Dirty Unicorns Semi GSI for Samsung Devices
By CodeFox & OpenSauce9810
What is this?
This is a Semi Generic System Image. That means it's a generic system image that's been optimized as much as possible for our Samsung Devices.
How the heck do I flash this?
It's slightly different than flashing a zip, so here's what you need to do.
- Download the image file
- UNCOMPRESS IT .xz is a compressed file. So you can uncompress it with zarchiver from the playstore or 7zip/winrar.
- Flash the ARH6 Vendor Image to your Vendor Partion from TWRP (Press the Install Image button at the bottom right of where you usually select a flashable zip)
- Flash the System Image to your System Partition
- Optional if you want root (but reccomended): Reboot to recovery again then flash your choice of Magisk. I use 17.1 as I can get galaxy wear to work with that version.
- Reboot your device and you should be good to go! No need to flash gapps as they're included.
- Initial Release
- Updated sources to 9.0 r21 release. (December Security Patch)
- Gapps included, (dialer and messenger also included so you won't start without a phone or sms app)
- Bootanimation changed to reduce boot times
- Tweaks to ambient play ticker so it clears when you clear media notifications
- Further performance tweaks thanks to @malinathani animations transition smoother now.
- Keystore fixed - You can now use fingerprint within apps (once you've passed safetynet with hideprops module)
