@expressluke can we expect October build for android 13 or will you publish it straight with stable android 13 release for Pixel Experience with November patches ?
I really love this rom but im missing some device specific settings like hardware buttons lights, which are present now on LOS20.
thanks in advance for your and others who contribute and support to this project.
Yes there is a build I currently have with working button lights and hw button customisation. Will be out later today, with all the device changes made in lineage 20.

Ocotber builds are live on github.

When i did dirty flash I had systemui crash when entering pin all the time making the Phone unusable. Could be gapps related since i flash some nikgapps addons.

Factory reset (wiping data/cache/) solved the problem.
I did not face other problems yet.
So since its a beta i would recommend to clean flash it.

By the way nice new camera app. I like the design.

Thank you and all others for keeping this device alive.

Thanks for your work on this @expressluke - it's amazing to bring new life to this device!

You've possibly answered this elsewhere, but when the 13 BETA is out of beta, will you be making it official and uploading it to https://download.pixelexperience.org/?

Edit: also, when out of beta, will OTA update from 12 to 13 be possible?
About the rom becoming official
No
The requirements are kernel 4.0+
Our device has a 3.18 kernel

twrp-3.6.2_9-0-herolte.img.tar but 3.7 dont flashable. But linageOS with Android 13 works..

Extract the zip File from this post. You can flash the .img through TWRP as an Image file. Or You can use odin/heimdall and flash the .tar file to Update TWRP. I am using the lates version and everything works fine. It could also be possible that you ROM zip file is corrupted and you may need to redownload it.

Edit:
You are using the wrong file to flash you have to use herholte (Normal S7) or hero2lte (S7 edge).
For example:

PixelExperience_Plus_herolte-13.0-20221119-1641-UNOFFICIAL.zip (Normal S7)

PixelExperience_Plus_hero2lte-13.0-20221119-1335-UNOFFICIAL.zip (S7 Edge)

No they are probally the same version but for different devices. S8, S9, Note10 etc.
They are 2 different Galaxy S7 with exynos version. The regular flat, which has the code name of herolte. And the second version is for the galaxy S7 edge which is code named hero2lte. It was released 13 days ago in the second page of the github OTA site
