Well folks, a lot of people questioned if developers were going to make custom ROMs for the Google Pixel since the death of Nexus, the answer: yes. Dirty Unicorns has just dropped the first built from source custom ROM for the Google Pixel, Dirty Unicorns 11. This is still a fresh ROM and will likely have some ironing out to be done but that is what the ROM world is all about. Check out Dirty Unicorns full statement on the release of this first Pixel ROM.
Dirty Unicorns is a project that started out with no name. It was a project that was first based off AOKP back in the early days of Jelly Bean. In the early days it was just a one man show on one device, the EVO 3D. Since then, many others have joined the project and it has grown exponentially.
We have seen a lot of talent contribute to this project of ours. Big or small, the focus was always on contributing to the community. That is ultimately why we do what we do. After Jelly Bean, we decided to move to a new base, OmniROM. While AOKP was fun, OmniROM proved to be even more exciting base because it challenged us to see what we could do with a project that had different goals in mind. We learned a lot and again, gain contributors. With Lollipop, we moved to an AOSP base with a lot of patches from CAF to make our older devices function as they should. We grew even more and learned a whole lot more.
It has been an awesome learning experience and is still not over! We are still learning every day and continue to move forward. Lastly, we DO NOT accept, nor ask, for donations. We don’t believe in that. Everything that is necessary to keep this project going is out of our own pocket. Gerrit, Jenkins, Websites, Devices, etc. We will never ask for a dime. All we do ask, is that you have patience, search, read and try to enjoy the process with us!!
This build comes with GApps pre-installed and no SuperSU. A flashable package for GAppse is in the works, as is proper linking for SuperSU.
All of the major necessary functions work. WiFi Calling on VZW is not working. That is the only issue that I have encountered in the last 24 hours.
If you’re interested in this ROM you can snag it at the DevsBase link below. Please remember, flashing and installing custom ROMs is entirely your responsibility. No one but you is responsible for what you do with your device.
