    Ok, I know I've said this before, and I'm going to seriously regret saying it again, but I just can't help myself. If you want a Dev to take your bug report seriously, it needs to be reproducible by the Dev. Simply saying "I installed this ROM, plus a ton of apps, changed a bunch of settings, and now my battery life is ****" does not help anyone. If you want them to take the report seriously, it needs to be "I installed a fresh ROM, restored nothing, installed nothing and changed this one setting, found the battery life was noticeably shortened. Turned that setting back off and verified that battery life was back to normal." That kind of report is likely to get some action, the previous one very likely to be ignored. These guys are all volunteers who give their time away for free to help fix googles/oplus/qualcoms **** for us ungrateful end users. If you're gonna winge about the ROM, at least do it constructively :p
    Anyone having issues with pixel launcher since last update. The weather widget is not opening to full forecast and the search bar isn't working-only searching installed apps.
    Issues with pixel launcher have already been fixed. Will be available on the next release.
    The latest build does not work OTA.
    My version: evolution_instantnoodle-ota-td1a.221105.001-11191405-unsigned.

    I have some problem even on op8p

    Same here OP8.
    Verification failed after download OTA


    OTA failed verification, decided to sideload. Phone now bootloops in recovery mode.

    See if I can't sort this out after work I guess...

    On instancenoodle and instantnoodlep, this new update requires data format.
    It's been announced on Telegram but not on xda apprently....
    Would you mind explaining a little further how to get magisk and root with evolution x just installed?? i dont want to get my phone bricked

    Sideload (using with Evolution custom rom provided Recovery) and the
    ADB sideload command

    Once in Recovery and using Sideload as OP lays out in the same way to flash this rom.
    • Boot the phone in recovery and connected to a computer using the ADB commands
    • Once in Recovery go to Sideload option
    • adb devices (verify device is connected) from the computer
    • adb sideload Magisk-v25.2.zip (keep root) from the computer

    The Magisk file is the same as the apk file just changing the extension to .zip

    Once done reboot and install the Magisk app
    I use this rom since August on my Oneplus 8 Pro and i never had battery drain issues. I might be wrong, but reading this thread, the most of the drain are caused by differrent tweaks or settings, and not by the rom.
    But the setting is in the rom, so it's still caused by the rom!

    1. HDMI out
    2. Idk, you tell me



    First Time Install / Clean Flash (8 & 8 Pro)
    1. Be on any version of OOS12 (required firmware is shipped with Evolution X for these devices)
    2. Download vbmeta, recovery, and rom for your device from here (please make sure that you don't flash instantnoodlep (8 Pro) on instantnoodle (8) else you will hardbrick your device)
    3. Reboot to bootloader
    4. fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot recovery
    5. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB (if you experience no touch in recovery, then use the vol & pwr keys. This is a sign of you being on an early version of OOS12. The required firmware will be flashed during installation of the ROM.)
    6. adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    7. Format data, reboot to system & #KeepEvolving

    First Time Install / Clean Flash (8T & 9R)
    1. Be on the latest OOS 12 (C36)
    2. Download copy_partitions, vbmeta, recovery, and rom for your device from here
    3. Reboot to bootloader
    4. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot reboot recovery
    5. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB
    6. adb sideload copy_partitions.zip (press "yes" when signature verification fails) and then reboot to recovery
    7. Repeat step 5 and then adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    8. Format data, reboot to system & #KeepEvolving

    Update / Dirty Flash
    1. Reboot to recovery
    2. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB
    3. adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    4. Reboot to system & #KeepEvolving


    1. Check for update. If available, select "Download and install" (approx 10-15 min)
    2. Reboot & #KeepEvolving


    Updates are out!

    If coming from the previous 09/16/2022 release, OTA will work. For anyone who hasn't updated to that build, you will need to use the new recovery with support for erofs as pointed out here in order to flash the latest build.

    Hey everyone,

    Just dropping by here to clean the thread and remind everyone to remain calm and respect the developers. Developers do the development in their free time and are not committed to anything. Let's appreciate the work done and help each other as a community. Also, take some time to read and follow the forum rules, especially:

    2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Please don't direct profanity, sexually explicit language or other offensive content toward Members or their work. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.

    2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: XDA is about sharing and this does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) or rudeness. Flaming or posting with a lack of respect is unacceptable. Treat new members in the manner in which you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instructions when you can, showing them respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.

    2.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and / or religious discussions: XDA is a discussion forum about certain mobile phones. Mobile phones are not racial, political, religious or personally offensive and therefore, none of these types of discussions are permitted on XDA.
