OK I've compared and I can't see anything major. The only thing you do have is a few more mount points which I've not had in mine (listed). Where are they from? I think mounting the sdcard (modem firmware) is a bad idea so I'm going to skip that.

So, I have twrp installed, and a fast bootloop almost instantly on start. I haven't been able to solve it thus far. I can get into twrp which is something though.

I think the guide for porting TWRP mentioned to add it, so I did.

Sounds similar to me. Did you flash the new system as well? If so, this is when you use TWRP to flash the zip to disable dm-verity.

I did, then the dm-verity but with no success. Assuming /system was corrupt or wrong I've deleted it. I'm now trying to work out how to flash the system.img without fastboot (which I don't have).

So far dd is ending up with a corrupt partition and twrp insists on a zip for system flash. Trying to figure out how to convert it.

Actually you said you tried 10 unsuccessfully, so how did you then flash the v8 image?

TWRP doesn't say "Install Image" at the bottom when you go to Install?

I'm assuming the 2nd link down in OP (github).

This is exciting!

Anytime I got stuck, from TWRP I used
Code:
 adb reboot edl
then I used Sugar to reflash everything all over again.

Phew, I didn't know about that one. I'll try again.

You can't flash an img from TWRP, there's no boot partition to enter fastboot mode.

I'd originally downloaded the nogapps without su and added Magisk.zip after, this caused an instant bootloop. The one with build in gapps+su works. It's possible to disable all gapps and related services except GoogleOne (I installed OpenLauncher into /system/app then removed GoogleOne by force). After this "Google" can be removed and all notifications about Google Services end.

I recommend you take down the twrp and remove the line which mounts the firmware partition as sdcard in case this is what wiped your IMEI. I build my own without this line and IMEI survived.

Tested

Wifi hotspot is working!
Bluetooth, camera, all USB,
Stability

Not working

Thee dots button (don't think it's a big deal as you get the three icons for back etc by default).
Auto screen brightness

Would you post your TWRP to see if there's a difference?
