FIRST AOSP 9 BASED ROM with Pixel Features especially for Kirin Devices

Disclaimer:
Welcome to Huawei-Kirin-Project. Our goal is to provide
a overall stable AOSP experience across all Huawei/Honor phones
utilizing a Kirin SoC and EMUI 8.0 - either updated or shipped.
So far most of the bugs have been fixed and the ROMs are fully usable
as daily driver - and fully Kirin optimized. We are a fully Open Source Organisation created by a Team of 5 People.

Support:
We spend an astonishing amount of time developing this software. We can't spend much time on XDA as a result, so if you need support, please try the following:

1) Search. Search, search, search. Yes, you. I don't care how unique or important your question is, it's very likely someone has adressed it already. Especially if you're even close to new at this.
2) Read our FAQ
3) Ask here on xda If you can't find a solution

Download:
Kirin-Phone GSI
Kirin-Tablet GSI

VERY IMPORTANT
-Before installing ROM for first time Wipe Data Partition with Stock Recovery.
-If you Update the ROM skip the wipe section in Instructions.

Bugs:
Pie:
- Hotspot broken
- Huawei Camera not Ported yet

Requirement for installing
EMUI 8 has to be flashed anytime before
Unlocked Bootloader
Stock Kernel,Recovery and Ramdisk has to be flashed

Instructions

1. Download ROM
2. Extract the system.img from .xz rom file.
3. Flash the system.img via fastboot (fastboot flash system pathTo/system.img)
4. Flash stock ramdisk.img and kernel.img (Extracted from EMUI ) if you haven't done before
5. Wipe Data in Stock Recovery
6. Reboot (first boot may crash simply reboot the device again)

(Optional)
After first boot you can use this instructions to flash Magsik on your device.
Magisk Guide



Additional notes

- Pie encryption stuff is incompatible with Oreo recoveries, so use recovery with no decryption for now
- If it reboots on the first boot, don't be surprised, it's ok.
- If it's stuck on a bootanimation - make sure that you did wipes properly (properly - means a data wipe in stock recovery)
- It's a pretty early build, so don't expect it to be rock stable. It's good for daily driver as long as you don't mind the minor issues it has now.
- GAPPS are included in every build

This is sweet music to my eyes :) I've flashed many different GSI's to the Huawei MediaPad M5 and none of them looked quite right (text fuzzy, not sharp), or something didn't work properly. Going to flash this one later tonight.

Thanks for the work on this, will post the results.

P20 lite supported, but not p20 Pro? Is there a specific reason? I read that other P gsi work on p20 lite, but on my Pro it doesn't even start booting.

Thank you so much for this!
In the OP, you said that stock recovery, kernel, and ramdisk need to be flashed. If I'm coming from phh's Treble (8.1), do I need to flash the kernel and ramdisk again? I never installed TWRP, Magisk, or anything like that (I basically only touched system).

I've got the Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4" WiFi version, on first boot, the following services keep stopping: Bluetooth, Google, Google Play Services. Rebooted several times to no avail. Skipping everything get's me to the "Just a Sec" screen with the spinner.

This was a full factory image start, followed by the installation instructions. Has anyone else run into this with any device?

If you're absolutely sure you never touched the other partitions, then sure, go ahead and flash the rom only. Dont see why you wouldnt want to do it, it literally takes like 10 seconds to flash both of the files, including typing the commands.

Tablet version. Is your device the same flavor as mine: US 8.4" M5 WiFi only? I was able to flash the OpenKirin LineageOS Beta 5 without any app issues.

I flashed it successfully on my Honor 7X. For the first boot it reboot automatically, but after that it was fine and I could complete the setup normally.
Everything seems to be working well so far (even MTP). The only bug I found is that the swipe down gesture on the fingerprint sensor does not bring down the notification shade. The rest of the fingerprint gestures work though (swiping for recents, tap to go back, hold to go home).
