Android 8 Oreo GSI List - ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android Phone

The hype of Android Generic System Image (GSI) euphoria is all started here, the Android 8.1 GSI or more precisely phhusson’s Treble Experimentation of AOSP 8.1 GSI.


Licosha — Alright just like I promised, on this blog I will shared the list of Android Generic System Image or GSI that myself tried had successfully booted on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android phone.

But on this post I will first shared the Android 8.1 GSI, 9 and 10 will follow soon. “But why I want to use Android 8.1 if there are GSIs with newer Android version?” Well there are various reasons:

  • ASUS Zenfone Live L2 released with Android 8.0 and this phone is not quite high in hardware specs, so using Android 8 GSI might help improving performance if you like gaming using it, or better battery life.
  • More hackable. Newer Android OS version means harder to hack or it will not have many hacks as older Android version (example are Magisk or Xposed modules).
  • Miracast working! (mostly).

Here it is, the list of Android 8.1 GSI that myself tested had successfully booted and running normal on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2, along with it’s pros and cons (and bugs 😝) . I also try to wrote the ROM small details and features type, whether it is has minimal, medium, or complex customization features.

Keep in mind that the bugs I written below may or may not be specific to that linked GSI built only.

If you still don’t know how to install a GSI (and common bugs that usually occurred on them), then head over to my another post: How to Install Generic System Image (GSI) on ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android Phone.

Bootleggers is a Lineage OS based ROM with lots of customization features, but one of their signature is the "Shisufied" themes built in on the ROM, allowing us to easily change our ASUS Zenfone Live L2 to the Shisufied looks 😆.

Bugs:

  • Bootleggers 2.3: Bootloop, you might need to reinstall GApps (Nano GApps or higher) although the ROM is included Nano GApps.
  • Bootleggers 3.0:
    • Crashed on setup wizard. Solution: Dirty flash from Bootleggers 2.3 or reinstall GApps (use "Stock GApps").
    • Wired headset undetected. Solution: install overlay fix.
    • Default APN is empty, so you might need Wi-Fi for passing the setup wizard as the mobile data won't work with empty APN.

If you feel Lineage OS is too minimal on your ASUS Zenfone Live L2, then you might want to try XenonHD. XenonHD is a custom ROM for various Android devices. It is based on LineageOS 15.1 with additional features, performance and battery life improvements. The idea behind XenonHD is to give users a ROM that is "blazing fast, rock stable and buttery smooth".

  • Wired headset undetected. Solution: Install overlay fix.
