How to install Android 9 Pie on LeEco Le 2

The Pixel Experience ROM is one of the latest custom ROMs for Android fans and as the name suggests, it is a ROM fashioned in the style of the Google Pixels, meaning you are getting AOSP Android on your device.

The ROM is based on Android 9 Pie and once installed; you’ll be able to enjoy a software experience that mimics the Pixel phones while at the same time getting rid of the many unnecessary apps (bloatware) that other custom ROMs come with on top of stock Android.

Features such as the Pixel Launcher with rounded icons, boot animation, Live Wallpapers, Pixel Sounds, the Pixel’s blue accent and so on will be at your disposal, but of course, your device must be supported by the ROM in order to jump on board.
