Still on stock ROM/firmware? If so, you are pretty much missing out on 99% of what your Nexus 6P can do. For this week’s custom ROM of the week, check out the latest Dirty Unicorns ROM.
Based on latest Android 6.0.1, Dirty Unicorns ROM brings you faster performance, better battery life, and best of all, ton of customization. This is also one of my favorite ROMs that I run on my old Galaxy Note 2 and 3.
For customization, Dirty Unicorns ROM has full tweaking options for your lockscreen, status bar, navigation, multi-tasking (multi-window), and much more. For full overview of the customization options, check out the video overview above.
The only thing missing with this ROM? There’s no stock 6P camera with HDR+, which is a bit disappointing but there should be a way to easily re-install it (if you know how, please let us know in the comments). For root, the ROM comes with SuperSU by default.
Other than that, Dirty Unicorns ROM is one of the most solid custom ROMs you can try for your Nexus 6P so definitely give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
You need a rooted Nexus 6, if you do not have a rooted Nexus 6, see How to Root Nexus 6P first!
For installation, simply reboot into recovery, format /system and /data, then install ROM, Vendor zip file, and Gapps. You can try installing without wipe if coming from stock firmware but make a backup ROM beforehand.
