The beauty of Android is that users can customize their devices by flashing custom ROMs which can offer way more features than the regular OEM ROMs and can give users granular control over each aspect of the UI. To do this, you need a custom recovery tool and there is none better than TWRP Recovery.
Not long ago, TeamWin added the new OnePlus 6T to the list of TWRP-compatible devices and today, two more flagship handsets from the recent past have joined the party. As of this writing, TWRP Recovery is now available for the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL handsets.
Although tinkering with devices isn’t as popular as it used to be since OEMs have gotten better with their custom skins, there are still a bunch of users who love tweaking their device’s software experience and TWRP is the best and most used custom recovery tool out there to help users do so. For this reason, it’s great that the recovery tool is now available for both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL phones too. So, if you’ve been waiting to dive deep into customizing your Pixel 3/3 XL and trying out feature rich custom ROM’s, then now is the time.
Here are a couple of things not working with TWRP for the Pixel 3 devices:
- MTP does not work and only ADB works on the Pixel 3
- Currently, ADB does not work on the Pixel 3 XL
Make sure to keep the above in mind when deciding to use TWRP on any of your Pixel 3 devices.
