Haha, I had to Google DOS. I've heard of Windows 95. Either way, thx for the explanation. That makes sense.

I feel like this may be a stupid question but is it possible to edit build prop with the current root method for Google pixel? I have tried using a few different root file managers and editing the build prop, but every time I reboot the build prop reverts back to its original form. Is there any other way to edit the build prop yet? Maybe using adb? But how would I go about doing that?

There will be, I'm sure. Even if you could find a way to do it, I wouldn't yet. The development community is still starting up, and if something goes wrong, you may not be able to fix it. Have patience, these things will come, they always do.

Anyone had any experience using the Pixel Switch feature, coming from other Android device? I'm wondering whether it will transfer app data properly, especially messaging apps like LINE.

Use a high quality cable that isn't old and worn and you should be able to transfer most data successfully. If not everything you want transfers, I recommend a backup app like My Backup or Titanium Backup

I think I will be doing a manual transfer, since I still want to do the transfer selectively... Thanks for the suggestion.

I haven't had trouble editing the build.prop with es file manager's RB Text Editor
