Android Pie 9.0 for Galaxy S9/S9 Plus! [Pixel Experience GSI ROM]

For those of you who want to try out the latest Android Pie 9.0 for your Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, or any Android device that has unlocked bootloader and Project Treble support, you can grab any of the Android 9.0 GSI(Generic System Image) ROMs and get it now instead of waiting for Samsung to update their TouchWiz, which most likely will take another 3-6 months.  And for those of you in the U.S. with U.S. Snapdragon models, it will be few more months than the international Exynos models as carriers have to re-add their carrier bloatware.  Now, these Android 9.0 GSI ROMs are NOT TouchWiz, they are not Samsung firmware but AOSP ROMs(What is AOSP?).

How to Install Android 9.0 Pie w/ Root on OnePlus One!

For those of you who have a OnePlus One, Android 9.0 Pie is now available through a custom ROM called PSOP(Potato Open Sauce Project).   Now, this ROM has pretty much everything working out of the box including voice calls, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, etc…etc… Developer says GPS is a bit wonky but seems to work fine for me after using the GPS Fix app on the Play Store.  Battery life is excellent(as you will also be able to benefit from Android 9.0 30% improved battery) as the new Android P will prioritize apps and save battery by shutting down apps wasting battery life.  Performance is also excellent with Antutu scores of 66,000.  For right now, this seems like the best way to experience Android Pie 9.0 on your OnePlus One.  I’ve also tested calls both on speakers and bluetooth with my car bluetooth and they seemed to work flawless.  While many other Android devices have trouble with bluetooth, OnePlus One does well as it was designed to work well with AOSP(What is AOSP?).
