So you weren't supposed to use the OTA.

What you want to try is :
- Boot into TWRP
- Backup Data
- Wipe System/Data/Dalvik/Cache/Vendor
- Reflash Sakura 5.R April 2021
- Flash GApps
- Restore Data
- Reboot System

This should bring your device to back to working order.
I had to flash stock firmware... couldn't even get to TWRP.
Now I can't even get TWRP to flash successfully with Odin so I'm stuck. :(

No matter what I try, I am getting an error after flashing TWRP in Odin and trying to reboot to recovery manually.
The error is in download mode:
Code:
Recovery: Error validating footer. (Something cut off here because of the A20's front camera)
CUSTOM RECOOVERY

    Did you make sure that Bootloader OEM unlock is showing in Developer Options before flashing TWRP in ODIN?

    Yes, that is unlocked.
    Seems like a vbmeta.img error, maybe try flashing the one from the rooting/flashing guide by Physwizz?
    Thank you, that is what solved it. I assume it's something to do with vbmeta.img and boot.img not being included with the new TWRP, should I be re-compressing a new tar file with those files included in it to upgrade to latest TWRP for A20?

    To update TWRP, you can flash the 'twrp.img' to the Recvoery slot in TWRP. No need to reflash in ODIN.

    Any reason 5G wifi is disabled in this ROM?

    I noticed that on stock firmware 5G networks show, but for some reason in Project Sakura 5G is disabled. Is there a way to turn this on anywhere that I am missing?

    Sound seems to be broken on the latest build. Even when I kept the settings at 100 %, the sound is like 40% compared to the stock one? Any fix? Or is it just me? Thanks in advance.

      Try Viper4Android, you can find it on the Magisk App modules list.

      Does anyone else have any problems with notification sounds not playing? Mine are silent.
      Check if you have "Noisy Notifications" turned ON.

      Can someone please post a review of yhis Rom? I'm currently on Android 11 gsi and considering moving to this. Is everything working like stock?
      This ROM is working very well. Been my daily for the past month. 100%-20% with 10 hours SOT.
