8.15 updated, added stock camera, monet boot animation, audio quality tuning and more, check #2 for more details.

Also, Razer announced "Theme Shop" on stock Android 8.1, 9 will be shutdown forever after 8.24, if you guys want to try it, do it in time
I disabled the stock camera by accident and the icon reverted back to stock, how can I put the other icon back? I thought I was disabling GCamera.
 
Might be an isolated issue but is anyone else having a weird problem after applying the OTA updates where if you use android auto with google maps/waze, the GPS freaks out and doesn't update properly or looks like you're not on the right road? It's been happening to me every time Alcatraz releases a new OTA update and I apply it while at work, and re-install magisk everytime no issue. But when I leave for the day and plug into android auto my GPS seems to spaz out for maybe an hour or two, and requires a couple restarts then is perfectly normal.

Hello there. After making the latest update(PixelExperience for Razer Phone 2 [aura]), I can't load the Magisk img file I packed on the phone(error: boot partition is smaller than boot image). do you have a solution for this? Thanks.

I just bought an used Razer Phone 2 (in excellent condition) and the flashed last update of PixelExperience.
I have a few questions:
- Did not tried before install PixelExperience, but now wireless charging isn't working :(
- Bootload unlock warning message always display on boot, There's a way not to show it?
- There's a way to change screen resolution additionaly to reduce refresh rate?
- Benchmarks Apps don't run too, Antutu there's no "Start" button on screen and 3D Mark closes and shows a out of memory message

did you find a solution for the wireless charging problem?

hello

1: first i have to say this is my daily driver since you release it. (i give some feedback before)
2: i never have any problem with wireless charging. is always seem's to being working just fine.
3: i still have the doubt about the fingerprint ... i dont even have the app on the system.. is like the sensor was never exist...



- (yes i try clean install differents official images, SMr6 = SMR7 (?) SMR6, system 7.1, 8 or 9 but it dissapear ...
- no, i dont have a company version, o special version without fingerprint sensor. a couple of roms before (last year) is working fine.

is any HW test to do it? (i try with codes, but nothing work to check hardware....)

or maybe is any way to "patch" or force fingerprintsensor to actually work? (i know this happen in other phones... is an android thing... but it resolve with safe mode restarts, cleaning cache, etc etc = i try all of that....



any idea to try?

thanks once again.

Getting good stability and speed with this rom - really great work. Is there any way to get rid of the rom warning on power-on even after putting oem lock back on?

can confirm;
rooting pixel experience using magisk and installing ota update and using the install to inactive slot preserves root in case anyone wants to root pixel experience.

Hello all! My daily phone, a OnePlus 8, was damaged in a hurricane last week, but luckily I had my backup RP2 safely stored away, which I dug out and flashed the latest Lineage OS, but it had too many issues (lagging interface, GPS unable to lock, stock camera crashing). I decided to give PixelExperience a try, and I really like it! Thanks Alcatraz323!

So far, everything is working great. It's fast, smooth, and every app works flawlessly. After getting Magisk installed, I disabled some background apps/services to improve the battery life, which is now almost as good as the stock ROM.

I disabled the following:
Google Play Services for AR
Personal Safety
Digital Wellbeing
Adaptive brightness
Ambient display
Set refresh to 60hz

However, I am having the same issue with the microphone pickup as some other people.

Here's how I tested:
I placed calls from my phone's SIM # to my Google Voice # on my computer with high quality headphones on. I tried with adaptive sound in settings both on and off:

Speakerphone Off
- spoke into the lower mic very closely, I could hear my voice OK
- spoke into the lower mic farther away, I could not hear my voice
- spoke into the upper mic close and far, no voice

Speakerphone On
- spoke into the lower mic closely, voice loud but distorted
- spoke into the lower mic farther away, voice good
- spoke into the upper mic closely, voice loud but distorted
- spoke into the upper mic farther away, voice good
- spoke to the phone from across the room, voice low but could understand

I did some digging and found a thread with a similar issue & fix:

I made a backup copy of mixer_paths_tavil.xml and added the 3 lines suggested in the 1st post, then restarted my phone. I then made a call to myself and the microphone now works perfectly in handset mode! Loud and clear, no matter how close or far my mouth is to the microphones!! It's a bit better in speakerphone mode too, but not much. You can play around with the 3 values and set to your liking.

I used Root Explorer to copy, paste, and adjust permissions, and Notepad on PC to edit. Attached is the edited version of mixer_paths_tavil.xml that I am now using.

Thanks again for a great ROM, Alcatraz323!

Hallo.
First of all I want to thanks for creating this rom. I flashed my razer phone 2. I tried uploading the latest PE version and it looks really cool. However, I can't go back to the stock rom anymore. Uploading the stock rom is fine, but the phone freezes on the original razer android logo. Please, can someone tell me how to go back to stock rom? What all needs to be done or where i do a mistake? Thank you very much . I don't have much experience with it.

edit : solved - I need use command - fastboot flashing unlock_critical.

Cheers !
