Finally all setup, Is there anyway to have pie work on both sides and the bottom? I'm trying to use Pie control / LMT to work on the sides the but "Back" function does not work. I think its being blocked somehow by the PIE built in.
If anyone has any idea how to get pie working on all 3 sides that would complete this ROM.
Thanks!

Ugh. Installed this only to find that there's still NO data connectivity with this ROM on Verizon. Too bad - looks like a nice, smooth, stable ROM. Should've read the WHOLE thread before flashing.

I have verizon and its fine?

Well, all I can say is stock Nougat worked fine. I carefully flashed PA and it booted and ran just fine, calls and texts worked fine, but it wouldn't connect to VZW internet. SIM status showed phone and data as in service, but internet status on the same screen was perpetually "Connecting".

I even reflashed stock, booted (with good lte), then flashed PA again with identical dataless results.

I'm now on the last Dirty Unicorns Nougat release and it's running well and has full data.

I've been flashing Android ROMs for years, so I don't think I made any newb mistakes. Searching this thread I see at least two cases where others met the same fate.

Ah, okay. I'm not rom expert myself. Just have Verizon on and unlocked pixel. And everything been fine here.

I'm not running this ROM but on previous phones and ROMs with similar issues I had to change from global in the preferred network section of cellular network and/or adjust the apn associated/being used. I haven't read what others have tried but maybe that'll help get it to connect.

Make sure your APN is correct. Had to type mine in manually cause it didn't come up.

I did compare the APN to my old Nexus 6P and a few posts here on XDA, and it was correct. I didn't attempt to edit it at that point.

At this point I'm happy with Dirty Unicorns, and I know development has halted on Nougat ROMs, so this is all probably moot at this point.

We’re really excited to announce that we are releasing our Nougat flavour of Paranoid Android. We have a lot in store - with a mix of both features & improvements.

First & foremost, we have moved our code base to be fully CAF based. This brings many improvements to your device. The key improvement here is that Qualcomm hardware is better tuned on the CAF base and with our additional optimisations we can provide a smooth and fluid user experience that will let you enjoy using your device without any lags.

On first launch you’ll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson who’s teamed up with us again and created several beautiful pieces of artwork. For those of you who don’t know, Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work stands itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We have also added several new features and made improvements to the UI of the system that we believe would enhance the overall experience.

Pie
We’ve been working hard on redesigning this key feature of our portfolio and we’re really happy with how it has turned out. The whole design has been reworked and it fits in well with the overall feel of Google’s Material Design. This gives you the opportunity to use more gesture based control for navigating, rather than using the standard Navigation Bar at the bottom of your screen. Expect improvements and additions in the future.

Color Engine
We’re proud to announce our newest feature - Color Engine. Color Engine allows you to seamlessly change the colors of your device to be in Light, Dark (Pixel) and Black modes with a variety of accent colors to choose from. This makes changing the theme of your device really quick without having to install any extra packages on your device.

Major features:
- Reworked Pie
- Color engine
- Immersive mode
- Buttons customization (including navigation bar)
- On the spot controls (OTS)

Minor features:
- SafetyNet Compatibility
- Battery/Notification LED control
- Recent tasks locking
- Battery icon customization
- Google now page in default launcher
- Substratum (OMS) support (Color engine will be deactivated if you use Substratum)
- Quick pulldown
- Various performance and battery improvements
- Display Burn-in protection (for OLED screens)
- More to explore :)

Device specific features for OP3(T) (List is being updated):
- Oneplus 3(T) custom camera HAL: Resulting in better picture quality than OEM.
- Implemented custom picture background processing leading to very fast shutter speed (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
- Offscreen gestures
- sRGB support (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
- Alert slider customization
- aptX and aptXHD support
- Specific device performance and battery optimizations (details on this coming)

Note: Custom kernels are explicitly unsupported and will cause issues
unless they state that they are AOSPA compatible or AOSPA based!

    I dropped a comment in the spreadsheet. Other than those two things I noticed, this thing is super smooth. It is disappointing because I use OK google quite often

    Joined your comment on the bug report as well, maybe the more people we can get to join in, the quicker they'll notice it's severity. It's the only thing holding this back from being my DD at the moment, I use ok Google multiple times a hour

    Haha. That's totally fine. If I get home after work before you get them to me, I'll probably just pull all the ones I need from my wife's 5X.
