Question ProtonAOSP 12.1 from @kdrag0n early access is worth it...

Search This thread
You install one of two ways. Install through a browser which is recommended by developer or download and flash like the normal factory image. Also, there is a vanilla version and a Gapps version. No custom recovery needed. Once installed, gaining root was same process as we use on factory OS.

Disclaimer, device data will be wiped when installing OS and of course wiped a second time when rooting (disabling verity and verification).

Yes, you need to unlock bootloader to install ProtonAOSP. Root is not needed. Concerning features, @VozerCozer's review gives a good overview.
 
do we have a tutorial how to unlock bootloader?? i would like to install this rom .. I think its stable enough
Google's instructions are the best. Here: https://developers.google.com/android/images

Two things. One, unlocking your bootloader wipes your data. Two, when you install ProtonAOSP, your device will be wiped again.

Even though these are for the Pixel 6 Pro, the steps are the same, it's a good source.

and


Hope it helps.

No problem. I'm not using Proton now. Flashed back to stock so I could install @eng.stk blu_spark kernel last night. IMHO, one of the best kernels.

Given that, the ROM is very stable.

Too early to say.

To open up the ability to tweak some things to squeeze better battery life.

ProtonAOSP is different.

Cannot recall if you can remove the bottom navigation bar, but you do have the ability to select 2 button, 3 button or gesture navigation.

Been using blu_spark on 3 or 4 devices over the last 5+ years.

    Hey OP, I wrote a small review of this ROM on reddit. I've been using ProtonAOSP on the Pixel 6 for about 5 days now and I can say that I quite like it.

    I'm not too sure how the forums takes kindly to linking off site, but if a moderator feels this message should be removed I understand.

    There's early access to ProtonAOSP 12.1 if anyone is curious. Installed this morning and it is very nice. Huge fan of the theming capabilities. Of course, you need to be a patron of his, but IMHO it's worth it.

    Hope this does not offend @kdrag0n, but thought all should know about this great work.

    Anyone else try ProtonAOSP 12.1 out yet?

    The light theming is pretty nice
