personally, I don't think so. It keeps draining even when it isn't active, while I'm using wifi and that only. The only time it stops draining is when I enable airplane mode. This only occurred with the later android 12l builds and not the early betas
Even if you aren't using data, poor signal drains battery because the signal is still used to receive / make calls.
Try to change to 3g or even 2g if you aren't using data to see if solves the issue.

Just updated. Seems to he working fine, except fingerprint is broken again. Any way to reset it? Can't even enter the menu.
EDIT: Rolled back, deleted fingerprints and updated again. That did the trick.

Hello everyone, I noticed a problem with the poweramp audio player, Hi-Res Audio Output stopped working on the latest PixelOS Update, what could be the reason for this? On PixelOS (06/05/2022) working fine, clean flash doesn't help =(

Is it possible to change the default camera with a third-party one (for example open camera) so that it can also be used by other apps (for example whatsapp)?

Thank you

Hello,
First of all thanks for this amazing rom, been using it for months with no issue.

My phone runs on version PixelOS_ginkgo-11.0.20211002-0744
Clearly its an old version and it runs android 11.
My recovery is Twrp, i cant remember which version.

What are the steps i need to take to update to the latest release of yours? without losing my data.
Do i have to change recovery before everything or update it?( im sure its version is as old as the version of my rom is)
Do i have to make a clean installation or a dirty flash will work?
Thanks!

PixelOS Update! (18/06/2022)

OTA Update pushed for users on previous builds.

Changelogs:
• Switched to vulkan UI renderer

• Merged July Security Patch
• Fixed issues with a few banking apps (such as HDFC) detecting root access
• Extended Applock support to various system apps
• Added optional Daily data usage in expanded quicksettings
• Updated per-app volume drawable to match other system elements

well i copied the new twrp on my phone, installed it to my recovery in twrp, and then the fun began: adb sideload isnt working anymore, i then pushed the new Pixel OS Version onto the phone, cleared cache and dalvik and used install and now im in a constant bootloop to TWRP.

Any ideas that DONT involve clean flashing my device which will cost me at the very least several hours or rather days to fully restore all data?

When trying to start sideload i get a red error code, same as when i try to reflash twrp:

Android Rescue Party trigger! Possible Solution?
Either
1. Wipe Caches and or
2. format data and or
3. clean flash your Rom
the reported Problem is
-- reason=set policy_failed:/data/vendor

I tried installing dfe (which i used so far) because maybe my TWRP is just broken and well didnt update fully and therefore doenst support encryption (or sincei used dfe before i couldnt use this new feature in which case i would have liked a warning) butr all i can do is push it to my phone and then it instaqlls with basic features aka encryption ON. when using sideload in the past to install it promted me with a text menu where i could choose to disable encryption. any way to maybe install it via terminal?

EDIT:
no idea why, it now suddenly went past the twrp bootloop and i get the normal G with the loading bar beneath iot. Just now for 15min straight. and going. May i get my hopes up that this is normal and the phone is encrypting? Or would it say something else and its now in a different bootloop?

EDIT2
Ok stopped it. Went into fastboot and flashed the recovery with an older version of TWRP (the latest directly from the Team Win pages) then sideload worked again, i could flash dfe and i now have running system and a few more gray hairs.

In a response to my own Question.

The steps i took to come from an old version of this rom that had android 11.

1) Updated TWRP to the latest version provided on the thread.
2) Wiped cache, davlik, data, metadata, vendor ( couldnt find system to wipe for some reason)
3) Flashed latest EU firmware for ginkgo from the link provided on the thread.
4) Flashed the latest ROM version
5) Reboot aaaaaaaand bootloop hahahha
6) Rebooted again in recovery and flashed force encrypt
7) Reboot system - aaaand everything working perfectly

I hope this helps anyone that has the same question.

Rom looks good and smooth, battery optimization from the old android 11 rom to this rom is absolutely fantastic, my gingko works like its brand new.

