PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the sudden random demise of my Nexus 6P (and the fact that the Pixel XL is really neat), all development of this ROM has been discontinued. It's kinda hard to make a 6P ROM without a 6P, you know?
There has been interest expressed by some members of the forum in acquiring another 6P for me to continue working on this, and for me to put a donate link in the OP.

If you'd like to contribute to this effort, Paypal donations are accepted at the following address: donate.to.digitalhigh@gmail.com

I apologize for this inconvenience, but I obviously can't control when my phone will randomly decide to die, and I can't justify spending $300+ of my own cash to buy another primary device, when the last one just decided to crap out without warning. So, it just doesn't make sense to buy another as my daily driver.

Team
"LOUD NOISES!"
Presents
Digitalhigh 6P ROM
"I see everybody lost their minds for this election..."



What it is:
This is a stock-based ROM, with extensive changes and modifications to re-create the Pixel experience.

Despite the cool team name, this ROM is really just maintained by me, Digitalhigh. All updates, mods, and anything else (unless otherwise specified) was put here by yours truly. While I will not plaster this thread with links like other devs, there is a donate link under my avatar - any and all donations are appreciated, but not required.


Features:
Code:
100% Custom Aroma Installer
All apps 100% up-to-date at the time of release
Retain ROM Odex for performance
Based on latest Official Google NMF26F release
DM-Verity disabled
Data encryption optional
Pixel Launcher.
Pixel Wallpaper Applications (Picker, Live Earth, Live Data, etc.)
Pixel Wallpapers set as default picker in settings.
Pixel Colors system-wide in framework-res, settings, systemUI, documentsUI.
Pixel animation in navbar.
Google Assistant.
Pixel System sounds.
Pixel Boot animation.
UNLIMITED GOOGLE PHOTOS STORAGE.
SystemUI has rounded icons for everything.
CameraNX with ZSL feature.
Night Light feature enabled.
Navbar tuner enabled.
All booleans, arrays, from SystemUI/Framework-res/Settings in Pixel resources copied over.


In short - if it can be taken from the Pixel devices, it will be here.


Optional Features:
Magisk Manager
Magisk-Root (Android pay should work)
Amaze File Manager
Adfree Android Adblocker
Substratum Layers Manager
Black Boot Animation (DH Custom, includes boot sounds)

Rambling:

While I haven't released anything publicly in a while, I have actually been working on this project privately since the first release of 7.1.1 several months ago. Now that there is an official, stable build, I figured it was time to stick the finger to Google and turn on all the features we should have by default.

Will this ROM have any mods for the enterprise wifi issue that a lot of people including myself is running into where the businesses' wifi cant connect to the new android DHCP client?

As for requests.....what about transparent status and nav bar, pie control, call record?

I was not aware of that issue, but I'd be happy to research and implement a fix. Is there any documentation related to this I can look at?

It is "stock-based", so all the Gapps in the Stock ROM are here. You have the option of which ones to install and remove in Aroma.
