Again, i have freezing issue. Phone just wouldn't respond and it need to forced reboot with power button. Everytime it needs to be done 2-3 time. It's almost everyday and kept getting more frequent. MatLog wouldn't load for me and I can't get my logs. Anybody faced this?

hi guy's need big help plssss got this error FAILED (remote: Failed to write to partition Not Found) when i flash boot.img , plss thankssss
The command is:
fastboot flash boot boot.img

Have you flashed stock ROM on both slots?

If that doesn't work, try to update to the latest android platform tools. Which operating system do you run on your PC, Windows?

    No. I'm really happy someone is replying. I'll try to remove the modules and see how it goes.
    Not sure if it will help you or not, but the systemless hosts module and adaway was what was causing my unresponsiveness. I disabled them and havent had an issue.
    I have been having random crash and device unresponsiveness. I am forced to force reboot using hardware button and it always take me multiple try to get it working. Finally able to pull logs from ADB. Can some genius point me out on what's wrong?
    I am having the same issue. It happens atleast once a day. When I launch an app the phone goes totally unresponsive until I hard power cycle it.
    Please don't get me wrong. I am trying to help you, guide you. But I really don't understand what people do with their phone to end up like this. I've been using this ROM as a daily driver for half a year. We are continuously improving it. We had a long beta testing period to check that everything was completely stable. And now a handful of people are calling in with weird stuff after installing some magisk modules. Very likely these modules crash your system. Please take logs and send them to the author of the modules.

    Same here. Disabled both and kept the V4A. I figured it out but don't post it here. Seems likes it's overloading the network and firebase connection. Making our poor pixel 3 with punny 4GB of ram crash itself.
    Interestingly enough, I have since re-enabled the systemless hosts module. and let it run for awhile without issues. Just this morning, I re-applied adaway to the hosts file. So far so good.
    What??? Before this, i did turn on and off host block in AdAway. But it doesn't really make a difference. Turn out it will only work if you boot up with AdAway already turned off. When it started to run for a while, turning off AdAway don't do much unless you turned it off, reboot and use your phone without the AdAway.

    With AdAway off, i noticed the phone has less lags. It works well for 1.5 days before hanging up. Turned off the magisk systemless host and it's running clean sp far. Rebooting no longer means a gamble wether it will work or i have to hard pressed reboot with keys.

    Before this AdAway trick, the only method to get my phone working is getting it into aeroplane mode. So this problem does come from network. I wonder what caused it.
    I would propose that you check your host sources. For AdAway, there is no need to have like 10 different sources added to the local host file. Beside this, you could replace AdAway by using Androids "private DNS" option (Settings - Network - Advanced - Private DNS). There are numerous DNS servers out there which include adblocking on DNS base (AdGuard for example).

    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!
