Evolution X 6.0 02130533 Official Polaris Build

Linux 4.9.301, refcount optimizations, disabled backpressure propagation, parts update, February security patch, and some new features.


  • Formatting data and clean flash are required if you come from android 11. Please do not update through OTA if you are on android 11.
  • Encryption is disabled for various reasons. You can keep using the latest TWRP or OrangeFox, but please follow the clean flash guide carefully.
  • Dirty flash is fine from previous EvoX android 12 builds
  • When switching to other ROMs, you may need to re-flash the required firmware, if the ROM you are going to flash does not include one.

Device Specific Changes:

  • Etude kernel: Op.12 No.2
    • Linux 4.9.301 and CAF tag LA.UM.10.3.r1-00900-sdm845.0
    • removed 2 bytes of padding in network buffers
    • upstreamed generic locking/refcount from 4.14
    • ported arm64-specific fast refcount checking
    • enabled HID WACOM driver
    • wireguard 1.0.20211208
    • DO NOT use another kernel. Just don’t.
  • Properly disabled surfaceflinger backpressure propagation to reduce jank in certain scenarios
    • we had it disabled on android 11, but a change in surfaceflinger property on android 12 accidentally enabled it again
  • Updated parts to newer APIs like TaskStackListener and TaskInfo
    • also fixed some harmless log spams caused by SElinux
  • Whitelisted an intent broadcast for the new ims.apk
  • Dropped obsolete eBPF prop

Evolution X Updates:

  • February security patch
  • Added Repainter for fine tuning Monet colors
  • An option to disable unlock ripple effect
  • Switched to a new traffic indicator implementation
  • Removed extended swipe gesture due to issues with normal back gesture
  • Refactored many Evolver settings
  • Toggles for disabling certain spoofs

Clean flash guide:

  • Install the latest TWRP or OrangeFox
  • If you have the latest OrangeFox R11.1_1, you can simply wipe the cust partition from GUI. With TWRP or older versions of OrangeFox, open Terminal (Advanced/Terminal in TWRP, Menu/More/Terminal in OrangeFox), and run command
    mke2fs -t ext4 -b 4096 /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/cust
    then enter “y” to confirm.
  • Install ROM in recovery
  • Format data (the one you type “yes” to confirm)
  • Reboot

Gapps, vendor and firmware are included.
