I'm not sure if this is of any help at all, because the ROM I'm using is not available on GitHub, but I just checked this battery widget on crDroid, and it works for me flawlessly.
Here's a link to the zip of the build I'm currently using.
crDroit itself has a GitHub page, but they don't officially support Pixel 4a.
Maybe you can make use of either of these sources.
Yes crdroid has that implementation of pixel port. I'll try n implement but depends on free time I get. Also A13 just around the corner so let's see.

Pixel port is done. I'll release soon with quick tap & adaptive charging.

Not at all.
I'm not fully aware what ZRam is (it's kinda like pagefile on windows/linux, correct?), but I'm fairly sure that this 'hesitation' is present when the app is no longer in RAM, so Android has to load it up again. I know for a fact that my Galaxy Wearable app takes a solid second and a half to open up. When it's been sitting at the end of my recents page for long enough, if I tap on it, again, it takes about a second and a half to open up. If it's still in RAM, it opens up instantly.
Obviously, this happens with apps other than Galaxy Wearable, but that's where it's most noticeable.
ZRam is not "kinda like" a page file, it IS a page file. The difference being that instead of the internal memory (lets call it the "disk" for simplicity), ZRam uses a compressed allocation of RAM. It is faster to compress / uncompress and then write/read to RAM than it is to the MUCH slower "disk".

Ater I posted regarding the lag, I used my device and didn't experience the lag on app switches. But then, I used my utility script which force closes all apps (greenify mimic), and THATS when the lag occurred, when I used the recent apps switcher. So not likely really any ROMs fault, but my own.

What type of configuration you do?? Can you tell me ?
I think thats is way OT on this or any other specific ROM thread. Its probably better as an idea for its own thread.

I have a very weird problem, which appears randomly but goes away as soon as I restart my phone.

My touchscreen suddenly stops working between X=695 and X=775, each x value +-10, depending on which Y position I am.

I noticed it that sometimes me keyboard seemd to bug out and didn't want to use the letter i, I then acitvated to show pointer in the dev options and then I saw the touchscreen works everywhere beside that small area exactly where the letter i sits on my keyboard. When I try to touch there it skips between the left and right border of that area and picks a touch coordinate seemingly at random.

If there are logs that would help with this problem I gladly provide them. It is no dealbreaker, since I can simply restart my phone, but still weird that it happens.

went up and down of the left side, but when I try on the right side it skips most of the time. Not always sometimes it get somes touch points inbetween, but most times it clips me to the side.

Does this only happen on this ROM? I'm fairly sure that it's a hardware fault.

At first I would have thought hardware defect aswell, but since it fixes itself after a system reboot I am leaning towards software.

I went from Stock Android 11 to SuperiorOS11 to directly SuperiorOS12. I only noticed the problem recently after one of the SuperiorOS12 updates.

I could try a factory reset, but naturally I wanna evade this, if possible.

Are you using a 3rd party kernel? Any funky Magisk modules?

No different Kernel, no Magisk or other root things. The only somewhat different thing is that I use Nova Launcher, but since the problem appears systemwide, no matter in which App I am in, I don't think the launcher would have any influence.

    Especially nowadays, I think some super important safety patches get delivered via Google Play?
    So even if you use an outdated device (I think A11 and above?), you still get must-have updates.

    I'm not entirely sure how this works, but I remember hearing something along these lines a while back.

    Hello jayant I have one question. Is it necessary that phone should get its security updates every month.
    What are you using your phone for? If you are plaything Pokomon, not so much. But if you are using it for banking and transferring your life savings between accounts, on your device, then I would be looking to keep it up to date (I personally do not do any real financials on my phone). Which would also entail updating the device, once it is no longer receiving updates. And if you are really serious, some manufacturers are better than others. also, not everything can be updated via google play. They are moving that way, and some play distributed items (eg webview) have security flaws that get fixed over time, but they are not there yet.

    Depends on how concerned about security updates :D

    You can, by all means, use a ROM that hasn't gotten security updates in years, but naturally, the longer you don't receive updates for, the more likely it is that your device become vulnerable.

    Yeah suppose if we don't get superior Android 13 update for about 2 months so is that going to be any attack of hacker or any malware issue. Is there any serious issue.
    I was on Superior 11 for a long time, maybe 6 or 7 months before I updated to 12 and I didn't have any issues.
