Apologies for the silly question but do you only need to flash the ROM or do you need to flash firmware first? Currently using pixel experience as the ROM was all you needed. This looks great but the way!
No need to flash firmware first, I went straight from crdroid and it works, but don't forget to wipe dalvik, cache, and data before flashing project elixir. Also format data. Here's a guide: https://github.com/ProjectElixir-Devices/Wiki/blob/snow/surya.md

Installed this yesterday and overall I'm loving it but one thing is annoying me: is there a way to add the battery percentage to the icon? Thanks in advance!
Great ROM,higly recommended,and seem to be the best choice at the moment for me,to run A12. Everything works as expected.GCam included and no problems to install ANXCamera. (I use v 1.5). One thing to consider is that it's discontinued at the moment,for some reason.

I'm having issue with bluetooth headphones; two that have tried have shownthe com.android.bluetooth has stopped working when receiving calls at the same time as I'm listening to music. Essentially, the error means I have to take my headphones off and answer the call normally rather than through the headphones. I didn't have this issue with other ROMS. I've tried forgetting the headphones and pairing again; wiping bluetooth cache and storage without success.

Any ideas?

    NOTE: It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup (or with any backup/restore app) as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug, restoring regular apps is fine. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.

    Thanks man it worked just one more thing, I'm getting the "speech services keeps stopping", is it normal?
    Hey, I would like to try this rom but i can't flash it and don't know why.

    First I came from another ROM (Android 12), I followed the guide in GitHub step by step but after I reboot to system it just reboots to recovery over and over so I tried to do it with the Stock Rom (MIUI 12.5 Global Android 11) but just keep happening the same. I don't know why, hope anyone can help me :(.

    I have to say that TWRP shows this message after reboot to recovery:
    "Android Rescue Party trigger! Possible solutions?
    1. Wipe cache, and/or
    2. Format data, and/or
    3. Clean flash your ROM.

    The reported problem is:
    '--reason=init_user0_failed' "

    Already did the 3 options so i don't know what to do now.
    hay flash this file after falsh rom and format data Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_03.04.2020.zip
    anyone has custom recovery for surya phone ?
    i can't find one in official TWRP website.
    there is one on https://github.com/ProjectElixir-Devices/Wiki/blob/snow/surya.md
