Can anyone tell me if there are any bugs or defects in this rom?
Fairly stable, but there are random UI bugs and crashes, but even they aren't really common or annoying.
As for performance, I'm surprised by how optimised this ROM/A11 is. Can't speak for gaming, but multitasking is much much better.
Depends on which ROM you're coming from, this one doesn't have much customisation..

IDK it's a bug or something, but suddenly incoming calls have stopped showing up, anyone else facing the same issue?

Network related issue; fixed by switching SIM.

ROM seems very smooth, no WPS option to connect to WiFi. I really like this rom, only that WPS option missing for me. I might have to go back to my MIUI 11 rom as I need the dual apps option, very important for me.

very nice rom though @aseelpsathar, if you can add wps and dual apps for this in future updates i'll stick with it. Keep up the good work.
What kernel are you using? I'm using dark arges 4.9.253 and I feel it's not really smooth and stable

hello guys and girls.
thank you dev and everyone else involved in the development,
Im thinking about flashing this rom on my device so i was hoping if i could get some suggestions from all people here, since its always better to do some R&D before flashing.
I want to know is there any precaution to take, it'll be good if some one can provide me the steps to flash this rom.
Which recovery, firmware version, gapps etc.
thanks a lot eveyone.

Good, stable ROM, can't say if you should install it considering the dev will probably step down
(broke his vince).

Havoc 4, there's a thread already here on XDA. It's stable amd everything works great, the features are few but it's normal since we're on the first releases. Only issue is that it's not official, the official "maintainer" has been away for like 3 months now.
Thanks sar. Havoc is awesome; used A10 for long time on Havoc. I guess I'll wait out until it's polished. And currently DotOS is working well for me.

    So just installed this today and using it after 6 hours (only) -
    1. The rom on it's own is beta-ish, in terms of UI especially, you'd come across a few bugs/glitches. Not sure if that's due to A11 or the rom.
    2. UI is definitely a step down on A11. It does much less occupyin basically the same amount of space (A11 nitpick, not rom's)
    3. There are some cool features on A11, but not very big game changing. Basically it's 10.2 - I'd think A12 will be much more "updated"
    4. Back to rom, it's stable, performance is good enough (not sure what to expect of such an old device as vince). Can't speak for battery backup (yet)

    tl;dr interesting rom, very less customisation options (coming from Havoc), UI is minimal (A11), and I'm gonna stick with it.

    Also, good job devs (y)
    Thank you!
