    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel 3 XL

    Thank you and sorry for veering off course. I guess I don't quite understand how the recovery works then, so I hope this still counts as relevant? Don't you need twrp to flash custom roms? If this recovery does not support a12, how do such Roms exist?

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel 3 XL

    So if I'm understanding correctly, there aren't any custom roms past A10? Dang, I got the bootloader unlockable version on purpose to keep support past Google's EOL, but what's the point if the customs are stuck on 2 versions ago?

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel 3 XL

    Can't I downgrade to an earlier build? And the idea is to provent whatever bug is causing the bootloader to delete itself, not just to recover from edl mode. I'm wondering if people who have run a modified bootloader are less likely to get it.

    Post [ROM][11][OFFICIAL] lineage-18.1 for Pixel 3/XL (blueline/crosshatch)

    Has anyone had their P3XL die from the EDL bug when using this rom? Trying to see if it's less likely to occur on custom, data on this is sparce. https://www.xda-developers.com/google-pixel-3-stuck-edl-mode/?_ga=2.233331738.549427391.1640017679-1675560730.1623954217

    Sorry for the noob Q, but will installing TWRP on my Pixel help prevent this new randomly dying Pixel thing that's been going on with the 3 for the last couple of months? https://www.xda-developers.com/google-pixel-3-stuck-edl-mode/?_ga=2.233331738.549427391.1640017679-1675560730.1623954217 I...

    Post [FIX] Pixel 3 QUSB_BULK_CID:xxxx_SN:xxxxxxxx

    I haven't seen such an influx of people reporting the same problem on any other model, however. Maybe it happens occasionally on others, but it seems to have suddenly happened to a LOT of Pixel3 users all around the last couple of months mostly. I'm wondering if something in a recent update...

    Post [Guide] Root Pixel 3 XL Android 12

    Sorry for the dumb question, but has anyone with an unlocked/custom bootloader had their pixel 3 xl fail to the dreaded EDL bug that's been going on? Yes that one. I just got one of these as a throwaround phone for my daughter and I'm trying to determine if it's only happening to stock OTA...

    Post Bricked 3XL - QPST recovery?

    I just ordered a 3 XL for my daughter and I'm getting scared seeing these stories. Is it just aged hardware related? Or is it update related? It's weird that it seems to be happening over the last few months on the 3 series which makes me think its either related to an update that rolled out or...

    Post [FIX] Pixel 3 QUSB_BULK_CID:xxxx_SN:xxxxxxxx

    Honestly I'd give her my LG G7 I don't use anymore but she likes the camera of the pixel series and the unlimited (compressed as of now I guess) photo storage. This is the first phone she was excited about since I saw how cheap they are now. Maybe I should dig deeper and go with pixel 2?

    Post [FIX] Pixel 3 QUSB_BULK_CID:xxxx_SN:xxxxxxxx

    No, I wish. It's from Swappa and it's $120. She keeps breaking phones so I never spend a lot on them for her. She went through 2 Nokia 7.1s and an LG G5 in the last couple of years.

    So hang on, I just ordered a P3XL for my daughter to use and heard about this issue after ordering it. I purposely got the Google edition to unlock the bootloader so that we can use custom roms after Google's final update. This bug is scaring me and I'm thinking about sending the phone back as...

    Thread ROMS that support full calling (VOLTE, VOWIFI, etc)

    I'm new to the Pixel 3 community, so forgive the noob question. I've heard mixed reports about the latest A12 updates, and in general I know support is ending / has ended for future OS upgrades on this device, so I'm considering going aftermarket. I'm nervous about losing Volte though, as where...

    Post Worth it in 2021/22?

    I found a swappa 128 gb in good condition for $120, and it's supposed to be the Google version so bootloader unlockable! Just ordered it. I've heard mixed things about the latest A12 roms, so I like the idea of keeping it unlockable for customs. Are there are any good aftermarket roms that stay...

    Post Worth it in 2021/22?

    That's a good deal. Can't find a Pixel 2 right now new. I was paying $10 a month for 1GB of data previously but she's constantly running out from google photos and spotify, so was planning on moving up to $15 for 4GB on Mint anyway. Especially right now, buy 3 months get 3 free. So essentially...

    Post Worth it in 2021/22?

    Yikes, the battery bit that hard over 2 years, huh? I bought a Galaxy S10 used that still has decent battery, and my LG G7 which is around the same generation as the Pixel 3 still can go all day. Is the Pixel battery just more prone to conking out early? She could use my LG but honestly I sold...

    Thread Worth it in 2021/22?

    Looking to get one of these for my daughter. She broke her Nokia 7.1 display and asked for something that takes better pictures if we're replacing her phone anyway. I had Gcam running on that Nokia but I think an actual Pixel would do her better, and just run smoother too. With the current...

    Post GCAM Working with Snapdragon S10/Note10/S20/Note20 Telephoto

    I'm confused about front camera support. Some people said it stopped working because Samsung killed RAW support in an update, then I heard someone found a workaround. But then it seemed unclear if that workaround was just for Exynos editions and required root... I'm trying to get to the bottom...

    But am I to understand that the exynos version DOES work with the front cam? I was about to purchase an S10 in snapdragon specifically because I wanted gcam to work.

    Post GCam (exynos version from BSG)

    Been there. Hated it. I enjoy multiple lenses, headphone jack and wireless charging in my car. There isn't a pixel phone that offers all that, plus they retain their value used far longer. I've had better results with gcam on the aforementioned phones and kept all the features I wanted within a...

    Post GCam (exynos version from BSG)

    Portrait mode is fine, I don't need that. I just want the hdr and detail clarity that gcam adds. Yes it is absolutely a deal breaker- I have pictures on my wall of family trips taken with gcam on my moto and LG phones that print alongside those taken on my $3000+ Sony A7R cameras. It holds up...

    Post GCam (exynos version from BSG)

    So just to understand, does the front camera now work on the S10 variants using hdr+? I was told that the raw support for the selfie camera was disabled by Samsung in an update and therefore gcam can't process it. I've been scouring the internet, I want to buy this used but coming from LG and...

    Post Options for Verizon variant?

    Its the 8" version, so I guess this is a non-starter. Maybe I can root and debloat the stock rom enough to make it worthwhile, but I was really hoping to throw some lineage goodness this way. :/

    Thread Options for Verizon variant?

    I've been searching around for some custom roms, I'm seeing a lot for specific variants but no mention of the Verizon one. I'm also admittedly having trouble with XDA's new system and maybe I'm just not searching correctly. Is anyone out there familiar with the VZ variant and if there are any...

    Post [ROM] [STOCK] Optimized Stock ROMs for Amazon Fire 7 (Ford & Austin) [APR 12 2019]

    Thread Breathe new life into 2015 7"? (Or HD8?)

    I have a couple of the Fire 7" 2015 models that have started to collect dust because over time the OS updates have slowed it to a crawl. I believe this is the "Ford" hardware? But I'm not 100% sure. A couple of years ago, I looked into roms because my 2nd gen HD model (tate?) had an excellent...
