Has anyone else not been able to update to the final release of Android 12 from the Beta? My understanding was it was released a few weeks ago but I am still showing updated when I check. Hopefully it's obvious by the forum but it's a Pixel 4 XL. Any help is appreciated.

The first stable version of Android 12 for Pixel phones has not been released yet. On Oct. 4 they released Android 12 for AOSP, but not for Pixel phones. Google said, on October 4, that the release for Pixels would be in a "few weeks'. So it should be coming soon.

Thanks for the heads up. I did a ton of google searching but couldn't find a damn thing. I guess it won't matter much after today anyway when I order my 6 Pro, lol. Thanks for the quick reply, very much appreciated.

One of the recent leaks suggested that the Pro version would have both in display fingerprint and face unlock. I guess we'll find out today if it's true. Not sure about Motion Sense though.
I don't use motion sense at all. And I fly about 150 legs a year, and as of right now obviously, I'm constantly wearing a damn mask, so face unlock has gotten to be a pain in the ass. I'm really looking forward to having a fingerprint again.

Well in your case it don't seem it don't to be very useful. I use motion sense every day for music and I am planning to unlock the bootloader and use an app to create more custom gestures for motion sense. Also, as I enjoy cooking this is very handy as I usually have dirty fingers 🤌

Is root available? Cant seem to figure out if magisk will work
Same here. I did patch the boot.img with Magisk v23 if anyone wants to give it a try (attached to this post).
Be careful as this is untested!! So make a backup before trying and let us know please!

    Yes. Stable Magisk 23.0 works just fine, just as it has on all the betas.

    Hey, so I am going to leave a link to developers that manage to get more functionality out of Motion sense, some will need root access though.
    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 3
    Link 4
    Link 5
    There are more stuff though most of them requiere you to have root access and for me that's actually imposible as the bootloader is locked by my carrier. Though I am working on a guide where I will leave every detail about how to unlock it from any carrier. Link to that thread here.
    The last link is the one that let's you create custom gestures if I am right, the others are for allowing to use motion sense on any region, use the motion sense api when creating an app and finally some of them bring more functionality to motion sense without root(I use this ones as my bootloader is currently locked by the carrier.
    Hope you find this useful! ;)
