I've been running the rom for a day now and I'm super satisfied. Only now my question is, why have certain google apps such as camera, phone and sms app been removed? Is this for a privacy reason or just to keep the rom as small as possible?

hi there, it seems that on any google camera past 8.2.204 (at least in terms of APKs i can find, 8.2.400 was the next version i tried), trying to take a night sight picture will crash the camera app.

would you be able to look into this to see if it's an issue with the rom? thanks!

furthermore, is there any way to auto allow Google Photos to modify images/files without asking? it's been given the storage permissions, however any time i delete or edit a photo in any way, a pop up shows up "Allow Photos to [do x] to this photo?"

Is the mod also giving Pixel 5 camera HDR+ with bracketing feature

From Google AI blog, that's a feature exclusive for Pixel 4a 5g and Pixel 5 (in all camera modes), while Pixel 4a and Pixel 4 have it only in Night mode.
I believe so. It's in the advanced settings on as default.

The issue with GCam Night Sight has been fixed for the next ROM version. It was caused by the latest GCam update (8.2.400) making assumptions about the ROM build that only hold true on stock.

In the meantime, downgrade GCam to 8.2.300 or older if you want Night Sight to work now.

Sorry, I don't want to come across as forceful, but when will the July patch be out for this rom?

I'm just having a play about with this device and wondering what would be the easiest way to go back to stock? I do like this ROM and find it nice to be back on a custom ROM again after have my 5T for ages running all sorts. Thanks for the ROM.

I have tried the flash-all.sh way but terminal doesn't process it.
I've also tried flashing the individual boot, system etc in fastboot

Just wondering if there's any chance of having the "increase touch sensitivity for when using a screen protector" implemented into when you do a new build?

Have a new screen protector and am getting occasional non detected touches when I 100% definitely did make good contact.

As the ProtonAOSP project expands to support more devices, bandwidth and maintenance costs are increasing.

    I got exactly the same issue, with Google Pay telling me I am running a rooted rom or custom software.

    I was using ProtonAOSP 11.3.3 with ProtonKernel 1.1 without any modification, no root and no Magisk.
    I upgraded to ProtonAOSP 11.6.0 and ProtonKernel 2.1 but SafetyNet test is still failing (basicIntegrity succeeds but ctsProfileMatch fails)

    Is there any way to pass SafetyNet other than installling MagiskHide ?
    you could try methods from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/tutorial-unlock-bootloader-get-root-and-valid-safetynet.4178673/

    it is working at least on my stock rom now

    @kdrag0n This rom has given new life to my Pixel 5 since I installed yesterday. I've had stock since I bought it when it came out and I've been going back and forth between it and my S21 due to the lag/janky scrolling of the 5 on stock. There is really a major difference on this rom and I really appreciate your efforts. I love the size and weight of this phone and of course the camera. Now it's back to my daily driver.

    Have yet to really test battery, but seems fine. Even if it slips a little bit thats a no problem trade-off for the increased performance. No over heating issues either.

    I gave a small donation yesterday, hope you got it.

    Does anybody have this issue with the rom, version 11.6 ProtonAOSP, no magisk or kernel with google pay not letting me add my card and play store saying device is not certified? Do i need to have magisk and kernel with all the neccessary safetynet modules to make google pay work? (it says on ProtonAOSP that the stock image indeed has "safetynet passing out of box")

    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.

    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. My new Universal SafetyNet Fix Magisk module solves the problem for now: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-module-universal-safetynet-fix-1-1-0.4217823/
