    PixelDust ROM is an Android 11 ROM especially built for the current Google Pixel devices and aimed for stability at its core with themes and customizations.

    Our philosophy is to offer all the features known from the Google Pixel Factory Images paired with a useful selection of the coolest custom ROM features.

    Our project is based off directly from AOSP. We attach great importance to aesthetics, themeability and personalization. For this we have integrated a great selection of space wallpapers and a special theme app (many thanks to Dirty Unicorns for their code base) in the settings of the Android OS.

    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!

    Attention

    This ROM uses the pixel identity of the pixel 5 in order to pass the safety net checks. Therefore, you need to disable the "auto updates" for the Google camera so that Playstore updates do not replace the camera app to the latest version which is incompatible with Pixel 1 (it will crash after the update).

    Battery life?
    To improve battery life, please switch off Always On Display (AoD).

    Hey man, just clean flashed and everything is humming along nicely. 1 thing I noticed and 1 request/suggestion. I restored from cloud without issue, but when I went to "Backup & Reset" in Settings, it had Backup off by default.

    The "request" would be Lockscreen Torch. Ultimately it's your choice of course, just something that I can't believe hasn't been implemented in Stock. Super handy.

    Thanks for the Sailfish build!

    So no gapps needed ? Is this similar to uberstock as I used that before and I liked it. Also is the ROMs between sailfish and Marlin safe to flash interchangeable? There's no difference?
    Gapps are included. The ROM is basically an uberstock + a selection of useful features.

    I am not exactly sure what you are asking with "Also is the ROMs between sailfish and Marlin safe to flash interchangeable? There's no difference?"

    In the sailfish build there are definitely a few different device specific drivers present. So, you cannot flash the marlin build to your sailfish device and vice-versa. But when we are talking about the ROM itself, it has identical features.

    Great thank you for taking the time to build this I'm a fan of uberstock but the maker has not updated in awhile so I'm happy to see this available. I was asking about the features and I think I may have phrased wrong, but you provided good info :highfive:
