Do you know why sometimes the phone shuts down automatically after the power is exhausted, and then the phone turns off after charging for about 10 seconds?After the screen is automatically turned off, the phone cannot turn on the screen again, but it enters recovery normally (the screen will not be turned off automatically), the firmware is: hvj5
My English is not good, the problem is shown in the video. The screen can be touched, but not displayed

Samsung Galaxy S10
I thought I changed my device name everywhere and I turned off 'pixel device name spoofing', since I don't want it. Most places the device name shows Galaxy S10, but when I for example share my webpage in Chrome to another device, it always says it's coming from my pixel 5 device instead of Galaxy S10. Where can I change it!? Build.prop is right, changed global device_name. Cleared chrome, google play store and google framework cache and settings. Still no result.

You write
"Dynamic encryption removed for the time being".

What does that mean? Is this ROM now encrypted or not encrypted or will that change again? Then a clean flash would be necessary and the data would be lost?

I can't find any information about GApps in the instructions.
Are GApps included?
If not, which ones are recommended?

    Hey guys just waiting on march update then I will release again thanks!
    I'm glad bro, I will update as soon as march is released, then u can update with OTA as long as your using my latest build to date 😁
    @FreeRunner2017 awesome ROM. I'm curently using it as daily driver on S10e, so far I had no problem and all works flawless, anyway I found the following bugs:

    • Wallpaper and style it's broken, I'm stuck with the default colours (I think, I'm not sure. It's horrible anyway 🤣) and there is no way to change them. Even if I select another colour it, it keep staying on that light blue.
    • On block screen and during power on there is a lonely led that goes crazy, blinking at full power on white colour. It disappears if you unlock the phone. Just to be sure I made a screen record and the problem it's not present in it, it seems harware related, but still, it's strange.
      EDIT: LOL I just found out it's not a bug, it's a feature.🤣
    • The rom reads ext4 sd cards (formatted from twrp), but app fails to write on it. I formatted the sd card from rom and now that is exfat I have no problems.
    • This one happened fixed itself, so I wasn't able to reproduce it.
      I was listening music with bt and when I made a screenshot music passed from headphone to speaker for a couple sec and then switched back.

    Currently using HWB1 firmware.
    Does anyone know if I can update using this instead of the official one?

    I really don't have the time to do a clean install from scratch so I am looking for a simple upgrade path from the "official" crdroid to a Rom that gets regular updates.

    Thanks for all your work with this and keeping the S10 alive! Love crdroid.


    I don't know if I need to install something differently or format the system data :(

    NOTICE: The following wall of text lists the steps to unbrick / update your galaxy S10 (SM-G973F) phone. If you have another model, this will probably not work for you.

    FreeRunner2017, the creator of this rom, was kind enough to guide me step by step with most of this procedure, so now I´m leaving this on this thread to help out the rest of you!

    I am assuming you have a bricked phone ( no boot or bootloop ). If your phone is not bricked just skip to Step 3.

    Let´s do this...

    No matter what you do to your galaxy S10 (SM-G973F) phone, if it ends up bricked, remember to start the phone in download ( bootloader mode ) in the following way:

    Phone must be powered off

    Press Vol down + bixby at the same time and then plug in a USB-C cable connected to a Windows PC which has the latest samsung USB drivers installed.

    You will be greeted by the light blue samsung download mode screen. If you have Odin opened up on your PC, you will notice that odin will report:

    <ID:0/003> Added!!

    If you don´t know what Odin is, then you need to google Odin for samsung, brush up on what it is, download it and then keep going with this wall of text.

    1. Find the stock samsung android files on the internet which are appropriate to your model, country and carrier. Google search:

    galaxy s10 SM-G973F android 12 stock rom

    I ended up finding mine at:

    It will take you some time to find the apropriate stock rom download link if you choose to use this link. There are thousands of stock roms on that website. If you are patient, you will find the right one for your phone. They are organized by country. you need to find the right carrier for the country as well.

    Once you find the right one, download it to your computer.

    2. Use odin to completely flash the stock samsung android appropriate for your phone. If the first one you download doesn´t work. Don´t despair. Get an older version or get a newer version and try again.

    Unzip the file you downloaded and load the unzipped files to their corresponding section:

    CSC ( use the CSC_OWA_.... file in this section instead of the HOME_CSC_OWA file since you most likely already bricked your phone )

    Press start in odin and wait for about 5 minutes for it to be done.

