anybody having issue with vibrate mode? as in, the phone doesnt vibrate at all when in vibrate mode.

If i enable vibration for ring/notification, it works properly when on normal mode but nothing happens when on vibrate mode. Ideally, I only want it to vibrate when in vibrate mode only but the settings don't appear to allow it.
 
Hello,

Pixel 2 XL running Android 12 PE beta build (Nov 24th) on November security patch.

Issued I've faced:
1. I don't think the Google photos unlimited storage is functioning as the device is recognized as a Pixel 5? I can't find a message in google photos confirming that it's on like on Proton AOSP. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

2. Media playback seems to stutter or stop when the display turns off/goes into always-on display, issue is fixed if I turn off "Now playing" (I use youtube music but I've seen other comments saying it happens on spotify aswell)

3. Now playing does not show information of song playing nearby on lock screen but still shows said song on the actual app

4. Location green indication on the top right randomly keeps coming on

5. At a glance weather and other information doesn't work unless you sideload "Android system intelligence S.10" for pixel 6 off APK Mirror

6. Hardware notification light cannot be disabled, comes on when charging/phone is almost dead

7. FPS counter in developer options does not seem to be functioning

No further issues I've found yet, will update if I do.
I just following your instruction, now working glance!!! Thank a lot!! Almost perfect now!!!

Was anyone able to get Android Auto working? I have read through everything and tried the nikgapps as well.

That is the only critical feature that I really need. Super awesome ROM!

i dont know if you have resolved your issue yet but you can try this fix. i had the same problem on one of my devices...

Type ---> fastboot flash boot_a (directory of and name of boot.img)

wait for that to finish then do the same with one small difference

Type ---> fastboot flash boot_b (directory of and name of boot.img)

doing this will flash to both partitions individually. there is another 2 options that i have seen but one doesnt always work and the other takes longer to complete.

**** ( ) IS NOT USED IN THE FASTBOOT COMMAND ****

This rom is awesome, buttery smooth on a 4-yr old phone. Any idea how to regain the unlimited photo storage for Pixel 2 XL? It seems the phone is current recognized as Pixel 6 Pro so did not get unlimited photo storage.

Hello all,

I'm new to using Pixel Experience on my Pixel 2 XL and am running into an issue with one banking app. I installed version 12 of Pixel Experience and the TD Bank app won't even show up in the Play Store. If I try and download it from the web, I get "Your device isn't compatible with this version". I went ahead and installed Magisk and enabled MagiskHide but that didn't seem to help much. Since I can't even get it installed, I can't specifically hide root for that app.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Fred

Use the APK extractor app to get the APK from another device then email or move that APK to your phone and install.

Installed this last night, coming from stock Android 11, and had not done a thing to the phone prior. Unlocked bootloader (critical) took a while as updating SDK tools did not load Google driver correctly. (If you cant see data using fastboot devices command, check that!) After was resolved, moved onto loading PE Recovery, and then hit the user data wipe issue spoke about in first few posts. Booted back to recovery, then ran fastboot -w, then adb sideload zip, and were in business! Thank you devs!

    Repartitioning is needed to flash the ROM. So that - information is available in the OP and in this thread. Search and you should find it.

    In twrp you should go adb sideload and then sideload via pc in terminal.
    Yes I done that. I've experience in adb/fastboot terminals. This is the only ROM that throes back that error. I've tried it with Lineage and Arrow and they install perfectly

    I would like to use this as my daily driver, but callers keep telling me they can't hear a thing. I hear them perfectly. I doubt it is a hardware issue, since I can record voice memos and messages. I phoned myself and left a voicemail: no sound indeed. :confused:

    After a quick google search, it looks like it is a common issue with Android 12 custom roms. Is anyone experiencing this issue with this specific ROM?
    I use PE not PE+ as my daily driver and callers hear me perfectly.

    LTE when available, no VoWiFi. Would it make a difference? It doesn't sound as if the connection was poor, but just static. I'll give PE a shot, I'm on the latest PE+ build now
    VoLTE is very much dependent on your provider, whereas 2G/3G generally "just works". Each provider has their own VoLTE profile integrated in the phone's firmware.

    I have a question regarding the update process. I am already on it, and I have done the partitioning, and I now want to go to the Plus edition. My question is, do I have to go through the repartitioning again, or do I just sideload the .zip file of the ROM?
    No - you only need to partition once, when you come to PE - some have said you need to clean install moving from the latest 12, to 12+, but others have done it dirty, I would clean install myself, but no, you do not need to mess with the part table.
