Can you tell us about the lag and fluidness of the rom? I didnt like the Pie and Oreo I've tried and returned to 7.1.2 but never the less I really appreciate devs making efforts to make our old moto g to be updated.

Thanks for your work and for giving us a new rom.

Just how??

I've been wondering for ages if Pixel Experience Pie would be a real thing or not as it was discontinued in the official site. Today I found out this post and got to flash it...

What an amazing job for the developer!! This ROM is even more fluid than LineageOS 16 in my Moto G2 of 8GB. Not 60FPS by far, but completely usable as second device for music, social media or really low games (#Drive, Smash Bandits...)

Im gonna keep using this device for a week and I will update its evolution.

REALLY IMPRESSED <3

Update(21/04/2019)
  • Some FC fixed (Google Text To Speech and many)
  • SELinux fixes
  • Enabled Google Assistant (OK Google)
  • Few optimizations

Attention:
1. To make Google Assistant work, you might need to select Google as Assistant Default, to do so, go to Settings>Apps & Notifications>Default Apps> Assist and Voice input, select Google as default. Then reboot.
2. It might cause lag while using assistant, not because of pie rom, but your device has 1GB ram and new Google app needs new hardware things, make sure you dont complain about that, recent Google Apps are pretty heavy for legacy devices
3. You can always update google apps, but new software might cause lag...If you want to stop auto updating google apps, you can turn if off on playstore
4. Those who are facing facelock crashes, flash this right after flashing the rom (Before opening Smart Lock)

Download: AFH

A facial lock option is not working.

Hope this will help you

Hope this will help you

Consider I flashed the update without wiping the previous ROM, just as an update

First of all, everything seemed to work fine, but after couple of minuts later, Pixel Launcher restarted itself non-stop. The fix was just deleting the app's data.

Assistant works perfectly fine, I think is the first ROM I've tried that runs it. (I tried Pixel Experience Android 8.1 and LineageOS 16 Unofficial)
Also performance upgrades seem to be present, but slightly, which is completely undertandable
:good: :good: :good: :good:

First of all, thanks for bringing this one to us. You rock man.
I've been using latest build since release, not a single bug so far. It feels just as smooth as LOS 16, though it has a little stuttering while scrolling on drawer (with every launcher I tried), and this is the only lag I see. Great, nice improvement from previous build.
However I noticed three **REALLY SMALL** issues that somehow bothers me and I'll try to describe them at my best considering my poor english. Please note that I dont care if you ever gonna fix those, I'm sticking to this a little longer as I love PE.
1- Icons on default launcher looks cropped as if they are bigger than they should so they get somehow 'squared'.
2- Offline charging shows no percentage.
3- (oh boy, this is gonna be hard to describe) Buttons on navbar gets buggy sometimes. Remember that bug on google photos, which made pics look as if they were 'scratched' or with 'missing pixels'? This is it. Everytime I scroll to google feed or open and close drawer (everytime an image or screen goes behind navbar, for that matter) buttons get buggy. Clicking the weird button fixes it, however.
Well, this is it. Great job @thedeadfish59. Thank you very much for everything you've done so far. Peace ;)

Eternal gratitude

@thedeadfish59

Thank you very much, I have a lot to thank you for striving to develop such a wonderful rom for my faithful friend, Moto-G2, I hope that in the official version she is one of the best roms.
I wish all the success in the world for you, and once again thank you very much for being interested in this simple device but that there are still many people who use it.

OBS: I hope you understand what you are not just writing, help from my friend "Google Translate."

    I will drop the final version of PE soon, with few changes, due to fever (dengue suspects) and sickness, i wasnt active for a long time, and i have very tight schedule as well, since pie development is at the end, so the final build will be dropped soon :)
