Installed this with ease. Runs a hell lot smoother and snappier than the stock firmware. You think that the option to use the ultra wide cam sensor would be possible in future builds? Always wondered as its only been just the main and the front options for when i use the camera even in 3rd party apps.
Some gcam ports support the wide cam if I remember correctly, but yeah this is on the potential feature list

I've never had that happen, there's a chance that the sensor could be faulty.. try re-adding the finger or switch to other unlock method. Realistically this shouldn't be a rom problem since it only talks with the sensor, so if the scanner returns success then the phone unlocks.

It also might be unlocking with face unlock, without you noticing, or something like smart lock.

The problem is the ROM. I returned the official ROM, everything is fine

When are we getting the June security patch update? Any expected date?
(Btw the rom is amazing I haven't faced any issues yet... Loved it <3 )

Sounds like either an issue with your phone or the way you install stuff. What's the model? (SM-A705XX)
Dude, I've been using the rom for a long time. There are 2 problems with the rom. First, the live wallpapers create lag in the rom. the second is about adaptive brightness. Sometimes the screen dims too much even though it hits too much light.

That message you're replying to seems to be completely unrelated. If the dim you're talking about happens mainly during unlocking of the phone, that bug has been corrected and will be released with the next update.
Yes, especially when unlocking the phone. However, when the adaptive brightness is on, it sometimes dims the brightness unnecessarily when the light is hitting.

    I'll have a look before releasing the next build, thanks for mentioning this
    Will they update to Android 14?
    You'll certainly hear in time when the developer is ready and was able to devote his time for something you're able to receive for free. The developer doesn't owe you anything and you aren't his custtomer. Just be patient!

    New build is out, fixing the Camera app bug which would produce pictures that are way too big in size.
    Thanks for your work rtd you are a god of optimizing codes .

    In this rom i notices about 4 bugs on the last version

    Auto brightness - brightness bar
    2 diff scenario
    1- auto brightness its kinda glitchy when i activate it on the on it start to increase about 4% and decrease in every 10 sec in a min at the same position but its not always like that

    2nd one brightness bar sometimes when i change it . It doesnt responds it in full brightness by default even if i make it 0%

    When screen is off and mobile data off and wifi

    Every 1 hour it decrease 1% or 2 of battery without doing anything while sleeping

    On stock wasnt change that much every 2 or 3 hours about 1 %

    google assistance are not working on lock screen i dont know why but i tried every option even when its on for entering pass or fingerprint
    ; Should unlock the pass in order to listen to me


    The gdialer app are not saving the recorded calls in records files but the app itself says it has a record data and i can delete them all
    I search for data/ google.dialer the file it keeps loading without opening

    Suggestion please for more options im not asking alot but i know you can do it bro 🫡

    1- would you please put an Themes option for quick settings

    2- changing lock screen widget its always default i guess.

    .thank for you work again 😊

    3- always on display 1 tap to show for 10 second like stock - coz i have to press the finger print to wake it up or unlock the phone with the button

    4- double tap on empty wallpaper to lock the device
    Maybe you have some glitches in your adaptive brightness curve, reset can help:

    **Reset adaptive brightness.** Go to **Settings > Apps > See all apps > Device Health Services > Storage & cache > Manage space > Reset adaptive brightness**.

    (For me, de default brightness settings works quite nice ☺️) Since the last update I do not use the app Velis Auto Brightness anymore, but you can see with this app if you have a glitchy or smooth brightness curve.

    For suggestion 4: Display -> tap to sleep? (Double tap in statusbar)
    For suggestion 4: Display -> tap to sleep? (Double tap in statusbar)
    Thank you bro.

    Ik there is in status bar but when it comes to use one hand double tap on empty space like the stock does make it much easier . That is the point . Ik mean we are all using custom rom to make it easier to use . And thanks for rtd hard work on each rom he made alot of progress ❤️

    Pixel Experience 13 Plus for Galaxy A70

    * 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.
    What is this?
    PixelExperience is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animation)

    Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

    Based on Android 13
    What is working:
    - WiFi
    - DualSIM, including calls on both sims
    - Bluetooth
    - NFC
    - Camera
    - Sound
    - GPS
    - Fingerprint scanner/Face unlock
    - Sensors
    - SD cards
    - Double tap to wake
    - Data encryption
    - SELinux enforcing
    - SafetyNet
    - Sound in calls (since that requires clarifying now..)
    - Most other basic stuff

    Known issues:
    - VoLTE/VoWiFi, of course :)

    Installation guide:

    1. Recommended Samsung firmware version is A705FNXXU5DVK6, but it will work on slightly older versions too.​

    Make sure that the bootloader is unlocked.​


    2. Boot the phone into download mode. Flash Pixel Experience recovery through AP button in Odin.​

    Download here.

    Note: TWRP will not work! It does not support new A13 roms with the latest changes.
    Use PE recovery for the best experience, otherwise don't complain if your phone bootloops.

    3. Boot into recovery (Vol+ and Power while USB is plugged into PC)​

    Note: Samsung's OneUI wipes the custom recovery partition and possibly vbmeta while booting so try not to reboot into Android.

    4. Format data and system in the recovery​


    5. Flash the rom in "Apply update" menu.​

    There are 2 ways to install:
    • On the phone: Copy the zip to a FAT32-formatted microSD card and install it in recovery.
    • With a PC: Use Minimal ADB on Windows. Open "cmd-here" and type
      adb sideload <rom-file>
      where <rom-file> is the filename (drag-and-drop the zip file into cmd window).

    6. (Optional) If you want superuser access, flash Magisk in the same way that you flashed the rom.​

    We now have a working ramdisk so newest Magisk works fine ^^

    7. Reboot and enjoy :)


    (Update recovery and clean flash if coming from 2023.01.04!)

    ROM: 2023.09.22

    Recovery: 2023.06.18

    Other info:
    OS version: Android 13
    Linux version: 4.14.190
    Recommended firmware: A705FNXXU5DVK6
    Build date: 22/09/2023
    Status update: the new update is ready, with long awaited FOD dimming, night light FOD, corrected vibration intensity, bluetooth voip calls support, and some rom-side fixes too like Safetynet/Play Integrity + fixed first time setup crash. Unfortunately, my ISP is currently having some trouble and upload speeds are horribly low, so I can't actually upload the build! :ROFLMAO:

    I'll update the trees on git soon in case someone would want to build from source, otherwise just be patient.

    @eniothecheesy reflash vbmeta and PE recovery, then try again.
    New build with August security patch is now available, changes can be found below:
    I don't have any time to work on the phone lately but I'll at least push a small update fixing safetynet sometime soon.
    May update is out:
