[ROM][Pixel 3][13.0.0_r8] PixelDust Android 13 for blueline [5 October 2022]

Search This thread
strangest thing when flashing this rom.

Followed directions to a T, I flash phones all the time, but I've never had this happen.

On Android 12 newest update, Unlock BL, TWRP boot, install TWRP zip, Reboot, Wipe Data, adb sideload rom, reboot recovery, install GAPPS and Magisk

Reboot and both slots are still on pixel android 12. Tried it like 4 or 5 times

I did also try the pixeldust recovery method, same result. Only way i got a rom to stick to this phone (realized this wasn't the only rom having the issue) was GSI

Maybe try not using TWRP, and follow the second installation method found in the first post of this thread.

I also used their boot.img custom recovery sideload method, didn't work either

GSI ROM was the only rom I got to stick on the device. Pixel dust recovery/lineageOS recovery and TWRP, none of them worked to flash any zip based rom

Did you try flashing the factory image of Android 12 and then did those steps?

Many thanks for this! 👍👍 13 breathed new life into my phone. On vzw, I had nothing but connectivity issues and glitches on 12 but the phone is rock solid now. Force flashed both slots thru Google, side loaded ROM, installed magisk and even got viper running. Really great job!

Installation%20guide.png


Pre-requisites:
* You are familiar with helping yourself out of awkward situations. You won't defame or complain at the developer of this ROM for your misfortunes.
* You are familiar with using fastboot
* Before you are ready to flash this custom ROM, you have to install the latest factory image from October 2021
* Bootloader unlocked
* You have created a backup of your ROM & data

First time installing PixelDust ROM, or coming from another ROM:

YOU MUST HAVE an Android 12 FACTORY IMAGE FLASHED TO BOTH SLOTS BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME INSTALLING ROM.

1. Flashing stock ROM / unlock bootloader (If applicable):
  1. Follow these instructions: https://developers.google.com/android/images#blueline
  2. Boot the stock ROM.
  3. Don't setup any google account, don't add a screen lock. Just go to Settings > System > Developer options. Enable OEM unlocking.
  4. You need to follow this guide to unlock your bootloader.
2. There are now two options for the installation. Either via TWRP or via Sideload (for advanced users).

A. Flashing PixelDust ROM via TWRP:

  1. Download the ROM and both TWRP files (img + zip) (for download links see above).
  2. Boot fastboot mode.
  3. Connect the phone to the Computer with USB cord.
  4. Copy twrp-3.6.2_11-0-blueline.img to the platform-tools folder or folder that has fastboot in it and rename it twrp.img.
  5. Open a Command Prompt.
  6. At the Command Prompt type and press enter.
    Code:
     fastboot boot twrp.img
  7. If requested, swipe to allow modifications.
  8. Tap "Wipe", then tap "Format data" and type yes to continue.
  9. Copy the rom zip and twrp-installer-3.6.2_11-0-blueline.zip to your device.
  10. Tap "Install", select the rom zip, tap "Add more Zips", select the twrp-installer.zip and Swipe Slider to install.
  11. When install is successful tap on "Reboot", then tap on the first list item "System".


B. Flashing PixelDust ROM via sideload:

  1. Download the ROM and boot image (for download links see above)
  2. Boot fastboot mode
  3. Connect the phone to the Computer with USB cord.
  4. Flash the boot image (this allows stock recovery to flash unsigned rom zip)
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot_aosp_xxx.img
  5. Wipe userdata (required for first PixelDust/Android 13 install)
    Code:
    fastboot erase userdata
  6. Reboot into fastbootd
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
  7. Use volume keys and power button to select "Enter Recovery"
  8. Select "Apply Update from ADB"
  9. Sideload the ROM zip
    Code:
    adb sideload PixelDust-Tiramisu-aosp-blueline-user-xxx.zip
  10. Reboot


Dirty flashing PixelDust ROM (coming from a previous PixelDust A13 ROM):
Just skip the step "Format data" / "Wipe userdata"

Couldn't add a sim after setup. Went through setup with sim inserted and so far so good. Any plans to add face unlock?

Sim just randomly disappeared and I can't get it back. Still trying to determine if it is the device or rom.

EDIT
Resetting networks got the sim back

Check that it flashed to both slots - pixels contain two partitions, A and B. If it only flashed to partition A, it might be booting into partition B, which still has the stock rom. Also make sure to flash the bootloader to both slots -
fastboot flash boot bootloader.img and fastboot flash boot bootloader.img --slot=other

S_K_I_P, please stop quoting the entire OP. As far as I know it is frowned upon. As far as the camera is concerned why would you think it's any different than the original? Mine seems to be no different than the stock cam.

    YOU MUST HAVE RECENT FACTORY IMAGE FLASHED TO BOTH SLOTS BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME INSTALLING ROM.​
    Let me first say that as a user of the PixelDust ROM, I appreciate all that you do! Love it!

    With the recent $130 Pixel 3 (64GB in "Not Pink") deal from B&H, I picked up a couple to upgrade some family members, and PixelDust would never replace the latest (June 2021) stock ROM from Google. I figured out that it's because of the both slots thing that it wasn't working. Which is fine - you said it needed to be done - but nowhere did I see it written out how to do this.

    So I'm writing out the commands I used. For reference, this worked on three brand new Pixel 3 (Verizon versions, but with the bootloader able to be unlocked) that shipped with the November 2018 build of Android 9.

    Code:
    fastboot --slot all flash bootloader bootloader-blueline-XXXX-#.#-#######.img
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    
    [wait for phone to reboot]
    
    fastboot --slot all flash radio radio-blueline-XXXX-#####-######-X-#######.img
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    
    [wait for phone to reboot]
    
    fastboot --set-active=a
    fastboot -w update image-blueline-XXXX.######.###.zip
    
    [wait as it goes through fastbootd and eventually restarts to Android on its own]
    [reboot into the bootloader]
    
    fastboot --set-active=b
    fastboot -w update image-blueline-XXXX.######.###.zip
    
    [wait as it goes through fastbootd and eventually restarts to Android on its own]
    [reboot into the bootloader]
    
    [flash PixelDust per instructions in the OP]

    Essentially, I could flash the bootloader and radio to both slots at the same time, but had to flash the system image to each slot separately.

    Maybe this will help someone else!
