Read this to the "T'.

Install Android 12 Pixel GSI instructions:
1 Unlocked bootloader
2 Windows laptop or CPU
3Your Region Stock "Tonga" firmware from lolinet.. and the PIXEL 12 GSI firmware from GitHub. Product.img file to resize the GSI (see attachment)
Open two folders on computer and put Tonga stock firmware in one and the GSI 12 ROM in the other folder along with the product.img file and the vbmeta.img from your stock firmware.
4.Turn off device and on the computer open a command prompt inside the Stock firmware folder.
5.While Holding "volume down" connect phone to computer you'll be in fastboot mode.
6 Flash stock firmware using these commands. Just copy and paste into the command prompt.
(After about 10 minutes phone will reboot to stock welcome screen)
This is Metro by T-Mobile so if using a different stock firmware only difference is the number of (super.img_sparsechunk) so check your stock firmware folder and add or delete any super.img_sparsechunks commands if necessary...you see Metro by TMobile has "24" of them..

Ready to flash Android 12 let's go!!!!

After you see welcome screen turn off device.

1.Open Pixel GSI 12 folder and open a command prompt inside the folder
2Connect phone to PC and put back into fastboot mode.
3Copy and paste these commands to flash the ROM .(Note the GSI you download and unzip the name will be pixel..ab..slim....img..Rename it to "system.img")

fastboot set_active a
fastboot reboot fastboot
fastboot flash product product_gsi.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot -w
fastboot reboot

After about 10 minutes you will boot up to Android 12 Pixel ROM. Yay..

Now to get Bluetooth ,VOLTE,MMS and SMS working follow these instructions.

1.Go through the set up screen and set up everything "offline" uncheck all options .
2 Go into settings and look for "PHH Treble Settings" (Magic happens here) lol
Go to "MISC Features and check these three boxes for Bluetooth fix

"Use alternative way to detect headset.."
"Force -disable A2DP offlload"
Option called Bluetooth Workaround( check Mediatek)

LTE VOLTE FIX
PHH Treble settings
3 Go to "IMS Features" and check the last two boxes then hit "install ims for Mediatek.." then lastly hit "create ims apn"
4 once the ims apk downloads, manually install it from the notification drop down. (Don't reboot if it says to)
5. Open stock GSI ROM phone dialer and type
*#*#4636#*#* Three options will appear choose 'phone information"
6 Change data option using the little arrow drop down to (GSM WCDMA LTE (PRL) see full image.
7 Reboot phone,,,, Once rebooted go to mobile data settings and check the VOLTE options... ...Now test calls and text you should have VOLTE BLUETOOTH in call voice, MMS,SMS everything working like me...
8 Root if you want ,,same way just patch the boot image with magisk manager 23 or 24. And fastboot flash the magisk boot.img.
Profit... Now set up your phone to your liking.

Kernel Update!!

TMO and Boost Mobile has an update for December 2021

I extracted the boot.img from the newest firmware and noticed a November security patch and performance boost.

Out of the box this phone was laggy and felt like a 100 dollar phone. Now with Android 12, an updated kernel and keeping refresh rate at 90mhz. This phone feels just as fast as the stylus 5G 480 soc. This mediatek Helio G37 is not that bad once it's overclocked ..
I set governor to "performance'
CPU min Big clusters 2.3ghz
Little clusters 1.8ghz
I can't find a way to overclock the GPU yet.
GPU high frequency is 650mhz. Similar to stylus 5 g..

Running smooth with Great battery life..

Well out the gate this phone was pretty decent but with the media check for some reason they have more bloatware than actual system apps.. it's ridiculous I went about half of my whole list of programs system and user included and disabled half of the system apps because they were all bloatware

Ram management has been excellent on this GSI 12 pixel. I added 2gb of swap for virtual ram and i can actually see its working..
4gb hardware ram +,2gb of virtual ram =6gb..sweet spot for a laggless experience...

Hey I've got bootloader unlocked & the firmware flashed successfully. And I've tried 4 times to flash pixel12 & a different gsi and Everything works till it goes to flash part 4 of 12 and it fails. The 2nd gsi was in 11 chunks and it failed à the 4th chunk. Any help would be great ñ

So I got the tonga about a week ago, bootloader unlocked rooted with magisk and firmware flashed all successful without a hiccup.

But every time I go to flash the pixel 12 or an alternate GSI of the same criteria everything works up until when it's flashing the system it fails that trunk four of 12, and when I try and flash a different GSI it too freezes at chunk four of 11. This is my daily driver so after messing up I always got to reflash the new firmware and start from scratch. Does anybody have any clue what it might be? Could it possibly be the drivers on my windows 11 laptop? That's the only thing I can think of unless I'm missing something.

I installed the GSI according to the directions up top. And ain't no help will be greatly appreciated thank you.

I thought I posted about this earlier so if it's a double post if I notice it all fall back and delete it.

I got it flashed & working, with the fastboot codes provided, only thing is I had to flash vbmeta in regular fastboot not fastbootd. This phone seems to be vary gsi friendly. I'm running corvus v52.1 right now and it runs great, not much of a lag other then with the camera. I like a11 more. Biggest thing is LTE works with this rom I couldn't get it working consistently with other roms
