Seems Phh has got an ZF8 now and put some overlays in his latest GSI

AOSP 11.0 v309

@phhusson phhusson released this 11 hours ago

  • [Zenfone 8] Fix boot, audio, camera hole, dt2w
  • [Doogee S95] Add support for dt2w (always enabled, not togglable)
  • Fix BT voice calls on some Exynos devices
  • Expand "use alternate audio policy" to Exynos devices. Used to fix for instance voice BT voice calls
  • Expand "use alternate audio policy" to newer Qualcomm devices. Can fix jack for some
  • Fix voice calls no longer working after some time (Thanks @eremitein)
Treble Presets:
Update, installed V309, A/B arm 64 on my ZF8.
Running very nicely, not found any bugs or other nonfunctional parts. GCam install and runs nicely.

To install: (easy to hardbrick so be careful)

Download GSI
Download vbmeta.img from google

Unlock bootloader (note: guarantee blown)

reboot fastboot
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img (that you downloaded from google)
fastboot reboot fastboot (to fastbootd)
fastboot flash system image.img (the gsi unpacked to .img )
go back or reboot to recovery
wipe data
reboot system

Do these GSIs have the black dark theme or is it only the grey one as per your screenshot?

I making an firmware updater for GSI, so no need to go back to stock to have latest firmware installed. Testing in progress

Is there any update for this? I tried to go back to stock but the fastboot commands in the raw image were giving me these errors - Command not supported in default implementation.
