The battery life on this is amazing. 10/10 ROM so far. Been using it @ work for music for a couple hours and still above 90% battery.

Is it possible to install pixel font to this ROM system wide?

Also, I can't see that it's listed so I'm assuming it's not included, but can you long press volume buttons for music skip and torch?

Thanks guys!

Use Google's Android Flash tool and uncheck the wipe data.


I have used this method to flash Android 12 stable stock firmware.
When I look disc space available it says 50GB of data is used, unfortunately I cannot access my files and photos anymore.
Downloads folder is empty, as well as Whatsapp data...
So the DCIM folder is empty, but the available space tells me there is a lot of data still on the phone...

Is it possible that two userdata partitions are present now??
Anyone know how to gain access to the other data?? And copy it to 'this install'?

Go to Settings > Storage, it'll give you a clearer picture of how much space system and apps are using. 50GB does sound like a lot, but I'm only on the stock firmware, so apps+system is about 36GB for me.

I tried flashing the 11.6.0 version manually since I don't like Android 12 so far. I did it by the book even with fastboot -w but when I get to the point where it should boot to the OS first time I get a cryptic logo of a bottle and some fire behind it which could mean anything. What is happening there? I am using the latest platform tools and during the process nothing seems wrong. Phone is Pixel 5/redfin.

That's how the boot animation looks so let it sit until it fully boots into Android

Ohh well I let it sit for about 15 minutes and then got worried since I wouldn't interpret an image of fire and a boiling/spilling bottle as a correct boot process indicator, since I also didn't find any info about this image and I couldn't ask in the Telegram group because, well, my phone was still booting/bricked.
Anyway, I went back to latest stock android 11 for redfin for now and got TWRP running. Maybe I can flash Proton without data wipe in the future. Or can maybe I can just restore the data partition with TWRP? Should be compatible if unencrypted, right?

I'm not sure you could ask in the TWRP thread for P5

Currently trying the web install on my new (to me) p5. System was fully updated before I started, things seem to be working well, then it gets stuck web status says rebooting system, phone is loaded on a fastbootd screen. Left alone for ~30 min with no change.

Any suggestions/ideas?

SOLVED: Reinstalled the google usb drivers and switched to USB-A/C cable instead of USB-C/C cable fixed it. Weird though the USB-C cable worked for fastboot but not ADB.

    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.

    Builds with and without minimal Google services (gapps) included are provided for convenience.

    Using the quick and easy web installer is recommended unless you have a specific reason to download and install the ROM 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/
