* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Great work, I will try this soon!

I have a few questions:

  • What's the difference between this ROM and elmaleek03's PixelExperience ROM and what has changed other than the upgrade to 12L?
  • Would you be able to put an Android Security Patch Level section in the main post?
  • Is it possible to de-google this ROM, I know it defeats the purpose of PixelExperience¿

1. it seems that elmaleek is no longer updating the rom because he has changed devices, I contacted him directly outside the forum, and also initially I was only going to build the Pixel Experience Plus version, but I might as well build the regular type, so the difference, almost nothing except Plus version and update Security patches.

2. Security Patch April.

3. it's not a google experience without google apps, but on the other hand I'm trying to build another rom with minimal google apps or maybe vanilla, hopefully I can succeed considering I'm not a pro builder.

ahhh ok, if you do make another rom with minimal google apps I would love LineageOS or something similar, I have just got into building AOSP's from source using the SODP so I am very new to ROM compilation. :)

I'm also still monitoring sodp and it seems for now it's not stable.

I see a lot of bugs on github that haven't been resolved, here on the other hand I'm really waiting for Kernel 4.19 to be stable.
hope Miuistone can finish it soon considering he is very active there.
