Recommended Installation Steps

We Don't recommends/supports dirty flash, but one thing to note, you always should remove lockscreen & Biometric data before flashing ROM in case you gonna flash dirty.

ROM tested with Ian TWRP ( Download area have it) Credit & Thanks @ ianmacd Here is link for OP and source code.

MultiDisabler is require only those, who want to use stock ROM + TWRP. If you want to flash DrKetan ROM, DONT FLASH MULTIDISABLER

Once you manage to fix it, follow below given tips and go through Add On & Bug bix section below

Important Notes once you finish installing ROM

DON'T INSTALL ANY DISABLER/BT FIX/MAGISK anything after flashing ROM, as ROM already pre patched for all these stuff. Additionally flashing may cause issue. Also you shouldn't WIPE device after flashing ROM, but It should be before flashing ROM.

- It may take 6-7 minutes to finish installation. once installation finish, select reboot to system

- After this first of all open magisk and check if installed correctly, If it ask for complete additional setup, let it do and reboot.(If ROM being installed as said, then it won't ask)

I recommend to disable magisk notification (Magisk - setting - superuser notification - none (This will make mods to work much faster)

After looking magisk is installed properly, open ROM Tool and apply essential Fix - Reboot device after applying essential fix

If you are using Gear watch or other accessory, setup it and finish rest of personal installation.

Done !

Special Note for Gear wearable & Gear SPay

Spay (Gear) working out of box (As per my test), provided you have installed required apps.
To connect it flawlessly,
1.Clean Install ROM + Open ROM Tool and Apply Essential Fix - Reboot
2.Make sure Magisk manager safetyNet check pass
3.Connect gear with Bluetooth (Gear should factory reset) and this will auto install all required apps.
Once Gear connects, simply open Samsung Pay from Galaxy Wearable app - Hide it in Magisk Hide and you should able to add card.

Important : If you want to use EdXposed with Gear Spay then first add your card before installing EdXposed

I recommend clean Installation only. If you are able to handle consequences with dirty flash then proceed, but don't post bugs in forum without clean installing ROM.

Tips,AddOn & Fix

- SafetyNet Fix - Read Here

- Rebooting device after appearing lockscreen

- 3 minit users can use 3minit battery paid version for free. Check this (Thanks to gharrington )

- 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

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

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.

Not ROM related but mayby someone knows ..., I just installed a new video doorbell (Euft by Anker) and everything seems to work fine except when my phone is locked. I only get a notification when someone ring the doorbell, but no sound. All other apps don't have this problem (also my old video doorbell app doesn't have this problem).
I checked all settings in the app, also general settings (sound, battery optimization, ...)

Any ideas:unsure:

The good Doctor always recommends a clean install. Going from R03 to R04 REQUIRES a clean install. I tried a dirty flash and it went VERY badly. So beware!


EDIT: Dirty flash worked ok after another try. Something in the process corrupted my internal storage so I had to wipe internal storage to get it working.

After Dirty Install, whenever I attempted to bring up ROM Tool 10, I would get the message "Setting up ROM tool, keep patience" no matter how long I waited.

But now after I did a clean install, ROM Tool is doing the same thing. I can never get into it to apply essential fix no matter how long I wait.

I downloaded the ZIP file again. Another clean install. ROM Tool seems to do the same thing.

EDIT: Found the issue. Internal Storage got corrupted somehow and needed a format.

V4A 2.7.2. 1 not working in R3.. Any suggestions? Have also tried audio modification library on/off, legacy mode on/off but no success

It is working well for me. It is necessary to install V4A, Selinux Mode Changer (permissive), Audio Modification Library VR. 4.0, BOOT and than disable Audio Modification Library VR. 4.0. It is ready. Now the driver will work.

    Hello, it was already mentioned that this guy is being released, unfortunately the phone is more than 4 years old
    Hi @gabesztdi01,

    The fact that the model of the phone is 4 year old, that is not an obstacle to develop or modify a rom on it. There are lots of custom roms out there. An example like the Galaxy Note 8 is already enough here, there are some people still work on ported roms.

    Above all, the technology of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus is quite new. The fact that Samsung has cut its support for the Galaxy Note 10 Plus in order to sell models such as the Galaxy s22 Ultra, note 20 ultra and s23 ultra does not make this device a truly old device.

    Well, I, like many other users, am looking for a rom with the OneUI 5 interface running above Android 13 operating system for Galaxy Note 10+.

    Wouldn't you like one for you?

    But you should know that dr ketan have to answer that question hundred of times, for hundred of people like you. You should read previous page to see his answer before asking he again and again. He is not planning to make a 13 ROM for Note 10+, and his support for this device is almost end. Dev have thier own life, they make custom ROM for free (of course you can pay more to have more features), if they dont want to continue making new ROM, it's not their fault. If you want 13 ROM, build it yourself, or buy S20.
    Anyone knows how to update magisk to the latest build? Can share howto tuto? Thanks.
    • Magisk is built in custom kernel, SO DON'T update/flash magisk, else it will cause bootloop, In case this happens by mistake, re-run ROM zip, skip everything but Flash kernel and finish installation.
    Like Author said Magisk is built in kernel and can't be updated... you can only wait for the author to update the whole ROM I guess just so we can update Magisk ☠

    well that's what I understood, I could be wrong tho who knows
    regardless the ROM is quite good except for things like this that make me question my life choices xD
    @dr.ketan hello and thanks for the great work. I was wondering, when can we expect a rom for andorid 13? And is there a flashable magisk (latest) for your roms? I suspect that you may be busy with daily life and all so again tahnk you for your work.
    Is this rom compatible to Samsung Note 10 N970F (Exynos) ?
    Did you try reading title and changelog :unsure:

    Installation and Download

    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 likely won't work once you root device.

    Installation :

    Read ChangeLog post for Installation instructions

    PS : Who can handle consequences of dirty flashing, they never need to ask this question in forum. ;)