The only thing i dont like its the camera app, feels quite laggy in daylight ( not in the sun, normal daylight) but im not a guy who takes constantly photos so its a no problem for me.

Also a bug maybe? i work all the time with mobile hotspot, so yesterday i was using it and once i went too far from the connected device in a point it disconnected from poor signal, the phone rebooted by itself, i did the same thing again to be sure and again the second time same thing happened. so basically when i want to get too far from the connected device i just turn hotspot off and then i turn it back on when i need it.

Hi, little question, I'm currently running PE+ 11, so i should already have the latest Android 11 firmware installed on my Note 8T, now i want to flash Pixel OS, it's anyway mandatory to flash the latest firmware before flashing the ROM?

If you want your wireless networks to work then yes

If you move from one custom rom to another then you have to do a clean flash

And if you do clean flash then flashing firmware is mandatory

    PixelOS 13 Beta Update! (12/09/2022)

    sure, but the order doesn't matter actually
    I'll change it in the post anyway since flashing firmware before sounds cleaner to me while it might make 0 difference.
    Regarding different firmwares for both the devices, I've mentioned it properly in the instructions that we've seperate firmware for ginkgo and willow by linking separate links to their firmwares.

    Hey I'm the guy that bricked my phone by installing the wrong firmware back in January. After months of leaving the phone in the drawer and coming back today to see if I could unbrick it, I was able to by using the steps in this forum:


    Redmi Note 8T (Willow) users: Please note that when following the guide, you need to use the willow rom files, but the guide is exactly the same other wise. Refer to these comments for further help:


    and


    I have a Redmi Note 8T (Willow), the phone is now working again with a fresh install of PixelOS. The weird thing is even with the latest version of TWRP, I almost ran into the same problem again, TWRP will refuse to install Willow firmware and keeps saying "this firmware is for willow, this is a gingko" and it's wrong, to avoid another brick I backed out, and tried using OrangeFox instead which had absolutely no issues.

    So if anyone out there has the Redmi Note 8T (Willow), use OrangeFox if the same error pops up for you :)

    Hope this helps someone somewhere.

    Nice! Congrats on Android 13 build. Should a willow NFC fix be expected in a later build?

    Best ROM ever. So smooth, fast, best battery back up, almost 7.5 hours SOT, no bugs. Thanks a lot

    You are talking about the latest build?
    Dirty flash or clean from the start?

    latest.png

    PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
    In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

    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.
    */

    Improvements over PixelExperience

    Device Specific Issues:
    • Slow charging on Chinese variants (temporary workaround is to flash a different kernel like Sixteen or Ryzen Kernel).
    • 48MP doesn't work in MIUI Camera (won't work on android 12 because of source built libcamera service).
    • NFC on willow (Android13)
    • You tell me.

    Requirements
    • Latest Global Stable Android 11 firmware for ginkgo and willow users

    Encryption FAQ

    Encryption means converting your data into an unreadable (encrypted) format which prevents it from being read without first being decrypted, increasing security as those who don't know the key (in this case password or PIN) to decrypting the data won't be able to read the data, they'll just get jumbled characters.

    On the other hand, leaving the phone decrypted or forcing decryption will allow anyone access to that data without issue.

    Most ROMs are encrypted by default. When formatting data during the flashing process, this allows the data partition to be encrypted when the phone boots.

    In short:
    1. If you prefer your data being secure and aren't planning on changing ROMs frequently, leave the builds encrypted.
    2. If you plan on flashing different ROMs on a regular basis, decryption may be an easier option though less secure.

    Can I flash magisk on encrypted builds with PixelOS recovery?
    Yes, you can sideload it

    How to flash encrypted builds?
    - Reboot to fastboot mode
    - Flash PixelOS recovery fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    - Sideload ROM using ADB
    - Go to Advanced and Format Data

    Didn't find any camera app after the first boot. Does it have any? Would be great, if it has had MiCam port.
