    Hi!

    First: I am NOT a dev or contributor of this rom. Please visit before going ahead: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/gsi-11-lineageos-18-x-gsi-all-archs.4205461/
    Second: You do anything at your own risk and should know how to recover a non booting device!

    Just playing around with this rom on my SHT-AL09, tested on version 20210317 so far:

    Working
    - Mobile network including 4G (German carrier Telekom)
    - Outgoing & Incoming calls
    - Bluetooth
    - 2,4 & 5g Wifi
    - Front & Back camera
    - Video recording
    - MTP
    - SDcard
    - GPS (seems to be working on Telegram)
    - Fingerprint reader

    Not Working:
    - Mobile network icon shows no signal strength
    - VoLTE
    - VoWIFI

    How to install:
    - Make a backup.
    - Device needs to have bootloader unlocked.
    - Visit the above link again --> sourceforge --> lineage-18.x and download version "...treble_arm64_bv*" + unpack it.
    - Visit: https://www.xda-developers.com/flash-generic-system-image-project-treble-device/ (I have done it via bootloader method.)

    How to update:
    - Dont know yet. :)

    Unfortunately I cant get TWRP to work, so I cant test gapps or root. If you have a clue, please let me know - thx!

    So you tested a GSI Lineage ROM on the your M5, is it rooted? Should be great to see magisk included in any room, i use Phh treble Quack, it's pre-rooted with su.

    Hi Massima,
    Sorry for this noob question - where would I find the M5 entry in the phh's wiki?
    And generally, is it possible to install a treble rom on the M5 with gapps and functioning bluetooth? I've been using Openkirin so far but no luck with bluetooth there.
    Many thanks for any help you can offer.
    This is the link, just search your device mine is the M5 8" wifi (sht-w09). You can flash a vanilla (no gapps), the gapps version (be aware is Read Only). if you need a rewritable System partition download the vndklite version (arm64-AB-gapps-vndklite is 2,9Gb but it will not fit in the standard partition <2,9GB ).
    I haven't ever tested the bluetooth so i can't say if it works.

    @spoo333: i tried to send an image from my M5 to the pc and viceversa with bluetooth, no problem.

    @Steffe89:
    1. i read in the phh' s telegram channel to remove root with the securize option, then clean the cache. I did't test it.
    2. I found this in the phh's gsi channel:
    flash super su phh
    create sbin
    edit init.environ.rc (it's on /)
    add line
    export PATH /sbin:/vendor/bin:/system/bin
    save
    remove su in system/bin
    done flash magisk

    Once again i don't test it, i'm using phh supersu. See/write here.

    Massima, that's encouraging to hear re bluetooth. Hope Bluetooth headphones would work too...
    I haven't a bluetooth headphone so i cannot test it😔
