Recommended Installation Steps

We Don't recommends/supports dirty flash, but one thing to note, you always should remove lockscreen & Biometric data before flashing ROM in case you gonna flash dirty.

ROM tested with Ian TWRP ( Download area have it) Credit & Thanks @ ianmacd Here is link for OP and source code.

MultiDisabler is require only those, who want to use stock ROM + TWRP. If you want to flash DrKetan ROM, DONT FLASH MULTIDISABLER

Once you manage to fix it, follow below given tips and go through Add On & Bug bix section below




Important Notes once you finish installing ROM

DON'T INSTALL ANY DISABLER/BT FIX/MAGISK anything after flashing ROM, as ROM already pre patched for all these stuff. Additionally flashing may cause issue. Also you shouldn't WIPE device after flashing ROM, but It should be before flashing ROM.

- It may take 6-7 minutes to finish installation. once installation finish, select reboot to system

- After this first of all open magisk and check if installed correctly, If it ask for complete additional setup, let it do and reboot.(If ROM being installed as said, then it won't ask)

I recommend to disable magisk notification (Magisk - setting - superuser notification - none (This will make mods to work much faster)

After looking magisk is installed properly, open ROM Tool and apply essential Fix - Reboot device after applying essential fix

If you are using Gear watch or other accessory, setup it and finish rest of personal installation.

Done !

Special Note for Gear wearable & Gear SPay

Spay (Gear) working out of box (As per my test), provided you have installed required apps.
To connect it flawlessly,
1.Clean Install ROM + Open ROM Tool and Apply Essential Fix - Reboot
2.Make sure Magisk manager safetyNet check pass
3.Connect gear with Bluetooth (Gear should factory reset) and this will auto install all required apps.
Once Gear connects, simply open Samsung Pay from Galaxy Wearable app - Hide it in Magisk Hide and you should able to add card.

Important : If you want to use EdXposed with Gear Spay then first add your card before installing EdXposed


I recommend clean Installation only. If you are able to handle consequences with dirty flash then proceed, but don't post bugs in forum without clean installing ROM.


Tips,AddOn & Fix

- SafetyNet Fix - Read Here

- Rebooting device after appearing lockscreen

- 3 minit users can use 3minit battery paid version for free. Check this (Thanks to gharrington )

- Stuck while flashing something (Bootloop), How can I reboot to download
There is a golden rule that always works when you stuck anywhere (bootloop). Follow this -
1.Plugin device to PC
2.Keep holding power + vol down
3.As soon as screen goes blank, keep holding vol up + vol down (here you needs to be quick)
And you are in download mode.

- EdXposed You can directly install from Magisk download repositories

- Read ROM Tool - Update & Fix if any new available.

I have a weird issue. Everything works perfect on the new R Android, except for one thing. Some apps that use fingerprint sign-in (such as my banking app) don't work well because it keeps saying a new fingerprint got added and I have to re-enable it in settings for security reasons. But I haven't added any new fingerprints, they are still the same. Any idea what may cause this?

I have been struggling with the new R03 for a few hours. All is good until I flash N975F_twrp-3.5.0_9-1-d2s_official_jan21.tar.md5. Then I cannot seem to get into TWRP, and when I boot back into R3, I cannot get past the lock screen. I installed R03 first, then the new TWRP. I have to go back to the N975_DrKetan_R01_Ian_TWRP_Q_304_3_dec.tar.md5 and after I flash that I have to restore back to R02 and start the process over.

At first I throught I had a bad download of the new TWRP, but I downloaded it a couple times and the same thing happens.

Still trying to figure out what I did wrong. Anyone else had weird things happen after flashing new TWRP?
