I just want to share my experience with GSI ROMS (Generic System Image), this is for the people like me that is not familiar with this images.
First of all, CANNONG uses ARM64 A/B IMAGES, if you try to install any other you're going to end up in a bootloop, search how to install GSI images while we wait for developers to start with this specific cell phone. Here are some screenshots, it's stable and rooted.

This is a great idea! Can you give us a run down on what's working and what isn't?

I'm thinking - 4G/5G calls/internet, WiFi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Audio, NFC, Hotspot, USB PC connection, etc.

Everything you mentioned is working, as you can see in the screenshot it only shows LTE, for some reason is not showing 5G, other than that it's nice and solid, no reboots, the last 2 test are the last ones I took for you to see the download speed. Stay safe.

Hi, I'm asking you for help installing a GSI ROM.
I unlocked the phone, installed OrangeFox from where I installed the ROM image (the .img file) on the "super" partition. After reboot the phone is without OS. Someone would be able to show me the procedure to follow. Thank you.

@sax61 unfortunately you can't write over the "Super" partition. The Super partition contains Vendor, System, and Product combined, so what's happened is you've wiped out the Vendor and Product partitions and replaced them with just a System partition.

You won't be able to use OrangeFox for this as you need stock recovery to boot to fastbootd to flash the System partition, and I don't think the current version of OrangeFox can do it?

What you need to do is:
1. Reflash the stock Recovery and Super partition (there's some other posts on the forum on where to download it).
2. Boot to fastboot using Vol - and Power. Send the fastboot command: fastboot reboot fastboot. Which will reboot into fastbootd.
3. From fastbootd you can now do fastboot flash system your_gsi.img
4. You can reflash OrangeFox now if you like.

Hey there bud, sorry I missed your post.
1. Download a GSI rom arm64 ab
2. Uncompress it using 7z as long as the image XZ
3. Rename your uncompress image system.
4. Assuming you already have Orange Fox installed. BOOT TO RECOVERY and format data-----YES.
5. Ince in OrangeFox go to reboot and hit FASTBOOT(this particular fastboot from orange fox is basically like being FASTBOOT'D).
6. In your computer open CMD and type fastboot devices, just to make sure your phone is being recognized.
7. Type FASTBOOT FLASH SYSTEM SYSTEM.IMG(the system.img is the image you uncompressed if you renamed it of course).
8. Let it finish and reboot, if it doesn't boot try another GSI, as some of them I couldn't get them to boot.
Try it, to me anything is better than stock.
Good luck bud.

Does Bluetooth Audio work on any GSI?

I've installed PHH's AOSP GSI. The headphones connect fine, but audio continues to come out of the phone rather than the headphones.

EDIT:
Does any external audio work on any GSI? I plugged in headphones, and they don't work either.

EDIT 2:
Bluetooth Calls work, just not audio. I seem to be unable to adjust call volume though.

Hey there bud, I actually found a rom that works with phone calls only and for music I use wired earbuds.
