Thanks. Just don't forget to read Changelog post of version you are goinbg to install. Everything is mentioned there.
Best way is to clean install. If not, at least remove all the modules before installing ROM
Dr Ketan

I will try the pro version, only one question in regards to the ROM Tool can you underfrequency drop to a lower frequency the processor with any kind of profile that will allow the phone to sustain more battery and scree ln on time ?! Also can you edit prop.ini ? Thank you in advanced

ROM tool is part of xda verison, all features in changelog post here are comes with xda version and need not to buy.
Changing frequency is feature of kernel, I have no any plan to jump to kernel development as of now, so it won't be available in any version

Kernel certainly affects systemwise permorfance, wheather it is my ROM or stock ROM. But yes, shouldn't affect any my ROM related stuff.

How to root S908E (Snapdragon) Beta1 S908EXXU2ZVHK (Android 13)

Here is Root files for S908EXXU2ZVHK.

Installation :
  • Unlock bootloader
  • Download (link below) and extract root files to get *tar.md5 file
  • Turn off Auto reboot option in Odin
  • Flash extracted *.tar.md5 with Odin AP slot
  • When file get flashed (You will see PASS), Keep holding Vol Down + Power (With device connected to PC). Once device reboot, immediately release vol down button and keep holding power + vol up (For a moment you needs to release and hold again poswer button when asked), this will reboot device to recovery - select to factory reset
  • Reeboot to system. Update Magisk from stub OR Install Magisk 25.2 apk

Download :

Does the VHK IMG include a permissive kernel what's in the boot img? Is it just a patched Magisk boot.img?

Embarrassed to say, I'm still on S07 but a pro user. Just have had a lot of mental health related problems and haven't had the will power to reflash. Out of curiosity, is it possible to dirty flash to current from S07?

Just having a problem that for all I know has been there for awhile but I've only now noticed it and it's bugging me.

The front camera cutout is HUGE and a bit misaligned. It's off to the right a bit and covers up stuff like tabs in a browser. Is this a known issue? Display setting per app to disable it doesn't seem to work either.

Update to this post

Tested on S22 ultra too. It seems mess google have made on A13 (Causing issue on system app modification) is having decent fix now. After trying couple of workaround, it seems fixed completely. Yet very limited tested. Planning to make next vesion with fix for test users for wide testing before release to public. I will put dev notes once I found it stable for public release.

Next beta release coming next week. Which method in samsungkeystoreutils.jar needs changing to get Private Share to work? Old method from One UI 4.X no longer works.

What version of apktool do you use? I have no problem after decompile. after using the edited systemui on reboot the device will lose the UI. I think the problem lies in Zipalign not working properly on A13. Hope you can share your way. Thank you very much.
It has nothing to do with apktool or zipalign
It new security layer that blocks modification on Android 13
Thats what I was talking above.

    Proposed ROM development now onwards :

    Looking to poll results, it seems most users wants Full system-rw ROM including Mods. So finally found a way so users with any choices won't get disappointed.

    • To make a Full ROM + Mods (No Magisk module requires). This will only for S908B & S908E - This will be for users with choice 1
    • Above said ROM will have option in ROM Tool to remove customization, with this you can remove all customization and retain with pure stock experience. Before removing customization, still you can apply essential fix so it will keep all important systemless fix like SafetyNet/GPay etc. - This will be for users with choice 2
    • Magisk Model development will remain continue for all other variants including S908B/E

    I am Testing Full ROM including mods now on S908E, soon it will be public.
    Thank you for trust & support for ROM!

    PS : Full ROM is under testing now!

    - 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
