How to Install Dirty Unicorns ROM using Fastboot!

In this tutorial, I show you how to install Dirty Unicorns on any Android device using fastboot. Normally, we’d use TWRP recovery to install a custom ROM but with Android 10 and 11, TWRP is still in development or not working fully for phones like Pixel 4.

Video tutorial here:

Step 1. Make sure you have unlocked the bootloader on your Android device(https://highonandroid.com/android-root-101/how-to-unlock-bootloader-on-any-android-android-root-101-1/) then make sure you are on Android 9 or 10. Android 11 will not boot.

Step 2. Download fastboot.zip, Dirty Unicorns ROM zip and boot image files.

Download fastboot.zip:

Download Dirty Unicorns ROM zip + boot image:

Step 3. Unzip fastboot.zip into your Downloads folder called “fastboot” then copy both the ROM zip and boot image files to the same folder.

Step 4. Open a command prompt/terminal and type:

For Windows:

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
fastboot flash --slot all boot PutNameOfBoot.img

For Linux:

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
chmod 755 *
sudo ./fastboot-linux flash --slot all boot PutNameOfBoot.img

For Mac:

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
chmod 755 *
./fastboot-mac flash --slot all boot PutNameOfBoot.img

Step 5. Boot into DU recovery then do a factory reset/wipe. Then put into ADB sideload mode.

Step 6. Type:

For Windows:

adb sideload PutNameOfROM.zip

For Linux:
sudo ./adb-linux sideload PutNameOfROM.zip

For Mac:
./adb-mac sideload PutNameOfROM.zip

Step 7. Reboot and enjoy!
