Bebochekov, 10 Sep 2021Factory reset it. Most likely this will fix the issue, but I reported this as they should have checked obvious ones and qa internally first, before pushing the update. Just shows that qa is quite poor. Will wait for the final then full reset, otherwise is just such a hassle in configuring the device plus installing and configuring all apps.

At a glance is not working at all. It was already not working despite multiple feedbacks and now is just completely not working. All is literally blank when going to configuration. Come on Pixel team, fix it finally.

Everyone would simply expect the Pixel phones to have the best optimized software out of all Android phones in the world because Google would have developed its own OS to be perfectly matched to the phone's hardware, but somehow even Samsung's One UI feels more streamlined.

The beta thing of google has now became irritating, Before there were good handful of beta and there was excitement for new version launch because they didn't stretched this dp and beta thing and launch stable in August itself, Now it's like dp1 dp2......beta 1 beta 2 beta 3.... And so on and this beta 5 was out of the blue they stretched this too far instead of releasing stable.

Shanti Dope, 09 Sep 2021Last chance to brick older Pixels as well?It doesn't seem to matter to me much since there is an abundance of stable custom ROMs, including the deGoogled ones like GrapheneOS and CalyxOS, to play with.
