Step 1: Install Android SDK

To start off, install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC or computer. It’s the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google. You should download it and extract it to a convenient location on your PC. Doing this will give you the necessary platform-tools folder.

Step 3: Boot your Pixel device to Fastboot mode

You’ll now need to boot your device to the Fastboot Mode. In most scenarios, as soon as your device is soft-bricked, it’ll automatically get booted to Fastboot. If your smartphone is booted in a boot loop, then allow it to drain the battery so that your phone gets powered off. After that, connect your phone to the charger, and as soon as you’ve done so, press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys. Your smartphone will now be booted to Fastboot.
