  1. Hello Youssef,
    I am German, live in Morocco all the time and recently bought a Redmi Note 9S.

    I want to install the Lineage OS and the GApps because I have had and am used to this on my S4 for a long time.
    Now the question arises to me:

    What do I need the “vbmeta.img” for?

    I’ve already rooted my mobile with Magisk and TWRP is running too. Everything runs smoothly.
    Would be nice to read from you!
    Greetings from Essaouira,
