Redmi Note 8
Basic functionality is smooth, sometimes network gets disconnected in between calls. Face unlock isnt there, no advanced reboot options. I'm happy with the rom.

In notifications, there is no way to change the melody (crashes) and do not separate the volume of "calls" and "notifications"

When I make the call I don't hear any feedback that this is happening, it remains silent for as long as the phone would ring to the caller, then suddenly I hear that they answer but I have no way of knowing if it is ringing or is busy because in the call the phone goes silent.

The same thing also happened.
But not always, it is random.

Hi! I see that yesterday the first Pixel Experience 12 stable build was released for ginkgo. It is possible to dirty flash this one over the last PE11 build?

Thanks in advance and thank you for your hard work!

EDIT: Tried a dirty flash and thing went wild. Processes started crashing, so I ended up doing a clean install. 21/12 build is working beautifully with some minor bugs

I'm install the rom, and si perfect, but the battery It downloads very fast, is it normal or is it a bug?

I am looking for an alternative to xiaomi.eu for Redmi Note 8T. Does this rom work with SD card, face unlock work, NFC (bank payment) sensor work, 48 megapixel mode work?

Does this ROM support "Do not verify CA certificate" when connecting to PEAP wifi as the previous latest pe 11?
Edit: found out it does

Will it be possible to upgrade from PE12 Stable after the launch of PE12 plus? Directly without deleting and format data?

Má někdo nízké vibrace? Jsem si jistý, že se cítí nižší než pe11. Moderátor

    Hello, I unlocked the bootloader and now I can't seem to flash the recovery image successfully...

    I run the fastboot command and it says that it's successful but if I try to get into recovery (power button + volume up) I get the message saying "the system has been destroyed", after restarting it boots to MIUI normally...

    I'd appreciate if someone could tell me what to do.

    I followed installation guide and downloaded recovery image file from here.
    Gday. I was having the very same an hour ago. Tooth ache and an unsuccessful new ROM install, poor me!

    The first thing I did was installing good old TWRP. Just to see that the system was still encrypted after wiping. A few tries later (I killed the sdcard0 partition in the process; Rom installation atemp through TWRP gave me a beautiful bootloop) I finally gave up and installed the pixel recovery (using TWRP) through OTG (exFat pendrive), then pixelRom through otg, and no bootloop. Now I am free from MIUI's petty tyranny. Xiaomi is worse than the CCP officials mandating lockdown.

    TL;DR: flash TWRP through Fastboot, put the recovery and the Rom on an exFat USB stick, flash the recovery from TWRP and the Rom from the recovery.
    Thanks for the reply. I however managed to solve it on my own in the meantime.
    I also used TWRP but I had no trouble flashing the ROM with it so everything worked out in the end.

    Now I am free from MIUI's petty tyranny.

    You and me both, hooray 🎉

    And so far PE is pretty solid, it feels smoother and faster. I haven't found any serious bugs yet (hopefully never).
    BTW, if you install this ROM you will get unlimited photo storage, without compression. I didn't check the props but I'm guessing it is a OG Pixel.

    A huge thanks to the developers for this work and this perk! We love you, guys!
    Haptic feedback is very weak and there is no option to increase the intensity. Any solution plz...
    I've noticed that the built in recorder application doesn't work, in that despite having microphone access it fails to detect any audio when recording.
    Click on the Mic, use Phone instead of Pixel 5.

    In Android 11 builds. This works. But it doesn't on Android 12.

    Captioning won't work either if you downloaded offline speech regonition pack. You will need to clear Speech Services by Google app data.

    New PixelExperience 12 update

    Fixed NFC (willow)
    - Fixed audio issues with media playback
    - Fixed RIL crashing while using 2 Sim Cards
    - Fixed lost fingerprints after switching users
    - Enabled Iorap
    - Improved performances

    From now on pixel experience 12 will receive monthly updates (unless some hotfix updates), our device if fully brought up for Android 12.0 and ready for official. When PixelExperience will be officially launched ginkgo will be officially supported.
    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.
