Thanks for getting back - I wasn't sure what info to post.
So What I did:
1. Used ODIN to install a stock Flash File "SM-A405FN_2_20210401115508_ciabtdqry9_fac" (AP_A405FNXXU3CUC4_CL21112005_QB39200858_REV00_user_low_ship_meta_OS11.tar is one of the files inside the downloaded stock rom)
2. Installed TWRP "twrp-installer-3.5.2_9-0-a40".
3. Installed "multidisabler-samsung-3.1" from TWRP.
4. After reboot, Wiped /system, /data and cache.
5. installed your ROM.
6. When I turn on the phone i get the standard SAMSUNG first boot screen. Then a message about 'press power to ignore the unlocked bootloader and resume booting'. Then I get a black screen and I have to hold vol - and power to restart (happens again and again)

note: I'm not sure why you mentioned 'Vendor altF4'? That's a different rom in an unrelated post as I understood it.

Hope this helps (and maybe you can correct where I'm getting confused.)!

When i select WIPE from TWRP I get Dalvik/cache/system/data/internal storange/micro sd card/USB OTG but I don't get 'Vendor' as an option to wipe sorry!

I went ahead and installed that Vendor file anyway and then your ROM and IT WORKS!!! omg thanks so much.

All seems to work except an odd issue with the phone app. The UI doesn't appear if someone rings me or if I make a phone call (incomming calls do ring but I can't see the UI to answer for example!).

I fixed this by going into the settings for the "phone app->advanced->Select as default phone app"

Using a bit more here's the issue's I have:
- Enabling 'Double tap power button to turn on touch' it buggy. The torch switches on for 2 seconds and then the feature won't work until you next swtich the screen on and off again.
- Search bar on the homescreen(lawnmower app) doesn't work when you click on it. I can't remove it either. I suspect this is because I installed the 'CORE' version of NikGapps.

I'll keep you updated on how this ROM goes! I'm sticking with it for now as it's WAY faster, nicer looker, easier to use, than stock Samsung.

GPS is working very well! I just needed to go outside to get a good signal.

New issue/bug:
The phone screen doesn't turn off when I make a phone call or put the phone close to my face during a call (I have to push the power button to disable the screen for phone calls). This likely happens because the A40 doesn't have a proximity sensor and uses the front camera instead?
I had this when using LinageOS on the older 2017 edition of the A40 but it was eventually fixed in a dev update to the fork of LinageOS built for that version so this is a familiar issue!

Using this ROM still! Here's my update:
Pros:
- WOW. It's fast. Like really fast and snappy.
- Very clean and fluid feel.
- Looks great.
Cons:
- Screen stays on unless you push the power button in a call.
- The camera app (including other camera apps) doesn'st detect the 3rd wide-angle camera.
- The camera app (including other camera apps) can't focus when using the rear camera.
Overall:
Still better than stock Samsung if you really hate bloat!

I tried the new recent version after having tried the original version of this OS. It's a lot better - takes up around 1.6GB of RAM (with NikGApps Core) and boots fast. Issue thtat keeps me from using it as my daily driver is the in-call phone issue - when you're in a call, you can still accidently slide the notifcation bar down using your ear and actvate features on the screen even through the screen is off.

Hello Thank u for the Report but i have test what u faced, so on my phone everything is normal. Greets.
What firmware version are you on? I can try using the same version if u had a link and I can report back. To replicate the problem:
-Call anyone (or just the answer phone).
- while your head is by the earpiece and so the screen is switched off, use your finger to swipe from the top of the phone to the bottom.
- take your face away and the screen will light up again but will show the notification area as that part of the screen was still active.
