Google launched its latest smartphone, the Pixel 4a couple of weeks back. The company started shipping out the devices to customers after a brief pre-order period last month. It also noted that the device is also coming to India in the coming weeks. But we still don’t know how much the phone will cost in India. However, in the meantime, the lack of information around the price does not mean that exciting things are not happening around the 4a. According to the latest information available, independent developers just released the first custom ROM and kernels for the Pixel 4a.

As reported by XDA Developer, the custom ROM and kernel will provide some additional options absent in the stock versions. The phone already runs on stock Android so the likelihood of any need for custom ROM may be less. But, options are always good as some people like to experiment with new ROMs on their devices. Interested users will also be pleased to know that Resurrection Remix, the new ROM runs on a custom kernel. The modification features available with the custom ROM are different from what users get with the stock version. Developers have talked about the potential of the custom ROM and the kernels. And while the kernel it stable, they have found the features to be a work in progress. However, the good news is, users won’t have to download the kernels separately.
