There is one UI 3.1, how do I install recovery now, the phone is completely stock, can you help? And does under-screen fingerprint work?


May 22, 2018
It can be either on a microSD card, a pendrive through OTG adapter, or applied directly over usb from a PC
After flashing the recovery, I entered the recovery mode, did the factory data, no matter how hard I tried, the phone was opened to enter the recovery mode, then I flashed the recovery again, this time I can not enter the recovery mode to make factory data

Keep in mind that in order to get into recovery mode, you need to hold vol+ and power while the phone is plugged into the PC. Of course, after wiping the phone, you need to flash a new OS, since without an OS it will just boot to recovery. The install guide covers the rom installation. Easiest way is to just copy the rom onto a microSD card and select it in apply update menu in recovery.

Thank you. I installed the rom. It is much more fluent and faster than One UI 3.1, I think battery usage is also better.I want to use the Samsung gallery application, I like it very much, where can I find it. It does not work when I download and install the normal apks.

Installed this with ease. Runs a hell lot smoother and snappier than the stock firmware. You think that the option to use the ultra wide cam sensor would be possible in future builds? Always wondered as its only been just the main and the front options for when i use the camera even in 3rd party apps.

The rom is very fluent, battery usage is good compared to one ui 3.1 version. But something confused me, is there a problem with the adaptive brightness setting, and is the maximum brightness one click less compared to the stock rom?

Just noticed the 13/5 update with the screen off FOD and it works way better than stock ever did. Very nice.

    Will they update to Android 14?
    You'll certainly hear in time when the developer is ready and was able to devote his time for something you're able to receive for free. The developer doesn't owe you anything and you aren't his custtomer. Just be patient!

    New build is out, fixing the Camera app bug which would produce pictures that are way too big in size.
    Thanks for your work rtd you are a god of optimizing codes .

    In this rom i notices about 4 bugs on the last version

    Auto brightness - brightness bar
    2 diff scenario
    1- auto brightness its kinda glitchy when i activate it on the on it start to increase about 4% and decrease in every 10 sec in a min at the same position but its not always like that

    2nd one brightness bar sometimes when i change it . It doesnt responds it in full brightness by default even if i make it 0%

    When screen is off and mobile data off and wifi

    Every 1 hour it decrease 1% or 2 of battery without doing anything while sleeping

    On stock wasnt change that much every 2 or 3 hours about 1 %

    google assistance are not working on lock screen i dont know why but i tried every option even when its on for entering pass or fingerprint
    ; Should unlock the pass in order to listen to me


    The gdialer app are not saving the recorded calls in records files but the app itself says it has a record data and i can delete them all
    I search for data/ google.dialer the file it keeps loading without opening

    Suggestion please for more options im not asking alot but i know you can do it bro 🫡

    1- would you please put an Themes option for quick settings

    2- changing lock screen widget its always default i guess.

    .thank for you work again 😊

    3- always on display 1 tap to show for 10 second like stock - coz i have to press the finger print to wake it up or unlock the phone with the button

    4- double tap on empty wallpaper to lock the device
    Maybe you have some glitches in your adaptive brightness curve, reset can help:

    **Reset adaptive brightness.** Go to **Settings > Apps > See all apps > Device Health Services > Storage & cache > Manage space > Reset adaptive brightness**.

    (For me, de default brightness settings works quite nice ☺️) Since the last update I do not use the app Velis Auto Brightness anymore, but you can see with this app if you have a glitchy or smooth brightness curve.

    For suggestion 4: Display -> tap to sleep? (Double tap in statusbar)
    For suggestion 4: Display -> tap to sleep? (Double tap in statusbar)
    Thank you bro.

    Ik there is in status bar but when it comes to use one hand double tap on empty space like the stock does make it much easier . That is the point . Ik mean we are all using custom rom to make it easier to use . And thanks for rtd hard work on each rom he made alot of progress ❤️
    I'm stuck here even I have the OEM unlocked already.

