In v1.0 the ROM ran smoothly even though it had a few bugs, and in v1.1 it is worse despite having fixed some bugs. in V1.1 the GPS location does not work properly, the phone stutters terribly and the battery drops too quickly, as they wrote above.

Yeah I would recommend using either riseq 1.0 or another rom until some of the issues have been fixed

Why is 'Allow OEM Unlock' toggle missing in developer options after flashing this rom. I was on pixel experience rom and did a clean install. Did i miss anything? Any solutions would be much appreciated.
I have disabled this option to prevent people from getting FRP locked.
Anyway, it doesn't matter if the toggle is there or not, you can simply flash anything you want using recovery or Odin, the toggle is not necessary for that.
 
Hi, does it work for Galaxy A3 2017? In requirements list i can't find it, thanks
No, A3 2017 has a different SoC and it won't work. Try the S20 Android 10 port for A3 2017 by Astrako through the link below:


Disclaimer: Please do read fully through the thread and get informed on all the known bugs if any before you attempt to install. I won't be held responsible if you harm your device in the installation process.

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.

    :D:D:D Well what is the main reason to change from Stock to Custom especially on a Samsung device?

    Yes for everybody probarbly the same reason (mostly the bloatware though), so if I changed into a Custom Rom I have to setup my phone until it is running good and if it is running good I dont change the System. But if you want to change well programming your own ROM and you will get the meaning never change a running System.

    So I noticed you have a running Rom with a Kernel so and it is running good so why to change? Well you can try to use the Rise Kernel if it run in this Rom.

    So at last but not least my quote was because another questions about an Update not for you.

    Any questions or quotes again you smartass?
    Maybe stop with all this dumb arguing and name calling or keep it to PM, this thread isn't the place for this

    Ah Ah yes I understand here is the place to asking always the same dump questions which the developer and other already answered more than one times in this little thread. So it isn't a big deal to find out on what he's working or not.

    And the best thing is the most of those people expecting everything and give nothing.

    Dump questions gives dump answers but well I guess my answers could be a bit helpful if you aren't too lazy to think about that.

    So respect the developer and his work it is for free.

    Hello again to everyone . I have said before that the phone turns itself off and on. After that, I did a clean install again, but that problem still persists. It suddenly restarts itself when there is no overheating problem. My device model is A7 2017. what do you think about this situation?
    Hello.....I have A7 2017 too...I use RiseQ rom now...but didn't face this problem...maybe trying to use rise kernel solve this problem.....just maybe i don't know..
    sorry for my bad english

    Hi, I did not have any of these problems in A7 2017 version 2.1, only a small amount of battery consumption and fingerprint worked in some banking programs, otherwise the rest were great. Thanks to simon 1511 for making this wonderful ROM.

    I'm sure @Simon1511 is tired of getting messages about OneUI 3.1. He said he wouldn't do it, why do you still want it?
    Because people think that they're entitled to everything

    • This mostly happens if you're rooted with Magisk because the system detects that you're rooted and denies DRM. To fix that, install this Magisk Module. Note that DRM will fall back to L3 which means that you won't be able to watch anything in HD.

    UPDATE
    Rise-Q v2.1 is here!

    This is mainly a bugfix release, mostly small things (like removing the fingerprint unlock animation), but also some bigger ones. One of those fixes is Secure folder. I have finally been able to get it to work. To bypass issues with secure folder, I highly recommend to install Secure Folder only when doing a clean flash. I won't reply to bugreports from people who dirty flashed and have issues with it.
    Apart from that, I have seen multiple users report low media sound since v2.0. I compared the sound volume between v1.0, v1.1 and v2.0 and it sounded 100% identical for me. It may be an issue that comes from dirty flashing v2.0 on top of v1.1, so consider a clean flash first and tell me the exact steps to reproduce.

    Finally, as always for a new update, I recommend wiping your system partition before installation to bypass possible issues.

    GOD bless you MR.Simon1511;
    I hope to see android 11 ui3 for a520f Can I see?

    TANX Dear Friend
    Im gonna say this for once so everyone knows about it:
    Do NOT expect a OneUI 3 port from me. In my opinion, the added value between OneUI 2.5 and OneUI 3 is too low for the amount of work this would probably need.
    Apart from that, there would be 2 major problems:
    1. HWC
    2. Samsung Camera

    Our old Pie HWC has been working fine on Pie and Q, but on R Google decided to change HWC related stuff again which makes our Pie HWC incompatible to android 11. And yes, I know that HWC has been fixed on LineageOS 18 for our device, but the fix from there is likely not gonna work on OneUI. In short, this means for you: Broken HWC = very poor performance.
    Also samsung camera is gonna be a problem since all(?) newer samsung devices use a newer camera API that is simply incompatible to our "older" camera implementation.

    Note that these are just a few big bugs we know about so far, but there would probably be even more that would make a ROM based on that pretty much unusable in my opinion.

    So in conclusion: No OneUI 3 for our device(s).

    Apart from that, I want to thank everyone once again for all the bugs you found and reported and all your thankfulness!
