As of now (2 days of use), the battery life is good, the customization is top notch, the stability is nice and the snappiness overall is great. However, the updater is seemingly broken for now and I don't know for the ROM support as of now, last version was published on June 13th, we'll see.
the update was still in testing, it got pushed to the updater last night
updater still has a few problems, it does show the correct changelog but download verification gets failed for some reason, but atleast it will let you know if you have an update, then you can download it from xda thread.
It will be fixed in the next release..

Hello,
I've installed PixelOS there's two days ago and I'm very satisfied. I was in LOS 17.1 but with reception call issue (I was forced to wait 10 secondes before heard my contact) which was too annoying.
So I use now this ROM (release 07/07) and everything's work : good job ! Thanks a lot.
I use Open Camera to take photo and videos, and on my previous OS, I was able to switch between the differents fronts'APN. I remember that I peharps applyed an API2Camera ZIP to have this option, but I'm note sure.
Someone know how retreive this option ?
Thanks in advance.

Camera2Api is enforced in all roms from Android Pie, so its already enabled on PixelOS as well. I personally recommend using gcam mods, I will link the one i use here hopefully you will like it too.

So maybe it's a stupid question.... but I'm on Willow, so when I install this Custom Rom I'll still be on android 10? Or do I actually get android 11?

Great I've installed the ROM and it's working very nicely! 😁 But can you explain how I can activate OTA updates? Do I need to do that via orangefox? Or does it automatically work?

if you stay encrypted (means you didn't flash dfe with rom and your recovery asks for password) then leave everything as default and updater will do it's thing on its own.

Hello,

I've a problem whith my Redmi Note 8T (willow) since PixelOS installation.
I lost sensors which allow the device to detect orientation/movements.
So the screen no longer automatically orientates, compass does not work, Sky Map not allows to discover stars :)
After searching, it's seems that I've erased/wiped persist partitition when I've installed PixelOS.

So I try to backup my partition whith "[Guide] About repairing/fixing the persist partition"
This seems have to restore the magnetic sensor, but not acceloremeter and others sensors.
I try to flash persist.img (with TWRP) from MIUI12.0.3 EUR, MIUI10.3.5 EUR and MIUI12.0.3 GLOBAL Recovery but unsuccessfully...
I'm not root !
Someone have an idea ?
Thanks in advance.
Steve

    Sorry for that man, I'm also out of ideas at this point ✌️. Maybe it really needs a fresh start.
    Figured out the solution my man.
    After i gave Up When i found out that my e-banking app also didn't work i flashed xiaomi.eu rom and it worked for a while until i installed magisk turns out that they detect root access so when i turned on magisk hide everything worked flawlessly.
    Will be returning to pixel os in a couple of hours will update you

    PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
    In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

    Improvements over PE
    Performance improvements from Proton Aosp
    Adopted screenshot sounds to ringer mode
    Added gestures for three finger screenshots and double tap to sleep on lockscreen and status bar
    Added Screen Recording Customizations
    Added 3-finger swipe to Screenshot
    Added Advanced Reboot
    Allow disabling Screenshot Sounds
    Added Bluetooth headset battery indicator
    Reduced log spam verbosity
    A lot of under the hood UI fixes and improvements
    Everything is working well to be used as a daily driver

    Device Specific Issues:
    • WiFi Display
    • You tell me.

    Requirements
    • Latest Global Stable Android 11 firmware for ginkgo and willow users

    PE Recovery https://github.com/PixelOS-Devices/builds/releases/download/2021-10-23/PE-recovery.img

    Note: GApps are included, don't flash separately.

    Notes
    • Based on OSS vendor
    • Ships with QuicksilveR-v2.5 kernel
    • GApps are included
    • Enforcing Build
    • Encrypted Build

    PE Recovery is recommended if you want to stay encrypted, no custom recovery supports encryption on Android12, i.e. they won't be able to decrypt your data.
    Flashing Instructions
    Clean flash (coming from a different ROM):

    • Download ROM from the link above
    • Download Magisk v23.0 or newer (optionally)
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Format data (if encrypted)
    • Wipe system, vendor, cache, dalvik, data
    • Flash ROM zip
    • Flash latest android 11 global stable firmware (link above)
    • Reboot and voila!
    • To get root access, reboot to recovery after ROM setup and flash magisk.

    Updating to a newer build (dirty flash):
    • Wipe system, vendor, cache, dalvik
    • Flash ROM zip and magisk (optional)
    • Reboot and voila!

    Tip: Use this adb command to bring seperate WiFi and Mobile Data tiles back
    adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles),wifi,cell"

    Didn't find any camera app after the first boot. Does it have any? Would be great, if it has had MiCam port.

    The rom was originally posted on XDA Forums and has no relation whatsoever with my telegram group, I'll make a post here if the ROM gets dropped.
