Are you using Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL and facing the bootloop issue after installing a Magisk module? Here in this guide, we have shared the step-by-step process in order to fix Pixel 4 Bootloop after installing a Magisk Module (No TWRP Required). As the TWRP is not available right now for Pixel 4/4 XL, interested users can root their Pixel 4 series devices using Magisk. Now, after rooting your phone and installing a Magisk Module, you may see that your device isn’t booting.
In that case, you don’t even have TWRP Recovery installed on your phone to fix the issue. Fortunately, there is a fix available for this issue that you can follow from below. In order to fix the bootloop issue on your Pixel 4/4 XL device, you have to boot your device into the Magisk Core-Only mode. Now, in this mode, your device will boot up and then you can easily disable or uninstall the Magisk Module from the installed Magisk Manager app.
Thanks to the XDA Recognized Contributor Tulsadiver for sharing the boot image files. Before going to the booting process, first of all, you will have to download the boot image file and follow the pre-requirements below.
- Magisk Core-Only Image: Download for Pixel 4 | Download for Pixel 4 XL

- This is for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL devices only. Don’t try on other devices.

- Now, move the Magisk Core-Only Image file to the PC.
- You have to boot your device into Fastboot mode.
- Press and hold Volume Down + Power button together until the Fastboot menu appears. (If bootloop issue continues, press and hold the Volume Down button to boot into Fastboot)
