This is the link to android 12 or android S for pixel phones including pixel 4a


Just download the correct zip file , extract (in adb platform tools folder),click on flash-all.bat after putting phone into bootloader and plugging into computer


Root is possible using canary build but after reboot it reverts and gives issues trying to re root using the app - if anyone knows more about getting root to fully work please let us know
 
I never had an issue with rooting the 12 preview on my Google Pixel 4a. But the Safety Net failing was my issue. But I could still use my banking apps, etc. So I have no idea why it would let me use my banking apps if the Safety Net through Magisk failed? But rooting was no issue for me. I used the Canery version of Magisk to patch the boot image to achieve root. Hope that helps? I love the Android 12 preview! I just hope we can achieve getting the Safety Net to pass on it in the future.

Was that with the 1st preview or second ,I have been trying second preview build,was able to root 1st but wouldn't stick after reset and downgrade to v21,which is best magisk build for pixel 4a on Android 11 ,and what version of canary , so far I am getting boot loop on second preview latest canary, and to by pass safety net with magisk , you need to find safety net fixv1.1.0.zip module for magisk , an latest hide magisk props, set its fingerprint to google and choose pixel 4a 5g and your good to go using terminal "su -c props works flawless on Android 11 ,the dev previews are based off android 11 so far I've seen ,and have you attempt ed viper magisk mod,there is only one version that works on pixel 4a android 11 that worked it's an older version newer doesn't activate the drivers , but not on Android 12 ,that's all I really use magisk for and root ,I would post files but I think it's against the rules to use or distribute those kind of files ,if you need them I can send them other ways, also which boot slot is your boot.img flashing to in bootloader ,boot_a or boot_b
