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 (check this needful guide on how to unbrick your pixel device)
* Before you are ready to flash this custom ROM, you have to install the latest factory image in order to have the correct bootloader, radio, vendor and so on in place.
* Bootloader unlocked
* You have created a backup of your ROM & data
* TWRP 3.2.3-1 is permanently installed or booted via fastboot (explained here);


First time installing Pixel Dust ROM, or coming from another ROM:

As mentioned above, you are required to flash stock ROM 10.0 before installing this custom ROM.

New users should first flash the stock ROM:
  1. Follow these instructions: https://developers.google.com/android/images#sailfish

Clean flash PixelDust ROM:
  1. Reboot to bootloader
  2. Boot into TWRP recovery via fastboot (This is required becaused TWRP is not yet updated for Android 10)
    Code:
    fastboot boot twrp-3.2.3-1-sailfish.img
  3. Advanced Wipe (system, dalvik, data)
  4. Flash ROM
  5. Flash twrp-pixel-installer.zip (it is required in order to flash Magisk later)
  6. Reboot System (Ignore the message: No OS installed)
    Do not flash a vendor.img (Pixel Dust ROM has a custom vendor image included)
    Do not flash any third party GApps (Pixel Dust ROM has Google Apps included)
  7. At the initial boot you need a little patience before you can enjoy the Pixel Dust Goodness!

Experienced users may dirty flash PixelDust ROM:
  1. Use fastboot to boot into TWRP recovery
  2. Advanced Wipe (system, dalvik)
  3. Flash ROM
  4. Flash twrp-pixel-installer.zip
  5. Reboot System and enjoy the Pixel Dust Goodness!

Needa root? Then flash Magisk:
You cannot flash Magisk during the initial install. You must boot into PixelDust ROM at least once!
  1. Reboot to Recovery
  2. Flash Magisk-xxx.zip
  3. Reboot to System


Apply OTA updates:


OTA update process:
  1. Before downloading the OTA update: Make sure TWRP is permanently installed via zip (to both slots)
  2. Download and install the update from "System > System update" screen in Settings
  3. After a bit, it will get stuck at "Finalizing package installation"
  4. Reboot into TWRP, change active slot to inactive and reboot system
  5. Now the system will boot up and finish installing the update

This CAF build is incredibly fast in comparison to previous ones but unfortunately I have a problem. Bluetooth restarts (bluetooth on>bluetooth off>bluetooth on) just right after my wireless bluetooth headphones were connected for about 2-3 seconds. Process com.android.bluetooth crash window appears after second attempt of my headphones to connect. So it keeps restarting bluetooth on, off, on and crash many times till I turn off my headphones. I dirtyflashed this ROM with flashing the latest Factory Image (August) up to the pixeldust. I would be pleased if someone could test wireless bluetooth stuff and reply here. Thanks.

BT is not broken in general. I guess the current build has an issue in specific scenarios.

Where did you get a build for axon7?

I wiped Data today. Bluetooth working perfectly fine now!

UPD: But this is not the way how I would like to solve this. I restored back my Data (from release nine) and deleted only settings of the user via TWRP file manager. The file was data>system>users>0>settings_global.xml and settings_system.xml

Seems that the old feature from previous builds battery percentage of wireless headphones in tray that I used before caused the crash of bluetooth.

UPD2: So if you have problems with Bluetooth after durtyflash from PD AOSP but to save your Data (only Apps) you want to delete better the whole folder "users" in data/system/ in order to start like from the scratch as a User (it will wipe only system settings). After this you just need to clean storage for Facebook and Instagram as they don't want to work after User being changed.

Now, it's pretty clear to me what happened. Restoring data from release nine is the root cause of your trouble. PD (AOSP based) release nine is a totally different ROM. This one here has been started from scratch and based off of CAF.

In other words: Coming from PD AOSP requires a clean flash. 🙈
