This post will help you out of your problem with installing stock firmware on Google Pixel. Every single build of firmwares for nexus and pixel devices are fully uploaded by Google, so it should be easy to get the hang of restoring or unbricking to original firmware for your Google Pixel even though your device is stuck on the boot screen with dots. All you need is to prepare and download the stock firmware, and then flash the images with the flash-all.bat file provided in the package or you can use fastboot commands to flash them one by one.
There are a few things that you need to prepare in advance:
1. Ensure your Google Pixel has an Unlock Bootloader on it. If you have a Verizon Google Pixel, follow this step to unlock the bootloader on your phone since Verizon phones tend to be more complicated if users want to restore to stock and update to newest version.
2. Download the factory image for your phone with this link
3. When you restore to stock and unlock the bootloader, all of your data on your phone will be erased so make sure that you backup your data and apps. If you want to keep your settings and apps to remain after flashing the factory images, then do this: extract the downloaded firmware zip file, edit the flash-all.bat file with NotePad++, and remove the -w from the script.
4. Enable USB Debugging and OEM unlocking. You need to do:
Settings > About Phone > Build number > Tap it 7 times to become developer.
Settings > Developer Options > enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking.
5. Download and install Minimal ADB and Fastboot Setup on computer and remember the file installation path as you will use it later.
6. You also need to install the latest google USB drivers on your computer.
7. Finally, make sure your phone battery is above 70%.
