Howto install this GSI.
1. Use TWRP's Fastboot

2. Use CustomAP md5.tar with Odin.
**Test with A11 SM-T225
** Now i used only CustomAP Making for flashing with Odin , No
TWRP ' s Fastboot flashing any more. (Except: want to dirty flash update GSI)


using Magisk v24.3 patch (boot + vbmeta) flash at USER DATA Slot.

First boot must connects internet and update magisk.
When opening the Magisk App, does a popup with "Additional Setup needed" confirm that, it'll reboot and it should be fully installed.

Fix the wrong Taskbar height.
https://github.com/Coxxs/hide-tablet-taskbar/releases/tag/1.0

download and install this module >magisk-pe-taskbar-fix-hide.zip

hide: Long press taskbar to completely hide it (for Android 12.1+)
  • Long press bottom of the screen (when not in desktop) to show taskbar again
  • In PixelExperience ROMs, hiding the taskbar pill also fixes the problem of not being able to add icons to the desktop

offline-charging
It's help for breaking Samsung " Warrant bit " Stop state , which you can use power-off button to restart device normally.
( This feature did not have generally in all GSIs)

So much better than any stock currently available for this device better than a11 and a12 ... OneUi is just a pile of junk please make bunch of CustomAP''s for all variants this gsi is highly recommended I'm running it and feels so snappy and nice to use installed via DSU-Sideloader with a11 as base I hope someone makes customAP for both a11 and a12 XAR wifi only variant thanks to Tom for pointing out this new godie and all his testings

Aye , offline charging works but don't wake up on power button to see the % don't know if is because not flashed in the real partition or not , anyone has tried flashing the system.img of a gsi directly from the side loaded dsu I'm thinking on doing that on termux with dd if= of= maybe it does work maybe not and I end with soft brick tab XD

    Pex is great but I needed to test stock , I have sources of a11 kernel now later going to make one compatible with a11 vendor base to use with the Gsi pointed on this post

    VIPER rocks @
    Wait , so you can make a custom kernel , so you can make it for twrp , it crashes
