Yeah, that's normal. 01 contains Android Framework patches and 05 contains vendor and kernel patches.No update yet, but at least:
Edit: And looks like two different security patch levels, unless a typo:

I still use 33.0.3. There are links at the top of the OP to it.What was the final decision on platform tools should we install latest? You changed the thread title for the "new bug" in platform-tools but i can't find the post text about it and whether we should stick with old reliable march version (also what command do i use to get platform tools version)
Is this problem still happening?
I've opted out of the beta, tried multiple gboard apks but none works other than base version. Any other keyboard from the playstore also works.Is this problem still happening?
I'm not on the 6 Pro - I'm on the 7 Pro, and I use Nova Launcher Prime normally, but I just launched the Pixel Launcher, since I opt to have an app icon for it, and I was able to search the Pixel Launcher's app drawer fine with Gboard version 13.0.07.528826899-release-arm64-v8a, from June 7, and there are no Stable Gboard updates available.
Are you opted into Gboard's Beta program, by any chance?
I'm on July Global Stable, but as I said, on the 7 Pro, so I don't know if there could be a 6 Pro-specific issue.
I was Googling to find anyone else who might have the same issue, and I found your Reddit post about it. I also found information about a similar issue from last year. About the only real applicable advice I see suggested there is:

Developer Support Android imagesif you want to find them.
fastboot reboot bootloaderafter and then
fastboot --set-active=otherto change slots in order to flash Android 13 to the new slot, but IF you have Android 13 on one slot and still have Android 12 (including Android 12 bootloader) on the other slot and you try to fully boot into Android 12, you will be permanently bricked and have to seek repair from Google. No one has yet found a way to repair this on our own. I will update if there is any progress. At least a small handful, and probably more, people have done this already.
fastboot flash bootloader --slot all bootloader-devicename-slider-1.2-3456789.img(change the name of the bootloader file to the one for your device), then you *should* be much safer than without doing that first. Also note that the bootloader is NOT the same as boot.img (kernel). The bootloader image file has "bootloader" in the filename.
Note that this is mainly for the officially listed "Unlocked" Pixel 6 Pro, available directly from the Google Store. All of this will also apply to any other (carrier-specific) variant of the Pixel 6 Pro which you can achieve an unlocked bootloader on. This includes T-Mobile and AT&T variants. It's likely Verizon variants will never be able to unlock their bootloader, or if so it will require paying the right person to do so.
Feel free to ask about general questions, but for anything that's specific to your variant, you should use one of the other already existing threads. You'll find Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile-related threads in those respective search results.
Keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader or rooting might affect your phone's capability to use banking apps such as Google Pay, your local bank's app, or even the ability to install some apps like NetFlix. See @Pekempy's thread Working SafetyNet with Pixel 6 Pro Android 12
There are no negative consequences if you unlock or re-lock the bootloader other than it will wipe your phone, and while unlocked you get a brief screen when you boot the phone telling you (and anyone who sees your phone at the time) that the bootloader is unlocked. You will also continue to receive updates (if you've merely unlocked the bootloader, you can take updates as normal) unlike Samsung, Sony, et cetera, which have permanent major consequences with reduced functionality even if you un-root and re-lock your bootloader. If you're actually rooted (not just bootloader unlocked), you'll have to perform extra steps to manually update each month, and to keep root/re-root.
All posts about Google Pay or banking will be reported to be deleted. Please keep this thread on-topic. There are at least one or two other How To Guide threads in this section in which folks discuss how to get around banking app restrictions when you're rooted or just have an unlocked bootloader. See @Pekempy's thread Working SafetyNet with Pixel 6 Pro Android 12
If users persist in discussing banking apps in this thread, I will have this thread locked and only update this first post when there is new and updated information regarding the subjects of the title of the thread: Unlocking the Pixel 6 Pro bootloader, rooting, and TWRP. See @Pekempy's thread Working SafetyNet with Pixel 6 Pro Android 12
Honorable mention to @Jawomo's aodNotify - Notification Light / LED for Pixel 6 Pro! (XDA link) / Notification light / LED for Pixel - aodNotify (Play Store link), which in my opinion restores useful functionality missing in most phones these days. It also solves some subjective issues some folks have with AOD (Always On Display), and/or solves/works around the problem where AOD is required for the optical fingerprint reader to work without the screen being on.
- You'll need this if you're going to unlock the bootloader on your Pixel 6 Pro: SDK Platform Tools (download links for Windows, Mac, and Linux). Note that you can find links to download the tools elsewhere, but I wouldn't trust them - you never know if they've been modified. Even if the person providing the link didn't do anything intentionally, the tools could be modified without them being aware. Why take a chance of putting your phone security further at risk?
- You can alternately use the tools from the SDK Manager, but most of us will want to stick to the basic tools-only without the complications of the full development manager.
- For Windows, get Google's drivers here Get the Google USB Driver (ADB will likely work while the phone is fully booted, but if you're like me, you'll need these drivers for after you "adb reboot-bootloader", to be able to use ADB and Fastboot.
- Thanks to @96carboard for posting the details of unlocking the bootloader, be sure to thank him in his post. Unlocking or locking the bootloader will wipe the device every single time, so be sure to have your data backed up before doing so, or better yet, just unlock it as soon as you get the device. Keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader or rooting might affect your phone's capability to use banking apps such as Google Pay, or your local bank's app. If you're going to re-lock the bootloader, make sure the ROM you have on your phone is completely stock (by flashing the latest official firmware) BEFORE re-locking it. My experience on my Pixel 1 was that there were no negative consequences if you unlock or re-lock the bootloader other than it will wipe your phone, and while unlocked you get a brief screen when you boot the phone telling you (and anyone who sees your phone at the time) that the bootloader is unlocked. All of this should still be the case. You will also continue to receive updates. Unlike Samsung, Sony, et cetera, which have major consequences with reduced functionality even if you un-root and re-lock your bootloader. If you're actually rooted (not just bootloader unlocked), you'll have to perform extra steps to keep root/re-root.:
The unlock process works like this:
1) Take brand new fresh phone out of box. Do NOT put sim card in it, just power it on (you can put a SIM card if you want, you just don't have to).
