I think I figured it out... So I was able to edit things in the build prop and change the name of device to whatever and it had no effect. I even didn't do the assistant mod.
What I think the issue is, is the newest photos app. Once I downgraded...
Just throwing this out there, have you looked at the build prop? Maybe something in there still showing it as a Pixel?
Build prop shows it is a Nexus 6P / angler
Same issue here. I'm working on figuring it out. Would be nice if we now got unlimited resolution though!
Did you by chance also have a Nougat ROM previously and do the Google assistant mod? Or run the N-ify xposed module or the Google assistan...
I flash this rom with pico gapps, then install Google Photos from the Play Store.
And now Google Photos recognises my phone as a Pixel, but I can't back and sync any photos.
Anyone have the same issue? :confused:
Gapps link is not working
