I began to notice that while listening to music in a car through aux, the volume sometimes decreases by itself, it happens with a notification, but then the volume returns, but here it doesn’t ... I decided that it was drizzling the cable, like when it wasted the bodies, it thinks that they inserted a headset and drops the sound from the maximum . But on the new cable it's the same ... Right now I was watching YouTube at lunchtime and the volume decreased right before my eyes, the volume figures appeared in YouTube Vanced and decreased themselves From what could this be?

Could this be "Adaptive Sound" in the settings?

Hi all, I just installed latest PE plus (2022 June 13) by following the installation guide (no rooting) - but I'm having issues with Google pay:

Couldn't finish setup to pay in shops​

This phone can't be used to pay in shops. This may be because it is rooted or altered in some other way.​
Anyone know how to resolve this?
same here. Rooting with proper magisk modules does not help either.

It looks like the problem is with June security patch.

I am currently using PE+ May build, GPay works on it.

Thanks for the message!
I forgot to report back, but that's the same as what I'm experiencing (PE+ May build working).

For what it's worth, the OTA System Update for June continues to say it's available for me. But when I try to update it directly from the settings and reboot after install, it still says the June update is available as if the update never went through!

Was this the same for you?

There are notifications about system update, but I ignore it and don't update.

I'm actually using root now with on May PE+ build (unfortunately I didn't check for SafetyNet pass without it) with modules to pass SafetyNet.

As fast as I understand this rom should pass SafetyNet out of the box (and probably still does so for other devices?), but something got broken from June security patch here (also https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-12-barbet-pixelexperience-aosp-official.4431897/post-87017237)

I've already opened an issue at PE github; hope this will be fixed in next build. Please ;)

Version: PixelExperience_Plus_barbet-12.1-20220613-0512-OFFICIAL.zip

When Google Play updates Google Camera then the camera app will instantly crash when trying to launch it. So I've had to go into Google Play and uninstall the Google Camera udpate from there in order for the camera to work without crashing. And I've had to turn off automatic updates so it won't continue to cause this problem. I would like to know what might be causing this.

i had the same problem. so i uninstalled the update. i switched builds to PE-Plus-barbet-12.1-20220627-UNOFFICIAL.zip thinking something might be outdated with the official. the same thing happened to me again. the camera crashes if you update the app. then i decided to build the rom from the source again. same thing happened when i built it from the source. so either AOSP or Pixel Experience has a bug in their software causing the camera app to crash. personally i think it has to do with google play store or services, because the minute those two update i can't install apps i use to be able to install and have to go to apkmirror to download them and install them manually. yet they will install from my google drive backup before play and services update.

at this point it is pointless to do anything. the july 5th update is almost here. so i'm just dealing with the problems until it is released.

I have the same issue. I installed OpenCamera from F-Droid and it works without crashing. It is not as quick on photos but quality seems fine.

July 20 PE+ update became available OTA and this one was able to have the update fully install properly.
In addition, I was able to then update the Camera app and now it doesn't crash on start. :)

... But Google Pay doesn't work anymore despite passing YASNAC tests 😔

EDIT: possibly fixed after clearing the cache/data of Google Play Store app (will report back)

EDIT 2: still doesn't work 😔

Thanks. Also are you running the regular version or the plus version? Or would that not make a difference?
I'm running regular version. Plus version has more features + customisations and some of them use extra resources. When it comes to battery life less resources=better battery life. PixelExeperience is the best rom so far for Pixel 5a when it comes to stability, smoothness and battery life. I can't wait for A13 version.

I love Pixel Experience for the things like the status bar brightness slider, network traffic info, the seconds & am/pm in the clock, invert nav bar buttons and so on.

But I just couldn't get Google Pay/Wallet working with the latest (July & August) ROM versions (PE+).
I'm currently back on the PE+ 20220517 version, which was the last version that was compatible with the Google Pay/Wallet app for me...but that comes with its own problems.

