The Android 13 update is great so far. It's really smooth. The boot times are quicker and apps just open a tad bit quicker.

With all that said and done, like others have said, the battery life is worse and I have to put my phone on battery saving mode whenever I'm not using it (sometimes extreme battery saving mode) to get a decent battery life. And it's pretty much impossible to get a whole day's worth for an average user.

> Some bugs that I've noticed:

> The battery widget doesn't work. Keeps saying 'loading'.

> The settings icon in the app drawer(pixel launcher) doesn't change the accent colour when the wallpaper is changed. It keeps the accent colour of the first wallpaper set on the phone. (The bug has been there since Android 12)

> Volume controls don't work when the screen is off. Tested it in Spotify and YouTube.

> There have also been a couple random restarts.

Hey...
been a long time since I last flashed a custom ROM on my Note 10. So I have an Indian 4Gb variant and recently flashed the OS (A13) and firmware. Everything works great... mostly.

It's just been a day and I have noticed a few issues:
  • Bluetooth file transfer doesn't work at all
  • Now playing settings exist but the options are greyed out
  • RAM management sucks but I can't blame it on the OS as I have a 4Gb variant but it could be better
  • Can't set Live Wallpaper as the options are covered by the animation
Overall, the ROM is buttery smooth and the fluid google animations are tempting and a good change in contrast to MIUI's. I would like the double tap feature like in PE+ I will update if I find new errors

Kudos to the team for making something this good

I hadn't noticed it untill you pointed out, the RAM management is pretty bad. However it wasn't like this in Android 12. It was way better than MIUI's ram management. Transition to apps used to be smoother (it did affect battery life a little). I'm hoping it would be fixed in the next update

I have installed pixel OS 2 days ago. I installed the android 12 version not 13. After installing, everything is running smooth except the battery. Battery drains a lot. If I sleep at night with the battery % at 60, I'd wake up to almost 10% or less. Phone doesn't go into deep sleep either. How can I fix it?

AFAIK the only thing you can try is flashing the ROM again, use Pixel OS recovery and the latest firmware for your region.

The recommended firmware to use is v13.0.9.0 which can only be found in the global version I believe. I am using the global version and I haven't had any heating issues.

Do you use firmware for India or Global? I am in EU and use EU fw and I didn't have this issue IIRC. Also 42 degrees is not that hot?
I am currently using the firmware V13.0.2.0.SKGINXM which is global but the Indian variant. Does that have anything to do with the issues i face?

fastboot flash boot <path/to/recovery.img> is the appropriate command.

Also as you're flashing this ROM, I suggest flashing android 12.1 rather than the latest 13 stable. 13 has a lot of bugs and poor ram management. 12.1 is way better compared to 13 and you can update later after a couple months when 13's issues are resolved.

Thanks so much, just installed 12.1.

    Major problems I encountered on the 13 version: Google play books when you activate text to speech, the voice pause, close, play book restart. And the memory manager it's crap. Almost equal the miui memory manager. If you switch to other app, it's almost certainly that the app in background will be closed. That's annoying
    Yes, the ram management is pretty bad on A13. If you want better, ram management and battery backup and better app performance (in general; differs from app to app) then I suggest downgrading back to A12.1. It's much more stable and is pretty much an upgrade from A13 if you don't mind loosing a few minor features.

    strange, here my 2 apps for bank works
    Yes it's weird. It's my local bank in Indonesia named Mandiri. I tested another local bank apps such BCA, BRI, is working flawlessly.
    Edit: Another problem found. Flash in camera app not working.
    Edit 2: I installed magisk delta with magisk hide and Enforce SuList turned on, the bank apps is working now. Really weird.

    I am so surprised that how bad application background rention is. It's not that Ram is full, it's just that the OS kills that application whenever it goes in background.

    Android 12 was so good, I don't know how we went backward in this department.

    The developers released a new update recently. It fixes ram management (Almost as good as 12.1) and is much better compared to the previous update. Over all its pretty stable.

    PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
    In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

    Code:
    /* Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    */

    Notes
    • Encryption is enabled by default
    • SELinux is enforcing
    • GCamGo V2 inbuilt
    • NetErnels Kernel


    PixelOS Recovery is recommended if you want to stay encrypted, no custom recovery supports encryption on Android12, i.e. you won't be able to decrypt your data.

    Flashing Instructions

    Keep in mind...​

    This ROM comes with EROFS formatting, due to which:
    • Avoid Changing Kernel (unless it supports EROFS)
    • System is Read-Only (restricts making changes to overlays, system APKs, etc.)
    • Avoid using any other recovery than PixelOS recovery which is included (If you wish to use, check for EROFS compatibility)
    • YOU MUST CLEAN FLASH IF:
      • You are coming from any other ROM or MIUI
      • You are coming from May 2022 Update or before
    Clean flash (coming from a different ROM):
    • Download ROM from the link above
    • Download Magisk v23.0 or newer (optionally)
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Format data
    • Flash latest android 12 Global stable firmware (link above)
    • Flash ROM zip
    • Reboot and voila!
    • To get root access, reboot to recovery after ROM setup and flash Magisk.

    Updating to a newer build (dirty flash):
    • Flash ROM zip and Magisk (optional)
    • Reboot and voila!
