Unlock Your Google Pixel
Brought to you by SunShine
dePixel8 is a free and unsupported project, this means that you should not ask our support staff for help.
dePixel8 is patched in Android 7.1.1 and newer, do not ask for future support or any kind of support.
Please do NOT contact our support in regards to dePixel8, it is an unsupported application and you will be ignored. Some of the Google Pixel phones are not bootloader unlockable, in particular models sold by carriers like Verizon and EE. Our hack, dePixel8, is designed to make unlocking the bootloader possible on those phones. If you like the work, please consider a donation to our preferred charity on the right or purchasing our software for your supported HTC or Motorola phones.
As a thank you to our loyal customers and supporters, we have chosen to release dePixel8 for free. We do kindly request that you do NOT redistribute dePixel8. When people redistribute our software, it makes it difficult to ensure people are using the latest version. Sometimes bugs happen, and often we fix them.
Our software works by forcefully enabling bootloader unlocking, it does not automatically unlock the bootloader. After using dePixel8, your device will reboot into bootloader mode. You then need to run the "fastboot oem unlock" command. This action will unlock the bootloader and wipe your user data.
This is for the Google Pixel/Pixel XL Only.
Running this on non-Pixel phones is pretty stupid.
dePixel8 is provided as-is with no warranty nor support, use at your own risk.
DO NOT RELOCK YOUR BOOTLOADER, unless you have restored it back to 100% stock and are sure you won't want it unlocked again.
Step 1) Install fastboot and adb on your PC, ensure both are working with your Pixel. We will not supply directions nor support for this; you can find many guides online that will help you on this step.
Step 2) Run "adb push dePixel8 /data/local/tmp", "adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/dePixel8" and finally run the program "adb shell /data/local/tmp/dePixel8"
Step 3) Wait for the phone to reboot to the bootloader. If it is not rebooting you can try to run various apps until it does, or you may have to reboot and start over.
Step 4) Issue the command "fastboot oem unlock", this will open up the unlock prompt and warning on the screen. You can now unlock. If you get an error, about unlocking not being allowed, start all over.
