Google Pixel 2XL Hard Reset from Recovery

Google Pixel 2XL 

Locked out and need to bypass the lockscreen on your new Google Pixel 2XL? Well here's how to do it, be warned this method will delete everything and you will need your logins to the Gmail that was on the phone to regain access. If you do not have the logins you will be locked out of the phone! Do not blame me for losing data or not know these logins it is not my fault if you skipped over this and went straight to the instructions.... 

  • Turn off your Pixel 2/Pixel 2XL
  • Once the device is off press the Volume Down and Power buttons together and keep holding till the Android logo appears.
  • Using the Volume buttons highlight the Recovery Mode. Now use the Power button to select it.
  • You will see an Android image. You need to hold the Power Button for two seconds. While you hold on to the Power button press the Volume Up button together with it. Release the Volume Up button after 3 seconds and but don’t let go of the Power button.
  • Hold on to the Power button till your screen shows Android image displaying No Command. Let the Power button go off when you see this screen.
  • Using the Volume Buttons highlight Wipe Data/Factory Reset and use the Power button to confirm the selection.
  • Next use the Volume Down button to scroll and select Yes, delete all user data and once again use the Power button to make the selection.
  • Your Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL devices will clear all the settings and personal data and restore your device to its original settings.
  • Once the process is complete you will have to select Reboot System Now in order to restart your phone.
