What is this?

Please note that: this will void your warranty.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BUGS
-Finger Print sensor NOT working
-Sim 2 Slot NOT working
-Notifications may be delayed
That's all i know, let me know if you find any more bugs.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What do you need to flash?
1. Must have an unlocked bootloader and have some custom romming knowledge.
2. Download the TWRP, VBMETA and boot.img, should be down in the thread.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do I flash?
Put your phone in download mode and open odin, there you will click on AP and put your TWRP, after that put your VBMETA Disabler in the USERDATA slot.
After your done flashing the TWRP, shut off your device and hold POWER and VOLUME UP untill you boot into the TWRP.
Once you're in, go to wipe-format data-type yes.
Flash the boot.img ( IMPORTANT )
Flash the MultiDisabler
And now flash the GSI, I will be using the Pixel Experience 13.0 GSI https://github.com/ponces/treble_build_pe/releases ( BIG THANKS TO PONCES ON GITHUB FOR MAKING IT <3 )
After you're done flashing the GSI, reboot and you should be done.

honestly, I'm not flashing Android 13 on my device so does it work on android 12 or 11 vendors?

No android 13 GSI boots on this a71 for me.
Also FOD will most likely NOT work since PHH had backed away from gsi development, so it's trebledroid based most likely, which will have more bugs and less stable overall.

Also I can't flash Faizauthar's kernel on A13 anymore.

Actually, I tried PE 13 on Android 12 vendor and it worked fine except for :- sim2 and fingerprint.
Which is quite common in GSI...

Edit :- also faced delayed notifications, which I still face even in samsung android 13 original firmware

A13 is still very buggy on this phone, so I don't really recommend it. Will port A13 roms when things get a little more stable....

SIM2 works on A12

Plus the brightness bug on gsis with Android 12 vendor, this is why I am still clinging to A11 vendor (bit sv rev 8, downgraded from Android 13 vendor). Samsung just makes things worse and worse...

Does Sim 2 work on GSIs for you? I was unable to hear or speak on calls using Sim 2 when I was using PE12
