You're a power user. Can the Google Pixel keep up? Rate this thread to express how "healthy" the development scene is for the Google Pixel. A higher rating indicates available root methods, kernels, and custom ROMs.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Now that people have sort of figured out the goofy partitions of the Pixel, things are getting good. The PureNexus ROM is amazing, the few kernels we have are tremendous, and generally I'm content with it for the age of the device (and Nougat).

Its a flagship of Android so it will be used as a standard for development in alot of cases. That alone is worth praise to its longevity. It will likely be supported for years to come.

I wondered the same thing, I just bought a pixel on ebay. Official support is just about over so i'm wondering how things are on the unofficial development.

Unofficial suport is still really good. We have a couple of roms such as LineageOS, Bootleggers, Pixel Dust, Benzo Rom, and some more but these are those posted on XDA and there are probably some outside. Much life left for this device! We still have security updates until October 2019 from Google. So after that we'll be relying on the custom development community for future security updates and future android versions. Since we have treble support there's no problem. Even if devs move away from this device we still could boot treble roms which there are plenty of.
