GOOGLE PIXEL XL- SUPPORTS ALL VERSIONS UP TO THE LATEST ANDROID BUILDS.
SEE SUPPORT LIST FOR PUBLIC/PRO VERSIONS *HERE*

NOTE: Verizon and ee uk models have locked the bootloaders. In this case you will not be enable the oem unlock setting to unlock the bootloader via the developer screen. You can force unlock the bootloader using dePixel8 in the Bootloader unlock section if your build is 7.1.0 NDE63X or lower. This method was patched in 7.1.1 and does no longer work. If you have a Verizon/ee uk model on 7.1.0 you MUST force unlock the bootloader before accepting the OTA update or your bootloader will be unlockable.

The Unified Android Toolkit brings together Nexus, Google, Samsung and OnePlus Toolkits and supports many devices. There is also an option at startup to run a Basic Android Toolkit which any Android device can use to install drivers, make app backups, install apk files, reboot the device into different modes and run a command prompt for manual input.

NOTE: Key files are signed with a Digital Certificate from skipsoft.net but some �may� get picked up as potentially harmful by Antivirus Programs and deleted. They are not harmful, this is a false positive given because of the compiler used. If this happens restore the file and exclude the folder from future scans to use it. This seems to happen mostly on AVG Free and Norton. If you are using the Auto Update feature on pro versions then you will need to disable the AV program or exclude the folder from scans before running the update again.

--------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUBLIC (FREE) AND PROFESSIONAL (DONATE) VERSIONS?
THE PUBLIC VERSION OF THE TOOLKIT INCLUDES EVERYTHING YOU COULD NEED TO MANIPULATE AND ROOT YOUR DEVICE.

ACTIVATING THE PROFESSIONAL VERSION ADDS THE MOST USEFUL FUNCTION IN THE TOOLKIT, THE ABILITY TO CHECK FOR �AUTO UPDATES� DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT AND HAVE THEM PUSHED TO YOUR PC RIGHT AWAY AS SOON AS THEY ARE UPLOADED WITHOUT NEEDING TO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE TOOLKIT EVERY TIME. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE LATEST VERSION AS SOON AS IT IS MADE AVAILABLE. THIS MEANS SMALLER UPDATES CAN BE SENT OUT MORE FREQUENTLY, SUCH AS ADDING A SINGLE FUNCTION, FIXING A BUG OR ADDING COMPATIBILITY FOR A SINGLE CARRIER. THE SMALLER UPDATES WILL BE COMPILED AND RELEASED TO THE XDA COMMUNITY AS A FULL (PUBLIC) DOWNLOAD VERSION SO PROFESSIONAL VERSIONS ARE ALWAYS UPDATED SOONER.
THE PRO VERSION ALSO ADDS THE ABILITY TO CHECK FOR THE LATEST VERSION OF SUPERUSER AND RECOVERY FILES AND DOWNLOAD THEM DIRECTLY TO THE TOOLKIT.
THE �QUICK PICKS� SECTION[/B] ALLOWS YOU TO PROGRAM UPTO 10 SLOTS WITH TASKS THAT YOU MAY PERFORM ON A REGULAR BASIS OR JUST WANT TO KEEP A SET OF TASKS IN 1 PLACE. THEN JUST SELECT THE SLOT AND IT WILL REMEMBER ALL YOUR SETTINGS FOR THAT TASK AND RUN IT.
PRO USERS CAN ALSO SELECT THE �ANY BUILD� OPTION IN THE BUILD SELECTION SCREEN TO ROOT ANY BUILD AS LONG AS THE VERSION IS SUPPORTED (USEFUL IF YOUR BUILD IS NOT LISTED).

MORE IMPORTANTLY DONATING SHOWS YOUR APPRECIATION AND ALLOWS THE TOOLKIT TO CONTINUE TO EVOLVE AND GROW.

YOU CAN ALSO NOW UPGRADE TO THE ULTIMATE MODE. ONCE THIS MODE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED YOU WILL BE ABLE TO UNLOCK ALL DEVICE MODULES (PRESENT AND FUTURE) AND WILL NEVER HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER PRO CODE AGAIN.

AUTO REPLY LINKS FOR PAYPAL TO GET A CODE INSTANTLY CAN BE FOUND AT http://goo.gl/nyGqv

--------------------------------------------------------------

PLEASE READ THE *HELP* PAGE AT http://www.skipsoft.net/?page_id=1269 OR USE THE INFORMATION SECTION WITHIN THE TOOLKIT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. I HAVE TAKEN A LOT OF TIME TO WRITE IT AND SOMETHING ON THERE SHOULD ANSWER 99% OF PROBLEMS.

