Latest DotOS is crap. The colors of the curtain are not normally regulated, you cannot make it transparent, plus the curtain itself often does not open completely (the charge, date, time are cut off). I do not recommend it.

I've made a switch from stock MiUI to DotOS. Best rom I've tried so far, quite stable and smooth, would recommend for daily usage.

In my opinion DotOS is most unique and the better choice compared to other AOSP based custom roms, mainly because of its dynamic coloring theme engine, which mimics upcoming Android 12 theming as seen on Dev preview, while the rest all feels like duplicates with different names. It's also not bloated with severely outdated customization features.

However there is one major issue along with a few smaller ones I hope would be fixed and included in the next update(s):

The major issue: heavy stutter refresh rate, the display frequently get stuck at low framerate (~10 fps/hz ?), this last for a few seconds then return to normal. It happens randomly no mater which min-max refresh rate settings i use.

Small issues and feature request:

- There's a ~1 second delay when waking up the phone from sleep, regardless of how it was woken (button press, fingerprint, screen double tap, etc,...).

- Lockscreen clock sometime doesn't update.

- An option to manage/disable ambient display (since all apollo models doesn't use amoled panel, it's annoying when used with double tap to wake).

- Add raise (lift) to wake.

- Some UI elements have white text on white background (the spell checking suggestions dialog is most noticable).

- A more detailed network traffic meter. Currently it doesn't display decimal value when traffic speed is =1MB/s and higher.

I am also experiencing the 1s delay when unlocking the phone. To the devs, please let me know whether you need logs for this problem

Hi,
FYI I installed NusantaraProject ROM yesterday and also noticed this delay. I assume this is coming from the AOSP common base to those 2 ROMs
EDIT: That is the "prevent accidental wake up" option in "Display" settings which delays the screen wake-up

Hi,
Having issues with Nusantara ROM, I decided to test this ROM also (Vanilla flavour).
Below is a personal feedback of the things I tested, liked or not, and/or in comparison with the other ROM
- (personal opinion) I do not like the way customization menu is : that is good looking but not efficient (time to read the items), time to pick the desired setting, some settings missing vs other ROMs (date format), etc
- quick tiles : less tiles available (sync, etc)

- Afwall+ works fine (does not with Nusantara)
- the scrolling (refresh set to 120Hz) in the menus is sometimes saccaded
- delay for screen wake up (did find the "prevent accidental wake up" setting which is causing the delay on the other rom)
- as on Nusantara : cannot allow Google Play services to access SMS & Call log : probably an issue from the AOSP ?

As a quick sumary I would tell there is less issues with this ROM than with the Nusantara at this time, but the look & feel does not suit me.
I am going to test other ROMs too.
My goal in giving this feedback is to be constructive, I hope you will take it this way. :)