    If your phone is unlocked the right way (see below), connect your phone to the computer and run in cmd: adb reboot bootloader

    Continue with step 2 of the installation guide.

    (Step 5, I prefer adb sideload <rom-file>)

    Unlocking bootloader (follow all steps):
    Make sure that you completely unlock the bootloader (also in downloading mode) (manual from Haky86)
    • Go to Settings.
    • Tab on Connections.
    • Select your WiFi connection, then insert the password (otherwise OEM unlocking option won't appear).
    • Tab to About phone.
    • Then tab on Software information.
    • Tab many times on Build number, untill you see “Developer mode has been enabled“ appears on your screen.
    • Now back to the main Settings page, then click on Developer options.
    • You should able to see the OEM unlocking option, if it is gray enable it.
    • Reboot the device into downloading mode by Volume Up + Volume Down + Power + connect the device into the USB port.
    • Choose Volume up long press: Device unlock mode.
    • Press on Volume up Unlock bootloaedr (may avoid warranty) option.
    • Reboot the device, and check the OEM unlocking option again :).
    • Congrats, your bootloader has been unlocked.
    I hope this helps.

    Pixel Experience 13 Plus for Galaxy A70

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    What is this?
    PixelExperience is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animation)

    Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

    Based on Android 13
    What is working:
    - WiFi
    - DualSIM, including calls on both sims
    - Bluetooth
    - NFC
    - Camera
    - Sound
    - GPS
    - Fingerprint scanner/Face unlock
    - Sensors
    - SD cards
    - Double tap to wake
    - Data encryption
    - SELinux enforcing
    - SafetyNet
    - Sound in calls (since that requires clarifying now..)
    - Most other basic stuff

    Known issues:
    - VoLTE/VoWiFi, of course :)

    Installation guide:

    1. Recommended Samsung firmware version is A705FNXXU5DVK6, but it will work on slightly older versions too.​

    Make sure that the bootloader is unlocked.​


    2. Boot the phone into download mode. Flash Pixel Experience recovery through AP button in Odin.​

    Download here.

    Note: TWRP will not work! It does not support new A13 roms with the latest changes.
    Use PE recovery for the best experience, otherwise don't complain if your phone bootloops.

    3. Boot into recovery (Vol+ and Power while USB is plugged into PC)​

    Note: Samsung's OneUI wipes the custom recovery partition and possibly vbmeta while booting so try not to reboot into Android.

    4. Format data and system in the recovery​


    5. Flash the rom in "Apply update" menu.​

    There are 2 ways to install:
    • On the phone: Copy the zip to a FAT32-formatted microSD card and install it in recovery.
    • With a PC: Use Minimal ADB on Windows. Open "cmd-here" and type
      adb sideload <rom-file>
      where <rom-file> is the filename (drag-and-drop the zip file into cmd window).

    6. (Optional) If you want superuser access, flash Magisk in the same way that you flashed the rom.​

    We now have a working ramdisk so newest Magisk works fine ^^

    7. Reboot and enjoy :)


    (Update recovery and clean flash if coming from 2023.01.04!)

    ROM: 2023.09.22

    Recovery: 2023.06.18

    OS version: Android 13
    Linux version: 4.14.190
    Recommended firmware: A705FNXXU5DVK6
    Build date: 22/09/2023
    Status update: the new update is ready, with long awaited FOD dimming, night light FOD, corrected vibration intensity, bluetooth voip calls support, and some rom-side fixes too like Safetynet/Play Integrity + fixed first time setup crash. Unfortunately, my ISP is currently having some trouble and upload speeds are horribly low, so I can't actually upload the build! :ROFLMAO:

    I'll update the trees on git soon in case someone would want to build from source, otherwise just be patient.

    @eniothecheesy reflash vbmeta and PE recovery, then try again.
    New build with August security patch is now available, changes can be found below:
    I don't have any time to work on the phone lately but I'll at least push a small update fixing safetynet sometime soon.
    May update is out:
