Any video or audio keeps stopping for a second or two and starts again.
Anyone else have this issue?
Edit 1: Just thinking I just flashed over arrow os 12.
Then I flashed the boot, vendor and the ROM zip.
Perhaps I did that wrong some how.

Edit 2: I just deleted everything and flashed again and it's perfect.

I am on casanova mimax (a11), you think just flashing rom zip from twrp and then rebooting and formating data would work ?
I've had bad experiences from fastboot flashes / sideloads and would like to sitck to twrp if possible. did someone actually flashed this rom from twrp coming from a miui rom ?

Edit : FYI, I've managed to install from twrp (dunno if it was vasi or nebrassy) by wiping data, installgin from usb otg, wiping data again (never know if it is best before or after) and rebooting. First boot was really fast, and initial setup went great restoring my google backup from yesterday made from miui. just a few stuff not working for me like double pressing power button to launch camera. Also no face unlock, and I didn't find how to remove navigation pill at the bottom of the screen (advice would be appreciated).
Also phone storage is not detected under windows 10 whereas it was with previous miui rom.
Otherwise rom is reeeeally smooth and pleasant to use !

    This is totally unacceptable @rounak1619 ! You have logged in few days ago and haven't responded to any of the issues that these users are giving to you. Hard bricking to EDL is by far the worst thing. I don't know what you did with the sources, but the least you could do is remove the links and close the thread.

    For all the users out there, please check the sources before downloading a ROM. Make sure they are trustworthy for your device.

    Just wondering, can you tell me the exact same steps to reproduce the error ?
    And what do you mean by "update" ?
    Sometimes the window pop up, that your pixel has been updated, and it gives you option to restart. If you click on it, you´re done. Also notifications were showing, but it didn´t do anything when I clicked on it. I think the update doesn´t exist, maybe the phone thinks it´s Pixel 5
    2
    my device got bricked and I had to pay $25 to flash on edl mode. I love this ROM though. I'm thinking of reinstalling it but not to mess with update notifications.
    I had the update notification about 5 times, I remember I just clicked cancel or ignore may be twice. I didn't accept the update notification because I always wait to see the feedback before installing it. only with a simple restart, my phone bricked. don't install it
    2
    My phone also hard bricked with a simple restart, I never even clicked the update notification. The MOD EDIT: Content Removed guy on telegram fixed it, so props to him and his solid service.

    I can never recommend this ROM due to this experience, honestly bugs like this are why custom ROMs have such negative connotations in more mainstream parts of the internet. If this hard brick glitch had happened while I was travelling or when I was in an emergency.... In any case I've reflashed Xiaomi.eu ROM and if I want a pixel experience I'll just buy myself a pixel lol. I'm not risking this again.

    I have been using this ROM for 2 weeks and this is my feedback:

    BUGS:

    • Battery drain when the phone is locked is the biggest issue for me, I woke up losing 40% of battery. So something isn´t right.
    • POCO F3 has power button lower than pixel, so the lock and ulock animation is wrong
    • I am missing an option to unlock the phone with fingerprint, only when I press the button. The fingerprint sensor is too fast and when I´m putting my phone into the pocket I end up unlocking the phone. And we already know that this phone has absolutely ****tiest proximity sensor. I just can´t use my phone like that, I had to remove the fingerprint from my phone, which is also annoying because some of my apps use fingerprint sensor.
    • It is almost impossible to unlock the phone with PIN/gesture when I have many notification, I just can´t swipe up
    • Difficult to turn on/off mobile data from notification slider
    • When I change wallpaper, some widgets and apps don´t change the color right away. Some widgets don´t change at all
    Overall feeling
    • The phone is smoother than on any MIUI ROM ever. The animations don´t lag, everything is 120Hz and so smooth. I don´t want to use MIUI in near future. I just hope that those bugs will be removed. The biggest issue is the battery drain and fingerprint unlock feature. Personally I would wait for battery drain fix, before installing this ROM.
    Questions
    • How can I overcome my unlocking issue? I just have to use gesture like I have cheap android phone from 2014. Possibly face unlock? I am missing face unlock on google smart lock ( I don´t care about that 2D scan is not safe)
    • How do I update to the latest ROM when it comes out?
