Well just got my BRAND NEW 128GB Verizon Pixel to replace my 32GB version. Unfortunately, the 128GB became available during 7.1.1, so therefor i am screwed. Tried booting with my TMO SIM and OEM UNLOCKING was greyed out and on 7.1.1. I did however get a 128GB device. Sorry for the bad news...
There is a guy unlocking Verizon bootloader pixel XL smail amzdak does it remote, look him up on Facebook.?Consider me in the boat as well, a victim of the locked boot loader Verizon model
Inform me if a way was found to unlock its bootloader .
Would be grateful.
Honestly I think he's getting a hard time from Google. I'm sure he would rather collect the over $1,000 bounty. Extremely nice and helpful guy.
