    This is Candy Pie for the Essential Phone. Built straight from source with commits from a variety of different Sources/ROMS. We wanted to give the users a fun, fully customisable ROM, with regular updates and security patches.

    We do this as a hobby, and we happily share the Candy of our toils with the custom ROM community, for free. We use what we share on our own devices, most as Daily Drivers, so you can be confident that problems will be promptly addressed.

    Thanks for your support and camaraderie. Special thanks to GZOSP, GZR-ROMs, LineageOS, SlimRoms, OmniROM, AOSiP, DU and the innumerable rest who make their source open. We can't do all of this on our own!

    Donations are appreciated, but NEVER expected.

    Stay tuned for more Candy!

    The CandyROMs team is looking for testers who can help us test and improve the ROM experience over time. Testers generally get new features and fixes before a public release and a source merge and help in the development as result. Interested people can DM me their Telegram usernames or message at our Telegram public chat http://t.me/candyroms mentioning the same. Thanks! :D

    Sweet Rom. I'm having trouble with the camera. It states i need to insert a sd card to use. Also adding the ability to raise the toast higher up would be great. In expanded mode its cut in half because its so low on the screen to begin with. And battery drain seems a little faster than stock.

    I wasn't able to use this ROM as my phones screen would quit receiving touches every 20 minutes or so requiring a reboot. I would've pulled a log but I was at work and needed a working phone call immediately. May try again this weekend.

    This happened on the 5-21 and 5-22 builds.

    I am running the 5/22 build myself.. It's a you issue.. Not a Rom issue

    Enable the storage permission in the camera app and it'll work fine

    I just managed to get a brand new sealed PH-1 for $250. I want to install the candy ROM on it. Was wondering if with this ROM you can hide all your status bar icons and have a nice clean look with nothing showing there? Also it's been a while since I have used a ROM on my phone, is it still uisng TWRP and flashing?

    I just managed to get a brand new sealed PH-1 for $250. I want to install the candy ROM on it. Was wondering if with this ROM you can hide all your status bar icons and have a nice clean look with nothing showing there? Also it's been a while since I have used a ROM on my phone, is it still uisng TWRP and flashing?

    I'd say it's very likely that you will be able to hide all of the status bar icons on this ROM. It's typically a normal feature that all of the Essential custom ROM's implement.

    Yes, TWRP is used for flashing ROM's, as well as gapps and Magisk (if needed). However, if you aren't familiar with a/b partitions/slots, then you will need to do some reading on how to have everything working properly. It becomes easy once you get the hang of it.

    You will definitely want to check the OP to see the installation instructions. Once you have have TWRP installed and working properly, this is the flashing procedure: Flash ROM > Flash the TWRP zip file > reboot recovery > Flash gapps and Magisk if needed > reboot to the slot the ROM is installed to in TWRP. You may experience one bootloop if you flash Magisk, and that's normal. These files need to be on your phone's internal storage.

    I highly recommend reading the OP's, and search around if you have any issues, from the links below. Some ROM's don't include gapps. Recommended is opengapps nano. ARM64 and Android 9.0. https://opengapps.org/

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/es...official-twrp-3-2-3-0-essential-ph-1-t3840931 (you will always want to have the two different TWRP files on your PC and phone's internal storage to be safe).

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/essential-phone/development/stock-7-1-1-nmj20d-t3701681 (in case you run in to any issues, you can download and flash patched OTA's or run back to stock [BTS] files from your PC. I always do the BTS full wipe method for a completely fresh, clean install. And definitely read the 2nd and 3rd points in the OP about safely unlocking your bootloader).

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/essential-phone/how-to/guide-how-to-install-twrp-root-t3841922 (this will get you going with TWRP. If the touchscreen isn't registering in TWRP at first, then read post 2 in that thread and follow those instructions. Make sure to download/install the Essential drivers and adb/fastboot files, and extract each to the same folder on your PC before running any commands or trying to flash files. I also recommend adding any other files to that same folder [OTA's, BTS files, rom, gapps, Magisk, etc]. Be sure USB Debugging is enabled beforehand, as well).

    Note: The provided USB-C cable with the phone does not play nicely with a PC. You will want to get a third party cable for connecting to a PC, transferring files, etc. The provided cable is primarily used for only charging the phone. Here's what I use, and it works flawlessly for PC use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DC52K2G/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_i_8cdlDb55V7TJK

    If you mean expanded desktop then yes
