What am I doing wrong?
Thank you very much.

You don’t say what version you are installing and what was on your phone previously, was it a Custom ROM, was it updated to the very latest stock ROM. I will attach some pages I have bookmarked.

The eOS installation instructions ask you to make sure your device is on the latest stock before installing e.

But latest stock for Pixels is android 12!

I don’t think that would work. E would need to be flashed over android 11 for best outcome I think.

I was on Stock ROM 10. With 11 it worked.
Thank you all for clarification.
