Wrong thread mate. You'd have to ask the developer of OrangeFox recovery and from what I've seen, that thread is basically dead at this point.
Thanks mate but the way i see that i am asking if a particular feature is working on this ROM or not hende i believe i am in the correct thread

There is an unofficial thread for Orange fox for this devic and it is somehow active and i will ask there as well

I get ya mate. I've tried unsuccessfully to get OrangeFox working on the previous build of PixelOS so I'm assuming it definitely won't work on this release.
The annoying thing is, OrangeFox worked perfectly on PixelOS 2 releases ago. I used it and loved it, hence why I tried so hard to get it running again on the previous build, but all I did was mess up my PixelOS installation and I had to further and flash everything from scratch.
Hope that helps 👍

Looks like my device is bricked. I was on EliteRom. I followed the instruction as mentioned. Flashed boot.img (fastboot flash boot_ab boot.img) then fastboot reboot recovery, then format from there then "adb sideload firmware.zip". At this stage the the sidloading stuck at 27%. I waited for more than 10 minutes and then unplugged th cable. Then somehow the sideloading continued in the phone part although PC showed error since cable was removed. Then I selected "Reboot to recovery". It didn't boot to recovery neither showed any logo. Since then it's dead. PC maked sound on connecting and displays "USB device not recognized". Mi flash tool also detects it but unfortunately gives error on flashing ROM.

I need help on this if this is a fixable issue. Thanks in advance. By the way bootloader was unlocked already which is obvious .
Check Device Manager > Ports > If your phone shows up as Qualcomm QDLoad9008. It's bricked.
Try to flash with Xiaomi Flash Tool. If unsuccessful, stuck with "EDL authrization error". 100% you're screwed.
Now either go buy a EDL flash tool (~ $2 per attempt, I can't to name them here) or find the russian guy on telegram then have them remote in your PC to flash (~$30 I think).
Seriously, no way around, Xiaomi makes EDL flash stupid hard.

Guys have respect and gratitude to the developer, remember that he is doing an excellent and difficult job without earning anything for it. If you're not happy, learn to code and create your own ROM.

I do respect the dev. I just got a shock when I found out the hard way that I can't downgrade. I never actually meant any disrespect. It was just the panic.
I was able to flash 13 again and have to set my phone up from scratch but I've got backups so it won't take too long.
With that being said, if anybody knows a way of downgrading, I'd love to hear it.

Why would you want to downgrade? This version fixed the gestures randomly not responding, which was a huge problem with android 12. The previous pixelOS version also had a problem with randomly restarting the phone, freezing apps and overall extremely slow. This version actually works as a daily driver (even if its a beta). So in my opinion its A LOT more usable compared to the old Android 12 versions.

tho it still got some problems:

* Face Unlock not available

* Cant turn off Auto brightness from control panel (Newest update actually fixed the random auto brightness spikes while in dark rooms. So the auto brightness is actually reliable now.)

* 64MP mode doesnt work at all. Switching to 64MP with the MIUI camera app "softlocks" it until you force quit it through settings.

Call screening and advanced restart are also missing, plus I feel like this has worse battery life. I seemed to get more life out of a full charge on 12 compared to 13.
And also you can't access Google assistant by pulling up from the corners on 13. This creates a problem for me since we have nest speakers in the house so I can't get assistant to do phone specific things like calling somebody because the speakers always take priority over the Hey Google command.

Yeah thats something ive missed. Advanced restart is something ive not noticed either, but i feel like i dont really need it, i can just boot into bootloader the normal way etc.

Battery life is also something that ive noticed. It definitely feels like it got worse battery life on Android 13 than 12, but when checking the battery drainage in settings, it doesnt actually perform any worse than before. You probably get at most another 30 min of battery life on android 12, but i rather have working gestures and a system that doesnt freeze every 5 min. :/

Also you can still access the Google assistant by pulling in from the corners, just gotta enable it!

How do I enable the corners? I've looked in settings and must have missed it

    PixelOS Update! (27/11/2022)

    Dirty flash works, just sideload or flash from sdcard.

