In this guide, we will show you the steps to install Pixel Experience ROM on your OnePlus 10 Pro device. The OEM has probably been going through a rough patch for the past few months, and its decision to incorporate elements of Oppo’s ColorOS into its in-house OxygenOS plays a major role in that. Even in custom development things aren’t getting much better either with the MSM tool now requiring an authorized account to login.

But wait, it looks like there’s still some light at the end of the tunnel, all thanks to generic system images. In this regard, Pixel Experience, one of the most popular custom ROMs, has reached this device in the form of GSI. As its name suggests, it will give you a clean stock-like UI experience with the Material You theme and a few Pixel goodies. So without further ado, let’s get started with the steps to install Pixel Experience ROM on your OnePlus 10 Pro.
