To be honest, I use Vanced YT and I have no crashes or lags. The latest build looks good to me and system crashes are fixed. You should try doing a clean install (wiping data/or format it if you stay encrypted).

Did you dirty flash, or did a fresh install?
I went back on previous builds because the freezing keeps coming, with or without magisk.
first i dirty flashed over previous update then i thought clean flash would of helped but issues presisted , without magisk or any other mods

i gotta mention this issues are very rare

So I migrated to EvolutionX rom from Pixel Experiance, and so far its good, it has more customization then PE
but one thing is not giving me peace.
The Status bar quick action are pure black but the notification below it are ugly grey, I can't seem to find customs options for it, is there a way to make it all pure black?

I did look all the options and can't find it
btw, the HDR confusing implementation from Xiaomi on dipper makes unable to get Youtube HDR properly (other then Stock) on Custom Roms can't be solved I suppose? I did test couple of roms from 10,11 and every is washed out, same goes for Netflix and DRM missing.

It is what it is and we need to live with that on our Mi 8 right?

And One more question, about Always on Display, as it works nice but there is missing scheduler, with the time options for it automatic turn on/off on time, as its useless over night and eat battery massivly.

Thank you for developing a Rom for this "old" device.
I'm a business photographer and i can't find any options for color spaces or natural colors.
The colors are highly oversaturated what is very problematic for judging images.
I'm coming from The Pixel Rom which had an option for that. If i remember right Lineage even had options to choose beteen different color spaces like dci-p3 and sRGB.
There is the possibility to reduce channel brightness under "live display" in this rom, but that's not what i need. It just makes colors darker and does not reduce saturation.
Colors reminding me of a candy shop here ;-)
Can you do something against this? Would highly appreciate that.

1st , After Restart,, it tooks ages to reconnect to ISP. ( aproximatelly, 1minute to establish the connection).
2nd, Battery impact is the pain in the ass..it tooks 1h:47min to hit 75% of full battery charged..
Its logical.,.becaute I had the same experience on Havoc custom ROM, before.

This Evolution X is , literally, copy/paste of Havoc in back days...
Its not bad ROM, but dont expect some ultra features...

Explain how is Evolution X copy-paste of Havoc?
Evolution X literally has features from Pixel than havoc never had, the way I see it is Havoc was adding whatever feature existed, Evolution X doesn't

Advanced features, all advanced settings ..etc..
Nevertheless, I appreciate your work. I'm not botching. Battery drain is something I already expected,because there is so many advanced options and makes up ..
Please, fix some major issues I (and other users) already refered to..
Cheers

Everyone reply to this with the issues you are having so I can take a look into them. Regarding WhatsApp calls, a user in telegram has it working fine so I think it could be only happening to the one user here. I recommend that you try flashing latest global FW as it may fixed some issues. Thanks for using Evolution X.
