Hello ^^

When I follow the tutorial (first page and the one with the CMD command) it always ends with my phone either rebooting in bootloader or getting bootloop.

I tried EVERYTHING I could think of...

GSI that I wanted to install : Pixel Experience A/B

My actual ROM : latest Xiaomi.EU

P.S : When I check (with apps) if Venus have Treble support, most of the apps says that it isn't the case.

Xiaomi Mi 11
OnePlus 9R
If I use:
Code:
fastboot flash system image_name.img
the terminal will give me an error said '"No such file or directory."
If I use:
Code:
fastboot flash super image_name.img
then the flash will complete normally but the phone will boot into fastboot screen instead of the system.

too many bugs, the most serious one is about the screen staying off and won't wake up in any way... besides this, there are the most common and known bugs, that are brightness problem, speaker problem (temp fix), crazy behaviour of the phone, also it heats a lot also when it is used not much. so stay away from trying gsi, they're absolutaly not suitable for daily driver, i had despreatly to go back to xiaomi.Eu

a pair of questions: is any one wirking on a fully working twrp? when a first custom rom for our phone will come out?

Anyone tried officiel Google GSI (Android 11) or Pixel Experience ?
i tried both, and they're plenty of bugs, so not advised for daily driver... best to stay with xiaomi.eu or miuimix, the gsis are still not flashable with twrp but only with fastbootd method, so if u install a gsi rom that hasn't got gapps, u can't install it, no root, nothing.

    Tired of MIUI , huh?

    Well, don't worry , i will explain to you now how to flash a GSI Rom.

    GSI (Generic System Images) are Universal Custom ROM's , meant to work on 99% of all available devices.

    Do keep in mind however : one wrong move and you brick , and i am not responsable if you do so


    WARNING : Since GSI isn't specifically made for Mi 11 , you might encounter bugs.

    With that out of the way , let's begin!

    Pre-requisites :
    1) ADB and Fastboot installed on your PC
    2) An ARM64 A/B GSI Rom (Grab whichever one you like) : https://github.com/phhusson/treble_experimentations/wiki/Generic-System-Image-(GSI)-list

    IMPORTANT : Make sure the GSI you selected can boot without permissiver!

    3) Vbmeta image : get from your fastboot rom
    4) Mi 11 with Unlocked bootloader
    5) Half a brain

    Got all of that? Let's begin!

    1) Put your Xiaomi Mi 11 phone into fastboot
    2) Type this : "fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta" and then drag and drop your vbmeta.img (this will flash the vbmeta and disable verification)
    3) Then , type : "fastboot reboot fastboot" and press enter
    4) You should now see "FASTBOOTD" instead of "FASTBOOT" on your screen
    5) Now, type : "fastboot flash system" and then drag and drop your GSI .img
    6) Type "fastboot reboot recovery"
    7) Now, using MIUI Recovery wipe all your data
    8) Reboot and pray it works

    That's it, you've now escaped MIUI Jail!

    Hello,
    I created an archive allowing us to flash a gsi rom with ease.

    Here is the procedure for the user.

    The user download his rom (GSI ARM64 A / B)
    and move it to the rom folder (no need to rename the rom because the script scans the folder for installation).

    and once everything is done we double click on the install.bat to proceed with the installation.

    and if driver is missing, no need to search the internet for hours because there is a driver archive

    fastboot (./driver/fastboot)
    fastbootd (./ driver / fastbootd)

    I wanted to know if you could update your post with the archive I created here is the download link of the archive

    For now , the only bug i encountered is FOD not working , but i will test more stuff and update here

    Update #1 : Sound is not working

    FIX : Enable "Use alternate audio policy" and "disable audio effects" in Phh treble settings

    After a lot of testing , i find phhusson's AOSP to be the best.

    Update #2 : Don't set brightness lower than 50%, else it bricks
