HOW THE HECK DID YOU GET A STABLE ROM OUT SO FAST?????? man i give you kudos, how did you improve the memory management? my crosshatch is currently running idle at like 2.8 GB used at idle on stock, so its definitely nice to see a 12 Based custom rom

There is a "dismiss all" button in the notification shade. On my pixel 4a on stock rom the notification shade sometimes gets bugged colors, i haven't noticed this issue yet on 3XL with this ROM. Might be because i haven't used it enough for the bug to show up.

yeah i think so, flash the latest stock then this one
have you had random apps close/severe battery drain randomly?

Error 21 when sideloading the zip. TWRP also would not proceed past splash screen and other thread sources suggested recovery. Method I just tried:

Recovery mode (Power + Volume down to enter Fastboot mode - volume keys to scroll and power button to select Recovery Mode - Power + Volume up (reovery mode shows after approx 10 seconds hold)) > Apply update from ADB > "adb sideload PixelExperience.zip"

Running A12 already via OTA so attempting this really for the security patches. TWRP 3.5.2.10-0-crosshatch.img. ADB 31.0.3-7562133.

Could I just dirty flash using another (earlier) verion of TWRP or do I actually need to wipe data/factory reset in recovery mode? Or am I missing something else entirely?
use the lineage OS build of their recovery img, flash to the B slot "fastboot flash boot_b lineage_XXXX.img" then reboot to recovery. if it says signiture invalid, allow it, also it will DOWNGRADE to an older build of 12, so allow it (a timestamp error and lineage will warn you)

Hey guys, thinking about taking this build. Flashing custom roms for many years now and I'm shocked at the lack instructions for this one. Also, where are the links to the builds? Which TWRP - saying the latest??
Don't use TWRP, get the lineage OS recovery image and flash it to slot B, then use it to adb sideload it, TWRP has some issues with Android 12. But Definitely use this ROM, stable, lighter and a bit better on app memory management, I'm currently running it on my daily device while I wait for my Z Fold 3 to come in. No bad bugs or crashes at all and its snappy.

I'm sending this message from. My Pixel 3XL on Pixel experience 12 BETA (this ROM definitely does not seem like a beta, it's way too stable haha)

The links in the description is:

There are two files - assuming the 11/24 file (newer one) is the image to flash?
PixelExperience_crosshatch-12.0-20211124-0226-BETA.zip
Yea that's the image to flash, flash the latest, lineage OS recovery will warn you about a signature issue because technically your downgrading the firmware back a little, so allow it and make sure your doing a clean install, dirty flash will cause issues

Need some feedback please. My 3XL was on firmware 12.0.0 (SP1A.210812.015, Oct 2021) with an unlocked bootloader. Flashed Lineage recovery as suggested:
"lineage-18.1-20211130-recovery-crosshatch.img"


C:\Pixel 3XL Flash>adb reboot bootloader
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
* daemon started successfully

C:\Pixel 3XL Flash>fastboot devices
xxxxxxxx fastboot

C:\Pixel 3XL Flash>fastboot flash boot lineage-18.1-20211130-recovery-crosshatch.img
Sending 'boot_b' (65536 KB) OKAY [ 1.541s]
Writing 'boot_b' OKAY [ 0.470s]
Finished. Total time: 2.645s

Boot to recovery - and sideload:
PixelExperience_crosshatch-12.0-20211124-0226-BETA

Attached is a screenshot of the failed attempts

Based on the results I flashed to Android 11 - crosshatch-rq3a.211001.001-factory-9d99e161 and restarted the install - exactly the same steps as above, and the SAME EXACT error message displayed. So I disconnected the USB cable and rebooted. It worked. It installed correctly

Yeah I had that error but ignored it, seems like maybe the ROM was built off of the pixel 4 and was just a port, idk tho, the only thing I noticed was when setting up the fingerprint, the demo preview was different

Had to wait for enough dowtime to be able to tackle the install. Took me a few goes (well after a decade of doing it I still feel a little stressed thinking I'll brick it in the process) but with all your helpful tips I got there in the end. Thanks!! Love hanging onto older handsets by throwing on a more recent security backed ROM and this one looks awesome so far.

not sure what i missed but i was on October firmware. i factory reset then set my active slot to b. i flashed the latest lineageos recovery (lineage-18.1-20211207-recovery-blueline.img) for p3 blueline. then from there i booted recovery and factory reset again. from there i started to sideload PixelExperience_blueline-12.0-20211124-0348-BETA. i get this error.

i also allowed the downgrade and the signature change. but the device is in a boot loop

    Yeah I should have mentioned I just installed it yesterday, 1/1/22. I'm still shaking it out to see what's what. I haven't found any problems at all. I would prefer more customization on the status bar, though I'm likely just spoiled coming from an Android Q PixelExperiencePlus ROM on the Pixel 2XL.
    just hang tight im sure once they make rom 100% stable they'll add the status bar mods

    did you flash the PE recovery rom as per the instruction?

    I follow strictly the instruction from the PE installation guide, the new rom install without any error at all. I come from stock android 12.
    i do exactly everything the guide said, so weird cuz it work on my 3xl but not on this one

    Can anyone confirm if this ROM allows banking to function?
    PayPal is working but it's the only app of that kind I'm using. Netflix and Disney+ are also working. I'm not using Magisk though.

    The pixel launcher in this rom is from which update? November or October? Is it from pixel 5 or 6 pro?
    Launcher indicates Pixel 6 Pro when it's setting up. System settings indicate security update December 5, 2021.

    How do you compare this with stock on crosshatch?
    Same features, a bit smoother and better memory management. Most important for me is up to date security patches.
    Sorry for asking this as it seems I should probably a already know but....
    What is the procedure for fishing this?
    Is it a fastboot installation method?
    Or does it require a lineage boot image?
    Sorry if these questions are noobish.

    download latest twrp for crosshatch
    unlock your bootloader
    in your PC using fastboot: fastboot boot twrp.img
    in twrp, select adb sideload, connect phone to your PC
    in your PC using adb: adb sideload lineage.zip
    do not reboot, in twrp do a factory reset (it was probably already reset when unlocking bootloader)
    reboot
    done

    BTW safetynet and cts are ok using latest magisk stable, selecting all apps on magisk hide allowed me to use banking apps and microsoft intune portal
