Yes, it is the best rom for me since the pph settings where removed in DU. Kodi ist running in full screen mode with phh treble rom, when the "compatibility max aspect ratio" is set to inifinite under "misc features". The phh treble rom ist running stable with the YEET Kernel from Pixel Experience 9.0 V3 thread by rainbow dash.
Performance good and dual speakers working with the yeet kernel and phh rom?

Yes, dual speaker is working with YEET kernel, and all other samsung specific things in PHH settings. Performance is the best under Pie.

It should be a separate thread for PHH AOSP 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.

    • Initial Release

    • 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.

    • 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.

    New build released. see OP for details.
    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?
