@npjohnson - are their still plans for an offical build for Pixel 3a? (noticed Pixel 2 got an offical build last week and was curious if the older models are actively being worked on, or just from folks like you (unofficial)
Nope. Stuck unofficial - none of us have ideas on how to fix ESIM.I have my fingers crossed for either eSim support on this build or an Official Build (which I believe is waiting on eSim support possibly) I am feverishly watching the build/changelog for eSim related merges. I dislike my Pixel 5, 6 and most recently 7. They are all sitting in a drawer. I find myself always migrating back to the good ole' feel of my 3a. I just bought a Pixel 4 2 days ago, hoping that it would give me that same feel, yet it has the support for Android 13 out of the box. I have used it exactly 1 day and already hate the fact that it has no fingerprint sensor. I thought I could be good with the face unlock, but it has made me hate the phone as well. Just grabbing my 3a last night made me feel right at home. It is hard to really explain I guess. If I didn't really need eSim, I would be 1000% good to go. I really love the current build and everything that goes along with it. I know I could just go back to 12, but I just cannot bring myself to go backward, even for the eSim support. I will say that if Pixel 2 got an Official build, maybe we are close. Time will tell I guess!
Pixel 2 only have Google Fi ESIM, so not critical to shipping.
