Using this Rom now, everything works fine except the battery life... I have to charge my phone 3 times per day, maybe it's battery's problem? I wonder if I have any ways to improve it?:confused:

The official changelog is here. It makes no mention of the display cutout but I can see that some commits have been made regarding it since last build. Could anyone with today's build tell if the screen around the notch is now nice like in miui?

There's no change to the shape of the notch, I like the notch this shape though. I think the pixelation where its rounded is fixed.

Fingerprint is noticeably better too.

Flashed the latest release on top of China Dev 9.9.3 with wipes. Everyfing works just fine, exept sound from media speaker.
Minimum firmware is not "minimum"? Is it the only one working?

Hello, everybody,
since I almost had a heart attack at the last attempt, I will inform myself better this time, before...

I'd like to have a quick look at this new version, at the moment I'm on the last "Weekly" of miui.eu.

With TWRP I have already made a backup on an external medium.

What would be the best way to install the latest PE version, but so that I can always go back to my TWRP backup ?

1000 Thanks for your input !

How about try with okitavera kernel?
Solves the problem.

Fingerprint works if AOD is enabled. Takes about 0.7-0.9 second to unlock. If AOD is disabled - FOD doesn't work either.

I went back to miui because I didn't know that AOD had to be enable. I had a really bad time because of the fingerprint issue.

I may go back to give it another try in a few days.

Thanks mate

    All right, I'll probably get a bad image with some people because of that decision but I have no choice.

    Unfortunately and sadly I'm having to stop the development for Mi 9 SE from my end. Please don't start pointing the finger at me and saying s*** like "Oh you're a ****ing scammer, you didn't give long enough support for the device" and stuff like that. I'm not having time to give attention for both devices, the enough proof is the time that took me to do the lastest release for Grus.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd really like to do give longer support for the device. Even already did something regarding an Android 10 bringup on the device trees (it bootlooped of course :p) and implemented FOD stuff in the test source of PixelExperience 10, but as I'm getting a new job now (for receiving a salary), plus the collage, I had to took a decision, plus everything that I promised, which was bringing up the device source and releasing PE officially for it, I did, I kept my promises. So yeah, this it.

    If anyone feels in the right to, just contact me and I'll find a way to return the money of the crowdfunding donation as soon as possible.

    All my source, even the test/WIP/unfinished ones are public at my github and PE-Devices org if anyone interested to look and built PE by yourself.

    Thanks for all the support given. Hope to see you guys by, maybe on the Mi 8, maybe on another device.
    The update it's already released for a few devices, maybe the developer it's fixing some specific grus bugs but it should be released soon.

    Well, I wasn't working on Grus to be honest, but I was indeed working on Q stuff, as the Mi 8 bringup is easier because no prebuilt vendor. I'll may release the september builds this week for both Mi 8 and Mi 9 SE
    Will anybody post proper procedure for flashing both pie and pie plus PE rom for now

    Pixel Experience 9.0 (r46)

    Inital release: 26.08.2019

    Whats working?
    Wifi, RIL, Mobile data, GPS, Camera, Flashlight, Camcorder, Bluetooth, Fingerprint. NFC, Lights. Sound/Vibration, Facelock

    Flashing instructions:
    1. Disable PIN/Password & do Backup
    2. Wipe system, vendor, data, cache, dalvik cache
    3. Flash Vendor ( fw-vendor_grus_9.7.4.zip ), then ROM via TWRP 3.3.1-7a ( twrp-3.3.1-7a-Mi9SE.img ) or newer
    4. Reboot to System

    Don't flash Gapps. It's included.

    I copied this from telegram and included the correct vendor and twrp download links.
    For me this worked perfect with Pixel Experience Pie Rom. After that I dirtyflashed Pixel Experience Pie Plus Rom. Everything is fine.

    Can you smooth the notch's curve like it is on the stock MIUI? @Hlcpereira

    I'm already using MIUI stock values for notch and yet it's stills like that.

    Really nice rom but I would like to suggest some things :
    - Camera app is bad, we are missing a lot of features
    - Screen corners and notch aren't smooths
    - The font for notifications is Product Sans but I find this a little bit unreadable
    - Screen color profiles (natural, saturated... seems not work)

    Nice job btw !

    - Camera app: I'll included GCam in the next update
    - Screen corners and notch: Check my answer to Luigi
    - Font: That's just on Plus Edition, anyway, that's Q behaviour on Pixels Stock ROM, so whether now on Plus Edition or on Q it'll stay like that
    - Screen Color Profile: Guess I'll switch to LiveDisplay color profiles back then, because people still telling me that they aren't working (whether on Mi 8 or on Mi 9 SE).
