My phone is not recognized by the PC when I'm in TWRP so I can't copy the zip file to the phone. ADB doesn't work either.

I don't have one.. how come I'm the only one with that problem though
You're not the only one. I had the same issue and just ended up buying an OTG cable. Then, I had a message that the ROM cannot be installed since you need to update from BWA2 version of the firmware and I had none after performing full data wipe. Eventually, I just flashed another ROM via Odin😂

You have to wipe data only when you come from full stock to eliminate the encryption. For updating br you can use home_csc when you flash stock to keep your apps data. Have you read the guide from the OP?

Does spam caller ID built in and call recorder both work?

But that's just userdata, right? the OS should be intact. Have you updated to BWA2 before for sure?

You should have made sure you're on BWA2 because that seems to be the problem. That latest update in your region isn't necessarily the latest available firmware.

I've ordered an OTG adapter in case I'll get stuck in TWRP in the future again.

    BR3.1 has been updated to the latest CWBE FW March 2023 patch level.

    Happy flashing good people ! :)
    @tschertel In short: there are two scenarios - 1st if you want to install BeyondROM being on stock ROM and 2nd if you want to upgrade from one BR version to the next version (for instance from BR 2.3 to BR 3.0)
    Both are in details explained on first page of this thread how to proceed in sections: "Spoiler: Coming from full stock" and "Spoiler: Updating BeyondROM to latest version"
    Just follow them.
    probably you don't know what the first bullet "Download the latest/required version of the firmware (Samfirm, Frija etc...)" means too.
    Fair enough. Good point.
    At least now, people who had the same doubt, have some starting point to read.
    Maybe this will help someone to avoid a factory reset when doing an update:
    I was not able to boot into TWRP from download mode...
    Root cause was:
    I don't know why but apparently I'm the only one who was facing this issue.
    force close playstore and wipe play store data
    if needed do it twice
    should work, give some time
    Exactly! Wiped it twice, and eventually it worked.
    e já agora, <3 o SCP.

    How exactly did you achieve the rw? Can you please give me step by step tutorial? Thanks (y)

    So are you trying to tell me that I've been basically wasting my time by doing 1 on 1 customer support in private with you for over 12 pages since July trying to get my rw script to work for all Samsung devices? :unsure:
    I am a little bit disappointed. I was honestly expecting more high quality feedback and a little bit more enthousiasm from you as well as a little bit more honesty. :(
    You could've told me back in July that you cannot or do not want to help me make my rw script to work on ALL devices out there but you only want to make YOUR device rw... Isn't that a little bit egoistic on your part? :unsure:
    Speaking of honesty. Didn't you tell me the other day that you're not a developer yet here you are publishing a ROM that's fully rw in a thread with a [DEVELOPMENT] tag... :unsure:

    What is dubious about my rom?
    I always had options to make my rom from many other sources: twrp backup after running afaneh rw script, offline manual creation of rw images but I chose to help you hoping to automate the rw image creation with your script.
    I had the willingness to help you making the script working over 12 pages of discussion as you say and countless tests but you never listen to my advises.
    Honestly, no point of washing our laundries in public.

    And this is the end of this topic from my point of view.

    Guys guys guys, is it really the best place to have such a discussion?

    I highly advise you to use the 13th page of your long discussion to clear things out. It's not like you're new to XDA ... 😉
