But I rooted my old device and unroofed it and still worked I don't know why on Samsung it doesn't work, but thanks for the help

Try the following:

1. Disable OEM Unlock in the developer options menu
2. Disable developer option menu (delete data/cache for "Settings" in Apps menu)
3. Reboot the device
4. Open Play Store, go to settings and at the bottom check whether device is shown as certified.

Looks like a serious vulnerability for Note 8 on Pie? Hopefully we can have Android 10 for protection ??


It works by mirroring the appearance of legitimate apps: When a user clicks on the icon of a legitimate app, a malicious login page is displayed on the screen, tricking victims into providing their information.

Is there any way to increase touch sensitivity? I have tweaks pro but can't find a way to increase it other than navigation bar option in settings.

Unable to add a card on Google Pay - using latest P12 - 30.12.2019 with no root.

There's any way around it? phone must be encrypted.

Edit: Solved only by a full flash of the original firmware from Sammobile, then the first procedure from:

After that, had to manually install Magisk from TWRP as the expected from Dr. Ketan ROM setup was missing.

Long time user of this ROM. I was looking at my CSC and found Im using a french csc (XEF).. Im in US on T-mobile. Looking to switch to TMB csc but not in the list of CSC codes (via phone info). The old CSC.zip Keton provided is no longer an active link. How do I load a TMB CSC? Its not in Aromoa, reloading rom doesn't reselect. Im a bit lost on the CSC thing here..help :)

Hi all

I just want to try determine if anyone is still using this ROM? If you've considered other more up-to-date ROMS, what is your reason for still using this one?

The fact that development is abandoned is tempting to to try other ROMS like Deluxe & Hades... however I'm still quite happy with this ROM to be honest, as it offers all of the customizations I would want in a central place, let's me easily switch between single and dual sim, it works with my provider CSC (XFV) including wifi calling and volte etc... and I don't want to struggle to get those things working on another ROM if it's not worth it. I also purchased Tweaks Pro which has some cool features that I use, and my license still works, so I'm confused what to do...

Anyone who's in a similar situation but pulled the trigger on trying a new ROM and have any feedback to share? Is it worth moving to another ROM for our N950's, and if so do you have any suggestions? Thanks

    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 This TWRP by tkkg1994 for Oreo which is ready to flash using Odin (For Nougat download this and extract to tar.md5)
    5.Switch Off device
    6.Press Vol down + Bixby + Power 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.Let device boot, and read ROM specific Instructions below.
    16.If ROM doesn't include your original CSC - Read post #5

    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.
    4.If ROM doesn't include your original CSC - Read post #5

    Some ROM specific instructions

    1. On boot, you may not able to use ROM tool or some few features for first few minutes. This issue explained in MustRead.txt file in download area.

    3.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. ;)

    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.

    1.Download your original firmware from samfirmware or updato or any similar
    2.Make copy of it, in case it messed up then you may need not to re download again
    3.Rt click on PC on file you have download and select 7zip and select open archive (you may use any other similar to winzip if you wish)
    4.You will see a file name started with HOME_CSC_***.tar.md5
    5.Drag and drop that file to PC
    6.Reboot device to download mode and select HOME_CSC_**.tar.md5 file with CSC tab of Odin and flash
