There is already a Evolution X alpha build of Android 13 for lemonades (works on both lemonadep [OnePlus 9 Pro] and lemonade [OnePlus 9]). With that being said, I do not recommend using it as your daily driver. We are likely not gonna see a relatively stable version of Android 13 for a few weeks or months at least. If you want get the link for the Evolution X Android 13 alpha then you can find it under their SourceForge.

doesn't work, alpha build is for OP9R only and not unified for OP9P

Thanks for confirming, previous builds on Android 12 were unified for our OnePlus 9 Pro. So it is a slightly confusing that they aren't for Android 13 yet. I guess if you give it a little bit, they should push a unified build for Android 13, as the device maintainer for us is actually one of the core dev team members that work the Evolution X source. Another thing that makes it rather likely that we will be getting it soon is that they are already starting to release Android 13 builds on certain devices like the K20 Pro/Mi 9T, albeit they aren't stable which is expected for such a new version.

yes, no need to be in such a hurry either, I bet Lineage will try an a13 version soon too, but unlikely to be stable for use soon, we are still polishing the a12 with our latest firmware

If the past is any indication, I don't think we'll see anything related to Lineage 20 show up in the LOS Gerrit until later this year or early next year. They're always a bit slower out of the gate with new Android releases, but that's usually to their advantage, as their initial releases are usually much more stable. Any Android 13 ROMs that come out now can definitely be categorized as "bleeding edge," and if you rely on your phone as a daily driver... well, I wouldn't trust them right now on mine. Best to wait out the initial teething period is my philosophy. :)

Which means that it's likely we'll see the first LineageOS 20 builds some time in January or February 2023. Though, perhaps it won't take quite as much work as it did going from Android 11 to 12, since 13 is more of an iterative update than the substantial one that 11-->12 was. I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

Yeah, I don't know why people are in such a hurry to keep upgrading. For me, a fully rooted phone on A11 or A12 is all I need....
Never saw the need to move beyond OOS 11.2.10.10 and Magisk 23, especially after seeing the reactions to OOS 12. When OOS 13 comes out, I'll wait for a couple of months before deciding if I want it. My phone is not a toy.

How about we work on the stability of custom A12 ROMs first? Remember, the ROMs can sometimes only be as good as their sources they come from.
In my honest opinion A13 has a better chance of being more stable the A12.1 roms as the transition from A11 to A12 was quite the jump but A13 isn't that large of an update and therefore hopefully after proper sources are released it shouldn't be all that bad. I do however think it would be a waste of time to build anything before OOS13 vendor comes out because it'd just be a hassle to rebase that soon

    Whenever you see the first sightings of AOSP A13 then we'll start to see custom roms, after that Lineage will build and then we'll likely see more roms as many use lineage base
