I had twrp flashed on boot.
So fastboot reboot fastboot did not sent me to fastbootD mode.

I had to flash back the original xiaomi.eu/boot.img to make it succeed

Thank you for your tutorial.
I succeeded in installing Lianeage 18.1 but can't get gapps installed via TWRP (error 70) like other people here.
(Micro Gapps from OpenGapps ARM64 for Android 11)
Any idea ?
Thanks

No, I haven't faced any major issue.
Thanks for the info. A follow-up question. Which image did you use ab/a/ab-vndklite.

Did you just follow the steps in this thread or did you tweak them a bit for Lisa. I have the same and am facing issues while installing the pe+ gsi. Thanks.

Exactly same.
I guess you are having issue in entering into fastbootD.

if you already in fastboot, just type 'reboot fastboot'
Or type your issue directly

The issue i have is already mentioned by dwensch in pg2.
Invalid sparse file format at header magic
Resizing 'system_b' FAILED (remote: 'Not enough space to resize partition')
fastboot: error: Command failed

Download latest adb platform tools from here:

Open cmd, drag the folder to cmd.
Also copy gsi system image inside extracted folder above and try.

If i am not wrong it should flash on 'a' partition.
Try above steps

    Ok thanks. 5a is a good device. Happy days with your new device. Cheers.

    Hi, first of all, I'm not a dev or else just user who had difficulties to flash GSI rom on my phone... Was 7 years with a samsung galaxy Note 3, with twrp....So easy to flash....
    with the help of @gr0ndpa, thanks to him.....

    Now I will explain how to flash easily with files attached

    1/ first of all you need a phone and drivers installed, use xiaomi pc suite, unzip and install it
    2/ you need to activate USB debug in dev options.
    3/ dl adb folder unzip it and put in C
    4/ run command and type
    Code:
    cd /adb
    5/ then
    Code:
    adb devices
    to check if phone recognised
    6/
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    once in fast boot
    7/
    Code:
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    wait finished type to enter in fastbootD
    8/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    9/
    Code:
    fastboot flash system
    LiR 313.XXX.img
    you will have a system error, but wait the flash begin in few seconds
    at the end wait ok then
    10/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot recovery
    on stock recover
    11/ wipe data and reboot with +/- and PWR

    and you're done...

    In case you want to flash custom kernel or patched boot image to root with magisk, you have to

    12/
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader

    Copy kernel boot image to C drive and rename kernel boot image to boot.img.

    13/
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot c:\boot.img
    14/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot


    In case you want to flash twrp put the file to adb folder and type in fastboot
    15/
    Code:
    fastboot boot twrp.img



    You can check what I ve done on tuto ss...

    if you have some comments, don't hesitate...
    I flashed LiR 18.1 rom and very happy with it.....

    After I enter this, it just stays on waiting for any device.

    Update: I was able to figure it out. My device had no drivers so I went search through updates on windows and installed a LeMobile Android driver os it shows up properly in device manager.
    because you don't have xiaomi drivers installed...install xiaomi pc suite and you will have drivers installed...

    o.t. - but maybe you can also explain me what "fastbootD" (written in yellow) is ?!?
    It's written like this to be sure that people read correctly and see difference with only fastboot...it seems D mode bypass some limitations, but not sure exactly..Google is not always your friend specially on this...I'm sure that if you don't use it you can't flash correctly GSI builds...

    oh, sorry for my english - suite was already installed before !
    can't flash because I can't find .img and miflash doesn't recognize the phone .....
    have also tried different usb slots
    You sure you take fastboot version???
