Been more than a month after I returned 100% stock, but watched a video and get motivated to return for a google experience. But have some questions #1 : from instructions I understand this ROM is encrypted by default. #2: if I haven't magiksed it, will bank apps work? I don't want to return to magisk as I remember I was having for like 10 extensions just for hiding, which is terrible for system stability.

Yep encryption is on by default, but u will most likely have to root to get bank apps working. Im not sure of this since i use no bank apps so cant test.

Just curious.
Is there will be any update regards SIM 2 Issue? because im holding myself just for this single bug.
since i bought this device, I'm so tired of this Samsung's Bloated mess of an OS.
What would you suggest? is it stable enough to jump onto the ROM in its current state?

Thanks.

The rom is stable and hopefully the next version i release should fix the second sim card issue. @Simon1511 has identified the issue and has a fix thats in development already.

Hey guys, Thanks to @Simon1511 I have another update with some great changes!
In addition, I have finally stopped being lazy and built for the A72 as well.

The biggest changes in this build are the following ones:
1. He finally got audio with 2nd Sim card in calls to work!
2. The fingerprint sensor on Galaxy A72 is now working ( However you may need to hold your finger a bit tight to the sensor sometimes.)
3. Fingerprint dimming combined with Samsung's HBM!

Downloads are on the main post, along with the instructions.

Changelog:
Code:
-Switched to using Samsung's HBM implementation instead of lighting up the whole screen when touching the fingerprint sensor
-Dim the screen if touching the fingerprint sensor
-Wake the screen if touching the fingerprint sensor during screen off or AOD instead of killing doze
-Fixed fingerprint sensor on A72 by dimming the screen (You may need to hold your finger a bit tight on the sensor)
-Correctly reset brightness on fingerprint errors
-Fixed the screen not turning on again if removing the phone from your ear during a phone call
-Added custom audio impl to fix audio in calls with Sim 2
-Disabled Dolby again (doesn't seem to work correctly for us)
-Show correct fast-charging values

    Stuck in recover mode bootloop after installing PE 13 from OneUI 4.1
    Have unlocked bootloader and flashed vmbeta,
    Using pixel recovery:
    After installing latest Pe13 build in recovery I get :
    "
    script succeeded result was [1.000000]

    ERROR: recovery : failed to find payload_properties.txt

    Install completed with Status 0
    "
    Did data/factory reset->Format cache partition->And then reboot system.

    Stuck in rebooting to recovery. Message: Can't load android system. Your data may be corrupt.
    Have done factory reset multiple times and reflashed the Pe 13/ pe 12.1 plus image and then again factory reset as per guide.

    @Ryzen5950XT

    Is my phone recoverable? If yes, how so. Do help please.

    I've been using the Pixel Experience 13 for a month now, and so far I haven't found a single bug, and I don't need to enable the 90 hertz refresh rate as the ROM is very fluid. I recommend it to everyone. I appreciate your work, Ryzen5950XT.

    * 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.
    */

    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.

    Installation instructions

    • Make sure your device's bootloader is unlocked.
    • If not done before, flash disabled VBMeta with Odin in AP slot (originally posted here).
    • After that, follow the guides on the pe website: A52 | A72

    • Make sure your device's bootloader is unlocked.
    • Make sure to have the latest available version of OrangeFox or TWRP installed.
    • If not done before, flash disabled VBMeta with Odin in AP slot (originally posted here).
    • Backup all your necessary partitions before flashing this in case something goes wrong.
    • Download the Pixel Experience build for your device. Gapps are included.
    • Flash the Pixel Experience zip.
    • Optionally, flash Magisk v24 or newer right after
    • Format data in TWRP/Orangefox, otherwise you may end up in a bootloop if using encryption or coming from stock ROM.
    • Wipe metadata and cache partitions. If metadata partition isnt available in wipe menu you are on outdated twrp/ofox.
    • Reboot.
