There is an issue with audio calling. If I call someone using messenger apps (like messenger, or telegram etc.), both of us don't hear anything. Trying to call for several times sometimes solves the problem. But it occurs randomly. It happens only with audio call, not with video call. And calling using sim card is totally fine.

(I got the same issue on another rom on this device. Project Elixir latest version which is 1.8. In that rom, no one hears sound no matter what. No one can hear sound at all. But in Spark OS, it works occasionally. (it's not microphone issue, recording voice or video call or normal sim card call or any other rom works just fine).)

I love everything about this rom, but I didn't one things about (compared to 12.4 and some other roms) which is opening apps time, it takes more considerable and noticeable time. Some solution ?

It maybe due to zram feature (for better ram management). SOC uses compression to save multiple apps user data somewhere on your storage, when it does frequently, apps may get slower probably in milliseconds, but won't crash.

So, reboot your system once in two days (preferable) to refresh all apps and UI

can I get back l1 with your rom?

L1 once lost, its lost forever. But there is a hack, this may help. Try on your own risk.

I can't get Android Auto to work. Seems like it's not integrated into the System? A response would be great as I use this feature nearly on daily basis

    Spark OS (Unofficial) - Android 13

    ReadMe: DISCLAIMER :

    This is my personal build that I am using it as daily driver and I am sharing it in this thread. I am not planning to make the development official due to time concerns, but I'll make monthly builds in free time and release it. You may also join the telegram channel or post queries in this thread and it will be addressed. Do not ask for OTA in any formats. I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermal problems, or any problems you face in your personal or business life because of your dead device. Do some research if you have any concerns about the features included in the rom before flashing it. YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and If you point fingers on me for messing up your device, GOOD LUCK !

    AOSP based rom with customization focused on stability, Pixel like experience and most of all smoothness.

    What is working ? :

    Almost everything is working including:
    • Stock like FOD (implemented Framework Dimming)
    • Volte
    • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
    • Turbo Charging
    • Screencast
    • Banking apps work fine
    • Prebuilt recovery included
    • And all most widely used stuffs for daily use.
    Known issues:
    • Call volume adjustment in Instant messaging apps (Whatsapp, telegram, Duo,etc) for wired headsets don't work. Will be fixed later. Fixed
    • There is a little bit offset in UDFPS animation position, but fingerprint scanning works fine (cosmetic bug). Fixed
    Installation:

    If you are coming from Stock Rom or other custom rom, Clean flashing is Mandatory and follow the steps below

    • You MUST have unlocked bootloader and android 11 firmware on your phone - Remove your lockscreen password!!
    • Flash LineageOS recovery via fastboot fastboot flash boot <name of the recovery img file>.img Click here to download LOS Recovery img and zip
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Perform a factory reset
    • Navigate Apply update -> apply from ADB
    • Sideload the rom zip file adb sideload <rom zip name> or if you have sd card or otg just copy the rom in that and flash through sd card or otg.
    • Follow the same process to flash los recovery zip (OPTIONAL) (the same way how u flashed rom zip) - Prebuilt recovery is shipped with rom since May 2022 security patch.
    • Reboot System and Enjoy
    To Upgrade to future spark builds you can dirty flash. Follow the steps below
    • Reboot to los recovery (in case you've installed that) or prebuilt recovery.
    • Navigate Apply update -> apply from ADB
    • Sideload the rom zip file adb sideload <rom zip name> or if you have sd card or otg just copy the rom in that and flash through sd card or otg.
    • Follow the same process to flash los recovery zip (the same way how u flashed rom zip). (Skip this step if you need prebuilt recovery).
    • Reboot system.
    For Users who prefer rooted experience
    • Reboot to los recovery after flashing rom or whenever you wish
    • Navigate Apply update -> apply from ADB
    • Sideload Magisk zip file adb sideload <magisk zip>
    • Reboot to system.
    • Hide Play Services, Playstore and Banking apps and clear data for the device to get certified.
    • Reboot again.
    Though Custom Kernels are supported (like 912,evie), I prefer users to use the kernel that is shipped with the rom.
    • Download and install Franco Kernel Manager or Horizontal Kernel flasher to your device (search google)
    • Flash kernel zip only in FKM or Horizontal Kernel flasher.
    • Reboot.
    If any app closes while you're opening it, it might be the safetynet is not properly initialized, to solve this,
    • Flash safetynet fix in magisk. Click Here
    • Clear data of the crashing apps.
    • Reboot and relaunch the apps.

    The latest version (12.5) seems good but A11 style qs is pretty annoying to me, and also there's no option for changing it back to A12 style. Please fix this.

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful rom
    A11 QS is a source side change, once the source is fixed or any option available for a12 style, it will be reflected in future builds.
