Google Pixel XL is the larger of the two “Made by Google” smartphones introduced last year at the expense of the Nexus line which was a huge favorite among hardcore Android fans and developers alike.  It should come as no surprise that despite being way more expensive than the most expensive Nexus smartphone ever, the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL do enjoy the same kind of developer love. And here in this tutorial, we’ll go step by step on how to install Resurrection Remix v5.8.2 ROM on the Google Pixel XL. Resurrection Remix is one of those heavy on features ROMs and it’s one of my personal favorites as well.

  1. Charge your device up to at least 50% before starting the procedure. It’s not a set rule but better safe than sorry.
  2. Enable USB Debugging from Settings> Developer Options.
  3. Backup all your important data to your SD Card or PC.
  4. Make sure you have root access and TWRP recovery already installed. If not, you can take a look here.


The procedure described here has been tried and tested by the developer, as well as many other users. By following our post, you agree that you understand the risks involved and will take full responsibility for whatever happens to your device. We have been extremely careful in describing the procedure below and we hope you follow it carefully. We, at DroidViews, are not responsible for anything that happens to your device as a result of following the procedure incorrectly. If you are okay with this, then go ahead with the tutorial. Do remember that this procedure will void your warranty.

Install Resurrection Remix v5.8.2 ROM on Google Pixel XL

  1. Download the Resurrection Remix v5.8.2 ROM and TWRP RC1 for Google Pixel XL. (XDA thread for TWRP RC1)
  2. Transfer all the files to your Pixel XL device.
  3. Power off your Pixel phone.
  4. Press & hold Power + Volume down button for a few seconds. This will boot your phone into bootloader mode.
  5. In the bootloader mode, press Volume down button twice to highlight Recovery mode and press the Power button to select it.
  6. Once in the TWRP recovery, select Install and navigate to the TWRP RC1 zip file downloaded earlier. Swipe to flash it. Go back to the main menu, select Reboot>Recovery
  7. This should reboot your device to TWRP RC1 recovery. Select Wipe>Advanced Wipe and wipe Dalvik cache, Cache, and data. Do not wipe system.
  8. Flash the ROM and then the TWRP RC1 zip again.
  9. Reboot.

The Gapps are already baked into the ROM for this version but the developer says this might change in the future. As usual, the first boot might take a while so be patient. Refer to the source link for more information.
