Descendant is a customised Android that aims to add useful tweaks over Android 9.
We didn't fill the system with tons of features. We think less is more.

Nothing different from any other GSI.
Just a straight flash via fastboot to /system partition and /cache /data wipes.
It may take up to 5 minutes to boot on some devices.
If it takes longer than 5 minutes, just hold your power button and reboot.

Features.png

I actually can't list all the additions.
It would be a huge wall of text, that every user would probably not even read.
So, check it out with your own eyes in our gallery and in our blog.

Descendant uses phhusson's trees and fixes.
The problems you will face with Descendant are the same that you may face on any other ROM based over phhusson's work.
If something is not working, expect your developer or brand to fix it.
If it's only happening in Descendant, take a log and send us.

Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?
Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.
Bug reports without logs will be ignored.

Bro, can you tell me how you flashed it? I ended on bootloop.
You flashed stock firmware first or dirty flash over other gsi? Thanks in advance
Come from oreo run, format data, types yes reboot recovery and then wipe all except sd, dalvik cache data system. Install system image then reboot recovery and flash gapps if after no reboot block in boot press long reboot it solves.

    New support infrastructure for Descendant project plus some personal considerations

    Before I give out some updates on Descendant status, I'd push my personal opinion on what happened lately over XDA, under the HIDE tags.
    So if you're not interested, just skip the spoiler, relevant infos about the development status will follow after that.

    So, we're at it again.
    First of all, this PERSONAL considerations don't want to be something markable as flame or "attacks" of any kind.
    That's just my personal opinion on what I constantly see happening around XDA forums.
    I may not be one of the "zen-est" person around the world, but I guess that each and everyone of us deserves a bit of comprehension.
    Especially when it comes to XDA.
    Some of us will agree with me that, lately, the XDA forum has been fulfilled by rule-breakers all around.
    Analyzing this situation on the "economical" side they're forum users that generate revenue for this website (as long as they're not on AdBlock or similar) and I totally get the point of "more audience = potentially more revenues to keep the full-time developers/servers running".
    What I honestly don't get, it's why there's a "low enforcing policy" on people that actually don't:
    1. Report useful feedbacks
    2. Respect developers work
    3. Follow the first XDA rule: search before posting.

    In my life I've always tried to not be a crybabe.
    So when I see people that don't comply with rules or that just show off a "non-ethical" forum attitude, I tend to ignore them, till my breaking point.
    I've always encouraged useful bug reports, teaching people how to do it in specific cases.
    But when you see that all you get is "hey this doesn't work blablalbla, you work bad sur kthxbye" (sometimes being even more harsh than that), I guess that a bit of anger towards this kind of things would appear even in a Shaolin Monk.
    Am I trying to justify myself ?
    No.
    But since the mods are so good at berserking me on my outbursts (and I really mean it in a good way), I wonder why a lot of OP starters have still to deal with those kind of people.
    I agree that there will always be people that just won't read, but here the ratio is outta range.
    And please, do not come up with the "rules apply to everyone", because that's an outrageous lie.
    I'm not meaning that it's a lie on purpose, but, maybe this has gone too far to apply the user-technique "ignore/forget and move on" (especially if there are forum rules that should deny this bad behaviours)?

    This, in my honest opinion, is one of the main reasons why day-by-day many developers declines whatever kind of answer over XDA threads moving the support to other communications channels.
    And this to me, it's a threat to XDA.
    We could easily avoid this migration in my opinion, but as long as something won't be done about it, I guess that's how it will keep going.

    tl;dr help us to make XDA a better place.

    Peace out.


    So, in the last days I've work kinda hard to put up a new "infrastructure" for Descendant.
    This includes:
    • Descendant Github Page
      Where you will find the most updated contents and useful tips and also:
      • a Blog
      • a photo gallery
      • download links
      • Descendant infos
      • bug report infos
      • donation links
    • Descendant Project Page
      Where you will be able to see Descendant's progress over reported bugfixes.
    • Descendant Bug Tracker Repo
      A self-explanatory bug tracker that will guide you thru correct bug reporting with a template
    • Descendant Telegram Group
      A nice Telegram group where you will find (almost) real-time support, nice people and some exclusive news/screenshots about the upcoming release.


    That said, stay tuned a lot of stuff is about to happen.
    Peace and zen to everyone.

    NOTE THAT THIS UPDATE REQUIRES FULL WIPES EVEN IF YOU WERE ON A PREVIOUS DESCENDANT VERSION
    A special thanks goes to @linuxct for providing his awesome space to let Descendant be.

    A year has gone by and we have pushed ourselves to the limit to offer our very best product, with bleeding edge technology and never seen before features, as well as offering the userbase a whole different take on Android UI & UX.
    We're sad to say that Descendant isn't just capable to keep up with this for the upcoming Android Q release with our current means, so we are calling it a day.

    Still, we'd thank you all for the feedback provided up till now, we're very proud of what we have achieved.

    Sayonara, Descendants.
