how do you rollback to qpr1 beta 1? I'm using qpr1 beta 2 but the factory image has a new bootloader version then qpr1 beta 1 package and when I flashed beta 2 I flashed the new bootloader to both slots. do you just flash the old radio and update zip from beta 1's?
You'd have to factory reset to downgrade, so just flash the entire stock QPR1 Beta 1 factory image. You can flash back to any Android 13 version - Stable or Beta. You just can't flash back to Android 12, with the exception of the Google-provided Developer images, which aren't a long-term solution.

Hi guys! I got OTA update to T1B2.220916.004 today. I didn't pay attention before but now I see that in static scenes on my display it's still 120hz refresh rate. Force peak refresh rate of course switched off. It's fixable?
Updt: So, after deep sleep about half hour it's working well.. dynamically changes refresh rate from 60 to 120 depending on what is happening on the screen.

Unfortunately this update has broken a lot of things for me. I'm getting random disconnects - not just in call, sometimes I'll look at my phone and it'll show that I have signal but that I'm not connected. WiFi drops. Bluetooth doesn't connect properly and disconnects a lot, especially to my car radio. I can't get a GPS lock and my phone doesn't know where I am. The phone feels slower and the battery is weaker. I also ran out of data with my cell provider plan this month and that NEVER happens for me, so I suspect something is happening and some background data connection. Android auto is struggling to work and has frozen twice during the map directions. Really disappointed.

I'll give it until Monday to see if a hotfix comes out and then I'll do a wipe. I've found wipes help.

Is battery health tab available on pixel 5 with the latest beta? i seem to not find it under "battery" tab
Since you haven't gotten an answer, you should probably ask in the Pixel 5 area - I don't know if there's a QPR Beta thread there or if you'll have to create your own Question thread.

Sorry i didnt realize this is a P6P thread, unfortunately since i cant find a thread related in pixel 5 i will have to wait and see. One thing i want to ask is what's the version of "settings services" in this build? (my pixel 5 is 1.1.0.476812811 not sure if it has any dfference)

No sweat! Did you see @Lughnasadh's comment above?

I'm not on this build, so I can't answer that. Maybe someone else can.

I tried following the guide on twitter, first downgrading then install the "setttings services" again, but it still doesnt show up. Maybe it's kust not on the 5 or some other reasons🤷🏽‍♂️ Anyways imma do some more research first cuz i dont want to make this thread go off-topic. Thanks🙏🏽

I try to flash the full File without without wipe but not I got the Message:

Cannot load adroid System. Your data may be corrupt.

Try again or Factory data Reset.

See if the Official Google Android Flash Tool (OEM Unlocking needs to be toggled on - you may not have to manually unlock the bootloader - the "site" will do that on its own) supports flashing the QPR1 Beta 2 and make sure the following options are unchecked:
  • Wipe
  • Force Flash all partitions
  • Re-lock Bootloader
The online flash tool has fixed many weird problems that even the factory image zip can't fix.

Back on topic, how is the latest QPR1 Beta 2 running for most on their P6P? I'm on the latest stable and wondering if it's worth it to enroll in the beta. Any bugs?

I've just received a notification for a new A13 QPR beta OTA update:

T1B3.221003.003 weighing in at 130mb. I'm in the USA on T-Mobile network using a P6P.

I'll report back. In the end I didn't do a wipe reset after I complained here a couple weeks ago about poor stability. Things just got better. My main problem is that Android Auto stopped working properly and sometimes GPS can't get a lock, but it's been getting a little better.

Is this beta 3 or a late beta 2 for you?

    About Android 13 QPR2​

    Following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered both to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.
    Although these updates don't include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.
    Unlike developer previews and betas for unreleased versions of Android, these builds are suitable for general use. However, please review any known issues that are listed on this page.
    Android 13 QPR2 builds on the updates in Android 13 QPR1 and the Android 13 initial release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

    How to get QPR2 Beta 2​

    You can install Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 on any of the following Google Pixel devices:

    • Pixel 6a
    • Pixel 7 and 7 Pro
    See Get Android 13 QPR beta builds for details on how to get started.

