Can you share the details how to install it?

Just trying to add in my 2cents, but have you tried following this article?(I just googled it a few minutes ago)

https://www.xda-developers.com/flash-generic-system-image-project-treble-device/

Try reading the troubleshooting tips section? I have not personally tried flashing GSI, but I am assuming you're more adventurous than I am.

And if you had read the article, pardon me, was not trying to insult your intelligence.

Ok, I think I know my issue.
The current images are "a/b" images. Mi9SE seems to be "a" only (at least thats what Treble Check is telling me).
190501 offers an "a" only build, I think thats the one satmaster got working.

Maybe I will try again later.

It will. You may have done something wrong
But what? There isn't really much to do wrong, is it?

As I'm using xiaomi.eu I first reverted to stock, did a factory reset and than fastboot flash system.
Ended up with bootloop as well (a-only version).
Next time I try I will have a look at the logs.

    So, here we go. Here you can find the repackaged 10.3.1.0 vendor and firmware (including modem) twrp-flashable zip. At the moment the results are interesting, but I need a bit more feedback from users on different networks and in different environments.

    Also, Here is the V3 Magisk Module that adds some more props overlays (of course the bt and auto brightness fixes are still there). Be warned that flashing this zip requires also installing ims.apk or the sim won't be recognized. You can find the app attached to this post and you can just "adb install ims.apk" or install it from an in-phone file manager as a normal app.

    Please let me know how it goes for you guys. If all is fine I'll open a new thread to keep a list of the magisk module versions and of the different vendor packages.

    Update: Reinstated the download link for the vendor/firmware image. All good now.

    I'm conducting a test. Just repackaged miui 10.3.1.0 EEA by removing the system, boot, dtbo and vbmeta images. Slimmed the vendor overlay by removing everything related to china telecom and such. Flashed via TWRP over Floko and Okita kernel and the battery drain during calls seems a bit better now. I'll let you know if it's safe and working but I plan to push the package in cloud and share a link soon. If this works I'll make sure to publish updated flashable vendor/firmware packages to use with GSI roms. I'll keep you updated with the results....

    My favorite GSI Rom is Havoc OS 2.5

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/pr...bled-device-development/gsi-havoc-os-t3930030

    Everything is working. With GApps it is the most Pixel like experience. It also works with okitakernel.

    Flashing:

    1. First wipe System, Data, Cache, Dalvik.
    Reboot to Recorey
    2. Install Global or EEA Xiaomi zip.
    Reboot to Recovery
    3. Install Hvoc OS System Image.
    Reboot to Recovery
    4. Flash Magisk
    Reboot to Recovery
    5. Go to wipe and increase System
    Partition size.
    Reboot to Recovery
    6. Install okitakernel.
    Reboot to Recovery
    7. If you like to install GApps go to Step 8,
    else go to wipe and do factory reset.
    Then restart Sytem.
    8. Install GApps Package what you like.
    Reboot to Recovery
    9. Mount Sytem and start TWRP file
    manager Go to /sytem root/sytem and then to app folder.
    Delete Via folder (its Havoc OS or LOS Browser) and camera2
    folder if you installed GCam with GApps (because you can later install the Mi9SE GCam Mod).
    Next go back and go to priv-app folder and delete Dialer folder if you installed Google Dialer.
    Reboot Recovery.
    10. Do factory reset.
    11. Restart to System.

    Same for me.
    In this zip there are many patch for mi9 and they aren't compatible with mi9SE

    Care to try this one as a magisk module? I took all the files and configs from miui 10.2.9 EEA stable and tweaked a bit the overlay to enable auto brightness. It's based on the one from AndroPlus for MI9 but with the "correct" files for our phone.

    Tested on my phone all day (I'm running floko) and both bt audio and calls work fine. Also auto brightness seems ok-ish... maybe needs some tweaks :)

    Let me know if it works for you so maybe I can tweak it a bit more and put it on github for everyone :)
