I'm finding the last release had far better battery life. Any others experience the same?

Thanks for your awesome work! Enjoying this Google Pixel flavor. Did a fresh and clean a new installation of this wonderful ROM. Magisk and everything working.

Just a couple of things i noticed. To help people decide if they want to use it as a daily driver yet.
-no AR stickers option in the camera, probably because its the BSG mod... its a shame though. The stock camera doesnt work, and Fc's
-while recording video, the autofocus is weird. 1 tap focusses to near, and another tap focusses to far. so its either supercloseup, or to far
away... autofocus doesnt work properly
- Can't record 4k, option is not there.

Please dont think im complaining, im just mentioning some things i found, so people know if they should use it for a daily driver.
Im sure using it for that! Its really nice and clean and fast!

Thanks again, will donate soon for your great work!

AR stickers works on mine but yeah no 4k. Maybe you need to update ARCore.

guys, do i need to download the complete zip after every new build to update? sorry to ask the question, but i‘m a newbie....

Yes.

I have a chinese variant MI 8 with unlocked bootloader and global ROM (10.0.0.2) on it. Is it really needed to flash dipper_global_images_8.9.20 before flashing this in TWRP as I am still in 8.1?

I am planning to do this and correct me if I am wrong:

1. adb reboot bootloader

2. fastboot boot recovery-TWRP-3.2.3-0918-XIAOMI8-CN-wzsx150.img

3. In TWRP,
a. Flash TWRP-3.2.3-0918-XIAOMI8-CN-wzsx150.zip (to make it permanent)
b. Format /data partition
c. Reboot to Recovery
d. Copy GooglePixel2ROM_dipper-v3.1sep-20181001-1944.zip to /sdcard
e. Flash GooglePixel2ROM_dipper-v3.1sep-20181001-1944.zip
f. Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
g. Reboot to System

Since Magisk and dm-verity is already in the zip, I am not flashing these two zips.

Thanks again for the wonderful PixelROM experience!

1. No
2. Because MIUI kernel is a total mess and Sphinx (all Lineage kernels) support Double-Tap to Wake
3. If you mean 5.3 based, then no, it works only on MIUI (doesnt work on LOS too)

I want this ROM so much, but the fingerprint scanner is still bothering me, because it acts like a button that clicks the screen. What is the real way to flash it to get the ROM work? Can somebody tell me the full process, and which ROMs to use?

If anyone wants to remove the clock on the left, so there is more space for notifications then you can install THIS.

You need to have substratum installed and have root. I've tried using SystemUI but the clock always comes back, but with this mod it's gone all the time so there is more space for icon notifications.
