Can you please tell the full steps for installation( from unlocking a boatloader).... I am using Honor 9 lite ...please tell me about room can I use as a daily driver everything works fine or not how we get updates after installing a rom

For starters you need an unlocked bootloader.
Then do a factory reset
Then go into fastboot and flash the rom using:
fastboot flash system <imgname>

Then reboot using fastboot reboot

If it bootloops:

You need to be on stock rom(including stock recovery for a gsi to work)

Try doing a factory reset again from the stock recovery

Make sure you downloaded arm64 and not arm as our processor is 64bit(happened to me )

Check if the rom works for others, if it does flash stock rom and try again

Don't flash gapps if it is included as it can give forcestop errors.



The rom works properly and for me hotspot was fine and was working too. Flashlight couldn't be turned on from the notification bar but after a few days it got fixed by itself?
Just use an app from playstore for that.

Some USSD codes don't work

VOLTE don't work

The UI is a bit laggy but is tolerable. Change animations to 1x in developer options for a smoother experience.

Overall the rom can be used as a DD and provides a cool stock pie experience.
For the camera use GCam as it worked for me and quality is much much better. Unfortunately I couldn't take videos with it so you can use some other apps for video but for pictures GCam is best till now.

This is the rom that I felt worked properly in my device, out of around 5 ROMs I tried.

For updates, check if the developer uploaded one build after you downloaded the rom. Flash it just like you flashed it before. No factory resets necessary.

Later after everything works fine install TWRP as anything can go wrong while using a rom(but don't factory reset with it , the device will bootloop and you'll have to flash stock again, only do factory resets using stock recovery)

And don't lock the bootloader with a rom installed.

Well you can get the pills and it's pretty cool and works flawlessly. In settings navigate to gesture and enable swipe home button(or whatever its called).

RR runs on Oreo so itll look like any other stock android ROM.

Regarding Jio , I don't think you can call via native dialer as pixel experience treble ROMs don't have VOLTE enabled.

But you can use the Jio4GVoice app from playstore to place calls as 4G is working.

Are you sure you flashed the a only arm 64version?
We're you on stock rom?
If not did you flash stock rom before flashing the gsi?
And if you had stock rom try factory resetting it.

Well you're not on stock you might need to flash the stock rom using HuRupdater.
Or flash TWRP, wipe data, system, cache, dalvik cache.
Then flash the image from fastboot again (skip the "fastboot -w" use "fastboot flash system (name).img")

Make sure you flash the arm 64 a only version. Try downloading again.

Jio4gVoice should work but you need to enable data(mobile data) for it work ?. But since we get free data even if there is no data pack it's not much of a problem.

I haven't checked If always on display is there but it could be there

For updates flash the later builds once it is uploaded. You cannot update via settings but have to repeat the steps to flash the image via fastboot. But while updating you won't loose your files as no factory reset is necessary.
You won't get any notifications about updates and you'll have to check manually on the site for a newer build.

Make sure you flash only the arm 64 a only builds.

But flash at your own risk ?

Stock recovery is necessary to flash this gsi or we can use twrp for this because I want to backup my system before I proceed

I tried with both and it worked fine for me.
If you have stock recovery now, do a factory reset before installing the gsi.
If you have TWRP now, wipe system data cache and dalvik-cache.

Since we don't have a proper working TWRP backups might not work properly.
It's recommended to download and keep the 3 zip files of stock rom(you can find it in firmware finder(there are 3 files for each version ) before flashing anything else.

So if you mess up you can revert to stock.

If you're thinking of restoring the TWRP backup after flashing the gsi, that might not be a good idea as it might cause force stop errors.

The updates can be found from where you download the gsi in the first place(look for an upload after the one you downloaded) and make sure it's arm 64 a only.

    Hi guys this is my first thread

    lets cut to the chase ,I flashed pixel experience gsi and it works flawless

    How to install:

    1.unlock your bootloader
    2.if you have custom rom and twrp recovery go to stock rom with stock recovery!!!!
    3.download the gsi https://github.com/phhusson/treble_experimentations/wiki/Generic-System-Image-%28GSI%29-list

    4.reboot to bootloader using the power button and volume down button , open command prompt and type this 2 code VERY IMPORTANT
    fastboot -w
    fastboot flash system system-arm64-aonly-gapps-su.img
    5.after flashing reboot device ….device will get bootloop this is fine! after the 3rd boot device will boot to stock recovery and will say to reset the phone
    so reset the phone
    If the phone resets then that's it congratulations your phone now has pixel experience reboot device
    If the phone does not reset then its ok! shutdown the device and go to fastboot and flash twrp and go to stock rom once again using Huru Updater and go to developer options and enable OEM Unlock then reboot and flash gsi
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/9-lite/development/stock-rom-indian-firmware-c675-t3813875
    After flashing stock rom again boot the device and after reaching the home screen shut down the device and again try Step 4 and Step 5
    6.After flashing the gsi it is recommended to do factory reset to avoid settings stopped errors....
    7.It is also possible to flash other andoid pie gsi I have not tried if you try let me know!

    Since I was experimenting I couldn't record my progress if you can record it would be great!:eek:

    Whats Working?

    Except Hotspot Almost everything works:D




    I have attached screenshots below

    Buddy there are two files of pixel experience. which did you install?

    PixelExperienceP-arm64-aonly.zip

    Thanks for sharing. Should I switch from emui? I just flashed the B187 last week.

    *Any fix for hotspot as of now and can we expect it in the near future?
    *Does the camera work?
    *How's the ram management?
    *Battery life
    *Does the phone lag, like, is there any lag in the UI?
    *Have you tried gaming on this?
    *Do you recommend this as a daily driver?

    Know that's a lot of questions but would be grateful if you could help.?

    Hospot does not work
    Camera Quality is poor
    Flash light does not work
    Battery is not so great but mangeable
    Phone runs buttery smooth... No lag whatsoever
    Gaming experience is great but battery falls rapidly
    Overall it can be used as DD but you have to sacrifice camera quality and battery life

    I'd love to try it out but the rom bootloops for me.
    Try flashing the p20 camera magisk module
    Bro P20 camera magisk modules is for oreo 8.0 it will not work for pie but the developer said that he is working for pie support