Primarily, I would love to just have the latest features, but also there's some weird filter/video playback problems across all socials (incl. Instagram, Tiktok, Youtube shorts).The green grid lines, the blue contrast, and other filters keep happening when a video loops, for some reason as per the attachment. Maybe that's just an Android bug and not a Pixel Experience bug, if anyone knows I'd love to know what's wrong there.

I'd also love to know if anyone could get the Google Pay/Wallet app working in the latest PE/PE+ roms on their Pixel 5A phones. Otherwise, I think I might bite the bullet and switch back to stock :(

    Install PixelExperience on barbet

    WARNING: I copy and pasted thes instuctions. Please go to the offical guide for your device Barbet https://wiki.pixelexperience.org/devices/barbet/install/

    WARNING: These instructions only work if you follow every section and step precisely.
    Do not continue after something fails!

    Basic requirements​

    1. Read through the instructions at least once before actually following them, so as to avoid any problems due to any missed steps!
    2. Make sure your computer has adb and fastboot. Setup instructions can be found here.
    3. Enable USB debugging on your device.
    warning
    WARNING: Before following these instructions please ensure that the device is on the latest Android 12 firmware.
    This is not necessarily the newest available version! Please up- or downgrade to the required version before proceeding (guides can be found on the internet!).

    Flashing the vendor boot partition​

    warning
    WARNING: This platform requires the vendor boot partition to be flashed for recovery to work properly, the process to do so is described below.
    1. Download this vendor_boot.img file.
    2. Power off the device, and boot it into bootloader mode:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power.
    3. Flash a the downloaded images to your device by typing (replace <vendor_boot> with the actual filename!):
    fastboot flash vendor_boot <vendor_boot>.img

    Unlocking the bootloader​

    info_outline
    NOTE: The steps below only need to be run once per device.
    warning
    WARNING: Unlocking the bootloader will erase all data on your device! Before proceeding, ensure the data you would like to retain is backed up to your PC and/or your Google account, or equivalent. Please note that OEM backup solutions like Samsung and Motorola backup may not be accessible from PixelExperience once installed.
    1. Enable OEM unlock in the Developer options under device Settings, if present.
    2. Connect the device to your PC via USB.
    3. On the computer, open a command prompt (on Windows) or terminal (on Linux or macOS) window, and type:
      adb reboot bootloader

      You can also boot into fastboot mode via a key combination:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power.
    4. Once the device is in fastboot mode, verify your PC finds it by typing:
      fastboot devices

      If you don’t get any output or an error:
      • on Windows: make sure the device appears in the device manager without a triangle. Try other drivers until the command above works!
      • on Linux or macOS: If you see no permissions fastboot try running fastboot as root. When the output is empty, check your USB cable and port!
    5. Now type the following command to unlock the bootloader:
      fastboot flashing unlock

      info_outline
      NOTE: At this point the device may display on-screen prompts which will require interaction to continue the process of unlocking the bootloader. Please take whatever actions the device asks you to to proceed.
    6. If the device doesn’t automatically reboot, reboot it. It should now be unlocked.
    7. Since the device resets completely, you will need to re-enable USB debugging to continue.

    Flashing the vendor boot partition​

    warning
    WARNING: This platform requires the vendor boot partition to be flashed for recovery to work properly, the process to do so is described below.
    1. Download this vendor_boot.img file.
    2. Power off the device, and boot it into bootloader mode:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power.
    3. Flash a the downloaded images to your device by typing (replace <vendor_boot> with the actual filename!):
    fastboot flash vendor_boot <vendor_boot>.img

    Temporarily booting a custom recovery using fastboot​

    1. Download the PixelExperience Recovery. Simply download the latest recovery file.
    2. Connect your device to your PC via USB.
    3. On the computer, open a command prompt (on Windows) or terminal (on Linux or macOS) window, and type:
      adb reboot bootloader

      You can also boot into fastboot mode via a key combination:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power.
    4. Once the device is in fastboot mode, verify your PC finds it by typing:
      fastboot devices

