This highlight of the thread

Thanks to the poster.

1. Battery Saver automatically turning on.
A: This is not a rom specific bug, it is a pie related bug.

2. How to transfer from USB/Enable MTP?
A: Enable developer settings and inside it select File Transfer/MTP as USB Configuration.

3. GApps/Google Apps FCs/Force closing issue. [Fix credit - BLUE HACK]
A: Remove SD Card on first boot after installing ROM.

4. Notifications from Play Store not showing when downloading.
A: Go to settings, search for 'Data Transfer Tool', go to storage>clear storage>yes and then reboot your phone. Downloading status from Play Store should now appear in notifications.

5. Non-Certified Play Store. [Fix credit - mitchelldemarucot]
A: For most of the users, it shows certified on Play Store, but if yours show not certified then follow these steps:
1. Clear all apps in the background (Recent apps)
2. Open Settings
3. Go to 'Apps & notifications'
4. Click 'Google Play Store' > Storage > CLEAR DATA> Ok
5. Do the same with 'Google Play services' (To see this app, click the three dot icons at the top right corner and click 'Show System') [Note: This is an optional step if just clearing 'Google Play Store' doesn't work for you]
6. Reboot your device.

6. What are the GApps installed?
A: Pico GApps.

7. How do I enable on screen navigation and pie gestures?
A: Add this line - 'qemu.hw.mainkeys=0' to the build.prop in /system (without the ') & reboot and then go to settings and enable swipe up gesture (you can search for it).

8. Sim reset issues at every boot.
A: This is a bug common on all Pie-based ROMs out there, so this is again not a ROM specific bug, but hopefully it'll be solved soon.

BONUS: If you are coming from another ROM or another android version (eg. 8.1 Oreo) or if you are coming from a sGSI image then clean flash is recommended:
1. Backup all your data
3. Wipe>System-Data-Vendor-Cache-Dalvik Cache
4. Reboot recovery
5. Flash Pixel Experience ROM (No need to flash GApps)
6. Reboot to system.

Yes, VoLTE is working perfectly.

Edit: 4th question is now fixed - Play Store notification issues - [Fix credit - THEALLSTAR]

I made a magisk module for enabling Navigation bar and disable hardware keys.
Hope this helps!

FAQs -

Q1. How do I update it/Can I dirty flash?
A1. Yes you can dirty flash this update over the previous builds of this ROM, here is the exact way to do it correctly –
1. Go to recovery (TWRP/Orange Fox).
2. Flash the latest build.
3. Go to advance and wipe cache and dalvik cache.
4. Reboot and enjoy.

Q2. What are the bugs that are still available?
A2. Bugs that I have noticed –
1. Cast does not work.
2. Operator video calling doesn't work.

Q3. Can you confirm if all the stated changes are actually working?
A3. Yes sure. Here we go –
1. Add weather on lockscreen – Working.
2. Add ambient play – Working.
3. Removed XiaomiParts – Yes it was really useless.
4. Removed HD Icon – Finally it’s gone!
5. Removed pop-up for select SIM on every reboot – Yes! No more pop-ups.
6. Fixed LED not blinking – Working.
7. Fixed download notification – Working.
8. Fixed slow FP – Yes this is a major improvement.

Q4. Any issues with Bluetooth, Wifi etc?
A4. Everything seems to be working perfectly well including hotspot. Casting does not work.

Q5. Any issues with Network/Signal Reception?
A5. Yes, I can confirm this bug - the network/signal reception is fluctuating a lot and is not stable (Tested on Jio 4G VoLTE).

Q6. What is ambient play and how do I enable it?
A6. Ambient play is a always-listening music recognition feature from the pixel 2 phone that shows you information about the music playing around you. To enable it –
1. Go to settings>display>ambient display.
2. Go to Now Playing.
3. Turn it on and adjust the settings to your likeness.

Q7. How to enable weather on lockscreen?
A7. Here's how –
1. Go to settings>Security & Location>Lock screen Preferences.
2. Change the temperature unit to your likeness - Celsius or Fahrenheit.
3. The weather should show up on lockscreen.

Q8. Do you recommend this build?
A8. Absolutely! Vitor has done a wonderful job with this build. A lot of optimisation has been done to the kernel too so it’s really smooth and there are no lags whatsoever until now. I have been using this for 2 hours now and I love it.

If something is not working for you, or there are some bugs, then you probably have done something wrong, kindly do not blame the build or Vitor, though you can still ask for a resolution to your problem with kindness.

At last, a heartful thank you to Vitor for building and maintaining the pixel experience rom for our lovely mido, you are doing a great job friend!

Edit: I think I found a new bug – Theme settings does not apply on the notification panel. It remains dark themed no matter what you select in the theme settings - Automatic/Light/Dark - it just stays dark.
