Easily Unlock the Bootloader and Root the Pixel 2 with SkipSoft Toolkit
SkipSoft is a unified Android toolkit for Nexus, Pixel, Samsung and OnePlus devices that has the ability to do things like gain root access, backup and store applications, download stock images and much more. SkipSoft has now been released for the Google Pixel 2 courtesy of XDA Retired Senior Moderator mskip and you can download it right away. Drivers for your device can be installed directly from the toolkit, but you will need to have ADB and Fastboot tools set up on your computer before you begin tinkering with SkipSoft.
