Which version are you on? Edit: Nevermind, I see it is on the non-4.4.
1) Is "wake on plug" turned off for you in settings? With that on it is working for me.
2) Yep I do notice that the LED doesn't work for notifications.
3) SafetyNet/Netflix is working from the playstore for me. I see that announcement from PE was on the 10th, so the fix should have been used given the builds were done after that. I'm not sure why it isn't working on your device.
Im on 4.19 version.
I have wake on plug ON in settings.
Jesus! Now the Netflix works. It reappeared in the Store... just now.....

Yeah, I agree.
LED not working properly when charging. Doesn't turn off when phone is 100% charged.

Screen doesn't wake on when a power source is plugged in.

Also LED doesnt blinking when you receive notifications with the screen off.

Hoping in the next release will be a patch/fix for these.

Fast changing works fine. Maybe you should clean the usb ports (your phone's and your charging cable)

Is there any way to sideload a patch and fix the issue.

Can some guide me to install pixel_recovery.img via twrp. I did the following.
1. boot in fastboot mode.
2. fastboot boot twrp...
3. copied the pixel_recovery.img to internal storage.
4. Selected to install the img file.
Now it is asking for partition selection....
system
vendor
boot
...
...
ramdisk reocvery.
I am unable to decide which partition to select. I would be helpful if someone can guide me.
Thanks in advance....

I installed this ROM, works fine. I happy with the rom, experiencing a pure pixel rom.

Issues I encountered very rarely:
  • There is an intermittent lag.. there was once a random restart
  • Gcam crashed once or twice..
Issues I encountered often: The auto brightness or adaptive brightness doesn’t seem to work well.. it takes time to adjust.. I face a battery drain issue. - i get max 3 hrs of screen time only.

Are there any custom kernels i can flash to manage the ram and battery life better?

What version of ROM did you flash?
4.4 kernel or with 4.19?
PE or PE Plus?

4.19 ver. doesn't have battery drain problems.
Thats for sure.

The problems that have is with the LED, battery charging LED including wake on screen , screen animation when you plug the charger with the phone turned off. and with notifications.

If you have the 4.19 installed, do you have any problems that I posted above?

4.19 based kernel is OLDCAM which is only for Pixel Extended (PE PLus, i guess)
the 4.4 based kernel is NewCAM which is for Pixel experience Roms

needs validation

@suraj123 you were right for the fast charging.
Now I noticed tha doesnt work for me too.
It shows only "Slow Charging" or "Charging". I didnt notice that before because as I mentioned in my previous posts for the bugs that 4.19 PE Plus has, is that "wake on screen" doesnt work when power source is plugged in.

So, to sum up. Bugs that need to be fixed in the next release:

1) st of all needs fix on Wake On screen when a power source is plugged in.

2) LED doesn't turn off when the phone is fully charged as it used to be.

3) The LED doesnt blinking when screen is off when I receive notifications.

4) Fast Charging not working.

Hope for fixes in the upcoming release.
Didnt thought that I would have these tiny-annoying problems with this custom ROM....

Further following things should be resolved.
1. voice clarity during call.
2. Video over LTE not working.
3. Audio codecs are absent for bluetooth.

    I pushed the new release. There are four versions at the moment (pe, pe+, pe 4.4, pe+ 4.4).

    The non-4.4 versions use a different device tree that has less bugs, and is what I plan on using from now on. Sadly, you must do a reset to use it...

    If you don't want to do that right now I've added the 4.4 builds that use the old device tree, which you can upgrade to without resetting, but I will stop building it at some point since the new one works better.

    If you do a wipe, I would highly recommend installing stock firmware V11.0.28.0.QDIMIXM prior to install. It's the last vendor security update Xiaomi will give the Mi A2 (still get Android security updates though).

    Anyway, hope you all think this version is better and let me know of any bugs you find (with version used please).

    Release notes:

    New Release (non-4.4):
    • Switches to halcyon 4.19 kernel
    • Fixes deep sleep
    • Fixes GCam ports crashing
    • Fixes WiFi displays
    • August security patch
    New Release (4.4):
    • Fixes deep sleep
    • August security patch

    100% last night and restarted this is the log and usage of battery attached
    Okay what I think is happening is that you may have older firmware without QTI bluetooth support, causing the service to crash and restart a lot. In a release later today I'll revert to not using QTI which I think will fix that.
    On the latest build, the animation for opening apps is choppy, which is weird, as the last build had the smoothest animations of any ROM I'd ever used, and Okay Google doesn't work, I've had no issues other than those.
    yep, animation seems a little bit laggy
    Sorry about that I hadn't tested blurs with a static wallpaper, I see that lag now. I'll disable blurs by default in the release today, or you can do it now in developer settings. Also I'll fix the Okay Google.

    I must say this is one of the best MiA2 ROM I've ever used! I have just 1 request. Please add flashing instructions on the first post, if you could. Thanks again!
    I'm glad you like it! I've also added the firmware + installation guide at the bottom, thanks for the suggestion.

    Why not release after getting "June Security Patches" ?
    I wanted to fix these bugs before then (the security patch won't be available until around 2 weeks from now).
