Hey there! I'm looking at buying a Pixel since my Moto G5 Plus has pissed me off for the final time (not enough Ram... And I can't download more :P)
I've been scouring eBay for a "new" one, but it boils down to this: I can't tell if people are selling a Verizon or Google one. Multiple Google searches have lead me to believe that most of the Skus are for Verizon, and not many sellers provide clearly if it's from Verizon, refurbished from Google, or whatever.
I know how to root and all that, but unlike every other phone I've bought, this stumps me. How can I tell (without the phone in hand and a slightly pricy mistake) if a phone is Google and not Verizon? What questions could I ask to get that info? The bulk resellers probably won't be able to tell me, so it's the little guys for me.
I have a Google Pixel I had gotten used I have been using it stock on Android 10.
But seeing as how the security updates won't be comnig anymore I wanted to keep it secure in the future with Lineage OS and TWRP to update it regularly.
I followed the instructions here:
I have gotten the loader unlocked and it wiped my phone. But I can't get TWRP to work.
The downloads for the TWRP version for Pixel doesn't have an IMG file to load and trying to load the individual files in the archive does not seem to work. I also tried renaming the zip file and it did not work.
Here is the download page.
I can't seem to find any guides on how to do this. I want to keep my pixel up to date with the latest Android 10 updates and the only way will be loading the latest roms manually via TWRP. Please help.
https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-install-twrp/ also doesn't seem to apply
Anybody have any ideas?
