Hmm 🤔 where did I do wrong here. I even flashed dp1 from flash.android.com site, that would definitely guarantee perfect flash.

I assume you did a full clean flash, letting it wipe user data and everything?

If so, it could be an issue with the Pixel Buds 2. I don't have personal experience with those ear buds but I recall reading that they had bluetooth disconnect issues previously.

I'd suggest trying a different set of bluetooth headphones.

I'm using both Pixel 5 and Pixel 3XL. I flashed dp1 only on p5 and started observing the issue. While having the issue on p5 with dp1, no issue with p3xl with stock public build.

And flashed back public build on p5 and no issue at all. If really the issue with Pixel Buds, it'll still be there after I went back to android 11.

Yep. Fair point.

Perhaps it's just the Pixel Buds? Those are more integrated with the OS than 3rd party ones. Hey @sn0warmy did you see that dual sim now supports 5G on 12? Hoping it makes it into the March update since the commit has been merged into AOSP since November. So seems you're using it as a DD. Any major drawbacks that might preclude others from going that route?

Not necessarily. I just got ninja'd but the Pixel Buds are part of the system OS and not merely a bluetooth head phone. They probably didn't work on that yet since it would be internal. I'm sure DP2 will fix it.

As a business owner who is constantly on my phone for video meetings, slack messaging, text, email , Google Docs etc., having a 100% functional phone is absolutely crucial. That said, it hasn't skipped a beat for me on 12 DP1.

However, there is one bug that may or may not be a deal breaker for some. Which is that (at least for me) individual app notification tones cannot be changed from the default system notification tone. It doesn't bother me because I'm perfectly fine just relying on the subtle "Gentle Gong" tone for everything. But others may not be ok with that.

Tried dp1 earlier today. Found 1 bug I can't stand which is media playback won't hear in my Pixel Buds 2, I guess it'll be the same with other bluetooth earbuds?

Tried rebooting the phone to see if it resolves it, no. Tried also forget the Buds and redo pairing still the same. I can hear notifications fine but media playback, no. Just silence.

So flashed back to Feb 2021 public build.

Can I ask you how did you get back to Feb 2021 build ? On the Android 12 website it says that you have to wipe everything... Don't want to do that but in the mean time I got the same bug as you on android 12

Unfortunately wipe is required to downgrade to 11.

I ran into my first bug. If I try to change the notification tone in any app other than 'Phone', notification settings force closes. So I'm stuck with all the default notification tones for everything except the system wide default notification tone and ringtone.




I'd advise against plastering your IP and device MAC address on a public forum...

Ran into the same notification settings crash thing today. And I managed to get a log snippet of the crash. Hope someone who understands it can tell us what the problem is.

Welp, I'm back on Android 11, March update.

Over the last two days I ran into a couple bugs that were show stoppers for me.

1) In my car, with Android Auto up and running, it no longer let me make calls by saying "Hey Google, Call XXXX". It stopped responding and I had to unplug my phone from the USB cable, then manually select the contact I wanted to call. It was responding to voice commands 2 days prior.

2) As I was about to kick off a call with a work client, the phone app refused to respond and wouldn't let me answer the call. The Phone app ended up crashing and wouldn't work again until after a reboot.

I rely on my phone for work too much to have it not perform the most basic functionality that a phone should. So the fun is over for me. I'll go back to Android 12 when it's fully stable and released.

Media playback work fine for me on my Pixel buds on 12 . Just installed it from a full wipe.

    Might be the best dev preview I've ever ran on a pixel phone. No issues here

    I've got a nice long 3 day weekend, starting now. So I'm going to give this a go and run it through its paces to test 5G, Wifi speeds, Bluetooth connectivity with watch/headphones/car, smart home control, notifications, various apps I frequently use etc.

    Will report back soon.
    3
    Initial thoughts...

    No issues discovered, yet.
    - Wifi speeds are on par with the February Android 11 build (see screenshot)
    - T-Mobile 5G speeds (Boulder, CO) are also on par with what I was previously seeing (see screenshot)
    - No issues sending/receiving texts/phone calls/Emails/Slack messages
    - Bluetooth connection and functionality with my Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch Active2 are solid
    - Google Smart Home device controls are working (HUE lights, Nest cameras, Google Home Hubs, Nest thermostat etc.)
    - Camera quality for photos & videos don't appear degraded
    - No noticeable stuttering or hiccups (yet)


    Still need to test:
    - Android Auto
    - Battery life
    - Longer term snappiness/smoothness (this tends to degrade over 1-3 days on previous developer previews I've tested)

    Side notes:
    - I was able to enable the developer flag for the new One-Handed Settings UI but I'm still trying to track down the flag to enable the new larger brightness slider layout.
    - Possibly a placebo but notifications tones are much louder/crisper than they were on Android 11 (even at the same volume slider setting). This was a persistent annoyance I had with Android 11 that I attributed to the new speaker setup of the Pixel 5 vs my previous Pixel 4.

    I got root working on A12 dp1.1. (yay)
    Userdata will be wiped so take a backup.

    - Install dp1.1 using the Android Flash Tool (flash.android.com) and check "disable verity" and "disable verification" before confirming
    - Patch the boot.img from the factory image using the latest magisk canary app.
    - just flash the patched boot.img (fastboot flash boot magisk_patched_*****.img)
    - reboot. If it fails to boot and asks you to format confirm.

    Universal safetynet fix doesnt work unfortunately. To fix run
    Code:
    adb shell
    magisk --remove-modules
    while booting.
    2
    flashed and running for me.. 5G working on Verion. I updated (no clean wipe).

    Battery may be a tad worse but that's because I'm used to being rooted and optimized.

    Havent come across any hard crashes and reboots. I'm making an install video.. then later one on features, sharing experience (after using it for a while as my daily)
