Further down the road, we are trying to get CalyxOS running on lower-cost phones in order to bring it within reach of many more people, since the Google Pixel phones are both fairly expensive and difficult to obtain in many countries.

If you want to try CalyxOS at this time the first thing you have to do is get one of our supported phones and then follow these installation directions

*Note: In the USA there are two variants of the Google Pixel phones: The Google unlocked version, and the Verizon one. The Verizon one is unfortunately locked in such a way (boot loader locked) that you cannot install another operating system on it. The only way to tell is to attempt to unlock the bootloader of the phone. If you can enable "OEM unlocking" then it's an unlocked version. If "OEM unlocking" is greyed out and not toggle-able then you have the Verizon version.
