  3. Sync PE upstream
  4. may fixed fingerprint sleep to death
  5. may fixed someone's WIFI issue due to SELinux
Seems a lot of these issues plague Lineage and you've found a fix for them, no? Would be great to have that information shared between other ROM devs for the betterment of all custom ROMs across this phone.

Updated to 15th's version, volume still has flickery audio issue on speakers, can someone confirm this is still an issue, cuz I'm starting to think it might be a hardware issue on my end. In any case, the increased volume from the previous update is still there(which is good), and there is no longer any static or very low audio from the speakers when the volume is low, so thanks a ton.

I don't think so, but I'm pretty new to this too. As far as I know it erases your data and won't let you boot into the rom. Someone experienced can correct me if I'm wrong.

I've done it. It can't erase if you don't have the stock recovery. But it doesn make the unlocked bootloader message go away. The bootloader text turns red and says that the firmware has been tampered with it something like that, so not really worth it.

Still on the 12/24 version, reporting a new bug.

If you try setting your freshrate to 60hz, it defaults back to 120hz.
Setting it to 50hz appears to work, 60 does not.

Following. @Alcatraz323 thank you for all your effort. I'm not pulling the trigger yet because of the fingerprint issue and how much effort it seems to take in order to open a banking app as it's been mentioned with using magisk and stuff as well as the random freezing. Here's to hoping those issues will get better.
 
This is really great news guys!! I did forget to mention earlier that I've also noticed that Google Assistant seems not to be working at all. It keeps saying that 'Not available for the current language'. The option is greyed out completely. I've had it on English US, English UK, English ZA, but no change. If we can verify that Google Assistant is completely working, I'll be flashing back to this ROM. :D

I've had no issues with Google assistant (English us)

I have no issue as far as functionality goes, its the Hey Google part that doesn't work. If you go to the Voice Model settings, the Hey Google setting is off and greyed out with that text 'not available in this language'.

So you're saying yours is working 100%? I'm on LOS at the moment; but I'll try and flash the new build and see if it resolves it by any chance.

I just set up voice match, and noticed that the option is indeed greyed out after setup.

    Plus version come!!! check #2 for detail

    Also, it's been a while using PE on Verizon. No problems so far. Thanks!
    I am under the impression is really is just
    1. Flash Stock OS
    2. Sit on "Welcome" screen, wait for "LTE" to show up
    (2.5 if doesn't work, go a bit further where it checks for network connection? Don't do Wi-Fi of course)
    3. Reboot and flash PE

    I'm hesitant to say this is the solution as I don't really have that much evidence or firm explanation as to why.

    Is there a way to check if some app is grabbing a camera? When I first got setup, I swear my camera app was detecting the 2nd camera and now it's not. The google camera app has "top shot" disabled suggesting something is grabbing a camera.
    Link to the post that Alcatraz323 shared initially that I used for reference in resolving my inability to connect to the Verizon network can be found here (just was on the thread to confirm accessibility):

    * The link in #2 (your quoted post) appears to have an incorrectly formatted URL

    Ultimately in regards to ensuring carrier service availability (at least with Verizon from what I can gather surrounding my own experience) it appears that the initial OTA update to 4.1 somehow lost/improperly overwrote a portion of the service definition IMS needs to properly communicate with Verizon's network. Re-flashing of the stock OS (Factory Image 9.0 - MR6) properly restored those service entries within the AndroidManifest.xml - once these were correctly present again, flashing the updated version of PE worked as expected since it was able to communicate properly with the Verizon network. (My device is also Global Unlocked, I realize that portion on my end was left out)

    The above said I haven't experienced any issues with mobile data/carrier service availability other than the aforementioned incident and after the most recent release of the PLUS, I also dirty flashed that onto my RP2 and haven't experienced a single problem since.
    -----

    Regarding the grabbing of a camera, between all three camera applications I have installed on my device ( GCamera Lite (com.google.android.apps.cameralite)*, GCamera (com.android.MGC_8_4_500)* and Open Camera (net.sourceforge.opencamera), both front facing and rear facing cameras are detected without issue. The Top Shot feature IS disabled in the GCamera application by default however I am unaware of whether it is able to be enabled as I haven't played with the settings. That said, according to the information provided on the help link next to the option there is a possibility it relies on specific Pixel hardware or simply hasn't been fully integrated/configured to function on the RP2 yet.

    * These two applications are included in the PE image by default as noted a few times through various posts within this thread.
