Some of you may remember me if you had a Galaxy S9 or Note 10... I rooted my Note 10+ 5G (N976B) Last night and decided to try and have a stab at getting stock android on there by means of project treble. This is a Semi Generic System Image - meaning it's been/being enhanced specifically for our note devices and less focused towards being cross compatible with other devices.
If you have already tested the existing treble roms you'll know that the back lighting doesn't work and you can't adjust brightness. I've had a play around and I've got a working Android 10 AOSP build with fully working backlighting. I thought I'd share as I'd seen a few people who said they can't get GSI's working.
Download System Image
Gapps are included, the image is not rooted. You can flash Magisk yourself.
How to flash:
- Make sure you're on a stock based rom (and rooted/twrped) Dr Ketan posted a good guide for this.
- Download the System Image above
- Reboot to TWRP
- Select Wipe
- Slide the bar across the bottom of the screen
- Go back to the main TWRP menu and select install
- Press "Install Image" at the bottom right.
- Select the system image you downloaded and swipe to flash.
Once the GSI boots perform another reboot - for some reason the navbar doesn't start up on first boot.
What's working and not working:
Obviously you lose S-Pen functionality, but can still use it as a stylus. You also lose the ability to use your telephoto and telescopic lenses.
UltraSonic Fingerprint isn't working at the moment, but I'm looking into fixing that.
How can you help me?
Let me know how it's working for the different device models. People on other versions please can you let me know your device vendor fingerprint. (to do this On your device, in adb or Termux app use this command: getprop ro.vendor.build.fingerprint)
phhusson - for all the project treble work, this is all thanks to him.
