I use this ROM daily for about a month now and it's really great! Loving it.
My issues: I don't like that I have to unlock the phone every time I use Quick tiles from the lock screen. Also, unlocking the phone using fingerprint is not very smooth. Other than that, everything is great!
Being not able to access quick settings tiles is a privacy feature. You can turn off ripple unlock animation to make unlock animation via fingerprint snappier, you can find it in Settings > Display > Lockscreen settings > Ripple animation.

hi, I see the OTA update notification in my phone, will it normally install it or do I have to dirty flash it? The phone is encrypted and using OrangeFox Recovery (that as I tried to install PixelOS recovery first but it never booted into the recovery)

As long as you're encrypted, any recovery does the job. You can sideload or flash from sdcard in the worst case.

Hi !
After downloading the package, when you click on "Install", it reboots on Orangefox by itself.

Hello guys, maybe it's a stupic question but I couldn't find an answer, I was on crdroid, now I'm on miui 12.5.4, I'm trying to flash pixelos but I can't even flash the recovery, I've downloaded the pixelos recovery, but fastboot flash recovery recovery.img finishes too fast and says ok but miui recovery 5.0 persists.
Also fastboot boot doesn't work, only once seemed it was doing something but then it failed saying "too many links".
Device is Mi8T Willow.
Any ideas?

The rom is amazing but I found some bugs
-the battery is instantly drained but I see nobody complains about that so I hope you could help me find what the problem is because it's a big deal for me
-ear speaker volume is too low (forex when you listen to a WhatsApp record)
-volume, in general, is too high
-when I change notification volume it does but it takes no effect

Yeah battery drain seems to be insane. This seems to be a problem in most Gapps-ed A12 roms as a whole. Even in other devices PixelOS has less than fantastic battery backup. It's just a tradeoff for the smooth Ui performance I suppose

Well, with the build from 26/04 the battery life was quiet nice, great sot, with the latest from 06/05 everything went downhill, something is causing it, maybe the battery optimizations?

On another note, there still present a bug when you make a call, from the earpiece you can hear everything around you, the only fix is to plug and unplug some headphones in the 3.5 mm jack, that works until you reboot the phone

I actually downgraded to A11 with flashing lineageos 18.1 after having a bootloop because of a certain magisk module but couldn't uninstall it because data is encrypted in recovery.
I wasn't satisfied with the battery performance at all anyway.
I am new to this whole custom roms thing because I am fed up with miui so I am trying which would be better.

Same here, compared to the April's builds, the difference in battery drain is noticeable, I feel that a fully charged battery is now lasting about 75% of what it used to last on previous build

I'm unable to update via OTA or flash magisk. In OTA Update after reboot I got only "Error" screen with "dead android" model. Also when I try to flash magisk I always get error 127. How can I fix this issue?

I dont know if it asked before but is there a way to remove the "Hide keyboard" button below keyboard? its a waste of space and cant seem to turn it off

    Any GCam mod that works on this ROM?
    Stock GCam crashes for me
    Try BSG or Aspen.

    Just flashed to the latest version, bootet up and got the message that there is a newer release from the 10th? Was there a Hotfix for something or that simply a different buildate for the Autoupdater and the Forum?

    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.
    */

    Improvements over PixelExperience

    Device Specific Issues:
    • Slow charging on Chinese variants (temporary workaround is to flash a different kernel like Sixteen or Ryzen Kernel).
    • 48MP doesn't work in MIUI Camera (won't work on android 12 because of source built libcamera service).
    • You tell me.

    • Latest Global Stable Android 11 firmware for ginkgo and willow users

    Encryption FAQ

    Encryption means converting your data into an unreadable (encrypted) format which prevents it from being read without first being decrypted, increasing security as those who don't know the key (in this case password or PIN) to decrypting the data won't be able to read the data, they'll just get jumbled characters.

    On the other hand, leaving the phone decrypted or forcing decryption will allow anyone access to that data without issue.

    Most ROMs are encrypted by default. When formatting data during the flashing process, this allows the data partition to be encrypted when the phone boots.

    In short:
    1. If you prefer your data being secure and aren't planning on changing ROMs frequently, leave the builds encrypted.
    2. If you plan on flashing different ROMs on a regular basis, decryption may be an easier option though less secure.

    Can I flash magisk on encrypted builds with PixelOS recovery?
    Yes, you can sideload it

    How to flash encrypted builds?
    - Reboot to fastboot mode
    - Flash PixelOS recovery fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    - Sideload ROM using ADB
    - Go to Advanced and Format Data

    Didn't find any camera app after the first boot. Does it have any? Would be great, if it has had MiCam port.