    Changelogs:
    - Added support for aptX codecs
    - Xiaomi Parts improvements
    - Fixed an issue where some websites wouldn't load
    - Added support for WiFi MAC randomization

    FAQ:
    1. My phone is getting too hot and battery is draining unusually.
    - This is probably because Pixel Launcher hogging CPU resources, you can try turning off "People" and "Search the web" feature from "Search your phone" option in Pixel Launcher settings.
    Most importantly, uninstall system updates for Android Intelligence System. [thanks to @Iiznuone4ya [TG] for pointing this out.]

    2. My MIUI Camera app doesn't open.
    - I would recommend clean flashing this build in that case.

    Is aptx hd adaptive supported by this phone / rom? I have a tws with aptx hd adaptive support, yet I can't use the codec
    Yes this phone support it and it was working on this ROM, for the Android 12 version. It seems that it's now broken on the new Android 13 version.

    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.

    Could you send a more detailed installation tutorial please?
    After struggIing a little bit I've finally done it. I didn't have any knowledge about any of it before doing this. So I'm not an expert but here is a more detailed guide:

    - Assuming you unlocked your bootloader. If you didn't, first you need to unlock it: Bootloader Unlocking Guide

    - Download the Latest Android Platform Tools and after exctracting it, move it to the main "C:" folder.

    - Download Recovery (boot.img) and move it to the same "Platform Tools" folder that we copied to the "C:"

    - Download ROM and don't exctract it or rename it. Also move it to the same folder.

    - Download Latest Firmware and also move this to the same folder that we copied to the "C:"

    - Download Mi Flash Tool. After downloading it, open the program and select the driver tab and install it.

    - Activate the Developer Options in your phone by Settings > About Phone > Tap on MIUI Number 7 times.

    - Search "Developer Options" in the settings and open it. There is an "Usb Debugging" option, enable it.

    - Connect your phone to the PC. And choose the File Transfer Mode from your phone's notifications.

    - Turn off your phone. After that press the Volume Down + Power Button together a few seconds until you see it enter into the Fastboot mode.

    - Open the Platform Tools folder that we moved in to the "C:" and type "cmd" into the Windows Explorer's folder direction bar and press Enter.

    - Type "adb shell" in to the command prompt that opened. (If it didn't recognise the command, type ".\adb shell" and use ".\" before any command I give after this.)

    - Type "fastboot devices". You should see your device. If you couldn't, then check the drivers or install the drivers again from Mi Flash Tool. If you still can't see your device and also can't see it in the Device Manager(Windows) then you probably using a diffrent USB-C cable. Try using the original one. If it still didn't solve the problem, try a diffrent PC or an USB Output.

    - Type "fastboot flash boot boot.img". You should see it installing. Wait before it finishes.

    - Type "fastboot reboot recovery". You should see your phone entering into the recovery mode. If it didn't, press Power Button few seconds until it shot down. Then press Volume Up + Power Button few seconds until you see it entering into the recovery mode.

    - By using Volume Up and Down and Power Buttons you can navigate the recovery menu from your phone. So select "Wipe Data/Factory Reset" and confirm.

    - After that go back to the Main Menu and select "Apply update".

    - Open the command prompt from your PC again if you closed it and type "adb sideload
    PixelOS_lisa-12.1-20220622-1650.zip" (the ROM file should be named this. If your file's name is diffrent, type that instead.)

    - It should start installing. If this didn't, then you probably missed some steps from this guide. So please check that if you have the latest Platrfom Tools(adb) and that you download it from the official site. Also don't open it from the PowerShell Window, open it from the "cmd" like I said and make sure that it's in the main "C:" disc. Also try closing and opening again your PC and your phone before proceeding the second time.If it didn't start after all this and said cannot read the file, then you should try this: Large Adress Aware Program .

    - Only do this next 2 steps if there is new firmware update or you are flashing this rom from any other rom. If you are just updating your ROM and there is no new firmware update, ignore this next 2 steps.

    - After installing sideload reboot to recovery again. Then go into the "Apply Update" again from your phone.

    - Open the command prompt from your PC again type "adb sideload fw_lisa_miui_LISAGlobal_V13.0.4.0.SKOMIXM_0508eaacfa_12.0.zip" (the firmware file should be named this. If your file's name is diffrent, type that instead.)

    - After installing, navigate trough recovery menu again and select the "Reboot System".

    - It's Done!!!

    It's not modded in any sort, the sources used by PE or most other roms are open source and anyone can fork them and modify them according to their requirements, that's exactly what I did. This is not a GSI/ ported rom, it has been properly compiled from the sources.
