I would think so. In fact, the "free" version probably supports that. All you would need to do is enable USB Debugging in the Developers Options of your phone.

The toolkit isn't unlocking my phone. I have debugging and OEM unlocking turned on. When I do the steps it says I'm already unlocked.

Hey guys I had followed most of the instructions from op and thread but twrp wouldn't work for me when rebooting to it even though my drive is unlocked and was rooted but after trying to install/flash it again (twrp 3.1.1. beta) I seem to brick my device or well it's stuck on bootloop and now I don't have a stock rom or files on my device smh so how can I get back the stock rom without using fastboot flashing the stock image from Google since I have issues trying to use it on my PC ?☹️ Thanks.

Edit: Nvm i flashed the google stock 8.0 image/zip and it booted to android....

@mskip

Just wanted to let you know that this tool saved my P2XL from being a "paper weight"!
I tried every tool, trick and script to no avail but someone suggested your tool and I thought
spending a few bucks better than loosing a Grand!
It took me two "Flash Run" to get my beloved P2XL back to the world of living!
Thank you.

@mskip: I received my pixel 2xl last week and the first thing I did was give it the toolkit treatment. As with any other phone I used your toolkit with, it was a walk in the park.

This week 8.1 has been released. On other forums here on XDA, I found several (often confusingly different) methods on how to update, all involving adb commands. As I'm a lazy bugger who likes things easy (hey, that's why I keep buying your toolkit ) would you mind explaining in detail how to update to 8.1 using the toolkit? I think other users would find this useful as well.

FWIW, I'm on the November build, Magisk rooted (14.5) and with Adaway and jrummy busybox installed. If I'm not mistaken my recovery is still stock.

Thanks.

You have to have bootloader unlocked critical, download factory 8.1 image, place it in the put factory image folder in the toolkit directory, use option 9,2 to flash it, say no to format data, if you want to keep it.

Or download ota image, put in the sideload folder in the toolkit directory, and use option 10.

To root after you update to 8.1,
just boot to twrp.img, dont flash it, then flash magisk 14.5 modified and restart.
