Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

For many, a phone is a black box filled with apps, connectivity, and no small part of modern tech magic. But for the technically inclined (like enthusiasts and developers), the intricate operations that keep us knee-deep in apps and services are well understood, and access to specifics like kernel sources and factory images helps tremendously when it comes to rooting, ROMing, and device-targeted development. So it's a good thing Razer pushed out both factory images and kernel sources for its most recent flagship, the Razer Phone 2.

Unfortunately, functional patches this month don't seem to include fixes for any of the recent Pixel 3 issues just yet.

Today is the "official" launch date of Google's latest flagship phones, so naturally, there are Pie factory images to go along with them. You can download images and OTA files for both the Pixel 3 and 3 XL onGoogle's developer site.

There are two downloads each for the Pixel 3 (Blueline) and Pixel 3 XL (Crosshatch). There's a regular software build and one intended for Verizon phones. Over on the OTA page, you get the same setup with Verizon and standard builds (these won't do you much good right now).
