How to enter flash mode

The Pixel 3 XL, like all Google Pixel/Nexus devices, uses Fastboot as the flashing protocol.

To enter Fastboot mode, hold Volume Down while powering on the device. Let go of Volume Down when "Fastboot mode" displays on the screen.

Installation

Status

The kernel boots, the rootfs flashes and mounts, and ssh works. However, the device is not ready for merging yet, due to these issues:

  • The device uses 4096 byte sectors instead of 512 byte sectors, and requires a change in pmbootstrap to generate and flash images.
  • Screen only works in Plasma Mobile; doesn't work with boot splash, FDE, or Weston
  • USB doesn't have correct idVendor/idProduct, since this kernel is more strict regarding the formatting.

This breaks USB network when developing using VirtualBox USB passthrough: attaching the device to the VM works, and I can ssh into the device from the VM, but detaching doesn't work properly.
