How to install Android 13?

If you are a developer and own a compatible Google Pixel device (see list above), you can install the latest version of Android 13 beta on a compatible smartphone now. Be careful though, because at this stage, installing Android 13 poses two difficulties. Firstly, you should be aware that the operation completely erases the contents of your smartphone – we therefore recommend that you back up everything before continuing.

Then, we are at this stage only at developer builds. This means that the most recent Android 13 ROM is still riddled with bugs and does not yet have all the features that will later be available during the public beta phase and then after the official release.

How to install Android 13 right now?

Here we resume the two methods described by Google to flash your Pixel with Android 13:

Install Android 13 with Android Flash Tool

Android Flash Tool is the easiest and most reliable way to install Android 13 beta on your smartphone. This tool works in the browser, and relies on WebUSB. It is therefore essential to go through Google Chrome, Chromium or Microsoft Edge – versions 79 and later.

Before proceeding, unlock your device and enable USB debugging in Developer Options. Once the feature is enabled:

  • Open your internet browser
  • Go to the Android Flash Tool page by clicking here
  • Connect your smartphone to the computer with a USB cable
  • follow the instructions

Install Android 13 manually

If for some reason Android Flash Tool does not work, Google also directly offers Android 13 ROMs to download for your Google Pixel – firmware that you can then completely install manually. As a prerequisite, you will need to install Android SDK Platform-Tools on your machine:

  • Download the Android 13 ROM for your model by clicking here
  • Open the downloaded file – a script flash-all.sh (Linux) flash-all.bat (Windows) is in the directory
  • Check that fastboot is accessible via your PATH settings
  • Connect your smartphone via USB cable
  • Open a Command Prompt / Terminal
  • Type adb reboot bootloader then Enter
  • Unlock the bootloader with this command: fastboot flashing unlock
  • Run the script flash all compatible with your platform
  • Once the ROM is installed, re-lock the bootloader for security with the command fastboot flash lock

Of course if you have any difficulties, just refer to the official Google help pages.

Note that if you are already on Android 13 Developer Preview, the update will be automatic, over the air (OTA). To check / force the launch of the update, just go to Settings > About phone > update.
