Not sure what to say buddy,

I'm using Proton ROM with Proton Kernel and using the Google camera app directly from play store. Nothing special 🤷🏽‍♂️
Got it.. I use FnG and nonavbar substratum theme .. it causing this weird gcam behavior .. had to figure out how to use gcam and get rid of navbar at the same time

@kdrag0n I flashed proton today with the kernel, have to say, I love it, super fast, can't comment on battery yet because only had the phone a few hours but performance is fantastic so, thank you.

Just wondering if there's any chance that AOD will be ported to this anytime soon? I have no tile option in pull down menu and I cannot find it in settings.

Also if it's possible to get "buttons" in the system settings for things like reorientation of the volume keys when in landscape view, and to show the volume panel on the left?

The ability to select and remove status bar icons in settings would also be great.

I tried this ROM for a little while yesterday. I have some comments.

First, please provide a flashable ZIP. I was uncomfortable using the web installer because of the security risk; I was less than pleased to discover this writes to not only boot and system, but the bootloader and radio as well.

I then attempted to boot TWRP in order to flash Magisk, which got stuck in a boot loop.

I have always preferred Google Chrome as the browser of choice; the built in browser should be removable.

I ended up having to do a complete factory reflash.
if you're an OG then you should understand by now that this sense of entitlement isn't considered polite or acceptable on XDA. This product literally costs you nothing.

Making feature requests is a far cry from the demands you're making.

You're better off on stock.

I installed gcam from the play store, and all runs well, but switching between back and front cam is veeeery slow. Any idea what this could be? I'm also running the Proton kernel.

Also, I just got this Pixel 5 and came from a Oneplus 8 Pro. Especially with this ROM I see almost no performance differences. I don't know how stock is (Went straight to this ROM), but comparing those two SoCs, I'm amazed how the only "performance" difference I see is 120hz vs 90hz. Well done man
the google camera on play store is not the newest one.

do a search for "google camera apk mirror" and you'll find the latest one. no idea why google doesn't update the play store version...

Quick question, can you set a static IP on ethernet connection? It's a massive deal breaker for me, could anyone check/confirm? Thanks!

Best practice would be to set an IP reservation from your router, and not from the device. this will prevent IP conflicts.

this is a GREAT ROM and kernel. i've been using both for a few days now, coming from CalyxOS.

performance and battery life are indeed better on Proton than with stock or Calyx. perfectly stable. connection switchover (ex Wifi to LTE) are much faster on Proton, which is one of my biggest peeves with Android, overall. This ROM has fixed that issue.

I'm using microg (from f-droid, the magisk module for microg isn't working with latest magisk right now). Working without issue. Viper4android module from magisk works without issue (no need for legacy or compatability modes).

Thank you, dev, for this awesome work and continued support.

Can't speak to the banking apps question. I would say "probably".

Yes, you can set IP reservations on ethernet. The router doesn't care if it's Wifi or ethernet. Everything needs an IP to move data.

I don't think you understand my question, in asking if the STATIC IP can be set on eth0. NOT WiFi, thanks

lol i understand just fine.

setting a STATIC IP is the old way. the new way is to set a RESERVATION. you get the same effect without the drawbacks of a static IP.

you can set it on any adapter you like. you just need the mac address of the adapter. in this case, the adapter is eth0. you need the mac address for the eth0 adapter. you'll use that to set your reservation on the router.

    Hi guys.
    Can anybody help me find how to deactivate auto-call answering when I'm already in a call?
    It's the 1st time I have a phone doing this and it's very annoying.
    Anytime I'm in a call and another call is coming, I just have the time to hear the couple of "bip" notifying me about the second call and in the next second I'm in call with the new caller. The 1st one, obviously, is put in hold.
    It's very frustrating :/
    Thanks!
    I have no idea how this usually works or how it behaves, but it's probably AOSP Dialer's default behavior. I took a quick look at the settings and found Calls -> Additional settings -> Call waiting. Have you tried changing it?
    Anyone got text selection on recent page working?
    It looks like Pixel Launcher shows the text selection button but the feature doesn't actually work on 11.5.0. However, I've gotten it working now and will consider including it in the next version after reviewing privacy considerations related to the fix.

    I couldn't even get text selection button to show mate.

    I'm using the standard Launcher that comes with the ROM, might sound stupid but I'm assuming that is the pixel launcher?
    No, read the FAQ: https://protonaosp.kdrag0n.dev/faq#missing-pixel-feature
    1
    @kdrag0n just some clarification on the FAQ, it mentions not adding weather widget to the ambient display.

    Am I missing something in that I cannot get ambient display to work on this ROM full stop? It's not been ported over has it?

    Apologies if this has been discussed earlier but I feel like I've read through the whole thread and not seen it mentioned not being available on this ROM.

    EDIT: Also, can anyone tell me how to get battery monitor on the power menu as pictured in the screenshots please?
    What do you mean? All ambient display-related settings and functionality are exactly the same as stock.

    The battery monitor is an unreleased prototype app of mine, unrelated to the ROM.

    ProtonAOSP
    Android 11 ROM​

    ProtonAOSP is a minimal Android fork (custom ROM) focused on UI/UX and performance, with a touch of privacy.

    Usage with my Proton Kernel is recommended to get the most out of your phone. The ROM does not include Proton Kernel, so you will need to flash it yourself. The ROM will still work with other kernels, but you will not get the benefits of Proton Kernel.

    Screenshots
    Screenshots of the latest version

    Installation
    This ROM is currently distributed as factory images, similar to stock. Flash it the same way you would flash stock factory images. Don't forget to wipe all data using "fastboot -w" before booting the ROM.

    Firmware is included, so there is no specific requirement for which version of the stock ROM you are coming from.

    You can also use the quick & easy web installer, which allows you to install and update the ROM from any computer or phone without using the command line. The installer works entirely within your web browser and completes in as little as 4 minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Consider using the web installer instead of installing manually.

    A new ROM with the January security update and SafetyNet passing out-of-the-box will be released within a few days. The SafetyNet failures are caused by new updates released by Google yesterday.
