KNOWN ISSUES
1) Google camera doesn't save 30fps videos. Use Snap camera, or record 60fps with Google camera.
2) On all LOS-based ROMs, while the Pixels are recognized as Pixel devices in Photos and it says you have unlimited storage, apparently backing up photos DOES take away from your Drive storage allocation. All I can say is that this is being looked into, but no solution has been found to date.

Aside from that, as far as I can tell there are no longer any bugs! Please report any that you run into, assuming you have tested on a clean install. :good:

Don't expect any support if you:
- are not running the included kernel
- have installed any mods such as Xposed!
- have modified system files

Thanks to:

- Google
- LineageOS
- SlimRoms
- AOSPA (Paranoid Android)
- OmniRom
- NamelessROM
- @beanstown106 for his hard work on this device, specifically the gapps without which the PixelXL wouldn't be a PixelXL in Google's eyes.
- @flar2 for his excellent ElementalX kernel, which is used in crDroid for marlin and sailfish.
- @Bdogg718 for his assistance on random Pixel-related stuff (i.e. the Ambient Display fix).
- Many others... (if you're feeling upset being out of the thanks list just send a PM )

Root / Passing SafetyNet Notes

Passing SafetyNet and/or playing PokemonGO with LOS su

This is a note to folks who play (or like me have kid(s) that play) PokemonGO (PoGo) on their devices. Since root is built-in, by default SafetyNet won't pass with crDroid, hence no PoGo. As an added bonus, since the kernel we use on this build is SELinux Enforcing, this will also allow crDroid install to completely pass SafetyNet!

All you have to do is boot to recovery and flash the unsu-los-pixel.zip.
If you want root back, it's as easy as flashing restoresu-los-pixel.zip.

Download both files from AFH here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=158048

SEE IMPORTANT NOTES BELOW!

Note 1) Through no intentional act of my own, this will sometimes trigger TWRP to boot to the wrong slot. If your phone doesn't boot, or boots back to recovery, just go to the Reboot menu, select the opposite slot and reboot system.

Note 2) This will -only- work on the Pixel & the Pixel XL. Pixels are weird and nest parts of the /system/ directory in /system/system/, hence the need for me to make these for Pixels only.

Note 3) I have tested this on crDroid, but in theory it will work on any LOS-based ROM, becuase they all should implement built-in root the same way.

What flashing this actually does

What this mod does could not be any easier. The un-root script takes the two su files required for root - in /system/system/bin/ and /system/system/xbin/ - and renames them to "s_u". The restore root script renames both files back to "su". That's it. You can do this manually by mounting system and using the file explorer in TWRP, but that takes an annoyingly long time relative to just flashing these.

We actually have a developer, @bhb27 , on the crDroid team that has an app that allows you to pass SafetyNet, but we are having trouble actively mounting system while the phone is booted. If we get that sorted, this won't be necessary, but in the mean time this is the quickest way I can come up with.[/hide]

---

To use Magisk, just flash the remove SU file above, then flash Magisk. Magisk info below.

Instructions for Upgrading Magisk
The ever astute goodwin_c has kindly updated Magisk for Pixels to the new version 12.0!
Ok fellas! Here we go!
Fresh, still hot, update for Magisk. 12.0 this time
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1xZ4VKT4JKZUFhVUlk0enhBVFk
Here are his instructions for cleaning the old version and installing the new one. You will lose root if you don't do this.
...for those who installed previous 11.6, here is guide what to do:
- boot to TWRP
- mount DATA and SYSTEM partitions
- using adb or embedded terminal, remove /data/magisk folder, /data/magisk.img file, /system/sbin_orig folder if exists, /system/magisk folder if exists
- reflash ROM and TWRP
- reboot TWRP (once again to recovery)
- install updated Magisk package + TWRP
- boot to system and enjoy properly working Magisk Root :)

All credit for this great work goes to @goodwin_c !! :good:

crDroid v3.3 is Up!

crDroid v3.3 for Pixel XL (marlin) is live and ready to go! Per our dev, neobuddy89:

v3.3 release will roll out this week. In span of last two-three weeks, we noticed two naughty teams forked our repos directly and branded it as their own work. We do respect open-source but not stealing and rebranding/renaming. Yes, we used parts from other major ROMs with credits while starting ourselves from the scratch - that's how open source should be (and not mere renaming of ROM.) This is message for those who tried to sabotage our work: we invite you to contribute directly to our code base or support us with your resources to build / translate / fix device specific bugs. Together, we can achieve even more heights.

