Just flashed last update. Installed a non MGC gcam to fix the issue and Ryzen Kernel to fix fast charge. Everything working smooth getting around 2 hs SOT with 70% battery remaining from full charge
Non MGC gcam mean...
Which gcam comes pre-installed?
Have u tried havoc os? Is it better than that

Just curious: Size of PE+ ROM for ginkgo/willow is 1.37 GB from Build 20210315, but it is 1.88 GB from Build 20210417.

Is there any reason behind the significant increase in ROM size?

Who knows, the GPL'd sources are not published so no one knows what he put in there.

All I know is that it should be 1.43-.1,46GB depending on what is included.

So that linked kernel source is NOT the one used to build the kernel that is shipped with the current version of this ROM.

Mine works fine, I can't tell what he's done since the kernel sources are not published at all (GPL violation but do mods care, only sometimes).

MiCam works perfectly for this ROM and all sources are available at https://github.com/Jennova-technologies including the "required" GPL sources that apparently are only required for some.

Man, are you okay? This PE uses QuickSilver kernel, which is definitely have a link on a Github and even forked by user you specified in your message.

    The stock camera included in this PE (Android 11) rom does not open on my Redmi Note 8.

    Needed to flash the attached Gcam Uninstall zip via TWRP to remove the stock camera i.e. which is system app and thus cannot be uninstalled normally.

    Found the attached GCam 8.1 apk to install on my Note 8. This GCam 8.1 works perfectly.

    Just like on any custom rom at least for willow, mic does not work 95% of the time for viber calls. But that is OK to call ROM official, I really miss honest developers from 2008 2015 ERA.

    Therefore, ROM is excellent of course, the best, but totaly unusable in this state.
    Try to share the logcat. It will be more useful. Official doesn't mean it is bugs free, not every maintainer has both ginkgo and willow (or the Chinese ginkgo which seems having slow charging trouble in some kernels).

    Apparently the fast charge problem only affects china gingko, not global version. Mine is a chinese version
    you can use ryzen kernel for now. ill look into kernel source during weekend

    Will the update be this big size or just a fix of 100 200 MB
    Because i am not on pixel experience now,i want to try it so should i download it now and wait for the fix OTA or not
    Wait up a few days for the fixed update, I am so busy for now and will get time in weekends.

    Hello and first of all thanks for your effort in providing this ROM to us.
    I installed it and everything works flawlessy, fast clean and nice.
    I only have a problem that maybe is something that has to do with the interaction between how the rom handles phone encryption an TWRP, so I'm just posting to let you know this but I'm not blaming the ROM for this little problem.

    Since I installed the ROM TWRP is not able to properly handle encrypted /data so when you enter in recovery it does not prompt for PIN o password input to decrypt the block device and all you can see on the /data partition in TWRP is directories and files encrypted with no way to open them.
    This is what i did:

    1. Went to TWRP (3.0.10)
    2. Flashed Firmware
    3. Reboot to recovery
    4. Wiped system and vendor
    5. Reboot to recovery
    6. Format data
    7. Reboot to recovery
    8. Copied Rom zip in internal storage (/data)
    9. Installed ROM from /data
    10. Rebooted in System
    11. Completed setup
    Since after the setup procedure is completed TWRP was not able to detect that /data is now encrypted, not prompting me to insert PIN or Password.

    I started all over upgrading TWRP to the latest version available for Ginkgo (3.5.2_9.0) but still no luck.
    If I try to decrypt manually in TWRP terminal I get:



    Maybe I've not the right grasp on how does Android 11 works with encryption but am I the only one with this problem?
    If I can provide more useful info please let me know, if it is related to TWRP maybe I should contact the mantainer of TWRP but I wanted to first check with the mantainer of this ROM since I've not encoutnered this behaviour with previos ROMs based on Android 10.
    All u have to do is
    1. Boot to TWRP
    2. Flash latest FW
    3. Wipe cache/dalvik, cache, data, system, vendor
    3. Format data
    4. Flash the ROM then wipe cache/dalvik
    5. Reboot to system

    And for ur problem flash vbmeta.img via fastboot and reinstall TWRP (u can download vbmeta.img from this video description
    ) there is also a cmd command u can use to install the vbmeta.img

    I installed this fantastic rom a week ago. The first day the phone suddenly restarted 2 times, but in the rest of the week I have not had any more problems. It is a super stable and light rom. The included camera works, but I have installed the Gcam 8.1 and it looks great. Without a doubt, an installation that has completely changed my experience with the phone. Thank you very much to all of you who make this possible.

    PD: Installed in a Redmi Note 8 (4/64) global with Snapdragon (Global).

    Weird, I was told I had to do at least two months of unoffical stable releases after producing five months of code that worked perfectly for every version and here you are without a proper working camera and you still got official?


    No wonder this ROM only gets maintained a month at a time.
    Camera works very fine for everyone, it's a issue from his side and don't worry I don't plan on dropping maintainership this early

    Awesome ROM. In combination with BSG's 8.1 GCAM is the best pixel 5 mod you can find.

    I only had a problem with fast charge on a Chinese gingko, solved it by flashing ryzen kernel:
