. I installed Xiaomi.eu V12 rom by putting my F3 into Fastboot mode
and running the .bat file above using my PC

2. Reboot the F3 into Fastboot mode and using a PC, install TWRP fastboot toolkit (FIXED)

3. install this Great Rom descendant_alioth-12.0-20211223-0951-RELEASE.zip

4. install OrangeFox recovery,

5. After OFox rebooted into recovery, i installed Magisk-v23.0

Safety net passes without Magisk, if you don`t require Root.

6. in Orangefox, i formatted data, by typing YES and re-booted.

7. after the initial start up and installing all my apps,
i then installed the brilliant Advanced Charging Controller (ACCA) ,

This rom is now my daily driver and for anyone wanting to know how fast this rom is, my AnTuTu score is 709661

Other AnTuTu scores were,
Arrow O/S A12, 679090,
Xiaomi.eu V12-12, 661033,

My Poco F3 is the 8gb/256gb EU version,

many thanks again (y) (y) (y) (y),

Johnr64.

@manuelbianco
one more question about the installation

you should make FORMAT DATA at the beginning....
But after that I have no connection to the PC. How should I now get the FW u the ROM to flash on the phone?

Hi I tried to Format data via TWRP and Orange fox but i kept having a error,

installing Xiaomi.eu V12 rom in Fastboot mode and installed using the .bat file via my PC, worked a treat,

cheers.

Never done this. Time to try.....
One thing i like especially with this rom compared to the Xiaomi.eu V12 is, i have my Samsung watch activated as a Trusted device and no more lock screen errors,
there are so many nice touches in this rom, it would take me all evening to list them,

just try this rom,

it`s a beast,

    Hi @johnr64, can you give review on Descendant default camera? is it ok compared to POCO default camera? (no lag, no crash, suitable for daily use?) Thanks!
    Hi,
    I only had the official miui rom for a week or so, while i was waiting for my bootloader to be unlocked.

    I use One s10 camera on a daily bases, as I like the gallery feature found on Samsung phones,

    I vaguely remember a force close on one of my Custom roms caused by a camera app, that was a long time ago.

    I am now on the forth update of the great rom and not really had any issues with my camera, apart from One s10 camera can sometimes not display the camera image when opening the app, i overcome this by selecting another lenses aspect, then all is working as i should.

    I`m not a fan of Miui rom due to the fact that i use my Samsung watch as a trusted device and that miui roms will only except Xiaomi devices as a trusted device,

    I also use ACCA to manage my battery charge cycles and this requires Root access, i've had my F3 for 6 months and the battery is still at 96% capacity:).

    Sorry i`m not much help regarding the camera, as i updated to build 2019 over my previous 2218 build, i didn`t clean up my camera apps and i have three camera apps installed, i have tried them all and none of them cause a force close and they are all working OK,

    I hope you enjoy this GREAT rom as much as i do(y)(y)(y)
