Is it necessary to flash the vendor.img?

Well, if you aren't up to date -- you'll get a message on system boot that your vendor image doesn't match what the system image has. All it means is that the system build.prop and vendor build.prop do not match.

Is it necessary? Probably not. However, it's always good to remain up to date.

good stuff! running DU on my Shield Tablet . . . always good to have options :good:

i'm on N-Preview on the Pixel . . . do you know if that will make flashing Vendor required for going back to a MM ROM? i'm traveling on business so won't be able to try this until the weekend.

I would imagine so. Unless you want to deal with the irritating message each time you boot up lol.

Oh my god thank you so much! The lack of ROM development on the Pixel C has really had me bummed out about my purchase. It's great to see another respected developer in here doing great things. I will install this tomorrow and post back with my experience.
I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I certainly haven't been. Dragon is a savage.

I rooted my Pixel C last night so I could flash this. I'm coming from a Nexus 9 - I never knew what to expect. If I didn't find the right magic combination of ROM and GAPPs it would crash and burn on startup.
From flashing to setup to installing apps and themes and then actual use, this has been perfect. Not a hiccup, not a FC. It's evident that some serious work went in to making "stable" mean "stable."

I know I won't need it. I thought that those were just general copy and pasted instructions, but Dragon is kind of different. Ok. Thanks!
It's different, but not that different. The bootloader doesn't interfere with what is flashed as long as what you're flashing is acceptable/verifiable by vboot and verity, which this is.

i used dirty unicorns on a nexus 6 for 4 months and was really impressed. i have a couple questions.
is the dragon build pre-rooted?
by latest twrp is that reference to 3.0.2.0?
would an install be successful by the following steps?
1. flash twrp 3.0.2.0
2. boot into twrp using physical keys to get to menu/select boot to recovery
3. using twrp wipe necessary partitions
4. install dirty unicorns gapps .zips back to back via twrp-- what would be best way to get du & gapps .zips on device after wiping partitions?
5. reboot to OS

i wanted to check first for any errors i may have made in correct process

6. does dirty unicorns handle the issue with stock recovery being installed each boot?

thanks for help and for the ROM
