PixelExperience P GSI

An AOSP based ROM, with gapps included, and all Pixel stuffs (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, bootanimation).

Based on Android 9.0​

PLS DON'T FLASH GAPPS, ALREADY INCLUDED

Warning

You'll most probably loose ALL your data, and might break your phone. Please use with extreme caution!

This ROM is not mine, I gave the credits to the autors, I'm just explaining how to install on Moto E5!!

Maybe you're wondering, what's GSI?

Basically it's the system image, you install it on a previous ROM already installed, like LOS 15.1 for us in this case, that means that it can't be installed using stock ROM, you need to install LOS 15.1 previously:

[James] https://forum.xda-developers.com/moto-e5/development/rom-unofficial-lineage-os-15-1-moto-e5-t3818732

[Nora] https://forum.xda-developers.com/moto-e5/development/rom-unofficial-lineage-os-15-1-moto-e5-t3834788

How to install

Go to the explanation of TWRP: https://www.xda-developers.com/flash-generic-system-image-project-treble-device/

What's working

Camera but a little bit darker (use open camera instead)
Torch
Data
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
Fingerprint
Rotation
GPS
MTP
SD as Internal Storage

What doesn't work:

- Hotspot
- Graphic Glitches and Lag Fix: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hmdrznl7ajicu1b/PixelExp-lag-fix.zip?dl=0
- voLTE (not tested but I guess that is not working)

Here's a video showing that the ROM is working on XT1944-4 (Nora): https://youtu.be/sgS1nKQ3-p0

About performance even using lag fix is not as good as it should be, Is not full optimized yet, I would rate it with 8.5/10

Warning (II)

Someone reports that on E5 Play (XT1921-1) WiFi is not working, wipe Dalvik/ART in TWRP it could fix that, also it seems that keyboard it glitchy

I'm not the maintainer of this ROM, so don't report bugs here, the original thread is here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/project-treble/trebleenabled-device-development/9-0-pixelexperience-p-t3833294

This ROM was tested on Moto E5 XT1944-2/4 Nora, but it should work on James and Rhannah

You can skip setup wizard in order to prevent the messages of uncertified device, then you can try to access to google account and then register the phone, if you try to access to Google on the first boot, you won't be able to continue, it depends on how much lucky you are, keep in mind this advertisement

ROM: https://github.com/EnesSastim/Downloads/releases

To root this ROM just install Magisk Manager, then reboot to recovery and flash Magisk v17.1

Android OS version: 9.0.0_r8
Security patch level: September

Wow! I'm gonna try this out for sure! Been waiting for either HavocOS rom or Pixel Experience to come out. Will this work with fastboot booting into twrp instead of flashing it?

I have the Boost Mobile E5 Plus (XT1924-8) which has 3GB ram, 32GB rom, and the octacore 1.4Ghz snapdragon 435.

Wifi is not working, keyboard is glitchy, a popup appears for a fraction of a second before disappearing (all of this for 1921-1)

In my case I've tried HavocOs but it doesn't boot and is outdated compared to Pixel/AOSP

Yes, here in XT1944-2 we need to boot into TWRP with fastboot, so that's the way that it will work

Wipe Dalvik/ART and cache it maybe would fix that issue, I read that solution for LOS 15.1 and it maybe work for Wi-fi

That seemed to do the trick. Thanks!

Enabling Force GPU rendering in the developer options seemed to remove some of the flickering issues. Others still persist.

Glad to hear that it worked, yeah I know that but unfortunately I don't know if it a issue from the kernel, or because some missing graphics drivers, I tried to fix that but without success, we need to wait until the ROM is updated because as I said I'm not the device, I just provide a way to install on Moto E5 and the fix for lag, of course I will look for something else

Is not a file, is a folder, then you don't need that one, the key is to erase that folder to fix distortion

    I've found a way to make even the latest builds boot. this can also apply to other GSI with Pie roms, since it worked on Resurrection Remix 7, but it didn't work with ViperOS.

    the "workaround" is basically like so:

    you flash any Pixel Experience GSI that's November 2018 and newer via fastboot, then you go to your recovery, if it's either TWRP or OrangeFox, and then:

    - Fix Contexts (I don't know if that really fixes anything, but I do it just in case.)

    - Pull cameraserver.rc from /system via:
    Code:
    adb pull /system/etc/init/cameraserver.rc

    Edit that with any file editor you'd like, just remove the last line

    Do the same thing with vold.rc remove the last line:
    Code:
    adb pull /system/etc/init/vold.rc

    why for vold? because there's some r/w issues that the internal storage will literally not appear at all, not even for apps themselves so they could use it. because if you actually don't do the vold edit, you'll boot, but you can't really do much.

    anyway, once you're done with both files on deleting the last lines, push the new files like so:
    Code:
    adb push cameraserver.rc /system/etc/init/
    adb push vold.rc /system/etc/init/

    and there you have it. it'll boot like previous dates, except that Android System will tell you something's wrong. I know, as I get it too upon every startup or restart. as far as I know, I haven't found any issues with storage anyway.

    I may have like, no posts on this forum, but I found a way to get new pie roms working, and I just wanted to share.

    No thanks, I've soft bricked my E5 several times now messing around with these GSis and the UK E5 version is crap with much less ram than the other versions so it's really slow.
    Im now replacing my E5 with something else, just not sure what yet.

    Thanks anyway.

    Just wanted to say I also bricked my device about 4 times then just waited for a better result now I just got told that the ROMs we are flashing I guess are the wrong ones idk but if I get to know which ones then I'll let you know but don't quit man keep going

    Works on Moto E5 Plus (hannah)?

    You should try, it is supposed to work on all variants because of Treble support, make a backup or take the stock ROM from your variant in case of something goes wrong

    Nope none at all
