If you wnt to blind format, do this

Try blindly rebooting to download mode - Open odin and if device connected, try flashing CSC*.tar.md5 from stock firmware file (same OS as you have installed) with CSC tab and flash. This will wipe data if flash successfully
But force reboot doesn't showing screen then
may be f* up bootloader (You can try flashing stock firmware too to rule out this but instead of HOME_CSC select CSC* so device get wiped and auto reboot itself) or screen hardware
I tried blind reboot to download mode (power+vol down and vol up + vol down + usb cable when it vibrates) but it didn't work, nothing shows in Odin... Only vibrates on power + vol down. It's not a screen issue because I did put a SIM in it and called, but nothing. Any other advice please?

Nothing can be better than Note

I can't make myself like the rounded screen corners of the S series. To me the Note screen is the only proper screen shape. I didn't expect this to be such a big problem for me, but once I held the S21, I couldn't wait to get back to my Note again.

And the fold series - this isn't a phone that you can use only one of your hands to operate. I need a beast phone, but one that I can use with one hand only when I need to. Therefore those fold phones are never going to be my first choice.

I hope the Note series survive and looking very much forward to a Note 21 ultra.

    • Based on N986BXXU4FVGA Aug 2022 security patch OneUI 4.1
    • Magisk updated to V25.2. Now you must update Magisk from stub OR manually Install just after flashing ROM and boot first time.
    • After applying fix + Reboot device should pass safetynet. If not, Open ROM Tool - Mods & Misc Fix - and apply SafetyNet fix and reboot if needed
    • GPay (wallet) PRE-FIXED It will autometically get applied on Essential fix. Also you can manually apply/remove anytime from separate option available in ROM Tool - Misc Fix - Gpay Fix

    Important Instructions for setting up ROM (NEW)



    - In case clean installing ROM
    • On first boot, Update Magisk from stub OR Install as a apk and open magisk and complete the additional setings if asked for, else exit the magisk app. (Don't setup any option in magisk now)
    • Then open ROM Tool, Apply essential fix and Reboot
    • After reboot SfetyNet should pass. You can use this app from playstore or This from Github to check SafetyNet. There is separate SafetyNex Fix option available in ROM Tool - Mods & Misc fix - SafetyNet fix, You can use anytime if needed.
    • Now you can further setup ROM a per your liking. Also MagikHide is Configure Denylist now and available under Magisk Settings.
    • Since A12 Stable Magisk not working and new Magisk doesn't have buil-in Module repo, You can get standalone module manager from here For more details and queries about new magisk ref this
    - In case dirty install (You can try if you are on DrKetan ROM previous version but we DO NOT RECOMMENDED)
    • Clear ROM Tool data
    • Before installing ROM, uninstall Magisk manager from app drawer
    • After ROM installation, update Magisk from installed stub
    • Then Follow above instruction for clean installation
    • In case you have any issue after dirty install, don't post queries on thread, we don't support dirty install, simply go with clean install.
    PS : Plz don't install any other mods for SafetyNet, All queries related to Magisk/SafetyNet will be ignored if already explained above

    IMPORTANT NOTES :
    • We recommended to flash Stock firmware before flashing this ROM if you are on too old base or on other ROM , If not full, at least flash Home_CSC*.tar.md5 file from stock firmware with CSC tab of Odin. This is specifically for
      • N985 Device (Any group of CSC)
      • N986B device with non OXM group of CSC (To check your CSC group, Dial *#1234#. If CSC part doesn't starts with N986BOXM your are on Non OXM group of CSC
    • For N986B device with OXM group CSC (If your CSC part starts with N986BOXM) files are included (about 98 CSCs) in ROM setup file, You can see complete list of available CSC in aroma installer. You must select to flash CSC option if your csc is part of it. This will update CSC files to same base.
    • New base have updated bootloader so if you are running previous base, you must needs to update Bootloader & Modem else device won't boot. BL and Modem available in download area (separate for N986B and N985F each) with separate instructions packed inside.
    • Clean Install is recommended always.
    • Don't Install any module related to SafetyNet Fix/Busybox/Multidisabler etc, Everything is included in ROM itself.

    Thanx a lot for this great work.
    I flashed this rom because of top quality, but also beacause i had a very big problem :
    Mine is a second hand device and i cant get my lock screen working.
    Everytime i try to set lock screen with pattern, or pin or password , i get the error

    "Screen lock was already changed, try again with the new screen lock"

    I guess that installing a custom rom this problem it would disappear, but a vain hope.
    Someone can suggest me some steps to try to solve ?
    Thanx in advance.
    Regards
    Try flashing stock
    Then come back to Drs Rom

    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.