    General advisories​

    Be aware of these general advisories about the release:

    • Some apps might not function as expected when running on this release. This limitation includes Google's apps as well as other apps.
    • Android 13 QPR beta builds aren't Compatibility Test Suite (CTS)‑approved, but they have passed preliminary testing and provide a stable set of pre-release APIs for developers. Apps that depend on CTS-approved builds or use SafetyNet APIs might not work normally on Android 13 QPR beta builds.

    Does root works fine on new beta?
    You have to use the Pixel 7 Pro boot image to patch, like it was with QPR2 Beta 1.

    Anyone faced the problem of disconnected calls after 20.02 mins?
    My calls get disconnected always after this time period.
    Nope. Calls have been pretty great. Maybe whoever you're talking to can't stand talking to you more than that 😂

    • Fixed an issue where in some cases after a device was plugged in to charge (for example, overnight), the device would become unresponsive until it was rebooted.
    • Fixed a kernel issue with lib/list_debug.c that caused a kernel panic in certain cases on some devices.

    Google rolls out Android 13 Beta 3.3 with a bunch of bug fixes​

    The beta branch of Android 13 just picked up a new bug-squashing update. Following in the footsteps of Android 13 Beta 3’s earlier incremental updates, this new release fixes a whole bunch of issues, including slow UI rendering, inability to connect to a Wi-Fi network, system UI crashes, and a few other problems.
    The build number of Android 13 Beta 3.3 is TPB3.220617.002. There is no change in the security patch level, though, hence it’s still June 2022 on this release. You can find the full list of published fixes in this update below:
    • Fixed an issue with the Pixel launcher where if the Always show keyboard option was enabled for the app drawer, then when the user closed the app drawer and opened an app folder on the Home screen, the keyboard was erroneously shown as well. (Issue #236584457)
    • Fixed an issue where in some cases, such as gesturing to go back, the system UI crashed. (Issue #236558007)
    • Fixed an issue where devices couldn’t connect to a WiFi network in some cases even when the network was available and the signal strength was good. (Issue #236617510)
    • Fixed an issue where the BluetoothManagerService continued to try and bind to the TbsService even when bluetooth.profile.ccp.server.enabled was false, leading to slow performance and cold starts for apps.
    • Fixed an issue where in some cases after a device was plugged in to charge (for example, overnight), the device would become unresponsive until it was rebooted.
    • Fixed a kernel issue with lib/list_debug.c that caused a kernel panic in certain cases on some devices.
    • Fixed an issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager that caused slow UI rendering, unresponsiveness in apps, and poor battery performance in some cases.
    Apart from the aforementioned bug fixes, the update also bumps the Google Play services version from 22.18.19 to 22.21.16.
    In case your Google Pixel device is already enrolled in the Android 13 beta program, you will automatically receive an over-the-air update to Beta 3.3. You can also download the full OTA or the factory image from the link below if you want to manually upgrade to the latest beta release.

    All, this is not a thread for opinions about the Pixel 6/Pro in general, nor is it a thread made for rants. Opinions specifically about Android 13 are fine. I know there have been a few posts that have nothing specific to do with Android 13 and I've let it go. If anyone wants to make posts that don't address anything specifically about Android 13, there are many, many threads in this section where that has taken place.

    I know, because I used to read every post in this section but now I avoid the threads that contain those kinds of posts, and I'd like to not see them here in this thread. Any further posts of those types will be deleted as off-topic.

    I think Magisk removed the need to pass the vbmeta disable verity/verification flag with Canary 24303. Here's a quote related to a kernel issue from yujincheng08 (LoveSy):

    "Let me clarify the things.
    Magisk was used to modify the fstab to inject Magisk components, and in the meantime, Magisk stipped avb_key and avb flags for all partitions. So, that 24300 works is just a side effect and has no insurance.
    Now Magisk changed its way of injecting Magisk components, and it will no longer modify the fstab, and the side effect was thus gone together with the refactorization. Some configurations that rely on the fact that Magisk will strip those verification flags will no longer work, and that's expected. Users should disable the verification themselves since they are expected to have unlocked bootloaders."

    This all relates to problems with custom kernels and Magisk, but may have further implications for us. Check out more in the issue here..

    Good spot. Seeing as how that's now intended behaviour, I guess wiping and disabling verification is all our best moves from here.

    I'll take this moment to suggest investing in Swift Backup and setting up an automatic backup that runs periodically, so long as you have root it makes wiping pretty much a non-issue.
