I have no reason to believe it's a rom issue. It's all about magisk, your existing setup.
I have nothing to offer, you can switch rom if you find it working on other rom.
If you find some free time, pls do check it out. as weird as it may seem, that app will only detect root on Ketan Rom, I don't know if you remember me but we tried working on the Note 8 OEM Unlock fiasco before haha, anyways will try and check back once the rom gets updated again. thanks

Nothing really.
Most of the time craps could be your installed app like titanium, root explorer etc. or some folder like Titanium/TWRP etc
I haven't heard anything rom level fix for root detection.

@dr.ketan hi doctor....

good day to you....

so with the change of bootloader number, what's the way to flash android 11 stock and your rom now to keep the option of rolling back if i want to?

if it's too complicated, i love this rom so much, i am prepared to stay on bootloader 7

thank you
If you are already on bootloader 6, simply flash rom and don't flash bootloader
Though I recommend latest bootloader, as there is nothing I found required to roll back

who installs in what way? i have a usb converter and flash drive but i noticed that constantly if i plug it back into the computer it asks for a repair, the file system gets damaged after i unplug it from the phone? therefore, it may even be a faulty installation, I suffer from this

Don't use the usb converter , that is the problem !
Plug the phone directly to the computer with the OEM cable .

    Recommended Installation Steps :

    Download area have txt file for Installation guide according your existing setup, follow it to the letter.

    Some Tips :

    - We Don't recommends/supports dirty flash, but one thing to note, you always should remove lockscreen & Biometric data before flashing ROM in case you gonna flash dirty.

    - MultiDisabler is require only those, who want to use stock ROM + TWRP. If you want to flash DrKetan ROM, DONT FLASH MULTIDISABLER or Any othet FIX

    - DON'T INSTALL ANY DISABLER/BT FIX/MAGISK anything after flashing ROM, as ROM already pre patched for all these stuff. Additionally flashing may cause issue.

    - You shouldn't WIPE device after flashing ROM, but It should be before flashing ROM.

    - It may take 6-7 minutes to finish installation. once installation finish, select reboot to system

    - After this first of all open magisk and check if installed correctly, If it ask for complete additional setup, let it do and reboot.

    - I recommend to disable magisk notification (Magisk - setting - superuser notification - none (This will make mods to work much faster)

    After looking magisk is installed properly, open ROM Tool and apply essential Fix - Reboot device after applying essential fix

    - If you are using Gear watch or other accessory, setup it and finish rest of personal installation.

    Done !

    Special Note for Gear wearable & Gear SPay

    Spay (Gear) working out of box (As per my test), provided you have installed required apps.
    To connect it flawlessly,
    1.Clean Install ROM + Open ROM Tool and Apply Essential Fix - Reboot
    2.Make sure Magisk manager safetyNet check pass
    3.Connect gear with Bluetooth (Gear should factory reset) and this will auto install all required apps.
    Once Gear connects, simply open Samsung Pay from Galaxy Wearable app - Hide it in Magisk Hide and you should able to add card.

    Important : If you want to use EdXposed with Gear Spay then first add your card before installing EdXposed

    I recommend clean Installation only. If you are able to handle consequences with dirty flash then proceed, but don't post bugs in forum without clean installing ROM.

    Tips,AddOn & Fix

    - 3 minit users can use 3minit battery paid version for free. Check this (Thanks to gharrington )

    - Stuck while flashing something (Bootloop), How can I reboot to download
    There is a golden rule that always works when you stuck anywhere (bootloop). Follow this -
    1.Plugin device to PC
    2.Keep holding power + vol down
    3.As soon as screen goes blank, keep holding vol up + vol down (here you needs to be quick)
    And you are in download mode.

    - Read ROM Tool - Update & Fix if any new available.

    R09 (For N975/N976) is Online now.
    Must read changelog above.

    Updated kernel (UF3) base

    I tried to install only the BL from Q but officially it is impossible to downgrade from R latest security patch to Q. In download mode is written check fail bootloader device:7 binary.1. pit_flash_binary unsupported version. I thought exists a way to trick the system but apparently I can't find. My big problem is not to go to Q but to enable Signature Spoofing on R which I can't. but I could do it on Q. I want to degoogle my phone.
    Did you see this
    Try this for degoogle

    sorry, i didn't know much about...signature Spoofing..
    Works like charm, as always!!
    Thx dr. for your great work.

    Best regards.

    Installation and Download

    Important :

    - This will void warranty.
    - As of now you will lose Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass 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 :

    Read ChangeLog post for Installation instructions

    PS : Who can handle consequences of dirty flashing, they never need to ask this question in forum. ;)
