I'm trying to ger organized so I can root and install Dr. Ketan's custom ROM, but I cannot even be sure my phone is working right. I switched over to Tmobile and although I'm getting better 4G than I did with AT&T, I haven't been connected to 5G for even one moment. Is anyone getting 5G on the n986b from any carrier? TMobile swears that my phone must not be working correctly because my area is saturated with 5G cell towers. Any opinions would be helpful. TIA...

Doesn't seem to be much information available, but it sure doesn't seem like the 5G works on this model Note 20. That's really the only reason I upgraded! I had 4G no problem on my Note 9. If you should establish a 5G connection out the in Germany, please let me know. I'm wondering if the icon has even been loaded on the phone itself... I have also never seen the LTE ICON on this model phone .

Hi Doc.
Purchased the tweaks Pro, since then when I'm on a phone call speaking to anyone, they get a very annoying squeaking sound and it gets that's disturbing they end up hanging up on me. I wonder is there a solution for that. Thank you

If you have enabled any sound mode then try removing it.
 
Hello. someone who can help. I can not get my G Pay to work but my banking app works fine without Root but not Google Pay and my Play Store also says it is not certified and I can not understand when there is no root left on the phone that runs this DrKetan 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.
