Manolo's build is already good, other than dt2w isn't working but can be fixed with flashing other kernel.
Question is, what significant differences are there?
Did or will manolo drop his PE and you aiming to replace?

Still, Good to see people still building pe roms and gapps builds.

No why, if he can build with better experience than official, why not?

His build has video recording broken, also his build is based on Los Device Tree and mine on Arrow Based. I have experienced roms based on Arrow device tree are smoother than the ones based on Los. Although this is my personal observation. I think he will drop PE with R releases but I have no plans for replacing him whatsoever.
I was busy with other stuff, so sorry for late reply :)

Note 8T
Overall feels much better than "official" release
Flashed over ResurrectionRemix with data wipe, everything seems good so far except for NFC module (greyed out in quick access menu, nowhere to be found in settings)
Is it just me and I have to do a clean flash or something with ROM? : )

Yes, I know exactly what's causing that. But unfortunately my exams are very near and there is no hotfix for this one. But will try my best to do another build with this thing fixed and will give you a smoother ui experience as compared to this one. Also november security patch is here, so I might do a build this weekend with the fixes.

Cheers, Since eleven is here I'm wondering if you want to take the official on this rom, the guy who stepped in for bad code walk seems to be out of the picture.

Thanks for your kind and humble support ❤️. But only if it was possible. I just got into building roms and arguably this is the first rom that I compiled. I'm glad you all are liking it so far. As for eleven, either a new maintainer would step up, or the past one would improve theirs. And if none of them happen, I'm be still here to do that. We can't replace existing maintainer untill and unless he kangs stuff, else it'll be disrespectful for him/her.
I hope you understand.
Although since Android 11 is still new and in works, I'll release an EOL build with Android 10 which should fix the known issues.

I've built a few ROM's and as long as you keep your dev tree open and kernel stable going it's going to be fine. There are a lot of us that can help out with reviewing, adding and testing. I'm mainly doing C so my thing is mostly just backporting for kernel and making some new solutions.

My personal builds are based on your tree (from your github) but with a few changes that no one else will use anyway because users don't want to learn how to make a swap file on external memory or how to move caches from memory to disk when it isn't ever... ever... ever... used. A bit of that is resolved with the new PSI patches for 11 but that's for a later time.

You take care and trust me, I am nothing if not kind. My main concern originally with the PE dev was that he/she or her family was in trouble, as many are these days. I doubt he'd be "kanging" stuff (which to the best of my understanding is including things proclaiming them as your own in your commits rather than using the actual commits as are and then adding your own commit to fix them if need be). I think that when it comes to FLOSS programming and the Github system we all use we are honest about what we're doing.

I'm sorry just because I am seeing this one too late, was too busy with my school stuff. I just did another build for EOL and if everything goes fine, will release it asap. This time we have a big changelog coming.

I am doing this on my personal server. I can't afford to build two roms at the same time. I am doing PE because that's the one which gives the vanilla feel of a Pixel Device, so in conclusion I won't be able to do PE Plus anytime soon.

I'll build one if you'd like, I already have the Plus downloaded and you did good work on the tree, I'll just assume that the deps are from your Github unless otherwise stated directly in the tree.

I've done my own build already but it takes a bit of knowledge to use it, you have to create a swap file on the SD to use it because it mounts it earlier in the process and uses the swap there, also some changes to the kernel to take advantage of having a true Linux setup with one cache for clean pages and direct cache to disk so you don't have to swap back to what is already in memory or on disk.

The whole system really needs to be reworked but I won't have time to do that until after New Years so it'll have to wait.

Noted changes for pe on your device tree, which kernel are you using for this?

If everything goes well I'd like to try it but please update your device tree to match before release, I'll fork it and add to it but you really have to do a full push that can be used to build it as is.
