I am waiting for stable pixel experience plus custom ROM Android 13 for my A72. I wish it will have the following customisation option:

1. Full screen apps; Because I cannot watch full screen immersive video in pixel experience rom;

2. Option to hide navigation bar pil to get immersive experience.

3. Built in app locker.

1) Full screen works fine, use another media player
2) magisk modules already exist to do this
3) This one is probably never gonna happen

Hey guys! I Have just pushed a new update for PE.
Changelogs are as usual on the second comment, and download links are on the main page. This will be the last "beta" android 13 release.
Note - This PE update might take up to 5 mins on first boot, dont panic if it doesnt boot immediately. Just simply force reboot by holding down power button and volume down button.

Hello. First of all, thank you very much for all your work. I'm planning to install this ROM on my galaxy A72 and I want to use it as a daily driver, so I have a question - does the fingerprint scanner work on A72?

Hey @Ryzen5950XT , thank you for the much awaited update. I'm still facing issues with calling over Bluetooth headset. It's still the same issue as before. Is there any other way around to fix the issue that I am missing?

Let me give it a try.
One more thing that I realized today after testing a non apple Bluetooth headset. It worked lol. But unfortunately, apple airpods series is not.
I'll check on lineage rom tomorrow to see if Apple Airpods work on it or not so you can have a reference.

Hi community, is it much better than official? Worth unlock bootloader???
It's another software experience, different animations and style and even sound effects, look into pixel software on Youtube since you can only know by trying, it doesn't have Samsung features but more stability compared to stock ROM, one of the best features for me is more haptics support for apps since you barely get them in one UI

    Then use odin to install those in their respective slots

    * 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

    */

    What is this?
    PixelExperience is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animation)

    Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

    Based on Android 13​


    Supported devices!
    Both variations of A52 4G and A72 (A525F and A525M and A725F and A725M) are supported, but only A525F (6/128 variant) is well tested as I have this device. A72 also has lower support as I do not own one.
