Pixel Dust 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 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.
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!!! If you like our work, please consider to buy Roger the first beer, and a few more for the other team members and myself. Cheers!


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

My pleasure.

A full wipe is recommended to avoid any bizarre issues.

It is not a clone. I have been using the last three PD builds (really 3 months) and I have found....So Far.... In a bad way, No differences. Active edge has more settings, I think. I see less overnight sleep mode & less app background activity. Matt Log app is a no-go in my personal app loads. So try it!!

Thanks for your feedback, highly appreciated!

I think it's because of the language gap, because English is not my mother tongue.