      If you don’t get any output or an error:
      • on Windows: make sure the device appears in the device manager without a triangle. Try other drivers until the command above works!
      • on Linux or macOS: If you see no permissions fastboot try running fastboot as root. When the output is empty, check your USB cable (preferably use a USB Type-A 2.0 one or a USB hub) and port!
      • check
        TIP: Some devices have buggy USB support while in bootloader mode, if you see fastboot hanging with no output when using commands such as fastboot getvar ... , fastboot boot ..., fastboot flash ... you may want to try a different USB port (preferably a USB Type-A 2.0 one) or a USB hub.
    5. Temporarily flash a recovery on your device by typing (replace <recovery_filename> with the actual filename!):
      fastboot flash boot <recovery_filename>.img

      info_outline
      NOTE: Outdated fastboot releases dropped legacy A/B support, so it might attempt to flash to boot__a / boot__b rather than boot_a / boot_b if you try to flash boot. In this case, you must update fastboot to a release newer than or equal to 31.0.2. Alternatively, you can manually specify which slot to flash to based on what slot fastboot failed to flash to. For example, if fastboot fails to flash to boot__a, you must flash to boot_a.

    Installing PixelExperience from recovery​

    1. Download the PixelExperience installation package that you would like to install or build the package yourself.
    2. If you are not in recovery, reboot into recovery:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power. Then use the menu to select Recovery Mode.
    3. Now tap Factory Reset, then Format data / factory reset and continue with the formatting process. This will remove encryption and delete all files stored in the internal storage, as well as format your cache partition (if you have one).
    4. Return to the main menu.
    5. Sideload the PixelExperience .zip package:
      • On the device, select “Apply Update”, then “Apply from ADB” to begin sideload.
      • On the host machine, sideload the package using: adb sideload filename.zip.
        check
        TIP: Normally, adb will report Total xfer: 1.00x, but in some cases, even if adb: failed to read command: Success/No error. In some cases it will report adb: failed to read command: No error or adb: failed to read command: Undefined error: 0 which is also fine.
    6. Once you have installed everything successfully, click the back arrow in the top left of the screen, then “Reboot system now”.
    info_outline
    NOTE: The first boot usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, depending on the device. If it takes longer, you may have missed a step, otherwise feel free to get assistance
    check
    TIP: If the installation process reports the message "(~47%) adb: failed to read the command: No error", do not worry, the process was completed successfully and you can restart the device.
    I am not connected to Pixel Experience rom in any way.
    Just posting to share.
    I am not providing help and am not responsible for anything that happens.
    Help each other!
    If a P.E. maintainer wants this down. Please do so.

    • Hide Notch support.
    • StatusBar shortcuts
    • Rotation settings
    • Lock screen display (media cover, music visualizer, power menu)
    • Per-app volume settings
    • Increasing ring volume
    • Different gestures
    • Power and Volume button customisations
    • Network traffic monitor
    • Brightness (brightness slider, auto brightness, brightness control)
    • Quick settings (quick pulldown, title visibility, vibrate on touch, rows, columns)
    There are more stuff one can unearth – this list was just a start off for the long feature list we have.

    Thanks for the nice Rom
    Is there a version of PixelExperience for Pixel 5a Barbet but Android 11 (Plus edition)?
    you might be able to build your own rom and switch to the branch eleven-plus, but not sure if it would actually work or not. also i am sure it would be outdated for kernel security patches and other updates. build time on my dual cpu e5-2667v2 (32 cores total), 160gb of mem, WD SN750 1tb nvme and 1gbp internet running debian bookwork with tkg kernel is about 2hrs from start to finish. i just build a twelve-plus yesterday and i was surprised that everything worked out of the box using adb sideload on the unoffical twrp. the experience recovery actually installed and worked this time. rom is very smooth or i should say smoother than it was. a few new features were added. some were moved to a different spots. magisk install was easy with the working experience recovery allowing adb sideload to flash magisk. i might actually stick with this rom for a while.
