I had a popup to restart my phone after switching data from sim one to sim 2.... swapping my sims... my phone keeps telling me to restart my phone and each reboot which prevented me to do anything on the phone. I had to wipe and clean flash again.
I dont have that issue again. Now am scared of removing my sim in other not to have such issue again. Im using A520FD

Going forward, i will back up my present setup and try to remove my sim...
Also, there is a page to choose data sim or to keep the current settings which i chose sim1.
I guess this made things work fine at my second installation.

After 2 days of use, I only encountered 2 problems: the fingerprint which does not work in the Aegis application (I know the problem is from OneUi 2) and the inability to activate "SecurisPass" on my banking application.

voLTE works, but you have to manually set the access point. In previous versions this was done automatically. Excellent work again Simon1511 ,thank you for taking care of our old phones and supporting.

    Yes, my country and mobile operator support it. It works in 1.0 and 1.1, tomorrow I will try again. Thanks for the answer.
    Try to check if your operator has enabled volte for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 lite. Since that's the device this rom is based on, the operators think you have a Note 10 lite.
    Previous versions were based on A7 2018.

    Hi.
    I have a problem with the latest version of this ROM.
    I tried to connect to my university's wifi. But when the wifi's login page was opening, the phone reboot itself.
    After that the phone kept connecting to the wifi and kept rebooting. I had to boot into safe mode and turn off wifi connection in order to not get my phone stuck in boot loop.
    Can you look up this bug and fix it?

    It's not bug because others did not experience it. Try to clean flash.
    Tried it. Still not working.
    The problem only occurs when i connected to a network that requires account authorization to login. Like my university's one.
    Normal wifi connection worked without any problem.

    Out of my own experience, I can say that there are no problems with WiFi networks that require authorization. My college/university uses a similar system and it works just fine for me and everyone else I know. Be sure to select the correct settings and login information for your university's wifi. (e.g. I need to choose a specific certificate for mine, which happens on all ROMs though).

    Ok! Here I am after a week's use. (A720F/DS - Battery in good condition according to battery apps - Coming From Korean Pie - Phone has been working for just over 3 years)

    The ROM works smooth as butter, almost stock like experience. Haven't experienced any lag spikes.
    Coming from Korean Pie, I feel a tiny bit more battery usage. However considering that a little trade off for all the extra features you get with One UI 2.5, I'm totally fine with it. The only area I experienced inconveniences as others mentioned is the fingerprint unlock. On day 2 trying to unlock using fingerprint, after an unresponsive 15 seconds the display turned on and showed a system UI crash pop up. I haven't gotten any other crashes so far but fingerprint sometimes responds with delay.
    Moving over to nightly battery drain, it has improved a lot compared to Version 1.1. On previous version battery dropped by at least 35 to 50 percent on nights and I mostly woke up to find the battery dead. (with Wi-Fi on and connected) With the current build, on day 1 the battery dropped by 20 percent over night which I'd say is due to fresh install and the phone was still adapting to usage patterns. Day 2 and onward these are the nightly battery drain results (in % and also with Wi-Fi connected): 15 - 12 - 7 - 9 - 11 - 8 which are normal.
    Extended gaming sessions on this ROM results in the device heating up a bit and after about 10 to 15 mins the gameplay gets framey (FPS Drop), especially if your charger is connected. I disabled the physical navigation keys when flashing the ROM so I can use Game Launcher and Tools. One UI 2.5 also comes with two more game related apps called Game Plugins and Game Optimizing Service. These two allow you to customize how each game can utilize your hardware and help reduce lag. Overall if you're planning on extended Gaming on your phone, this ROM might not be for you.

    That's all I have to say about my user experience. If I haven't mentioned anything that doesn't work for you, it could be due to any of these:
    it's working for me - haven't gotten to test it yet - you have an A5 and it's an A5 related issue (very unlikely)

    I hope it helps you if you're looking forward to installing this Rom.

    Thank you very much for this awesome rom ! I've been using the last version for a couple of days, it seems pretty stable. No real lags (I think korea rom was a bit smoother but hey), gps and stuff work good.
    Only thing I encountered is with the Bluetooth, I connected some speakers but the phone seems to forget it everytime I try to reconnect (I need to pair it manually and the speaker doesn't show up in the saved list).
    Again good job 👍

      Been using A9 oneUI 1.5 by hades and because I want to try A10, I surf the net and found this. The latest was v1.1 at that time and the lags / freezing occured quite a lot so I had to go pixel eventho it's been discontinued
      And when the v2 comes out I immediately use it and bruh this rom is the real deal, the A10 oneUI 2.5 runs smoothly on my ancient a520f

      Thankyou so much to corsi, simon, and all other custom rom devs for making stuff like these so our ancient device doesn't feel antique
      You guys also encourage me to learn how to create / port so maybe later I can create a perfect rom for my need and can contribute to the community

      There should be a magisk module that fixes bluetooth pairing, we had this issue when testing the first version and that solved it until the patch was put into the rom, also yeah korean is effectively stock based and this isn't so that'll probably be more stable but riseq is very very good now, just a couple of issues left
      Smooth as butter. Thank you so much. Also can you kindly help me with compatible gcam that has portrait mode

      You could try zgcam since that gcam definitely works and is great for photos, although i'm not sure about portrait mode

      Thank you very much mate. This version is great. It's been 15 days, I use it intensively and actively, with lots of apps installed. I have hardly seen any mistakes. I have never even seen a horse. Thank you. Thanks for your efforts.

      To fix this, switch the WiFi channel of your router to a channel between 1 and 10 (11 to 13 seem to be problematic at the moment)

      NOTE for those who want/need to restore EFS backups:
      I created a GitHub repository that contains a flashable zip template that will allow you to restore previous EFS backups.
      DON'T FLASH THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE SERIOUS ISSUES LIKE
      • corrupted EFS partition
      • IMEI or any other EFS information being broken
      I am NOT responsible for any damage that may happen to your device!

      UPDATE
      Rise-Q v2.0 is here!

      At first, I want to thank @ananjaser1211 for his fixes and of course for answering all my stupid questions. Also thanks to @Option58 for upstreaming our kernel to Linux 3.18.140. Finally, huge thanks to all testers on Telegram for even finding the tiniest bugs.
      As this release of Rise-Q is now based on OneUI 2.5 from Galaxy Note 10 Lite, dirty flashing it over Rise-Q v1.0 or v1.1 will in most cases not work! It is highly recommended to wipe /data in recovery before installing Rise-Q v2.0.
      You can find downloads and the changelog of this release down below.

      I created a GitHub repository that contains a flashable zip template that will allow you to restore previous EFS backups.

      • corrupted EFS partition
      • IMEI or any other EFS information being broken

      I have been installing software on my phones for years. I use Twrp and I do very successful uploads. I do not experience problems such as crashing, freezing, application crash. This rise Q v1.0 software was also considered partially successful, although a bit slow, it was still successful. But v1.1 sucks dude, there is freezing, hardening, slowing down. Touch detects too late, sensors react with delay. As a result, I uninstalled the software. I installed android 9 v.1.5 hades again. at least incredibly fast. Thanks for your effort.
      I am in fact aware of the issues in v1.1. But sadly I have been busy with real-life stuff for the past month, so I had no time to investigate. I will very soon start working on this project and will hopefully find out what causes the lag and performance issues.
      Thanks for your feedback.
