So... I downloaded this ROM and I installed it and I have to say that is a very nice looking piece of software. It seems very responsive and fluid even if I'm installing some apps in the background. I have some "complaints" though. For some reason the "back" gesture doesn't work, both recent and home gestures are working fine. The other thing is that the "home bar" isn't visible and I don't see any option to enable it. Battery percentage isn't visible after enabling the option. The drop down notification is transparent but the buttons are visible and working. "Tap to wake" isn't working. And last but not least there is not an option to disable the button backlight. Since Pixel Experience stopped being supported I was looking for a ROM other than LineageOS, which is the best offering at the moment. Hopefully this one will do it.

UPDATE
Last night I was playing with the ROM and I discovered that you can enable battery percentage in "Customization" tab in Settings and not in "Statusbar Tuner" in System tab although there is an option there. In the same "Customization" tab you can change if you want the notifications to be transparent or not.

    Please report your issues to the dotOS developers here as these reside to the ROM rather than device specific issues. I cannot help you directly.

    I have recently released Pixel Experience 11 builds btw (Unofficial but official later in the year)😉
