Does this ROM support NFC? I have installed this and am currently giving it a whirl, but it does not seem to have NFC because the quick setting tile for NFC says "unavailable." Am I missing something?

I need to switch to another ROM simply because I need NFC, but I am willing to give Pixel Extended another go once the issue is resolved (if it is indeed an issue, that is).

One more thing: volume down button + power button gives you a screen capture, but Pixel Extended does not give you the option of turning it into a scrolling capture. It's one of those things ---- I did not know about scrolling screen capture until recently, but once you get the taste of it, not having it feels very inconvenient. Call me spoiled. ;)

I thank all the devs for your hard work for sharing this wonderful ROM with the rest of us! 🙌

Oh, I would like to mention this too. The FM Radio app supports the band 76.0MHz and up. That is great news for someone like me who is from Japan, because that's exactly the frequency Japan uses. The Xiaomi's stock FM Radio app only supports 87MHz and up or something, so with that, there are a few stations I cannot pick up. I do not listen to radio at all in ordinary times, but I would definitely like to be able to if there should be a large-scale natural disaster.

Can you please include a global settings to change keyboards like the ones found in MIUI ROMs?

I know holding the spacebar allows me to change keyboards, however, the keyboard I change to (Ridmik keyboard on google play store, used to write Bangla) does not do the same. So I am basically stuck in that keyboard, and cannot shift back to gboard unless I uninstall the app.

Is there any settings already available for this? I tried third party apps but all of them crash.

You can take scrolling screenshots, after taking a screenshot you'll see the "capture more" button. This basically can give you a scrolling screenshot.

Found one bug:
In some parts of the UI in certain applications, and in some images, the picture/or UI becomes abnormally tiny, to an extent where you cannot see anything. So far I've found these two examples.

  • When I click on any image in Reddit (not just the post, the image) (1st screenshot). This also didn't happen in other ROMs or devices. This does not happen in browser mode either. Saw someone reporting this for PixelPlusUI A12 as well, any problem with Pixel Experience? Workaround (not fix) for this issue described here
  • Update: This also happens with the imgur app
  • When I use the Pick to Wake app, the settings UI gets too small (Screenshot given, 2nd screenshot). This did not happen with previous ROMs while using the same app version. I suspect this might take place for any other app using an older UI instead of the modern UI
I did not change any "spacing" options in settings.
Is this fixable from settings or some bug? Kindly fix this if its a bug
Thanks for report i will check in next update

Thanks a lot for taking your time to look into issues. Can you look into two more things as well?

1. The proximity sensor sometimes goes off even when I am not using any phone apps, and thus the screen turns black when I have a hand in front of it. This sometimes results in some weird behaviors such as screen repeatedly turing off when in a zoom meeting (even when I do nothing). Can you set it in a way so that it will only work when in a phone call/messenger call/Whatsapp call (or any other type of audio or video call)?

2. The keyboard often turns black/dims for a short time when I hit the spacebar. Can you please look into that? UPDATE: It only happens in some apps like facebook, AND if I touch at the very bottom. Resizing keyboard height, making gesture bar visible etc. could be a solution but for now I guess I'll try to not touch too low.

Another thing: When I set "show brightness control in QS tiles", the brightness bar's icon is white even when I am in dark mode. Can you make this the dark colour or is it a base feature? Its not that much of a big issue

Nevertheless great work! Really liking it over the stock rom that I was using, and all the bugs in my previous stock rom are resolved here.

Mod Edit: Quote removed since post removed.

Lower your expectations, you can download the MIUI camera from elsewhere considering this is an AOSP ROM.

This is incredibly fast and makes my phone feel brand new again, this time a lot faster.

So far no bugs from me, have flashed the MIUI camera and it works great. Thanks for the ROM.

hello,

Could you tell me which version of MIUI camera you have flashed, is it ANX camera ? or some other

Is there a good "official" port of a gallery app, which grants me access to the gallery immediately? I miss old galleries like the one from samsung devices or Miui. I need to tap "gallery" in the google photo app in order to get to my stuff and its really annoying.

You can try simple gallery pro from F-droid store (its legally free here but paid on the play store). Its very lightweight, non-bloated and has no ads. Also has a lot of options like locked albums. It might not "look" as good as the MIUI gallery, but it gets the job done pretty well (you can customize the colours if you want).

Should I update gapps from the Play store or I should keep them at the version they are?

For example updating the Recorder app results in the transcription feature not working like it did initially, so I had to uninstall updates.

Do you recommend not updating from the Play Store, or it should be fine?

Thanks for your help man. Also, why wouldnt you want to update your Gapps? Didnt have any problems updating Gapps. Recently installed Pixel Extended on another device and it works without problems.

    After v4.3 update, Settings > System > Gestures doesn't have Quick Tap option. It was there before and worked properly. Now it doesn't work.

    Now I installed Tap, Tap app and when I open it, it says disable Quick Tap. There's no menu for me to disable it. Please fix it or show me a way to disable it through Terminal or something.

    Thanks.
    Found it!

    For anyone having the same problem:
    Run

    Code:
    adb shell settings put secure columbus_enabled 0

    Or the same without adb shell in a root terminal. Looks like your ROM is enabling that setting by default for some reason. You shouldn't need to reboot after, but probably best to just in case.

    Is there any adb command to enable search in settings? It got removed from 4.3 for some reason. The gesture in which you can change the brightness simply by tapping at the top of your phone is removed too.
    Also there are a lot of crashes in this version even while using normal social media apps. The System UI also crashes at least once (even 2-3 times) a day.
    The animations are smoother individually, but the whole performance is overall much more laggy and its literally like using MIUI right now. I clean flashed this version btw and I regret upgrading to 4.3, should've stayed in 4.2.
    The only 2 things I appreciate are that the haptic feedback has gotten better and the brightness UI on QS menu looks more nice.
    I understand that the devs work very hard but I really think they should've just released a security upgrade this month and refined the newer A12 more before releasing it. I've been using this custom rom since 4.0 and its probably the worst upgrade.

    Also I don't understand why people are making the custom rom devs release (or they themselves are working on) Android 12L roms like isn't it a tablet OS? It's not a normal upgrade

    This 4.4 update is very good..i haven't found any bug till now.. kuddos to the developers

    I switched from pixel experience, and there was option to control volume of different apps. Like i could watch something on YouTube and have game audio on like 10%. Is there any setting that I'm missing?
