Well, something similar. Playing CoD with bluetooth headphones, when connectimg the cable to charge, sound disappears. I have to switch off/on bluetooth and sound back to normal through bluetooth.

Hope it helps.
I tried everything, nothing worked. Reset bluetooth, audio, nothing.

In my case, the phone gets completely frozen after trying to play any audio, to the point where I can't even turn the screen on or off.

I've just flashed another A12 ROM, the problem went away. Bummer, because I was really liking this ROM :/

According to the telegram group this is a kernel problem that will hopefully be fixed soon. For now you can just turn the cable upside down (yeah I know with USB C it seems this makes no difference, but it does).
That works well for me.

and so. after a week of use, I had problems. first, the worst. my phone turns off at random moments when using it. today it turned off 5 times. this happens when surfing in the browser or writing messages, etc. but if I listen to music or watch YouTube, then everything is fine.
Secondly, if I use my phone (I watch YouTube), my phone warms up when charging from the USB port of the computer, and it loses charge faster than it charges. the accu battery application says that when charging from the USB port, the phone is DISCHARGED at a speed of 200-400 mAh

I use the ROM since official release and phone never turned off.
Also charging is normal here (besides that headphone bug). Wifi-Hotspot also works.

I don't know, but all these problems on your phone are strange.
I followed install steps 100% and did not add any stuff like magisk.

When you wipe/format data using the PixelOS recovery, does it wipe only the /data partition or the internal storage as well similar to "Format data > Yes" in TWRP?

Great job with the rom! it looks spectacular and so far I haven't had any problems.

But I have two questions, I noticed that google photos detects the phone as a pixel and does not count the mb of the photos I upload. is it possible that google will ban my account when using google photos?

And is it possible to close the bootloader with this rom? I am very newbie and I would like to know if it is possible.

Thank you very much! 💯

s there any way to use fingerprint unlocking at the same time when the screen color is changed to "saturated"? Because when the screen color is changed to saturated, my fingerprint unlocking will always fail. Thank you dev, great work

Hello everyone!
Sorry that I haven't updated XDA. I fixed link of super_empty.img, which was deleted before. Thanks to Rakib Hasan for pointing it out.

Also, I've been working on PixelOS A13, don't ask for ETA, but all I can say is that device side is ready (Thanks to Evasi0nXiao for trees). I'm just waiting for source and release.
Clean flash for a13 will be mandatory so prepare your backups xD.

Edit: about the <no sound while charger is plugged> issue, will be gone for A13 so don't worry.

Here you can read more about PixelOS A13!
> Teaser 👀

Hope y'all have a nice day!

    Hey @balgxmr, have you considered adding ANXCamera by default with your ROM? It would be awesome, I think.
    if it is of interest to someone with the gcam Hasli version LMC8.4_R14, everything works (slowmotion and wide angle lens). The configuration with the xml file, I finally solved also the lateral distortion in the shots with wide angle lens.

    on the site there is no file for MI 9, I downloaded it from telegram. I am attaching mine with all the changes already made, including the Wide camera enabled. I hope to be proved helpful.

    I had also enabled the front camera change without restarting the application.
    I'd like to try this gcam version but can't file the setting file for MI9: do you know where to find it?

    Can someone explain me what is he difference between normal and retrofit rom. I did some research but overall i dont understand it if its better or whatever
    Sorry for offtop

    Google introduced 'Dynamic Partition' technology with the release of Android 10, and they require every devices launching with Android 10 and up to use 'dynamic partition'.

    Since Cepheus was released with Android 9, it was not required to use 'Dynamic Partition' technology, but google made a way to implement 'dynamic partition' to devices like cepheus. and those devices - which launched before Android 10 - are called 'retrofit'. and 'retrofit rom' means the 'dynamic partition technology' is implemented to it.

    'dynamic partition' literally allows the device to manage storage partitions dynamically, so the device will use storage more efficiently, and it allows new features like 'Seamless Update' possible.

    but since partitions are not strictly divided into small segments, it increases complexity to find and access specific segment. that's why the TWRP recovery is struggling to follow up the newest Android versions.
