Otherwise really good ROM, smooth and fast.

But it is just a channel. I said group in which we can send message. If it exits please send the link...
If there is a group, I don't have time to deal with spammers and ad bots. Traditional XDA forum is fine and good. Many people are here to take care of and will be accountable.

If you have any request and is genuine, feel free to post in this this thread or tag me in Mi A3 official group. Such requests and any other bugs in rom shall be dealt with.

    flash magisk and then install BCR module. Basic call recorder.
    works flavlesly.

    Is It a magisk module? Need I flash magisk and rooting phone?
    yes both Axet's call recorder and BCR are in form of magisk module, so yes, you do need magisk to install them.

    Where can I download magisk zip to flash?
    there is no magisk zip to download, simply download magisk.apk and change ( rename ) apk to zip so you get magisk.zip, reboot to recovery and flash it, reboot and rest is easy.

    Yes what? Yes, it is still a thing or yes, I can install it when I have android 12.1 on my phone?

    I ask because I suppose OP wrote it when A11 was the last android OS and I am not sure if he updated the instructions since he released A13 version of the rom.
    yes for both, if you switched to 12.1 from 11 then you can flash this ROM.
    if not then you may need latest stock boot.img but that is something that mainterner manojkrishkumar should give his insight on.

    App icon hiding is shifted to settings>>security>>more security settings>> app lock >> protected apps

    Select an app and you will find "Hide from launcher" option. Then, force stop spark launcher and restart it.

    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 !


    1644804839149.png

    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 or A13 boot image via fastboot fastboot flash boot <name of the recovery img file>.img Click here to download LOS Recovery img and zip | Boot Image
    • 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 your 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.
    • In magisk app, enable Zygisk and enforce denylist. Select Play Services, Playstore, Banking apps and other apps that are crashing due to root.
    • Clear data on these apps for the device to get certified and retain functionality.
    • Reboot again.
    Though Custom Kernels are supported (like 912, Noname), 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 or crashes while you're opening it, it might be Safetynet issue, to solve this,
    • Flash safetynet fix in magisk. Click Here
    • Sometimes, custom kernel may solve the situation.
    • Clear data of the crashing apps.
    • Reboot and relaunch the apps.
    Miscellaneous: Magisk modules that I use in my device Click Here

    Pretty cool rom, but just one thing making it hard to use... That no sound issue in app audio calling still remains...

    Please please fix this issue asap :( :(

    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.
