Users of this ROM, how is the idle battery life?

Every 12.5 Custom ROM I try is draining battery even with a custom kernel.

I'm not sure what you consider "non-draining", but I'm getting 48h+ battery life (with ~7h SOT) on one charging... but on PE, stock kernel
With 12.0 Custom Roms: ~4 days battery life (80% charge)
With 12.5 Custom Roms: ~2 days battery life (80% charge)

So my battery life halved from 12.0 to 12.5.

If you wat bb and not play game. Try 12fw based custom roms + QK L Proton + EAS. Last time i can reach 15h SOT /100 with play some normal game (Tft), Youtube, Telegram, music. And if you want play game, just dirty flash QK N for performance then flash L again for bb. Lastest QK supported new selfie cam.

Why spend that much? Just join Telegram, they have free unbrick method and you can ask if you have errors. Even you ask other to help you, dont need spend that much. Free or just 5-10$ they will help you online. And if you can learn something from that, you can do it by yourself.

Sorry for a noob question.
I was on stock MIUI 11 Android 9, then I flashed Crdroid 7.2 (CFW ROM).
Now it shows a new update 7.11.
Can I dirty flash it or it will broke something?
I have TWRP 3.4.0_10-Metadata installed on it.
I can not flash stock MIUI 12.5 because of locked Mi account.
Thank you for answer.

This is offical rom based on 12.5fw (step need miui 12.5.x). So i think you cant dirty flash it. And you have some ways to flash stock. You can flash stock then Force turn off by press and go in Fastboot when Miui show up, you dont need to finish boot into Miui setting. Or you can edit Flash_all file delete flash system code. Or flash by Sp flash tool. Many options without boot in Miui.

Well, I've installed this and now I have to wait around a week with normal usage to see how the battery drain goes.

Time will tell.

It's using a recent kernel (4.14.250) so that's a plus.

Don't dirty flash!

You're on CFW and your recovery is quite old.

You'll risk a hard brick.

So the right steps for me are:

1. Flash MIUI 12.5.3 via fastboot.
2. Reboot to fastboot again (because of locked Mi account) and flash recovery file from OP.
3. Reboot to recovery and flash Crdroid.
4. Format data.
5. Reboot to system.

Am I right?

I've never had issues with a locked Mi Account, but below are the steps I used:
  1. Boot to fastboot mode;
  2. Flash MIUI 12.5.1 Fastboot ROM (global doesn't have a Fastboot 12.5.3 yet, only recovery);
  3. Boot to fastboot mode;
  4. Flash BRP3.5.2v3.0 (I extracted recovery.img from the zip and used that);
  5. Boot to recovery;
  6. Wipe system, dalvik, cache and vendor (I think this is unnecessary because I flashed MIUI 12.5.1; did it anyway);
  7. Format data (I think this is unnecessary because I flashed MIUI 12.5.1; did it anyway);
  8. Flash crDroid;
  9. Flash Open GApps (I used the latest arm64-11 nano; it took a while to flash but it worked);
  10. Reboot to system;
  11. Install the Magisk v23.0 apk;
  12. Boot to recovery;
  13. Flash the Magisk v23.0 zip (flashing the apk should also work; same file);
  14. Boot to system;
  15. Check the Magisk app if root is installed (it is).
I think Kirasu2080 is correct. You can ignore setting up MIUI therefore no Mi Account issue.

Thank you so much for a detailed guide. I do not have time to flash it today, but I hope it will all work just fine. And I hope it will not get bricked or something like that.

1/Check your steps again. Why Wipe after flash rom?
2/It maybe end with format error because of encryption.

1. Go in Fastboot mode, flash Miui 12.5.x fastboot rom (any kind but begonia recommend)
2. Go in Fastboot mode, download and flash Brp 3.5.2 v3.0 by run file 1.Flash...bat, it will automatically reboot in twrp.
3. Wipe>Advanced Wipe>Dalvik, Cache, System, Data, Vendor. Reboot>Recovery.
4. Wipe>Format data>yes. Reboot>Recovery.
(If you dont have encryption Format data error, just wipe in step 3 and go direct to step 5)
(If encryption error still cant fix, go in Fastboot and use command "fastboot -w")
5. Install>Flash custom rom.
6. Install>Flash Gapps (optional)
7. Advanced>Disable ForceEncryption (optional)
8. Wipe>Format data>yes>Reboot system.
If you need Magisk:
9. Go in Twrp. Advanced>Magisk install>Reboot system.
If you have bootloop after flash Magisk:
10. Go in twrp. Advanced>Patch vbmeta>Reboot system.

    Hello,

    Does anyone know if this rom runs any leaner than pixel experience? I'm currently running latest PE, and while battery life is good, the system feels a bit sluggish and bogged down. Maybe too much for G90T?
