Hi, sorry I have a couple of questions regarding this ROM.

(1) XZ1C internal is very small. I heard that since Marshmallow, there is an option to "flash as internal" for microSD. Is this option avaible in this ROM? I have a 128GB microSD which I'm planning to use.

(2) I need to use mbanking apps, including Google Pay. I heard that rooting will disable this capability because SafetyNet test will not be passed. However, I've read that this ROM passed the SafetyNet test, is that mean I can use Google Pay/mbanking apps?

1) Although this ROM as the option (if SD card formatted clean and correctly), It is not recommended to use SD card as internal storage. If want to use it as internal storage, use it at your own risk.

2) Your answer is in the very 1st post of this thread

(1) Understood.

(2) Sorry, I reword my question badly. My question is, is passing SafetyCheck (as claimed in the first post) is enough to use Google Pay and other mobile banking apps?

Hello users !

I was wondering if y'all still want PE 11 or give it a try to Havoc 4.1 (Android 11) ?


(Please clean flash if you are willing to try)
It comes with 2 versions:
Gapps - where it has gapps like PE has
non-gapps: where it is like lineage, vanilla build, need to manually flash gapps

Let me know if y'all still want PE 11

Hi,
can you perhaps elaborate the main differences so the users can better decide? I used this PE till yesterday (needed to try lineage 18.1 as its android 11) but am really uncertain about the main differences as the both have so much in common.

Personal differences:
- Better battery life and performane

Other differences:
- Pixel like experience but with UI customization
- And no other difference other than branding literally :/

If willing to try havoc, I may suggest to wait until havoc 4.2 comes out

Meh, they are basicly the same thing... In my opinion, you are better doing only Havoc and not having to worry about maintain two different (or not) ROMs, this way you can focus more on Havoc bugs/features and improve it faster and also have more free time for yourself! ;)

Obviously it's only my opinion, do what you feel happy to do! 😊

Thanks for this summary and your efforts! I think with 4.2 I will take a shoot (the lack of GPS in lineage sucks😩)

This is basically my opinion ... if they are basically the same, then please choose the version you like tinkering more ;)

Hi, works in this rom Lift to wake feature? I have set up a face unlock, but it just makes sense only with this functionality. It worked well on Havoc, but I can't even find its setting here. Thanks for the help.

I am sorry but what does gsi mean?
A GSI is a Generic System Image. There's a lot of technical stuff that I don't understand but any device running android 8.1 or higher can use a GSI based off of Project Treble(I might have some specifics wrong).

A GSI, as I meant it, is not built for a specific device but will fit several within it's image(like arm64 a only or arm64 A/B).
Since it's not specific to a device, some functionality will be missing, like the camera button for example. This PE Unofficial was made for the xz1c and so device-specific features are taken into account.

Again, that's how I understand it but anyone can please correct me if needed.

Thanks! great job on this rom!

It seems the volte works fine on my xz1c, i use china mobile sim card, and i switched modem to "amss_fsg_lilac_china_mobile_cn_ims_tar.mbn", then i made a call and i still connected to the internet at the same time.

BTW i would like to know if there is a way to double tap to wake the phone? my old pixel2 have this option in system gesture settings.

thanks again.

There were some features that did not work well in my environment.

#Environment
Device is SO-02K
SIM is Rakuten SIM
Country is Japan
OS is PE November

#NFC is not working.
It turns off right after I turn it on.

#VoLTE is "amss_fsg_lilac_tar.mbn" message
I was able to communicate by selecting LTE only from *#*#4636#*#*.

I had the same problem with Havoc-OS 4.6.
NFC is currently not implemented in Havoc-OS, so it is excluded.

Thanks for the beautiful OS!

      Safetynet has officially gone out of my hands... you need magisk hide props config to pass safetynet.

    • May
      - May security patch { RU }
      - Added Sony Music { MU }
      - Added ExFAT support { MU }
      - Updated camera app: { HU }
      . Camera app doesn't crash anymore
      . It now supports storing media in sd card

      - Fixed GPS (GNSS) { HU }
      - Idle CPU frequency lowered to lowest harware level possible - 300 MHz { MU }
      - Face unlock is removed due to copyright issues with Motorola, and is only available in Official ROM { RU }

      Important Safetynet update:
      . Safetynet has now got a bit stronger. Allow me to elaborate...
      . In the april versions of this PE, magisk was not required to pass safetynet (cts and basic integrity), but now with May version
      it is required.
      . From the magisk app, under settings, make sure "Magisk Hide" switch is enabled (althought it is enabled by default, but still, just make sure), because now, that "Magisk Hide" should be enabled in-order to pass safetynet (cts and basic integrity).

      - Kernel updated to 4.4.223 { HU }
      WARNING....
      Please Backup before updating.
      If you experience any weird glitches, kindly clean flash by the steps refreshed for May above, as the ROM developers have re-base some stuffs.
