    Thread Easiest way to update to Android 11?

    I have an Exynos that has been bootloader unlocked. I flashed someone's version based on Android 10 last year and am looking to move up to 11. Can someone please point me to a walkthrough? I still have Odin, etc. installed on my computer. Thanks.

    Post Can't install TWRP without rooting; need... better drivers...?

    No worries. Thank you for your help. I use Odin to install the Devbase ROM, right? Or can I use TWRP? Edit: apparently it works just fine to install it with TWRP. Thank you so much. This time TWRP works just fine for me and the new ROM is great.

    Post Best place to ask TWRP questions for Note 9... here or elsewhere?

    Formatted data from recovery; same error. Going to try do flash official fw then reflash twrp again, but I'm not sure what difference that will make. 1) Do you think it has anything to do with it being an international version (SM-N960F)? 2) Or because I used Magisk to root it? 3) Should I...

    Thanks for the tip on Titanium; I've been using it for years... should have guessed it was outdated.

    Thanks. Any tips on best software to back up everything manually? Short of making a list...?

    Same errors when I try internal storage. (FWIW, when I click "Select Storage", it tells me that the Micro SD card has ~9700 MB free, whereas the Internal Storage shows 0 MB free.)

    I updated to the latest TWRP and get the same errors. Should I start a new thread with those keywords in the subject line? "Could not mount /data and unable to find crypto footer." "Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument)" "Unable to recreate /data/media folder." "Unable to mount storage"...

    (Edit: if it matters, I have an Exynos Note 9, rooted) Screenshots attached. I would upgrade to a better/newer recovery if it exists and if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks.
