As the ProtonAOSP project expands to support more devices, bandwidth and maintenance costs are increasing. You can help support the project and keep it alive with a recurring donation, or alternatively buy me a coffee. Everything helps, but a recurring donation is the best way to keep the project alive in the long term.

I just installed the Google phone app from the playstore. Note I haven't fully tested it yet. Also a magisk module for dailer framework.
Are you 100% sure it's working? Are you able to change the Google Voice of call screen? That's the sign that it's working correctly.

I managed to get it working by systemizing the Google Dialer and I think I tried that module before and didn't have any luck, but I don't have RCS working no matter what I do. I'll try again later today after a clean flash though.

Yeah, you need to systemize the dialer as a priv-app. Dialer Framework is unneeded. As to the RCS issue, the "trying to verify" bug has hit anyone trying to set it up again. That's going to hit any rom you try as it's server side from what I can gather. Old workarounds don't seem to work anymore. Next method I have is leave it on trying to connect and it'll connect when the bug is fixed.

Odd enough, I managed to get it working by doing nothing during a clean clash.

I had to clean flash due to messing up something with GBoard and could no longer install it through the Play Store for some weird reason. I also had a different Google Dialer settings UI than I was used to before I clean flashed, now I'm back to the UI I'm used to, but call screen is working too, so I'm all setup now.

    Read most but cant find root? How can I get root? Sorry if this is a dumb questions.
    Proton on the Pixel 4 XL uses the stock kernel image from Google, so you just want to get your hands on the boot.img from the factory image, use Magisk to modify that, then flash it.

    hey , how did you restrict apps that boot during device bootup ? Does it required SDMaid Pro ? and is root required ?
    yes and yes, ROOT with using SD Maid (I have Pro), so I am not 100% certain if BOOT / APP boot control is premium only or in the free version so test it and let me know. Once in SD Maid, go to app management, boot (see pic 1), and disable ALL apps you dont need. You would be VERY surprised how many apps start with boot (mainly GAMES and streaming services) so they can push you annoying game and app notifications. SCREW that, it does nothing but wastes battery, RAM, and annoys me the crap out of me so I block and disable them. Then, for things like the hidden Verizon tracking apps, I disable with IPChains so its firewall'd and dropped at the source and doesn't leave my device. Those apps (com.verizon.lkagent / com.verizon.obdm_permissions / com.verizon.mips.services AKA MY Verizon Services) start with boot and not only run in the background but collect device info and send to verizon, NO WAY that's happening! By firewalling those UUIDs, they cant reach the tracking services or verizon. Since they cant check in, they cant use RAM or battery or network (or at are using less resources than if allowed).

    I do this on ALL ROMs I test and use (even stock), but you can also freeze those apps with TiB (if you have) but freezing disables the app as if its removed, whereas turning off the BOOT, disables the auto-start BUT doesn't freeze (disable) so its still usable on demand. I use all of the apps I disable on BOOT, and I have NEVER had an issue with disabling boot so I highly recommend reviewing boot apps. Just keep an eye out and watch for apps you need to receive notifications from (like XDA or Messenger, or Amazon/eBay), stuff like that. I do not disable those auto-starts as I DO want update notifications but only a VERY few apps get to send notifications for my droids's (email/work/XDA/TXT stuff like that) or can run.

    I'm my last pic (I updated my post to show this piece), you'll see the verizon BULL SPIT services trying over and over to check-in but can't! This is WHY I firewall and DROP ALL verizon crap services so they can't track me. If you haven't seen or read what's being tracked, open the app data for my verizon and you will see literally everything about your device is sent to verizon without your permission. NOPE ain't happenin! They do not have my consent to know this type of information so to me, this is a clear sign of misconduct on their part but there's no way to stop it without firewall'ing the UUIDs (verizon services) or disable the apps and services all together. The problem with disabling them is WiFi calling is interrupted so I found it is better to simply drop the communication to their services then it is with disabling the apps.
