A bunch of customizations!

The System Partition is too small, so some GAPPs are removed.
Some GAPPs related functions might not work.
You might want to flash another GAPPS package to complete them.

That's actually such a good back story. Flashing the ROM as we speak.
Here I encountered a problem that "adb sideload" in TWRP will stuck and is not working, that's why I uploaded the magisk patched boot image. I'm not sure if that's because of the TWRP's problem or my phone's (since it has some issues with the USB port), could you please test the ADB Sideload and see if it works?

If that's the TWRP's problem, I'll also build another recovery and see if I can fix that. (installing updates will be terribly complicated on Android 12 without ADB Sideload, since TWRP cannot decrypt userdata...)

Sideload seems to work for me.

I noticed that despite turning off the "at a glance" widget it settings it doesn't go away even after a SystemUI and just system reboot.
This is how Pixel Launcher designed. The switch for "at a glance" is only to hide the weather, events, etc. information under the date, turning it off won't hide the whole widget.

If you want to hide that entirely, try Lawnchair 12 alpha.

Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet since kdrag0n's theming engine only works with Pixel Launcher. Also, ArrowOS 12 has the ability to hide the "at a glance" widget.

    Changelog - February 7, 2022
    - Fixed Bluetooth.
    - Now there are two variants of builds:
    1. REDUCED: reduced GAPPS is included, some functions might not work, but there is 500MB of free space in /system for you to flash another GAPPS package.
    2. FULL: more complete GAPPS is included, most of the functions should be fine but the /system is very full.

    Just because your phone's draw back you gave a new a12 rom to our pixel 2xl thank you coz evox stoped updates to 2xl & wanted to know will you continue building this rom for 2xl ?
    I can't promise, but I'd say that I'll continue building this ROM monthly when a new security patch is available.

    Changelog - January 16, 2022
    1. January security patch.
    2. Added "Setup Wizard", since some people need it to restore their data from Google account.

    NOTE: since the system partition size is too small, a lot of GAPPS are removed so there might be some GAPPS related stuffs not working. I'm trying to figure out a workaround, maybe in the next build.

    Is there a January update, notes, changelog?
    Evox just merged January security patch today. But I'm having some trouble building it, seems like there's something wrong in the source, just wait now, I'm trying to solve it...
