Before the Google Pixel devices were even released, FaserF – a developer, made a flashable ZIP that can give you almost all the Google Pixel’s features on other Android devices. Features including a new boot animation, wallpapers and dialer, which are exclusive to Pixel devices can be added to any Android devices with just a few taps. Google tried to give their device an edge by including features that won’t be available on other Android devices for quite some time. But thanks to Android’s open source awesomeness, we won’t have to wait or buy a new device to get these features. Here’s how to get Pixel experience on any Android.
Get Pixel Experience
Before you start
Make sure your device is rooted. This guide will not work if your device is not rooted. Search the internet or our site for rooting guides for your device. Also, you need to have custom recovery installed to flash the ZIP. We will be using TWRP recovery for this guide. This mod only works on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above. If your device doesn’t meet any of the 3 requirements, do not attempt to install the mod; it WILL break your device.
This flashable ZIP contains the leaked Pixel exclusive features. You can find the list of all the features that is included inside this flashable ZIP below.
- Pixel Launcher
- Pixel Wallpapers
- Pixel Dialer
- Pixel Boot Animation
Let’s Get Started
First, you need to download the all-in-one flashable ZIP. Once that is done, reboot your device into recovery mode.
Always make a backup if you are going to alter the device’s system partition. If anything goes wrong, you can always fallback to last known stable state. To do so, go to Backup and swipe the slider to begin the backup procedure. This will take a few minutes. You can restore the image by going to Restore and swiping the slider.
Now we can begin flashing the ZIP. On TWRP’s main menu, tap on Install. Navigate to the download folder and select the PixelExperience.zip file. Now, swipe the slider to begin installation. After the installation finishes, tap on Reboot System.
Google Pixel Experience
When you reboot your system, you’ll notice the first change – the new Google Pixel boot animation. After the booting finishes, you will see a brand new Pixel Launcher. Set it as the default launcher and get ready to play with its new features. You will also see a new dialer.
