    You need to adb reboot bootloader. Once in bootloader type fastboot continue and it should boot. If it doesn't work the first try keep trying. You may hang on startup. if so do a hard reboot by holding power till it reboots. Then you can reunlock the bootloader with dePixel8 and then flash stock...

    That sucks. I think mine's bad also. I get charging lights and whatnot but it only lasts 10 minutes before the erratic behavior begins and wont stop until I plug it in. Are you buying a new one or are they sending a replacement?

    Sounds like you're remote battery is bad. While charging the light should slowly pule and when charge it should remain solid. Also, while pairing it should pulse and when low you'll get pulses as well. Mine seems to charge ok but behaves erratic after just 5-10 short minutes of use like the...

    That's strange considering that in order to use oms the rom has to have oms commits merged into the rom. Stock roms do not have oms commits and are supposed to use the legacy way of applying the themes which include building the apk's and forcing a reboot to apply the theme's apk's. The apk's...

    Hey man. Just letting you know one kind of major issue with recent updates. If I have tilt to wake on and I sit in my recliner with my phone on the arm at an angle the ambient display will constantly come on without stopping. It will go off after a few seconds and come right back on over and...

    I too was one receiving the overheat message but I have yet to receive an update to Daydream VR. I got the overheating message twice and have yet to use my VR since.

    You need to use legacy as legacy refers to stock and you are using a stock rom. Usually substratum will not even show OMS options while running a stock rom.

    Well then you're lucky because mine gets "oven mitts hot"! I even tried again today and it was so hot I shut it right off.

    That's weird. When I did it I didn't designate a slot (I haven't designated a slot no matter what I've flashed so far) and it's booting on both slots for me. Maybe it flashed to both slots automatically if you don't designate what slot to boot the temp img from. Just a thought. So far everything...

    Wrong, I got and installed the update to NDE63X from NDE63P all while unlocked without any issues. As long as you're not rooted and hadn't changed anything in the system if you were rooted at any point it will download and install updates with the bootloader unlocked.

    It can take up to 20 tries or more. Just keep trying. When it launches your screen will turn off. Immediately turn back on and launch several apps. Like chrome, hit home, G+, hit home then messaging..... It'll eventually take off. It's gotta be perfect conditions for the exploit to initiate...

    I don't think any current kernels for the Pixel devices do this but I know they could in the past. Also, it's not as simple as locking ones bootloader for EE users or Verizon users.
