Did you mean you used NikGapps? NikGapps are buggy on our device... I never even succeeded flashing them. Everytime, I would get error in twrp whatever I do.

Try using OpenGapps. They're very smooth...

And what do you mean by constant restarts? The device? I didn't get you... 😔



Yes, that Gapps and Yes I install open gapps and goes good, I mean with constant restarts like, por example you turn on the device and when the boot sequence ends you see the RIL constantily searching a network so calls and data are unusable, double sim do not work, the constant network search is so annoying that the device slows down, it happens every 15-30 seconds so the device is unusable also

Ohh, THAT'S STRANGE... I didn't get this problem. It's working perfectly on mine. I use data more than wifi and it works. Do you think it's a carrier issue? Or did you change any of those phh IMS settings? and also try changing sim slot(it might be defective).

It's not a carrier issue cause in EMUI works normal, maybe it's a issue with the RIL implementation of the ROM (it's the data network, mobile network) The issue appear when start the first boot so also I try changing IMS setting and phh treble setting to see if issue disappear but no, It happens with gapps and no gapps, using a single sim the problem seems no appear but I tried that for few minutes only

Alrighty, so dual sim is buggy. Don't you think you can manage with single sim or try AOSP 10 and check if dual sim works

Hi, thanks for share this great ROM, Are you trying or testing another GSI a11 ROM like more recent cause I can try it to help with report bugs and put fixes etc... There's something to activate one hand mode like EMUI? And this support dual sim?sorry about that, but I don't have any issue with ril and mobile data....


@Djiban @Venkata Lochan Nune
Thanks to both of you for your time and information, I tried to put this ROM but the only perceptible problem (I did not notice other very noticeable or present problems in the system, only Nicky gapps in twrp) was Ril / Data, it constantly restarts and does not The data works, install many times in different ways but the problem was still present, seeing the answer that if it supports dual sim, that is, if it does but it is not functional, at least in my case it is like that, in fact with a single sim also happened ... I went back to emui and reinstalled, reinstalled without returning to emui well many ways, I plan to try Lineage but then I plan to wait for the developer to release a few more versions, if you leave me the additional steps to do it, preferably here so that other people try and help development
Ril and mobile data work fine for me! If you did all the wipe, I don't see other advice for you sorry

Another thing, i'm trying to flash the rom. but the resize option is not avaible, any idea?
I can only change the file system

P.S The fily system is ext4 and before all the flash i was on f2fs

Edit: I skipped that passage and it resized automatically when i booted in the rom and then i flashed opengapps. For now it seems pretty smooth

Okay i'm restarting the flashing process because i think that magisk is not supported, right?
(As soon as i flashed magisk and restarted the device it got stuck in a bootloop)
So at this point any idea of how to get root?

Use phh super user. You need to use a lot of workarounds to make magisk work.

For phh superuser, settings > phh treble settings > misc. Features > enable super user.

Phh super user is an alternative to magisk. Once you follow the steps in setting in my above post, you'll see an app called super user in app drawer. It will act as root manager. Once you've enabled the settings, your device will be rooted.
oh okay once i unbrick the phone i'll try it

Okay i can say that it works. At first the option in settings wasn't avaible but after 5-6 minutes it pop up.
But now it is going crazy with my sim. The signal keeps turning off every second

Edit: If you are having problem with the sim just enable and disable airplane mode. Idk why but it worked for me

    Follow the telegram groups and rose bot will help you with everything...

    If you reply with "#best-roms" you'll get this..
    Best roms for our Huawei devices:

    1. Lineage 18.1 by DarkJoker360

    ======================
    Phh-Treble gsis

    2. AOSP 11 by @phhusson
    3. CrDroid by @eternityson
    4. Bliss Roms/Bless 11 by @eternityson
    5. CAOS 11 by @eternityson
    To correctly install them use #a11-installation-guide
    Also download GSI image for a-only/arm64 variant!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    And for bugs, you need to search "a11-fixes"

    A11 fixes "2" Workarounds/Fixes for Lineage 18.1 and other A11 GSI's:

    - Gapps :
    NikGapps Core - https://sourceforge.net/projects/ni...ps-core-arm64-11-20210131-signed.zip/download
    OpenGapps Pico - https://sourceforge.net/projects/op...ps-arm64-11.0-pico-20210110-TEST.zip/download

    - Fingerprint:
    At first I couldn't add my FP, then I went to "Settings/System/Gestures" and enabled "Swipe fingerprint for notifications"
    and tested if I can scroll notifications with it, after that I disabled it and then I noticed that I could add FP. So in the end it WORKS.

    - Calling :
    If you are using NikGapps, u need to go to "Settings/Apps and Notifications/Default Apps" and set default Phone app/Dialer.
    Then you can make calls without problems.

