Sounds awesome!
DeX on A-series devices.
I would sacrifice Knox by rooting for having DeX instead.
What about A52 5G support?
Will there be a custom ROM supporting DeX for A52 5G?
I don't have an A52 5G so, no.
I've left instructions on how to do it on my github page, all my edits, my deleted apps, my replaced apps, everything is in there if anybody wants to try with other devices. Should be pretty easy.

This ROM is superb!!
Just wondering, how do I enable RCS in the stock messaging app? The options are missing. I know it's debloated, but I prefer it over other messaging apps. Also, is there a way to disable that "press the power button" to boot thing?

PS: I've updated all the apps from Galaxy Store and remaster picture works just fine. So far, I have not encountered any error using it.

I'm not sure what RCS is, I apologize. Can't help you here

Guys, I bring unfortunate news. I will no longer be making Odin installable versions, quite honestly it's much more work than what it's worth.

July is the last update I bring that can be installed in Odin.

I've completed the August patch and currently it's only available for TWRP installation.

I'll probably make a new thread or just edit this one, I don't know yet.

Sorry if I disappoint some of you

After TWRP is properly posted in a thread here in XDA, I will start posting my TWRP installer builds
But for now, they're exclusive to the Telegram groups.
that's a shame, guess we won't see it here for a while... i've tried the current one being shared requiring an otg plug in and when I format data and reboot, it always reboots to the twrp, if i install a different recovery, i have to do format of data and fresh start to get back to my phone. recovery says my data is corrupt is reason.

    RayOS S21FE Port for Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G
    Here we go again. I can't live without S21FE system, so now I ported it to my newest device, the Galaxy A52s 5G. It was a little bit more tricky with limited options when it comes to recovery, but it's now available. Since TWRP isn't released yet, I packaged it together to flash with Odin. I've tested it myself and it works for me, but as everything in XDA in uncertain, flash at your own risk.


    Code:
    * Warning, your warranty is now void.
    * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about flashing this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. HARD!

    Supported variants!
    • SM-A528B


    Features!

    • Smart Widgets (Already on S21FE FW by default)

    Sources!
    I decided to show my work so to speak on GitHub. You can see the list of all the apps I removed and all the lines that were added to camera and floating features. Feel free to take a look and make pull requests if you want me to add something on potential future releases.

    Bugs!
    • Remaster picture breaks if you update system apps with Galaxy Store. I still don't know the exact app update that breaks this (it's not Gallery) but you have been warned.
    • SSRM Warning on every reboot. You can bypass this by flashing the SSRM Warning Removal magisk module in this thread. Will hopefully add this fix natively on future updates
    • You tell me


    Changelog!
    • 18/July/2022: Release based on June S21 FE Firmware (G990U1UEU3CVF2)


    Links!


    Instructions!
    • This will wipe your phone, including media. So backup any media you may have on the phone.
    • Extract all the files using 7-Zip
    • Make sure you've correctly unlocked your bootloader
    • Reboot phone into download mode
    • Place each AP, BL, CP and CSC in their respective locations
    • Flash
    • Odin will reboot your phone once complete
    • Done

    Recover camera!
    Samsung software locked the camera on the a52s for some reason. It's easy to bypass, just change the props to anything else [A52 4G should work, but you can chose literally anything other than A52s to make it work]
    For those who are less knowledgeable on how to do it, here's a quick guide:

    • Install the Magisk app from the official GitHub releases (The fw is already Magisk patched, so just installing the app normally should give you root access)
    • Download the Magisk Props Config Magisk module from their thread (make sure you give them a like on the thread)
    • Install a terminal emulator (Termux recommended from Playstore)
    • Install the Magisk Props Config module using Magisk
    • Reboot
    • Open your terminal emulator and type su to give it root permission
    • Type props and it should take you to the props menu
    • Select Edit device fingerprint (option 1)
    • Select Pick a certified fingerprint (option f)
    • Select Samsung (option 26) and select any model you want (It can be Android 11 or 12, doesn't matter)
    • After selecting a model, it should ask you to reboot
    • After reboot, your camera should work. If it doesn't work, force stop it and delete any data it may have already saved and then try again.

    Update: Guys, it seems that adding the DeX standalone feature (that allows you to activate DeX without a monitor) breaks DeX to PC. So I'll have to fix it in the next update to be optional.

    As of now, DeX to PC will remain broken until next release. DeX wireless still works at least.

    FAQ
    Q: Will this work on A52 4G or A52 5G?
    A: No, I included A52s 5G specific vendor with hw libs. This will only work on A52s 5G. There is already an A52 4G version here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...s21fe-port-for-galaxy-a52-sm-a525g-f.4454855/

    Q: Will this work on A73?
    A: I have no clue. I've been told HW is very similar with a few lib exceptions but I honestly have no interest on supporting this device. Anyone else is free to try and flash and fix it for A73, you've got my support.

    Q: How can I report a bug?
    A: Try and be as detailed as possible on how you encountered the bug. If you can include a logcat then even better. The more information provided the more likely it is to get the bug fixed.

    Enjoy guys!
    Sorry if you get bombarded with bloat at initial set-up. I deleted the apps but they still show up. The good thing is that 90% of them are uninstall-able by long pressing and installing them from home
    Hope I can get them fully removed on future updates.

    Yoooo a Custom ROM pooog! OneUI based, but at least something! Not gonna flash right now, I'm on vacation and don't have access to Odin, but maybe later.
