The Google Pixel is one of the hottest Android phones on the market right now. The device certainly is a far cry from what Google started a few years ago with the Nexus brand, but there’s no doubt that the phone is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ones that currently exists. T-Mobile recently announced that they’d cut the unlocked price of the phone in half if you use the phone on their network, so if you’ve been waiting to get one, now might be a better time than ever.
Not just anyone though. ultra-popular developer Chainfire to be exact. Chainfire took to Twitter to share a picture of a Superuser request layered over the home screen of his Pixel, but there’s a one rather important caveat to be aware of with the way that Chainfire went about rooting it. As it stands, DM-verity needs to be disabled in order for root access to work on the phone. We’ve been reassured that Chainfire’s working on a solution to get this kink worked out, but do keep that in mind before setting out to root your own device.
