The great failure of Google with its Android updates that nobody would have imagined 1

Android is the leading mobile operating system in Spain, and among the wide variety of devices available on the market, the Google Pixel is the recommended option if you want to be up-to-date in terms of system updates, not only for durability, but for a great consistency in the updates.

The day an update arrives, all compatible Pixels receive it, regardless of age. This means that, thanks to their ease and frequency with updates, they are mobile phones that are always updated to the latest version.Or that was what Google thought, and it seems that a small detail was left aside.

Upgrading from Android 9 to Android 11, the fatal mistake that no one would have contemplated

Normally, thanks to its fame for updates, we might think that Pixel users usually have their phones completely updated, or so practically all of us believed, since it seems that there are users willing to buy a Pixel, whose interest in updates is much more calm than the rest of users.

In this way, it seems that an error has been discovered with the Google Pixel 3A, a mobile that apparently has an error in the OTA update system, and it is that if you try to update to Android 11 from Android 9, a fatal error will occur.

If you try to update from a Pixel 3a with Android 9 directly to Android 11, it will hang for several minutes on the loading screen until it enters a state ofbootloop, constant reboots that will end with a message indicating that the update has not been possible, according to several users in the Google help forums.

The truth is that it seems a very rare problem, since what is expected is that a user of a Pixel 3a the most normal thing at this point would be that they had already updated to Android 10, and it may have been the reason why when doing the tests this particular use case was omitted.

Beyond users who decide to update versions of Android from 2 to 2, it rather seems a case of users who have just bought their Pixel 3a and who are still with the previous version of Android. In any case, if for some remote circumstance you find yourself in this situation, the failure only occurs with the OTA update, and it is still possible to install the versions through ADB.
