    Post Pixel 3 XL Can't find Valid Operating System

    Not entirely true. If OEM unlocking was previously enabled, then despite your phone being locked, it will still accept the unlocking command. Just happened to me. I am trading in my phone. I uninstalled Magisk, booted to bootloader, locked the bootloader and got the dreaded "Can't find valid...

    Post [Discussion] Google Pay Magisk Discussion Thread

    The key thing is that flashing system and/or boot partition wipes knowledge of alterations. But booting even once with an unmasked unlocked bootloader seems to set a flag that your device is altered. Google Pay then reads that flag and knows the phone is altered no matter what you do until the...

    Post [Discussion] Google Pay Magisk Discussion Thread

    Sure. I would think based on my theory that it would be fine to just redo the update. Uninstall Magisk, reapply the July update, don't allow phone to reboot until you install a kernel that covers up the unlocked bootloader, boot to finish the update then install Magisk as usual. Sent from my...

    Post [Guide] ROOT Pixel 3 XL Android 9.0.0 (Pie) Unlock/Lock Bootloader + Install Stock Images/TWRP Recovery/Systemless Root

    I was on Kantjer 18.1r10. That was the problem. When I updated to the January security build, I used the Magisk flashable uninstaller. Apparently the Kantjer Magisk Manager uses a different signature, which of course makes sense. But I guess by not going through the package uninstaller, that...

    Post [Guide] ROOT Pixel 3 XL Android 9.0.0 (Pie) Unlock/Lock Bootloader + Install Stock Images/TWRP Recovery/Systemless Root

    I did a reflash of the factory image, booted with twrp.img from fastboot, flashed the canary uninstaller then flashed Magisk 18.0. On reboot, still can't install Magisk Manager. The installer thinks it's already installed. I'm uploading the recovery log from TWRP. I ran the canary...

    Post [Guide] ROOT Pixel 3 XL Android 9.0.0 (Pie) Unlock/Lock Bootloader + Install Stock Images/TWRP Recovery/Systemless Root

    I used TWRP for installation of magisk and have tried both the regular uninstaller and the Canary uninstaller. Without magisk manager, I can't get root access to explore those locations. Can I do it through adb? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Post [Guide] ROOT Pixel 3 XL Android 9.0.0 (Pie) Unlock/Lock Bootloader + Install Stock Images/TWRP Recovery/Systemless Root

    I just updated to January build with magisk, but can't get magisk manager to install. On the installer I get the message "Do you want to install an update to this existing application?" This is despite magisk manager not being installed, as far as I can tell. There must be some trace of it...

    I'm guessing is it's because you're accessing Google from a foreign country. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Post Half notch option please!

    I use Nacho Notch. In the settings, set the notification bar height to 130. To complement that, set up top corners rounded with height and width 14 dp. Don't round the bottom corners. You'll see why after a little while if you do. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Post Notification sounds per app?

    I don't understand. Almost all, if not all apps allow you to change the notion sound. Open the app in question and drill through it's settings menu and you'll find an option to change the notification sound. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
