I am using cortex rom and decided to go back to pn 7.1.2. I wiped data, cache, system and all fhe good stuff and flashed the PN rom, beans gapps and vendor. I get an error saying that cannot flash vendor. And then then when i boot it to system. It doesn't go past the google screen. I flashed cortex back again and it works and all. I read that i should be able to flash a custom ROM if I do a clean wipe. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Are you flashing vendor to the vendor partition? And is it the corresponding image for the PN version?
...just checking

Yes, everything i have is from PN. And I'm flashing it through twrp in the vendor partition. Don't have my laptop on me so can't use fastboot.

I'd recommend trying to download the vendor image again and verify the checksum. As long as the vendor image file is correct and being flashed correctly, TWRP should be able to flash it, no matter what ROM you're using.

Have a good one!

Thanks, I'll try it again and let you know.
So it the ROM not booting coz of fhe vendor image? Coz I don't think that's the reason. If the vendor is incorrect it'll still boot and tell you to flash it. But mine doesn't boot, doesn't go past the google screen.

Some people have reported problems with booting when the vendor is wrong. If you still have issues with booting after successfully flashing the correct vendor, you may need to try a full wipe (including internal) because sometimes those files left behind in internal can get it the way (remember to backup first). You could also try flashing to stock 7.1.2 before flashing TWRP, PN and GApps again, but hopefully this wouldn't be necessary.

Ok, I'll try downloading the vendor image when i have my laptop with me so if something goes wrong during flashing i will be able to do something about it.
Cheers.

Yeah, the higher-ups *cough* @matt4321 *cough* suggested I keep it, so I'm just gonna let it rock. Maybe all the way to this coming holiday season. =D
Well, I suppose if you glue a red heart to your pom-pom and pull out (or break) all the lights that aren't red, you will be ready for Valentines day. Maybe even pose the reindeer like they are mating (if they aren't already) with a sign that says "love is in the air". :D

Hey,

This is completely OT but does anyone know how to get a (new or like new) Pixel 2 XL (128 GB preferably) for a good price AND with a good screen? I've tried Swappa but it seems like no seller wants to ship outside the US (which baffles me in 2018 and seems kinda silly to me...).

I'm also looking at Ebay but most auctions don't mention the screen at all and people don't seem to be aware of the problems. Any idea guys?

Directly from Google would be your best bet since you've tried Swappa and Ebay to no avail... I've also read somewhere that Google is offering financing with the monthly payments very similar to what the carriers are offering-- And purchasing through Google ensures that you will have the most important feature available to us- bootloader unlock...

Unfortunately, Google doesn't sell Pixel phones where I live (France). And honestly, I'm not spending $1000+ on a phone, no matter how much I love Android. Not worth it.

    New 7.0 Build with some more features, and some fixs, i am aware that 7.1.0 has dropped(pixel development branch) however it is not the final 7.1 and would be unstable as it stands right now(no kernel source, no gapps, etc). so i am going to stick with 7.0 until the final 7.1.1 source is live for stabilitys sake :)

    Also i have taken over support of banks gapps and rebranded them as just "Dynamic Gapps" mini & full, mini is the traditional banks gapps, and full is purenexus gapps

    ok, Lets get to the goodies!!
