I'm facing a problem with this rom on my S8+, after a reboot the phone starts normally but as soon as the lockscreen is shown the screen dims slowly till its completely off and doesn't tun on again.

I faced this same problem on this rom before and tried multiple things, reflashing the rom zip did nothing, and the only way I was able to fix it was to wipe the data partition.

The first time I hadn't usb debuggin on so my options was limited. now I do have usb debuggin on, I tried resetting the display settings with no success "adb shell wm reset", also I restarted the phone in safe mode, same thing. I see the safe mode text on the lockscreen before it dims to black.

Any ideas to what causing this? any way I can figure out the cause? is there some boot log somewhere that I can access? I really do like the rom and don't want to change it and I'm hoping I wont have to wipe my data partition again.

I'm using the pixel experience plus edition with magisk, in both of the times this happens it was after a reboot.

Hi, I had same problem. For me it was "bedtime mode" after I enabled "Grayscale" option. Then when it was on and I restarted phone it took maybe 2 seconds after boot to completely dim and stays off. I turned off grayscale option and since then it's ok.

Yeah you're right, Thanks for the tip 👍. This morning I checked my phone and it worked just fine, so with no doubt it's the bedtime mode.

The previous time this happened I wasn't patient enough to leave it till the morning as it occured in the middle of the week and I had to have acces to my phone in the morning.

Hi, I have seen that when the user wants to perform an action on the SD card, the app asks to select a folder to gain access, and the user selects the root of the SD card.
Could you provide more details? Which app are you using? What action are you trying to achieve? And which folder of your SD card have you selected? Does the system says that error for all your folders of your SD card?
Cheers

This is happening with all apps can read or write on sd card it says allow to use sd first by selecting the root folder of the sd .. and when the explorer opens the root folder , the option to use this folder is grayed out and can't select it and when i press it shows a message says I can't use this folder to protect my privacy please select another folder .. thats it .. I can't even attach a screenshots to you right now because of this ☹️

Install the Fox Magisk Module Manager, then install the NoStorageRedirect.zip via FoxMMM.

Fix for sd card will arrive in the next build. Now you can tell why PE is still in beta 😉

guys, what's the best way to root s8 with pixel experience? magisk tutorial tell to reset everything with tar file but if I do it will revert to stock rom, the alternative is to install via custom recovery?

i have a problem with android 12 and 13 the phone gets very hot when i plug the charger and use it, after a few seconds it stops charging the phone says it's charging but i lose battery percentage, is this a hardware issue or from the software. what im guessing is the ohone stops charging due to it being hot.
