Been using the latest build for a while now and its really fun to use and almost bug free imo. Just this one thing has been bothering me that you can't post stories on Instagram longer than 15 seconds. It would upload the first 15 seconds and the rest would fail to upload. Was on PE12 before and it works perfectly there. Would like you to look into this issue please. Thank you!
Could you record some logs while you try to reproduce that issue?

Also, try to set gpu renderer to opengl (skia) in the developers settings to see if it fix the problem

Fingerprint: not working in apps?

I have fingerprint registered in setting and it's normally working but sometimes it's won't recognize my fingers, it's not so smooth as on the same phone erlier on crdroid 7.x.

But in external apps like keepass4android and others i cannot setup it to unlock the apps: the app shows the dialog to setup the fingerprint but then each time i see only an axclamation mark on the fingerprint field when trying to setup it.
Anyone similar issues?

Just register your "main finger" two times.

Register the same finger multiple times
You can also change the pressed color in settings->The evolver->Lock screen->UDFPS settings->UDFPS pressed color

Fingerprint: not working in apps

Thanks, yes i had already change the color and registered the same finger several times bebefore this my posting here, because i had some issuer with registering/recognizing by the system.

But the issue with external apps was diferent one, and i first did not grasp what the issue was and only now found out :

the apps show the fingerprint field/circle for setting up at a wrong position, about 1cm below the the field of the system, so that when pressing on there does not have any effect, and an red axclamation mark appears.

Only when pressing the finger about 1cm above it the normal lighting green circle of the system appeas and the fingerprint gets immediately recognized by the app.


Thanks a lot for your help!

Dirty flashed fine this morning, but now looking into magisk 24.1. has anyone updated to this version yet? I've always flashed the zip using TWRP but the docs suggest this is now deprecated. How are others rooting? Would I need to patch the boot.img after every dirty flash?

Careful with Magisk and its Zygisk feature. I enabled Zygisk and option "Enforce denylist" and rebooted. From that time my phone was in bootloop. I tried to uninstall Magisk, dirty reflash ROM but nothing worked. I had to wipe and cleanflash ROM. :/

Thanks for the heads up @Bugscze ... this is why i posted (y) I'll stay unrooted for now and maybe look at magisk alternatives.

Hello Guys, XDA team. sorry but I couldn't find the forum about AndroidAuto. I am a simple Xiaomi smartphone user. I don't have the skills to make flash rooms. I have a problem now with the Mi9. that since the last official update (the system provides an update for download and I accept and tlm updates) that passed to MiUi 12.0.5.0 (QFAEUXM) of 2021-04-01 Problem: the system does not open the AndroidAuto or communicate with my MMI from my car. I have already installed other Xiaomis without problems (Note8, 10T etc) and they all work fine with the My MMi AA, they phones all already have MiUi 12.5.3/7.
I need AA to do my jobs with the car with Navigator and Maps.
No MiUi update for Mi9 is available. I would appreciate the possible help to update the Mi9 without doing Flashs room because I don't know how to do it. Thanks

It's not really the right place to ask that, you'd better ask in the questions/ answers forum

    Changelog for latest (01/27/2022)

    I decided to make a last build for this month. I cleaned and reworked the device tree, and dropped some stuff that didn't work properly.
    Concerning the battery consumption, I think It's a little bit better than in the previous build (I'll wait for your opinion).

    Also, I will ask for official maintainership, because I think that EvoX for Cepheus is ready to be officially maintained. So official maintainership may arrive in the future...

    Please note that DFE (Disable force encryption) is required for now
    Also, if you encounter some issues after dirty flashing the new build, please first try to clean flash.

    Please don't try to dirty flash over an Android 11 build, do a clean flash instead to avoid the problems.

    Device changes:
    ==============================
    • Device tree cleaned and reworked
    • Nuke dc dimming
    • Include back AOSP camera instead of GraphenOS camera
    ------------------------------
    ROM changes:
    ==============================
    • Add repainter service for rom integration
    • add new fod icons
    • Add new Acherus Icon pack
    • PixelPropsUtils: Remove spoof from Google AR Core to prevent crashing on non Pixel devices
    • Don't download official Google Camera on non Pixel devices
    • Reorganize some settings menus
    • Include more font overlays
    • Add seekbar for left/right statusbar paddings
    • audio: Discard QTI only codecs when AOSP BT stack is in use
    • Switch FOD icons format to webp

    Ok, I'll see what can I do to fix that battery drain issue

    It would be great if this excellent Rome receives all upcoming updates and security patches on a regular basis ...
    I'm waiting for the January security patches before publishing a new build (still not released for Pixel 6 Pro)
