With Nougat rooting Android devices is harder than ever. Back in the day if a device was easily bootloader unlocked it meant rooting the same device would be as simple as flashing an existing supersu.zip. These days it takes a bit more work. Chainfire has been steadily working on rooting the Pixel. He posted a few updates on twitter today, and it looks like he is getting closer!
Re: Pixel root, disabling dm-verity on stock is problematic. Recompiling/patching, then 'system' root can work. Trying to find a better way.
Re: Pixel root #2: seems I can disable dm-verity after all. System-ish root possible with some tweaking. Still looking for a better way.
Hopefully we will have a root method in the coming days.
