    I am writing this guide with all the steps I did to successfully boot Android P on my Whyred device, I am not responsible for any damage, brick, dead SD and so on.

    All you have to do is:

    -Boot to Recovery (you'll need a Treble Recovery).
    -Go to "Clean" section and perform a Factory Reset by swiping the arrow below.
    -On "Clean" section tap "Advanced Clean" and select all the partitions (Internal storage, USB-OTG and microSD excluded).
    -Go to "Install" section and install last MoKee Rom (in order to boot Android P you'll need MoKee's Vendor).
    -After you succesfully installed MoKee rom's zip, go back to recovery main menu and then again "Install" but now press "Install IMG file" and select P-DP3-sGSI.img mounting it as System Image.
    -Now go back to recovery main menu and then tap on "Mount" section, here simply uncheck and then check again "vendor".
    -Go back to "Install" and then simply install the three files which come after the installation of P-DP3-sGSI.img (POST-sGSI_1_v0.9.zip, POST-sGSI_2_v0.12.zip and POST-sGSI_3.zip in this exact order).
    -Simply reboot to System and...you're DONE!

    If you want Magisk, you'll need to flash it simply going back to Recovery mode but this only after you firstly setup the phone! (Also I don't know if there is a Magisk.zip compatible with Project Treble for Whyred. EDIT: Magisk 16.6 is working flawlessly).

    One question. Can you flash the whole thing to a phone with anti 4 triggered?
    You can do anything with system but don't try to flash firmwares.
