    Thank you for the work, btw I have some questions: Is MIUI Camera included? Is the notification volume channel separated from the ring volume channel? I want my phone sounds louder whenever there is an incoming call but not when there are too many notifications come. I tried some 3rd' apps to fix it but when I adjust the notification volume, the ring's one is modified to the same level as the notification's too.

    Thanks for reply. Will you make it available in the next ROM version?
    For that I'll have to release two variants of the same rom, one would be the regular one, and the other one with Android 10 kernel and decrypted build. That'll take me a lot of work.

    I'll highly recommend you to flash Android 10 kernel with decrypted rom to fix it. Let me know if you want me to link a kernel.

    Yep, miui camera is included by default and everything is working in the same. But ring and notifications volume bar is merged :(

    This ROM is now certainly the fifth on my device (willow), but probably the last! I finally found it - a ROM that finally runs perfomant, smooth and so far without system crashes. This ROM is simply to recommend. Thanks a lot!

    So far I haven't encountered any bugs - at least serious ones.

    I just tried PixelOS on my Willow (Note 8T), and I find it really good. There are just two bugs or limitations to fix:

    1) Cannot use the Revolut banking app. Indeed, to connect, Revolut takes a selfie with the camera and does facial recognition. In practice, the selfie is taken well, but the application remains blocked on the photo made of me. I never had this problem with other ROMs. Of course, I tried to uninstall/reinstall the app.

    2) Most of the other ROMs allow you to delete the free space under Gboard, which allows you to paste the space bar at the edge of the screen (Cf screenshot below). I haven't find how to do it with PixelOS.

    Otherwise, for the rest, a system that seems stable and pleasant, thanks for your job :)

    The facial recognition thing should have been fixed.
    This is a pixel based rom and doesnt pack extra customizations, you can surely flash magisk mods to get rid of that space. Although even the latest Pixels have it the same way.

      So I don't have to update to the latest firmware because global latest is 12.0.4 (android 10)?
      Because at the requirements you said I have to install android 11 that's why I'm asking
      you'll have to flash china beta A11 fw, all I meant was don't flash it while you're on miui as it'll mismatch the firmware resulting in a soft bootloop. Instead wipe system, vendor, data etc. and then flash firmware file (A11 china beta).
      now you can flash pixelos or Pixelish.
      1
      Yep, this was a known issue and should be fixed now. Although you might not be able to see the build changelog in OTA updater this month.
      The fix for that has been pushed and will be reflected in next month's update.
      For now, if you check your ota updater again it'll work.
      Thanks. I can confirm the update downloaded and applied installed itself.
