I have this same issue. I need to fingerprint unlock after plugging in my headphones for some reason. There also appears to be audio crackle since the last update that only happens on wired connection to my headphones, not Bluetooth. And it's not the headphones as they work wired with other devices.
Hm something seems to be a bit strange at least, regarding OTA, I'd agree...
Maybe OTA dont work or this new build require a clean flash.Hm something seems to be a bit strange at least, regarding OTA, I'd agree...
I was on the version from 12.07.2021 and after a reboot some time ago was told there's a new version i.e. that was the one from 17.07. I installed it, but on my phone it killed JamesDSP Magisk Audio Module. Since the changelog for 17.07. mentioned some audio-related changes, I just reverted back to 12.07. version, hoping the next Update would again work with good ol' James.
After rebooting once again back on 12.07. the Systemupdate-Notifications popped up again and showed the changelog for the 17.07 version - so absolutely what I would expect to happen.
Since I wasn't sure if OTA announcements would still work although I intentionally skipped one version, I regularly checked under the link on page one (https://sourceforge.net/projects/lmi/files/) and on the weekend suddenly saw a version from 25.07. there.
Strange thing was, that this 25.07. version was neither announced by OTA / systemupdate notification (which does seem to work at least in the 12.07. version) nor could I manage to find a changelog or other clue in this thread that thie 25.07. even exists.
Hence I didn't dare to install it yet...
I just checked that same link again and now the 25.07. version has vanished - but instead I do see one from today now (i.e. 27.07.)
I'm still on the 12.07. version and with that I indeed do get an OTA notification after reboot, I have just checked it to be sure. But strangely it still shows the changelog for the 17.07 version, not for the apparently now-current 27.07...?!? Hm...
Not sure what to make of that i.e. if this is intended behaviour since the 17.07 would indeed be the direct followup to the one I'm currently running. But I would actually expect it to always show the newest version, regardless from where you come.
Since we're already at it: is it intentional, that new versions don't get announced in this thread anymore? There used to be posts including the changelogs, so just keeping an eye on this thread was enough to get notified there is a new version and even an idea about the "highlights".
Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining at all !! On the contrary, I'm very very happy with this ROM and very thankful for the time and effort Schnedi puts into maintaining and updateing/extending it. Just adding my observations in case it helps diagnosing...
Huh, I really have been experiencing these random reboots. Gonna try the Entropy setting you recommended, I already bought FKM but couldn't find where to change the Entropy write so I downloaded the app you recommended, will update if it helpsHello everybody
Just a random observation, that may or may not be related to that high battery drain...
I'm running an app called cooltool on the Poco to be able to monitor CPU Usage, Net, I/O-Activity and such on the fly.
After clean-flashing first MIUI to get the correct firmware and then the ROM and Magisk I noticed that, after starting the Phone and giving it some time to settle, the CPU Usage basically drops to 0 - 1%.
But then -and even when leaving it just sitting on the desk doing nothing- after something like 15 - 30 minutes or even longer, suddenly CPU usage goes up to around 5 - 7% and stays there apparently forever (or till reboot - see below).
I tried to hunt down the App that was causing this but couldn't identify any...
(Not a big surprise since the phone basically had just Derp itself and some small system tools on it but none ot the "real apps" i use regularly on my daily driver. I'm still in the process of switching to the Poco you see... )
The funny part is:
I was also playing around with some kernel-settings via Smartpack Kerned Editor. Smartpack has a topic called "Entropy" in the left side-menu and when I increased "write" to the max of 4096 (which helped my old phones snappiness a huge lot) the CPU increase on the Poco happened way earlier than before, like 2 - 3 minutes after start and login instead of 15+. So that made my quite curious...
Hence I DEcreased write to 512 with the effect that Smartpack never reported "100% Available" any more as it was doing before
--> AND the CPU usage seems to stay at the initial low 0 - 1% now !!
I'm not sure about the following, but I also got some strange reboots with the high entropy setting. Strange because they happened when the phone was just sitting idle on the desk - and out of the blue I suddenly see the Yellow Poco screen appear and the thing reboots... Without any obvious reason and even withouot touching it at all.
Actually I got such reboots even before I started fiddling with kernel settings. The difference was, without fiddling reboots happened after 24+ hours whereas with fiddlling substantially earlier.
So my "wild guess into the blue" at the moment is, that when "Entropy availability" gets to 100% something goes wrong and in the end causes the Poco to restart.
--> Interestingly since I decreased Entropy to 512 I haven't had a single of those reboots any more.
Please keep in mind, that all this may have just been a totally weird coincidence, too and I may be on the completely wrong track here...
But as it is quite easy to change that setting (Smartpack is free on the PlayStore) it may be worth a try to decrease entropy on your devices and see if it changes anything at all...
Good luck !!
P.S: A huge thanks to Schnedi for sharing and maintaining this great ROM. I especially love the fact that it comes with all customization options you could possibly ask for - but with just the most basic set of Apps, so you can decide for yourelf which browser, calendar etc you'd like to use and don't duplicate a bunch of AOSP-Default Apps. Really great work and the 27.06. build seems very stably on my device now that I've decreased entropy a bit more than default of around 800.
Thank you very much, I hope you keep this alive for a long time.
