I hope to update the cameras in the next build a12.
Yeah i dont know about A11, i did not try Pixel experience with A11 cause i did not thought that it was worth going from miui 12 to pixel experience with android 11 even more when i need call recording and on pixel i would need to root and magisk hide and all that stuff cause of baking apps.
PE11 or 12 ?After I ran a system update - I noticed Magisk stopped allowing/giving Root.
So I downloaded the latest Pixel Exp and extracted Boot.img then put that on my phone then ran Magisk and patched it via Magisk. I then Boot into Recovery and installed the now patched file to Boot. The Ran Magsik and it installed root. Everything's now working.
Just sharing my exp...
for the records, I have solved the issue following the instructions in this page: https://www.xda-developers.com/android-11-google-photos-trash-fix/Hi, all
Just installed PE11. I love It, but I have issues with Google Photos.
It seems It Is not able to find new pictures, and It crashes when i try ti open the picture I Just taken with gcam
May it have something tondo with the ****ty "scoped storage" stuff? I can't find a way ti set Google photo as the system gallery...
new build a12 will come in next daysif 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
Thanks for the review, will try to improve in next stable updates, we just got out of betaPixel 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),
backup your data somewhere, flash pe12 from internal storage, format data, then go to fastboot and flash aosp recovery, and finally reboot the device
