Hi, can I install the customize roms, type:
PEP-raven-20220412-0120 PIXEL EXPERIENCE PLUS.zip
1) unlock the bootloader via adb commands (fastboot flashing unlock)
2) back to android 12.1 with april patch (now I'm on android 13 dp2) via pixel flasher
3) I select the rom and platform tools
4) I prepare the package
5) Flash Pixel Phone
I am attaching photos if I have selected everything correctly.
Unfortunately there is no one size fit all answer when it comes to custom ROMs, each ROM steps are specific to that ROM, some need custom recovery, and things done through custom recovery, some provide rooted boot, others don't, what partitions they write ...
That is exactly why advanced mode has that red warning, you'd have to follow the guides posted by the ROM maker and know what you're doing.
I'm almost certain that the options you have selected in your screenshot won't work, you have specified a custom ROM where you need to specify a factory image.
It is important that a true factory image is selected because PixelFlasher processes the contents of a Factory image, expects certain files in there, parses the scripts, extracts boot.img ...
I doubt that the custom ROM has the same fileset (ie full factory image along with flashing scripts), if it were, then probably the flashing guide of the ROM would have been just unpack and run the flash script.
I'll give you an example of statix_oriole-SNOWCONE-20220226-img.zip
This is an equivalent of image-oriole-sp2a.220405.004.zip (which is a file found inside the zip of the factory image), basically to flash this ROM, you follow the factory flashing steps (which would include flashing the bootloader and radio first) and then instead of flashing (update) image-oriole-sp2a.220405.004.zip you flash statix_oriole-SNOWCONE-20220226-img.zip.
The boot is not patched
But this is specific to this ROM, maybe others do the same thing, but you'd have to check their guides and understand the steps.
If you wanted to flash the statix ROM with PixelFlasher.
- You select Pixel firmware for your phone (example: oriole-sp2a.220405.004-factory-f560807e.zip for Pixel 6)
- You select the ROM next where its says Apply Custom ROM
- You choose if you want to patch or not
- Prepare package, then flash.
But please read the custom ROM guide, understand the steps.
