Chiming in here to say I’ve successfully flashed phh’s latest Feb patch level AOSP 11 GSI (system-roar-arm64-ab-vanilla). It was pretty straightforward:
- Unlock bootloader
- Reboot into fastboot, and then again into fastbootd
- Flash system image -
fastboot flash system image.img
fastboot -w <-- I ran this three times (one extra for luck)
I was concerned that I’d have vbmeta issues, but that didn’t cause any problem for me.
Otherwise things seem to work well with the device. UI navigation and effects don’t seem as fluid, so I wonder if there are GPU acceleration issues going on (or if it’s even using hardware rendering?). Fingerprint scanner works, camera works. I haven’t tested it on cellular yet but I’m not very concerned. Overall huge success!
No such luck… I spent a good hour configuring the system, playing around with it, and decided I no longer needed Root. I pressed the “Securize” option in settings which rebooted, and now it’s stuck at the initial boot screen (“Orange State” message with Powered by android at the bottom). Reflashing doesn’t seem to help either… It’s just stuck. Bummer.
