I installed this ROM yesterday, My PIxel 3 is almost 2 years old.
Battery is not that good, but with that rom i just archieved 4H, 16M Screentime at 16%
Thats even better than Stock-ROM.

Keep the Good Work.

Sorry, for my bad English.

We include the prebuilt from stock firmware. I use Nova personally, so I don't really know anything about Pixel launcher, other than it's needed for Smart Space to work correctly, lol

No worries, and thanks. I usually get 4-6 hours SoT, I'm not what you would call a "power user" though. I pretty much use my phone for, well, as a phone

Ended up using lawnchair and thats working great.

I am having a problem with the call screening still. Only half of the assistants messages can be heard, cuts out in and out a lot. Any suggestions?

    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)

    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