    - Sounds for notifications/alarm :
    Can't be found, you need to download and install "Google/Pixel Sounds app" and set ringtone sound manually.
    Download:

    - Root :
    As default it doesn't work. But it can be enabled using one of Hamido's 3 methods. You can find them here in group, hit "search button".
    Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/latviandude-s-projects/files/Huawei P8 Lite 2017/Android 11/Fixes-Workarounds/Root/

    - Netflix :
    Latest versions doesn't let you play videos, I believe.. So to be able do that you need to download this version - "6_26_1_build_15_31696_31696".
    It will still give you sometimes error messages ,for example, when you try to play next episode but at least you will be able to watch something.
    Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/latviandude-s-projects/files/Huawei P8 Lite 2017/Android 11/Fixes-Workarounds/Netflix/

    - Instagram :
    Everything is ok except you can't add Story from Gallery, so to fix this you need to install older Instagram version. (apkmirror)

    - OneDrive :
    It's ok, except you can't download your files, documents using app. But there's an workaround, Thanks to Hamido like always.
    You can download your files using ADM Browser app (PlayStore)

    - RIL/Network :
    As I have Latvia SIM Card and Dual Sim Variant - PRA-LX1, after first boot I notice - Network restart issue.
    To fix it you need to set PIN Lock from different device, if it doesn't help, you need to disable Dual sim with "persist.radio.multisim.config=none"
    and reboot ur device, usually it works, else u need to go to Settings and reset APN settings.

    - Location :
    Google Maps, fails to detect correct location (some meters accuracy inside house but I'm sure it works,
    u just need to go outside and do some walking to get more accurate location)

    If you are havin other issues, you prolly didn't follow a11-installation guide! Else if you did, tell us your problem :) use a11-fixes2 as hashtag.
    Ahh thanks for reply...yeah I have joined the group

    ***If you have a bricked device/messed up somewhere during the process and unable to figure out what to do, follow this guide by @lmaohelp .***


    This was already described in a separate thread which describes the process to get back to EMUI 8 from custom ROMs. You can find it here.

    Just follow the procedure in that thread. You need not even flash the frp unlock thing. After that, follow the process described in this thread.

    It's recommended to be on original EMUI 8 before installing base EMUI 8 for hi6250. Follow the process linked in requirements to install EMUI 8 first then follow this spoiler.

    Procedure :
    • Make sure your device is running stock EMUI 8.
    • Extract downloaded image using some xz extractor(7zip can also do this), copy it to pc.
    • Reboot your device to TWRP.
    • Format the data partition {Wipe > Format data > type "yes"}
    • Flash fstab.hi6250b.zip from attachments
    • Check if your device is detected by adb using
      Code:
      adb devices
      .
    • Move the img file using adb to device
      Code:
      adb push -p *img-name*.img /sdcard/
      (the img file must be in adb directory).
    • (Optional, only if you want gapps) Move Gapps in the same manner
      Code:
      adb push -p *gapps-name*.zip /sdcard/
      (the zip file must be in adb directory).
    • Install img as system image {Install > Install Image > Select > Choose system image > Swipe➡}.
    • (Optional, only if you want gapps) Unmount and Remount system partition as writable. Go to wipe > advanced wipe > Choose system > resize > Swipe➡.
    • Flash gapps.
    • Flash stock recovery. Push it with adb using
      Code:
      adb push -p stock_recovery_ramdisk.img /sdcard/
      and flash it with twrp as "Recovery" after choosing install image.
    • Disconnect your device from PC and reboot to recovery(stock one).
    • Clear cache partition and perform a factory reset(You'll get an error during factory reset but you have to do it) (your device will bootloop if wiped with twrp itself).
    • Reboot, Cross your fingers 🤞 and wait.
    >Booting is quite different in android 11 ROMs on our device. You'll see the "Your device has been unlocked" screen for more time than usual. Then, you'll see the boot animation (for very short time on subsequent boots) and the device will boot to ROM. So, be patient. (This isn't the case with ROMs upto android 10)

    >Face Unlock is working perfectly



    Additionals:
    >Its better to charge your device to atleast 70% before doing anything as you'll have ample of time to recover it if you messed up something. If not, you can still charge your device in eRecovery mode and twrp but i found some issues like heating up and slow charging.
    >Don't forget to set ringtone, notification and other sounds from settings after booting.

    😊Happy Flashing !

    Really ? I can't find it in my phone settings.
    I only have Phh Treble Settings. Can't find either on developers options
    Phh treble settings > misc features.

    Hello, do you know how can I factory reset in the Huawei ERecovery step at the end ?
    I try to do it so but it keep reboot my phone to TWRP recovery, it's like I can't wipe data/factory reset my phone from the stock recovery.
    Maybe TWRP is bloking it ? Should I disable something in the TWRP settings ?

    Between thanks for yours work !
    Your mistake is that your using stock erecovery.

    You have to use stock recovery. Meaning flashing the stock recovery provided in post 1 over the twrp recovery :



    - in TWRP Recovery Flash STOCK_RECOVERY_RAMDISK.img {Install > Install Image > Select > Choose recovery image > Swipe}


    - in TWRP recovery, reboot to recovery (even if TWRP says no OS installed)


    - in Stock recovery, wipe cache and factory reset (error is normal)


    - in Stock recovery, reboot and wait
    2
    Is it Gapps ? I use the nano one
    Nope, there's an app on play store called "power menu controls" download that. And the other, you could use Tasker(also an app from play store) to create your custom controls like the ones I did for screen rotation.
    2
    🤣 Well I think I did send you the correct command in post 27...

    Yes, the EMUI 8 update will override twrp and partitions will change. Now use the twrp from the attachments in post 1. The fastboot command also will change. You have to use
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp.img
    Finally had the time to install it and surprise, I succeeded :)
    Now I just need to test it...

    Thanks for you help!
