OTA update fail to apply but works in recovery.

After update my SDCard (mounted as internal) is missing: file explorer doesn't show it and file storage (from settings) crash if I try to open it (configuration menu shows like the card is attached by available space).
I did a dirty flash, it is the cause of the problem?

Probably was. I had dirty flash issues with this update as well (through recovery adb), I had to do a clean and it's working flawlessly now.

What kind of problems did you had?

Besides the SDCard thing everything is working fine for me; it's sounds more like the encryption keys was replaced by new ones or even removed during the dirt flash.
I recant that statement. I've had hookup app just stop working and hang when it's trying to use location services. & I've had the camera app a few times take photos that were just grey screen with no image or a partial image and grey screen on the rest of the image.

Wondering is it's a SD card error thing, as I'm using one as well, but I did clean install, and it reformatted the SD for internal phone storage?

I noticed that I was on slot B for some reason in recovery. I wiped data again rebooted into recovery and clean installed rebooted and was in slot A but then when I rebooted to format again before final boot it put me back over to slot b?

I'm on slot b now and can't get back to slot a, am I supposed to be on slot b? I don't understand this a/b thing

The a/b thing shouldn't matter since were using retrofit (I know it shows slot a/b but is just bug).

I did try factory reset but the SD problem still persists! I did remove the SD card from phone and did a factory reset but somehow the user data is still linked to it and camera app doesn't even open.
In recovery I can see: E: public:179_64 failed to mount /dev/block/volmgr/public:179_64: No such device

So I did a full format:
- factory reset from recovery
- installed retrofit from second post (downloaded again to be sure)
- factory reset from recovery
- reboot to recovery
- now the error message E: public:179_64... is gone
- installed the last plus version (12.1-20220523-1042)
- factory reset from recovery
- reboot to system

Then formatted the SD card as internal, rebooted; but everything in there is getting corrupt :(
- Take some picture
- Go to file explorer and open the picture, it is okay
- Reboot phone
- Go to file explorer again and now the picture is corrupt

So I did try that:
- rebooted phone
- moved data back to internal phone storage
- formatted SD as external storage
- ejected it and formatted again in PC
- reboot phone
- put SD card back in and formatted as internal again
- tested it and no luck at all, files are getting corrupt after a while/reboot

Then I removed the SD Card and tested it against H2testw in PC:
- write+verify OK
- ejected the device
- waited a couple of minutes
- put it back and tested verify again, everything is OK

Had no issue in previous version (12.1-20220418-1058) I will try it soon.

Previous version 12.1-20220418-1058 working good:
- factory reset from recovery
- installed retrofit from second post (again)
- factory reset from recovery
- reboot to recovery
- factory reset from recovery
- installed 12.1-20220418-1058
- factory reset from recovery
- reboot to recovery
- factory reset from recovery (oh boy I did it every time I could)
- formatted SD card as internal

All working good, downloaded Spotify library without any issues (~10GB of music), working after several reboots either.

For now I'm stick to this version :)

It looks like the latest updates of both 12 and 12+ are corrupt. I downloaded multiple times of each file on different computers, and they all fail to install. I had to get my phone up and running again so I downloaded 11+ and first try it installed. Now I wait to see if it all works.

I installed 12+ and I just noticed that under settings/apps it says all the Pixel apps are installed but when I look through my apps they are not there.
Also, all notification sounds will play once and after that they don't work.

    The latest version downloads but crashes on install. After that it makes you download it again.
    Happens to me too, just install via adb sideload

    Hello

    Well... I'm pretty new to this and I tried installing Pixel Experience on my Moto Z3 Play. Initially it was showing an error when trying to sideload the ROM ZIP file. I followed all the steps on the PE install guide page, then I saw here that it is necessary to install the retrofit.zip first. I installed it and after restarting, it is in this image and I cannot enter recovery.

    The question I have is, is it possible to recover it or have I lost it forever? :(

    Sorry my bad inglesh :/

    Wow.
    Thanks a lot for the quick reply. :)
    Do you know where I could have gone wrong? I'm scared to try again.
    I'm not sure about the flash. On the phone it appeared as slot b when sideloading. That's right?
    Again thanks a lot for the help.
    For a safe upgrade, you can first:
    - Go to stock rom;
    - Make the proceeds after stock (copy-partitions);
    - Flash PixelExperience android 11;
    - From Pixel 11 recovery, flash the retrofit zip linked on the how to post of this thread;
    -Update;
