I am having issues with some apps saying looks like there is another app blocking acess to X app turn off any apps that might be drawing over other screen and try again. I have to disable drawing over apps, I have disabled all of the apps which have draw over permissions and still not working I think it might be a system bug.

I dont have that issue but had that happen on another ROM before. Most likely its one of your apps causing the issue and you'll have to do the process of elimination like I did.

Thanks for the great rom Benzo!

I haven't shown much activity on this forum, as up until now it's worked flawlessly, but I just did a clean install and updated to the latest April version.

To be specific, I had been using the 01/22 update and recently flashed the 04/09 update. I did a factory reset on the phone, and then flashed the 04/09 update. If I should have done something different, please point out.

I'm not sure how to best describe the problem, but I can give you the symptoms.

#1 - When I turn the phone off and plug it into a charge, the phone freezes. I know that it freezes because upon plugging it in, the white charge symbol comes on and stays there, I have to long press the power button to turn it back on. Now, I know you have to do that when the phone is off anyway, but I'm sure the phone is frozen as it takes longer to reboot, and it is utilizing the reboot option when you hold down the power button at anytime the phone is on, when it's held long enough.
#2 - There seems to be an issue with the top and bottom of the screen where the status bar and home buttons would appear. So for instance, there are 2 specific issues I have. When I am in a full-screen instance, like a game or watching a video, if I push on press on the top or bottom of the screen where the status bar and home buttons would appear, there is no response, and I find it hard to swipe up or down on the bottom or top to get those bars to appear as well. Also when I pull down on quick setting where it shows the 6 options to choose as circles (wifi, bluetooth, mobile data, etc.) I have to click the very top of the icon to get it to turn on or off.

Coincidentally, i had these same issues before when I first got my Pixel X and on a custom rom, although I don't know if it was Benzo Rom or a different one. These issues aren't large in comparison to other issues that could be had, but I do feel like there is a problem that could be manifested in other ways that I'm not currently aware of. all in all I'd like to see if anyone is aware of these issues and if there are any suggestions on how I might fix this.

Thanks again for the great rom! And I appreciate any help from anyone here.

Thanks,

What I'm saying is that it may no even be a draw over app causing it. I had this happen before. I had to start from scratch and install one app at a time until I figured out what it was. The app in question had nothing to do with draw over even though that was the error
I would totally agree but that is not the case I turned every app off and the issue has not gone away.

Thanks,

So, this issue I posted about has occurred on the liquid smooth rom as well. so I don't know if it's necessarily a rom issue or not, I just wonder what it could be. I've flashed the stock rom and then this rom and still got the issue.

Anybody have any idea what could be the issue?
 
Any fellow crackflashers have an old zip for last build of Benzo? Basketbuild link for this has been dead over 3 weeks that I know of. If anyone happens to have last build please hook me up.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    It won't boot OMFG!!!
    Try this if you're having trouble booting.

    I wanna use OpenGAPPS or some obscure Google Apps. How do i?
    You don't. Oreo has more security in /system/priv-app and adding apks that don't come with the zip don't get installed. It may not always be like that, but for now, it is what it is y0

    You have too many gapps in your crappy ROM!
    I try to provide the least amount possible for the setup I like. If you want to know what comes with the ROM browse my repo and look in app and priv-app

    I flashed the ROM, then Google Apps and then vendor. Why does it bootloop? Is that the right order?
    Please read the flashing instructions. Benzo comes with everything you need including the vendor image.

    I'll add more as time goes on and the same questions keep getting asked

    For people having trouble booting custom roms please read:

    Get a copy of the stock boot.img, twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img, twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip and the Benzo Rom zip.

    1. Boot into bootloader
    2. run: fastboot --slot all erase boot
    3. run: fastboot --slot all format system
    4. run: fastboot --slot all format vendor

    Go to where you extracted the stock boot image
    5. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot boot.img
    6. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img
    7. run: fastboot --set-active=a
    8. run: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    9. Then select recovery from the bootloader menu
    10. Go to wipe. Move the slider to factory reset which will wipe data, but not internal storage.
    11. Install benzorom-8.1.0-date-version-marlin.zip and twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip
    12. Reboot

    If you want to install root after boot back into recovery by rebooting and holding volume down after you hit reboot then selecting recovery from bootloader. That will take you into TWRP on slot b which is where you want to install Magisk from. I don't use SuperSU anymore so Magisk is all I know that works.

    You can get the twrp .img and .zip from their site right here.

    Note: If you decide to dirty flash and Settings ends up looking messed up. Delete /system/priv-app/Settings/Settings.apk then reflash. Not sure why it's happening to some people. Just remember to never report problems if you didn't get them on a clean flash. thanks.
