PixelExperience 11.0 20210207-0205 Official Polaris Beta Build

Linux 4.9.256, new CAF tag, wireguard 1.0.20200124, suspend stats backport, cpufreq change revert, schduler optimizations, Google Play system update fix, graceful shutdown of light deices, ANX portraid mode fix, new vendor and firmware from MIUI Global Stable V12.0.3.0, Renderscript from Pixel 3 XL, memory mode SQLite journal, BT device system ui crash fix, Vodafone AU APN cofnig update, and February security patch

Device Specific Changes:

  • Etude kernel: Op.11 No.2
    • Linux 4.9.256
    • hacked LINUX_VERSION_CODE to maintain compatibility with drivers and modules after the SUBLEVEL goes beyond 8 bits (255 max)
    • merged CAF tag LA.UM.9.3.r1-00700-sdm845.0
    • wireguard 1.0.20200124
    • backported suspend stats sysfs node
    • cpufreq: reverted average capacity calculation fix due to performance regression
    • sched: unified spare capacity calculation
    • sched: prefer a CPU in a more shallow idle state to achieve faster wake-up and higher efficiency
    • DO NOT use a third party kernel without proper support for Pixel thermal hal
  • Created and symlinked a dummy /metadata/apex to fix Google Play system update
    • Google moved the apex sessions directory from /data/apex/sessions to /metadata/apex/sessions
    • we do not have a metadata partition out of the box
    • thus a dummy directory is created to satisfy the requirement
    • Note: there may be multiple Google Play system updates since October 2020, and your phone may need multiple reboots to install them. You may see a “try again” after you press the reboot button for the second time, and that is because Google Play stops reboot caused by system update if the previous reboot was within 15 minutes. It was intended to prevent infinite reboot during a bootloop (and yes it is stupid in this case). Just reboot manually and the update will install fine.
  • Satisfied the graceful shutdown of light devices in light HAL
  • ANX Camera portrait mode now works out of the box (verified on ANX Camera 185R)
    • Note: please install ANX through Magisk. ANX’s installation zip does not support PE/AOSP recovery
  • Updated vendor and firmware from MIUI Global Stable V12.0.3.0
  • Imported RenderScript blobs from Pixel 3 XL
  • Configured SQLite journal to use MEMORY mode
    • about 2x performance increase in SQLite insert/update/delete

Feature Update Highlights:

  • February security patch
  • Fixed a SystemUI crash when connecting to some Bluetooth devices
  • Fixed incorrect default APN configs for Vodafone AU

Gapps are included. Vendor and firmware are included. Dirty flash or incremental updates should be fine if you are on my previous PE 11 build.
