[Root] Get The Google Pixel Experience With One Simple Mod

 

Google said that there will be few feature which is only limited to Google Pixel. But as you all know Android community is filled with awesome modders. So, a developer named FaserF made a flashable zip that will give you almost all of Google's Pixel-exclusive features on other devices—and the Pixel isn't even officially out yet!

The new boot animation, Pixel Launcher, wallpapers, ringtones, and even more Pixel features can be added to your rooted Android in just a few quick taps.

The flashable ZIP comes courtesy of developer FaserF, as he put together a collection of the leaked Pixel features to make them all easier to install. At the same time, we owe some thanks to LlabTooFeR for leaking the firmware from the Pixel and Pixel XL, which is where all of these goodies came from. So let's begin..

You need :

  • Rooted Android device
  • Custom recovery installed
  • Android 6.0 or higher
What You'll Get :

  • Pixel Launcher
  • Pixel wallpapers
  • Pixel Dialer
  • Pixel boot animation
  • Pixel ringtones & UI sounds
Step 1: Download the All-in-One ZIP

First up, just download the all-in-one flashable ZIP from the link below, then boot your phone into recovery mode.



Step 2: Make a Backup


Even if your phone is running Marshmallow or Nougat, there's a chance that this ZIP won't be compatible with your device. So to make sure you have a fallback plan in case anything goes wrong, you should make a full NANDroid backup first.

To do that, simply tap the "Backup" button from TWRP's main menu, then swipe the slider at the bottom of the screen. It'll take a few minutes, but when it's done, you'll have a restore point to work with. Should you need to restore this backup in the future, just boot into TWRP, tap "Restore," then swipe the slider.

Step 3: Flash the ZIP in Recovery


Next up, tap the home button at the bottom of the screen to head back to TWRP's main menu. From here, press "Install," then navigate to your Download folder, and select the PixelExperience.zip file. After that, just swipe the slider at the bottom of the screen to install the mod, and when that's finished, tap "Reboot System."

Step 4: Try the New Features


As soon as you reboot after applying the mod, you'll notice one of the major changes right up front. If everything went off without a hitch, you'll see the Pixel's brand new boot animation while your phone starts up.

After that, just make sure to set Pixel Launcher as your default home screen when prompted, then you'll be all set to go. The new launcher has tons of cool tweaks, including a wallpaper picker with awesome Google images.

Then, of course, you've got the new dialer with its revamped interface. You'll also find that your system sounds have been updated to the new versions, and the Pixels' ringtones and notification sounds will be added to your existing tones, so it's all new all around.
