Pixel Dust ROM is an Android 9.x ROM especially built for Google Pixel and Nexus devices.

Hear what other users say (about Pixel Dust ROM]:


The code is based off directly from AOSP. 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, BenzoROM, CarbonROM, crDroid, DirtyUnicorns, LOS, OmniROM and PureNexus, we borrowed a few features and tweaks from. The kernel in this ROM is based on ElementalX by flar2 and compiled with Google android clang toolchain.

The Pixel Dust Crew 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 the other team members and spezi77. Cheers!


BTW, please consider to take a logcat, because you know that:

Disclaimer:
If your device fails to comply with your standards of what you consider functioning, I am not liable. This is provided free of charge and does not come with a warranty. Although, if you provide a log, I can provide some sort of assurance that I will look into your issue.

Thanks! It is 3.2.3-0. Updated the OP. About second point - isn't it possible to fastboot boot twrp in shamu?

Either you install it permanently or boot temporarily via fastboot so that point is correct.
