LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9.0 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Code:
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */
LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

-------------

Hello, I'm very excited to tell you that Project Treble is ready to run on our phone. Although it's not stable with always something broken, It's still a nice chance to undergo other ROMs that you want.

Beware that it is only a proof-of-concept try to let everyone know our device is still powerful. They are still well prepared for future Android release. However, the GSIs will never be more stable than device-specific ROMs. This Treble ROM is not suitable for daily use.

The main reason why official LineageOS of our device didn't ship with Project Treble is that we don't have fully binderized camera HALs from Oneplus. If we want to support Treble there must be a lot of compromises.

Things working:
Everything, including camera.

Things not working:
1. [A-only & A/B] SELinux is set to permissive for most GSIs.
Unnecessary and won't fix for now.
2. [A/B] Reboot and stuck at boot animation while GSI installation.
Solution: Use adb for a reboot, don't just hold the power button. After this the system will boot, at least we could get console-ramoops correctly for debugging.

The step-by-step guide on how to treblize your device:
Treble needs a partition called "Vendor", but our device does not have this device. What we need to do is to create a vendor partition by our selves.
I made a custom TWRP Treble build to do this process, here is what you should do in TWRP.
0. Warning
Our device is really old, some users may experience storage failure (Known as CRC failure), please be careful when you treblize your device. If you meet any problem, please check the 9008 unbrick guides in the forum.
1. Flash this TWRP in the download link below.
2. Boot it up and go to "Advanced" -> "Terminal", Type treblize and run.
a30e1dfbe34c65fb9d887a30a0e57014f103b8.png

Treblize is a shell that we could modify our partition. It basically does the same thing as the commands below.
Code:
/sbin/sgdisk --typecode=5:8300 /dev/block/sdf
/sbin/sgdisk --change-name=5:vendor /dev/block/sdf
3. Reboot your phone to your current system to check if there is storage failure.
It's very important. Some of the users report it may cause storage broken. You'd better check it first before flashing LOS Treble.
4. Reboot your phone to TWRP.
5. Flash LOS Treble in the download link below.
After these processes, you have got a treblized Oneplus3. Boot it up to check if everything works, or just trying other GSIs anyway.

The step-by-step guide on how to flash GSIs:
0. Treblize.
1. Choose and flash LOS Treble solution first for the vendor partition.
Because of the supporting of system-as-root for our device, you can now use every GSIs if possible. I personally recommend the system-as-root solution for future android standards, although they are basically the same some old recovery install scripts may be broken like opengapps will not working anymore according to the report.
2. Flash A-only or A/B GSI image according to the flag in the download section.
3. Wipe data.

Q&A:
1. Q: What are the limitations to our devices?
A: Sizes. Our device has 3154116608 bytes or 3.15G of system storage. Some GSIs may be larger than our device and due to TWRP's bug it won't be recognized. Here is a guide for linux users to make self modified GSIs images of smaller size.
Code:
sudo simg2img <system.img> system.ext4.img
sudo mount -t ext4 -o loop system.ext4.img system/
sudo chown -R <username>:<username> system/
#then enter the system/app folder and remove gmail, maps, google play music, drive, etc.
makeext4fs -T 0 filecontexts -l 3154116608 -L system -system -s flash.img system/
2. Q: Something is broken in some GSIs!
A: That may or may not be our device's fault.
3. Q: Can I install other third-party kernels?
A: You need to make sure that kernel supports mounting vendor partition, or it will brick your device.
Also, the device now is supporting system-as-root, which requires new kernel patchs. Kernels claimed that for treble previously may not work anymore.
4. Q: How to revert my treblized device?
A: Unnecessary. But you can do it yourself with the sgdisk command-line tool, or just use the 9008 tool if you are lazy.
5: Q: How do I install a non-treble ROM with my "treblized" device?
A: As normal. They won't affect each other.

Good work guys, I think I'll wait for the camera issue to be fixed before risking to brick my device though :D

This is incredibly exciting! I hope this also inspires OnePlus to release official treble support.
Before i dare to flash this i would like to know, what is the rollback plan for this if you want to bring the device back to factory state and does it break compatibility with for example the stock rom and stock recovery?

For those that already jumped ship and installed a GSI image, can you test if one of the following mods works?
Arnova v8.2 https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.2.apk
Tolyan v1.0.7 https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/...f/MGC_5.3.015_B-S-G-based_v.1.0.7_TlnNeun.apk
Skulshady https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/skulshady_gcam_5.1.018_Mod_v6_fix.apk

These are various modded APK's that may contain a fix for the camera issues. No root required to flash.

You don't need to roll back. Just like op5, it's still working if oneplus offer us official treble support.
At least you can either modify the partition label or use 9008 tools to return stock.

No, the camera does not work at all.

Wow, excellent!
Was waiting for this since so long.
Amazing work.
Gonna try it out soon.
Some questions though,
Can I use any of the GSI or I'll have to use provided lineage GSI only?
If I want to use an android pie GSI, then which gapps should I use? I need full gapps.
Also, The camera isn't even working in third party applications such as WhatsApp also?
Which 9.0 GSI is good, is there any AOSP GSI?
Are there any other bugs?
Final thing, can someone please provide me the link for the thread for oneplus3t where 9008 unbrick recovery procedure is there?

From watching this video, I guess that Lineage stock camera app doesn't work, but others do, correct?

    Hey guys! We're back.

    Steps to install Q Beta 6 GSI

    1. Download Simon's latest TWRP and flash it.

    2. Make sure you're on OOS 9.0.4 or later firmware.

    3. If you are encrypted, you will have to clear encryption via TWRP

    4. Wipe /system, /data and reboot to Recovery.

    5. Go to Advanced -> Terminal and type in "Treblize" and executive it. Wait for the partitioning to complete.

    6. Flash Simon's latest LineageOS 16.0 Treble build.

    7. Wipe all partitions except /Vendor.

    8. Flash GSI to System Partition.

    9. Flash Erfans permissiverv4(optional), zygotev2, lagfix.

    10. Flash Magisk Canary 19.4. Stable/Beta will not work.

    11. Reboot to system.

    12. Download latest Google Play Services and Google Play Store (non beta versions) from Apkmirror.


    Thanks to Simon's work on Treble.

    Hi, thanks to PeterCxy, we find a method to load camera shim library.
    Flash zip below after you flashed GSI, and camera should be working again. Confirmed sGSI PR1 is working.
    However, it's just a dirty hack, and we are still trying to port camera hal.
    23
    Now we can use camera on phh 9.0 based GSIs with linkerfix v3+. Confirmeta PE 9.0 GSI Beta works.
