PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies. We aim to provide an experience similar to Google Pixel phones with numerous performance enhancements and a small amount of useful additional features.

Code:
/* 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.
*/

Just flashed it, and it's working amazingly! Most of the animations are very smooth and the device's performance is great! There are a few weird things though, such as the Android easter egg constantly crashing whenever the cats try to pop up. Also the opening animation from turned off screen is a bit sluggish and when it enters the previous app, the corners aren't rounded off. But other than these bugs, I haven't anything else weird yet. I'll be keep on using it for a few days to see how it performs on a full day usage.

Changelogs 16/02/2023

- Sync with the PixelOS February patch
- Fix speaker calls issue
- Fix VoLTE issue (maybe?)
Great ROM but sadly Google Fi data isn't working for me. I think it has something to do with the build prop spoofing of the Pixel 5. It sees the network, I get calls and texts, but for whatever reason data just connect. I hope you can fix this.

Do you have your carrier's access point names set correctly? I had some issues with mobile data back on MIUI, and this has fixed the problem for me

Google Fi doesn't have APN settings. That's what kinda makes this whole thing weird. If a ROM tries to spoof a newer Pixel (such as this ROM which pretends to be a Pixel 5) it tries to connect to towers and use features that the our device doesn't support. I've attached a ss of my APN settings on my Pixel 7. Only way I could think of fixing this is editing the build.prop on the ROM itself.

Hello! Unfortunately in my country I don't have access to this type of service so I didn't know about the problem, although maybe I can't do much since it will probably be a problem with the source code of the rom, the January patch of PixelOS was changed from pixel 7 to 5 for similar problems, I would appreciate it if you edit the build.prop and tell me how it went!

    Been trying this rom for a bit and it's working perfectly! There are some bugs related to bluetooth/nearby devices (pixel buds not being detected automatically) and wireless screen casting (wfc app causes problems), but otherwise it's a great rom, keep up the good work!
    Thank you very much for telling me! I'll try to see if I can fix it for the next build!
