Announcement from Rainbow_Dash: Initial release
Pixel Experience ROM for the Galaxy Note 9

What is this?
Quote:

Pixel Experience is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, bootanimation)
Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential features for the proper functioning of the device
Based on Android 8.1

What's working?
Everything seems to be working as on the official s9 los15 build; with minor exceptions (screen recording can sometimes be a lil buggy, nfc can be a lil hicky etc)

What's not working?
Quote:

Obviously Samsung's own features such as Samsung Pay, KNOX, Theme Center, Game Launcher, etc. won't be ported to LineageOS Pixel Experience. We may have our own implementation to similar functions, though.
Iris sensor does not work because AOSP upstream does not support that yet.
IMS services (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc). Samsung has their own proprietary implementation. It is not really possible to easily port that to LineageOS PixelExperience.

Disclaimer: This rom is not built by me. That has been done by @malinathani with some help from myself. After that he insisted that I make this thread

Instructions:
Make sure TWRP has been installed and functional.
Download the latest build linked below
Reboot to recovery
Wipe data and cache (required if you switch from other ROMs). Even better if you have nothing to loose and wipe system,data,cache,storage etc
Flash the latest build (and gapps). DONT flash gapps. they are already included in the rom.
Reboot and enjoy

Downloads:

Galaxy Note9 (N960F): MEGA Onedrive

A: You did read the instructions and NOT flash any gapps riighhttt?? smh, wipe /system,/data and /cache and start over

Q: I have another bug; How can i tell it to you while slightly increasing my changes of it ever getting fixed.
A: You can tell me what's going on either here or on telegram WITH A LOGCAT attached(required);if rom isn't booting at all attach /proc/last_kmsg.

But still thank you very much

Good day,

1. Is there a link/attachment for an official ARH5/ARH6 vendor image that we can use with this ROM?

2. I wiped /system,/data and /cache flashed the ROM with and without an ARH6 image (https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=1322778262904015418) within TWRP and got bootloop.

What am I missing?

Ummm, you can try flashing vendor from the Light Rom thread or try flashing noverity.zip after flashing the ROM.

I totally agree, but give this a shot once, it's noticeably smooth compared to the gsis out there (I've used many myself) it also has dual speakers working. As for pie gsis they have this animation lag while switching and opening apps. Give it a shot and I hope you'll like it.
