It's not ready for prime time and daily use IMO. I run Nova. Along with many other apps, you will be getting Toast messages due to the libraries etc not all being updated by the app vendors yet. Among other annoyances at times. Will wait for better App support and no messages/app closes on the Beta before I go back. Not sure how long it will take the devs to update apps to support P entirely.

But if you want to check it out and see what is coming, it is worth the effort. I played with it for maybe 2 days, but got tired of the toast messages/errors with my daily stuff I need. So just went back to Nitrogen/root/flash kernel for my daily.

Panic attack like the app freaked out? Or you thought you lost your pix?

Is magisk working on this dp?

Thanks!
Google Photos flickers , blacks out, and is unusable. My photos are secure, they all still show up just fine on the Google Photos website.

I have Magisk 16.4 installed on the stock kernel. It's working but feels it's not quite ready. It force closes from time to time, and sometimes forgets what I set to hide.

Probably going to clean flash the May security release when I get home, or perhaps at the office tomorrow.

Have had two apps that worked in Oreo not work at all in P.... PowerAmp causes a reboot (looks like just a UI reboot as it only takes a second), MX Player just crashes back straight away. Apart from these two apps it's been pretty flawless for the last 6hrs...

One thing I can't work out is how to get to the Easter Egg... you can't constantly press on the version information as it pops up in a separate dialog box
I'm running PowerAmp and MX Player with no issues. How did you install P?

I only had it very briefly because I found that after the initial PIN entry after the first restart, it would not let me swipe up to enter a PIN on the lockscreen. It tried, but no longer how quickly I swiped up, the number pad would never stick.

I registered for the beta and took the OTA. I had the april update on a google play version. Not unlocked or rooted, 100% stock. I dont know what happened, it booted and brought up the Android Beta message but it kept doing little quick restarts or something every few seconds. I couldnt even hit OK on the beta message or enter my pin. It was like a boot loop but a post boot boot loop. Not sure what to call it. I did manage to get the power menu up and restarted into recovery and factory reset. That fixed it. Gotta reinstall everything but it is working now. Just thought i would share in case anyone else ran into it.

How did you run the beta that dropped today for 2 days? I haven't seen one toast message about that. I've had a pretty much flawless experience with the current beta the last few hours.

Really smooth so far my two gripes so far. Text prediction or auto correct feature just seems "janky" random letters are being typed more often causing me to delete and retype. And the keyboard seems to want to minimize often on it's own while I'm typing.

Other then those annoyances it's been pretty awesome. Battery seems better imho.
