hi a friend want to change from MIUI to this custom ROM the bootloader is still locked and got MIUI 12.5.7. I read that in previous ROM a downgrade was necessary for a firts time install, this is still necessary to avoid hard brick?

Greetings, I hope you are all in good spirits.
First of all, thanks for the fork for the Android 12 version.

Visually, A12 is insanely beautiful and Pixel Experience Edition to boot, so no third-party crap (like I loathe Xiaomi's MIUI - way too loaded and visually an insult).

All in all, you've done a great job.

I still have a few complications, but I see them more as teething troubles.

  • Bluetooth connection (headphones) very unstable + too short range (max. 15cm, otherwise connection loss) - is actually due to the Pixel Experience Rom, both A11 and A12. The connection is stable for several meters via Miui.
  • Mobile data has a slightly weaker signal.
  • USB tethering (both sharing wifi and via mobile data works rather changeably, sometimes not at all, wifi is a bit more stable).
  • When scrolling, there is often screentearing / visible screen tearing or even stuttering, especially in the Google Play Store or on larger vertical lists.

I have to mention the following positively:

- Installation was very easy, if you follow the recommendations.
- Visually a blast
- Rooting / Magisk installation very simple
- Play Store certification
- Fingerprint & screenshot function usable out of the box without workarounds

And lastly, really love you guys for still breathing some life into the old Begonia!

Stay healthy & have a nice evening.

Hi, I've got through the same problem but managed to fix it in the end.

Guess it's a vbmeta problem. You have to:

1 - Extract the vbmeta.img from the actual rom on device then flash it.

2 - Flash an old TWRP (compatible with the android version in device)

3 - Flash MIUI 12.5+ and then flash and boot Dynamic TWRP.

4 - Flash PE12 (yes, will be errors in the end on twrp, but after 2 reboot to system it will begin normally.

Don't matter what, I always come to the same problem going with MIUI 12.0. instead of 12.5+.

I don't know what exactly cause the problem, but this solved for me.

Hi! I installed Pixel Experience 12 falling the official PE website instructions, step by step, and everything went just as expected. The problem is when I try to update the system using the update area, it downloads the files normally, but when I press update, it reboots into TWRP and does nothing, just that, reboots into TWRP. I also noticed some errors on TWRP's console output. I have 2 errors: "Failed to mount '/system_root' (Device or resource busy)" and "Failed to mount '/vendor' (Device or resource busy)", witch I have no idea if it's related to the update problem. So, I want to update my phone and don't want to lose my data. Is there hope or am I doomed?

I'm also experiencing a bluetooth connectivity issue. Very short BT range.

Already tried the following:
12.5.5 global to PE 12/0121-0746
12.5.5 india to 12.5.6(ota update) to PE 12/0121-0746
12.5.1 global to PE 12/0121-0746


edit: BT works perfectly after flashing the PE, but connectivity problem will show after restarting the phone

those errors are perfectly normal. you can manually update it by locating the update files (should be in /sdcard somewhere)

Hello, this is observed by all users
I have an android 11 build and there are also bars on the boot screen.
This is most likely a bug in the official firmware.
It was also observed on the official firmware.

I am now using PE 12, I have no other issues except for the miracast. My phone cannot find any wireless display after updating to this rom. I have tried using other phones and it works, so the issue is with the rom.

    Signature spoofing is like presenting your device to Google as Pixel 6 Pro instead of RN8P.

    It helps with unlocking device-specific features like higher FPS options in games like PUBG, call recording support, unlimited Google Photos backup etc.

    But it can break Hey Google because Pixel 6 Pro uses a separate module for Hey Google which doesn't work well with RN8P.
    Oh, I did not do that, I had a fresh install of PE12+ and the assistant was not working, after I did the steps I wrote it worked.

    I was experiencing a lot of stutters and lag in scrolling. I tried a bunch of solutions but nothing worked and also there isn't any material on the internet about this.

    However the things that worked for me are
    1) Turn off digital wellbeing.
    2) Turn off live translation [Most effective]
    (Settings>System>live translation)

    Although there are still some stutters but this has improved the experience a lot.

    If you guys find anything please lemme know.
    Peace ✌️
