Things i have notices so far:
- ROM is only on Bootslot B and is Set as Default
- Bootslot A still Runs Stock
(Fixed that by Manually flashing everything to A with Fastboot (Extracted Payload Bin)
- Display/Framework Overlay isnt fitting right
(Some Apps have cutted Statusbar)
- Batterylife isn't that great compared to Stock/GSIs
- Recovery is almost useless for any flashing since it only Supports Metadata based Installers

Wish there would bei TWRP for Our Devices. Think that would Change a Lot for US... Eg fixing the ROM Installer for A/B and releasing Patches from My Side. Stock ROMs would also bei possible...

Thanks anyways for the great AOSP ROM! Havent found any big Bugs yet 🤎
I installed this rom including stock cam everything working fine but SD card not found I tried everything formating sd card fix still no solution.
Please you have any idea to fix it help me
Thnx in advance
