I'd reckon someone destroying their entire phone due to repartitioning Have you actually tried it yourself to make sure its safe? Plus why would we need to use GSI's anyway, pixel's are loved for custom firmware, and it's extremely easy to build new roms.

Ok guys
I'm using this method myself, and I've told my friends that they're using it, too. So don't worry about it.

As for GSI, some people like MIUI, OOS, etc., so there will always be someone who will use it.

Sorry, beg to differ. Been using a mi pad4, and the only reason i switched to gestures on 10 was because of the way MIUI had implemented it. It's got tons more features than stock 10. The file manager is brilliant, 3 finger swipe to screenshot, and not to mention quickball. So yeah, I'd gladly extend space for system, like i did on my Nexus 5 to use lineage. I'm glad someone's taken the initiative to do this. Good job OP.
