CUSTOM BUILD - Android 10 (Q) eOS GSI

I have twrp installed now. I’m wondering about gsi installation.

If you have installed twrp, you can copy the GSI.img on your device and flash it with twrp. Twrp has an option to flash .img files

ok I was wanting to make sure first. I know there are some differences in installation methods as I’ve always flashed with fastboot which includes --disable-verification in flash vbmeta command. Not having used twrp for gsi installation before left me wondering how that was done. There are no such options in any twrp I am aware of and the newer Samsungs I’ve found very picky about vbmeta verification. Do you have a gsi that you recommend and any guesstimate on test release of /e/ for Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e ?

hello world

I don’t own a Samsung device. So I don’t know for sure how it could work.
I would prefer asking the web. I think there will be a howto flash a gsi on samsung. On XDA ir Sansung forum I think you will find something.

do you have a link to a guide to make a custom build android 9 / 10 GSI version?
Do you have a repo to clone to get the patched repo to build?


Hi, in the HowTo’s you can find all for building pie-GSI

Q-GSI is very difficult and there must a lot manually changed to remove all goolag calls. That’s why I haven’t created a HowTo yet.


Truly an amazing day. Pixel 3 running e - thank you @harvey186

it was me a pleasure :smiley: :innocent: :innocent:

How is it possible to get rid of the horrible bootloader images and return the system font to default?

Than you have to wait several month til eOS will share a GSI

But you csn remove the from /system/media folder
and I think there are some apps with which you can change system fonts

And by the way, noone force you to use my GSI with hus ‘horrible’ bootanimation

Thanks ill give that a go.

No force needed, I’m using it, just stating the boot animation is horrible which is my personal taste

Are you talking about a Gogol trade mark logo at boot ? or the « che / rainbow / peace and love » animation ?
that i found more « kitch » than « horrible »
I feel a warm sweet young reminiscence taste …

about this. It’s from my lovely flower power area :slight_smile:

I don’t won’t to use my 161 bootanimation :wink:

Yeah its not to my taste, I don’t accept the symbolism, no bearing on the GSI image itself.

It is unofficial custom build

Indeed, with feedback from a user

:laughing: I’ll do test it soon !

That was not a feedback, it was a. …

I think we better stop discussing about this custom bootanimation,
it is off topic

The :wink: is there :

/system/media folder/

I’m not forcing you to change it
