    Post Where are all the Android 11 custom roms?

    There are at least 6 over in the ROMS FORUM. There are more that are not supported here or even allowed on XDA. You may have better luck asking in that forum. What is it you are looking for that Android won't do?

    Post [KERNEL] [September 8] Pixel 4 ElementalX 2.04 (Android 11)

    There are quite a few guides (stickied at the top) here on how to root your phone step-by-step. Homeboy's guide is a good one. Get rooted first and when EXKM is running rooted, it will install (flash) itself when you check for a new version. Remember when you first unlock you will lose all your...

    Post Is my pixel 4 xl rooted?

    The ONLY way to root the P4XL is with Magisk and the Magisk app will tell you if you are rooted or not. If you don't have the magisk app, you are not rooted. If you have it, it will tell you.

    You did not provide the most important information we need- whether your phone is bootloader unlocked. Probably not, otherwise you would have already flashed it with a full Google image, which returns the phone to "out of the box" condition. You need to determine whether you can unlock your...

    No. Even unlocked and rooted we cannot write to the system partition anymore. Any luck on getting your phone working again?

    Post Need to recover data - phone stuck in booting screen

    You would use fastboot to dirty flash a full image, removing the wipe flag (-w) from the flash-all script beforehand. This wipes and replaces the boot partition but leaves your data intact.

    Post Need to recover data - phone stuck in booting screen

    At this point you may be lucky to recover your phone at all. It would be helpful to know how you got to this point. You started with the "rescue ota" method which is the last ditch effort for most to reflash a phone with a locked bootloader. Knowing what happened beforehand would be useful...

    Post After update security pixel 4xl " your device corrupt"

    From the screenshot provided, OP's bootloader is locked, so he cannot fastboot flash ANYTHING. Within the stock recovery there is an option to flash a full OTA image via ADB from a laptop or PC. A recovery OTA is the only way forward in this case, and is dependent on whether he has a working...

    Post Rooting Pixel 4 XL inquiry

    Just follow one of the guides is your best bet. Magisk is pretty user friendly for patching your own boot.img. There is a thread that keeps up with pre-patched boot.img files but you are better off getting proficient with adb/fastboot and patching your own.

    Post After update security pixel 4xl " your device corrupt"

    Being bootloader locked, about the only thing you can do is flash a FULL OTA IMAGE available from Google's website and flash it from recovery using ADB. This procedure has also been called a "rescue ota". You cannot flash a full image via fastboot (because you are locked) but you can flash the...

    Haven't seen or heard of this. Are you unlocked and or rooted? That your music plays somewhat normally is hopeful. If you already maxed out the volume for call, ring, notification and alarm.

    The problem is caused by one of your installed app settings that you fscked with. You can try resetting app preferences under Settings>>Reset options.

    Post How to know which carrier locks bootloader pixel 4 xl?

    Not gonna happen. Even if the person you bought it from told knew where it came from, that carrier would not carrier unlock the "second hand" phone which may be defaulted on or stolen, so you will not be able to bootloader unlock it. Have you performed a factory reset FROM RECOVERY with no...

    Not that I know of. I still would like to know why the app it works on your GF's phone (10) and not yours (11) because they both have the same location security options.

    Post pixel 4 xl network problem

    By hard reset, do you mean a factory data reset from within the OS or from recovery mode? When you flashed the new image, was it a full image or OTA image? If a full image did you allow it wipe all data? If yes, then it could either your SIM is bad or there is a hardware issue. Easy way to...

    Are you running without your phone? This watch doesn't have any GPS chip or functionality, so it is not going to track your location or track your your route by itself. Sorry if this was obvious already but I don't know what your use case is. On Android 10/11 you can control the location use...

    Should work fine if it is in your plan. If it is not in your plan, or you are pre-paid or using an AT&T MVNO, then you will probably need to use a module. Hotspot has always worked on my plan on every phone.

    Post My device is broken - need help

    USB debugging enabled? Could be a driver/cable issue. Use a known good USB-A data cable, not USB-C to USB-C. Flashing stock boot image to both slots usually gets you back into System. All else failed? Try full OTA image in Recovery via ADB.

    Post Weird Data issue

    How did you "fully" reset your device? If you didn't fastboot flash a full factory image allowing a full wipe then you should go back and start there. If you already did that, I would run it rooted but no modules for a day or two. You probably already identified the culprit, but this would...

    The ability to root is the primary reason I have stayed with Google phones over the past 10+ years.

    Post Should I return the ATT version?

    "Out of contract" doesn't mean anything. The market is flooded with locked phones for sale cheap. Could be stolen, could be broken contract, could be blacklisted, etc. Because it is carrier locked you *will have to* go through AT&T to get it unlocked. If the seller was legit, in good...
