Another question after I just got the most recent version installed (super easy to do a clean install with Migrate), is anyone able to get Locast to work?

I have Magisk hide working to play both Sling and Netflix, but Locast refuses. The white loading screen pops up, the loading wheel moves, the screen auto-rotates back then forth on its own, before finally returning to the guide screen.

Problem with WPA2/WPA3 transition mode Wifi network

Config:
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • ROM: "ProjectSakura-5.2-VANILLA-20210809-1706-dreamlte-OFFICIAL.zip"
  • GApp: "open_gapps-arm64-11.0-nano-20210811.zip"
I cannot connect my Samsung Galaxy S8 on a WPA2/WPA3 transition mode Wifi network.
Is anyone having the problem?

It works fine on a WPA2 -AES wifi network but not on a WPA2/WPA3.
When I used to have the stock ROM, I did not have the problem.

Oh boy. It's been a while. I just bought a T-Mobile S8+ and I really want to install a super stable rom on it. From my short research and now layman knowledge since last time I messed with roms, it seems Sakura is a good rom. Only thing is I have a Mac. Can I install roms using a mac, particularly this one?

Also isn't there a Sakura 5.2 now, is that the go to or what is a known stable every day rom? My primary phone is an iPhone 12 Pro but I bought an Android to play around with again and to have a backup phone. Sorry if these are dumb questions. Back after 10 years!

Unfortunately you can't install a custom rom on a North American variant. The models with Exynos processors (European, Middle Eastern and Asian devices) have easily unlockable bootloaders unlike the NAFTA devices which means these custom roms can only be installed on the Exynos models.

Yeah you're right.. after a whole night of trying, I gave up on the OEM Unlocking button being missing. Tried all tutorials, all combinations, what seems like a million reboots. So there's no one that's rooted a NA S8+ huh? (snapdragon variant) man i've never heard of that. Go figure the very phone I choose to get back into the Android modding scene is the one phone that doesn't work. =/ Are the Galaxy S9 and S10 the same way?

I want a modern S8+ or S10+ or Note 8 to install a custom ROM on. It seems like I need an Exynos version of all the above? I don't get how are people modding their galaxies. Is everyone just buying Exynos (international) versions from overseas? I didn't know installing roms on one of the more popular Android phones such as the Galaxy was that out of reach... is this a new thing in 2021? Do people just use the standard OS with all the bloatware nowadays?

Unfortunately, yes. This is a thing. Samsung has blocked the bootloaders of the Snapdragon versions for some reason. There are very limited options just to have root access and that will also trip a safety mechanism in the phone that will limit the maximum battery charge to 80%. At least this happens in the 8 family, can't tell anything about the others.

After trying for months of I was finally able to install the stock rom again.

Pros in Sakura:
  • App level security. Allow permission to each session as it's on Android 11

Cons (generally installing a custom rom):
  • The phone was so slow If I am not being patient most of the time it gets stuck and crashes.
  • Camera takes ages to open. It mostly get stuck.
  • Android auto doesn't work.
  • None of bank apps work. Even when I try with Magisk.
  • Iris scanner is not functional.
  • Free call recordings option in One UI is gone here. Has to pay for 3rd party call recording apps in Magisk for Sakura.
  • Chrome cast doesn't work.

Bug already reported. The headset does not work. When the headset is inserted, the sound always comes from the speaker of the teleno. It all works with Bluetooth y earphone. Will this be fixed in the next update? Thanks in advance.

I did a fresh install last night. I'm removing it today, 16h later. It's quite buggy, crashes and slows down frequently. When I reboot it gets stuck in the almond tree picture with no icons or options on it. I have to click on the on the on/off button twice to make the unlock keyboard appear. And idk if it's related with this ROM but Whatsapp gets stuck when trying to upload a backup.
It still needs some refinements.

Audio out from 3.5mm jack works. USB C earphones are not supported on this ROM.

This is not normal. You have installed something else and it is causing issues.

Hello, I didn't fail to notice that in this Custom rom my S8 heats up a lot and very fast, besides the battery life is not the best, could I fix this without affecting the performance in the next update?

    How likely is it that the hotspot will be fixed at some point? Kinda of a dealbreaker in general...
    I second this, I'd be installing right now but I use hotspot on a daily basis. I'll be keeping an eye.
