OP states that this is a ported GSI - but also that I can flash any GSI.

Can I flash Android 12 beta 5 GSI from here now?

Thanks in advance!

I've downloaded the ARM64+GMS file and extracted the system.img

I flashed to both system_a and system_b, which was successful.

However, it doesn't boot: it goes straight back to the bootloader, even after flashing vbmeta.img

How to trouble shoot?

Thanks!

Edit: it won't open twrp either (fastboot boot twrp.img)

Code:
~/platform-tools$ ./fastboot boot twrp.img
Sending 'boot.img' (40960 KB)      OKAY [  3.153s]
Booting                                                  OKAY [  0.001s]
Finished. Total time: 3.193s

But it just goes straight into bootloader again.

Edit2: I used the recovery from your other thread regarding the partitions - that seems to work.

I just followed all the steps to the T again - but it just won't boot. It boots straight into bootloader.


Edit 3: the Beta 3 image flashes just fine...

@Dollscythe FYI, Android 12 Beta 3.1 GSI download link is dead.

Could someone reupload that? I tried GSI beta 5 from Google and also some image named "Pixel-AB-12-20210909-ErfanGSI-TrebleExp.img" but they are not working. Same findings as @Langduscher

When @Dollscythe doesn't mind, I can upload the beta 3 image


Worth pointing out, neither Beta has working call audio folks

Im not in a rush for that, not sure why anyone else would be...

Well, beacuse why not?

The Pixel 2XL isn't my daily driver, that helps in trying this stuff out :)