--------------------------------------------------------------

1. INSTALLING ADB/FASTBOOT DRIVERS

The first thing you need to do is to install the adb/fastboot drivers. These are needed so that you can unlock your bootloader, root your device and perform other adb/fastboot functions.

THE DRIVERS CAN BE INSTALLED DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT. OPTION 1 IN THE MAIN MENU.

If drivers are not installed or there is an exclamation mark next to the device:
Plug the device in to a usb cable directly connected to your motherboard.
In the Device Manager a new item, usually called Android 1.0 should pop up in the list.
Right click on the device item then left click on Update Driver Software. Select 'browse my computer' and then 'Let me pick from a list'.
If no adb interface driver appears in the list then untick 'Show compatible hardware' and find the Android or Samsung adb interface driver.
If you cannot find either of these click Have Disk, browse to the Toolkit install folder, drivers folder, click on android_winusb.inf and click Open.
Click OK and select Google ADB Interface.

Make sure you have USB debugging enabled in settings, developer options. In Android 4.2.2 or later you have to enable the developer options screen by going to settings, About on your device and click on Build number at the bottom 7 times until it says You are now a developer. If you have already enabled usb debugging then unplug/replug the usb cable.

On Android 4.2.2 or later when you replug the usb cable after enabling usb debugging for the first time you will get a popup asking you to authenticate your pc. Tick 'Always allow' then click 'ok'.

--------------------------------------------------------------

2. USING SKIPSOFT UNIFIED ANDROID TOOLKIT

When starting the Toolkit you will first be asked which device you want to work with. Working folders will be created and the device files downloaded. You will then be taken to the Model/Build selection screen where you can do a number of things (other than select your model/build): Type '00' to enter your activation code and enable pro features if you have one, 'dr' will allow you to install drivers, 'i' will take you to the Information and Help Section, 'a' will give you information on how to add support for a new build.

Supported builds are listed in the Model/Build selection screen and typing the associated number (i.e. 11) will download needed boot and recovery files (stock and custom recovery) then check for and download the latest superuser files available and custom recovery (pro versions only), verify all the files and start the Main Menu. You can now use all the functions and tools the Android Toolkit offers. Pro users can select the "any build" option to root any build (useful if your build is not listed).

--------------------------------------------------------------

USEFUL INFORMATION
How to get into your FastBoot Mode
1. Turn your phone off
2. Unplug your usb cable if you have one plugged in
3. Keep holding the 'Volume Down' and 'Power' buttons to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode

How to get into Recovery
1. First boot into FastBoot Mode as described above
2. Scroll down with the 'Volume Down' button until it says 'Recovery mode' at the top and press the 'Power' button to enter Recovery

Show the Menu in the Stock Recovery Screen
1. Hold the Power button and keep holding as you press the Volume Up button quickly. The blue recovery menu screen should pop up.

**FAQ**

Q: How do I enable Developer options?
– Go to Settings from the apps drawer
– Scroll Down and Tap on About Phone or About Device
– Go down to the Build number section
– Tap on the Build number option 7 times
– Go back to the Settings screen
– Scroll Down and Tap on Developer options (just above the About option)

Q: I get an error while trying to unlock the bootloader -> FAILED(remote: oem unlock is not allowed), what now?
Starting with Android 5.0, on certain devices you need to enable Bootloader Unlocking from the developer settings, in order to do that, follow these steps:
– Enable Developer options (go to Settings, About and tap on Build number 7 times)
– Enable USB Debugging (Settings, Developer options)
– Look for the ‘Allow OEM Unlock’ or ‘OEM Unlock’ Option and tick it

Q: When I boot in to TWRP it asks me for a password
Android 5.0 Lollipop brings new security features like encrypted data. TWRP for Nexus 5X, 6, 6X and 9 is able to decrypt all the data using “default_password “. This allows TWRP to decrypt the information without any problems.

So does this actually root the device at this moment? Which supersu does it install? I looked at TWRPs official website no TWRP released for the pixel. Is just a future thread for when chainfires root is released and an official twrp is released. If not what version of TWRP. Also will you be updating TWRP? Since no official version yet? Did chainsDD really create su patch. What version of superSU is it going to be updateable via play store and allow to update su binaries etc. @mskip

The following text is at the top of the first post..

As soon as stock firmware and custom recovery are available I can enable more functions. The Toolkit does a LOT more than just root
