setprop sys.usb.config diag,diag_mdm,adb
diag_mdlog
Hi there,

Will doing this have any potential bad effects on my phone? I don't want to root it and suddenly lose access to online banking / OS updates / Pokémon GO, but I also really want 5G to work 😂

If you follow the tutorial for rooting your device you will not loose any access to your apps and if you follow this tutorial for enabling 5G nothing will go wrong.

That's weird. I have the international Pixel 5 (sub-6 only) and I have band 78 working to connect to my carrier's 5G network. I don't have the mmwave version Pixel 5 so I can't help you there, sorry.

Hi there!

Thank you for this tutorial. One question: will the procedure be the same in case physical and eSim are being simultaneously used?

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

I can confirm it works on both SIMs, physical and eSim. But, in order to get it working on the second (eSIM), another xml file must be edited in the same way as described in OP

file for second SIM is carrier_polixy.xml_Subscription01

SIM_00-SIM.jpegSIM_01-eSIM.jpeg

Cheers!

Wow, the video is so well done. Is there a guide like this to activate VoLTE and VoWi-Fi for Pixel 4? I have tried every guide/magisk module with no success for my Pixel 4.

Hello all!

Just checked that after flashing factory image with January '22 update, (data kept; removed de -w flag on fastboot command) both carrier_policy.xml files loose this configuration. That said, if you update this way, there is an extra step to take into account.
