Android 12 ROM for Pixel 2 XL (Pixel 2 coming soon)​

@Lunarixus on XDA (using his device tree, mentorship, and fixes. Wonderful work) & https://t.me/lunarixus_work on Telegram Posts
@RealOkabe on XDA for his build process, we only reached bootable state thanks to his work.
@ReallySnow on XDA & https://t.me/ReallySnow_ROM on Telegram Posts for his work on Android 12 vendor. I consider him my teacher, and most of the Android 12 heavy lifting was done by him.
None of this would've happened without them.


ProtonAOSP is a minimal Android fork (custom ROM) focused on UI/UX and performance, with a touch of privacy.
Screenshots are attached.

What's not working:
  • Encryption​
  • Magisk causes bootloop only on Gapps build​
  • SELinux is Permissive​
  • You tell me... post logcats using my tool in this thread or you may get support in Telegram: Pixel Development & Pixel 2XL chat
Download
  • Download the factory image from here: Vanilla Version - Gapps Version
  • This does not include OTAs, so you will have to visit regularly for security updates and the like.
Installation
  • This ROM is currently distributed as factory images, similar to stock. Flash it the same way you would flash stock factory images. Don't forget to wipe all data using "fastboot -w" or using my tool before booting the ROM.
  • Run flash-all.bat if on Windows.
  • Run flash-all.sh if on *nix (if it doesn't work, just flash the images manually.

13 Nov 2021:
-Fixed battery drain
-Added setup wizard for Gapps build
-Added modded Gcam *HOT!!* for Gapps build
-Added more Google Apps, removed 99% of AOSP crapware for Gapps build
-Fixed play services contacts sync for Gapps build
-Added new and refreshed ProtonAOSP boot animation
-Magisk not supported on Gapped build, will bootloop

11 Nov 2021:
-Fixed fingerprint.
-Enabled Active Edge.
-Fixed wifi functionality.
-Now both gapps and vanilla builds will fit on a stock system partition.

10 Nov 2021:
-Fixed gatekeeper.
-Somehow broke wifi.
-Added vanilla build (this will flash without requiring a repartition).

09 Nov 2021:
-Initial build (gapps only, doesnt fit in system partition). Much functionality is broken.

Feel free to give me your hard-earned money, my pixel 2XL's screen is dead, so developing this ROM is a tedious and annoying process: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/guidedflame
Edit: thanks to the people that have donated. For the sake of transparency, I'm gonna publicise the donations i've received. a pixel 2xl where i live costs 200 dollars. I'm gonna be putting a counter here.

$85.95/200 (42% progress)

Is vanilla build better or the build you've already uploaded? Which one has all the Pixel goodies?
the build i already uploaded has a lot of pixel stuff. though it will only flash if you repartitioned your device according to my guide (linked in the second post).

the upcoming build will be flashable by everyone. it'll still have the pixel specific stuff like launcher and animated wallpapers, just slightly debloated!

also a vanilla build is coming alongside it for those that want to run without gapps.

    OP, did you get enough donations to get a used Pixel 2 XL to replaced the one with broken screen? if not how much more do you need?

    If you don't want it, don't dl app as I suggested!
    As I said before, it's not in the Google Wallpaper app. I own 3 Pixel devices so I'm pretty sure it's not in there.

    I actually contacted the developer of the ROM and he was nice enough to point me in the right direction. If you guys are interested in downloading it here it is:

    @Alxoom33 Here's the wallpaper you're probably thinking about from the Google Wallpaper app:

    Do I need to root my phone to install this?
    Page 2 has some info on this too, but. No, you do not usually need root for roms, though, you do have to unlock your bootloader, that ones a must.
