TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel 3 XL

ADB does not work! On the Pixel 3XL, TWRP takes a while to boot up. Be patient, it will boot!

Note, I don't own a Pixel 3 XL, just the regular Pixel 3 (blueline). I personally won't be able to fix ADB. If you have some talent with init scripts and fixing ADB, feel free to work on it and submit a patch.

MTP does not work in TWRP on the Pixel 3 and will not work until we have time to update the TWRP MTP implementation. You will either have to transfer files while in Android or use a USB OTG cable and a thumb drive.

Pixel devices have 2 "slots" for ROMs / firmware. TWRP will detect whichever slot is currently active and use that slot for backup AND restore. There are buttons on the reboot page and under backup -> options to change slots. Changing the active slot will cause TWRP to switch which slot that TWRP is backing up or restoring. You can make a backup of slot A, switch to B, then restore the backup which will restore the backup of A to slot B. Changing the slot in TWRP also tells the bootloader to boot that slot.

The zip install method installs TWRP to both slots.

Installation:
If you already have TWRP installed: Download the latest zip and install the zip using TWRP.

If you do not already have TWRP installed: Download both the img and the zip. Copy the zip to your device. You will need to have fastboot binaries and the correct drivers installed. Power off your device completely. Hold volume down and turn on the device. Your device should now be in the bootloader. Connect the device to your PC. Open a command window and run the following command from the proper location:

fastboot boot path/to/twrp.img

This will temporarily boot TWRP on your device. If you are using a lockscreen pin/pattern/password and do not get prompted to enter your passord, reboot to the bootloader and try again. Go to install and browse to the zip and install the zip. If you are currently rooted, you will need to reflash the stock boot image before installing TWRP. After installing the stock boot image, follow the instructions for installing TWRP. Once TWRP is installed, you will need to reflash root.

If you accidently flash TWRP to your device using fastboot instead of temporarily booting the image, you will need to download the latest factory image for your device and reflash the boot image.

Did you flash it? The instructions say specifically to not flash TWRP using fastboot.

You need to fastboot boot twrp.img, then use the twrp_installer.zip INSIDE TWRP to install correctly.

If you can't boot, flash the stock boot.img to boot_a and boot_b and you should be back to normal.

I installed TWRP successfully and was able to boot into it, but it appears the touch screen is unresponsive when I do this? I can turn the screen on and off, and TWRP will show the lock symbol and decrypt screen, but it's completely unresponsive to touch inputs.

This does NOT happen when I use `fastboot boot twrp.img` only when I used the installed TWRP.

Others having this issue?

Yup. You have to wait for a modified boot.img/kernel I totally forgot about that

Where? I think you mean ADB. How else are you going to flash it?

edit: I see what you mean. Boot, then flash with the booted TWRP. NEVER MIND...CARRY ON.

Yup. Same problem. This also happened on the P2/P2xl. You needed to flash a custom kernel as well. We'll have to wait for that. Until then, do all of your flashing during the "booted" TWRP.

edit: so yeah, pretty much what @freddienuxx said. I'm not having a good morning guys.

It's seems everything is working properly on the Pixel 3 but not the 3 XL.
