Testing PE 12 Beta. I should acknowledge that it works quite good. Not much bugs were discovered, this is the second day I use it. Sound, Mic, Rotation, GPS. Most apps work without problem(didn't tested games). LED, Camera, fast change, Mobile Data, Calls work. Didn't test VoLTE, because it is not by my carrier. System itself works flawless by now. Gonna test it further.
One thing that bugs me is that there is no Android Update section. Is it because ROM is in Beta stage?

i also have installed the PE 12 beta, but there is problem, after I flash it I can't get access to any recovery, no TWRP, orangefox, it freezes on the TWRP screen / Orangefox screen and nothing happening.
Try flashing multiply times twrp and nothing.
I think I am screwed as if the rom break somehow I am not able to restore or do anything.

You still can flash Stock using MiFlash, or XiaoMiTool V2. It should fix the problem.

Well,
This behavior is predicted, although he is Polaris dev, the kernel used in our ROM is from polaris.

Ok thanks for anwser

"Keymaster is bumped to 4.0 for encryption, and cust partition is mounted as /metadata. You WILL NOT be able to boot TWRP/OrangeFox on PE12. "

So basicly i screw it myself as i read recomended PE recovey but ignored it and use twrp as its love :)

Now i will try flash PE recovey and see if it works and no freeze, and if work use it to updated future android 12 Pixel builds and then hopefilly new twrp will be release and will be fine

am i uderstend it correct or the PE recovey also will freeze and I am out of luck?

EDIT: So Yeah, i flash the PE Recovery provided in beta 12 build and seems to boot to it very fast and no freezes inside so, to everyone that want to test PE 12 Beta just install it via PE Recovery, don't be like me

No, its just recovery designed to flash Pixel experiance software hassle free
TWRP is way better have lots of options and besicly its way to go with recovery

But for now, if u want test beta android 12 you need to use it, or you can just wait for new twrp that will be designed to support it, but dont know how long its gonna także.

What about Bluetooth ? Is it working correctly ?

assuming the hdr bug is still here, it is possible to reapply the color profile without rebooting like in lineage os?
battery life is decent?

Does someone here tried A12 beta with Magisk installed ? Does it work with V23.0 or did you install the canary update that brings A12 support up but removes MagiskHide ?

    if I not mistakenly remember, yes it can flashed on top of normal version, I tried in A10 PE at the time. maybe ask @GiaSen whether is flashed on top or not. oh and one more question for giasen, in download page stated dipper has december build for now, but donwload link is still from november??

    edit : the build date is its for A11, not for A12 hehe
    new build a12 will come in next days :)

    With Respect 🙌
    What is the 12 plus Version release date ?
    And Is there face unlock in this version?

    Rule 1, never ask for ETA, ever.

    Not in vanilla, yes in plus. Someone literally said this a few comments up (6 comments above yours.)

    0 respect if you ask me :cowboy:

    Thank you very much @GiaSen

    Pixel Experience 12 Review
    ======================

    After 2 days of usage, I can say this ROM is very stable. almost everything works (not everything)
    battery life is a bit better than my previous from (EvoX 11)

    however, there's a thing missing/annoys me is

    first, let's go from the visual side :

    (-)The network status icon is overlapping, this is annoyed me a bit
    View attachment 5492925

    (-) Then notch hide/cutout hiding feature from the developer menu is not working properly in this version, activating it will make your display weird

    From the accessibility side :
    (+)tap to wake is available
    (-)double tap 2 open camera is working, but it will deactivate/locking screen first then open the camera on the second tap
    (-)no 3 finger swipe to screenshot, only volume down+pwr button to screenshot (maybe will be implemented on plus version?)
    (-) No IR face unlock yet (maybe in plus version?)
    (-) can't find a built-in screen recorder (must-have for me, because sick of crappy play store recorder that has bad quality and gives watermark)

    From the hardware side :
    (-) not all cameras detected (telephoto lens and IR front camera not detected by any software)
    (/) NFC is working but limited to checking the balance on my card, top-up a card, or anything to write a secure NFC card will not work. (but not a problem for me, since I rarely use that feature)

    Last is my request/suggestion :
    (*)The ambient display (AoD) is nice to have when the phone was charging. can you make feature to make it enable AOD when charging only?
    (*)phone lock fade animation is cool, but the animation start/end from/to the volume up button, not from power button like the pixel, can it be changed?

    Overall the whole phone experience is better than the previous version, thanks to google, PE dev, and of course @GiaSen for maintaining this for our device!! Very Appreciated man!!

    What I didn't try
    Magisk/Rooting things, Playing games (didn't play games on phone),
    Thanks for the review, will try to improve in next stable updates, we just got out of beta

    Haló kindly friend.. I'm on PE 11 with twrp and encrypted and planned to install PE 12. What step do you suggests since it's required aosp recovery?
    backup your data somewhere, flash pe12 from internal storage, format data, then go to fastboot and flash aosp recovery, and finally reboot the device

    April update up
    Changelog
    **Device Specific Changes:**
    - Etude kernel: Op.11 No.4
    * Linux 4.9.267
    * some upstream fixes of cpufreq_stats
    * fixed an issue where the frequency of big CPU cores is locked to a maximum of 1286MHz; the frequency of the big cluster is supposed to be restricted under 1286MHz if you battery is at or below 10%, as part of Qualcomm's thermal mitigation, but on previous versions, the frequency restriction was not removed after the phone is charged above 10%
    * default to suspend to RAM instead of s2idle (suspend to idle) for around a 25% reduction of idle battery drain
    * DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
    - Adjusted thermal configs to delay CPU frequency drop and smoothen the thermal throttling curve
    - Implemented dynamic thermal profile to work with Pixel thermal engine
    * the option is accessible under Settings/Battery/Optimization profiles (in case you are wondering, they had no effect on PE11 before this change)
    * thermal configs are dynamically loaded on a per-app basis
    * only the gaming profile is available besides the default profile, because other use cases are covered well enough by the default profile
    * the gaming profile maintains CPU frequency at even higher temperature compared the default profile
    * surface temperatures are measured by an infrared thermometer with matching emissivity to ensure they stay below the allowed maximum values of continuously held electronic devices in IEC 60950-1 (2005) standard
    * thermal profile is NOT a replacement for proper cooling. If you want better performance, you should cool your device. - Eliminated all SELinux neverallows and cleaned up unneeded or broken sepolicy
    * the latest Riru installation should work now. Note that if you use any mods like this, you will not receive support from me
    - Updated telephony blobs from pyxis 21.3.31 to fix random qtibus crashes in the background
    - Went back to Secure Element 1.0 to work with the updated blobs
    - Stopped enforcing s2idle from userspace init script so the kernel can suspend to RAM for better idle battery drain
    - Cleaned some unused config overlays
    **ROM update highlights:**
    - April security update
    - Fixed the issue of weather information not showing up in "At a glance" on the home screen of Pixel Launcher
    - Improved Face Unlock. The issue of front camera being occupied should happen less frequently. Let me know if you still encounter it - Devices will only use dark boot animation from now on
    - Translation updates
