Was able to install on my Pixel 3a XL successfully! Sadly there was a niche feature that was removed, but i hope as this rom continues to be developed, the feature might be readded. The feature i am referring to is the Now Playing detection, for the ability for the Pixel to hear music that is playing in background and display it on the Always On Display. Other than that, this is a solid rom. I would give it a 9/10 regardless because LineageOS is a good rom nonetheless.

Well I am not having as much luck... I keep getting errors
Android system intelligence keeps stopping
This is with the UNOFFICIAL buld from the 21st

Also there does not appear to be any theming colors other then the deafault ones found in stock android. One of the reason I like LOS so much is that gogle does such a horrible job picking allowed theme colors

UPDATE: Loaded the official version and while I dont have the issue with android system intelligence I no longer can find any way to change theme color. In the custom version I had the options to use the standard google colors, in the stock version those choices simply dont exist. I only see wallpaper options and nothing else.

Is it hidden somewhere else under settings as I cant find it

Also changing system icon type doesnt affect all icons, not sure this may be an issue with pure sock as well

intelligence error will be fixed next build.

As for official not having color selection - yeah, that's a pixel goodies thing.

ok so whats the official party line from LOS for theming as currently there is no way to change accent colors at all. Mine defaults to lime green and I can find no way to change it

That said I dont want to seem negative as for a first build for android 12 everything else seems to work perfectly

On the official build there is no way.

It's monet. Matches AOSP.

With much thanks & appreciation for LOS support for our beloved devices over the years, going back to the early Moto & Nexus days ... here I come, joining soon - my Pixel 3a XL in excellent condition, well cared for and AccuBattery health put it at 97% still, SOT on stock rom of close to 8 hours - not putting this away anytime soon, nor going to trade it for $25 or even $50 (BL unlocked, ready to have fun)

Guess I will just watch the thread till you release your fixed build

UPDATE: forgot stock android theming is horrible. Only 4 colors to pick. Will keep using official with the magisk module for now... and yes I know this makes me unsupported since am using magisk but until LOS implements some kind of theming its really the only choice

There is no recovery zip. Not at all sure where you are looking.

Follow the wiki.

Actually The answers seem to be No and No then. Tried to load yours on top of official and had intelligence errors as well as just general app stoping errors mostly when in settings.

Back on official LOS for now, had to reload with a factory format to get it to work right again. Hope LOS team implements some kind of theming in the near future.
