Project seems abandoned, it's best to move on to other custom ROMs in official state

Been using this release for a day or two. It's been fine, mostly. As fine as Android 12 is anyway. Performance issues on taimen is very noticeable but that's applicable for all Android 12 ROMs. There is one major issue though, the vibrate mode icon doesn't appear on status bar, unlike Mute icon. It appears after pulling down but that's not the point. I am aware Google has thought of this asininity with Android 12 but I am not sure whether that was fixed on later releases. If it was I would kindly request to put it back in the next release of Proton, should there be any.

I would really appreciate it if anybody can point me to a step-by-step guide (like those that exist for lineage) to install this rom from the stock rom. I ask cause I see there is a lot of stuff about formatting the device differently throughout the thread. I would like to end with having regular recovery (i know i need a custom recovery during the install process) and I'm fine with going through this process for updates after install unless the custom recovery doesn't cause issue with bank apps and google pay.

Plug phone in with usb, disable any screen lock methods you might have set.

-reboot > bootloader
- boot to TWRP (I fastboot boot TWRP)
- wipe cache/system/data ( I also swipe factory reset after)
- flash rom (after rom flashes don't reset at this section, go back and tap to reset to bootloader, this changes active slot)

Now I repeat the above process and flash the rom to the other slot, not sure if it does anything so this could be a skipable step.

- reboot to bootloader
- boot to TWRP again
- flash magisk
- format data type yes
- reboot system

Setup Google stuff then open magisk shortcut. Install and setup magisk rebooting when prompted during install. Open magisk and enable zygisk in setting then reboot then enable denylist. I select the apps that check for root and they work fine after this.

I'm afraid the guide needs to be even more detailed for me as I have been out of the scene for a while. I don't have TWRP recovery installed already. I don't need the magisk part since I don't want root. Also, is repartitioning no longer needed? And what do you mean by slot? Sim slots? Pixel only has 1 e-sim and 1 physical sim.

You need your PC setup for ADB and fastboot. Get the android SDK tools. Search maowdroid on YouTube he's got great tutorials.

No need to repartition. TWRP isn't installed. Instead you download the .IMG file and use a windows command window to fastboot itbon your pixel. Slots refers to slots a and b.

Our phone has these two slots you'll notice when you flash in TWRP. When you flash a rom you flash to the opposite slot you are currently running on (running on A flashing to B), when you reboot to bootloader after rom flash and fastboot your pixel back into TWRP you are now running on "B" slot. This is when you would flash gapps(if rom doesn't include), magisk etc, now on "B" slot flashing magisk/gapps to "A" slot.

    Android 12 ROM for Pixel 2 XL - Maintained by @EnesSastim

    @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:
    Download
    • Download from here: Source Forge
    • 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 OTA zips. Flash it the same way you would, in a custom recovery. Don't forget to wipe all data using "fastboot -w" or using my tool before booting the ROM.

    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.

    Edit 2: pls don't donate to me anymore.

    $200/200 (100% progress)

    I updated the thread with a new build that should be fully functional. Enjoy!
