copy-partitions-payton.zip thanks: filipepferraz
firmware: sourceforge | afh
retin firmware: Download
TWRP Download 3.4.0.0 version recommended.
Creating new persist and efs partitions backup in new TWRP is required since older backups are not compatible with new TWRP. Do not restore old backup with new TWRP!!

Pixel Experience Plus features can be found here.
After first installation, in twrp you will get a No OS installed message (or something similar). That is due to A/B partition scheme and completely normal, ignore that message.
Reporting bugs: if you notice any bugs, first remove magisk completely and see if the bug persist then report and i will gladly help you.
Do not report any bugs if you are not on the latest version! update, and if the problem still persist then report and i will gladly help you.

If on the proper October Firmware, do you need to boot to TWRP recovery to format data before rebooting again and wiping/installing this ROM?

The safetynet pass is working perfectly on mine and the screen mirroring is working as well.
are you using magisk to avoid the safetynet pass?,I've not installed magisk.

When I active screen mirroring and conect with my TV my cellphone boots and restart itself.
I've done a clean installation, everything is working fine except this.

install safetynet test app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.freeandroidtools.safetynettest and you'll see that everything is okay. and for screen mirroring, send logs otherwise i can't know what's up. thank you!

    Since everyone keeps asking how do you install this ROM; I decided to make a guide for the newbies that are here. :)



    Code:
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     */




    How to install Pixel Experience on Moto X4
    !! Please read before proceeding !!

    • Download the latest Official TWRP https://dl.twrp.me/payton/. - You want the .img file and .zip file for later.
    • Restart your phone to your bootloader. - You do this by pressing and holding both your phone's power button and the lower volume key at the same time.
    • Once at your phone's bootloader, from your Windows Command Prompt (as administrator) or from your Linux Terminal (as root) run the following command to load TWRP:

    Code:
    fastboot boot '/your_path_here/twrp-X.X.X-X-payton.img'

    Note: Be sure to use your path on where you have the file on your computer. Be sure to replace and use the correct file name for your file (Do not just copy and paste the example posted here).

    !! You will be wiping everything because regardless if you are coming from stock or a different ROM as this ROM works best with a full wipe (as is true with any ROM) !!
    Note: If upgrading this ROM a full wipe is not necessary. See upgrade instructions below.​

    • Regardless of what ROM you are coming from (stock or not), format your DATA.
    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.
    • Regardless of what ROM you are coming from (stock or not), select "advanced wipe" to wipe your device (select all partitions).
    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.

    If coming from stock:


    Code:
     adb push copy-partitions-payton.zip /sdcard/

    • Now INSTALL "Copy Partitions Zip"
    • Reboot to your bootloader. - Stay at the bootloader screen (do not load TWRP)
    • Download the firmware for your phone (pick a single mirror from the links below)
    • Unzip on your computer.
    • Flash your phone using the correct file (see details below)


    Firmware courtesy of @trpsl
    flash_all_fi = Google Fi firmware
    flash_all_ret = Retail firmware

    • IF Microsoft Windows: type in cmd flash_all_fi.bat - OR - flash_all_ret.bat (depending on your device variant)
    • IF Linux (as root) / Apple Mac: type in terminal flash_all_fi.sh - OR - flash_all_ret.sh

    NOTE: In Linux you may need to change your permissions to the files as well.

    1. Mirror: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261627285
    2. Mirror: https://sourceforge.net/projects/tr..._9.0_PPW29.69-39-6_firmware-only.zip/download

    Reboot your phone to bootloader



    Continue:

    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.
    • Download and locate the latest ROM located here: https://download.pixelexperience.org/payton/
    • You will upload these files to your phone using the "ADB PUSH" command to your /sdcard/ directory (as admin in windows or root in Linux). For example:

    Code:
    adb push  PixelExperience_payton-10.0-xxxx-xxxx-OFFICIAL.zip  /sdcard/
    You will also wish to upload the TWRP zip file too for future recovery options
    Code:
    adb push  twrp-installer-xxxx-payton.zip  /sdcard/
    Note: Be sure to use your path on where you have the file on your computer. Be sure to replace and use the correct file name for your file (Do not just copy and paste the example posted here).

    • In TWRP select Install
    • Locate your .ZIP file and proceed with the install of the ROM
    • Locate your .ZIP file and proceed with the install of TWRP


    NOTE: Do NOT install Gapps as Gapps is already installed with this ROM.​

    • After a successful install, REBOOT your phone.

    Congratulations, you're done! :cool:

    Magisk



    Magisk will provide you with root access (optional). You can obtain a copy of Magisk here https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk You will want your ROM to boot at least once before installing Magisk.

    However, if you end up in a boot loop as a result of installing this ROM, and you previously were using Magisk in the previous ROM before installing this ROM, simply load TWRP and flash Magisk and that should correct the boot loop.



    UPGRADING - How to upgrade this ROM.


    Also known as a dirty upgrade, you do not need to wipe everything and start over. However, if this dirty upgrade fails a fresh install is recommended.

    • Download the latest ROM
    • Reboot into recovery
    • Install your new .zip file for your ROM
    • Install your new .zip file for TWRP
    • Install Magisk if you were using it (or which to use it)
    • Wipe cache/dalvik
    • Reboot
    If all has gone well you're done! If not, a full wipe and install are recommended.





    Gapps Alternatives


    Additionally, if you're one of those people who want to use additional apps beyond Google Play limitations (such as regional or device restrictions) you have the following alternatives.
    1. https://apkpure.com/
    2. https://en.uptodown.com/android
    3. https://f-droid.org
    Just remember that these are unofficial sources and you take the risk that can potentially come with them.

    oh i see it now. anyways i never linked anyone to mirrors.lolinet so not really much i can do if someone is not following my instructions. everything i post and share with others is tested by myself and if those instructions are being followed properly everything must be fine. as i said i test everything before i share.

    Fair enough. In any case, I've posted a step by step guide that should, in theory, be idiot-proof

    Good day,
    Many thanks for the great Rome to the developer trpsl. Everything works fine. :good::)

    On PixelExperience Web there are two Android 10 versions, the (Plus edition) and the normal edition, where is the difference between the two. :confused:

    Best wishes

    plus edition is still under development and it will come with more customizations and features
