Soo can i go 9?
Yes. This will in most cases work. However! Because there will be so many different components, it is much advised to make it a clean flash. You could, theoretically, dirty flash a few android versions onward if the base (eg. AOSP) is the same and it may work without any implications but some will likely arise in the future.

Essentially, flashing the Android OS is the similar to installing Windows on a computer. You can install Windows for workgroups 3.11 on a system, format C:, then install Windows 10. Both versions will work fine independently and you can install any version at any time. If you'd upgrade from Vista to 10 (dirty), though, things may get a bit ugly.

Another aspect to consider is official vs. aftermarket support. It's smart to flash the latest official release before diving into the wonderful world of ROMs. Take the OnePlus One from 2014 for example. That one needed to be flashed with CyanogenMod 13 to work properly with any subsequent systems, including Android 11 today. This was due to an ugly breakup between CM and OnePlus. CM13 (Android 6) was the last version that contained proper hardware drivers all newer systems are based on so if you jumped from CM12 (Android 5) to LineageOS 15 (Android 8), that usually delivered some issues, while flashing from CM13 to LOS15 was no problem.

Good luck and let us know how it went!

If you
  • can unlock phone's bootloader,
  • can flash a suitable Custom Recovery ( as TWRP ),
  • find a Custom ROM ( as Lineage OS ) what is based on Android 9
then you can give it a try.

about restoring partition,
1) do you have twrp recovery installed if not flash it.
2) open twrp go to advanced section and click terminal button
3) terminal will show us just type df and then some lines will show up as seen in image
IMG20210126105823-min.jpg

see carefully at right corner my phone (samsung) has /sdcard and /external_sd
so my internal storage is that sdcard one your phone may show internal storage as internal storage so look carefully

what i mean from all this things is to look at left most corner of image against sdcard block no is mmcblk0p23 which is important thing to see then rest is just command

after you find your block just use

mke2fs /dev/block/??????

replace ?????? with block name for your phones internal storage

and then abra ka dabra your internal storage is alive.
be happy bro.

    1) Reboot your device into TWRP Recovery.

    2) Go to Wipe menu.

    3) Go to Advance Wipe.

    4) Select Data and go to Repair or Change File System.

    5) Click Repair File System. (If not fix, go to step number 6)

    6) Go to Change File System.

    7) Select Ext2 and swipe to confirm.

    8) Now change back to Ext4 and swipe to confirm.

    9) Now go back and check if your partions can be mount or not from Mount menu.

    10) If not fix, repair your Internal partition. (This may wipe your Internal storage).

    OR Unlock your bootloader again.

    this is what i can say

    All partitions of an Android system - what by default is housed on internal storage memory - get mounted when device boots up. If Android OS successfully started up then you know it has been settled.

    Here a list of standard internal memory partitions on Android phones and tablets:

    • /boot
    • /system
    • /recovery
    • /data
    • /cache
    • /misc
    • /vendor
    • /efs
    In addition, there are the SD card partitions.

    • /sdcard
    • /sd-ext
    Note that only /sdcard is found in all Android devices and /sd-ext is present only in select devices

    More info here:

    My last 2 cents here:
    If you run
    Code:
    adb devices
    adb shell "df"
    you will get the sizes of all filesystems in human readable numbers.
