No, i mean port as customized rom to your device hardware, i know we can port any rom including OEM roms using GSI Erfan GSIs tool but what about opposite?
I want to do that because my device tree and vendor tree are not available in github or any other place.
Your question is very broad. It is effectively the same as asking "Can you port any ROM from one device to any other?" Although a little more generic (GSI's), if your device does not support project treble, then you are kinda in the same boat that the ROM is from a different device. Just as Phone A does not support phone B's ROMs. The devil is in the detail ie specifics.
