PixelDust ROM is an Android 10 ROM especially 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 PixelDust 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.
The PixelDust 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!!! 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:

Installation guide

* You are familiar with helping yourself out of awkward situations. You won't defame or complain at the developer of this ROM for your misfortunes.
* You are familiar with using fastboot
* Bootloader unlocked
* You have created a backup of your ROM & data

First time installing PixelDust ROM, or coming from another ROM:
  • Grab our recovery from the links section and install it.
    Through TWRP Recovery:
    Install Zip > Install Image > Choose ‘recovery.img‘ > Select partition ‘Recovery’ > Swipe to confirm flash
    Through Fastboot:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  • Install the ROM and then wipe your internal data partition.
    Through TWRP Recovery:
    Wipe > Format data
    Through Fastboot:
    fastboot -w
  • Reboot into system and wait until the process finishes, it could take a little bit. After the installation is done, I suggest waiting before using the phone because it usually goes into thermal throttling after installing a ROM.

Dirty flashing PixelDust ROM:
  • Install the ROM
    Through TWRP Recovery:
    Install Zip > Swipe to confirm flash
  • Reboot into system and wait until the process finishes.


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.

Do I need to wipe and format my data everytime I need update?
  • No. You do not need to wipe your data in order to install an update. You can flash the update over your existing data. Kindly follow the Dirty Flashing instructions found in the Install guide section for further guidance.

Can I root my device?
  • Yes. I suggest rooting your device with the use of Magisk. Follow the instructions provided from the thread in order to successfully root your device.

I've faced an issue while using the ROM, how may I describe the issue in order for you to fix it?
  • If a bug or an issue is found during the usage of PixelDust-X, I suggest that the issue is described in a well and detailed manner, whilst providing a logcat of the occuring issue.
  • You may obtain the logcat of the issue by following these instrcutions:
  • Open Settings
  • Enter in About Phone
  • Find and tap the Build Number for 5 times
  • Exit About Phone and enter System
  • Toggle the Advanced section by tapping the downwards arrow
  • Enter Developer Options
  • Scroll down to find Android debugging
  • Activate the setting
  • Plug your device to your computer via a USB cable
  • Download the latest version of platform-tools for your PC
  • Extract the folder
  • Open cmd or terminal in the platform-tools directory
  • Type adb devices in the cmd/terminal
  • Allow the device to access your phone via a prompt on your phone
  • Type and send adb logcat > nameofissue.txt on your terminal
  • Include the text file to your post
  • Notice: Logcats must be taken only if you are running the ROM as intended. If a custom kernel is installed, kindly note the occurence, or else I will not consider it to be a ROM issue.

Can I flash Google Apps with this ROM?
  • No. It is not suggested that you flash GApps alonside this ROM, as they are already included inside the ROM itself.

Can I flash a custom kernel with this ROM?
  • Yes, you may. However I am not responsible for any issues related with the custom kernel.

My device suffers from the BLOD issue. What can I do to flash this ROM?
  • Do not fret. In the OP post, I have included a TWRP version for 4 core users alongside the BLOD patch by Osmosis in order to boot the ROM using only 4 cores.

@PixelBoot Thanks for the efforts you are putting in.
One question, why not maintain CAF builds only?

The definitive version?
Sorry for my ignorance, but does this mean that this version supersedes your other PixelDust ROM?

I have installed this rom on both of my 6P phones. I can also confirm that the camera is not loading on both of them. I installed opencamera and it works fine.
