I updated the firmware on my phone, and for a few days now I haven't had a freeze. @makeyourself and @jimithebear are you both running the latest firmware? The only other change I made (other than updating the firmware) was to cap my refresh rate to 60 Hz to extend battery life.
Then it either doesn't matter or it's an error on LineageOS part, pretty much every ROM on XDA for Vayu says to format after flashing the ROM.
EvolutionX:Flashing Instructions from any custom ROM (Thanks to Raf & @kamild_)
• Backup all your data.
• Transfer ROM and other zips (such as Gapps or Magisk) to internal storage, SD card or USB drive.
• Boot/reboot to recovery.
• Flash recommended MIUI firmware 184.108.40.206.
You can find them here. If you're already on it, you can skip this step. You can flash the fastboot version of the MIUI stock ROM through Mi Flash tool / Fastboot too but the procedure is slower.
• Flash CrDroid ROM.
• Flash GApps (Optional step) FlameGapps
• Flash Magisk (Optional step, only if you want root)
• Format Data > type "yes" and press enter (different from the "wipe data" option)
• Reboot to system
You definitely should format after flashing a ROM - you would be surprised to see some dangling nonsense left behind by some ROM installers.
While Lineage might be the most popular one it's certainly not the only one to call for that sequence (be it for the x3 pro specifically or community builds in general) guides are already in related threads here and I didn't check releases past the first page of the X3 pro forum.

How to flash for the first time:
(Again: Don't do it if you don't know!)
1. Download the ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device.
2. Boot to recovery (TWRP is recommended, the lineage recovery is a great alternative however, it will not decrypt the internal storage so you will have to flash the rom with adb sideload or usb OTG or with an external sdcard).
3. Wipe the System (DO NOT WIPE THE SYSTEM ON A/B DEVICES!), Cache, and Data (you might need to format the data partition!).
4. Flash the ROM zip file (reboot to recovery before flashing anything else if you have an "A/B" device).
5. Flash the GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work)
6. Reboot and set up your device.
7. You can then reboot to recovery and flash the root solution of your choice if you want to, and then boot back to the system.
For POCO X3 Pro (vayu)
- Make sure you are decrypted. EU/MiuiMix and other roms use encrypted data. Format if you coming from other roms.
- Flash Rom zip with latest recovery.
- Flash selinux.zip or FlashAfterRom.zip file if its a Port Rom else it wont boot (get file from our tg group)
- Once rom boots, open Elite Settings and open each menu one by one to fix some coloring stuff in statusbar etc.
- Thats it, enjoy the smoothness of rom .
Evolution X 7.0 for the Poco X3 Pro [vayu]
1. Reboot to Recovery
2. Wipe Dalvik/ART Cache, Data, and Cache on Advanced Wipe
3. Flash ROM
4. Flash DFE (optional)
5. Format Data, type "yes" and press enter
6. Reboot to System and #KeepEvolving!
DO NOT FLASH GAPPS, ALREADY INCLUDED

ArrowOS: flash then reset
I have been in the scene since ROMs were a PDA thing that is "cooked" from binaries not built from source and this is basically how I always did it, it will not make a difference if the ROM doesn't touch your user data partition (back in the old days devs used to do all kinds of tricks and hacks), but when you can't tell for sure (especially if you are installing addons on top of it) then it's safer to do it prior to flashing unless installation guide tells you otherwise.
Also, installer mishaps will always be a problem even when one doesn't have the option to clean up after it (updates).
