How to Root Google Pixel XL Easily.




Rooting your Google Pixel XL didn’t turn out to be as simple as we initially thought. And that’s mostly because of the weird and never-seen-before partition structure on the Pixel phones. These phones feature two system, two boot, two vendor, zero recovery, and zero cache partitions. So naturally, any existing rooting tool would have required a bit of re-engineering.

The newly released SuperSU systemless root for Pixel are not be flashed with the work-in-progress TWRP builds for the devices, because that will simply not work. Chainfire has provided CF Auto Root packages for both and Pixel with a modified boot that you do not have to flash, but BOOT via fastboot boot command from the command line.


Also, since the process includes rooting Pixel XL phones using fastboot commands, you need to unlock bootloader on your Pixel XL phone first to be able to use fastboot commands. If you’re on a non-verizon Pixel phone, unlocking the bootloader is done the traditional way.

* Important:

»» Important Note:

Chainfire’s systemless root for Pixel and Pixel XL is different because of the odd partition layout on the device. So don’t be surprised if certain or all your root apps don’t work at the moment on your rooted Pixel because the new SuperSU root mounts root at /system_root instead of /system as previous SuperSU root builds did.

What this means is that app developers will need to update their apps going forward to be compatible with the new systemless root method. And until the apps are updated, you won’t be able to use them on your rooted Pixel phones.
