This rom is not developed nor maintained by me!
Credits: @ponces

Requirements: full stock EMUI 9.1, with stock recovery_ramdisk

Download arm64-ab-11.0-xxxxx
or arm64-ab-vndklite-11.0-xxxxx

Install like any other GSI Rom including the Nfc patch.

IMPORTANT! Before booting up the ROM, you will need to perform a factory reset in stock recovery!

Quick and easy way to install GSI & NFC :

1. Extract the ROM .img file from the compressed file.
2. Flash extracted ... .img in fastboot , use command
fastboot flash system (file_name).img

4. Run command fastboot reboot , enter TWRP (press and hold Volume Up)
5. In TWRP unmount all except SD Card , Vendor and System (unmount and mount again if needed) and flash NFC patch

6. Go back to the TWRP's main menu, select Reboot > Recovery.
7. Now you can perform factory reset in stock Recovery.
Note: the TWRP will remain instead of eRecovery.

MAGISK ROOT :

(Note: If you don't plan to use TWRP, simply install patched Recovery_ramdisk in fastboot mode. Run command
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk magisk_patched-23.img ).

Install TWRP-9.1

I was recently thinking to switch on that rom because there are no more lineageos updates.
Is there an easy way to backup and restore data from lineage to pixel?

Not at all, it says like if was not installed, I tried super user app and it tells like not rooted. I have almost same Magiqk issue with Andy Yann lineage but Superuser is working on Andy Yann
IMO you are doing something wrong .
If you have followed instructions in OP to the letter, it must work. Today I tested SuperUser, also works .
Try total clean flashing - flash service ROM and try again.

Very strange i made a clean install,
I went back to stock 9.1.0.132 with DLOAD
I unlocked bootloader and flash the rom with fastboot, i flashed TWRP (9.1) for nfc,
I made a wipe with stock recovery, I booted again on TWRP , i flashed magisk mount fix reboot again on TWRP flashed patched recovery on recovery, and exactly same issue,
I used the same twrp for nfc and magisk. Magisk aint working on last andy Yann build either but works on Emiritein Lineage Os build ( but this one is older)

Did you tried with last build?

For Pixel I tried superuser app on fdroid but doesnt work

But it is strange that magisk doesn't work if it works for you
Do I have to flag magisk AND superuser ZIP file ?

    Try this way out:
    - Install Chrome Beta from market
    - Type chrome://flags into the app's address bar
    - search flag 'Android SurfaceControl'
    - switch to Disabled
    - Relaunch
    Worked for me on PE_Plus_312.

    P.S.: Maybe it also works with other versions of Chrome, I haven't tried.

    hello sir , i am using havoc os on my p20 lite . Which rom do u think is lighter and better for daily usage right now?
    Hello, there's only subjectively "best" and that's different for everyone. Everyone has different usage patterns and preferences.
    All GSI Treble ROMs that are compatible with P20 lite are AOSP based on 'phhusson' sources, so the difference in performance, battery life, etc. is minimal.
    The main differences between these ROMs are in the customization options.
    In my experience CAOS is faster, crDRom is customization monster, LiR is a perfect balance between battery efficiency, performance and the customization. And, of course, PixelExperience_Plus also got on the podium. As for DotOS - the previous version 5.1.3 was better, imo.
    And all ROMs have some common bugs - offline charging, VoLTE, native callrecording etc.. If you like to take pictures, you will be disappointed with the GSI camera...
    The only way you'll find the best one for you is by trying them yourself ;).

    On Pixel Exp. some things work easier and more flexible . And I don't think it's just a placebo ;)

    Try this method

    There are several options, I do not remember exactly, but I think that the best results I had with Flasher & Helper