    If the process takes longer than 5 minutes and odin seems to be stuck on one file, check the bootloader screen on the phone for red text lines. If you find some line which reads something like:

    rev. check fail device: 16 binary:9 (DTB)

    it means you downloaded a wrong version of android for your current situation.

    the device parameter displays the currently installed firmware and the binary parameter displays the version you are trying to install.

    Search the internet again, download a newer/older version and try again.

    3. Once you successfully flashed the samsung stock rom, rebooted and are at the android start screen, try to skip most of the options the phone wants you to configure so that you end up with a semi working phone.

    Re-enable USB debugging, reauthorize your phone on your computer, power off the phone.

    This model of S10 has an SD card slot. Transfer the following files to an SD card and install the card on the phone. You don´t have to use a brand new card. You can use the card which you were using previously with your phone. TWRP won´t touch it.

    I will attach some files to this post and links to other files since some of them are not linked to the Author´s original post. These files will work for the galaxy S10 (SM-G973F) AKA beyond1lte. You will probably mess your phone even further if you use these files with another model

    Copy the following files to the root of the SD card or create a new folder and copy the files to it. Just remember the name you gave to the folder. Insert the SD card to the phone :

    vbmeta.tar ( attached to this post. provided by author )

    twrp-3.7.0_9-1-beyond1lte.img.tar ( twrp recovery ) Link to download from Author´s post

    crDroidAndroid-13.0-xxxxxxxx.zip (crdroid rom) Link to download from Author´s post

    NikGapps (google apps) Get the full version if you want to be able to restore from your google backup during initial setup. LINK to download provided by author

    app-release.apk (magisk delta) Link to download from Author´s post

    safetynetfix-x.x.x-zygisk-mod.zip ( magisk module for passing safetynet checks. The file is attached to this post. provided by author. )

    LSPosed-v1.8.5-6656-zygisk-release.zip ( magisk module for passing safetynet checks. The file is attached to this post. provided by author. )

    REMEMBER TO re-enable USB debugging, reauthorize your phone on your computer, power off the phone.

    4. Restart the phone in download ( bootloader ) mode. Once you´re back at the light blue screen, we are now ready to begin installing CRdroid V9.

    5. Open odin, make sure you get a:

    <ID:0/003> Added!!

    6. Load the TWRP.tar file in the AP tab.

    Load the vbmeta.tar file in the CP tab.

    7. Before you press start on Odin, grab your phone and be ready to press:

    vol up + bixby + power

    as soon as you click start on odin.

    this button sequence will force the phone to boot straight into TWRP recovery after flashing and before odin sends the command to reboot the phone.

    8. When twrp recovery loads, the first thing you must do is tap on wipe - tap Format Data - swipe to factory reset.

    VERY IMPORTANT: Once data is formatted, tap the back button until you get to the main menu. Tap reboot, then tap recovery in order to boot back into twrp recovery again.

    9. Then go to the install menu and and load from the SD card:

    crDroidAndroid-13.0-xxxxxxxx.zip (crdroid rom)

    NikGapps-stock-arm64-13-20220827-signed.zip (google apps)

    app-release.apk (magisk delta)

    Go ahead and flash.

    The install will take a couple of minutes. Once it´s done, wipe cache and reboot to system.

    CrDroid will boot for the first time and it will ask you to set up the phone.

    10. Once the phone is set up, go to the app drawer, select the files app, navigate to the SD card and tap on the:

    app-release.apk (magisk delta)

    file you copied to the SD card in step 3. Yes, you installed this during the twrp flash, but you need to do it again.

    Magisk will install and you will have to reboot.

    11. OPTIONAL. If safety net is important to you, open magisk, tap the modules icon on the bottom right. Tap the:

    Install from storage icon and install from the sd card:



    go back to the same modules icon in magisk and install:



    Go back to magisk and on the front screen tap on the gear icon on the top right.

    On that screen, set everything as the following screen shots:




    12. Just to make sure you have done everything correctly, got to the play store and install the app:

    SafetyNet test

    If you pass the test, you are ready to rock your new CrDroid V9 Android 13 phone.

    13. If you like to use Gcam as your phone camera. I found one that works well with the S10 (SM-G973F) and this ROM:

    get this one:



    Shout out to FreeRunner ( the author of this ROM ) for guiding me step by step to sort out my lack of knowledge without expecting anything in return. He is one cool dude.
