Note: Make sure you take a complete backup of all important files on your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL before attempting to root your device.

Since Google Pixel 2 XL users have encountered various problems on its display such as blue tint, poor color production and screen burn-in, early reviewers of the smartphone have claimed that its OLED screen is of mediocre quality.
