PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

"... no custom recovery supports encryption on Android12, i.e. you won't be able to decrypt your data"

This has not been true for about 3 months. OrangeFox Recovery decrypts Android 12 and Android 13 ROMs without any problem - including this ROM.
Oh Yhea my bad, i missed that (Templates xD)

Anyone can tell me how I upgrade the firmware or find out which version it's on ? Currently my phone is not rooted.
My F3 now runs the official PixelOS 12.1 by cristianvaz which is no longer maintained. I like to upgrade to this version and know I must do a clean install.

Haven't installed yet but thanks for taking on this project. 👍

Oh yeah, actually, would it be possible to add push power button to activate fingerprint sensor, like the option on miui? Just a thought. If not no worries.

Thanks Dev for this very nice ROM. Is there any option for OTA update or should we flash via sideload/TWRP ?

Thank you so much for these builds! I just switched to this, I really hope you get official. Quick question, I haven't been able to find any of the "plus" features mentioned in your link, like hide gesture bar, face unlock, double tap status bar to sleep...am I looking in the wrong places? I appreciate the help!

    Does it mean, If I use OrangeFox recovery then I can able to flash this ROM? If yes, am I able to receive OTA update?
    Hi,
    I don`t use this rom, but if you use TEMPORARY Recovery this should leave the original recovery untouched, you could try this,

    Reboot the F3 into Fastboot mode using a PC,
    Download, unzip and run RUN_TWRP-Orange Fox FIXED.bat from the menu,
    choose 2) Install OrangeFox Recovery.

    The original Recovery is still intact to enable OTG updates on the Evo-X Rom.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello all,

    right now I got CrDroid installed. It is a great ROM with a lot of functions. When I started with Custom Roms on a OnePlus One I had Lineageos installed and I remember I could update the ROM via OTA and I really liked that feature.
    Is this possible with PixelOS?

    What I also like about my current ROM CrDroid ist the possibility of unlimited Google Photos. Is this feature available with this ROM?

    Thank you all for your help!
    Hey, about OTA i will need to get official to have OTA support. Which i'm trying to get.


    Yes, Pixel Os has unlimited Google Photos too

    You know, i'll write my own instructions. Since the Installation instructions aren't really that documented (as pixel experiences ones, for example) this is how i did it:

    Make sure the bootloader is unlocked!

    Installation:

    1. I started with clean installing the latest MIUI. Here are the instructions to do that:
    1a. Download Mi Flash Tool from
    here.
    1b. Install the drivers. Can be done from Mi Flash Tool or Mi Unlock Tool.
    1c. Download the latest MIUI ROM from here
    (pick the latest one for your country that has a fastboot option, for example:
    POCO F3 EEA Stable Fastboot V13.0.9.0.SKHEUXM)
    1d. Download the latest firmware from
    here
    (again, pick the latest one for your country.)
    1e. Enter Fastboot mode, turn off your F3 and hold the volume down with the power button, once you see the poco logo, release the power button and when the fastboot logo appears, release the volume down button.
    1f. Open Mi Flash Tool (Warning! It may crash while installing the drivers! To fix this, create a folder named "log" in the directory you launched the Flash tool.)
    1g. Select the MIUI ROM folder, (extracted, it goes like this -> tar.gz -> tar -> folder, recommend using 7zip/winrar!)
    1h. Select flash-all.bat, DO NOT select flash-all-lock, that will lock your bootloader. And flash!
    1i. Complete the MIUI 13 Setup, DO NOT set a pin/fingerprint scanner.
    1j. Enable USB Debugging. And we can finally get to flashing the rom!

    2. Download platform-tools from
    here.
    2a. Extract it and open cmd.
    2b. While in the platform-tools directory, type "adb devices"
    Your device should ask to enable usb debugging on this computer, click yes.
    2c. Type "adb reboot bootloader" check if it detected it by using "fastboot devices" and if yes, we are getting to flashing it!
    2d. Now, download the latest build and recovery from
    here.
    2e. Flash the recovery using "fastboot flash boot <recovery_filename>.img
    (replace the things i type in <> with proper file names)
    2f. Reboot using "fastboot reboot-recovery"
    2g. Bootloop? Doesn't work? Try using orangefox recovery. For that, you have to flash twrp. Here are the instructions:
    1. Download TWRP from
    here. (Select 3.6.1 for proper function!)
    2. Type "fastboot boot <TWRP_xxx>.img"
    3. In TWRP, go to Wipe, and Format Data. Type yes.
    4. Download OrangeFox from
    here.
    5. Type "adb push <OrangeFox_recovery.img> /sdcard
    6. Go to install, and install OrangeFox!
    7.Reboot

    3. Now, the problem is i dont know how the PixelOS Recovery is, soooo, uhhh i dunno.

    4. Meanwhile OrangeFox:

    1. Go to Wipe, and erase:
    Dalvik, Metadata, Data, Internal Storage
    2. Well again. Type "adb push <PixelOS.zip>"
    3. Flash it by clicking on it.
    4. MAKE SURE TO NOTICE WHAT SLOT IT SAYS. A or B.
    5. Flash the firmware. Type "adb push <xiaomi-firmware>.img" and flash it.
    6. After flashing, restart, if the SLOT is A, and it said B, switch to B and reboot. The same for the opposite, if it said A, and it's A, just restart.


    Dirty Flashing is simple tho:
    1.Boot to orangefox
    2.Flash the ROM
    3.Reboot

    Done! This took me so long, ugh why did i do this to myself.
    Also, uh you can flash magisk after the firmware or something i dont use it so i dont know the process :)

    Will try it in the next update, I already switched to another ROM
    You like switching dont you?
    (also, i hope the december update is gonna be good!)
