Some information you should know..

Full TREBLE Documentation here : https://source.android.com/devices/architecture
Generic System Image (GSI) Documentation here : https://source.android.com/setup/build/gsi

GSIs are not the most stable and many users prove they are unable to read. they just want ready stuff. with this project that is not the case. if you skip the instructions/F.A.Qs and notes, dont bother installing this project as you probably wont be able to get it running.

This is a fully featured VENDOR and KERNEL designed for this device to support project treble, it is based on other Exynos 7885 Vendors and modified to support our devices, i have also added few patches and fixes to this vendor to get the best possible experience

The vendor is pretty much bugles, therefore any bugs you face, Report them to the appropriate Threads of the GSI you installed or github issues section, as those are not mine to fix i only provide the vendor and kernel that allows GSIs to run on.

This is fantastic. The boot time has decreased immensely.
Finally got aosp extended 6.5 to boot. Well i didn't, you did.
What a difference. Ressurection Remix as well. The 9.0. That one seems a bit iffy no matter.
I am noticing a different mobile data icon. It'll say 4g+
Not too far from normal full usage. Thank you.

Where you able to get gapps installed it always failed for me.
This has happened on most of these roms

Yes i was. My method is a bit harsh though. I am a fan of internal destruction
So for the gsi, i wipe everything including internal. Then i reboot to recovery. Swipe to allow modifications. Install vendor. Install system image. Then reboot recovery flash fix boot. I almost never bother with gapps anymore until it boots fully. Then i'll immediately go into recovery and flash gapps then reboot of course.
I got sick of errors myself. If you find one you like or want to go back to then it may be worth trying for that perfect install. Almost there.

Before only 6.1 worked. Now 6.5 starts in a minute or so. 6.3 boot looped before so i am going to see what happens now.

I'm using ion- v1.0.c 9.0 without any issues.
For some reason on the newer gsi roms you can't get gapps to install.
ion rom gapps are included.

I have never heard of that. Of course I am downloading but is there any information about it besides a file on android file host?
