**Welcome to the Fox Den!**

This is a stockish, pre-rooted ROM based from N950U1 3BRA5 Firmware,

- READ THE ENTIRE GUIDE!
- Download and extract all required files to convenient location, keeping all files organized, on PC

Step 10 – Long press Wipe section and position it 1st before ZIP flash.
Step 11 – Leave Reboot section set to Normal unless you plan on flashing FR Odin files, then select Download and the check mark at top right.
