    Post What happens after the final Beta? (Android 12)

    after the final beta there'll be a stable release, you'll get the update OTA and you won't need to format or leave the beta program. :)

    Post Bliss Rom Official

    oh my goodness, telegram is an absolute nightmare, can you imagine trying to work out a list of rom features from a telegram channel? surely one of the worst places to get this kind of information. anyway i don't like to complain, i'm sure the rom is very good, just a strange phenomenon i've...

    general question: what's the with move away from roms listing features or including screenshots these days? both blissroms and lineageOS have fancy websites with almost no details on what the roms offer and no screenshots. i get that they are free and owe me nothing but why on earth would i...

    couple of super minor issues i've noticed after using for a bit. 1. showing am/pm in the clock and then hiding it again converts system time to 24-hour. 2. ambient display never shows music details with this mod enabled, regardless of what lock screen settings i have enabled. not sure if...

    really great work on this, it's added everything i could have wanted with unbelievably little effort. two minor things. 1. seems like the lockscreen clocks try to pick highlights from the wallpaper but don't do a great job? see attachment 1. 2. as with other similar mods, the "centre clock"...

    a lot of great points in this thread. i will add: i definitely don't need root or any mods on this phone. but since i can have them, i play with them. i must admit i've not even bothered installing AOSiP, even though the feedback has been uniformly positive, just cos i cbf'd re-setting up and...

    good thread and yeah i think we're getting to the "post-mortem" point re: ROMs (Skittles9823’ AOSiP notwithstanding). i went from the samsung galaxy s3 -> xperia z3 -> xperia xz1c -> pixel 3a, and each one has been a big step down in terms of ROM availability (i was spoiled with the galaxy s3...

    late response and last i'll say on this but for me the xz1c camera was squarely average, not catastrophic (as some people made out) but not "good" but everything i read suggests that the xz2c camera was a big upgrade from the xz1c so yeah that definitely adds up.

    honestly i was tossing up between the xz2c and the 3a, with the 3a winning out due to price and camera. sounds like i dodged a bullet tho cos i have very little patience for lousy battery life. re: the difference between the two phones, my biggest concern was the size. i have been whining about...
