Licosha — Searching high and low for a perfect Android GSI, now I stumbled upon a quite unique GSI called Project Sakura.
So what is so different from Project Sakura? Other than it’s catching name maybe, it is one of few ROM project left that still based on LineageOS.
Quoting from the info from the GSI source, this Project Sakura Q GSI is actually ported from ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 ROM.

Quick review of Project Sakura Android GSI on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2
Unlike most of ROM project that is based on AOSP, Project Sakura made a choice to built the ROM project around LineageOS instead.
But unlike LineageOS that is only ships minimal features of customizations, Project Sakura Q instead extended it to become full featured ROM like CrDroid or Bliss.
And what’s awesome of this Project Sakura Android Q GSI built is, it has working FM radio on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android phone (I was using the ARM64AB). Maybe it is because the GSI is ported from ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 ROM which perhaps shares some similarity in hardware or software.
Bugs I found on this Project Sakura Android GSI on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2
I was installed the ARM64AB of this Sakura Project GSI on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android phone and found some bugs:
- Dead flashlight
- Dead camera
However the above bugs seems more like to my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 vendor bugs as I also experienced it when using another GSI with the Android 10 vendor of the phone.
