So if you think you have FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), then don’t worry, we have got you covered. The latest Android 9.0 Pie GSI builds (Generic System Images) are now available for download. Google has already uploaded the AOSP source on the developer site. Thanks to developer erfanoabdi, we now have the first Android P 9.0 Pie Project Treble ROM.
