needs to connect to PC along with combo keys to reboot to recovery. Clean install again if you have bootlooped device.

Edit : I have checked video, it's lockscreen bootloop.
Commonest causes are -
1.Enable Dual messanger
2.Rollback protection.

Remedy : Clean install ROM + Bootloader
Hey Man.
i have finally maged to make it work.
I have managed to fix bootloop by putting it in download and then in the recovery mode. For some strange reason, if I didn't download mode it before, it wouldn't let me open the recovery. I hope that helps people with the same issue.
Then I have done a clean installation of the ROM and the Windows Link app was working correctly.
I kept installing apps and got to the TweaksPro N20 part. When doing a debloatware the windows app started to fail again. (same issue) I restore the apps from the debloat and the application worked. It seems I have to be a bit more conservative with the Debloat. If I find exactly what app it was, I'll write it here

Thank you so much for your help @dr.ketan your ROM is killing it (y)
 
Why can´t download and install high contrast sky black theme? I need it to use hex installer.
I have hex installer pro installed and working perfectly on latest rom N986B device.

Dont restore backup of Hex Installer after installing rom. Install hex installer and plugins fresh again from play store

But to install hex theme you have to have installed the Samsung high contrast theme that I can't download.

I am on R4 an all works really nice.
One thing does not work which is Netflix.
It is hidden in Magisk and Magisk itself is hidden. Netflix tells me this device is not supported...

Any ideas?

Hi doc, I would just like to congratulate for your good work on keeping us updated with your roms. I just have one minor problem. I folllow all the steps, it installs ok and works flawlessly, but if I want to try and go into TWRP, it won't let me, and have to install again each time I want to go into twrp. Do you know how to fix this, so I can go into TWRP when I want to, without having to install it again?

- I am not sure if you are aware of it or not but mentioned here multiple times that since A11 you needs to connect to PC along with combo keys to reboot to TWRP
- QS Panel have dedicated reboot to recovery button

@dr.ketan
even with the new version, Google Pay doesn't work for me. Saftynet check passed, but Google Pay tells me that my note meets the security requirements. Pay fix from romtweaks pro doesn't change anything either.

It's a police thief game. If google have again patched loophole it may not work. There are some Google Pay dedicated thread, look into it. I haven't not tried recently. Yet I haven't seen any report other than you though.

Clean installed R05 and it works perfectly. Except Tweaks Pro QS Panel 7x5 and 8x6 don't work. I've tried several times and rebooted each time. What did I miss?
One possibility is you have restore TweaksPro with some tool/cloud
Uninstall and reinstall as apk
Activate TweaksPro and reboot device
Then try required mods

    TweaksPro must updated to version 4.1.0 or up (older version may cause bootloop)

    Important Instructions for setting up ROM (NEW)



    - In case clean installing ROM

    • 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.

    Thank you very much Doc for test build. I have the S08 Rom installed on My N986B , clean flashed . Everything is working perfectly well. I have no bugs to report 👍👍

    N985F users who just want to update Bootloader & Modem, but don't want to spend much time downloading & unpacking & flashing the full ROM (about 8Gb), I did this for you. AP file is trimmed the same was as Dr. Ketan did (except MD5)
    Download from MediaFire

    A comment from Dr. Ketan: "Don't forget that CSC file should be used only for OXM group of CSC users, If it is flashed on Non OXM CSC device then his/her CSC will be messed up."

    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.
