This is a factor controlled on the developer end and you can not bypass it. To make sure that this process works perfectly for you, ensure that your device is powered by a mediatek chipset. Usually all mediatek chipsets are represented as MTXXXX where the XXXX denotes the model number of the chipset.
However, if you want to install a custom ROM, you can choose a version of Android that matches your device’s model number and manufacturer. Some custom ROMs are even different operating systems. A Bootloader (or HBoot) is the first checkpoint in the boot (or start) of the OS. It is responsible for checking the security of both the hardware and the software while a device boots up.
When you are sure that the problem stock Android firmware is with the software and factory reset also didn’t help, it’s time to install stock firmware on Google Pixel. In the next step select the extracted firmware files (done in step-3) corresponding to each buttons in the odin app. For example click on button “CP” and select the extracted firmware file which starts with “CP“. Same way click on “AP” and and select the extracted firmware file which starts with “AP“. If you want to factory reset while you install stock firmware select the file which starts with “CSC” file for the CSC button, otherwise, load the “HOME_CSC” instead. Make sure F.Reset.Time and Auto Reboot option are the only ones checked in the Odin’s “Options” tab. The other reasons you might need to install stock firmware include a bootloop, where your phone cannot load the operating system.
Lock the bootloader, and you’ll be completely back to normal. And where they are available, they’re also more difficult to install than either of the other methods we’ve outlined. Some require a manual approach using the ADB and Fastboot tools with the command line. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the three main ways to get back to stock Android. Whether that means going fully unrooted with a locked bootloader or just reverting to the stock ROM but keeping root access, you’ll find an option that works for you. The daily builds of the ROM are based on Chinese MIUI beta firmware packages and have further been localized for the international markets.
