1. yeah trebuchet is only there as a stub for recent apps
2. I just disabled it. It's not supported past android 10.
3. I mean. Old device, old battery, more features, newer android version. Makes sense.

Anyone know if the PixelExperience Android 11 based version for Marlin has functional VoLTE ?
If theirs works, maybe ask them how they did it ?
(I recently ordered an extra SIM to test this in my spare Marlin - already loaded with PixelExperience, but won't get it for a few more days).
My daily driver has been running great on the official LineageOS based on android 10 for a year, but I don't want to mess with that.

Just tested new Verizon SIM and CDMA -1xRTT only, NOT LTE for the Mobile Voice Network Type. bummed ! but not unexpected, after reading others comments.

None of the Android 11 ROMs have a working IMS/VoLTE module. This includes Pixel Experience and Pixel Dust.

Yes that I know. But if moto g6 can support fully android 11 why cant pixel xl? I know specs are different and moto g6 is not a/b partition.

Ya im bummed after hearing this to since I am on verizon. But ya I expected it to not work as what been said over and over. But maybe one day. I guess lineage os 17.1 ftw.
Collective response to all of these:

IMS (VoLTE/VoWIFI) doesn't work on 11 ROMs for sailfish/marlin - not PE, not Lineage, not anything at the moment.

Legacy devices have IMS die at some point usually - ours just broke sooner than expected.

I hope to fix it someday, but given it's an old proprietary implementation with no documentation, the chances are low.

G6 has more modern and compatible blobs to kang, and it _just to happens_ to work.

Tl;DR: Chances IMS will every work for marlin above Android 10 are really, really low.

OTA to the latest ver.0909, still works very well, so far so good, and from my experience, the total performance got a noticeable improvement, especially for touch and scroll and battery saving.

But i finally went back to 0817, since the lack of trebuchet launcher, i like Google, i like pixel phones, but i really really don't like the pixel launcher, the unremovable search bar the at a glance widget...etc

for me, trebuchet launcher is a must be for all my hangdroid mobile phones no matter it's lineage OS or not. trebuchet is half the spirit of lineage OS.

thanks @npjohnson again for bringing Android 11 to my loved marlin, wish all the best be with you.

    Thanks for your response. But what exactly is the issue? I couldn't understand.
    Fixed the issue - next build it will work.

    Will this be going official?
    Read the OP.

    It talks about this specifically.

    Google Pixel XL

    Code:
    - Your warranty is now void.
    - You have been warned.
    - Use at your own risk.

    Introduction:
    This is my unofficial Lineage OS 18.1 thread for the Google Pixel XL.

    Downloads:
    Please follow the install instructions in your device's Wiki page linked below exactly, and make sure your device's firmware matches the required firmware listed.
    If you don't follow these instructions, or use 3rd party add-ons (like Magisk) please don't expect support here.

    Known Bugs:
    • IMS (VoLTE/ViLTE/WFC) is nonfunctional due to incompatibilities with older proprietary binaries
    • Sound Trigger (Screen-off "Hey Google" detection) is nonfunctional due to incompatibilities with older proprietary binaries.
    • Find any? Report them on this thread, and make sure to include logcat/dmesg as applicable.
    Notes:
    • GApps are baked in, alongside other Pixel goodies - No, I will not be building without GApps included for this device. These builds are built, packaged, and signed by me, and not affiliated with LineageOS whatsoever. OTA is provided the same way officials would have them.
    • This will likely never be official. At minimum, IMS would need to be fixed, and I haven't cracked it (yet). If you can get IMS working, please contact me, and we can work together!
    • Firmware is shipped in the ROM package for this device, so no need to worry about updating it on your own!

    Just came by to say THANKS for your work. It is very stable and I've gone about 2 or 3 OTAs so far with zero issues.

    where the download? I dont see it.
    Click the `marlin` link and it's in the wiki page contained in the instructions you should follow ;p
    Does this rom show device as a pixel 1? Need it for Google photos unlimited back up at original quality, if it shows a later pixel model it will affect backup
    Of course! Like all ROMs should - backup works fine on LineageOS.
    What Android Security Patch level does the latest version have?
    I build every month within 5 days of the ASB usually. June as of typing this.
