I have an issues with the notifications.
Sometimes the notification header gets transparent. Can't find any option to disable it.
I seems that is in combination with the evolver settings - theme - quick settings color. When change the values to 0 it is the effect I get.


The effect looks like this: blue marked.
Sometimes the notification is total transparent.



I am on the latest June version but it was also in the May version

Thanks for help

Would it be possible to add "disable MAC randomization" toggle or something like that? I cant connect to my Wi-Fi with this ROM because of a MAC filter.

hola, tengo la rom DotOS, ¿tengo que instalar la rom MIUI global y luego instalar la Evolution X?
ENG: First of all, this is an english-only speaking forum. You have to write in english so everyone can understand you and help you out. You could use Google Translate, if you like it. Thank you.
Now, about your question, it depends on what MIUI firmware version you are. If you're on MIUI 12 just flash the rom.

ESP: Primero que todo, este es un foro de habla inglesa. Tienes que escribir en inglés para que todos puedan entenderte y ayudarte. Podrías usar Google Traductor, si quieres. Gracias.
Ahora, con respecto a tu pregunta, depende de la versión de firmware MIUI que estés usando. Si estás en MIUI 12 solo flashea la rom.

Is the latest 5.8 a good daily driver?
I am still on the 4.6. I tried some versions after this one but every other version had small little annoying bugs.

EDIT: flashed following the instructions. No bugs at all. Decent battery life. Stable release (5.8). No lags, no stuttering, no random reboots.
An overall solid rom for a daily driver.

does anyone know if the sd card bug (phone reboots when you transfer large files to sd card) is still present in 5.8?
the rom is great but the bug is really annoying.

I have just updated to evolution_lavender-ota-rq3a.210805.001.a1-08111436-unsigned by flashing it from recovery (orangefox). I have also flashed Magisk v23 and rebooted. The rom seems ok, but magisk does not work. It fails granting root permissions. Even magisk itself does not get root permissions. Is there a way to fix this?...

I removed magisk by flashing uninstall.zip and reinstalled it. Now it is working!

Does anybody know how to reset status bar customizations (header image) from recovery (like deleting its file) because the status bar is glitching my lock screen and I can't access phone.
I'm using orange fox
