the values of the detected battery are wrong,the screen diagonal indicates 10 inches
Settings -> Display -> Display size and text -> I then set Display size to max on an 8" model. It seems the wrong thing but it makes all the writing and controls a good size.
But I am using the LineageOS version and have not used the Pixel Experience version for a while.

I have switched over from LineageOS

Just for those reading this thread and wondering.

I did a clean install and did not restore anything. I then spent an hour in Playstore adding back all my most used apps and logging into accounts. So an absolutely clean install. I also used Fastboot to install twrp-4.19-3.7.0_9-clover-20221007-0724 before installing this ROM. I also added the camera apk that sabar has posted for download. I do not use Magisk.

Autorotate works in all my apps, but not on the lock screen (as has been discussed). Not something I care about my lockscreen is just black. Playstore is certified. Netflix is installable and indeed runs fine. Netflix is in SD as is always the case but on an 8" screen SD looks good.

WiFi runs at the full speed of my Internet connection, so close to 100Mbps. My connection is via a 5Ghz channel. 4G LTE runs at about 50Mbps which is only limited by my reception. Bluetooth works and my Creative headphones default to aptX HD. I have a Bluetooth DAC for my HiFi and it connects via LDAC for the best bluetooth connection you can have. My wired headphone and microphone work as well.

Microphone works and I can run Duolingo without problems (something that I have not been able to do for a while).

I use external USB-C drives. They work. They also work via the Google Files app, which was not always the case. I have a 256GB microSD card inserted and set as external storage. It works fine.

GPS locks on quickly. No issues. Compass apps and SkyMap work as they should. Google Maps and maps.me work as they should.

I have a Google One account and the Google VPN is installed and running. I also have Avira anti malware installed - the free version.

I use Google Authenticator and was able to use the camera to read the QR codes from inside the app. Google Lens works and will capture an image and look for results.

All in all a very polished product this early on in development. Apart from a rotating lock screen I do not see much that needs fixing. Some have issues with the camera but mine works well enough with the apk file on the download page. For me the camera is only for using as a QR scanner, Google Translate and Google Lens and it will never get used for actual photography.

EDIT: Inware reports that root is hidden. Thus I do not see any problem with using banking apps if you wanted to do that.
EDIT 2: I set screen size to maximum in the settings to make the screen look right and I played with the font size to get it "just right" for me.

Hi i tried installing PE13 on mi pad 4 plus and after flashing in twrp when i reboot, it comes back to twrp straight away, i have tried above solution too that someone told to flash PE13 + NYX kernal still it reboot to twrp,

I was having real trouble with any newer ROMs also doing this on my non-plus 8-inch Mi Pad 4.

What worked for me was to download and flash the stock MIUI ROM from https://mifirmware.com/mi-pad-4-firmware/ and then finally flashing PixelExperience_clover-13.0-BETA-20220913-1445-UNOFFICIAL.zip worked.

You do not install GAAPS in Pixel Experience. The whole point of Pixel Experience is that is mimics the Google Pixel.

I cannot test call recording. I would never use a tablet to make phone calls. My SIM is data only.
my bad. actually asked in wrong thread. the gapps question pertained to LOS Rom.

Hi sabar, I saw on your sourcecode repo a final version 20221031 that it is not the one on the first post, is it the one for Mi Pad 4 8" you mentioned? Thank you in advance.

    Latest update, see 1st post.
    Note : need to change dpi to 596 dpi to get launcher works.
    1
    Thank you for mentioning this. But it did not help with me. I tried all kinds of dpi settings, as well as the suggested 596 dpi at first. Then I played around with the settings you suggested. Bigger, smaller made no difference in behaviour of pixellauncher. It frequently crashes. And even when it stopped, a few seconds later there's again a popup where it says that launcher stopped working.

    For the next time, I'll stay with the last version from December. This one works good and since I'm using Nova launcher, I can live with the misaligned Status bar icons and search bar from pixel launcher.
    The older version some time gives me System UI issue... And corrupt the system. I could not take it anymore.. then the below steps and it work. But I follow by using the recommended TWRP to flash. Maybe you want too try it?

    1. Setup the previous version and logged into the desktop.
    2. Make sure the Display Size is correct at 3rd level/ in the middle.
    3. Flash the latest version

    Just flashed the latest PE, Launcher stopped at setup page, and when finishing the setup, it gave me black home screen, and launcher stop working pop up.

    will try the late 2022 version, and report back

    UPDATE: the late 2022 works great except I have the same icon overlay problem as @don.peugot, other works great so far

    I flashed this version:
    PixelExperience_clover+-13.0-20221111-0208-UNOFFICIAL.zip

    UPDATE2: I successfully solveed the icon overlay problem by install the magisk-pe-taskbar-fix module via Magisk (PS, Only installing the magisk in the TWRP can give it root access)
    1
    Great news.
    If you don't mind, would you please explain how to install Magisk? I am starting to think that my inability to format data is related to TWRP losing its root access.

    I am trying to revert back to PixelExperience_clover+-13.0-20221111-0208-UNOFFICIAL.zip without any luck so far.

    I ran it for a while with one problem: the UI and many apps are always crashing.
    I had no problem to flash the PE ROM

    As for the Magisk, I downloaded the latest magisk apk from their website, then changed the file format to .zip, and copied it to my MiPad4Plus

    I then rebooted to the recovery, TWRP, installed the magisk.zip, I also did a cache clean, not sure if this helps.

    I then rebooted into android, then tapped the magisk that just installed, it gave the update papup stating something like "this is not the lastest blah blah, will update blah blah", I then tapped yes.

    After few seconds, magisk finished the update, I install the overlay fix over the module function in magisk

    Hope this helps

    Fingerprint Registration does not work for my Mipad4+ (stops after several touches)
    Same here. Finger print enrollment doesn't work. Using clover+
    Aside from that and some screen transition artefacts, this ROM rocks

    Hmmm...Thanks to confirm it...I will check it...

    aside from the FP registration error, i just noticed the improvement on the audio on this initial android 13 build. Tried it on wired, bluetooth, and bulit in speakers. I dont know what's changed but it really sounds great.

    The FP will be fixed on next build.
