Read the whole OP! Be respectful to each other and don't ask for ETAs, it's considered as being rude!

I guess there is nothing wrong in reading facts!

-Why no "Incremental/Delta updates" Support?
->The updates we provide monthly are heavily changed and modified than the previous builds. New stuff is merged and added. So we don't provide incremental updates and recommend a clean flash.

-How do I root this ROM?
->We recommend Magisk

-Does this ROM Support Substratum?
->Google killed Substratum support in Pie. You can use it, however, you need to be rooted. We don't support rootless Substratum.

-Which Gapps are recommended?
->OpenGapps and BitGappps

-Will this ROM relock the bootloader?
->No.

-What about XPOSED?
->XPOSED is still in the beta stage. We like Xposed but it messes up with the system so before giving any bug reports make sure you have Xposed uninstalled.

-When Will Be the Next Update?
->No ETAs, please. ROM Will be updated whenever the new build is ready by your maintainer. We generally provide monthly updates with the latest security patches and new features.

-Adaway is not working :(
->Download it from here Adaway

-SElinux Linux mode changer app is not working nor Busy Box installer app is working.
->Everything is good with the sources. You should try other things first and then contact your maintainer.

thanks for the reply, but since it was bootlooping, i replaced the patched boot. img with the original boot. img....... because of which i seem to have lost twrp recovery!!!
Now i can't boot into recovery!!!
Any help would be much appreciated....
you have 2 x issues:
(1) bootlooping
(2) getting into Recovery

you've solved issue # (1),
so now, to get into Recovery,
i would suggest:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.2.x.x-xxx.img
( try TWRP 3.2.0 first )

and then try
Code:
fastboot reboot recovery
which instructs your phone to reboot into recovery

I followed a longer method by installing asus factory image using flashallAFT.bat then updating to latest asus firmware & now im back on AEX rom (android 11) with twrp recovery (3.4.0 by mauronofrio).
But magisk app shows ramdisk:no... so that means magisk can be installed only in recovery???

maybe you can try flashing TWRP and Magisk, 2 times,
so that it can recognize the Slot A and B during boots.
