Some questions for those who are trying it now:

-Do the gestures work completely with side swipes too?
-Are physical buttons disabled or remain active? (With activated gestures)
-Do OTA updates work? Are they always over 1 GB?

Thanks

Awesome! So far everything is working. Only one question, is it possible to disable the second sim card without having to remove it from the device?

It would be nice to have all the Android 10 gestures, disabling the buttons ... and having the option to disable the battery charging LED and the button lights, very annoying at night

Very good performances ! Nice improvement since previous version :
- Cam working
- FP fully functional
- Encryption is now working : when launched the phone is rebooted and then shut down, but when we power on after that boot is ok and encryption done !

Some minor issues:
- keyboard layout is not at the bottom of the screen but few pixels above
- at first boot I was unable to receive the text for Google double check, had to bypass and do it later

Don't want to be the bad guy here, but your statement is not 100% correct.
In my case, when I tried that option, it has done the same as you, but after reboot it told me my /data partition was corrupted. So, I believe the statement of the ROM author is (still) correct.

Feedback to author (Jonas): This is a very nice and smooth ROM and most of the features are really working as expected.

Some suggestions:
- Is it possible to add an updated Google Cam port? It'd be nice to have some features like astrophotography, or night sight :)
- Also, is it possible to add "Exchange Services" on a next release? Some email (mostly corporate accounts) still use this. ;)

Shame it didn't work for you. At boot it asked for the swipe to decrypt. Don't know of it is related, but i dis format all partitions before installing.

Nice But Buggy

Lotttttttttttt of bugs, i use the previous update my battery was draining in 3 hours max then i switched to lineage os i got a battery life of shocking 9 damn hours same usage , then after android 10 came out yesterday , i tried it today lot of bugs . tap to wake up not working , back gesture not working , my battery just bounced from 30 to 50 after keeping for charge for just 2 min may be calibration issue, its heating , face lock missing please add it back i really loved it , the keyboard has a wierd white color bar idk why may be the gesture thing its irritating not able to type , screenshot scroll is also missing i think i should wait for the plus version hopefully it will be better changing back to lineage os for now. but awesome work dev it was an awesome experience using android 10 on my device . Keep doing the good work !!!!
