So I just switched over from a Moto G5 to this phone. The first thing I did was install LineageOS 19.1 (after playing with the stock rom a bit). I gotta be honest… I'm not loving Android 12. Are there any still active Android 11 builds left? Everything I've looked at here are either 12 or 13 now.

Back on the G5, there were some folks that were posting updated Lineage builds with back ported patches (even back to L14). How hard is it to do that? I admit I'm clueless at actually building the rom, but if it is something that can be learnt fairly easily, I'd be game to try

There is Proton Rom

Alternatively, have you tried using AOSP MOD module?

If you don't like the look of Android 12 or 13, perhaps the AOSP MOD module can change how it looks to your liking?

I might take a look at that module, but I've been avoiding anything xposed so far.
IMO A12 is just fuggly and that's the biggest reason I want to ditch it.
Ideally, I'd like to find a build of Lineage18.1 that has any/all security patches backported (or learn how to do it myself) Even better, find a way to get Oreo or Pie to work on the Pixel5

I hated A12 for a long time. Didn't really get on it til A13 was out.
Between quick settings customization and repainter for color customization it really helps.

I'm able to use the stock Pixel ROM happily with AOSP MODs. I think that the quick settings look really nice with the help of AOSP MODs.
I'd give it a solid chance before saying it isn't for you, and if it isn't I think the best A11 ROM is crdroid.
Could be others but Crdroid A11 ROM was my ROM of choice before upgrading.

P5 came with A10 IIRC, so you may be able to get that going but anything below that I'd be surprised.

I actually felt the same about android 12, just didn't fit my eye. So about 6 months ago, I installed the latest stock version of android 11. I was originally planning to root the P5, and install flar's kernel, but everything has run so well, I've not gone any further. I still may install twrp, and give elemental a try ... we'll see. My advice, go for it.

@andybones hey how did you get your QS tiles to be bigger, like in your screenshot, and labels underneath the icons? Is it the premium feature of repainter app? I really like that style and look.
I love this feature, it's actually a wonderful mod in AOSP MODs "Move tile icons to the top"

Hah funny story. I used Fox's Magisk Module Manager to download AOSP MOD but for some reason, the latest version in Fox app was v2.2, not v2.4. I was wondering why I didn't have that option until I realised that I was using the wrong version! 🤦‍♂️Anyway, updated to the latest v2.4. and now I see that option. Thanks for your reply, otherwise I would've never realised it.

Glad I was able to help you figure it out!
This is why I like to flash the canary versions.
I find that it's very stable.
