Download the Magisk apk file, rename it to Magisk-VXX.zip, and flash it using "adb sideload" command in recovery just like you flash the ROM. If Magisk isn't automatically installed, or you have issues, re-name the file back to .apk, and install in on your phone.
Oh...thanks. I thought magisk.zip was something else !!

Installed Pixel Experience yesterday, everything runs great.
There's just one thing that bugs me a bit:
Using any gcam mod and the widescreen camera, there is a noticeable fisheye effect.
Can I somehow fix that?

Quick question regarding pixel experience bootloader relocking. Is "'get _unlock_ability" set to 0 (ie to reunlock you would have to enable OEM unlocking in pixel experience).

Or is "get_unlock_ability" kept at 1 and even after relocking fastboot unlock can be run without additional input

It is always kept at 1 so you can reunlock after locking. I tried for myseft because the boot with different OS screen is annoying as heck

I see. Does locking the bootloader get rid of the unlocked bootloader warning is a varient of it still present? Also a few more questions:

1. Does flashing a custom key overite the oem key? If so is it restoreable via the msmtool or is there any aditional steps required (ie backing any specific files). In the android documentation it appears the oem key is hardcoded with the custom as an aditional option but not sure.

2. Once the bootloader is locked I would assume you won't be able to flash another avb key or rom until the bootloader is reunlocked right? Also would data be wiped when relocking/unlocking the bootloader on PE?

The unlocked warning is still there but at least better than locking bootloader. You never gonna know when it's gonna f up the device
1. Recoverable via MSM because after MSM the bootloader locks itself (I screwed my device up after installing pixel exp then locked it with custom key before so I restored and it still works fine)
2.a. Needs unlocking before flashing ANYTHING (avb key included)
2.b. All wiped when unlocking/locking

can i flash magisk on this rom?
Yes as long as you didn't follow the option bootloader relock step (the part where you flash the avb key, not available on all phones).

You can flash magisk via PE/PE plus recovery. Simply grab the latest magisk apk from:

rename the .apk to .zip on a computer reboot your phone PE/PE plus recovery and select apply update and apply update over adb. Then via adb type 'adb sideload 'path to magisk.zip'. Once the update is done reboot and you should be good to go (this process will not wipe any data).

I updated to the latest version & seem to be missing the 'Battery Percentage icon' option. I think it existed in the last version. Any idea where to find it?

Also can I hide the less-used apps?

I'm on the latest update for PE, and I'm experiencing an issue with the fingerprint/biometrics unlock. Usually it works perfectly, but sometimes the notification pops up requesting me to unlock with my fingerprint (for an app or the screen unlock, etc), but there is no fingerprint icon, just blank. And when this happens, and I still attempt to put my finger where it's supposed to be, I get various errors such as moved too fast, screen is dirty, etc. I try to use different fingers (I've enrolled 5), and clean the screen, restart the phone, clear the app cache (even though it's not exclusive to any app). I usually get frustrated and just type in a password which had worked so far until today I had an app that wouldn't let me bypass the finger print to unlock with password or even unenroll biometrics, which is dumb but that's how the app was designed.

Is this issue specific to me? Have others had it and found a solution? Is this something with a known fix and I just missed it or maybe I did something wrong initially and it's catching up to me? Thank you in advance.

How is the battery life on latest build peeps? I was thinking of reinstalling it on my op8. Had a terrible battery life experience on the very first build. Also is the camera/video recording stuttering gone? I had that issue with the early builds. These are my two main issues right now for me.

    why does it have to be done that way thru adb? maybe twrp flashable to come because i doubt I'll try to install it that way. I'm excited by the prospect of the rom very much but I'll let a few guinea pigs go first and keep tabs on this. Is the lack of custom rom development because developers are waiting for android 11 or what? One of the main reasons I decided on OP8 was because i thought the forum would be very active and its been kinda disappointing thus far. Does anyone know when theres gonna be the official android 11 update not this open beta bullshit? also when an official twrp recovery?
    First of all, it has to be flashed through Fastboot because TWRP for Android 10 isn't really finished yet, devs have a hard time finding ways to comply with Android 10 new system, that's why there are a lot of those Fastboot ROMs.
    Second of all, those "Guinea Pigs" are users that allows OP to release the official OOS build you're eager to have. You just wait for it to come and you call users who report bugs "Guinea Pigs"... Remember that those who install Open Betas are the ones that make this phone not a crappyy pile of bugs bad glitches, and represent the "active community" you're complaining of rn. Get off you high horse man...
    Finally, the "lack of development" is indeed partially because devs are waiting for Android 11, and it has always been like that for every newly released OP phone. Once they age a bit that's when the amazing community comes together to build, to TEST, and finally release ROMs.

    How to install magisk on pixel experience rom?
    Get extracted boot.img and put into phone, open magisk and patch boot.img. Magisk outputs a patched boot.img in downloads. Transfer to pc where ADB lives, reboot to bootloader and enter fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img. Should flash to phone and Magisk has given root.
