Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.
So, head over the Telegram group and feel free to lurk.

Any photos of it in action? Demonstrations of key features? I don't have telegram but I guess I'll finally make one to peruse the features. Good work on your ROM, I'll give it a whirl!
 
Right on! I'm definitely testing this out ASAP!!
so far, so good! I did have a FC crash on the initial setup but it self recovered and worked fine! I am building it out but it looks really good so far! out of the box passing SafetyNet is nice, I was quite surprised to see Netflix show up BEFORE I tweaked anything (MAGISK/ROOT/ETC), it just worked (which is fantastic)!

Anyone else having WiFi drop using 5G or is it my openwrr? Normal works fine but when I switch to 5G using my openwrt router it drops but no other android 12 happens. Normal is fine and originally setting up my device was fine, it wasn't until a system app updated that it's started dropping so I'm testing a few things to see if I rule it down.

EDIT, NM, it was the adaptive connectivity, I turned that off and bingo. No more issues so that was my own doing but NOT a ROM issue!

Is this ROM only for Coral? Or it can be installed on Flame too? Thank you!
I am not the dev on this, but I did search the website download and couldnt find anything for the PX4 - flame (but you could check with the dev):

This ROM is super smooth. Loving every bit of it and a huge improvement on stock android 12. Keep up the excellent work!
I have a question though since I've been out of the game for a while now, is root able to be installed on android 12 and still pass safetynet?
Are the steps for this ROM to be rooted to install the magisk app, patch the boot.img of this ROM, and install magiskhide afterward, or am I missing something? Thanks in advance

Just patch the boot.img with magisk and then fastboot flash that. The rest idk because I don't root. But it guess you need the universal safetynetfix if that's still a thing?

Question:
Is this ROM working with Pixel 4XLs face unlock? What about Soli features and so on?
I am tempted to try this one out, as I am having terrible issues with the stock ROM.

    How do you stop current launcher?
    System/apps/... (top right corner) show system and find the default launcher, "force stop". BUT before you stop the default, try with the 3rd party first, just stop it (FC) then open it from the same app info page (on your launcher installed) and test. If not, also restart default, then test, it will work.
