Anyone else jump on the DP2 release of Android P this week?  Was very surprised to see the expanded device selection that the preview is available for.

https://developer.android.com/preview/devices/

  • OG Pixel / XL
  • Pixel 2 /XL
  • Essential
  • Nokia 7Plus
  • Oppo R15 Pro
  • Xperia XZ2
  • Vivo X21 / UD

Issues I've found on my Pixel 2 XL so far...

  • MS Apps don't work with InTune MDM configured
  • Gestures are flakey
  • Radio Switching between towers/data flow is odd

Using Gestures and opening the list of running apps, causes running apps to show in the background of the lock screen or an app running.

Is anyone else running the Android P beta?  On Beta 4 now and i can't get the hidden menu via *#*#3282#*#* to edit anything.  When I input the MSL code, it just goes to a black screen and hangs.eventually the app times out and I get offered to kill it.

If you are just viewing the settings, it works fine, only editing causes issues.  Perhaps an issue with newer security in Android P?

Wondering if any of the other Android P beta devices have the same issue.

Another issue is that I get no Voicemail notification icon when I have a voicemail.  I forget to check when I have a missed call and i end up with six or seven VMEs for weeks ago.

Can't find anything on this issue, anyone else experiencing this?

Got the VM indicator figured out, somehow my account switch for the Voice Mail indicator got switched to off.  A Sprint Rep was able to flip it for me and all is good now.

On DP5 now, none of the Hidden Menus are working yet, PRL and Network updates hang.

  • jefbal99 changed the title to Android Pie
Pie is officially released, still hidden menus hang...
Report it on the bug tracker? I've read there might be magisk hide issues so I'm holding off on the upgrade for now

I HATE the new volume slider. Why the hell would they default it to control media volume? It is way too difficult now to control ringer volume.
 

A lot of the settings take extra taps now.  I do not like it.  It is visibly appealing but not as functional as Oreo.  It seems like they made changes just to say it is something new.

Agree! Love the way it looks but really hate how it works!

They seem to have changed Bluetooth so that it can't ring on the phone and Bluetooth at the same time. I have an add on Bluetooth in my car and now I don't hear any rings or texts unless I switch to that input. Stupid. Unless there's a setting I'm missing.

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
