CAOS 11 (Custom AOSP OS) is a project which based on @phhusson's Treble GSI AOSP 11. I began it because original project have not only pros (stability, speed, support) but also some issues and limitations - pure AOSP code have some bugs / haven't much useful things and it's a hard way pulling it. So i did this fork. System can run with SELinux enforced state, as an original Phh AOSP GSI. Fully compatible with PHH-Treble patches. Has dynamic root which can be activated/deactivated without reboot - 'su' binary and SuperUser app (can works on all devices even with system read-only). Also has dynamic SafetyNet helper (but it compatible not with all devices), users have four ways to pass SafetyNet: a. just enable SafetyNet option (recommended) b. disable SafetyNet and enable "Spoof Pixel 5" then reboot c. enable both options and reboot d. mount system as RW and create empty file /system/phh/secure (legacy method), and in the Recovery do Wipe Data or Factory reset

UPDATE VERSION
latest build:
2021.04.24
treble patches: v306
SPL: 5 April 2021

FEATURES/CHANGES

vanilla, gapps, go-gapps: all possible architectures

NAMING
Some information you should know about knowing what type of gsi it is

<ARCH>_xyZ

<ARCH>
can either be arm, a64 (arm32_binder64) or arm64
x
can either be a or b
y
can either be v, o, g or f
Z
can be N or S

b
= a/b
a = a-only

g = gapps
o = gapps-go
v = vanilla (no gapps included)
f = floss (free & open source apps instead gapps)

N = no superuser
S = superuser included
Z = dynamic superuser included

-lite = for VNDK Lite vendors (also can help with broken camera even on normal VNDK vendors)

so in most common example "arm64_avZ" is ARM64 A-only vanilla with dynamic superuser

KN0WN BUGS
• excluding fixes, the same as on AOSP Roar (in some cases doesn't work: broadcasting on TV, calls via BT; offline charging does not work normally etc etc)
NOTE: always test ROM first without Magisk (with clean boot ramdisk). and don't send me bug reports if you have:
a) Magisk installed
b) modified/custom vendor or kernel
c) dirty flashing rom without wiping data
d) modified props values (another device fingerprint and so on)

Hi,

I flashed CAOS R 2021.04.19 in my HTC U12 life but DigitalWellbeing tools are not available. Is it only available for pixel devices ?

And I'm unable to transfer files using USB connection? Any suggestions or work around to get it working ?

Thank you.

Yes, I flashed caos-v305-210419-arm64-agZ. I'm unable to find any settings/app entry for WellBeing.

@eremitein - thanks for your work. The ROM is great and fast.

I have it installed on Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro. There are some problems with sound and screen backlight but both of them can be resolved from Phh treble settings. I have posted solutions in X3 Pro thread.

I have one question - in case I would like to update CAOS in future. Is there any "official" way to do this ? Is it possible at all ? Or clean flash is required every time you post new version ?

How to update GSI

< only same ROM variants >

• go to TWRP, make wipe Dalvik cache (optionally, but recommended)
• install new GSI img to system (or reboot to fastboot/fastbootd and flash GSI)
• boot to TWRP again, resize System
• reinstall same GApps if used before

note: dirty update is not supports by me, do not send bug reports - if you will have bugs first try clean install

Big fan of this CF. I hope there is a option to update (with further versions) using fastboot/adb. (Without loosing data) My Oukitel WP6 just supports these 2 options :).

I have one too, and you can simply flash a new version on top of the old one in fastboot without wiping, works totally fine without loss of data.

BTW @eremitein , did you work some magic on VoLTE in the latest releases, or is it on @phhusson side? For me it just works out of the box suddenly, no more fiddling with IMS or APN settings, see screenshot. This is on your latest crDRom, really really nice, see screenshot:

So basically just:

fastboot flash system xxx.img

?
