After officially releasing Android 10, Google uploaded its source code to the AOSP (Android Open-Source Project). That means the code for the latest Android version is up for tweaking by developers and enthusiasts.
So, moving along the same lines, we have got our first AOSP custom ROM based on Android 10, created by a developer named Sagar Makhar. Simply called AOSP 10.0, right now it only supports Asus’ powerful mid-ranger Zenfone Max Pro M1.
While installing the ROM, you’ll have to use a unique TWRP build (that doesn’t work with Android Pie builds) and special Gapps to set things in motion. Don’t worry; all the data has been provided by the developer in his thread (via XDA).
Still, a sense of satisfaction is that the Android 10 custom ROM is quite stable, even though Google has just released Android 10 to the public. According to Sagar, essential features like WiFi, phone calls, fingerprint sensor, camera, GPS, and other sensors are working fine on the AOSP 10.0custom ROM.
If you have an Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and want to try out Android 10, then you can go ahead and download the ROM. But keep in mind that such things can brick your device if done the wrong way.
It is just the start, and I don’t think it will be long before we get to see more custom Android ROMs based on Android 10. The new Android version comes loaded with many features related to privacy and other stuff. But it’s also ruining the experience of some Pixel owners who are complaining about broken features.
