Great ROM. Probably one of the best ones I've used so far. Everything works great. Only issue I'm having is I can change my home screen wallpaper but not my lock screen wallpaper. Any help would be appreciated. Keep up the good work 👍
Your kind words are appreciated. Can you give more detail about the wallpaper thing? I'm not having any issues on my end.

i like to use 2 separate wallpapers on my phone. I can choose a picture for my home screen and it'll save, but when i choose a picture as my lock screen wallpaper it doesn't save. Whatever picture i use as my home screen wallpaper it applies to my lock screen as well. Im just trying to get them to apply separately. Im going to try a fresh install to see if the bugs clear up.

Ah, ok, I have the same issue. Let me know if a clean flash fixes, I dirty flash a lot.
I'll pull a log later and see if anything stands out

Clean flash didnt fix anything. Also ringtones i have saved to my device are all showing as 0.0mb therefore i cant use any of them as a contact ringtone. Cant set ringtones that are saved to storage and cant set wallpapers to lock screen. Do you think it could may be a storage issue? I can probably pull a log here shortly to see if theres any issues.

Edit: Reboot fixed the ringtone issue but wallpaper issue still persists.

Feel The Sting!

Since we have no working TWRP for the Pixel 3XL, we have to flash with our own custom recovery. In the download section below, you will find a boot image and the ROM zip. You need to download both and follow the install instructions.


Downloads:
Crosshatch
Blueline


Installation:
For First Time Install, you must clean flash! Check the upload date, this will let you know which factory image you need to be on before flashing your device.

1) Plug the device into a PC and open a terminal
2) adb reboot bootloader
3) fastboot flash boot boot.img --slot all
4) fastboot reboot-bootloader
5) Using the device volume buttons, select Recovery Mode
6) Use the custom recovery to Factory reset the device
7) When it's done, select Apply update followed by Apply from ADB
(This will allow you to sideload the ROM zip)
8) adb sideload the_rom.zip
Code:
# Example (using a Wildcard shortcut)
adb sideload S*.zip
9) Reboot system and Enjoy

A couple of questions:

1. How stable is this ROM? How likely is it that I encounter showstopper bugs?
2. Is it possible to update this ROM without flashing again? Like built-in update functionality.
3. Is it gonna be maintained for some time?

1) I been using as DD since October. I don't know what "show stopping" bug you may find, all users are different.
2) Not at this time
3) This is our 4th cycle, unless something drastic happens to my crosshatch, I will maintain

That's a TWRP issue, is not related to the ROM, I can't help with that

Hey, so I'm new to 11. I can't seem to find the "tweaks". I'm not sure if it's the same with this version but I thought there was a tweaks app included with 9 under settings, if I'm not mistaking. It's been a while so I could be totally wrong.

there is not a custom settings section, all custom features are spread around in general system settings, look around and you'll find them

I'm feeling a bit slow, right now.
I can't seem to find any of the custom settings anywhere. I'm looking for the option to activate torch with the power button, as well as the advance power menu.

I can't even find anything stating that I'm using Scorpion rom. Shouldn't it display "Scorpion Rom" or something of that nature, under device name or model or something?

I'm wondering if I had done something wrong with the install.

yeah, as far as customization go... this is just a bit better than Lineage. scorpion n doesnt have a control center for its small amount of mods, theyre scattered throughout the settings. if you want customizations, look elsewhere.

Right. I'm not looking to completely customize my device. I'm simply looking for any of the features shown available for this rom. I can't seem to find any anywhere, which leads me to believe maybe I've done something wrong with the install, though I'm not sure how that's possible.

then probably the installation failed and you booted from the other slot where stock was.

did the installation process ended with the message status 0?

retry following all steps from the beginning

Dang A/B devices. Yeah, that's probably what happened.

I thought the message status was 0 but I could be mistaking. I'll give it another shot.

I'm on the latest image, if that makes a difference "RQ1A.201205.003.A1".

You should see our logo in the "About phone" section. As far as the torch goes, you'll find that under "Settings/System/Gestures". Either use the power button or Active Edge, or both, lol

In a previous post you mentioned that we had a "tweaks" app in Android 9, we did, however starting with 10 I dropped that and started putting the tweaks under the proper Settings category where they belong, I think it makes for a cleaner experience.

Hope you get it going

    ROM Update! (y)


    This update to v4.4 adds some new features and kernel improvements, see change log(s) below.

    If you're already running Scorpion, just follow the directions under "Updating".
    Please, do a clean install if you run into any problems, sometimes "Dirty flashing" causes jank...

    The OP will be updated following this post.

    Downloads:
    *Note(s): Check the upload and build dates for the proper downloads
    crosshatch
    blueline


    (These instructions are from Linux, which is what I use. You may need to make adjustments to the commands if using Windows)

    First Time Installation:
    *Note: Make sure you are coming from April stock firmware
    1) Download the ROM.zip and the boot.img from above
    2) Plug the device into a PC and open a terminal
    3) adb reboot bootloader
    4) fastboot flash boot boot.img --slot all
    5) fastboot reboot-bootloader
    6) Using the device volume buttons, select Recovery Mode
    7) Go to Wipe data/factory reset and confirm the wipe
    8) When it's done, select Apply update from ADB (This will allow you to sideload the ROM.zip)
    9) adb sideload S*.zip
    10) Reboot


    Updating:
    1) Download the ROM.zip from above (and boot image for root, if needed)
    2) Plug the device into a PC and open a terminal
    3) adb reboot recovery
    4) Select Apply update from ADB (This will allow you to sideload the ROM zip)
    5) adb sideload S*.zip
    6) Reboot


    For both installs, IF you want root, patch the provided boot image with Magisk Manager and flash it with fastboot


    ROM Changelog:
    April security patch
    SFUNY lock screen clock style
    Advanced charging info
    QS Panel opacity
    Quick PIN/Password unlock

    Thanks for your continued support - pickins are getting slim for the 3XL!

    To update magisk with this rom, would I use the direct method or keep patching the boot file from the first post?
    You can use direct method

    So really weird issue I'm running into. A lot of emails now are in Comic Sans. It's driving me nuts. I think somehow the default font in webview got changed to conic sans, and it's looks awful. Reading articles in this goofyass don't is just annoying. An example is Wikipedia, all article headings are in this stupid font, but not the article text. Often times on sites it's the whole page. Any idea how to fix?

    Pixel 5 users had similar issues and fixed using some Magisk module. I'll look into this though, however I can't make any promises on a "fix" as I'm not sure why it would be happening

    I haven't used Magisk for well over a year, I would think that you should just stick with what works for you (I do include boot images with each release)
