Things I've noticed.
Installing with OpenGapps 10 December beta leads to installer loops of getting started program.
I think this is webview closing and and restarting the add account process.

Without OpenGapps 10 beta
I had to put Gboard.apk in system/system/app just to get a keyboard so I could put my wifi password in. It totally worked!
Magisk 20.1 installs and works fine. No blackscreen for me, I switched to 2.0GB HH TWRP.
First boot takes a little longer because its finishing up android setup so it can crash opening programs before it puts up a notification for finishing setup.
Android Webview and Chrome with correct permissions close to desktop.
Firefox preview works fine with all permissions enabled. (otherwise close to desktop)
I think this has the webview bug that needs to be patch fixed into every rom. (Saw that on the OpenGapps main page).
Camera came up, all programs installed by default came up when correct storage permissions were set (otherwise they closed to desktop). This excludes Chrome sideloaded and newer Webview Sideloaded and set in developer options.
I didn't notice any issues or force closings in the background on setting menus or such like with older versions of android in the yesteryears of custom roms.
I installed the latest Google Frameworks Services, Google play services, and Google play store which still leads to close to desktop.
Other than that everything is working great so far.

Switching to the September OpenGapps Beta fixed all issues with Google Services and Close to Desktop issues.

What is the terminal command for the repartition?
hh_repart -m doesn't seem to work.
i have tested this repartition to 2go
first backup internal memory
then format data and all partitions
back to stock twrp 3.3.1.0
flash hh-clamor-repartition to revert to stock partition and format all
then flash hh_repartition to 2go and go to advanced setting , open terminal and type modify
after the reboot instal twrp image 3.3.1 2GO https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261688236 and format all partitions
you are done and restore your internal memory , you can restore your backup

hh_repartition to 2go
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261690032

there is a tread for this but i have not found @Clamor thank for his work

Thank you everyone for your kind words and response. I will soon work on GApps and PE 10 Plus Edition once it is released. :fingers-crossed:

Special Thanks to @z3DD3r it wasn't possible without him. :highfive:

Hi Asad,
As you can now have 2Go for system partition could you build PE 10 with full features?

regards

Hello, I hope someone can help me ... until a few days ago had the Rom CrDroid with android 9 ... finally I decided to change it because it gave me inexperienced restarts and I installed the PE 10 beta... it works incredibly but I have a problem, I lost the version of the google camera that I had in the previous rom and that worked everything but the spherical photos, for example the HDR and the panoramic ones worked... now I only find the version 3.2.x that has HDR but nothing more. Someone could upload me the version that I had before, since I am not able to find it.

add to this that the version I have right now, does not let me enter the settings of the application, it closes instantly

Asad

OMFG, what have you done??? You just killed me... - again.... -in a good way!
Driving a KitKat-shipped phone with Android Q :cool:

Thank you soo much for this wonderful rom <3
You are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Info:
  • Nexus 5 - 32GB
  • 2GB /system Partition
  • PixelExperience-10.0 2019-12-25
  • OpenGapps Nano
  • Magisk 20.2 (not updated yet)
Report:
  • Rom Boots fine
  • Both Camera-apps are working (ROM-shipped&gapps) (2.0.002&2.02.033)
  • Root is working as it should
  • Magisk-Modules are working fine. (tested Audio Modification Library, Youtube vanced)

Some Questions:
  1. Anyone knows if the shipped kernel supports DT2W?
  2. Is there any way (magisk-module, a zip to flash, edit system-files) to enable Volume-Button-Wake?
  3. Is this rom's selinux set to permissive? If not would it make the rom slower if I set it to permissive?
Cheers

3- Permissive for now and No.

Special Thanks to @z3DD3r for working on Android 10 Trees and Patches for our beloved device :good:

Super coool!!! Thanks for taking your time to answer me!!!

After further testing, I can't find any issues. (Im without a SIM, so no mobile-network-testing here).
Everything runs pretty smooth. :good:

only one thing:
@M Asad Khilji
Can you/me somehow activate the "Draw over other app"-function?
On request it says:
Not available. Disabled because it makes your phone slower.

I need it for automations :/
