What is Project Treble:
Project Treble basically partitions your device into two separate partitions, a system and a vendor: system contains your generic system image, while vendor partition has your device specific files required for booting and running your phone. This way we can easily change the system image and be able to run our device on different system images with the same kernel and vendor partition
Read more about Project Treble

What's a GSI?:
A GSI literally means Generic System Image. It is a general system image meant for no specific device. Treble enabled devices have the capability to run a GSI. You can find a GSI here: Phh-Treble

Xiaomi Poco F1 hardware vs Treble implementation:
Xiaomi Poco F1 is an A-only device. This means that regarding the GSI images (GSI = Generic System Image) to be used, you need to get ARM64 and A-Only system images​

How to report bugs:
Logcat, a simple description of the bug, kmsg or dmseg depending on the bug​

What's Packaged in the zip:
Bootimage
A compressed vendor image​

How to use:
  • Reboot to recovery (Custom TWRP recovery for Poco F1- @TheStrix recovery recomended])
  • Format /system, /data and /cache
  • Flash Modified vendor flashable zip package(One we shared. Needs to be flashed only once)
  • Install the GSI system image you wish to use (How to flash a Generic System Image (GSI) on Project Treble supported devices - Direct link)
  • Reboot
  • If GSI doesn't include gapps flash and boot
Important notes:
  • Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.

Working:
  • Camera (and flashlight)
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Telephony (Calls and Data)
  • Audio (Record and Playback)
  • Video Playback
  • Sensors
  • GPS
  • VoLTE
  • Dt2W

Broken:
  • Found something? Report it!

FAQ: WIP

for below reasons
  • VoLTE
  • Proper Notch support
  • Adaptive brightness (next build)

How do I use this?
  • Just follow below steps
  • Flash vendor zip
  • Flash the appropriate gsi image
  • Reboot
If you want to use gapps
  • After booting Restart to recovery
  • flash gapps

I have no 4g signal? is it gone forever?:(

  • Check network settings and switch to 4g

Volte Isnt working??

  • Check APN if not present create one and reboot. If present just reboot

Hotspot is not working..help!!!!

  • This is known issue in GSI kindly always use phh's latest build (Recommended)

"insert some rom name here" has an issue with feature

  • Contact the maintainer of that rom

I am already using GSI. What should I do?

  • Just flash vendor.zip and reboot

Can I flash Custom kernels?
No. That's why we have included Derp kernel by default

Can this be flashed for any other reason?
NO This is just for PIE/9.0(GSI images). If you plan on experimenting please dont report on thread.

Can I Flash Oreo GSI after flashing this vendor?
No. This supports only Android Pie

Stock MIUI Vendor Links thanks to @akhilnarang

https://downloads.akhilnarang.me/MIUI/beryllium-8.9.20-vendor.zip






WARNING: If you want to flash NORMAL ROM[LOS etc] again just flash STOCK VENDOR. Flashing los/other roms directly on this modified vendor might cause unwanted BUGS
Note: flashing stock vendor will encrypt the phone so dont forget to flash "Disable force encrypt zip".

Quick question. Can this vendor be used for miui ROMs as well (because it'll be easier to port MI8 Pie if vendor support is available)

---------- Post added at 05:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:14 PM ----------

My bad, what is HD notification?

In some 8.1 and mostly 9 ROMs you have a notification which can't be dismissed saying "device is HD capable" if you have VOLTE. This will get rid of that annoying slot for you.

Hi, I've been experiencing bootloops both in HavocOS and PE, and when I rebooted to TWRP the data partition is encrypted. Is that normal or have I missed a step?

NVM, FML, I was installing the stock miui vendor file instead of the vendor-r1 file. Installed vendor-r1 file and everything works fine. thanks!

Any of the equalizers(including playstore ones) are not working in AOSP GSI? Anyone else facing this problem? Is it vendor related issue?

    Thanks for that, it's always nice to have people supporting GSIs :)

    There is a much cleaner and easier method since ~ a month (my v104 release I think):
    https://github.com/phhusson/apps_repacker_aosp
    It basically takes stock ROM, and creates an ims.apk, that can be simply installed like any other APK.

    [*]Proper Notch support

    [*]Adaptive brightness (next build)
    A simple PR (which has already been made for many devices) to https://github.com/phhusson/vendor_hardware_overlay/ would be enough to fix those directly on the GSI :)
    I'm more than happy to provide help to do that

    If you fix or hit any other issue, please tell me, I want to include as many fixes as possible.
