    Ok, it finished. I don't like the new almost a single button, cuz it's not, there is still a small back arrow on the left and a larger oval Central button. Not a fan of the look.

    Otherwise it's running just fine. Left my setup and ask my defaults alone, that's nice. Was afraid is have to do a lot of re-configuring.

    Was the battery percentage at the bottom of the lock screen before? Also, if we have the option to use the new single button navigation, how do we get to it?

    Did the color just get better with the update on the 2xl or am I seeing things?

    46.7MB here. I've been running the beta since the first release candidate, I think. I've been enjoying it. No major bugs like when I used the first beta for Nougat on my 6P.

    Looking forward to the stable build & I'm thinking I'm going to sign up for the "Digital Wellbeing" beta as well. App time limits, grayscale mode along with night mode & other features to help me unplug & wind down for the night. Sign up for the Android Digital Wellbeing Beta – Android.com Forms

    I'm pretty impressed, I'm not usually an early adopter, but since I've been so pleased with the non rooted experience with Oreo, and given I'd have to take it fairly soon to keep up with the monthly updates, figured might as well get it done now.

    They've done a really good job. Now if only we could colorize the soft keys, it would be as close to perfect as a non rooted phone can be

    Hey kids, if anyone is using DNS66 and noticed it ain't working, it's a setting change in chrome.

    Go to chrome
    Enter chrome://flags
    Search for dns
    Change the asyncDNS setting to disable

    Found this on the interwebs and it worked

    Ok, this is the first time one of the names I predicted for P ended up being right. Before I saw the peppermint looking splash screen I theought it might be Pie (Are you ready for some pie?). Now to be fair that was back in March and I have since jumped around from pecan pie to peppermint.
