I haven't encountered freezes here (yet).

There is a fix for the night light.
But it resets every boot.
"Disable HW overlays" setting in developer settings, disable that setting and the night light will work correctly.

However this fix is annoying and we really do need a better one. Anyone got some info about fixing this?
What worked for me was Twilight, it uses GPU.
About the blue light blinking, Night Light mode also flickers as hell. Turning on "Disable HW overlays" fixes it temporarily.

I don't know of a working GCAM. Main camera can only take up to 16MP pictures using Pixel Experience 11 included camera software (the module is 64MP), but since the front camera is now working, I'm accepting the trade off (I don't use the cameras much anyway).

Managed to get it working. Unusual issue. Had to switch from WiFi to data to log in.
...in case you're having the same problem with WA and Signal.
Once you managed to login to Spotify is it working when you go back to WiFi? Maybe your issue is related to my WhatsApp/Signal problems (if the problem is with WiFi, not the apps).
I rarely use mobile data here (home office WiFi).

While using WhatsApp Web I keep getting the yellow message "Phone Not Connected".
I lost WhatsApp calls because it simply doesn't ring. Messages also don't come through as they should.
Signal messages aren't being notified when they should. When I open Signal to read my messages I see that they've been sent hours ago and I got no notification.

Unlocking my phone isn't enough to "wake up" WhatsApp. I have to open it, and only then does WhatsApp Web synchronize.

I've turned off battery optimization for both WhatsApp/Signal. Now I'll wait and see if that solves the issue.

From my tests so far it seems turning off "battery optimization" for WhatsApp/Signal has solved my problems.

Hi guys, I just flashed newest PE ROM and it's working nicely but I have a problem with colours (mainly red colour). It just keep flashing when refreshing the screen. When I'm not touching it, it's grayed out. It's ok when playing a video.
I tried to record it with an app on Redmi with PE, but it's ok on the video when watching it on a PC. Here's video recorded on my other phone: link.
Any ideas what might be wrong? Thanks!

Try the same fix above for night light. Maybe it'll work for you too.

Hi Guys,
I would like to install the pixel experience 11 plus on my redmi note 8 pro.
This is the first time i try to install a rom and i am having an issue..

After rebooting in recovery mode, (i used the recovery twrp-3.5.0_10-UNIFIED_UNOFFICIAL.img), i could wipe and format the data according to the procedure, but then got stuck in the "Sideload the PixelExperience .zip package" section: i got the following error in my DOS commands:

D:\>adb sideload PixelExperience_Plus_begonia-11.0-20210316-1245-OFFICIAL.zip
adb: sideload connection failed: no devices/emulators found
adb: trying pre-KitKat sideload method...
adb: pre-KitKat sideload connection failed: no devices/emulators found

after getting this error i tried to reboot (using reboot button in the recovery application menu), in order to boot in recovery mode again, in order to see if i could get the sideload method working.

The problem is now i cannot boot to recovery mode anymore.. the phone keeps rebooting..
I can boot into fastboot mode (pressing volume down + power buttons between two automatic reboots) and flash the recovery image again, but i cannot boot into recovery anymore... I tried to use "volume UP+ power" buttons between two automatic reboots without any success..

Would you have any recommendation to help me?

thank you in advance

Bug Report:
System : 11 (plus edition)
Version: 03-16-2021

Mostly try the following steps,the error appears.
1. Link the 3.5 mm earphone
2. play the video, you will hear the sound from earphone
3. when you playing, use power button and volume down to screenshot a photo
4. then you will find the sound is playing, em, from the speaker ,not the earphone.

Thanks.

I just installed it at Friday. First impression: Very nice. Information: I had the problem, after flashing MIUI bootloader was locked again (must unlock first again)...
After flashing TWRP and GoogleExperience i can start using...

First Report from me:
  • fast system, sometimes a little "stuck" (seconds)
  • Volume during call is not working right (in every custom ROM i used (5) this is the biggest issue!
  • Nightlight problem (HW Overlay tip used, than working it!)
  • Problem (still alive) WLAN - i see often just "NVRAM" (problem described in some posts) - but how i can fix it? I don't want now to change MAC or something... Solution?
Thats it. Thanks for developers!
