So I was trying to get into making a rom and realize how difficult it was so with me being impatient I tried installing the android q gsi straight from google and it works! well kinda Its only showing the android booting screen can anyone get passed it? Im ssure its vey possible


All you need to do is

Flashing the GSI


Reboot to your device’s bootloader using either a button combination or by issuing the command:

adb reboot bootloader

Next, we need to disable Android Verified Boot (AVB). You can do this by entering the following command:

fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

Next, let’s wipe the system partition:

fastboot erase system (might be easier to do this in twrp)

Boot into twrp:

fastboot boot <img file name>, e.g. fastboot boot twrp.img (use the latest build)

Then drag and drop the system image from zip and twrp image onto the phone and flash the system.img for system and twrp for recovery using twrp

reboot in recovery flash again and wipe data!

done

Edit. U also have the VB disable command wrong. What u are saying just flashing the vbmeta. --disable-verification is in there too..

Yeah everyone got that far bud. There is no booting past logo.. we posted about it in a thread last month

Actually I saw on erfran's telegram chat for q gsi someone posted screenshots fully booted into the q gsi that was right away when he first released it too. The guy hasn't respond as to how or what he did differently but if u search for 6t in the chat and scroll all the way up you'll see what I mean. So it's possible hell if theyre getting into the 5 I don't know why we're not able to get in too... Although I'd prefer an official alpha Dev leaked whatever from OnePlus I'd settle for some aosp Google Q

I have flashed every single gsi he posts on his server. Nothing works on our phone. Non ab stuff has q booting all day. I have even ported his stuff and they still don't boot. Miui is the only thing that works.

@iaio72 yes to a certain extent maybe go off the one plus 6 build I've seen around on the internet I've tried flashing it and it seems to be stuck on the screen before the bootloader but when you check twrp folders have been created like download and music so maybe there's something to it ??*♂️

So the ROM booted, but don't started? Correct?

It has a bootlogo, and that's it.. he never said it went past that. Hence my whole input as stated above. . It doesn't work for us bro. Everyone in tg tried this a month ago. All same results. I managed to port some of it to our stock system img and got a different boot logo...and also the command to disable VB is not the same as flashing the image

It is: fastboot flash --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img

(for the Q gsi the install instructions are to use their vbmeta.img.)

Fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img just flashes vbmeta. U must disable ours and flash theirs. One command

@iaio72 yes it boots but only till you reach Android bootlogo I've tried everything I can't think of anything else that's why I was hoping our talented friends can fix this and @fullofhell I understand this was already brought up I just quickly posted this without doing any further research because I thought I already seen all there was but I'm sure there's a way to make it boots I'm almost certain maybe someone can port with treble or port the boot.img from a pixel build I'm not really an expert just suggesting no reason on giving up cuz someone told me to
