Is it possible to downgrade without losing data? Latest firmware doesn't work very well with streamed video playing.

Thank you very much developers for bringing us Android 13 and November build, what I noticed at the beginning of installing the rom is that the phone gets too hot, after one use It slows down a bit, but sometimes it still uses a lot of system resources, you should thoroughly examine if it is a system process or something, since I only use it for one Lightweight, no games or other unnecessary software

Thank you for your work to give us the possibility of using Android 13. I will report back after 2 days of use, the installation is really simple, I did not encounter any particular problem except that the phone heats up . Over these 2 days of use, I can clearly see the difference between PixelOs and Pixel Experience. PixelOs has a few issues that could be fixed: 1: Excessive battery consumption. 2: Vibration to touch does not turn off on the home screen, you have to do more manipulation and restart the phone. 3: Slowing down the phone when browsing. Hoping that these corrections will be present in the next update. Thanks

I agree with your analysis but only for some slowdown during navigation to the point that I had to restart the system because no application was working anymore. for the consumption of the battery I have not found an excessive consumption. even today I have more than two hours of SOT with still 47% of charge left.
in any case the pixelexperience has not yet been released.

Hi, first of all thanks for work. This rom is really good.
I have a problem with my archive explorer apps. I can't access to data archives with It. The system says that i have no permissions.
Could you help me??

Comparisons are with Pixel Experience 12. (Official site).

For 3 days with PixelOS, when I use the applications for 10 minutes: youtube, internet browsing ect.. the phone heats up compared to Pixel experience 12.
The system in general is more battery intensive.

There are also slowdowns during navigation.

I currently use crDroid 8.11. My Mi 9 has only 64GB memory and "System" memory usage auf crDroid is only 3,3GB. I'd like to have Android 13, but: Has this version of PixelOS also a low memory usage?

I have found a probable problem, with the short-lived battery in our phones (screenshot). Does anyone know a remedy for this (maybe a zip package for recovery?).

If you are asking about RAM usage, my phone on PixelOS 13 uses 3,3 GB at the moment. Lots of apps installed with little tweaking of "battery optimization" option for battery hungry apps. As of storage i have 28 GB occupied right now, but it includes photos, videos, apps etc. so it's not indicative of anything :)

What a strangely coincidental value (2137) :D If you want to replace your battery you can search in Nohon official store on aliexpress. I have good experience with this brand. Buying "new" batteries on allegro or ebay can be risky. Personally after 3 years of usage, when my battery swelled I went to official repair shop. In Poland if you send phone for warranty repair it would end in "Cyfrowe Centrum Serwisowe" in Piaseczno. They use only original parts and out of warranty repairs are rather cheap. 2,5 years ago screen replacement was 520 PLN. 3 months ago battery replacement was 170 PLN. Nohon would be cheaper if you can replace battery yourself. People for whom I have replaced battery with Nohon (other Xiaomi models) are satisfied, but I did not test it thoroughly, because I don't use them as my daily drivers.

    is possible uninstall google calemdar and google foto and install xiaomi note ,xiaomi gallery.apk?thanks
    xiaomi ecosystem applications are tightly integrated into the miui system. so if you want them without any problem, then you should stick with the miui, not custom aosp.

    When I flashed PixelOS I could not connect to wifi. Looking at the thread, it seems like a few other people had the same issue.
    The same happened with PixelExperience, so this issue is not specific to PixelOS, but strangely does not appear on MIUI. The problem might have started after flashing crDroid years ago.
    Previously I used to flash TWRP_CEPHEUS_Fix_WiFi_v1.0.zip which fixed the wifi. Before flashing, the file /vendor/firmware/wlan/qca_cld/wlan_mac.bin is a symlink to a file in the persist partition, which might be corrupted on my device because it doesn't work; the fix replaces the symlink with a new wlan_mac.bin.
    Since the zip does not work on PixelOS recovery, here's what I did instead.
    • Flash PixelOS according to instructions.
    • Go through setup wizard skipping most of it
    • Install Magisk Manager, extract boot.img from PixelOS zip, patch with magisk manager, flash.
    • Extract wlan_mac.bin from the fix zip, use root adb shell to copy the file on /vendor/firmware/wlan/qca_cld/wlan_mac.bin
    • restart
    I tried adapting the fix to work on PixelOS recovery, but I had trouble accessing the vendor partition on a retrofit, so I ended up doing things manually as explained above.
    Overall, the ROM is great! I am happy to finally be able to use it.

    Hello to everyone! Given that more than two months have passed since this ROM has been updated (no new security updates, no any kind of new updates), I was tempted to switch to another ROM (Android 13) found on xda, but I really love this ROM. Thank you to the developer for all the work and the ggreat job he has done with this ROM, but I would really appreciate any news about the rough timeline of the updates in order not to give up on this amazing ROM. Thank you very much!

    Hi, clean flash is due to 2 reasons, first is source changes, source was rebased and therefore some feature related to Network permissions made clean flash recommended, and the second one is in device, i rebased trees again and did a big cleanup to unnecessary changes, so i fixed a lot of issues.
    About backup, i can't really tell, i usually backup contacts passwords and all that on Google, and the rest i do it manually
    That's a bummer... Well i guess that i won't be able to use my banking app for some time again :D Fr what's with those german banking apps that require you to get a new code via mail :'D

    Anyway i appreciate your ROM and your hard work. I'll clean flash it later this day and leave some feedback :)

    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!
