Yeah, and if they will ever reply...

But if Mark lists these builds in the toolkit, he must know what the difference between the builds is? Otherwise it is just like a car manufacturer and you ask him: what does this button or switch do and the manufacturer can't answer that because he doesn't know. It is him that build the car so surely he must know

Your device has not been set

.. and goes back to the main menu. I did it a few times and made sure I selected the correct device (#10, google pixel xl2).. but it just keeps doing it.

Im sorry about this I only just realised I hadnt added the Pixel 2 devices to the stock flash selection list (resulting in the Device has not been set error). I have been back in hospital for a few weeks so now back and trying to catch up. Im enabling the flash procedure now and giving an option of a normal flash or extracting all the image files and flashing seperately. The second method is more proven to fix soft bricked devices so may come in useful for some people. I haven't added Magisk yet but have enabled custom recovery as TWRP is in beta now so rooting with SuperSU should be possible/ I will try and add Magisk in the next few days but have to catch up on emails and November updates that never got finished so please be patient.

Updates for ALL users should go live today.

As to the questions about the EMR build, that part was listed by google and has now been taken off. As other people have said I assume it is some kind of maintenance release but I dont think its anything to worry about or spend too much brain power trying to work out. I have taken it off the listings in the Toolkit.

I appreciate the response but no explanation necessary. I know what I'm getting into when I buy a device that was just released.. and I further know what I'm getting into when messing around with it while development on it is only a handful of weeks old.

Thanks for your contribution to furthering the development.

UPDATE FOR GOOGLE PIXEL 2 XL DEVICE FOR ALL USERS (PRO AND PUBLIC)

A couple of updates to post. Sorry there hasn't been much activity over the past few weeks I have been in hospital.

Changelog [Google Pixel 2 XL]
[V1.0.5] 01ST DEC 2017
+Fixed/Enabled Stock image flash routine [option 9 from main menu]
+Added option in stock flash routine for standard flash or extract images/flash
+Updated Magisk Beta to v14.5.1456 with support for Pixel2/XL devices
[V1.0.4] 27TH NOV 2017
+Enabled Custom Recovery functions and added TWRP 3.1.1.beta2 to download/use
+Made some minor adjustments to toolkit procedures

Custom recovery options are now available so you can try rooting with SuperSU. The Toolkit should also push SuHide to protect it from safetynet. You can also try Magisk as I think the beta version works with Pixel2/XL now. When I added the Pixel2/XL devices to the Toolkit I forgot to add them to the list for stock image flashing which is why it came up with the message saying device has not been set. This has been fixed and I have provided 2 flashing options for all Pixel devices. You can use the standard method google uses or you can extract the images from the image zip file and flash them separately. This 2nd method will set the active slot to slot a before flashing. It has been proven to better fix soft bricked devices but both should work fine.

Pro users can just start the Toolkit as normal. After you have selected your device you will be notified there is an update available and can auto update. SIMPLE.

Non Pro users have a few extra steps.
1. Exit the Toolkit if it is open.
2. Run ToolkitClean.exe from the intallation folder (or the Start Menu).
3. Select option 62 to update the Toolkit.exe file to the latest version.
4. Select the device from the list
5. Type ‘y’ or ‘yes’ (without the quotes) to delete the existing module files and settings for the device
6. Restart the Toolkit, select the device and new module files will be downloaded/installed

If you want to donate to the device module project or purchase an Ultimate Code to unlock all devices/features please do it through the Toolkit so you get the right code fast.

Mark,

FYI, the donate link within the Pixel 2 XL module seems broken.

Toolkit > 10 > D > 1 = Error

Well, I just came back from the iOS realm. And I'm happy to see you're still around mskip. Definitely appreciated your tool when I had my few Nexus devices a few years ago, and look forward to using this again when my Pixel XL 2 comes later this week
