Thanks for posting this, i came here looking to ask if it would work and saw this.
I went ahead with the install/flashing and was successful using
I got a new Pixel XL marlin with factory Oreo on it and followed the /e/ instructions. I had issues (more on that later.)
My current problem is with the recovery.
I have to boot if from my PC using fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-3-marlin.img.
When I install twrp-installer-3.3.1-3-marlin.zip, twrp reports successful install on both slots. but it fails when I try to boot to recovery.
After starting twrp from an image file, I can install /e/ and /e/ works beautifully. But then booting into recovery brings up the LineageOS recovery. If I then install the twrp zip, then /e/ doesn’t start (forever bouncing ‘e’ and the phone gets hot.)
So it seems I can either have /e/, or twrp installed, but not both.
Without twrp, will the OTA updates work?
I’ve tried several versions of twrp.
I’ve not encrypted the phone.
Going around in circles on this all day while searching for new info. Any ideas are appreciated.
Regarding the install instructions (doc.e.foundation/devices/marlin/install) I encountered 2 big deviations. The bootloader would not unlock as written, and the instructions for installing twrp are contrary to TeamWin’s instructions at twrp.me/google/googlepixelxl.html (Perhaps attempting to flash twrp using fastboot caused my current problem?)
On the reboot page after installing twrp, it asks if you would like to install the Official TWRP app. If I deselect both options, then everything works fine - rebooting into twrp and booting into /e/.
It is repeatable.
-Don’t select installing twrp app, then /e/ runs fine.
-Select installing the twrp app, then /e/ fails - stuck at bouncing /e/ continuously writing large volume to log; but it does respond to adb commands (reboot.)
Also, installing twrp version 184.108.40.206 never works - the phone just goes black when booting to recovery. I have to hold the power button for like 20 seconds to wake it up. I’ve tried several 3.3 versions and they seem fine, as long as I don’t let them install the twrp app.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong?
Anyway, all seems to be working well with twrp 220.127.116.11 and e-0.10-p-2020080666687-dev-marlin.
