PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the sudden random demise of my Nexus 6P (and the fact that the Pixel XL is really neat), all development of this ROM has been discontinued. It's kinda hard to make a 6P ROM without a 6P, you know?
There has been interest expressed by some members of the forum in acquiring another 6P for me to continue working on this, and for me to put a donate link in the OP.

If you'd like to contribute to this effort, Paypal donations are accepted at the following address: [email protected]

I apologize for this inconvenience, but I obviously can't control when my phone will randomly decide to die, and I can't justify spending $300+ of my own cash to buy another primary device, when the last one just decided to crap out without warning. So, it just doesn't make sense to buy another as my daily driver.

Digitalhigh 6P ROM
"I see everybody lost their minds for this election..."



What it is:
This is a stock-based ROM, with extensive changes and modifications to re-create the Pixel experience.

Despite the cool team name, this ROM is really just maintained by me, Digitalhigh. All updates, mods, and anything else (unless otherwise specified) was put here by yours truly. While I will not plaster this thread with links like other devs, there is a donate link under my avatar - any and all donations are appreciated, but not required.


Features:
Code:
100% Custom Aroma Installer
All apps 100% up-to-date at the time of release
Retain ROM Odex for performance
Based on latest Official Google NMF26F release
DM-Verity disabled
Data encryption optional
Pixel Launcher.
Pixel Wallpaper Applications (Picker, Live Earth, Live Data, etc.)
Pixel Wallpapers set as default picker in settings.
Pixel Colors system-wide in framework-res, settings, systemUI, documentsUI.
Pixel animation in navbar.

UNLIMITED GOOGLE PHOTOS STORAGE.
SystemUI has rounded icons for everything.
CameraNX with ZSL feature.
Night Light feature enabled.
Navbar tuner enabled.
All booleans, arrays, from SystemUI/Framework-res/Settings in Pixel resources copied over.


In short - if it can be taken from the Pixel devices, it will be here.


Optional Features:
Magisk Manager
Magisk-Root (Android pay should work)
Amaze File Manager
Adfree Android Adblocker
Substratum Layers Manager
Black Boot Animation (DH Custom, includes boot sounds)

Rambling:

While I haven't released anything publicly in a while, I have actually been working on this project privately since the first release of 7.1.1 several months ago. Now that there is an official, stable build, I figured it was time to stick the finger to Google and turn on all the features we should have by default.

Will this ROM have any mods for the enterprise wifi issue that a lot of people including myself is running into where the businesses' wifi cant connect to the new android DHCP client?

Rom looks to have a lot of goodies tho....will give it a try tonight.

As for requests.....what about transparent status and nav bar, pie control, call record?

I was not aware of that issue, but I'd be happy to research and implement a fix. Is there any documentation related to this I can look at?

There's an option in Dev options to use legacy lollipop DHCP isn't there?

    Anyone knows if this ROM will receive future updates? Last time OP was this silent he/she went away for like 6 months haha.

    I am indeed alive, and it will.

    After I put out the N release, I had a series of lengthy discussions with @topjohnwu, the developer of Magisk. I offered to help him with the Magisk Manager application, and so I have been diligently coding away since then. I have a few more things to polish up on that so he can release it, along with a new version of Magisk, and the goodies I'm working on there are enough to make me want to wait to update this ROM until then. Once that's ready, many other things about the installer will be changed up as well.

    So, I'm here, not on vacation, and actively doing Android stuff. I just need to finish one of the pieces for the ROM first. ;)

    Holy balls dude, you guys are really getting your panties up in a bunch over here.

    Let me make this clear...

    This is a HOBBY. I have full time job, two kids, a wife, and a basement I'm in the middle of remodeling. I've also been contributing to the development of a web application called "Muximux", and writing my own Google Assistant Voice Agent to interface with Plex, couchpotato, sonarr, and radar...amongst other things.

    I will do releases when I feel my phone needs them. I will fix issues that bug me. I will add things that I want to add. Nobody is required to use my releases, nor am I required to spend my days fixing every nitpick or gripe that comes out.

    If you want the latest security patches...install them. If you want these features...figure out how to port them yourself.

    I have downloaded the 7.1.2 update and started looking at it, as I'm sick of my battery dying, and I realize it's been a couple of months since I've done ROM work.

    As such, I will probably have an update available in a few days. I hope to get fingerprint sensor stuff working, as I'm guessing the drivers are now there but it's just not enabled.


    But please everyone, remember...it's just me over here, and I've only got so many hours in a day. I'm doing this for my own entertainment. If the level of support or updates are not to your liking, then I implore you to flash something else.
