Just flashed this rom on my S2 and I have to say that I am quite impressed by how it looks and feels, I guess it really is a pixel experience! :)
May I just ask one (hopefully stupid) question: how do I switch apps and is it not possible to customise what my off-screen buttons do? :( I kinda understand that Pixel phones don't have off-screen buttons, but it's already quite weird that the home button doesn't even wake the device! :eek:

    I'm glad you liked it!
    I'm looking for the solution to all the builds I make and launch the final in December as they have the same problem.

    Hello there!
    How much does it take for the phone to start running? I have been waiting since 12:00 pm and right now is 16:22.
    There is the G logo in the screen but nothing else.
    Attached you can find a picture.

    Hi, I am also impressed by the performance of this build. Unfortunately I have a problem: I have enabled the navigation bar (softbuttons for 'Back', '' Home' and 'Menu'). How I can disable it?
    [Edit 2018/11/21]: I have upgraded to Pixel Experience 9.0. Problem is solved.

    1. About the applications: I configured to have as little as possible pre installed, so the size of the zip gets smaller since it comes with Gapps inserted. This is not a problem for anyone, you can download your favorites.
    2. No wakeup: Problem is described in the OP.
    3. I have not tested and never used F2FS. So feel free to test :)

    Hi @linusdan,

    Thanks for your continued support to our old device, and bringing us a wealth of various ROMs... :)

    So does this new build use Emulated Storage, in that if I did a dirty flash over the previous version of this ROM. Will I lose data / access to the previous files? Do I need to back stuff up before flashing this last build ??

    ps, we could do with a guy like you on N7000 as that's kinda slowed down now :(

    Cheers, Lister

      Frequent questions

      I do not use GAPPS! How can I remove?
      R: Unfortunately not. Sorry.

      What are the bugs?
      R: See Known issues in OP.

      How do I get root?
      R: Download SuperSU Flashable and install via TWRP. After this, update the application by the Google Play :)

      I found a bug!
      Make a logcat and put it in pastebin/hastebin. I'll look when I can :)
      You will need a computer, adb installed, usb debugging enabled on the smartphone and a usb cable.
      Here's how to do it here.

      1. Open Command Prompt (Windows) or Terminal (Linux/macOS).
      2. Type:
      Code:
      adb logcat -d > logcat-dd-mm-yyyy.txt
      This will save the log to logcat-dd-mm-yyyy.txt.

      No nonsense questions, please!
      Avoid meaningless discussions and help you and the user have useful information on the thread :good:

      Dan, when I connect the phone to the PC, I can not access the files because there is no information to authorize the procedure in the notification! Please take a look when you can.
      Calm down, Padawan! This is not a bug but google stuff. They have placed the authorization option on development tools. Everyone is trying to understand why this :eek:

      Do this when you want to have access to them:
      Go to System -> developer option -> USB and activate MTP manually.

      What will be the frequency of compilations?
      Monthly or every two months . I plan to spend $12 per month for the projects.
      Praying for the low dollar quote on the Google Cloud Engine :laugh::fingers-crossed::good:
