Pixel 2 XL (Taimen) Testing Results
After trying multiple times using the Macbook air ports. I tried a different setup. Used an external USB/USB C dock (Dell Universal Dock D6000) with a USB C to USB C cable connected to the phone.
So Macbook Air (2013) -> Dell Universal Dock -> Pixel 2 XL.
And when trying the script it finally worked!

Now on to testing capabilities. Thanks for all your help and input. @Flohack recommendation to try different host ports helped!

Congratulations bro... Can you please make a short youtube Tutorial of Installing Ubuntu Touch on Pixel 2XL and its a short Review..
@atomos Cellular currently should work but no call audio in fact, no audio at all on the whole device... .Working on it
@atomos Is the modification adding files or replacing them? Because with a replace I will have a hard time. Ofc I can add files if they are needed, or merge configs etc
@flohack I can confirm no audio on whole device.
no replacing, just add ".mbn" files and lines of configs.
not working yet, in android OS, need do factory rest.
l'll format my phone reinstall ut, do more test.
@atomos Ok if you link me to a zip file and instructions I might be able to include that in the vendor partition
carrier option is aways set to None. even I had selected my SIM card's carrier(CHN-CT), no lucky with your vendor.img.
so I back to Android 9, lineageOS17.1, all of them works fine.
in android OS(8.0-11.0), its supported CHN-CT(with 3g), mod vendor.img can supported 3g, LTE, VoLTE. just need copy files from other android phone with Snapdragon 835.
@atomos Well modem doesnt work at all on the device, not specific to your country. I will try to work on it, gimme some time ^^
This post is deleted!
thanks. I will test other things first.
I upload CHN-CT supported files, with simple declaration in zip, you can download from here:
