Google could give more devices an early taste of Android Q with earlier GSI releases

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Project Treble seems to be making a dent in the fight against Android's fragmentation problem, and one of the keys to its success relies on something called a GSI (Generic System Image) which is basically a super-stock, AOSP-based image of the Android framework, and a required part of testing Treble compliance.

How does Project Treble impact Android and the custom ROM community?

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

One of the pieces of Oreo, Treble was Google's attempt to improve the terrible update situation we see on many third-party phones, especially from Samsung, Asus, and Huawei.

Here are all the phones updated to support Project Treble [Continuously Updated]

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

We covered it in detail here, but in a nutshell, Treble separates all the low-level device drivers (known as the 'vendor implementation') from the rest of Android.

Google’s “Project Treble” will modularize Android to make updates faster

If you're not familiar with how Android updates work, here's a summary.
