Its a nice place tbh.

But guys like you make it not so nice TBH

EDIT: when u dont know what Im talking about...read your last commits ;)
You know what... Because you're a senior member, you have more experience than me. So, because I'm a new member, why not give an advice in a nice way? You really have to be like that?

It mostly is if you don't disrespect another person's work who has been as generous to give up their time to develop for a device they don't even own. If you could provide anything remotely constructive, perhaps it wouldn't be dismissed as hate so quickly.
Oh ok

3. Reboot into TWRP
4. Flash the GSI kernel normally
5. Flash magisk

It might reboot two times btw

What's the difference between this rom and "pixel experience" one?

Pixel Experience has Pixel 3 like software with all wallpapers and Google apps preinstalled and Dirty unicorn has more customization options

Hey there, i need the PHH settings too, cause some apps need the "Compatibility max aspect Ratio" set to "Infinite". Otherwise the apps are having ugly black stripes and 2 corners are round. Please brings them back.

I have already mentioned it cause i use many custom apps. Dont think its coming back. Pretty sad about it cause du and pe sgsi roms are the best in terms of performance. I dont really rely on antutu but i got 275k with pe which is the top score i got...

phh said there was a lineage related commit which prevents this setting from working. So even if I brought back the phh settings to be visible even changing the setting wouldn't change anything. The fix is currently incompatible I'm afraid.

His settings worked for for KODi, for example. It is only not working in Pixel experience roms, thats right. But in this rom, it was perfect working, like in phh treble vanilla rom. :good: Where could i download older builds of your Dirty Unicorns rom?

    Dirty Unicorns Semi GSI for Samsung Devices
    By CodeFox & OpenSauce9810

    I'm no longer maintaining this thread, check the note 9 thread here for latest updates

    What is this?
    This is a Semi Generic System Image. That means it's a generic system image that's been optimized as much as possible for our Samsung Devices.

    How the heck do I flash this?
    It's slightly different than flashing a zip, so here's what you need to do.
    • Download the image file
    • Flash Endurance GSI Kernel in TWRP
    • Flash BRJ6 Vendor
    • Flash the System Image to your System Partition
    • Optional if you want root (but reccomended): Reboot to recovery again then flash your choice of Magisk. I use 17.1 as I can get galaxy wear to work with that version.
    • Reboot your device and you should be good to go! No need to flash gapps as they're included.

    03.12.2018
    • Initial Release

    05.12.2018
    • Updated sources to 9.0 r21 release. (December Security Patch)
    • Gapps included, (dialer and messenger also included so you won't start without a phone or sms app)
    • Bootanimation changed to reduce boot times
    • Tweaks to ambient play ticker so it clears when you clear media notifications
    • Further performance tweaks thanks to @malinathani animations transition smoother now.

    06.12.2018
    • PHH Settings Removed.
    • Dual Speaker permanently integrated, will always persist and no longer needs to be activated.
    • Enhanced brightness ranges permanently integrated.
    • Sync latest DU Sources
    • Potential ratio fix for S9/S9+ Devices.

    Yeah..... I wish someone would make an android pie rom for the galaxy S9 plus specifically (not you... ehh)

    If there was a stable device tree that was able to build device specific ROMs then I would have been happy to do so. We've already been attempting to do so, but they've been too unstable to release. I don't even have an s9 or s9+ but I'm supporting them in my sGSI's for people that do. Some people are so ungrateful.
