The rom is excellent but the only issue is it charges very slowly. I don't know how to solve it.

Hello, I've been having this problem since I installed the rom and it persisted after updating. Sometimes when I lock the screen I'm unable to unlock it, neither the fingerprint or the button works. My only option is resetting the phone. Sometimes it resets on it's own. This happens like once or twice every week (or every few days). Other than that, the rom is very good.

Attempt to invoke virtual
method 'java.lang.String
android.os.storage.VolumeInfo.getId()' on
a null object reference.

I have yet to have a positive upgrade experience. I've been putting off updates, because every update I've done has ended with wiping and reinstalling everything.

If you're never going to use the call recorder, just disable it. It's only consuming a tiny fraction of space on the system partition that you don't even have regular access to. If its existence in a disabled state is still distressing to you, you can Install Magisk, and use something like Titanium backup to try to remove it.

I'll try, but call recording is integrated only into the phone app or the system?
Sorry for bad english

After flash rom with twrp or orangefox, flash pixel recovery with adb and try to update
I've had the pixel experience recovery installed since February, and I used the built in update system to download and install the update. It downloads, reboots to recovery, installs, reboots, hangs, and reboots itself to recovery. Any amount of rebooting leaves you cycling the end of that loop, hang and back to recovery.

Did you decrypt data storage before flash pixel recovery?

With what? The last I looked, NO recovery can decrypt userdata on Android 12.

Also, I shouldn't have to do that for a monthly update, that SHOULD only need to write to /system and /vendor.
You can disable auto encryption with DFE but as i understand it is not your case. I can just tell you to try with different recovery.

I've had the same problem in several custom roms but not Miui, when I plug the charger the phone does charge but the battery icon doesn't show the lightning.

New July update via OTA hanged at 99% during the preparation stage. Had to hard reset. Device errored when booting (broken Android robot with word error) before auto-restarting to working (June) OS. Tried again, installation prep successful this time with device auto restarting but then back to same error screen and reboot, as before.

Will try manually installing via recovery in a mo. Running a Note8T/willow.
Edit: Worked. Guess I'll clear the cache and storage of the system update app and try again next month.

Some apps (Spotify, Netflix, Google maps) randomly stop registering sd card, even though settings app shows it's connected, only fix is to disconnect SD card via settings and connect it back again, but it's annoying especially in Spotify because you have to redownload the whole library.
Edit: Formatting SD card helped
Edit 2: I was on a bike trip and it happened again, I guess the SD card doesn't hold in the slot much well, but again settings showed it was connected and Google files showed files on the SD card but SD card option was missing in Spotify. I don't really know how to fix it, but this never happened on the build from June.

    Hey ! I'm thinking of install this ROM on my Redmi note 8 because MUI is very buggy. Can someone share their experience of using pixel experience (the main thing for me is battery life)
    Good evening!
    i've had PE12 for a while now.

    MIUI (android11):
    - MIUI got too annoying, the all pervasive "Security" app removing app battery optimizations constantly. also the really aggressive background app killing made things like using my banking app to pay for something in another app impossible.
    - i really liked the ultra wide camera

    PE12 (android12):
    - i can use banking apps again!!!
    - i encountered many restarts - interestingly the same happened on MIUI when it upgraded to android12 - these have calmed down on both systems
    - [UPDATED] default camera is basic AF. installed GCamator which installed a version of gcam that doesn't crash. ultra wide pictures are available by enabling Double Tap to Change Lens !!
    - embedded video is in the wrong colours! people's skin is purple. very weird. only happens in some apps.

    overall i'm very glad i moved. MIUI is garbage, but there are many features i miss still. i hope this helps!


    P.S. yeah, the battery life is not as good, but MIUI's overkill in this area was the reason i got rid of MIUI

    Thanks for sharing your experience :D. I'll move on pe when I'll find a GCam mod who work on this ROM :)
    i've already got an update about that! i installed GCamator, which chose a version of gcam that works!
    fyi, it says it installed `gcam 8.2` for `android 10` 🤷

    from messing around in the settings i got the ability to swap to ultra-wide lens also!!! very happy here :)

    i just wanted to echo what others have already said here:
    1. the PE recovery doesn't work, leads to very scary message about system destroyed, i used TWRP recovery instead. tip: you have to be careful not to let MIUI boot again or it will remove your new recovery.
    2. the OTA updates dont work, need to manually install with sideload

    I have flashed this rom on my 8T willow, the process was simple and quick. So far everything seems to work well. I was able to install MAGISK for the few root apps I use like adaway. My banking apps work, as does netflix and government apps that usually complain on rooted devices. Safety net passes even after root. The phone is more responsive, the battery life is much better. NFC works.

    The only small issues seems to be the camera, the one that comes in the rom is ok, it works well, but lacks features. I tried to install several versions of the MIUI camera, all crash, as does the google camera from play store. I tried open camera and picai camera, both work but the banding is terrible which which appears on the photos making them no good.

    I will use this from now as my daily phone, it is fantastic! I hope the camera can be improved or a version of the MIUI camera can be used. You have given life to my old phone, I was so sick of it and ready to buy a new one.

    Thanks so much for your effort!
    Ok, so an update, I am obsessed with getting a decent camera, I tried many from the app store and wasn't happy with them so I ended up flashing ANXCamera. The version I am using is for Android 11 but it works on 12 After some trial and error everything works with the exception of the portrait option. I had issue with the 48mp option to but it is working now. The files I flashed in order from camera.aeonax-dot-com are: MiuiCore-D-MagiskModule-20211105024254.zip, ANXCameraUnity.Light.190R.BountifulDistantHapuka.zip, 48MPFixQ_181.GlossyIntelligentCock.zip. I did try newer versions of the 48MPFix, but non of the others allowed me to use the 48mp camera.

    I hope that helps someone.
