In response to the recent wave of Android 14-triggered rebooting Pixel phones, Google has released a “specialized solution” through the Pixel Repair Tool to address the issue. Users with impacted devices that are stuck in a repeated reboot cycle can now recover ‘partial data’ using this process, which also facilitates the installation of the official November system update.

The specialized solution mirrors the previously outlined form submission method, providing users with an alternative means to resolve the persistent reboot problem. Furthermore, this solution ensures that devices trapped in the repetitive reboot state can successfully receive and install the November system update.

To access the Pixel Repair Tool and attempt the process independently, Google is directing users to specific links based on their carrier and device model.

  • For AT&T (Pixel 6, 6 Pro, 6a) and all Japanese carriers (Pixel 7, 7 Pro, 7a, Fold), the tool can be found here.
  • For all other devices and carriers, users should visit this link.

For users who have already submitted the form to receive the November update, the Pixel Support team should have begun reaching out via the provided email address starting Monday, November 13. They will guide users through the data recovery process, which aligns with the aforementioned specialized solution. As the form submission period is now closed, individuals are urged to contact Pixel Support with any additional inquiries.

The November OTA update began rolling out on November 7 with a fix for the multi-user bug. Users who have not yet received the update can trigger it manually by navigating to Settings > System > System Update.

For any further questions or concerns, users are encouraged to reach out to Pixel Support for assistance.
