About Android 13 QPR1​

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.

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.

Awesome. Switched to qpr1 beta 3 a few days after it came out and was a little buggier than I expected it would be... Mainly camera/media related... Looks like a lot of these fixes listed in the minor update should address them.

Apparently patching the Pixel 7 Pro boot image and flashing that patched boot image on the Pixel 6 Pro works for root as a temporary workaround.

Has anyone here tested the 64-bit-only builds? Do they receive OTAs as well or each and every update is manual? What happens at the end of the QPR beta period, does it switch to stable or is it stuck until a new beta is out? I've looked through the official info but this isn't specified.
If it doesn't get OTAs and/or has "blackout" periods where no updates are released it could be an issue even for me.

You get stuck until new beta. I was on the last beta, but not enrolled and two days ago I flashed the stable December factory image without -w and everything is working fine.

So after trying my best to figure out how to get root back on my phone after taking the QPR2 Beta 1 update, I finally figured it out!

Unfortunately, if you're taking the update as an OTA, you will lose your root. Even if you try to downgrade back to the previous OTA, you will still be unable to get root access. It's like it just completely breaks. I tried every single thing I could do without having to do a fresh wipe of the phone... but unfortunately, it just doesn't seem like it's possible.

So finally, I caved and decided to download the full Factory Zip file of the new QPR2 Beta 1 update. I flashed it and wiped everything as well (kept the -w in the flash-all.bat). Then I downloaded the lastest Magisk Canary (25205) and did what people were reporting to work, which was patch the boot.img from the Pixel 7 Pro, and flashed that through fastboot.

Finally, I have root again! Hope this helps anyone else out there figure it out. Feel free to message me if you have any questions!

Can't you just download and install the ota, but DON'T press reboot, instead go into magisk and select the install option 'install to inactive slot (after ota) and then reboot?
Yep, that's exactly what I did. I always use that method when taking updates so that I can retain my root. But I lost my root regardless.

    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 😂

    • An issue with the System UI can sometimes cause the Home screen to become unresponsive.

    Google Apps​

    • 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.
