Points to note before spoofing your device to Pixel 3XL
- First of all, you will need a rooted Android device with Magisk v20.2+. Rooting your device will void your warranty and also has many risks associated with it
- This module is made for OnePlus 6. However, I tried this one a OnePlus 7 and Moto One Action and was successful in flashing it. But this doesn’t mean you will be able to get some (or any) level of success on your devices. If you wish, you could give it a shot, but it might give you a boot loop as well.
- If that happens, head over to the TWRP recovery. Then go to Advanced > File manager > data > adb > modules >PFLite. Then tap on the icon situated at the bottom right and select Delete. The module will be uninstalled and hopefully, you would be able to boot your device. Still facing issues? Check out our detailed guide on how to uninstall Magisk Modules using TWRP recovery.
With that said, here are the steps to spoof your Android device to that of Pixel 3XL.
In no manner whatsoever, TechNewsMax or any of its members will be held responsible if anything happens to your device. You completely understand the risks associated with it.
Spoof your Android Device to Pixel 3XL
- Open Magisk Manager on your rooted Android device.
- If you are having a OnePlus 6 device, head over to the Downloads section. Search for the Pixel Feature Lite MINIMAL module. It should be around 45KB in size (only!). Next tap on the Download icon and then on the Install option. Wait for a few seconds, the module will get flashed.
- For other users, download the PFLite.MINIMAL.v2.0.P3XL.zip module from GitHub and place it on your device. Now head over to the Modules section, tap on the plus icon, select that downloaded module and flash it onto your device (see above screenshot).
Once you have flashed that module, tap on Reboot to restart your device and activate that module.
