Notes:
  • Don't ask for PE+ builds as they will come later in time. In the past, PE team took nearly four months to release the first builds of PE+ after releasing regular PE builds. Based on PE's team predictions, it should arrive in a month or so!
  • Use the slim variant if you have a small system partition (without Drive, Gmail, Maps, Photos, Recorder, Wallpapers and Google app)
  • Finally, take in consideration phh's notes that should also apply here:
  • This is a pre-release. This is not considered daily-drivable, though your mileage may vary.
  • As you'll notice, there is no A-only variant at the moment. It is still undecided whether A-only variants will later appear.
  • If you want unshared_blocks/read-write system, use vndklite variants. Non-vndklite devices are capable of running vndklite variants.

Hello I'm facing major issue in this GSI. Can't pull status bar quick toggles, developer options disabled showing "developer options not available for this user", gesture navigation buttons not working, recent apps always showing empty. Needed to know if this is known issue. I guess this happening because after fresh installation this didn't show setup wizard similar issue to this article.

This GSI is running fine on my a71 but when I try to get into recovery, it just gets stuck on the logo screen and reboots and boots into twrp again but still stuck on the logo screen. This happens until I hard reset device. After I hard reset I boot fine into the gsi

This is outstanding ... Went from stock Android 10 somewhere last week, to your Pixel+ GSI to now a Pixel 12 GSI on my Galaxy Note 9 (Exynos) with what i can see so far is 0 issues (auto brightness excepted ( i need to help fix that with an overlay i suspect )). Great work and many thanks to you and @phhusson for keeping this old fella up to date !! Android has been fun again the past week :)

Im not seeing the GPU glitches either mentioned on phh's github for Samsung unless the workaround is already applied..

Thanks !!!!

I have not applied any workaround. I just don't see any glitches. I also guess monet theming is in place as its a part of A12.. you can change stuff relating colors in the settings, not paid much attention to that though.

Yeah can someone help with auto brightness on Samsung devices ? Also root a S10 is kind of a pain, even going in recovery take few tries with buttons combinations. Boring stuff

Works well on moto g 5g plus!
Thank you for your work :)

I think the old version of TWRP published on XDA for nairo does't work on android 12 anymore because it bootloops.

EDIT: Also the aux isn't working, I've tried using the patches in settings for huawei devices and also connecting a usb-c dongle to aux but it's not working either.
I hope there will be a patch together with huawei for motorola phones but i guess they have less development going on.

There might be both overlays for nairo and audio drivers(i think) on the omnirom project.

EDIT2: SOLVED both problems, i created a guide to fix both here

I`m new to GSI, more like used to old school ROM installing and crap. I wonder if after installing this ROM on my treble-compatible device (which has worked perfectly fine for other people on YouTube):

1. Any new updates from this alpha stage will be rolled out automatically over the air or do I have to update manually reflashing, etc? How would that happen?

2. Google`s security updates, like the one released today will be installed over this build or that is part of another process?

Thank you!

1. No GSIs have user-facing OTA yet. Flash manually all the time.
2. As part of flashing/updating the GSI itself.

    Just pointing out if no one tests, no one gets a stable....thats how things get done :)

    sometimes its not about the indivdual, its about the many

    ive tested more ROM's than most people have had hot dinners over the years (at one point 3-4 ROM's a week), a lot of it was to help devs and be part of the community, give back

    devs and testers accept there will always be a part of the userbase who just want to enjoy the spoils without lifting a finger, and thats fine

    but its probably best if you dont vocalise "I have no intention of trying PE 13 until there is a stable release" as it doesnt make people making the sacrifices like you very much :)

    just a tip....
    I understand your POV. They are free to make that choice, if they wish. Noone is holding a gun to their head, forcing them to try betas. However, I need my device to be stable, more than anything. Which is why I usually only run stable releases.

    And right now, I'm not in a position to try any GSIs, for a few days, at least. I have just switched my main device, still getting used to it before I get into the bootloader unlocking, etc.

    For those that wish to make this choice, I commend them. As for me, I will most likely set up PE 12 as my primary GSI, while also dual booting PE 13 via DSU Sideloader as a secondary ROM.

    there are alpha builds on github availible now. you can go check em out. may not boot for you. i just wanted to say they booted for me because i thought they were not supposed to boot on mediatek devices since it was crossed out. anyways thanks!
    It probably would boot for me, since I have a Snapdragon CPU, not Mediatek.

    But I won't run alpha versions, I need Android to be stable on my device, since it's my daily driver. I'd rather let others try it out and deal with the bugs, while I wait on a stable release.

    Wait the beta or 414? 415 just bootloops on my jelly-2

    PixelExperience_arm64-ab-13.0-20220929-UNOFFICIAL.img

    this one. is front camera working for you on ANY gsi rom? mine doesn't.

    EDIT: be aware that you need to start with stock android 10 (not 11). it's not working on 11.
