I don't think it is a connection problem because before using pixel 5 diag mode codes below it was giving "connection timeout error".

After applying those, it says SN fail. I also see qualcom com connections in ports in Windows device manager

adb shell
su
resetprop ro.bootmode usbradio
resetprop ro.build.type userdebug
setprop sys.usb.config diag,diag_mdm,adb
diag_mdlog

Hello

This error occurs when there is no connection between the phone and the application.
Please follow the steps carefully and make sure the driver is fully installed on the computer.

If the IMEI is changed, will the phone (Pixel 4XL specifically) continue to receive updates? If yes, then would it be safe to download and install those updates?

<Moderator Note>: "Repairing" an IMEI; i.e. restoring a device's original IMEI is legal. Changing your IMEI from the device's original IMEI is illegal in many countries, and is not allowed on XDA. I've removed the word "Change" from the thread title and one place in the OP.

Rule 9 of 📚 XDA Developers Forum Rules 📚:
9. Don't get us into trouble.

Don't post copyrighted materials or do other things which will obviously lead to legal trouble. If you wouldn't do it on your own homepage, you probably shouldn't do it here either. This does not mean that we agree with everything that the software piracy lobby try to impose on us. It simply means that you cannot break any laws here, since we'll end up dealing with the legal hassle caused by you. Please use common sense: respect the forum, its users and those that write great code.

Tested on Xiaomi M9T Pro (because my mobile operator activated some features only on specifc phones so I wish to fake another brand/model)
It always displays "FAIL". :-(