2) When it starts harassing you to join Google, hit "skip" and "remind me tomorrow" as applicable until you reach home screen. YOU DO NOT need to plug in a google account.
3) Settings --> About --> Build number. Repeatedly tap it until it says you're a developer.
4) Back --> Network --> WiFi and connect it.
5) Back --> System --> Developer --> OEM unlocking (check), USB debugging (check), plug in USB, authorize on the phone when requested.
Using the Platform Tools previously mentioned in command line/terminal:
6) #7) #Code:
fastboot flashing unlock
Now that you've unlocked it, it has been wiped, so repeat 1-4, then disable all the google spyware, and go ahead and start using it while waiting for aosp and root.
Official Instructions for Locking/Unlocking the Bootloader
Personally, I would always use the official drivers Google provides unless they just don't work for whatever reason: Get the Google USB Driver (this is for Windows). They work for me. They are rarely updated, but they are every once in a great while, sometimes years in-between.
I agree with this. be careful using drivers or adb/fastboot tools. Some are fine, but there's no need for it really anymore. Google has made it very easy to install drivers and Platform-Tools (adb/fastboot tool).
Google provides the Fastboot/ADB tool (Platform-Tools) and Google USB Drivers (adb/fastboot interface). This will allow any Pixel to interface with Windows using the fastboot/adb protocol. Official Google USB Driver includes support for both the Fastboot and ADB driver interface. There are 3 main drivers (Fastboot, ADB and MTP/Portable File Transfer). The MTP/Portable File Transfer driver is built-in to Windows 7-11.
Fastboot/ADB Driver Interface - Official Download Link:
When flashing a full image or unlocking your bootloader, the fastboot interface is being used.
First Download official Google USB Drivers (it's a zip file). Extract the zip (important!). Right-click on the android_winusb.inf file and hit install. You can then restart your phone to the Bootloader Screen (hold vol-down while it restarts or turns on). When you plug in your phone, Windows Device Manager will show a new device at the top: Android Device: Android Bootloader Interface.
Using the ADB interface: It's the same driver. Enable USB Debugging on your phone, then plug it in to your computer. A prompt will appear on your phone (to allow USB Debugging). The driver in Device Manager will appear as Android Device: Android Composite ADB interface.
Now you can download and use Platform-Tools to flash an Android Image, OTA or run adb/fastboot commands.
Official Download Page
"Android SDK Platform-Tools is a component for the Android SDK. It includes tools that interface with the Android platform, such as adb, fastboot, and systrace"
It's best to make Platform-Tools available system-wide. Download Platform-Tools from the above link and extract it to your C:\ drive - that way you will have a folder to add to the PATH Environment under Window System Properties Menu, Advanced, Environment Variables, System Variables, PATH (google how to do this, very easy). What this does is allow adb/fastboot commands to be run from anywhere in the system, so you don't have to be in the platform-tools folder to run adb/fastboot commands and flash an Android Image (Official or Android Fork such as ProtonAOSP).
I would guess that this should be the appropriate URL for official TWRP custom recovery for the Pixel 6 Pro, but who knows when/if that will actually be made available, and it may become available unofficially in these forum sections before being made official. I'll adjust this URL as needed. https://twrp.me/google/googlepixel6pro.html.
It's also handy to have to the full official firmware available, whether it's to recovery from accidents or for actual development. Note the official link to the general Factory Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices page. The following link goes directly to the Pixel 6 Pro (Raven) section: Pixel 6 Pro Factory Images. I prefer to actually bookmark a link to the device listed immediately below the device I want the firmware for, because Google dumbly (in my opinion) puts the latest firmware at the bottom of the list for each particular device, and that ends up making you scroll a lot after a year or two of monthly updates.
Note: You can still get the December 2021 Factory Images and OTA from this thread, if you need them for any reason: Alternate links to December - all full factory images and OTAs available
Back to modding!
- Use the latest Magisk Stable (in my case, I keep the app "hidden" / renamed)
- Used the full firmware zip, extracted to the same folder as the latest Platform Tools (S:\platform-tools)
- Extracted the new boot.img
- Copied new boot.img to the phone
- Patched the new boot.img with Magisk Stable
- Renamed Magisk'd boot.img so I know what version of firmware it's for
- Copied the Magisk'd boot.img back to the computer
- Disabled all my Magisk Modules
- Removed the "-w " from the flash-all.bat
- Re-edited the flash-all.bat to verify I saved it with the "-w " taken out
- Open a Command Prompt, navigated to S:\platform-tools
- adb reboot bootloader
- Let phone boot, unlock it, check that it's working, allow the update process to finish (gave it five minutes or so)
- adb reboot bootloader
- fastboot flash boot kernel.img (renamed Magisk'd boot.img)
- fastboot reboot
- Unlock, check everything's working
- Re-enabled the most basic Magisk Modules which I was sure wouldn't cause a critical issue
- Reboot, unlock, made sure everything's working
Used a factory image and booted into Android 13. Auto OTA and a sideload of the full OTA will end in the same result as both use
update_engine. I did boot into Android 13 so the ARB counter did get incremented.
