Installation and Download


Important :


- This will void warranty.
- As of now you will lose Samsung Pay and Secure folder forever if you root once, even unrooting won't help. (hope in future we can get it working on tripped knox device)
- OTA likely won't work once you root device.


Installation :

If you are on stock ROM/Recovery, follow below said steps

1.Enable Developer Option (settings - about phone - Software information - Tap 7 times on build number to activate developer option in settings menu)
2.Enable OEM Unlock from developer option (If you don't have this option then read this you can't flash ROM before this option available.)
3.Download and copy ROM File to Ext SD card, Use ES file/Root explorer or any similar to check MD5, it should be match with provided in download section.
4.Download TWRP
5.Switch Off device
6.Press Vol down + Bixby and then connect device to PC to reboot to download mode, press volume up when asked to continue to download mode
7.Download Odin and open it, Disable 'Auto reboot' from option menu of Odin
8.Select TWRP (tar image) with AP tab of Odin and Start
9.Once Successfully flashed, you will see 'Passed' in Odin tab
10.Disconnect device and hold Vol down + power till screen goes off, Now immediately press Vol Up + Bixby + Power to reboot to TWRP
11.Select to allow modification
12.From TWRP, Select WIPE menu - Then FORMAT DATA - You need to type 'yes' to perform wipe. WARNING : This will erase all data including Int SD storage from device
13.Once format device completes, go back and select REBOOT' Menu and then - 'RECOVERY', This will reboot to TWRP again
14.Now select Install and navigate path to Ext SD card - ROM zip file, you have copied earlier
15.Read installation instruction of ChangeLog post for vendor.img It may be available inside ROM zip or may need to flash separately, depending on version of ROM
15.Let device boot, and read ROM specific Instructions below.


If you are on CWM recovery and custom ROM already, Follow below said steps.


1.Download ROM zip and place on Int Storage/Ext SD and check MD5
2.Reboot to recovery and select factory reset and flash ROM zip you have copied in step 1.
3.Let device boot,Read ROM specific instructions below.

Some ROM specific instructions

1. On boot, you will see a notification about don't use any app that requires root, wait till that notification to disappear. This issue explained in MustRead.txt file in download area. Also after first boot, wait for ROM Tool to open, it will provide option for some important fix.

2. ROM doesn't have any CSC included as now csc have separate partition (ODM). ROM will not erase/flash/modify files inside odm partition it and you will have your existing CSC even after flashing a ROM

3.Vendor partition may be included in ROM or available separately (Read changelog of version you are installing) .It is recommended to flash it specifically you are on different base.

4.Since Pie version, OEM is pre-fixed with kernel patch and after flashing ROM, you may find OEM option in developer settings but it will be disable, it is actually because of hack/fix applied. In real case if it is disabled then you may not able to boot rom with TWRP. Simply ignore it.

Read ChangeLog of ROM you are going to flash for any specific instructions. Link to changelog is available in next post below.

Can I dirty flash (without factory reset) ROM? No, We don't recommend it. If you are able to handle consequences with dirty flash then proceed, but don't post bugs in forum without clean installing ROM.
PS : Who can handle consequences of dirty flashing, they never need to ask this question in forum.


For Encryption - Read This


Download : http://www.drketanrom.com/note9.html



Instructions provided above are for latest version of ROM only, on previous versions of ROM it may or may not be same, we recommend to flash latest ROM only.

It's also On line. Though couple of features will added to next release. I believe only main missing is CSC features, that I have to re-write completely as N9 using new partition for CSC.

First of all many thanks for this rom. Seriously.

I have flashed and used this rom for the past hour and everything seems to be working well. No crashes so far and no issues with any of the included options either. Smooth and responsive too.

There are many features in this rom. I love the additional lock screen, always on display and edge lighting customisation.

This is truly fantastic!

I installed it without selecting the vendor installation option in aroma installer. Maybe try that? I installed kernel and magisk using the aroma installer though.

Your vendor doesn't need to be reinstalled. Your stock ROM already had it and twrp doesn't wipe it.
