I haven't been on stock since I bought it but I get at least 4-6 hours SOT as I don't need to plug in my phone until I go to bed at night. Also I use BFG kernel only found on Telegram but with kernel provided I get around the same SOT anyway.
thanks, but, where i can find the telegram group of BFG Kernel?
It's not much good
I do get 8-9 hrs SOT
And in case keep gear S3 connected, it goes down to 7.5 to 8 hrs SOT

- I have removed something bloatwares
- I put all apps to deep sleep for which I don't require notifications/to run in background
- Put all apps in sleep, which I don't needs notification in priority.

Still battery usage is very subjective and vary widely depending on own usage pattern.
Did you have as list of debloat? or did you use the general list? did you have this time in stock or with your rom?

Thanks for your help

Type in exactly that "n986b/ds black 512gb" in ebay and find a seller that sells them regularly and has a great rating. Thats how I got my international note 9 and my current note 20 n986b/ds.

Hey Doc, I've flashed R08 on top of R07 dirty flash, had battery drain, installed BBS found out the phone never go in deep sleep processor stay on 442mhz, most the time wakelock from gms, 90% battery usage is awake screen off. Wiped data gms uninstalled update etc same. Wipe phone and clean install R08 still the same issue. Have to mention something ( after flashing R08 ) when I want to reboot system TWRP keep saying " no OS installed " but still able to reboot and boot the phone, 🤷🏻‍♂️ any idea please ?

Yes, do a factory reset then install rom and follow Aroma install steps that'll walk you through each section.

Edit: Installation Guide is in the download area for your model.
Thanks for your reply.. Just saw the installation guide it mentions that after flashing twrp I should flash Bootloader and Modem via Odin. Do I flash it by also using the AP tab in Odin?

Bootloader files itself have installation instructions inside
If you already have latest bl and modem installed, skip this step

But don't know pre-fixed one how long works (depending on how google patches), In that case there is another option in ROM Rool to fix SafetyNet (Don't install every F* craps to fix SafetyNet fix), Only Use ROM Tool - Mods & Misc Fix - SafetyNet Fix in case Pre-Fixed SafetyNet fails.
    • LSPosed Installer : One click install LSPosed in ROM Tool - Mods & Misc fix - INstall LSPosed
    • You must update BL and Modem with this version, else device may not boot.

    Pretty sure the answer is no but getting kind of desperate here.. will this work with the n9860/u snapdragon model? Do I have any options elsewhere for current roms? Nothing is up to date for snapdragon model it seems
    No.

    Apologies.
