Important : ROM file will remain same for N960F/DS/N, but during installation you have to select CSC files according your device variant and Bootloader files also you needs to download according device variant


Installation Guide - (Read carefully)


- Backup data including Int storage (Mostly wiping It storage will not require but in case needed) and place to PC/Ext Storage
- If you are on stock Pie (Android 9.0) ROM then first update to Stock Q ROM
- If you are on stock Q ROM then first Install TWRP and root (see Gen thread for rooting guide)
I have tested only on official TWRP
- If you are on custom Pie based ROM, We recommend to first flash stock Q ROM and flash TWRP - Format Data (Full wipe that requires to type 'yes' to confirm)
- If you are already on custom ROM Q (Provided you have previously flashed Stock Q ROM and after that never flash stock Pie again) with TWRP, make sure you are having same TWRP as said above
- Download N960_F_DS_DrKetan_custom_ROM_Q0*.zip and MD5 file, Copy ROM zip to Ext SD card/OTG. Use Root Explorer or similar and from device itself check MD5 of ROM and confirm it matches with mention on MD5 file
- Reboot to TWRP and select to wipe data (simple factory reset) should be fine
- Flash ROM zip and must select ROM,and Vendor, all other option from aroma are optional.
- Let it to finish, it may take about 8-10 minutes to finish
- Reboot to download mode & Flash Android Q Bootloader and modem
- Reboot to system
- Let it to reboot and it should boot normally now. In case not then I recommend to Format device (One which required to type 'yes') and then again flash ROM as said above. No need to re flash bootloader again.

Now read below bug and tip section

I used the official TWRP version v3.5.1_9.0 to for flash this ROM and the phone went into bootloop. I went back to TWRP unofficial, TWRP Unofficial v3.3.1-r3.7 by 3arthur6 and it worked perfectly, except at the end, when the phone did not want to open, I waited 5 minutes and in vain. I opened it with a hard reset.

    Installation and Download


    Important :


    - This will void warranty.
    - As of now you will lose Samsung Pay and Secure folder 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 :

    If you are on stock ROM/Recovery, follow below said steps

    1.Enable Developer Option (settings - about phone - Software information - Tap 7 times on build number to activate developer option in settings menu)
    2.Enable OEM Unlock from developer option (If you don't have this option then read this you can't flash ROM before this option available.)
    3.Download and copy ROM File to Ext SD card, Use ES file/Root explorer or any similar to check MD5, it should be match with provided in download section.
    4.Download TWRP
    5.Switch Off device
    6.Press Vol down + Bixby and then connect device to PC to reboot to download mode, press volume up when asked to continue to download mode
    7.Download Odin and open it, Disable 'Auto reboot' from option menu of Odin
    8.Select TWRP (tar image) with AP tab of Odin and Start
    9.Once Successfully flashed, you will see 'Passed' in Odin tab
    10.Disconnect device and hold Vol down + power till screen goes off, Now immediately press Vol Up + Bixby + Power to reboot to TWRP
    11.Select to allow modification
    12.From TWRP, Select WIPE menu - Then FORMAT DATA - You need to type 'yes' to perform wipe. WARNING : This will erase all data including Int SD storage from device
    13.Once format device completes, go back and select REBOOT' Menu and then - 'RECOVERY', This will reboot to TWRP again
    14.Now select Install and navigate path to Ext SD card - ROM zip file, you have copied earlier
    15.Read installation instruction of ChangeLog post for vendor.img It may be available inside ROM zip or may need to flash separately, depending on version of ROM
    15.Let device boot, and read ROM specific Instructions below.


    If you are on CWM recovery and custom ROM already, Follow below said steps.


    1.Download ROM zip and place on Int Storage/Ext SD and check MD5
    2.Reboot to recovery and select factory reset and flash ROM zip you have copied in step 1.
    3.Let device boot,Read ROM specific instructions below.

    Some ROM specific instructions

    1. On boot, you will see a notification about don't use any app that requires root, wait till that notification to disappear. This issue explained in MustRead.txt file in download area. Also after first boot, wait for ROM Tool to open, it will provide option for some important fix.

    2. ROM doesn't have any CSC included as now csc have separate partition (ODM). ROM will not erase/flash/modify files inside odm partition it and you will have your existing CSC even after flashing a ROM

    3.Vendor partition may be included in ROM or available separately (Read changelog of version you are installing) .It is recommended to flash it specifically you are on different base.

    4.Since Pie version, OEM is pre-fixed with kernel patch and after flashing ROM, you may find OEM option in developer settings but it will be disable, it is actually because of hack/fix applied. In real case if it is disabled then you may not able to boot rom with TWRP. Simply ignore it.

    Read ChangeLog of ROM you are going to flash for any specific instructions. Link to changelog is available in next post below.

    Can I dirty flash (without factory reset) ROM? No, We don't recommend it. If you are able to handle consequences with dirty flash then proceed, but don't post bugs in forum without clean installing ROM.
    PS : Who can handle consequences of dirty flashing, they never need to ask this question in forum. ;)


    For Encryption - Read This

    Instructions provided above are for latest version of ROM only, on previous versions of ROM it may or may not be same, we recommend to flash latest ROM only.

    Hello guys
    It's been first time I couldn't visit xda for about a week since last few years. I have planned update last week but couldn't. As we know life have some priorities, and xda is not on top so hope you can understand. Trying my best to come back but yet unable to give date. May this disappointing for some but hopefully you will try to understand.
    Thanks in advance for understanding and keeping patience.
    Again sorry for delay.
    Regards
    Dr.Ketan

    Dear friends,

    Take care,
    Regards
    Dr.Ketan.
