I can confirm that google photos unlimited storage is not working with the last update. I even tried installing the pixel 5 props and nothing 😞

Greetings friends,
Did a clean install from MIUI after flashing TWRP.
After the ROM flash and after the MIUI logo in the boot screen, I'm getting the Google logo with a bar moving underneath but nothing progresses and I don't get to the OS itself. Expected? how long does this take to load first time(10 minutes and no change. Suggestions?

You need to format data. not just wipe.

concerning your first question you can use magisk mods: 'G-visual mod' or 'Fullscreen immersive gestures'
question 3 and 4 is easily solved with a third party launcher, i'm using nova

Hello everyone! Is the data format mandatory while flashing? Last time when I switched from OOS Port to Corvus, I didn't format data and everything still worked fine.
Hello,
These ROMs don't force encryption by default I guess that's why you could switch fine.
So to answer your question, yes formatting data is needed to come to PE or to any other ROM which force encryption by default.

Hey, which music app do you guys use? Im kinda suprised there is no gallery and no music app in this. Had to download 3rd party music app from appstore which is full of ads...
Youtube music is crap (barely works with offline music files (mp3s) on local storage). Especially if you have bad internet connection cause it FORCES you to download thumbnails/videos. Turning off mobile data doesnt even help. Listing all music takes a minute or more. Switching songs takes between 3-10 seconds! Can't believe 2021 google app is this bad xd
Compared to Google Music or whatever it was named before, its un-usable.. What do you guys use?

Google photos is OK and I can live with that. It's the music issue Im horrified about.

The ROM comes with Google Photos, since it's PE. You have the flexibility to use the music app you like.
You can use Simple Gallery Pro (F-droid version if you want it free) as alternative to Google Photos and Vinyl Music Player as simple music player.

Yeah, google photos is fine. Especially with the cloud storage you get with it. But I think its weird sometimes and it sometimes wont show new photos. But yea, google problem.
The music experience was horrid to say the least, but thats not the ROM's fault either. The ROM itself is lovely and I've been using it for half a year now (or longer, time goes fast) without any issues.

I will give Vinyl music a look, thanks a lot, really appreciate it.

On the topic of this rom, thank you. This rom gave new life to my poco that was killed via OTA by Xiamoi themselves. It used to be super fast, but after a few OTA's the performance became unbelievably bad. Same thing happened to my family members phone (Even after factory reset).
Flashed this rom and it's as good as new. Won't be switching phone any time soon. So yeah, THANK YOU!

Hello,

I've been experiencing issues with the flashlight since the September update; anytime I try to use the flashlight, it says *Camera in use*. I've tried turning sensors on and off, and I've even upgraded to the October version in the hopes that it will fix it, but no success so far. Moreover, even when I open the camera, there is no flashlight icon in any of the applications (G-cam, Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp, etc.) Is anyone else having this problem?

    After checking what process caused the data hogging issue I found this to be the culprit.

    You can block both domains in the hosts file and the issue should be resolved for now.

    I too experience somohow worse battery life. I even changed my battery because I thought the old one is K.O. It got better but still not great. I am getting around 4,5 SOT. About 2% idle battery drain. Quite bad for a new battery. I am on October build but I experienced it on September build too.
    I really like how all of you complain about battery but none of you provided a graph, stats, detailed usage and a screenshot with Battery capacity health ("adb shell dumpsys battery" - while ur phone is 100% charged).
    Which new battery did u bought? Because there are lof of "fake" original batteries out there.

    No need to get sarcastic, man. My new battery is 100% original. Manufactured this September. Here is a log
    It's not personal to you. Look few posts back, you will see none from the people who complain provide any screenshot with graph, stats and battery capacity health.

    For all users who have battery issues:
    1. Charge your device 100% and then use adb shell dumpsys battery to check battery capacity health. Your current capacity seems to be 3626mah, It should be better for a very fresh original battery as you said.
    2. Do Battery Calibration.
    3. Charge your device full and use it normally then before you are about to charge it again take screenshots from battery graph and stats. You can also use Better Battery Stats to provide some additional infos.
    4. Take a look at Battery Tips on my thread.
    5. Do clean installation or "clean-dirty" of the latest build according to my guides.
    6. Etude is balanced kernel between performance and battery. Some kernels may have slightly better battery life but in cost of perfomance. As I said in previous post my battery is ~3years old, capacity health at 3059mah and I am getting ~9hours SOT with normal usage. Also in the insider team we don't find any huge issue with battery.
    7. Switch Kernel if you don't like Etude (but do not expect support if you encounter any issue) or switch ROM if you think it's not for you.
    4
    Thank you very much for your elaborate answer (y) I will definitely try some of these tips.
    I also wanted to ask if anyone managed to use Revolut with PE11+. It says Gplay says it's not compatible with this version. I tried hiding and renaming magisk but the problem persists.
    I use Revolut fine but I am not rooted. Check the safetynet fix in my collection at Magisk Root section.
    Also delete the TWRP folder from the Internal Storage.

    Why there's no face unlock and status bar customizations and also an option to hide full screen gesture bar as well and make all app fullscreen?? Request to add those in the next build, thanks and I appreciate the efforts you devs putting into this device. Thank you again have a great life ahead and god bless you.
    I recommend use the Fullscreen/Immersive Gestures Magisk module for fullscreen apps.

    STEPS TO FLASH PIXEL EXPERIENCE 11 📲

    Steps with external SDCard:
    • go to Advanced > File Manager > External_SD and delete all folders in ur ext sd card (For example you should delete: Android, .android_secure, LOST.DIR, DCIM, etc) except your personal files/folders and the folder with your custom ROM/Gapps/Magisk/DFE you want to flash.
