How many more gsi you tested ?Successfully installed CorvusOS 3.0 GSI with Gapps!
However, as mentioned in comments above, do not flash vbmeta and do not delete logical partition. This GSI installation will fail if you do, and you can even end up with a hard brick in some cases.
For anyone interested in trying out Corvus:
- you can download the "arm64_ab-Gapps" here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/tipzbuilds/files/GSIs/CorvusROM/Beta/20220603/
- Extract the .img file
- go into fastbootd (fastboot reboot fastboot)
- fastboot flash system GSI_NAME.img
- fastboot reboot recovery, then wipe data
- optional to make sure: go back into normal fastboot and use "fastboot -w" to erase data
- boot to system
If you get a message stating that the image is too big for system partition, you can install the "arm64_ab" without Gapps.
For some reason I got this message at first, installed without Gapps and booted to system, then re-tried with Gapps and it ended up working..
By other side, @arraki made another post with new_twrp.img and new_fox.img files (thank you!) and explain that it is as simple as flashing one of them as boot partition (but later mentions a lot of issues and repairs and mixed information, I cannot understand what was his conclusion).GSI INSTALL EASY (poco m4 pro 5g/evergreen)
I've made a lot of attempts and spent a lot of time but now I've installed four different GSI in a row (to test if method works...)
It's not a case to loose time with vbmeta dmverity etc I've followed these steps:
For me this has always worked. I've seen that is possible to change rom version or variant (normal / vndk) only repeating steps 8-9 and 12-13, without formatting data, just like a "dirty install".
- download new orangefox recovery -- https://forum.xda-developers.com/attachments/new_fox-img.5566007/
- reboot in fastboot (power + volume down)
- flash latest official firmware with XiaoMiFlash tool
- reboot in fastboot if needed
- fastboot flash New_fox.img
- fastboot reboot recovery
- in setting OTA & ROM I've flagged "Disable DM-verity", Disable crypto, disable blah blah recovery (the latest downside...)
- reboot in fastboot (is already FASTBOOTD, normal fastboot is signed as bootloader...) or power off, reboot inin fastboot and then "fastboot reboot fastboot" (in both case, you'll go in fastbootd via orangefox recovery)
- fastboot flash system system.img (your GSI rom... I use a vanilla version and then I install gapps via magisk-gapps, so I haven't space problem inside SUPER partition )
- fastboot -w
- fastboot erase userdata (if this command doesn't work type fastboot reboot bootloader then fastboot erase userdata)
- fastboot reboot
- if new rom start but remains in boot phase then I power off, restart in recovery (power + volume up) and format data partition from inside orange fox
I hope I was helpful.
I just took another smartphone Redmi Note 11 Pro 5g for myself, I like it more with its design.Hi
I want you to buy this again !!!!
What was the bad point? I'm interested.
Recently, this smartphone has been updated to MIUI 13 and is now an Android 12 vendor.
Orengefox will start, but the system will not.
Also, the data partition cannot be decrypted.
I think this was possible with the android11 vendor.
However, I don't know because I rarely use orengefox.
I don't think it can be used without rebuilding, but what about?
Thanks . did you succeed with Note 11T?I don't have that phone, you can try the steps to install Magisk in the link below,
It is possible, but for this it is necessary to convert the gsi firmware so that they can be flashed through the recovery. I haven't tried it myself, but there is such a converter, after conversion in it, an archive is obtained that can be flashed through recovery.
