yes. this has been happening to be since a while back. idk whats causing it. tried gsam battery monitor but still clueless. heres what the sudden drains look like. (screen was off during the drain period
I just updated to the latest android 13, so far the heating up issue seems to have stopped, but i will have to observe it for a day or so to be sure.

It's most probably this:

TL;DR: the root problem stems from changes in Google OTA infra, so can only be properly fixed by upgrading the system Google services, which is impossible with PixelOS without upgrading the ROM itself since the Google stuff is built-in (i.e. does not come from an external Gapps package that you could upgrade separately) but normal ways of upgrading Google Services do not work as they would with an actual Pixel phone. So basically just upgrade to the latest ROM.
yoo that makes so much sense. i just updated vantom kernel for now. i wont be using android 13 and will stick to 12L. i have also restricted google apps usage access. battery cannot be optimized for google or play services unfortunately. i guess we could just roll back to providing google service apps in updated flashable app packages.

@Koerschgen have you had issues with apls crashing on the latest build? And screen flickering as well
No screen flickering or crashing here.
I got crashes after dirty flashing to the January build, due to missing network permissions. But when you clean flash there should be no crashes.

I updated to the latest firmware of my region and flashed latest vantom kernel. Magisk is in use, too.

Anyone have an issue that they can't turn the phone off. When powering off the phone it just automatically restarts itself after about 15 seconds and didn't stay switched off

I clean flashed with Feb build. All was ok for a few days then the problem came back.
Its something to do with charging to 100% I believe. Doing some testing over next few days to find out

Please tell me for flashing the ROM is it necessary to: Flash the latest MIUI 13 firmware for your region? Why?
And if yes where can I find proper MIUI 13 firmware for note 10 pro to download?

Can someone give me more detailed description on how to update to latest PixelOs version? Is there a link to the v14 firmware? How should I update it? Just flash it over PixelOs and after that flash the latest PixelOs version? Should I format something? Thanks in advance

    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.

    /* Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Improvements over PixelExperience

    Device Specific Issues:
    • Slow motion in miuicamera

    • Flash the ROM only with PixelOS recovery or my builds of OrangeFox recovery or TWRP (My builds, not the official versions)
    • Flash the latest MIUI 13 firmware for your region

    Get the latest PixelOS Build for the Redmi Note 10 Pro/Max here
    Firmware for sweet

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

    • Encryption is enabled by default
    • SELinux is enforcing
    • MIUICamera from the latest MIUI release is included
    • VantomKernel is the default kernel

    ROM Kernel: Linux 4.14.290
    Stable Release Date: 12 August 2022
    Latest Release Date: 12 August 2022

    The PixelOS August update is here.

    Downloads and changelogs can be found here

    Seen a few of you who had issues with smp2p_sleepstate. Should be fixed in this build. Enjoy!
    Quick hotfix update for the July patch as I wasn't sure if we would have another Android 12 release as 13 is right around the corner.

    You can download the build on the website now
    A mirror for the build can be found here.

    - Always on Display and Ambient Display will now run at 60hz
    - Fixed an issue with the microphone being too quiet in some apps
    - Fixed an issue where the google recorder didn't want to work for some users
    - Import the new display calibration file from MIUI V13.0.10.0.SKFEUXM
    - Update the s5kgw3 camera libraries from MIUI V13.0.5.0.SKFINXM
    - Imported a few missing display blobs
    - Address Xiaomi's displayfeature & citsensorservice denials
    - Enable 24-bit audio for primary output and deep buffer
    - Added high touch polling rate
    - Disabled IORAP
    - Updated the Adreno stack
    - Possibly fixed some issues with smp2p-sleepstate
    - Disabled CFI due to causing issues regarding performance
    - Upstreamed kernel to 4.14.288
    - Other improvements and changes
    On my device I've found that sometimes my phone wasn't going to deep sleep because of smp2p_sleepstate wakelock.
    I've decided to disable this kernel module and see what happens. I'm using this configuration since few days and I'm rather happy with the results - I don't see any regressions after disabling the module and my battery drain issue is solved. At least from this particular reason.

    So I'd like to share the build.

    As always, You're flashing this at your own risk. I don't know if this will work on any other rom than PixelOS (most probably will work. I'm not sure about miui based roms. Feel free to try).

    It's regular Vantom kernel, compiled with latest commit 3c6e92509e0ad1aca8419db926b2cc82b1c5acb1 (HEAD -> courbet-12.1, origin/courbet-12.1).
    Following changes have been made in comparing to defconfig:
    < CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-VantomKernel"
    > CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-VantomKernel-Cthulhu-fhtagn"

    For best results use this with Naptime app and Google play services doze option checked.
    So does PixelOS Recovery support data decryption? It's a little hard to tell from this wording (since it is also by definition a custom recovery).

    And if it does, is there a way to use it to mount decrypted /data and tar its contents up, with SELinux labels etc.? I'm willing to get my hands very dirty if it means I can avoid setting up the phone by hand again.
    Hello, I've compiled a TWRP build that supports decrypting /data on Android 12 as well as supporting EROFS. It's a very early build but it does the job and I haven't run into any issues here. Enjoy!
