Are there any tested Infinix S5 custom rom's out there (preferably android 10 and above ) There are some GSI/treble roms out there claim to work on the device but treble roms are not as stable as custom roms .. Anything above or android 10 would be nice since the stock rom is on android 9 pie and is bloated crazy bad .

Hey . thanks for the reply ,

Which ROM would you personally recommend ? 
And actually I am not aware how to flash the img .. do I have to flash the img file as system or boot ?

If you could give the flashing instructions in fastboot , it would be good ..

can use pixel experience rom .If u are using twrp and u are running Android 9 and bellow ,just wipe the following
Darvich and cache,cache,data(make sure u did not flash twrp help magisk mudule ) ,system
And reboot to twrp and flash the extracted pixel custom rom inside system partition and reboot to recovery before final reboot
And if u want fastboot mode make sure u are using only latest platformtools and u know how to update our driver when u are run "fastboot reboot fastboot" the full command u must use if u are on Android 10 above
fastboot devices
fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot reboot fastboot
fastboot getvar is-userspace
fastboot erase system
fastboot delete-logical-partition product
fastboot flash system system.img

If u are on Android 9 below,use
Fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
Fastboot erase system
Fastboot flash system system.img
Fastboot-w (u can also wipe through recovery mode either stock or custom)

Okay , 
I understand the flashing part but when I download the Pixel experience ROM , its is a single img file .. How do I flash all partitions separatley like vbmeta , boot , recovery etc when there is only a single file ?

U Will only need the img file that u got after flashing
Other things are still in your phone ,u are only flashing system partition nothing else and any other partitions will still be performing their normal duties

Thanks , that was the biggest question I had about this ,
But just to confirm because I ain't sure , it's only the system partition right ?

Okay , so I am still a bit unsure about this so can you please tell me exactly the commands for my device ? I'll provide the information ..
It's an Infinix S5 running stock android 9 and I'll have to flash with fastboot because I do not have any custom recovery , So according to you , I have to only flash the system partition using the img file , and all other partitions will work like normal ? Here';s what I think the commands would be ;
fastboot devices
fastboot --disable verity --disable verfication flash system <the img file>
are the commands correct ? Can you please confirm ? Please let me know !

Since u are running a9 u don't need to delete logical partitions,the only commands u need are as follow

Adb devices
Adb reboot bootloader
Fastboot devices
Fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
Fastboot erase system
Fastboot flash system system.img

And do a factory reset on recovery (only on stock recovery)


Note that bootloader most be unlocked and install USB driver and have platforms tools

And the image file most be rename to system.img and both the empty vbmeta and system.img most be in platforms tools

Ok thanks !
That was pretty in depth , just one more question , is the empty vbmeta file required or will it work without flashing the empty vbmeta file ? SInce I already am using --disable verity switch , I think it might be unnecessary but you know better , let me know !
