Evolution X 5.3 20210127-2249 Official Polaris Build

Etude update, Google Play system update fix, ANX portrait mode fix, QS tiles to show fps and cpu temperature, diasbled statusbar burn-in protection, and misc Evolution X fixes

Device Specific Changes:

  • Etude kernel: Op.11 No.2
    • Linux 4.9.253
    • cpufreq: reverted average capacity calculation fix due to performance regression
    • wireguard: 1.0.20210124
    • DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
  • Created and symlinked a dummy /metadata/apex to fix Google Play system update
    • Google moved the apex sessions directory from /data/apex/sessions to /metadata/apex/sessions
    • we do not have a metadata partition out of the box
    • thus a dummy directory is created to satisfy the requirement
    • Note: there may be multiple Google Play system updates since October 2020, and your phone may need multiple reboots to install them. You may see a “try again” after you press the reboot button for the second time, and that is because Google Play stops reboot caused by system update if the previous reboot was within 15 minutes. It was intended to prevent infinite reboot during a bootloop (and yes it is stupid in this case). Just reboot manually and the update will install fine.
  • ANX Camera portrait mode now works out of the box (verified on ANX Camera 185R)
  • Added node to show measured fps value through “FPS Info” QS tile
  • Added node to show CPU big core temperature through “CPU Info” QS tile
  • Disabled statusbar burn-in protection because we have an LCD panel

Evolution X Updates:

  • Added QS header data usage info
  • Allow disabling SmartSpace
  • Some improvements on Ambient Music
  • Misc fixes

Gapps, vendor and firmware are included. Dirty flash may be fine if you are on my previous Evolution X build.
