There are two types of smartphone users today. Some users tend to live with the official updates given out for their device, the other group tend to do a lot of experiments with their devices. It is true that experiments like installing a custom ROM can highly improve the usability of smartphones. Thinks are easy and with fewer hurdles for Android devices. The Android developer community is also active and they do provide a lot of new custom ROMs and recovery to try with different devices. But the one thing which stops people from doing this is the fear of getting the device bricked. Bricking of the device can occur even if you make a small mistake during the process. But in some cases, the bricking won’t be permanent and you can simply recover the device back to normal. If you have bricked or have a fear of bricking your Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, here is a guide on How to Unbrick the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.
The developer community of Android has been active for a very long time. While the Nexus devices from Google were on the market, those were the favorite devices for most developers. But when Google shifted to the Pixel lineup, things seem to be a bit different. While Google started to focus more on security, they were forced to make limitations for developers on their Pixel devices. This had made Pixel devices less developer friendly, and it also increased the chances of getting the device bricked. But still, there are developers who take the risk on bricking and do experiments with the device. If you are one among them, it is good that you know the steps to Unbrick the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.
