Same as any ROM.
Do the necessary wipes and flash the ROM.
No wipes are needed between updates from Descendant itself, unless specified.

Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.
So, head over the Telegram group and feel free to lurk.


Preloaded applications
Google Apps are included.

Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?
Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.

Great custom ROM, But Anyone knows whether TWRP now can work well with Android 12 decryption?
Current TWRPs builds available are unable to decrypt 12 /data partition.
You can either use DFE zips (discouraged) to decrypt /data and make it readable or wait for a TWRP build capable of decrypt /data itself.
Having data encrypted isn't really a big deal if you plan to sideload ROMs and whatever zip you might need.
But it's your call ! ;)
Download is only available by buying a token. Isn't that against 2 or 3 rules within the XDA rules?
This statement is false.
The matters regarding our download serving methods have been addressed directly by me with @MikeChannon multiple times over 10 and 11 Descendant's android cycle.
If any mod passing by has any doubt they can directly refer to him.

It'll be really good if you have screenshots of the OS tho
We'll provide 'em soon, it has been Christmas for us too :p

Hi, the page for bugs is not working so I'm asking here:

When I plug in some headphones wired or bluetooth the system freezes. It solves by plugin out the headphones.

Anyone with the same bug? I cannot listen to music.

### Edit: Solved.

The problem was Google App. I had to update to the last Play Store version.

Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC
I found some minor problems in the ROM that needs to be improved:
1. The Notification menu is not smooth, sometimes it hangs with nothing appearing when swiping down.
2. The touch-sensitive is not good as MIUI. Sometimes, I need to touch two times to the icon to open the app.

Very nice to see A12 Descendant voor Poco X3. After I've passed the 168 hours waiting time (to unlock bootloader) this will be the first rom to install. Thanks devs!

Great ROM. Thankyou.

Only issue I have seen is that Netflix is marked as incompatible (didn't show in play store). Banking apps, Google Pay and the like work fine.
