xFireFist Presents: xFire ROM for the Galaxy S9/S9+
Created as an alternative to samsung's original software and based on _alexndr's devbase this project
aims to bring the perfect balance between featureset, performance and stability for day-to-day use!
This rom has the bare essentials to get you going, as well as a few tweaks or mods provided by me.
SafetyNet status is preserved so in theory you should not have any problems with Netflix Snapchat or
banking (if you are into that)

Hi,

thank you very much for your work.

Please dont take it personal, but why you build a rom for an device you dont own ?

Thats not a good idea tbh, cause you can brick a device from a member.

Best regards

While that is true there are alot of good unbrick tutorials for Samsung devices out there, as long as you don't mess with the efs or the bootloader the unbrick process is a breeze.
If anybody is having issues im happy to help, currently working on fixing the rom also im looking on buying an exynos 9810 device soon.

I was waiting for the march update to roll-out.
This or the next week i will start working on it again, but for now here's a great combination that i would highly recommend:
_alexndr's DevBase found here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...-development/rom-u1arc5-devbase-v5-2-t3764822
and yapiin's WhiteWolf kernel which offers brilliant performance but also amazing stability found over here:https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga.../kernel-white-wolf-kernel-13-11-2018-t3866571
Some important notes:
Installing DevBase without magisk or uninstalling it will cause a bootloop if you are using the stock kernel.
Installing WhiteWolf kernel will remove magisk so it's great if you are planning to use snapchat or any other apps that refuse to work on the presence of magisk or root.
After installing DevBase, if you encounter a bootloop download the stock rom from sammobile and flash it via odin with the option 'nand erase' selected.

Version 2.0 of the xFire ROM is now out!
It's based on _alexndr's DevBase 7.3 and it's powered by yarpiin's awesome WhiteWolf kernel.
xFire ROM is no longer pre-rooted so you have to install magisk manually if you wish to use it!
S9 (starlte) build is also now available!
Some extra features are:
- Safety net passes meaning you can probably use banking applications without any issues, snapchat is also confirmed working without any issues however be carefull if you decide to root or to restore backups since doing so may get your account suspended, any unauthorized modifaction such as tampering or restoring a backup containing snapchat will guaranteed get your account suspended.
- Custom startup logo
.
- Perfmance pretty close to universal9820 devices (S10/S10+/S10e/N10/N10+) thanks to yarpiin's awesome WhiteWolf kernel.
- As close to stock as possible,pretty fast but also rock stable for everyday use.

not working on SM-G965F (phone rebooting it self)
Did you install it properly (formatting data and wiping system cache dalvik)? If you arent in an android 10 bootloader i would suggest downloading the latest bootloader from sammbile and flashing it, if that doesent solve it flash tha latest firmware using odin with the 'nand erase' option selected then install twrp and try again.
Let me know if you solved the issue!

    The file has been removed because of the following bug:
    A continuous bootloop occurs after setting a pin or a password.

    Version 2.0.1 hotfix changes:
    - Stock kernel instead of WhiteWolf
    - Magisk is pre-installed because without it the device will not boot properly (with the stock kernel)
    - Removed Bixby and all its related applications/services.
    - Removed Chrome, Maps, Google Text to speech, Maps, Gmail, YouTube (you can download those from the play store if you need to do so).
    - Removed 'Kids home' and its related service.

    If you set a pin or a password with the stock kernel you can flash WhiteWolf again for the perfomance benefits (It will also remove Magisk), hopefully this issue will be fixed soon.
    I will upload the new ROM files as soon as i can!

    Version 2.1.0 is now out, it is based on the latest firmware from samsung with the April security patch, along with that a few issues from the previous versions have been resolved.
    Please note this rom isnt pre-rooted therefore you will have to flash magisk separately if you need it!
