that was your mistake.

please read carefully dr.ketans guide on using method 01:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-9/how-to/root-note-9-n960f-fd-experimental-t3832143

do NOT skip any of the steps.

when flashing his root oem fix, in aroma setup choose patch oem fix and magisk root.( say yes to all)

i have the same phone as you and it works if you follow everything.

Sorry I mis-read the question. It only success on flashing Stock firmware and boots. After that, I can't flash TWRP

ok then since the initial problem you will have to wait a few days till state is checking instead of prenomal. but i was able to get it to switch to "checking" withing 1 or 2 hours.

try to disable oem unlock and wait a few hours. also go check software update menu again after the reset. ( disabling oem unlock will reset device) maybe also remove sim before disabling oem unlock. also try to login samsung and Google account while waiting. something will trigger the prenormal state back to checking. i just dont know what. but as i said its possible to make it change within a few hours.


also the very 1st attempt to flash twrp you made a while ago, what did you do? did it flash but then it gave you the red binaries error on 1st reboot? something must have happened for this prenomal status to appear....

The phone vendor screwed up my phone and it got the prenormal state. I don't know this is a time-based check.
I disabled the oem unlock. I will update when something changes.

i know this this link is not 100% exactly like your issue( you at least have oemunlock) but it does cover prenormal status:

edit: xda is being racist on urls, this should work:

maybe if you follow the steps it can work.

yes exactly.
but something happened to make it prenormal...
Same here. It got locked again AND OEM unlock disappeared from Dev options!
Only trick that worked for me was to date back the device (I picked 2 weeks back in time), disconnect wifi/sim, reboot into recovery, factory reset or install a new rom zip and wipe through that,
then after the aroma setup etc. is done power off, put sim back in, wifi on and auto update time online etc.
OEM option came back in dev options.
You have to trick it into having installed it earlier. Don't ask me why, but it works.

Mà sợ coa bản twrp upded mới nếu cài dc thì rom coock sợ ko cài dc vì thấy rom coock ae làm toàn trên nên level 1+2. Hix
You dont understand about rom cook. Rom cook dont touch BL & BB. Just PDA & CSC. So your broblem is twrp. If you can flash twrp then it fine. As I recommend from our site. Try to downgrade to lower base first.

Hi, I flashed twrp upgrade and now i lost access to /data and internal storage... I read that solution is based on format data after installation of twrp.

The problem is: I have twrp backup in internal storage. I have media with backup in internal storage.

Any idea to access this files before format data? maybe from ADB?

Thanks

Hi all, when I installed the TWRP on my Note 9, I use it to backup regularly until last month. It prompted error unable to continue the backup. I tried reboot a few times but invalid to backup. I doubt the new installed apps will cause the TWRP stopps. I did install some apps last month. I could not think why the TWRP suddenly stops working.. Any idea?

It's now more than a year now on this TWRP and I have zero issue with it on my N9, even on android 10. Who cares title shows official or unofficial.

    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

    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.
