Android 11 developer preview software is now accessible for Pixel 2 and later models. However, users may find it hard to install the new feature since the idea of flashing their device to install the OS can be intimidating. According to The Verge's previous report, since the steps differ slightly depending on what phone or computer the user is going to use to install the software, the process might be a tricky one.

To help the users have an easy installation process, Google has streamlined the steps on how to download the Android 11 developer preview software. A web application called Android Flash Tool, which handles most of the steps of flashing for its users, was recently released by Google.

The Verge provided some easy steps for Android users, although Google's tool basically removes most of the complexity and hassle of the installation. According to the report, there are a few important notes that users should remember.

The user's Android device will get all the future developer preview and beta updates over the air once it is installed. Users won't have to flash their phones again when new builds of Android 11 are launched; they just need to fetch an update from the system settings.

Users should also be reminded that they need to perform the installation at their own risk since the software is still unfinished, which could lead to malfunctions in their devices. All the data from the device could possibly be deleted, depending on the settings that the users adjust in the Android Flash Tool.

Step 1: Users must activate three settings on their Android device

First, users need to activate the Developer Options menu on their device. If they're using Android 8, they need to click the System option. If their device is running Android 7, they need to scroll down to "About Phone" then look for "Build Number." To enable this, they need to tap the options several times. They then need to turn on the USB debugging system by going to "Settings," "System," and then "Advanced Developer Options." Lastly, OEM unlocking must be turned on, which is also part of the Developer Options Menu.

Step 2: Users need to connect their Android phones to the computer

First, they need to connect their device to the computer using a USB cable, and then go to the page at the Android Developers portal. Users must choose the URL which is listed next to the device they're using. Once they reach the "Get Started" option, they need to click the "OK" button. Once successful, they need to click the "Add new device" option. A request that says "Allow USB debugging?" will appear on the screen. They need to check the box stating "Always allow from this computer." After the user is done with the process, the device should now be connected to the Android Flash Tool.
