GSI Linux / The Future of Mobile Linux

From the 17th of October, 2020

The Generic System Image platform has started to mature. We’re already seeing builds that are more than just Android but also Linux images.

This, I believe is the true future of mobile devices! We can build and generic image that can be flashed on any mobile device with an unlocked bootloader.

I love the work that groups like Pine64 have done with their Linux phones but I think the future is breathing new life into established devices. I’m going to investigate further as I have a OnePlus3t that is no longer my daily driver to test some of these newer GSI builds on.
