In addition, please be aware that TWRP is currently not compatible with Android 10. If you would like to use TWRP you will need to go back to Android 9. If you would like more information you can read at the link here.
Not a huge problem, stock users can just temporarily boot TWRP if you have access to a PC.
Not compatible with Android Q.
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.
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. 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. Use ADB or MTP to transfer the zip onto your device.
Go to install and browse to the zip and install the zip. The zip will install TWRP to both boot slots. Installing TWRP at this time will remove root if you are currently rooted.
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.
3.3.1-0: Initial release for Pixel 3A XL devices
3.3.1-1: Fixed having to manually change slots before rebooting.
3.3.1-2: Updated to July blobs!
3.3.1-3: Can now install TWRP to boot image. ADB, MTP, LOGD, Repack Tools and Logcat have all been removed to save the necessary space for this to work. You can grab stuff while in the OS, then flash it in TWRP (Keep in mind I have only tested this on stock as of now, feel free to test it on whatever ROM you use. It should work, but let me know if it doesn't).
3.3.1-4: Changed back to LZMA compression, also added back all the features besides ADB/Logcat. As long as your kernel supports LZMA you will be able to take advantage of installing it permanently without having to worry about space restrictions.
Add persist entry to fstab
* To allow TWRP to store a backup settings file on /persist
and also to be used as QCOM time fix source during early boot.
Revert "Don't include logcat."
Revert "Don't include repack tools."
Revert "Revert "Don't include repack tools.""
Add haptics firmware.
* This obviously on it's own isn't enough to get haptics working for the 3A in TWRP, but its a start.
Don't include a precompiled update_engine_sideload
* This should fix the issue of flashing officials for StatiXOS
