FAQ:
1. Verizon carrier out of service
Here is step to solve

2. Can you update GPU OpenGL and Vulkan driver?
NO. Cause Razer used a modified a630 gpu firmware, Qualcomm generic new gl and vulkan can't compat with it. The only hope is Razer get revived and update stock rom so we can take it.

3. Can you fix resolution switch
NO. Razer kernel switch painful. Tried lot's of times and the only way to use 1080 is kill 2k and set 1080 as only one, same as the only 2k now

The only downside is /data not supported f2fs,it must be ext4,or power on failed。It may also be my error。

Enjoying the ROM. Thank you for your hard work Alcatraz323!

I noticed the feature Quick Tap to start actions prevented the CPU from deep sleep and caused excessive battery drain. Turning off the feature didn't seem to correct the issue until the phone was rebooted. Not sure if this is just a limitation of the feature.

I also noticed the CPU mhz min was set to 576 instead of 300 and wasn't sure if this was expected.

Also had a question. Is it possible for the 2nd cluster of CPU cores to park and go offline? It looks like they are online at their min 825mhz while cluster 1 idles. Wasn't sure if this was something RP2/PixelExperience could do.

QuickTap is from gapps, can't do anything from my side, you may ask Google to solve it.
As for the cpu related, every config is copied from Qualcomm or Razer, so it's expected

Hi Alcatraz, thank for this rom! I'm having issues with decoding latency while use moonlight to game stream on A13. On 12, decoding latency was low (around 15ms) and decoder was OMX.qcom.video.decoder.hevc. On A13 there is noticable decoding latency (up to 200ms) and the decoder is now c2.qti.hevc.encoder (see screenshot). Is this something you can help address? Anything other information I can provide to help troubleshoot?

That may take serveral version to optimize, too complicated for the codecs on rp2

Anyone having an issue with fast chargers? I have two original razer phone 2 chargers and every time i plug in the charger i constantly get the charging animation and sound as if i was unplugging and plugging in. This happens only with those chargers, it happens in safe mode and with new cables as well. No issues with 3rd party chargers but charges at normal speed. Anyone know about or have this issue?

I don't have the original charger, but with xiaomi 120w charger it activates fast charge and don't have the "plug and unplug issue"

That Place
Razer Phone 2
is there a specific reason that full wipe before flashing from 12 to 13 is required? I dirty flash updated from 12+ to 13+ before reading this without wipe and everything SEEMS to be fine. Also is this build root compatible or not currently?

    to me, this never happen, it works flawless (even camera feels works better than 12.1). i'm waiting to fix the screen hz issue to say this is perfectly recommended for stable daily use

    pd: maybe you need to delete all data before flash ? (i do it and nothing work wrong)
    Will fix in next
