Immuni - Italian Covid-19 tracking app

Am I supposed to flash a Generic Image on my device? That means no costumizzation for may phone, right? It’s not clear what I’m gonna loose , in order to get that app working…


Here you can find some information about flashing GSI.

You will loose nothing but you win something.

thank you very much!

few questions:

  • thay say “but please be sure you are using the stock boot/ramdisk before proceeding”: does it mean that I cannot use my current /e/ installed build to proceed?

  • I’m supposed to flash ‘system’ partition: so my data and installed non system app will be available afterward, right?

  • what is the best way to install: with or without TWRP?

  • I’m gonna receive regular system updates?



Yes, if you are using the existing vendor partition, you can get issues.

No. You have to FORMAT /data. This means, all your pics, downloads etc will be gone

I’m using the GSI on my daily driver.That means, I will build the GSI from time to time for my own and share it.

mhm. So I should:

  • backup my data
  • re-flash Stock Rom
  • install GSI
  • restore my data
  • re-flash from time to time.

That’s really a big deal! Thank you anyway.

I like to hear that! So with your Q-GSI /e/ROM I will test more, especially those that are not officially Treble Project ready. How can I show my appreciation which is also accepted by you?

no, the Q-data is different to pie data. You have to add all new. By the way, a backup is always a good choice, because eOS is still an beta and you can loose all you data if something went wrong with OTA updated (we have it some weeks ago)

After first change to q-GSI you can update system.img as often as you want/need without loosing data til my R GSI will be available. But that will need some month

If you are talking about me, it’S OK. If I can read that you and other users are happy with me work, that’s enough for me :))


How could I restore my data? I mean installed app, accounts settings ecc.

It’s noto clear to me wether is necessary to restore the stoke ROM or not befere trying to flash GSI, sorry…

going back to stock rom is only needed if your actual android version is NOT Android 10 (Q)

Sorry, as I have written before: the /data structure on Q-GSI is different to Android 9. That’s why you can’t restore your data. If you want use the Q-GSI (or any Q_ROM) you will loose all your data and you have to start over with all apps, settings, etc.

My actual /e/ build is based on android 9, so…

…even if the original stock ROM is android 9?

no “migration” tool out there?

Right. …

For what reason was @gersh0m posting edited by @Manjo without any hint?


From other forums I know labels like Edited by administrator | Reason: x...y...z

I think when you push the entry, you will see what he has changed. But I think it was only the category. I think it was fist only ‘Using e’ / Applications’ and Manoj has added ‘mircoG’

Where can I download the latest microg apk?

You can’t install the GmsCore manually in eOS. You must wait for the system update.
I was talking about this GSI [GSI] Q-GSI --- new version October 17th

@harvey186, already forgotten? Other us/e/er than me have shown elsewhere that a manual upgrade of GmsCore is possible!

No, I remember :slight_smile: but I’m also remember that a lot of people are running into forced closed when trying it. So it’s better to wait til eOS has updated it. I don’t want the people will lost there data

Oh yes, @harvey186, I know with increasing age this is forgotten everyday ;-]]

But you are right, not every us/e/r has succeeded in manual upgrade.

Here is one (of several) reminders > How to install unreleased version of MicroG GmsCore

That’s too bad 'cause you can’t update “system app” and many of US have no regular system update!
