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

Pre-requisites:
* 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
* Before you are ready to flash this custom ROM, you have to install the latest factory image

First time installing PixelDust ROM, or coming from another ROM:

YOU MUST HAVE RECENT FACTORY IMAGE FLASHED TO BOTH SLOTS BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME INSTALLING ROM.

  1. Follow these instructions: https://developers.google.com/android/images#crosshatch

2. Flashing PixelDust ROM:
  1. Download the ROM and boot image
  2. Flash the boot image (this allows stock recovery to flash unsigned rom zip since we dont have TWRP)
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  3. Wipe userdata (required for first PixelDust/Android 10 install)
    Code:
    fastboot erase userdata
  4. Reboot into fastbootd
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
  5. Use volume keys and power button to select "Enter Recovery"
  6. Select "Apply Update from ADB"
  7. Sideload the ROM zip

Thank you for your work! Great rom, but the back gesture usually don't do anything. And when I use icon packs their shape on the main screen is always the same and can't be change.

1. Back gesture
Pls check whether you have enabled the option "Accidental touch". This could interfere with the back gesture.

2. Icon pack
It is likely that the icon pack has a problem or isn't compatible with Android 10. I have installed this pack and it works like a charm: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....flatconsblack
