No noticeable improvement. The phone is basically in a 24/7 low signal situation no matter which firmware you're on unless you're staring at a tower.
Is root working fine now? I recall seeing others state that there are issues with root on all A14 beta builds. On some boots, there is a chance that root is not detected. On other boots, it might be detected and work correctly. Is this the case for you?
I haven't faced any issues. I'm rooted with Magisk 26.1 with universal safetynet fix , AOSP mods, adaway etc. and everything is working well. I did reboot 3-4 times and root is detected every single time. All my banking apps, Google pay and wallet works seamlessly.
Awesome! Thank you for the quick response! I suppose that I can try out Android 14 after all at this point since root now seems to be working without issue!I haven't faced any issues.

Just to add again, I did perform a factory reset. I hope that you don't face any issues If you come from A13 with dirty flash.
Gotcha. Thanks for the tip! I always tend to do full device wipes between manual updates as I have noticed the issues that other users have run into after continuously dirty flashing. It's usually better for me to play it safe =P.
I guess the HerE We GO app isn't optimized yet for A14, hence the crashes. Perhaps a future update will fix it. In the mean time, you can use Waze, Sygic or GMaps
That's expected, or normal.
If one would chose to do step 10 and beyond, I'd change step 10 to this just to be double sure (I'm paranoid)
Boot to system to make sure it boots properly, and let the system do it's thing (in case there is an issue, you want your previous slot intact), then reboot back to bootloader and continue to step 11, actually there is no need to switch slots as in step 10, as sideloading will do that, otherwise you're rewriting to the same slot that you had already written to.One last thing, step 3, you can extract init_boot from ota, it's in the payload.bin, this way you don't have to download both ota and factory.
Funny enough, I had problems without root....I tested it just for fun and yeah, it wouldn't allow me to sign on or add cards.
In addition to the great advice of @roirraW "edor" ehT , you could also go over to the Pixel Flasher thread and submit a support zip so he can look at it and figure out what went wrong. If things have changed with A14 QPR1 Beta 1, I'm sure he would appreciate the heads up as well.i was on 5.3 and have had no issues with flashing ota's in the past but with this qr1 beta for whatever reason with pixel flasher the software doesn't change. itll flash and say it is complete but the rom doesnt seem to be changing. Any ideas or help is appreciated
It's working fine for me. There's a couple of little nags.
Welcome to the Android 14 Developer Preview! This first release is for developers only, to help with early development, testing, and feedback. Android 14 Developer Preview 1 is an early baseline build that's still in active development, so the Android system and apps running on it might not always work as expected.
