Pixel Dust ROM is an Android 9.x ROM which was initially built for Google Pixel and Nexus devices.

We rebased the project to Code Aurora Sources, more commonly known as CAF. CAF ROMs are therefore generally considered to be more optimized for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs than AOSP ROMs (in performance, RAM management, battery, etc.,). We strive to keep the Pixel Dust Experience as close as possible to Android, as Google intended. We add a decent selection of the coolest custom ROM features that would've been missed if they hadn't been included. Thanks to all development teams, e.g. ABC ROM, AICP, AOKP, AOSPA, AOSP Extended, BenzoROM, Bootleggers, CarbonROM, crDroid, DirtyUnicorns, Havoc OS, LOS, MSM-Xtended Project, OmniROM, Potatoes Project and PureNexus, we borrowed a few features and tweaks from. The kernel in this ROM is based on LOS and compiled with Google's android clang toolchain.

The Pixel Dust developers would highly appreciate if you would take a little of your time and leave your valuable feedback, your honest opinion or just say hello. If you should encounter a bug, or some kind of glitch that seems to be abnormal and you are pretty sure that it is related to the ROM (and not related to any special apps or mods you flashed on top), then please give as many details as possible.

Special shoutouts to Roger.T for his amazingly designed wallpapers, logos and the best bootanimation I ever had on my Pixel XL!!! If you like our work, please consider to buy Roger the first beer, and a few more for anyone else in the team. Cheers!

Edit: switched to pixel dust from havoc.
Battery life is good. sot is 9 hours (YouTube, movies,browsing)
No stutters very smooth experience.
Display size looks very cool getting pixel xl feel.
Fingerprint unlock is faster than havoc.
Rebooting speed is ultimate.
ROM optimization for all apps are good.

-Notification/charging LED doesn't work.
-When I chose Second sim for data it automatically switch back to first sim
- double tap to wake screen on lock screen doesn't work
- no option to edit QS rows and column counts
As far I used this ROM these all are the things that I observed. If anything more I I'll update again.
