This thread was originally for Pixel-specific rooting instructions, but by now the SuperSU ZIP and TWRP are fully supported:

- Fastboot boot TWRP
- Install latest SuperSU ZIP (v2.79-SR3 at the time of writing)

Note that at this time I recommend against fastboot flashing TWRP. With the Pixel's new partition layout, the recovery files are inside the boot partition, and so is SuperSU. If you flash both, SuperSU's internal boot image backup will not be of the original boot image, but of TWRP. This means that neither the 'full unroot' option in SuperSU, nor incremental OTA update through FlashFire, will work as expected.

OR

- Use CF-Auto-Root for Pixel (not released at the time of writing, but should be released soon)

I just unlocked my bootloader. then tried flashing the root-boot img file, it did the reboots, but when i complete android setup, theres no SuperSU and if i install the .apk, it still does not detect root...

just reflashed stock boot.img, locked and unlocked bootloader. waiting for instrustion.

Once again you're the man Chainfire, thanks for all your hard work

- An unnamed tester needed to do the whole thing twice for the root to stick. While I assume this was Jeff's own fault, we can never be sure. -lol

According to the post..

The images for the Pixels need to be 'fastboot boot'ed, not flashed. After a few minutes (have patience) and a couple of (automatic) reboots, Android should boot fully rooted. Read the README in the ZIP.

needed to set everything up and enable usb debugging - thennnn boot into bootloader and flash boot-to-root.img.

all is well!

Worked like a charm! Thanks @Chainfire. I had just posted my pixel up for sale. Guess I'll keep it a while longer.
