The only bug Ive found is that if you rotate the device to landscape, it doesnt want to rotate back to portrait without turning the screen on and off

I am using daily the previous build for 3 days and its PERFECT bro thank you so much. Viper4android works, battery life slightly better than stock, no bugs or issues and the most important: It fixed my proximity sensor issues. It started "blinking" about a month ago, making calls and listening to voice messages very annoying (screen would be blinking randomly). After I flashed the stock 11 version and it wasnt fixed, I was sure it was a hardware issue with many reports of it being faulty on 5 ii and 1 ii on forums and reddit, but now I suspect its a combination of proximity/light sensor calibration. The automatic brightness on your rom works much better than stock and I suspect the proximity sensor uses the light sensor at the same time. I tried all root solutions on the market claiming to recalibrate the sensor but no luck. Now its working as intended with your rom!

Is it safe to dirty flash the updated version? Will I need to wipe data?

Thanks again for single handedly creating so many ROMs for the best phone (in hardware) in the market. I was really considering to sell my 5ii because of the issues and software bugs, but now I have hope again it will be great using Lineage/Pixel Experience.

I can confirm LDAC is NOT working currently, It doesn't broadcast song information to my car stereo when hooked to bluetooth.

Would really love to use this officially from the PE server without having to flash odm. How did you get the stock camera as well @ken442266 ? I thought there is only paclages to flash for photo pro and cinema pro? Could you maybe link a working version of the normals stock cam as well? Would really appreciate that? Also, is safetynet working?
It would also be great to have exfat support ;) since that is just a few kernel tweaks

All camera needs some hack to make it work. And I will post a stock camera next month when I update PE, Along with R photo pro && cinema pro .And about the exfat problem have to wait for official to release the kernel source.

Hey man thanks for your reply ;)
That is nice, so this will become official without SODP base? Would really love to see that happen.
Does safetynet work on this ROM to install Netflix and Google Pay and stuff like that? And how is the battery life @120hz compared to stock @120hz?
Sorry for asking that much but I am really interested in this ROM and appreciate your hard work on it ;)
And I am really looking forward to stock Dolby Atmos ;) thanks for implementing that as well ;)
One last one: is 21w fast charging supported and if H.S. is on board as well are you going to implement the Game Enhancer too and how is the camera performance with the stock apps compared to the stock ROM itself?

It will always be UNOFFICIAL. I'm still a student and will have less time to update it when I go to school. And about safetynet . idk. Cause I don't use it. battery life is fine (60hz up to 10h screen on time, Which is same as stock based on my usage). Everything you expect is almost the same as stock.

All of that is really great to hear, thanks a lot. If you have not touched anything sfetynet related the nit will very likely not work since it has to be fixed manually. That should not be too hard and if you like and have got the time some day you can have a look into it ;)

    two minor issues.

    1) nowhere to disable one sim card out of the two.
    2) there is no option for 5GHz in the settings of hotspot.

    overall it runs smoothly. thank you!

    magisk patched from .51 works for magisk without having to use TWRP. Works great! Does anyone know if we can port Side Sense over to this ROM?

    Maybe it's the PE problem.
    But mine is fine.
