    Post [ROM][UNOFFICIAL][10.0][G920/5-F-I-S-K-L-T-W8]Pixel Experience Plus[AOSP][24/09/2020]

    Overheated phone/depleted battery seems to be a constant in custom ROMs for this device, or at least in all AOSP based ROMs I've flashed to mine so far. No matter how many "battery life depends on your usage; buy a new battery; disable this or that feature" defensive posts one can read, the fact...

    Post [ROM][ESE3][MAY PATCH] Galaxy S6 Marduk Stock ROM v4.1 [04/07/2019][G920/5/I/F]

    Does this ROM include the G925FXXU6ESG2 modem/CP, or must I flash the modem somehow else?

    Post [ROM][STABLE][8.0.0]Ultimate Oreo Note8 Port v1.0 [G920/5-F/I/S/K/L/T/W8]

    HUGE battery drain; way above stock. I only use this phone as a home wifi hotspot. No apps running on it, besides most bloatware uninstalled. Well: with stock ROM, I get about 8-10 h tethering. With this port, I get less than 2 h. So, back to stock.

    I can't tether with this ROM, neither via wifi, bluetooth or usb. I can turn tethering on, and the other device (usually my laptop) gets connected to the phone, but I don't get internet access (system tray shows "limited connectivity"). Someone else? Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

    Post SOLVED: How to flash baseband/modem (modem.img) with Odin?

    May I please ask you, how did you get a firmware with a modem binary inside it? So far I've downloaded two different firmwares for this device, latest baseband versions, and none of them ships a modem.bin or anything similar. I'm totally puzzled.

    Q1: In the provided kernel download link there's only "zeroltexx" kernel image, and also that's what you mention in the above quote; however the ROM is called "zerofltexx". Does it matter? Is it a typo? Or are they different devices, zeroflte and zerolte (without the "f")? Q2: Is it OK to flash...

    For the purpose of flashing this ROM (or, in general, any other Pie-based), shall it make any difference if I replace my stock Nougat modem binary with stock Oreo's? I mean: is it really important? Shall I notice improved performance, better battery life, or anything? Thanks in advance.

    There's a huge drain by "Mobile network standby" in Oreo/Pie LOS ROMs all over, which apparently affects only some owners of the same device models. I say "apparently" because I'm starting to wonder whether this bug really affects only some of us (which is sort of bewildering), or rather it...

    Hello. I'm conducting a little research on an issue that, I believe, involves mainly (or exclusively) dual sim variants: aren't you getting a huge battery drain from a process called "Mobile Network Standby", or otherwise "Bluetooth"? Thank you. ---------- Post added at 12:54 AM ----------...

    I'm struggling with this issue for months, since the first port of an Oreo custom ROM (LOS and RR) for the Galaxy A3 Duos (my device) started being developed.

    +1 I've flashed this ROM several times. Whenever I don't get my battery drained by "Mobile Network Standby", I get it drained by Bluetooth in about the same percentage per hour. Those drains are sort of "interchangeable", I've observed. Some wrong computing, I guess, of the battery use. But in...
