I have an old Google pixel 1 and I was trying to install a GSI but I get this a message on TWRP saying Size of image is larger than target device, so I went to wipe > advanced wipe > selected the system partition > and clicked repair partition and it said that it only has 1.3 GB of space, and the GSI file is 2.3.. Is there a way to increase this partition size ? thanks.

    "if you don't know it - don't do it." seriously, messing with partition tables can permanently brick your device

    read the introduction first. then search here for keywords repartitioning, gdisk, sgdisk or parted. don't follow any steps, just try to understand. basically read a lot. after few hours go back to the install instructions where you downloaded the ROM and follow the repartitioning tutorial for your device. Be aware don't screw up fastboot - there is no flash tool available for google devices!

    You can do partitioning on Android exactly the same way you do on a Linux machine. The same tools and concepts are used. But it's far more complicated due to many more factors involved. As @alecxs suggested, avoid it if it's avoidable. Android devices are highly brickable. Also please note that on recent devices there is super partition. On such devices trying to modify system/vendor partitions is not recommended at all as it gets even more complex, rather impossible. Dec 24, 2020 at 14:04
