ok good to know. So my kernel is a yeat old Version 3.
shall i Upgrade it?
currently everythnik is working for me. Well Bluetooth calls and Signal Bars are not. but i remember not working on any GSI.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. ;)
No need, imagine I'm still on Oreo Bootloader
How are you still on a stock bootloader after Treblizing your phone? Or is it possible to reinstall the bootloader with Odin after treblizing?

Another question I have is Treble GSI compatibility. I noticed that the Galaxy J7 has a AOSP Extended v7.x Treble GSI/ROM available. Can I just install that one on my A8?

Bootloader has nothing to do with Treble :). It should work on all treble device, unless its not sGSI

Hi everyone, I install this Vendor + Pixel Experience and I fix ctsProfile with Magisk and Xposed. So now when I check Play Store, my device is certified.

But I have I huge problem that bothers me : when I go to configure my Google Pay, it says me my device has been modified or rooted...

I already enable Magisk Hide and select Google Pay, clear data for Google Pay and Google Play Services so I don't understand this problem... Can someone help me, please ? :(

I have booted ONEUI Q with our Pie kernel :silly:

I haven't released it yet :)

Great idea! I've found that I'm not getting anywhere near the same battery life with a custom Pie Treble GSI as I did with Stock ONE UI Pie. And that is with your Quantum Kernel v4, Battery Manager option on and Magisk Modules like Acca and LKT Manager.
Unfortunately nothing would be allowed to run in the background on my stock Pie ONE UI, so I switched to a custom ROM after trying to change all kind of options without effect. :(
But I would really like to try Q ONE UI.

Oh, and I miss Bluetooth calling!

Following steps above, lets say all is pass and ok, I have trebelized my device SM-A530FD and installed vendor_dumpster.

Can I install any GSI even android 10 or 11 such the ones available on github (as longer its A only Arm64 of course), or is that vendor is specific for Android Pie GSIs only ?
And for other versions i will need a different Vendor ?

The bluetooth calls broken is it because of the vendor or the GSI ? If install a different android version of GSI will it works ?

Is there a fix for it ?

Thanks in advance for all the efforts and ur time, great work :)

If I want to install a different GSI I follow the steps again (install vendor, flash GSI, flash boot fix and fixes if needed) or just wipe system, data, cache and flash the new image+ boot fix
From where i can get the boot fix please or any other needed fixes ? Cannot seems to find them !

    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.

    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.
