Pixel 6 series users are experiencing a new issue that bricks devices following a factory reset.
The issue seems to affect all three models in the lineup, and it’s not limited to a particular Android release.
Google seems to be aware of the issue but has yet to release an official statement.

Several Google Pixel 6 series users have recently reported facing an issue that bricks their device while performing a factory reset. The issue seems to affect all three devices in the lineup irrespective of whether they’re running the latest stable update or an Android 15 beta build.

According to user reports on Reddit and Google’s support forums (via TechIssuesToday), affected Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a models fail to boot after attempting a factory reset and show different error messages during boot. While some report seeing an error saying that the device “cannot load Android system,” others have highlighted an error that says the device is “unable to enable ext4 verity” because it’s missing a “tune2fs” file.
