I hate to jump the gun because I always say I fixed it and then my device reboots. However, within the last almost 6 days I had one reboot after 2 days and its been good for the next 4 days. I updated my twrp to newest version. May be 6.0 or 6.9 not sure but I think that may have helped and I hope it helps others. Also, I wiped dalvik and cache in recovery before I flashed new twrp
UPDATE: well it rebooted lol. Took a whole week until I got a reboot though, and I had vanced youtube open when it rebooted. A week is better than 1 or 2 reboots daily I guess.

All versions 2.5 have the same problem. I don't recognize my paid Tello FPV application. Can't fix this?
When will another version appear besides 2.5 can my problem be solved? Because of this I stayed on 2.1 rom Q9.
Or maybe you have a solution?
Thanks.

Wonderful ROM. My fingerprint reader stopped working after some time, seems to be a software issue as I fixed it once by reflashing everything. Any idea what causes this? Only had the issue with this ROM but I am not sure if it's actually because of the ROM.

Dear sir,
Can you suggest me about screen lock error on galaxy note 9 SM-N960N.
I have tried many more process for fixing this error but i couldnt find solution.
In my knowledge this error may caused by google account login in device because I have used [email protected] account instead of @gmail.come after that my screen lock doesnt work and shows error as shown in figure.

Same problem here, i use my banking app only a few times/month... My solution is to freeze the Magisk app with Titanium Backup - and banking works. When i'm done defreezing Magisk and go on ;-)

Can I flash a different csc on this rom? Phone came with Vietnam csc but I'm in United States. Want to download xaa csc firmware and extract the csc and flash it to my phone. Wondering if this is possible or is it even necessary? Thank you if anyone can help me with this. Also, recently I flashed stock firmware on my phone and went back to Dr. Ketan rom and no reboots since atleast over a week or so.

Hi,
The 1000th question about mobile CSC country code o_O
necessary ??? : only you can answer this :giggle:....

Which version of your SM-N960xxxx ???
Which country CSC you release after flashing your Dr ketan Rom ???
Your SIM card was in its slot when flashing and first rebooting Dr Ketan Rom ???
May be you need to buy Dr Ketan's Rom Tool for choosing CSC code exactly wanted... ask to him :rolleyes:

I'm in French country with Korean N960N. My first clean flash Q14 gives me Austrian CSC code... others dirty flash give me Dutch CSC with same SIM card... All is perfectly OK with the LTE phone but :unsure: :unsure::unsure::oops:.

A solution given by others users :
- flash SuperStable Rom where you can choose your CSC code during installation....
- go back to Dr Ketan Rom without SIM card in slot...
- not tested :censored:

Or... you are a DEV.... there're the xml files with CSC country codes on Dr ketan Rom.... :geek:

P.S. : new Official BL and CP have been released for Samsung SM-N960N.... :cool:(y)

;)
:)

    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.

    Thank you so much @dr.ketan. I got Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G as well but I have decided to keep it unrooted so that i can rely on it for banking apps and specially samsung pass and Spay. I love both of them. Android Devs are challenging us time and again by detecting root which stops us to use some of the banking apps when needed.
    So I will keep using Note 9 for root related features and Note 20 for secure apps. I still find it full of features.
    Thanks for all your hardwork for keeping our Note 9 Alive and up to date. 🙏🏻
    What is issue with Google pay & Google password ? both are best alternative to samsung pass & pay.

    Thank you! But look at the year in thread title, it wrongly dates to 23.04.21.

    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.

May this disappointing for some but hopefully you will try to understand.
    Thanks in advance for understanding and keeping patience.
    Again sorry for delay.
