The "notch" sucks, end of story. If i wanted an iPhone, i would have gotten one.o_O
MaowDroid did the video on u-tube.
It was the video of how to install twrp on the phone.
Got the pixel dust rom up and running. Smooth.:p
I've got Jameson 12. If you get to South Florida, pm me. Just one question...If i want to unroot, sometime in the future, i just flash the latest...
Thank you all. I owe each of you a glass of Irish Whiskey. :D:p
Where do I get the magiskmanager.apk, and do I install it with twrp?
By the way, should i wipe the Dalvik cache?
Yes, it's installed. From the twrp installer i installed Magisk-v18.1 zip, and twrp-pixel 2xl-installer-taimen-3.3.0-0.zip. ES File Explorer is...
Got it, at least i believe that i got it. Root Checker says that it's not properly installed. I may only have temp root.
How do I get into the fastboot mode?
There must be something that you're not telling me because you're assuming that i must know it....but i don't.:(
Fastboot is still NOT being recognized!!!![ATTACH]
I did that. How do I get the twrp.img on the phone. I have Magisk downloaded on to the phone. Now it's fastboot that's holding me up.:(
At this rate, why don't i just send you the *****phone![ATTACH]
what are those few files, and i'll extract them and set up a "rooting folder"?
I did create a folder on my desktop. I unzipped the platform-tools folder and put it on my desktop.
The twrp i have is 3.3.0-0.
Think about this for a minute...When you start the rooting process, the first thing you do is unlock the bootloader. Then you get a pop-up message...
I was told that this root was much easier than the Nexus 6. I don't believe it. Two days now, and i'm still not rooted![ATTACH]
is that twrp.image sitting alone on the desktop, or is it put into the platform-tools folder?
got it, what's next?
Now, i'm totally lost![ATTACH]
Getting ready to try rooting again. Reminds me of the movie Groundhog Day. Just wondering why the answers i'm getting on this website, aren't...
