Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to root my device to flash QuantumOS?

No, however your phone needs to be unlocked.

Will I get OTAs after I flash PixelOS for future updates?

Yes for the following devices:

  • Pixel 2
  • Pixel 2 XL

Do I need to wipe my data to flash QuantumOS?

Please follow the flashing instructions carefully. In some cases we support upgrading without a data wipe.

However, if you are coming from a system other than QuantumOS, then most likely you would need to do a factory reset. If you are not sure, please email us via our Contact Us page.

Do you support rooted users?

We do not officially support rooted users as there isn’t a good way for us to guarantee the stability of the system when the device is rooted.

Can we use another recovery system other than Quantum Recovery?

TWRP is a popular recovery and we have provided flashing instructions if you are using TWRP on any of our supported devices. The instructions we have provided are device specific, so please make sure you read the instructions for your device.
