Every time I try to flash DotOS on my 3aXL it gets stuck in booting and never finishes, forcing a restart completely wipes Dot from the device and goes back to whatever os was on the phone previously.
Is this an issue with Dot or am I doing this wrong?

    Nice! Downloading now.
    Im curious, what needed to be changed/tweaked to make this build for the Pixel 3a XL? Did you grab the latest source for dotos and patch a few files that needed fixing, or some other method?

    Either way, thanks for the submission - it's pretty smooth!

    Pixel 3a and 3aXL are unified almost. So you just need few different files device side, device vendor, kernel is unified across 3,3xl,3a,3aXL

    There are no major changes needed from 3a to 3aXL. Also as when it goes official, you will be able to see device sources used to make this rom and with ota support.
