Really S23U battery is amazing. Today there was quite high usage and nearly 5 Hrs SOT and still half battery juice spared.

Hello, I'm facing an issue where the Galaxy S23 Ultra is not able to start up properly. I'm also not able to get into Download Mode nor into the Recovery Mode again.

My Galaxy S23 Ultra is not really in a boot loop. It's more that the screen is black and it's booting up occasionally/randomly when playing around. Having the cable connected to the PC and pressing [Vol Down] + [Power] to get into Download Mode or [Vol Up] + [Power] to get into the Recovery Mode is not possible anymore as the smartphone is not reacting and then the screen gets black again.

I never faced such an issue and was always able to solve issues but this time I'm quite perplexed. I would very much appreciate any tips or ideas what could be done in such a case.

It actually happened when I installed System-RW T05 and accidently did a factory reset.
At this point my colleague (who owns the smartphone) wanted to get his apps data back. Therefore he did a restore with TWRP but wasn't able to login with the screen lock password even he used the correct password. Then he took an old Backup and restored also the boot partition. At this point the smartphone wasn't able to boot up or to get into download or recovery mode again.

    I prepared for dirty flash and flashed the test ub6, it is stuck on samsung logo. I was using the tweakspro to download from premium features and this time i just went to newest test version, is there a difference?
    Wait what?
    One you got is encrypted version (confirm with file name suffix)
    If you were on decrypted and flash encrypted, no way device boot without full format data.

    how can I make it not show the warning when you turn on the phone after unlocking UB5 android 14 start animation
    It's not possible (for now)

    Hi doc, this isn't the case for other parts of the world right?
    Some countries probably already have this option but yes, not for all.

    Dear Users

    It's been 3 days I am on Beta 2 (UB4) and really couldn't found any bug to use as daily driver. Mostly there will be little improvement by samsung before final stable release. Also most of ROM features same like A13 already ported in latest UB4. I am engaged in beta project since day one and probably this will be last beta release for Dr.Ketan ROM unless if there is some major stuff in Beta3, Mostly I will update ROM straightaway to stable release as it is too time consuming (I prefer to make base firmware myself only) to capture beta and prepare odin flashing base from scratch.
    Happy flashing OneUI 6.0 !
    Have a great week end!

    Using UB4 (Beta 2 base) since 24 hrs and doesn't look like beta at all, much stable. So far no any bugs encountered.
    Similar review from couple of tester as well.

    Installation, Important Infos & Download


    Installation
    : State of the art Installation procedure.

    • Only needed is supported device + Unlocked bootloader.
    • No needs to have device rooted/Installed TWRP/update device to specific base
    Detailed installation guide separately available in download area along with ROM files.

    WARNING

    Before you root your device you must be aware that

    • 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.
    • There are many features stop working when you unlock bootloader other than S pay/Pass like Samsung Health, Secure Folder, Galaxy Watch pairing issue, Issue connecting old gear watch (S3 or earlier), Google Pay etc but ROM is patched for all these mentioned features. Still you may trouble using some bank apps and these may fixed by adding these apps to Magisk Hide
    • There may be some knox features there which you may not able to use but I can't list those as I never used. Just Google It
    • Patched featurs are working today when writing this, No idea if it may stop working next moment/tomorrow or later
    • Also to note, once you root, you can't go back to "pre-rooted" state completely. It is one way!
    • OTA won't work on rooted device.
    • ROOT with caution.
    • On unlocking bootloader you will have warning screen while device boot and as of now no workaround to hide. Though it can be removed with re flashing stock rom + re locking bootloader
    • You can unroot & Relock bootloader after flashing stock firmware, but still your warranty flag remain 0x1 and most of countries it still voids warranty. Also after unrooting & relocking bootloader, some knox features never work again.
    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
