Loving it! Seems much smoother than LOS 15. Is there any way to lock screen holding fingerprint sensor instead of calling the assistant?

    Sooo to be sure. Flashing this coming from stock Oreo or Pie I have to follow the same guide as for Havoc? Where I need to flash the copy partitions zip and format data? Thanks

    Since everyone keeps asking how do you install this ROM; I decided to make a guide for the newbies that are here. :)





    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.
     */




    How to install Pixel Experience on Moto X4
    !! Please read before proceeding !!

    • Download the latest Official TWRP https://dl.twrp.me/payton/. - You want the .img file.
    • Restart your phone to your bootloader. - You do this by pressing and holding both your phone's power button and the lower volume key at the same time.
    • Once at your phone's bootloader, from your Windows Command Prompt (as administrator) or from your Linux Terminal (as root) run the following command to load TWRP:

    Code:
    fastboot boot '/your_path_here/twrp-X.X.X-X-payton.img'

    Note: Be sure to use your path on where you have the file on your computer. Be sure to replace and use the correct file name for your file (Do not just copy and paste the example posted here).

    !! You will be wiping everything because regardless if you are coming from stock or a different ROM as this ROM works best with a full wipe (as is true with any ROM) !!
    Note: If upgrading this ROM a full wipe is not necessary. See upgrade instructions below.​

    • Regardless of what ROM you are coming from (stock or not), format your DATA.
    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.
    • Regardless of what ROM you are coming from (stock or not), select "advanced wipe" to wipe your device (select all partitions).
    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.

    If coming from stock:


    Code:
     adb push copy-partitions-payton.zip /sdcard/

    • Now INSTALL "Copy Partitions Zip"
    • Reboot to your bootloader. - Stay at the bootloader screen (do not load TWRP)
    • Download the firmware for your phone

    firmware-29.69-26_payton-fi_xt1900-1.zip




    • Unzip on your computer.
    • User flash_all.bat if on windows as administrator OR ./flash_all.sh if on Linux as root.
    • Reboot your phone to bootloader


    Continue:

    • Reboot your device to bootloader and reuse the previous fastboot command to load TWRP listed above.
    • Download and locate the latest ROM located here: https://download.pixelexperience.org/payton/
    • You will upload these files to your phone using the "ADB PUSH" command to your /sdcard/ directory (as admin in windows or root in Linux). For example:

    Code:
    adb push PixelExperience_payton-9.0-20181208-2312-OFFICIAL.zip /sdcard/

    • In TWRP select Install
    • Locate your .ZIP file and proceed with the install


    NOTE: Do NOT install Gapps as Gapps is already installed with this ROM.​

    • After a successful install, REBOOT your phone.

    Congratulations, you're done! :cool:

    Magisk



    Magisk will provide you with root access (optional). You can obtain a copy of Magisk here https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk You will want your ROM to boot at least once before installing Magisk.

    However, if you end up in a boot loop as a result of installing this ROM, and you previously were using Magisk in the previous ROM before installing this ROM, simply load TWRP and flash Magisk and that should correct the boot loop.



    UPGRADING - How to upgrade this ROM.


    Also known as a dirty upgrade, you do not need to wipe everything and start over. However, if this dirty upgrade fails a fresh install is recommended.

    • Download the latest ROM
    • Reboot into recovery
    • Install your new .zip file
    • Wipe cache/dalvik
    • Reboot
    If all has gone well you're done! If not, a full wipe and install are recommended.





    Beyond Gapps


    Additionally, if you're one of those paranoid people who want to keep your distance away from Google Play you do have the following alternatives.
    1. https://apkpure.com/
    2. https://en.uptodown.com/android
    3. https://f-droid.org
    Just remember that these are unofficial sources and you take the risk that can potentially come with them.

    hello guys, new update. It was not seen for these dates but it was necessary.

    https://download.pixelexperience.or...rience_payton-9.0-20190317-1446-OFFICIAL.zip/

    Note 1: Auto face Unlock can be activated and configured in Smart Lock.
    Note 2: The Google Camera has a "purple filter" with the front camera, this is disabled in Settings> Advanced> Black level> Fix greent tint. Deactivate that.
    Note 3: If you have problems with banking applications and use Magisk, please use the Magisk Hide module. (temporary fix).

    Enjoy!
