Thanks but I actually did install the official google drivers before using PF. I installed them in adb and bootloader. I used the root guide from this forum to unlock and root the device, though I did that on a different PC, but I did install the drivers since I knew that was necessary. You think unistalling and reinstalling would help? The only two modes are adb (when phone is on) and bootloader right? Or am I missing something?I see that you have other devices
Uninstall the current adb / fastboot drivers from your system, and install the official ones from Google.
You need to put the device in the various modes adb / fastboot ... to be able to install the drivers for that mode, doing on adb alone is not enough.
When your other devices are properly identified under "Portable Devices" for adb, and as "Android Bootloader Interface" for bootloader.
Then plug your Pixel and see how it gets identified as it looping
right, as far as I know, two modes.Thanks but I actually did install the official google drivers before using PF. I installed them in adb and bootloader.

Ivmanaged to get into fastboot mode with my pixel 7 by letting the battery drain which took the phone out of the bootloop and then voldown + power when plugging in the charger. How shall I proceed now?
@badabing2003 I managed to fix the device! Did a full wipe and flash trough PF after getting into fastboot
This is excellent, good job.
I did setup my phone already again. Rooted it etc. Can I still flash to the inactive slot without losing my data again? Thanks for the help
Don't do that, the only time you want to re-lock the bootloader is if you want to set the phone to stock factory mode, either to get out of the modding game or return / sell the phone.
@badabing2003 Do you typically use the Canary version of Magisk?? I just use Stable, but was curious how other versions are working.The only way I know is by reading the release notes and see if it is something that you want / need.
It doesn't get updated that often anyways.
You can easily check the release notes in PF, by clicking on install Magisk, but not necessarily installing it, when you select the version, the bottom pane shows the release notes

Sound like an issue with Magisk Alpha or a conflict with one of the modules.I've been using this Magjsk Alpha for over a year without issuses on Samsung devices and it run fine on Pixel too until today when I decided to update it from 44643ad7-alpha (25205) to 6ecc04a4-alpha (25206) and it ended up in a bootloop.
Galaxy Tab S8+ with 6ecc04a4 works but Pixel doesn't. Magisk & LSPosed modules without the red X were installed on Pixel.
I would disable modules.
This worked thanks a lot to you, @badabing2003, @Homeboy76 , @Lughnasadh and everyone else who tried to help.
Did you allow root access for "[SharedUID] Shell" (com.android.shell) in Magisk? That's used by PF to detect root.Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out how to use pixel flasher.
My P7pro is rooted with verity and verification disabled. But, PF does not recognize my device to be rooted. So, my question is how do I get PF to recognize root and to update + retain root and verity & verification left disabled?
Actually OTA can be flashed in PF, but you will not retain root.
if the phone is showing to be in fastbootd modeYou reminded me I need to get some canned pressurized air My laptop is less than a month old so it's not the dust, but I definitely need to have those canned air handy!
That's a good tip to keep in mind. If I run into the same situation—spinning beach ball, PixelFlash is hung and not responding—would it be safe to try un/replugging? Typically I'd worry un/replugging the phone will interrupt the flash and causing some unpredictable problems/bricking.
Like @JakeDHS07 said, these options are already in PixelFlasher.So, if you read the post on the krisakura kernel in the p7p forums, he notes the steps needed including disable verity and such.
The power hint module isn't very important as it can be flashed later, however the kernels themselves for this phone have to do a special workaround with each run.
A possible resolution would be to enable the --disable-verity and other flags as an option in your application.
I just came back over from iphone so admittedly I personally am a bit out of date as I haven't had an android since the pixel 3. I wish I could offer your more assistance!
