Yes it can be unlocked with the standard bootloader unlocking instructions for pixels. We are working on LineageOS for it, currently the repos have already been forked to the primary organization. We are just doing the finishing touches to it before it will go official.
No need for rooting or flashing a new ROM. You can easily have ad-free youtube with Smart Tube Next. All you *should* need is the SmartTubeNext apk from github, a USB OTG cable with power, a USB stick, and a file explorer from the play store. Navigate to the USB stick and install the apk. Allow sideloading when it asks you. Log in and enjoy. Netflix should be available on the stock ROM.Can anybody help me run Magisk on the standard OS? It would be nice to have Netflix and also to be able to install some kind of ad-free YouTube. Has anybody done this yet? Anybody working on it?
I'm a noob to all this but if anybody would like to help me, I would love to try and get Magisk working.
