All future discussion will happen in the Pixel 2 XL thread as the kernel is fully unified!

I'll be flashing this the second I get home. Used the kernel on my 6P and it was rock solid. Looking forward to getting it on my device!

I see you mention that the kernel is based on 4.4.97 but I am running the latest build (025) and kernel version says 4.4.56, but I guess it is still ok to install?
Also, have anyone tried to patch the boot image with Magik?

Were you flashing the boot image with fastboot? It should be 4.4.97.

I actually downloaded the full ROM from Google and used the boot image from the zip file and tried to patch the boot image using Magisk but that did not work. So I am checking other methods..
But strange that the version does not match...

Found a newer version of Magisk Manager and patched your boot image and now I have root and running your kernel...

So you have to have the boot.img on your phone for magisk to patch it, then do you need to transfer that boot.img to your computer where you can use fastboot to flash it while in the bootloader?

Patched with Magisk 14.4 from Pixel 2 XL thread and fastboot flashed on November 8.0 stock
All good, SafetyNet passed. I'll be testing for stability and report back.
Thanks Nathan!
