Evolution X 5.6.1 20210424-1321 Official Polaris Build

Etude update, blobs and firmware update from MIUI China Stable V12.0.3.0, new thermal configs, new dynamic thermal profiles, sepolicy rework, telephony and secure element blob update, April security patch, and more EvoX features!

Device Specific Changes:

  • Etude kernel: Op.11 No.4
    • Linux 4.9.267
    • some upstream commits of cpufreq_stats
    • enabled CONFIG_XFRM_MIGRATE for IPsec SA (RFC 4555)
    • added a binder flag to clear buffer on txn complete
    • DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
  • Updated blobs and firmware from MIUI China Stable V12.0.3.0
  • Updated priv-app permission whitelist for HotwordEnrollment
  • Adjusted thermal configs to delay CPU frequency drop and smoothen the thermal throttling curve
  • Implemented dynamic thermal profile to work with Pixel thermal engine
    • the option is accessible under Settings/Battery/Thermal profiles (in case you are wondering, they had no effect on EvoX before this change)
    • thermal configs are dynamically loaded on a per-app basis
    • only the gaming profile is available besides the default profile, because other use cases are covered well enough by the default profile
    • the gaming profile maintains CPU frequency at even higher temperature compared the default profile
    • surface temperatures are measured by an infrared thermometer with matching emissivity to ensure they stay below the allowed maximum values of continuously held electronic devices in IEC 60950-1 (2005) standard
    • thermal profile is NOT a replacement for proper cooling. If you want better performance, you should cool your device.
  • Eliminated most SELinux neverallows and cleaned up unneeded or broken sepolicy
    • the latest Riru installation should work now. Note that if you use any mods like this, you will not receive support from me
  • Updated telephony blobs from pyxis 21.3.31 to fix random qtibus crashes in the background
  • Went back to Secure Element 1.0 to work with the updated blobs

Evolution X Updates:

  • April security patch
  • Added QS and SysUI colors to Evolver and allowed QS theme to change according to wallpaper colors
  • Added preview to theme settings
  • Added screenshot quality settings
  • Some more QS tint styles
  • Face unlock improvements from PE
  • More changes from android S DP3
  • Brought back lock screen visualizer

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