I recently upgraded firmware from 11.0.1.0 to 12.5.1.0 and since then I'm getting major battery drain on this ROM (latest version). Does anyone know if a full wipe and start from scratch on this ROM will resolve this? Or is this ROM incompatible with the latest firmware? Thanks

I have not updated anything in about 2 months and I am getting a lot of battery drain for a few days. But starting over is not needed as this Rom is discontinued.

I have a big battery drain in last week. My battery go down in few hours. How i can resolve this? 1 month ago any problem of battery drain. Now Is inusable

Seems it's the same for everyone on this ROM, something is going on in the background but no idea what. Guess it's time to try a different ROM, which is a shame as I always love PE

I think I flashed PE+ (A10) back in 2020 and never updated it as it was working fine. Now I decided to update it for the security patches but found out that it got discontinued a month ago.
Did it get discontinued cause the phone is now old or are you working on the A12 version? If you are working on the A12 I guess I can wait another year without updates haha. Thanks for your work guys, I really appreciate it.

the batterydrain is just insane.
i gave up on this one and went with the the official lineage os nightly and mindthegapps.

works perfectly fine no more batterydrain
Wow I thought it just me. I notice the battery going down very fast lately but tbh I thought the replacement battery just gone bad. Never think this is a rom problem that happen to many people too.

Maybe the problem become from last version (I have the some problem too).. Try this version "August 16, 2021".
But Pixel Experience 12 rom, it''s on Alpha stage.. Maybe will have a Lavander rom.. Maybe not.. And Perhaps going to LinageOs will be everyone's choice..

You can block these 2 domains, directly in the hosts file, to stop the data consumption.

Connecting phone to pc with usb cable does not show system partition.
Can someone explain what is Orfox, or how to perform the first two steps?
1. Boot to Orfox
2. Mount "System"

Here is a guide from TheByteBoy, modified and translated by me, and it works!
How to prevent Pixel Experience eating up all your mobile data becouse of System Updates.
Unfortunately it does not prevent batterydrain, constantly trying to download.
I have enabled battery saving mode, which works for me.
Setting usb permission on your smartphone.
Settings, System, Telephoneinfo, Buildnumber, Click multiple times until message: "You are developer".
Settings, System, Developeroptions, enable USB-debugging.
Connect usb cable between smartphone and pc, enable filetransfer.
Open commandprompt as Administrator (C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe).
Go to your folder containing platform-tools_r31.0.0-windows
You can download it from https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
In my case, type the following lines, followed by Enter:
C:
CD "C:\platform-tools"
adb devices
Should give message ZY5347TWED device.
adb pull /system/etc/hosts "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\hosts.txt"
The hosts file is copied from phone to pc desktop.
Edit hosts file using notepad and add two following lines and save the host file.
127.0.0.1 ota.googlezip.net
127.0.0.1 ota-cache.googlezip.net
adb root (restarting adbd as root)
adb remount (remount succeeded)
adb push "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\hosts.txt" /system/etc/hosts
The changed host file will be copied from pc desktop to phone.
To check if you have success, open Google Chrome and go to ota.googlezip.net
You should get a message "This site is unavailable".
You should not get a Google logo with "404. That's an error".

Anything on the coming hotfix for the battery drain? It's getting pretty unbearable now. I'm leaving my phone plugged in all the time at home so I can have battery when I go outside. I tried using Blokada but it only blocks using my mobile data, and not the battery drain.
ota.googlezip.net and
ota-cache.googlezip.net still keep making outgoing requests every 3 seconds.

strange, may be you should try with host file blocking too.
I did it and also removed the ota update apk and it is vastly improved.

    So... Is the battery drain issue still here ? I would love to go back on PE if it's solved.
    It's okay I guess. Just format data and clean install. Not MIUI or Lineage levels of battery life, but not iPhone 5 battery level either. It's average.

    Also we moved here
    Because we have a new maintainer and we are on Android 12 now.

    Anyone tried the latest Android 12 PE? Does it still has battery draining issue? And any other bugs?

    No battery drain, it's working perfectly

    Hello,
    It seems like a lot of people has problem withe the current State of PE.
    But as usual no one comes up with proper logcat or any kind of way to support it.
    All I see is same thing i mentioned even in #2 of this thread .
    Other than that, all sorts of disrespectful comments.

    Some guy post missing features as bugs .Then another guy say ROM is crap. To begin with you both type of guys should know that this is a custom ROM and it has both its upsides and downsides.
    Now to those who are comparing with previous maintainer of PE with me , to those , everything has hacks. Every lil bug there is can be fixed instantly with some kind of hacks. But that doesn't mean it has to be fixed right away without
    further researching on it. because that means ,it is only a way to fix it so that user's don't complain and what I'm looking for is a long term fix.Not some fix that will fix for now and will be dead in future. But seeing some people making fun out of a project which someone is really working hard on is really demotivating.

    I'm not gonna say i can fix all bugs. But I am definitely trying to keep it clean as much as possible as this is my only device and i use this rom for my daily needs . So , i'd care for it as much as anyone here would. But that doesn't mean anyone will say anything about it without even reading the roms features and bugs list which is utterly not acceptable.

    and those who are concerned why am i replaced with previous maintainer ? Why not even ask the PE developers about it rather than hearing from the previous maintainer? Hope this post makes things clear.

    Regards

    New Update is released
    Changelog :
    * Patched kernel for SafetyNet Checks
    * Added Exfat support in kernel
    * Merged CAF tag LA.UM.7.2.c6-02600-sdm660.0
    * Fixed perf spamming logs totally
    * Fixed Reboot on Wifi Hotspot Turning on which essentially means no need to disable tethering acceleration anymore
    * Fixed some more issues regarding Amazon Prime and Netflix related to widevine L1
    * Updated Time from LA.UM.8.2.r1-04000-sdm660.0
    * Updated peripheral manager from LA.UM.8.2.r1-04000-sdm660.0
    * Updated media blobs from LA.UM.8.2.r1-04000-sdm660.0
    * Updated perf from LA.UM.8.2.r1-04000-sdm660.0
    * Updated ADSP from LA.UM.8.2.r1-04000-sdm660.0
    * Updated Overall vendor from old pie vendor

    Notes : For this build i'll suggest to make clean flash . A lot of things have been changed .
    But dirty flash is a optional which you can do always. In any case if its causing issues , Clear data of that specific app.
    Incase some livewallpaper is lagging , it is due to hardware limitations.
