Exynos ONLY.
In NO way it is compatible with Snapdragon variants including but not limited to American(U/A/T/P/V), Chinese(0/8/6), Hong Kong(0), Japanese(SC-*), Canadian(W) variants.


Special Notes:
1. DON'T FORGET TO ENABLE "OEM UNLOCK" (located in Developers options).
2. KNOX will be tripped once you flashed custom binaries to your phone.
(Your warranty may be voided. However this may not affect you if your country forces Samsung to provide hardware warranty regardless of software status.)
3. Samsung Firmware OTA (aka System Updates) will no longer work once you flashed custom binaries.
(You can flash custom ROMs if you want to keep the OS up-to-date.)
4. All apps that use KNOX like Samsung pay, Secure Folder and maybe more will no more work

Not starts in Download

I m not able to enter Download mode on note9. It is continuously restarting.
When phones is off, i m holding Volume -, Bixby and Power. Phone vibrates once, turns on, but after 4-5 second, again vibrates and shows starting logo, and it continously repeating until i hold all three buttons. If i release power it boots in safe mode..

What i m doing wrong ?

If I press Vol +, bixby + power it successfully goes to recovery..

Is any other way to flash this package, may through adb in recovery mode ?

Got it. It has to be connected by USB to Odin 1.13, then these keys works like expected

Also tested on N960F and can confirm that it works. Back up created and reboot to system worked flawlessly. No zips to flash as yet but works fine for me.

    Hi guys!

    I have successfully worked on build the twrp 3.3.0-0 (first time I do that) for our note 9.
    After few days of use all seems ok!
    But I need more feedback to be sure. So it's up to you!

    I optimized some features :
    - Removed unused and space hungry System Image backup option
    - Vendor is no more backed up as disk image, save more space in back up
    - Tried to get better read/write external sdcard speeds, seems to match my sdcard specs now (I especially need your tests about that)
    - Probably improve MTP compatibility (USB connection), closer to aosp, it fixed some MTP issues I had with previous TWRP on Ubuntu

    I will probably open a new thread and perhaps inquire to integer my build tree in official twrp.
    At the moment, as I said, more feedbacks are needed.
