Hey All,

I am having difficulties opening Microsoft Excel files on the SD card of my N986B running S08.

I googled around and did find a solution which was to grant Excel access in the ALL FILES ACCESS sub menu of the SPECIAL ACCESS MENU. The only issue is that I see a creepy message on top of this menu stating "This APP will be able to read, modify, and delete all files on this phone or any connected storage devices. If you allow this, the app may access files that aren't related to the app without notifying you".

As I am into data security etc, the message above is concerning.

Does anyone know of any other work arounds or threads I can visit to find another solution?

Hey Dr. Ketan, first of all thank you for your hard work on the ROM.

I finally updated from the R05 to the S08 a few days ago (Clean Flash). The Rom runs flawlessly, stably and smoothly.

However, I have a problem with Viper4Android. After flashing the ROM I installed V4A via TweaksPro and it works so far, but only in legacy mode and as soon as I activate it with my usual settings the music becomes extremely quiet as soon as bass comes. It is strongly dampened.

Does anyone else have this problem and can possibly help me? Viper4android is one of the only reasons why I still have root and a custom Rom.

I think it only works in legacy mode if I remember right it was mentioned a while back. Mine is the same way I enable legacy mode when I want to use it.

    Honestly, I could wait for 2 builds before updating. Security are not important to me 🤣. Enjoy your weekend.

    So, Im coming from android 11 very stock with magisk and root done the "organic" way.

    I'm following every part of the tutorial and when I get to flash the BL, AP and CS from the tutorial on the last step (after flashing super.img and installer.zip) I get the same error, when flashing everything fails because phone is on binary 4 and the one i'm flashing is 3, flashing stops and phone gets soft-bricked. Flashing stock works without any problems to recover the phone.

    Should I just skip flashing the BL then?

    I've never touched IMEI and I don't think it matters where I am, carriers don't really care, I used to run a IMEI-less phone a few years ago without any issues.

    EDIT: Also, my phone is a 985F, My guess is I should NOT install the 986 kernel on installation setup, right?

    Thanks!
    Yes, N985 bootloader files are old, just skip flashing it

    After some workaround found a way to use TWRP on A12, I am in touch with Ian regarding this for final fix and public release.

    Edit : Made backup of SB1 and worked like a charm, yet restore not tested though.
