My installation steps:

0. Revert your system repartition size from 1.5GB to stock 1GB (if you are using hh_clamor_repartition.zip)
1. Flash: TWRP twrp-3.3.1-2.0GB-HH.zip (fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.3.1-2.0GB-HH.img)
2. Resize system partition to 2GB in TWRP: hh_repartition+to+2go.zip
3. Flash: PixelExperience_Experimental_hammerhead-10.0-20191225-0720-UNOFFICIAL.zip
4. Flash: Magisk-v20.4-b39f4075(20302)
5. Flash: open_gapps-arm-10.0-nano-20200121-TEST.zip (Pixel Launcher 10 works)
6. Create a directory GoogleBoard\GBoard.apk with GBoard apk inside) and move it in TWRP to \System\Apps\
7. Boot
8. Sign in to your Google account and restore your backup or install other Google apps (Chrome, Maps etc)

What doesn't work....

1. SafetyNet
2. Google Fit app
3. Google Wallpaper 10 beta (Styles & Wallpapers) but Google Wallpapers 9-5526574 beta works
4. Pixel Launcher (Notification dots) - "This feature is not available on this device"

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

Installed the experimental 10 build and things seem to be working well. Any idea why Wear OS says it is incompatible with this build? Can't pair my smartwatch without it!

I've been using the rom for almost a month now, I've installed it last month, now it is starting to show some bugs, my wifi can't turn on and my settings is blank and makes the entire phone lag

I am not rooted, just installed the rom alone. Any fix for this?

Been using the Android 10 variant since the day it came out.

I don't remember any other previous ROM that was so fluid, stable and fast like this ROM. Haven't encountered something broken or that partially works. In particular, always had in the past ROMs with Bluetooth garbled sound or not working at all, gps problems etc.

Not on this ROM. Chapeau!

There are some drawbacks, though, probably GO-related. Many applications cannot be installed. For example, Netflix. Maybe there are GO variants for all these (e.g. Google maps GO)

Hello.

I'm quite happy with this rom, I've been using it for more than 2 weeks now, and I've found some tricks like how to make safety net work...

But I have a big problem, the phone when you least expect it, gets stuck, or asks me for the card's PIN... these 2 errors happen a lot more often than I would expect from a rom that is talked about so well...

I wanted to ask if anyone on the forum has a similar problem and has found a way to solve it?

Thank you all.

Sorry, i can't. It's up to PE Team. Hopefully soon.

Okay, I understand... and isn't there some place you can keep an eye on the progress the EP team is making on that version?

On the other hand, could you tell me this that I put a few messages back because it might be?

Sincerely it is giving me many problems, but I do not want to download Android 9 version and that in 2 days the new version of the rom comes out by chance, because as I said before, I do not have internet at home and it is difficult for me to be downloading versions and applications

Thanks for the ROM and any help you can give me.

The ROM is great, everything was running smooth, bluetooth audio great, fluid (as always with this ROM).
It's been 3 weeks now, and the last week has been the worst. Basically I take out this phone when I go to school, and i use the phone just to play music and calls, and literally, at a little swipe, the phone freezes for 2 minutes and the bluetooth force closes all the time, and in the worst cases, the phone just dies for 5 minutes till I restart it. And I'm wondering why, because i did the clean flash, made the repartition to 2 GB, and in my phone I just have my Spotify music downloaded and 4 apps, that lefts 4GB of free space.

I'm very disappointed that at first, everything was going nice, and just the time passed, and all I have is a half-usable phone. Definitely looking forward to keep this phone alive, but while that happens, I'll stay safe at Android 9.
