Pixel 2 Permission issue


Hi everyone!

I rooted my Pixel 2 using Max’s video/guide and it worked great! I was recently adding a permission to my “privapp-permissions-platform.xml”. I then rebooted and got a “android recovery” page. I get “try again” and “factory reset”. I went through with the fac reset thinking it would just wipe and fix my mess up in the perms file. Upon startup, I am spammed with “com.android.phone has stopped” and “system UI has stopped”. Then it shuts down. I have fastboot, and an unlocked bootloader. Can I flash a new rom onto it and start over? or any way to fix this issue would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!


Flash the factory image for it. It can be found here: https://developers.google.com/android/images
Before you do, open the flash-all.bat file (assuming you are using a windows machine) and remove the “-w” from the near the end of the script to avoid your phone being wiped.
