I do not use Geico or HSBC, but I downloaded their latest apps from the Play store to test for you all. Both opened without any issues and made it to the login screen. Not sure what issues you ran into.

The only apps I had issues with are due to magisk (not proton) and are Chase and Gpay, but magisk hide fixed them.

I'm on Proton 12.3.1, rooted with Magisk, but did not hide either app.

Out of my 10 years of rooting experience starting with the Samsung Galaxy S3, this ROM with the web installer has been the easiest rom to install in my entire life. Great work! I have a few small recomendations to make your ROM even better. With the web installer, at the end there is an option to make a donation which is nice but one thing that I would include is a list of features to give an idea of what the user is getting. So for an example it should say something like "Congratulations! Your Google Pixel 5 is now running ProtonAOSP 12.4.0. here is a list of some of the benefits and features of your newly downloaded ProtonAOSP ROM

Feature #1
Feature #2
Feature #3
etc...."

Great Rom, using it as my daily driver.
Some Information for you guys
now, 2022/07:
Running fine on latest Update, installed via Web Installer (which is great!)
with Magisk the latest Version (25.1) and latest Proton Kernel.
Safetynet is fine, Banking App is working great with Zygisk (every google app + banking app), force Zygisk, rename Magisk and Airfrozen (freeze Magisk).

Something to fix here on XDA Thread: Mainpost (Post 1 from this thread) shows still Android 11, but we're on Android 12.

Something that would be cool: Magisk, vbmeta disable and Proton Kernel via Web Installer.

And one question: Any Chance that Proton AOSP is coming on Android 12L ?

FYI, what you described is on the website, just not in the installer completion window.

I am having trouble using the web installer. Everything seems to work fine until it boots the screen that is labeled "fastbootd". It begins to unpack what I think is the system .IMG and then my web browser crashes. I have tried Bing and Chrome and it fails at the same place everytime. Any idea what is happening?

I'm going to download it and try a manual install next. Do I have to install the whole Android SDK Platform Tools or is Fastboot_ADB enough? I already have that.

Are you on Windows 10? 11? Linux?

No old school. Windows 7.

Update:
I was able to install Proton manually today and it really wasn't as scary as the instructions make it out to be.
But then I have flashed a new bootloader on a Droid Incredible where if you lost connection to your computer or the phone died it was truly bricked.
I am wondering if maybe my browser crashed because I ran out of ram. It is an old computer with only 4GB of ram and if the online tool was causing the web browser to unpack a file in ram maybe it just ran out of space and crashed the program.
I'm thinking out loud here and feedback is welcome.

Hi all, hoping someone can take pity on me and provide some assistance. Yesterday I was a bit drunk and wanted to factory reset my phone. I wound up on XDA because "hey why not try a new ROM," something I haven't played with in about 6 years and was never proficient with anyways. I used the web installer here which worked flawlessly, dangerously easy for someone inebriated.

This morning I'm trying to go back to factory and after my best attempt I hit a roadblock. What I've done so far: I downloaded the platform tools and set up adb in my PATH environment. Downloaded the Pixel 5 Android 13 OTA file. And have followed all of the steps here without any issue up until actually sideloading the .zip. It gets about 45% complete then fails. My phone says it aborted and I shouldn't try to reboot or turn the phone off until I successfully sideload an image. It says error 21 and signature verification failed. All I did to the .zip was rename it and move it to the platform-tools folder.

Can anyone help me out here? Thank you so much.

Edit- was able to revert to stock by flashing a factory image, not the OTA image. The Google Messages app immediately crashed and I was reminded why I started this in the first place. Good times.

    Good deal. Very welcome, glad you're back up and running. 👍

    I'll recommend my personal setup.

    Stock ROM rooted + AOSP MODs.

    Gives the best of both. Stock ROM for stability. AOSP MODs for that custom experience.

    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/
