Installation and Download aand Notes


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 won't work once you root device.
- ROM Tool permission : Files & media - To save and read files, Calendar - Tool needs some time monitoring to avoid using RT immediately after reboot. Special access for accessibility service - Since Android 12 it requires for QS panel custom Toggl e.g. Reboot to recovery



Installation :


Read ChangeLog post for Installation instructions (link on post #3)

PS : Who can handle consequences of dirty flashing, they never need to ask this question in forum. If you dirty install then handle it yourself .

ChangeLog Q01 For N986B

- Based on N986BXXU1ATH3 1Aug security patch
ROM features are same as mention on Post #1

Some Important things to note -
  • This ROM is tested only on N986B If any N985 users want to test, can try on your own risk. Report outcome and I may try to fix.
  • TWRP is Included in ROM itself. Credit & Thanks to Geiti for TWRP
  • This is first version and needs to flash using Odin, subsequent version may have different scenario. Read Installation guide below for details
  • This is first release, There may be more fix/features there in subsequest releases.


Recommended Installation Steps


Requirement :
- Rooted N986B based on Aug security patch
- It is must to have root using Full AP Magisk + Patched kernel shown on this thread. If you have rooted with only patched kernel then you must first root with full AP magisk patch file + Patched kernel as shown on linked thread.
- Odin 3.14.4 or above

Installation :

- Backup your data, this procedure will erase all data including Int storage.
- Download N986B_DrKetan_ROM_Q0*.zip and extract to PC
- Boot device to download mode (Switch Off device - Keep holding Vol Up + Down & connect to PC with USB)
- Open Odin - Disable Auto Reboot in Option
- Click AP tab and navigate to file you have downloaded & extracted N986B_DrKetan_ROM_Q0*.tar.md5
- Click Start and when it completes, disconnect mobile and keep holding Vol down+Side Key for 7 sec, as soon as device screen goes off, use combo key to reboot to recovery
- Now you will have TWRP - Select Wipe - click FORMAT DATA - You need to type "yes" to continue
- When finish, Reboot to system

ROM specific Instructions.

  • Once device boot to android, straightway do following things before setting up device further
  • Check Magisk Manager is installed. If there, Open it and complete environment setup (Device must be connected to internet) - Reboot. In case Magisk Manager not installed, get latest stable from magisk gut hub and install manually and follow as said.
  • Open Magisk, settings - enable magisk hide. Also recommended to turn of supersu notification while setting up.
  • Open ROM Tool - It will ask to Apply Essential Fix, Complete it and Reboot.
Now you can set up your device as per your desire. Enjoy!


Tips, Add On & Fix

- 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.

- EdXposed You can directly install from Magisk download repositories

- Unable to login to samsung ac : I have observed recently in one condition, restoring a backup that includes samsung acc. I have encountered this once and fixed by installing Samsung Members and logged in with that. By using this app, it showing "your session is expired login again" after this it was worked. Another possibility is, few users have reported some version of custom kernel was causing issue with samsung acc.

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


Download and other instructions available in post #2



This is a customized ROM and for end users only, ROM or any part of ROM/mods not allowed to redistribute,modify or to use as base to prepare new ROM/ part of other 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.

    Samsung have F* up beta and TWRP no more working. Anyay succeed to root after lots of trial.
    I doubt development will be much impressive before get working TWRP. Custom ROM can be done but too much headache and needs to flash with Odin and no TWRP.
