Does this ROM have the pixel launcher that has the 2X2 grid option where the icons are huge and fills the screen?

Help, I have a problem root flashing magisk.zip in TWRP or even I flashed it with adb sideload for Pixeldust android 12, it doesn't work. If I try to flashed magisk patched boot, the screen will be untouchable, and I have to reflash the stock rom again. Any help?

Wow, I want so badly this rom!

I have tried it all, and yet I can not install the room.
1st, I deleted all de fingerprints and security pin.
2nd, I installed the October Factory Image.
3rd, I got into the bootloader and fastboot boot twrp.img.
4th, I did everything and once I flash the room, it just turn off and turn on in the TWRP main menu.

For the record, this is the logcat:
Is there something that I am missing?

Do not mind me, I just used the ADB Sideload method.

Yeah I have the same problem. It crashes as soon as I try to install the ROM.

Do not mind me, I just used the ADB Sideload method.
And this is what finally worked for me after I gave up after fighting with TWRP for half an hour.

Hahah I can relate.

Also, is there a ''Always Display'' feature on this ROM?
I have not found it. I do know that when a notification comes, the screen turns on, but it is not the same as the screen keeps on with the clock and that...

Sure, it has Always On Display. The setting preference is in the same location as it is in the stock ROM: Settings>Display>Lock screen

Is there any special process for upgrading when rooted? I'm new to dealing with Magisk.

Also, this ROM has been pretty fantastic. There was a performance regression in the graphics that makes it seem a bit more stuttery than before and the audio does weird things from time to time but everything else has been great and getting this kind of battery from a Pixel 3 XL is wild.

I charged the phone to 88% so this isn't even representative of a full charge.

Edit: Nevermind, updating and keeping root was easy. Just downloaded the boot image, patched with Magisk, sideloaded the new update, and flashed the patched boot image. Couldn't be simpler.

    Stable PixelDust CAF Android 12.1 based ROM update has been pushed.

    Enjoy!
  • 20
    XDA_Banner_2021.png

    PixelDust ROM is an Android 12 ROM inspired by the original Google Pixel firmware with full support for Material Design 3.

    PixelDust CAF is based on the Code Aurora Sources, more commonly known as CAF. CAF ROMs are therefore generally considered to be more optimized for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs than AOSP ROMs (in performance, RAM management, battery, etc.).

    Of course, we're adding a decent selection of the coolest custom ROM functions that would have been missing if they weren't included.

    The PixelDust crew would be very happy if you took a little time to leave your valuable feedback, your honest opinion or just say hello.

    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 cups of coffee for spezi77. Cheers!

    Help us help you!

    If you find a bug in one of our builds, please report it here or in our Telegram Group. You MUST include the following when posting a bug report:

    2. Kernel and mods used
    3. Useful information (which build, steps for reproduction, screenshots, etc.)

    If you fail to report something adequately, DO NOT expect things to be fixed.

    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 RECENT 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#crosshatch
    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 (you are required to remove the screen lock) or via Sideload (for advanced users).

    A. Flashing PixelDust ROM via TWRP:

    1. Important: Before you begin, remove the screen lock (password/PIN/pattern) or change to "Swipe". Go to Settings > Security >Screen lock.
    2. Download the ROM and both TWRP files (img + zip) (for download links see above).
    3. Boot fastboot mode.
    4. Connect the phone to the Computer with USB cord.
    5. Copy twrp-3.6.0_11-0_CPTB-20211219-01-crosshatch.img to the platform-tools folder or folder that has fastboot in it and rename it twrp.img.
    6. Open a Command Prompt.
    7. At the Command Prompt type and press enter.
      Code:
       fastboot boot twrp.img
    8. If requested, swipe to allow modifications.
    9. Tap "Wipe", then tap "Format data" and type yes to continue.
    10. Copy the rom zip and twrp-installer-3.6.0_11-0_CPTB-20211219-01-crosshatch.zip to your device.
    11. Tap "Install", select the rom zip, tap "Add more Zips", select the twrp-installer.zip and Swipe Slider to install.
    12. 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_caf_xxx.img
    5. Wipe userdata (required for first PixelDust/Android 12 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-SaltedCaramel-caf-crosshatch-user-20220107-2246.zip
    10. Reboot


    Dirty flashing PixelDust ROM (coming from Android 12):
    Just skip the step "Format data" / "Wipe userdata"

    Thank you for your work! Great rom, but the back gesture usually don't do anything. And when I use icon packs their shape on the main screen is always the same and can't be change.

    1. Back gesture
    Pls check whether you have enabled the option "Accidental touch". This could interfere with the back gesture.

    2. Icon pack
    It is likely that the icon pack has a problem or isn't compatible with Android 10. I have installed this pack and it works like a charm: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arandompackage.flatconsblack
