Hi @npjohnson , could you also check the call volume please when testing?

I have the volume turned up but it seems very low. Not sure if thats something that can be fixed?

Cheers,

@npjohnson Hi Mate, just installed the latest version of Walleye Unofficial 19th.

So, the playstore is showing not cert but Google Wallet seems to be working. Is that normal?
I thought it at least would show its certified......anyway

Have noticed some screen flicker when scrolling socials. Other than that, it's very snappy and is working well.

ALso, is this medium ok for us to notify you of issues or is there something else?

Thanks again 😍

Certified doesn't equal safetynet.

We pass safetynet.

Yup fine to report issues here.

Since last update, setting services issues.
Not all the time, just reboot and everything seems fine.
 
@npjohnson the vibration intensity is too strong and make weird noise on LOS 19.1 and 20. Especially when receive chat notification or receive call..
Can you look into it?
One of Android 13's new features is being able to modify vibration intensity in Settings. It's possible that it's at 100% by default.


I have found it to be lower, yes.
I'll monitor and return with more details.
Do you have more details now?


No, and they will keep going monthly.
Hmm... what would make me choose one over the other? I see you're LOS developer. How will your version differ from the official one once it gets released (and in the future if you have plans)?\

EDIT: formatting

Gapps built in and pixel goodies plus bleeding edge device changes.
Thanks for clarification, but I don't fully understand "bleeding edge device changes". Does it mean the official LOS will be stable, while your version will be experimental?

Anyhow, today I gave LOS 20 a try. Here comes, I suspect, the first failed installation of your ROM (and it had to be me... because of course!):

With its custom recovery successfully installed, the recovery screen showed a suspicious spam of errors not mentioned in the guide when I tried sideloading the zip from my computer through USB:
compressed.jpg

Transcription:
Code:
ERROR:    recovery: Failed to read 16777216 bytes data at offset [9-10 random digits here]: I/O error
Code:
ERROR:   recovery: error: 21

Fastboot shows:
Code:
serving: 'lineage-20.0-20221119-UNOFFICIAL-walleye.zip'  (~6%)    adb: failed to read command: No error

I pressed Yes anyway, assuming all these errors could be from the verification error. The device ended up stuck on the white Google startup screen with an open padlock and I restarted after 30 minutes. The bootloader shows this:
ERROR: Slot Unbootable: Load Error

By the way, the guide says "NOTE: If you want the Google Apps add-on on your device, you must follow this step before booting into LineageOS for the first time!" but you've mentioned your version included pre-installed Gapps.

EDIT: these errors were being caused by the computer I was using.

Latest build installed : 12/12/2022 on walleye.

When i click an application, i have loss of screen sensitivity for a couple of seconds before it comes alive.
Previous installs didn't have this.

Other than that, everything works great. 👌

@npjohnson
Even when unlocking, either from code or finger print - it sometimes takes a while to 'Wake up'

Also when plugging the charger in, the animation freezes, screen goes black than back to clock. sometimes without the battery % and charging info down the bottom.

    Also, version 20 uses a different camera API. You can read more information below. Actually have used it on one of my other P2's and it's not too bad. I still prefer the ported Gcam though.

    You're confused - that's not how that works. CameraX is just the backend library used for Camera applications - Google Camera uses parts of CameraX. It also has software processing added by Google.

    So, CameraX doesn't effect us at all except prettier camera app.

    Good Day @npjohnson and very much appreciate the work on bringing LOS to the Pixel2. I know you've assisted with standing up the official LOS V20 on other hardware platforms (ie. Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, etc) I'm curious if you had any insight on how the project is going. Certainly providing an ETA is probably out of scope, but perhaps a general statement on how things are going. If there are any major gotcha's, or if things are just generally progressing as normal. I'd like to consider installing the official release, but would might consider the unofficial release if we believe it'll be some time. TIA

    ESIM is broken and physical SIM sometimes flakes out - no clue why.

    npjohnson, thanks for your effort with the Pixel 2. I had a trouble free install and everything that I have tried, but Android Auto works well. AA gets stuck on the new vehicle startup process and looks for a location. Then it shuts itself down after that. As I use AA a lot on a Toyota screen in my car, it's key to me. Hopefully this can be fixed moving forward.

    Hi @npjohnson , I've just downloaded your latest build for lineageos 20.
    I'm getting the same Error BootLinux error.
    When i follow the guide, it won't allow me to boot into the latest '....20' recovery.

    Thankyou for all your work.

    I even tried installing your latest 19.1 and following the upgrade guide. ADB reboot sideload, adb sideload package ....20.

    I had the error about downgrading, but after installation, same error at bootloader
    Working on it, should be an easy fix.

    taimen works fine
