Calyx is out, but its kinda simmilar. Lineage 20 will hopefully come next year, which is the one I'm looking forward to
I'm looking at Calyx, and it seems like it would actually work. Graphene didn't work for me because all of the apps it came with were out of date and didn't work right, but given the fact that Calyx uses well known privacy focused apps, it looks like I'll be good to go once they've come out with their Android 13 update lol

First of all, they're not out of date. They're the latest from AOSP. Oh, and they DO work right.
Second, if you don't like, that's what makes Android great -- install alternative applications, I suggest from F-droid.

Please don't write things that are demonstrably false. The truth is inverse of what you have written.

To be fair, the graphene apps have a popup that tells you its apps are not meant for your current version of android. Also they're in my opinion painful to look at because they don't comply to the system theme

I'd like to install a custom ROM on my 6a, and graphene didn't satisfy me, so I'd like to know if anyone's found any others that i could try out lol
Just run Stock, you are better off, if you need to optimise just root and debloat, much better alternative to Graphene os or Calyx IMO. if you don't want to root debloat using adb. Best of luck

I thought they cant support 13, due to changes in software and its not possible, correct me if im wrong ( which i prob am ) i remember reading that somewhere dunno where. eh
Id be surprised iif that were the case. Android has changed, but twrp usuallly adapts sooner or later

    Hello!
    I am considering to buy this phone, but I notice that the "stock to custom rom" process is harder than in preious google phones I had and also that has few ROMs available, is it true?

    I could not even find the usual pixel experience or Lineage OS

    Trying not to be too much off topic, is it a good mobile go buy?
    Thanks
    Just one man's opinion.

    There's not much on the rom front but usually that heats up at about the 6-12 month mark, post-release from what I've seen in the past. This phone was released in May I think, so it's about on track from past history.

    But yeah - that part is jsut getting going. I do see a fair amount of activity but non-flagship phones can be hit or miss on the rom front.

    That mentioned - I love the phone and it works well...but if you want 5-6 roms to choose from you may want to hold off. IF you are paitent they should come soon. I know Lineage is in process right now...Graphene, Caylx are out there and I've flashed a coupld of unofficial builds to date.

    I tried but couldn't get it to take - commands just weren't working for me. I'll give it another go this weekend and see if I can get the install :)
    From what i can recall download bluejay full build rom,boot,vendor>flash boot>flash vendor>go to recovery>select sideload adb>install rom

    make sure your on the latest adb/fastboot.

    Been running Graphene on mine since it dropped. Only issue I've had is some of my games don't play well with it. Software, am I right? /shrug
