OG Pixel spoofing for Google Photos? Also does it have the large 2X2 grid option of the pixel launcher?

NM. Installation went off without a hitch and yes to both concerns. Appreciate the great fingerprint and face unlocks too. This phone is super fast now. Just became my favorite Android. Great job.

cDroid is ment to be not only an AOSP base ROM but more pixel based with similar GAPPS. I think it fits this ROM very well.
Sure, you could argue that, but then again, GrapheneOS is mainly made for Pixels.
One can buy a Pixel for any number of its features (camera, display, size, aesthetics, whatever) but they might not want to use any Google Apps.
Some maintainers push two builds; one with, and one without GAPPS. But I guess as long as they are not official/verified maintainers, they aren't required to do anything. They might as well just be building a ROM for personal use, but decide to also share it, should others want to have the same experience as the dev.

Graphene is a complete different ROM, in my eyes its pretty simple and de-googled... And to answer your og spoof for gphotos, yes it does work and yes, you can use the storage saver and turn it off in misc ;)

Awesome rom! Id like to limit charging to 80% with acc and acca but I cant get magisk to flash - it says "Couldn't access state file..." when flashing in recovery.

I am aware that it is completely different, I was just bringing it up to illustrate my point.

My apologies! It does indeed work. I bought this 6a just a few months ago, before that, I was using a 4a. Several ROMs had this "OG Pixel spoof" feature, but none of them actually worked. I read about it for a bit, and I found multiple sources saying Google fixed this spoof.
Good to know that it works now/on this device/ROM, thank you for correcting me!

I fastboot flashed magisk_patched-boot.img, then magisk installed acc and safetynetfix(just out of habit) and everything is working great so far. Passes basic attestation according to YASNAC, charge is limited to 79, network/GPS location is good(tested with MyLocation app), fast charging, 5G...

Battery drain is good but Android System Intelligence was using more battery than any other app, so I background restricted it.
Great rom!

Edit: Restricting Android System Intelligence causes google maps to not give directions - Google nonsense...

Hello everyone, I am uploading a test build. This build is based on December. This will need to be a complete clean install. I have decided to release vanilla builds. For those who would like to keep Gapps, you can adb sideload Mindthegapps. I will be updating the OP with official install instructions soon. Thanks.
Will the "regular" build also need to be clean flashed & not include GApps?

    Any way to hide the navbar?

    There's an option for it within the gestures settings. If you use Google Camera, hiding the navbar this way will cause a 2-3 second delay when switching between modes. To get rid of the delay, use this Magisk module instead.
    You'll have to install it using Fox's MMM.

    In fastboot mode, fastboot update "rom.zip"

    Bluetooth now doesn't work at all, even with stock boot.img. Also, i'm getting random system crashes like once a day. Seems to occur when I try to turn off wifi or the flash light. Can't root either. Tried rooting via recovery, get an error. Tried magisk patched boot.img from the rom zip and that caused issues

    What are doing to your device? This is all OE and non existent. Quit modding and rooting the ROM. Once you do that all my support goes out the window.

    Hey thanks for sharing. Xda isn't what it once was, but it's still nice to see roms and kernels for bluejay popping up here.

    Hello everyone! Updating the build again tonight. This build will address the adaptive connectivity FC when making calls on some carriers and fixes monet. I have also started compiling user builds. I would suggest a clean flash in any situation. Thank you.

    Sorry about a double post but noticed an issue today using the rom

    Wireless hotspot is greyed out. I can't enable it. On my old phone I could enable it. My previous phone, up until last week was a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G on stock oxygen os. Wireless hot spot worked on that phone, but doesn't on the pixel 6a. Could it be rom related?

    edit: idiot moment, data saver was turned on
