Strange... I tried installing Google Photos (from the Play Store) and seems to work fine for me. It's behaving as expected...
Screenshots below.

Any idea how we can replicate your issue?
That's strange indeed! Is your data partition encrypted? Mine is, I wonder if that's the reason why!? I glanced at logcat output and I did see an entry about encryption, I'll have to spend a few minutes to going through the logs and see if I can find the cause. Thanks for confirming ROM is not really the culprit!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience, it made me realize I'm not the only one to suffer! I'd already tried those methods and the app I tried to restore would always hang.

I wanted to manually restore the data, but I couldn't since I had the TB backup encrypted! After searching online for a tool that could decrypt TB backup, I found TiBUdecrypter which successfully decrypted it and I manually copied data over after installing the app from Play Store. I noted down the numeric owner ID of the data and cache after installing the app, deleted the data and cache, copied from backup, finally changed the numeric owner ID. That did the trick and the app is working fine!👍😄

I think it's time for me to move on to Migrate as I've had trouble restoring data every time I flash ROMs!

Glad to contribute.

Nice work around for TiTa - I'd never have thought of that.

Cheers for sharing!

You might be on to something....
I'm not encrypted.

Can anyone else that's encrypted confirm that Google Photos isn't working?

Or if decrypted, that Google Photos works fine?

I followed through the logcat output and stumbled upon a line that clearly said Google Photos depends on Google Camera! I had Google Camera app installed from Play 8, but it wasn't working. So, I downloaded and installed NGCsm along with DotFix and voila! Damned thing is working just fine now!

Therefore, encryption wasn't the culprit, rather Google Photos needs Google Camera to work! Hope it helps anyone with similar problem!

Wow, that's an excellent find...
Google and its dependencies 🤔
Thanks for the share!

Cheers
Flawless dirty flash and rock solid performance so far...kudos to the team.

One small issue that's barely significant: under Status Bar - - > Status Bar Logo, if the Xtended logo is alteady on and if toggling to switch off, one needs to restart the phone for the icon to disappear.

Kernel is great on this build and the previous one... Amazing battery life.
And the customisations are just getting better with every release.

Thank you so much Team!

Thank you for a great Android 12 Rom, I really like it and use it as my daily driver.

One humble request. Please make the Rom identify as not-rooted to apps like MitID and NemID. These two apps are mandatory to all adults in Denmark where I live since they are used to log in to all banking and public self service. I do not have root but right now the apps refuse to function because they see the phone as rooted. I know it is a very specific request but I figure other apps could benefit from it too. It worked flawlessly in Xtended XR/11 so I hope it is a relatively easy fix in XS/12.

How to reproduce:
1) Download the apps
2) Run them
3) Get an error message saying the device is insecure

Edit 1: Logcat for MitID refusing to function: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1unv1NTMorh_krD3dYvViPUVyL9EBvuDS/view?usp=sharing

    First blood was already acceptable daily driver. V2 so far solves all main issues I had before :
    Random video pause.
    Random page refresh.
    Random failure of XDA app.


    Many thanks to the developers and maintainer. Too bad for other phone vendors, I won't be replacing a phone just yet :)

    I flashed the latest version 20211211, after formatting data. It runs smoothly except for a few glitches here and there. The recent apps button seems do become unresponsive every now and then, especially after launching a full screen app and only a reboot fixes it. The other annoyance is with Google Photos, it just crashes, I haven't been able to launch the app at all. I've tried installed older versions from apkmirror and they all exhibited the same behaviour.

    Has anyone been able to find a solution or work around these annoyances? Thanks for any help.

    I also have problems with restoring apps from Titanium Backup, it simply hangs forever.
