Review after using it for around two months. So far I found everything to be working great.
Minor bug : Paired bluetooth devices are lost after some time.
Why I had to uninstall this rom : the rom is resource hungry and I was stuck many times while doing day to day task like making upi payments. I tried to find out some way to disable some features like floating window but couldn't find any way to do so. Now I installed turboport v3 which is even faster than the original rom all thanks goes to @Akhil99
Hi dear,
Thanks for the honest feedback, I really appreciate the long term use review.
Can I know what version you were using? V1 or V2?
I will be working on V3 soon which will be final update and I will fix all the small but annoying bugs you mentioned.
Thanks once again, keep looking out for an update :D

Hi @Akhil99,
I was using v2. Earlier I had also used v1 but it was not stable. I mentioned that I wanted to disable floating windows because features like floating windows and pip mode eats a lot of ram and I was running out of free ram on this rom. I wanted to disable it in rom not in settings but there is no guide available online for this, only thing I could find was to change the OS version to 'android go' which I did not want. Hopefully you can make a rom with unlocked bootloader and probably with swappable ram support.
One more thing I found that camera of this rom was better than original rom.

Hi chiraganeja.
So RAM is the issue for people like us who have 3GB variant.
So, FIMCIS2 camera in this ROM as you said is very good, even better than stock ROM.
As for RAM, we can add 1gb RAM like the new RAMPlus feature but I need to check whether OneUI 3 supports it.
OneUI 4 sure supports it, but we need more time.

Hello there!
I must give you congratulations for the good work. I'm on it right now.
My only question: what about Secure Folder app? Is it available or will it be on V3, at least? I really miss that so much. Any possible date for V3?

Hi, I understand your excitement. Secure Folder will be available in V3. As for V3 date, I am not sure. I am using my M30 as main device. I hope I can make V3 in a month hopefully.

Waiting and counting the days for it!!!! Thank you a lot! I was just about leaving M30 cuz I really feel Secure Folder missing. It's the only way I can put certain apps to work.

Hi there again!
Couple days using it and three issues noticed:
1- As already said above, the ROM is REALLY resource hungry (and I'm using 4GB version), specially for RAM and Battery. Even my old A20 with 4000mAh holds longer.

2- Torchlight crashes out the system if you change intensity level. You're not able to shut it down after that and must restart phone to do so (the option get disabled but the light goes on unless you reboot).

3- Adaptive Brightness not working. When enabled, it just fixes the meter in an specific point and doesn't move anymore, no matter how much or less the ambient light is changed.

That said, I'm not going to uninstall it cuz, although that, it is amazing and the issues can be worked around (it's annoying but tolerable while waiting for V3). Turbo is faster but Android 11 is really awesome. Thank you again for the really good work!

    Big Thanks to @Astrako for encouragement, timely advice & kind words.

    My friend in this endeavour since the beginning @el0xren for his fixes and mods and tolerating my spam. I would not know what I would do without you buddy.

    This is ROM was made in heavy collaboration with @VDavid003 who shared with me his knowledge and technical support. I consider him a heavy contributor. Thanks for your help bro!

    Huge thanks for your kitchen chief! This would've taken wayy longer without your wonderful kitchen


    Myself for bringing you this A40s Port ROM for the M30 & Samsung for their sources :D.

    This is the OneUI 3.1 full port from the Samsung Galaxy A40s to Samsung Galaxy M30.

    What's SO special about this compared to A40 R port?

    Samsung Galaxy A40s is a rebranded Galaxy M30 sold only in China and Taiwan
    A40s was released with Pie while M30 released with Oreo.
    This meant that M30 stuck on Q with pathetic OneUI Core 2.0
    while the A40s got OneUI 3.1 (not core)
    Research revealed that the devices are identical in every way except the display panel and battery capacity
    This gave us a port candidate with all features working!!!!!!
    We fixed Camera by comparing and rewriting the Device Tree Source, Porting FIMCIS2 Driver and the CAMERA HAL, so basically a full camera stack port was involved!

    The result is a flawlessly working Camera!

    We have fixed Samsung Camera on R ports!
    This took a lot of effort and hardwork from me and @VDavid003

    I will shortly post source to github for everyone to refer.
    HIT THE THANKS BUTTON TO KEEP US MOTIVATED!

    BUGS:
    YOU TELL US!
    EVERY HARDWARE FEATURE WORKS!

    IN FACT SOME HARDWARE FEATURES WERE ADDED DUE TO NEW SENSOR HALS AND MUCH MORE!
    THIS IS AN A to Z port of A40s to M30!
    PLEASE LET US KNOW IF THERE IS AN ISSUE WE MIGHT HAVE NOT COME ACROSS