Changelog:
* Donate link under crDroid About (paypal.me/crdroidandroid). Help our team to provide builds faster! <3
* Optional battery info on lock screen while charging
* Optional locking tasks in AOSP recents view
* Weather provider default set to Yahoo.
* New optimized libraries: libpng, ImageMagick, bash, jemalloc and few more.
* Updated substratum resources to date.
* Fixed black of right icon on lock screen
* Jelly (Browser) homepage default set to google.
* Demo mode is back in Settings (For app devs)
* Bug fixes and improvements from google and LOS.

Official devices with v3.0 or later should get OTA notification when build is ready.
Remember, roll out for most devices will happen this week not immediately. Builds needs to be thoroughly tested on device before release to squash common bugs, if any.

Some known common issues:
* Ambient display brightness manual override may not work for all devices. We are working on this.
* Live display tile can crash on boot for few devices. We need LOS to provide proper update since it has major dependencies in framework and CMSDK.
* Any other issue will be device-specific - so check with your device maintainer / LOS team.

Cheers! Have a great day.

Changes specific to our device:
* You need the N2G47O vendor image - DOWNLOAD HERE

The LOS Google Camera bug is still present (where it crashes trying to save 30 FPS videos; 60 FPS works fine) and will be until LOS fixes it. Photos are as they should be.

Gapps still have to be included for now. Required updates should be few.

As always, download link & instructions are in the OP. Dirty flash should be fine, but remember to always clean flash before reporting any problems. Enjoy! :cool:

    crDroid v3.4.3 is Up!

    OMG I'm so excited. I try never to release like this in between crDroid official releases, but thanks to @yung40oz84 linking to the fix that was noticed and verified by @apascual89 , 30 FPS video is working! I just tested it by recording, saving, viewing and deleting three separate videos. That means the only remaining bug is killed!!

    Download here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=745425885120741204

    I have also added Pixel Launcher included as a system app so folks can use it and have swipe-to-Google-Now. Round icons for Pixel Launcher are a work in progress.

    For now, I'm done until we release 3.5, unless you guys find something that's not working that I haven't found yet. Enjoy! :cool:

    crDroid v3.5 is Up!

    July security patch anyone? :cool:

    crDroid v3.5 for sailfish is live and ready to go! Per our dev, neobuddy89:

    crdroid v3.5 is on the verge! And we're back with new update. I have seen lot of posts asking about Android O. Please have patience, we will switch to O once O is released publicly by Google and there is some LOS support available to begin with.

    v3.5 changelog:
    * July 2017 security patched in. (Android 7.1.2_r24)
    * Add toggle to remove dismiss icon in recents view.
    * Configurable long press delay in smartbar settings.
    * Toggle to display close button for longpress notifications.
    * Auto off torch configuration after longpress power button.
    * Fixes for livedisplay tile.
    * Refreshed all tiles.
    * Lots of minor fixes and optimizations.
    * Updated libraries for performance.

    crDroid v3.5 should roll out for supported devices this week! Cheers.

    Changes specific to our device:
    * You need the NJH47D vendor image - DOWNLOAD HERE

    * Changed the LTE+ / 4G+ indicator to be LTE / 4G (without the +) as it is on stock. Thanks for that commit goes to @BeansTown106
    * Gapps still have to be included, and they have been updated within the last few days. Required updates should be few.

    I tried getting live wallpapers to work, but after seeing it would add almost 100 MB to the already big install zip (due to gapps inclusion), I decided against it altogether. You can download an app with them here.

    As always, download link & instructions are in the OP. Dirty flash should be fine, but remember to always clean flash before reporting any problems. Enjoy! :cool:

    So this is based on 8.1 or 7.1..2?
    7.1.2.

    crDroid itself is being brought up to 8.1, but LOS has lost it's Pixel maintainer, so there is no further DT bring up happening right now. From the existing LOS kernel & DT I can build 8.0/8.1, but it just bootloops and I have no clue why.

    Basically we're stuck right now with marlin/sailfish. Fingers crossed someone smarter than I will get an 8.x ROM going and we can figure out from their great code why LOS is currently bootlooping.
