Yea I found that odd too when reading the first post.. Why can you not wipe the system partition? I assume the ROM will recopy over the system partition... and not leave whatever is on there... Particularly something that might be needed on there... lol. What if I was coming from MIUI on Nexus 5x.... LOL System partition would be a mess.
almost everything works fine ATM.
I have a couple of questions: this ROM comes with sphinx kernel v. 3.1 and now there's 3.6 version. Is it possible to dirty flash the new version of the kernel or I'll have to wait a new version of the ROM?
WhatsApp bug it appears that WhatsApp can't find proper access to the earphone speaker. It's a well known bug in the 8.1 stock rom. I didn't think it affected also Android pie. can me make something to fix this issue?
Maybe this one, it works for me https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-5x/development/bullhead-nexus-rom-t3995623after using this rom(pixel2) for about 2.5 3 years, its still running fast and smooth and all the basic functional parts works great, with fast charger pro app i get 4 to 5 hours sot and 4-5 days standby time with this old good friend phone(imagine how old is this phone and its battery capacity, insane result ), i'm just looking for a reason to update and test android 9 or 10 roms but havent found one lol if anyone suggests a good rom please let me know and i wish the developer of this rom would continue to build roms based on 9 or 10
