Hello everyone!

I had the weird phone-shutting-down-when-30%-battery-left bug for a while with stock ROM, then I installed PE and life was good again! However, for a couple of weeks (I'd say two updates), this issue is back.

Basically, when the phone is around 30% battery left, it will shut down randomly as if there's no battery left. Especially if I open the camera app (or if I open the camera from inside any app). The weird part is that if I plug the phone in while off, the screen reads 30% (or whatever battery I had left when it shut down). If I turn the phone on again while plugged, it reads 30%, but if I turn it on unplugged, it will read 1% or 2%.

This, coupled with the fast battery depletion, is making me think about going back to stock for a couple of weeks/months until the Pixel 5A is available in Canada or this issue is fixed/addressed.

Does anyone experience these issues as well? Is there anything I can try to fix them?

Thank you!!!

Yes! I have something like that too. Likewise, you just need to turn on the camera apps with this amount of battery and the phone suddenly dies. I have no idea how to prevent this from happening.

Your battery life is (almost) over. You need to either replace battery or replace phone... Or have a portable battery charger handy.

Then your last resort is going to TWRP and using the shell to input the following commands:

Google Pixel/XL (128GB):

sgdisk --delete=33 /dev/block/sda
sgdisk --delete=34 /dev/block/sda
sgdisk --delete=35 /dev/block/sda
...
The process on the guide didn't work for me, but this fixed it after getting ErrorCode::kPostInstallRunnerError.

The ROM works great, I've been using it for 2 days and I haven't encountered any problems yet. Kudos to @PixelBoot and everyone who work on this.

Yes, that's correct. It mocks the identity of a Pixel 5, I think it's for the purpose of passing the security check done by banking apps among others, but as far as photo backups go it's still an OG Pixel, and free unlimited storage in original quality still applies.

please help me, i run the command adb sideload and get an error
The "adb server is out of date." error means, you have multiple copies of adb.exe on your computer:
- Do you have SDK Platform-tools r31.0.3 installed?
- If yes, do a search with a file manager for adb.exe and delete all adb.exe but the one in the Platform-tools folder/directory.

Just installed and am impressed but why it feel slower than lineage os 17 or 18?

I am happy I can use my phone still as its my only phone atm so I need lte data.

Not sure stuff copied over through google backup correctly though. Also wifi wouldnt connect during setup.

So far i like it but wish some of the google bloatware we didnt have to have installed.

I cant even use twrp anymore :(. I try and it borks the entire system. Used to use it fine till November patch.

edit. color seems off, srbg mode in developer settings doesnt work and speaker staticky when recording video on camera and playing it back.

    PixelExperience - UNOFFICIAL | Android 11
    Updated
    : 18/01/2022

    ▪️ Marlin [960MB]

    Changelog:
    • Revert back to original partition table.

    Notes:
    • After further analyzing the performance of the device, it was noted that UFS degradation was present during the use of the new repartitioned table, so therefore this build removes some of the system packages in order to satisfy the stock partition table found on the Pixel.
    • If you currently find yourself on a ROM which required repartition, kindly flash the stock images (https://developers.google.com/android/images) for your respective device to revert to the original partition table.

    Why is the rom discontinued? What happened?
    This is not an official answer by any means, but I'm guessing it is because the group as a whole is discontinuing Android 11 variants, and I have not seen any work done for Android 12 on OG Pixel(XL) devices. So, if support were to be continued, the mantainer is venturing into potentially uncharted waters.

    As for if Android 12 can be ported to OG Pixel(XL) devices, I'm not certain, but considering it is coming up on its fifth year, the entire development community around it may have moved on to later more relevant devices.

    In addition to the above, majority of maintainers do this in their spare time, so I would guess if they maintain multiple devices, their priorities are currently with other phones rather than a nearly 5 year old phone.

    Hello, I have followed the guide until the ROM flashing step and I am stuck with the next error message:

    "Error applying update: 28 (ErrorCode::kDownloadOperationExecutionError)
    E:Error in /sideload/package.zip (status 1)"

    I have tried flashing either the Plus and the normal versions of Android 11 for marlin device.

    Can you help me, please?
    I have the same issue.

    Background: I went through the installation process successfully once. I had problems post-install however, it said no SIM inserted and I suspected a botched restore from Titanium Backup (didn't realize until too late that it's an abandoned app). So I decided to try to re-install the zip, which failed. I looked through the recovery logs and saw "no space left on device", so I perfomed a new factory reset. Still the same. So I repartitioned, then factory reset, then install zip. Still the same. So I go to step 1 and flash boot, reboot recovery, repartition, factory reset, install zip. Still the same.

    So at this point the phone is un-bootable, and I can't see how I can get it back to a working state. Any suggestions?

    EDIT: Sorry, just saw this https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...xperience-aosp-official.4247199/post-84661869
    Going to try that!

    EDIT2: YES! It worked! So for anyone else experiencing the "kDownloadOperationExecutionError" (like @ogossorio), this is what I did:

    1. Download TWRP (twrp-3.5.1_9-0-marlin.img) from https://dl.twrp.me/marlin/
    2. Boot phone into bootloader mode
    3. Temporarily boot TWRP: fastboot boot twrp-3.5.1_9-0-marlin.img
      1. If you can't reach your phone with adb while in TWRP, try disabling MTP under "Mount"
    4. Start adb shell and perform the steps described for your phone from PixelBoot's post
    5. Power off your phone
    6. Boot into bootloader mode
    7. Flash PE recovery: fastboot flash boot PixelExperience_Plus_marlin-11.0-20210317-1910-OFFICIAL.img
    8. Boot into recovery
    9. Factory reset
    10. Flash PE: adb sideload PixelExperience_Plus_marlin-11.0-20210317-1910-OFFICIAL.zip
    11. Reboot into OS

    This is exactly what I have been doing. Doing it multiple times does not appear to make it more successful. I was following the install guide on the PIxelExperience website precisely.
