    Post Pixel 3 XL Can't find Valid Operating System

    Not entirely true. If OEM unlocking was previously enabled, then despite your phone being locked, it will still accept the unlocking command. Just happened to me. I am trading in my phone. I uninstalled Magisk, booted to bootloader, locked the bootloader and got the dreaded "Can't find valid...

    Post [Discussion] Google Pay Magisk Discussion Thread

    The key thing is that flashing system and/or boot partition wipes knowledge of alterations. But booting even once with an unmasked unlocked bootloader seems to set a flag that your device is altered. Google Pay then reads that flag and knows the phone is altered no matter what you do until the...

    Sure. I would think based on my theory that it would be fine to just redo the update. Uninstall Magisk, reapply the July update, don't allow phone to reboot until you install a kernel that covers up the unlocked bootloader, boot to finish the update then install Magisk as usual. Sent from my...

    I was on Kantjer 18.1r10. That was the problem. When I updated to the January security build, I used the Magisk flashable uninstaller. Apparently the Kantjer Magisk Manager uses a different signature, which of course makes sense. But I guess by not going through the package uninstaller, that...

    Get pixel in fastboot mode.

One nice little trick there is you can just type the [fastboot flash boot ] Then just drag your...

    The problem is probably those patched images. I would reflash your unpatched boot images to both slots a and b. That should get you back to square one.

    Pixel XL, original. After the first failure I updated platform tools to the latest version, API 27. Before updating, not sure. Original install was 12/23/2017. Do you need to uninstall Magisk before applying the security patch? Normally I do, but this time did not.

    If you re-lock the bootloader, the next time you update you're going to have to re-unlock assuming you want to keep root. And that means wipe all data.
