Ok, i think that the rom is settled now, so i can give a little review.

First of all, i have to say that this is my first A12 rom. I was a long time on CrDroid and i loved it.

I had difficulties since i flashed EX, but all of them i managed to get rid of. There should be mentioned wifi fix rar in install instructions. I had a problem with extremely fast draining of battery, which is now gone after the rom settled. There is a little more sensitive fingerprint and i have to add more scans of the same finger to get it work everytime i need to open my phone. The rom is fast and smooth. I really do miss the function when i press all three buttons and there is a part screenshot (not just full screen screenshot). Every app is working, even PIA, Adblock, smartbanking, V4A. So far so good and i hope that more updates will come!
Thank you for your great work (and sorry for my english - not native speaking)

Changelog for latest (01/21/2022)

I just published a second build for this month. There are some changes on the rom side, and some new features like the FOD icons and animations that I think you'll like. Also, Monet should be fixed now.

what the problem is I don't know, but after the last update you made available my battery life has decreased considerably ... I have now removed the advanced charging controllers software to see if that is not the problem.

    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)
