Dear Dr do you have the idea of pushing a port of beta 4 one ui on your rom ? I m pretty sure you did that with note 10 and one ui 3.
No idea if possible to port or not, even if possible, it's too much time consuming. I don't have time for that. It will be when beta out for this device

E-SIM have no modification in ROM and as it is by samsung.
Still I recommend to download latest version (Recommended same base you are using) stock ROM - Extract and get HOME_CSC*.tar.md5 and flash it using Odin for CSC tab. SOmetimes network features get updated with CSC files and ROM doesn't include it.
I suggest this to do periodically with newer version of ROM or at least if you have some weird bugs.

What about exactly is Mr.Ketan rom? Is this just OneUI releases with some tweaks or is this rom also bringing newer android versions when official support ends?

I've also wondered the same thing. I know he's highly respected but I've never found any specific info as to what his rom does.

What about exactly is Mr.Ketan rom? Is this just OneUI releases with some tweaks or is this rom also bringing newer android versions when official support ends?
I do post ROM features (What is different from stock ROM) in Changelog post, and OP also have mentioned same thing, really don't know if it is not visualised to some users. may be a forum bug?

It's working fine on R11.
You are over-thinking the issue. I use the Viper Module via Magisk. I believe Dr.K's Viper fix does pretty much the same thing but, I've never tried used his solution.

I install the oldest version. Previously, I'd make it a System App, but something changed with R11. If you make it a System App, you can't access you profiles and Convolver library.

Hey guys, Unsure if anyone has come across this issue but thought id ask - I have a N986B - Ive unlocked bootloader etc, flashed magisk_patched-23000_p9NRQ.tar and TWRP_file.tar

It PASSES everytime - Ive unclicked Auto Reboot - However whenever I try to get into TWRP (hold up plus power) I can never get into TWRP

Upon boot I always get a message Your bootloader is unlocked and the software integrity can not be guaranteed

Sup yo? You've got a tiny jackpot.

First, be sure you hold the buttons until you see the TWRP logo, if it boots to nag mode, then you have some clean-up to perform. (Not sure why you are flashing the Magisk file? ROM install takes care of that matter.) Secondly, you should be installing TWRP via Odin.

Be sure your device can communicate with PC. Be sure you have a current backup of your apps (If you use Google your device will auto restore) and, ESPECIALLY your EFS!!! Insure you already have Dr.K's ROM on MicroSD. Also a good idea to have Dr.K's "No Nag" AP.tar on PC.

Reboot into Download. Then flash the TWRP tar file (with auto reboot unticked). Upon confirm, reboot manually from Download and go into Recovery. Once TWRP loads, you are jake.

Factory reset. Advanced Wipe (everything but your MicroSD). Then Format (important), type yes and let it go. Back out to main menu and install ROM from MicroSD.

Once you let the ROM install and settle a bit (20 minutes or so), reboot to Recovery>Reboot>Download, flash Dr.K's 'No Nag" AP via Odin.

And you're away mate!

Hi

I dont think its how im pressing the buttons ive put TWRP on many devices before

Ive been following this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-20-ultra/how-to/guide-how-to-root-n20-ultra-t4147023

Code:
4.Open Magisk Manager - Magisk (first one) - Install - select to "Select and Patch file" - Navigate file you have copied to device (AP_[device_model_sw_ver].tar.md5)

5.Magisk Manager will patch the whole firmware file and store the output to [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched.tar

But still not sure why I cannot get TWRP on successfully from that above guide?

Phone must be connected to your PC via cable (while doing that button combo ) , to get into TWRP
Thank you

I flashed this with a whole new TWRP and its worked!

Thanks guys!

Last thing

Now when I reboot it says (for obvious reasons) - Am I OK ignoring this ??

"The phone is not running Samsung's official software. You may have problems with features or security, and you wont be able to install software updates."

"The phones bootloader is unlocked and its software integrity cant be verified. Any data on this phone may be vulnerable to attackers. Dont store any important or sensitive information this phone"

No offense intended. I wasn't doubting your competency, I simply remember when the nag come up it can delay the boot to recovery.

Good luck.

You can ignore it
But you can also get rid of it
Use ROM Tool app ( comes with the Rom )
Look for : Mods & Misc Fix , you will see there the option: * Boot splash red text removal
Once the fix has been applied, you will have to reboot your device, and that's it !

    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.
