Video Description
Google recently released the first developer preview of Android 13 and in today’s video I’ll be showing you how to install it on a supported Pixel smartphone using Google’s Android Flash Tool on the web. This process is similar to the regular ADB/Fastboot method except that Google has removed all of the command line work and built a website to handle the messy parts.

Before we can begin this guide, though, we first need to have some things set up ahead of time. For example, if we are to flash any firmware using this method we first need to have the bootloader unlocked.

So if you haven’t done that yet, pause here and follow my previous video where I show you how to do exactly that. I’ll even include a link in the video description to make it easy for viewers to find that tutorial.

Let’s go ahead and enable USB Debugging Mode too as that will allow our PC to send commands to our smartphone to begin the flashing process.

It’s also advised to back up as much of your data as you can before you do any of this. Both unlocking the bootloader and manually flashing firmware images will result in the loss of the data on your smartphone. So make sure your important data has been backed up first.

And finally, we’re just going to load up the Android Flash Tool website in Chrome on our desktop.

After selecting the device, and the firmware we want to install, click the blue button to begin the process and wait patiently while the firmware is downloaded, extracted, and manually flashed to your Google Pixel smartphone.

When the Google Pixel device reboots, you’ll be taken to the Android activation screen where you can set up your device like you normally would.

Remember, this isn’t even a beta release yet. This is a Developer Preview so there are bound to be some bugs here and there.

Be sure to report any issues you may notice to Google using the feedback app provided in the update. The more bugs Google is made aware of the more stable the Android 13 DP1 update will be upon release.
