I’m trying to flash an /e/ GSI onto a Xiaomi Redmi 8A (olivelite) device.
My first attempts lead to a broken device that boots straight into fastboot every time. Flashing system.img worked without an error message.
I did skip the
Remove dm verity step that is outlined in the official guide in the hope that it would work anyway, but, well, it didn’t.
My problem with this is, it says to do it either using TWRP, which does not seem to exist for that particular device model, or to do so by “extracting the kernel and reflashing it”.
However, the GSI offered on the /e/ website only contains one single
system.img file, not the
boot.img used in that particular command. Could this possibly refer to some
boot.img file from the original MIUI ROM? If so, what is a safe way to get my hands on that file?
