Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 5X get AOSP Android Pie ports
Both of these devices are pretty old and have had their official support cut-off. The Nexus 6 finished at Android Nougat, while the Nexus 5X finished off at Android Oreo. Android Pie has only been out for two weeks now, yet so many of the community’s most popular devices have already gotten working ports.
First up is Nexus PieX by XDA Senior Member argraur for the Nexus 5X. The only things that are actually fully broken are SafetyNet and VoLTE, quite the accomplishment for a newly released custom ROM. Even Google Apps and the camera work, some features which other developers have run into issues with. On the Nexus 6 port by XDA Recognised Developer Myself5 and the rest of the CarbonROM team, there’s much of the same. Everything works, bar the mobile network sometimes after a reboot. That’s easily fixed as well, as you simply need to enter a dialer code and enable the mobile network for it to work. It’s certainly not a dealbreaker as it doesn’t appear to happen every time after a reboot either. The only thing is that encryption is entirely broken. Don’t even try it.
