For any S20+ 5G users, i have updated my AIO zips that can be flashed in USERDATA when flashing stock ROM (before flashing BeyondROM to install TWRP, Decrypt /data, and additionally (file 1: patch Bluetooth and patch bootlogo )) to include the latest twrp-3.7.0_11-0-y2s recovery. The AIO makes flashing stock ROM easy and hands off until the setup wizard....

As i always clean flash BeyondROM (meaning i flash latest monthly stock ROM beforehand), i figured id share these here for anyone else who does to, as if youre doing this month to month, it will save time, and your sanity

Again, the shared files are specifically for the S20+ 5G, only use on this device

The AIO files are in 2 versions

file 1: AIO_SM-G986B.tar
- installs TWRP
- boots to TWRP immediately after ODIN completes (leave Auto Reboot enabled) - avoiding the vulcan death grip button push nonsense
- formats data
- installs decrypter and stock recovery replacement disabler (by @serajr from here - kindly created when the long running multidisabler stopped working as Samsung changed a path)
- installs TWRP Bootlogo Patcher from here to remove the ugly warning on boot
- installs Bluetooth Patcher (TWRP method) from here
- wipes /cache
- reboots to system and setup

file 2: AIO_SM-G986B (TWRP & Decrypt ONLY).tar
- installs TWRP
- boots to TWRP immediately after ODIN completes (leave Auto Reboot enabled) - avoiding the vulcan death grip button push nonsense
- formats data
- installs decrypter and stock recovery replacement disabler (by @serajr from here - kindly created when the long running multidisabler stopped working as Samsung changed a path)
- wipes /cache
- reboots to system and setup

Files (and original thread where method is shown) are here:


What about other devices?

Using the original (other) device files from the 1st post, and the workingfiles.zip and info from my post, other devices can make use of the same method

Can Netflix be installed from Play Store? I'm on BR 4.8 and Play Store doesn't find Netflix app (and if I use direct link I get a message that the device is unsupported).
No problem here with Universal Safety Net fix and Shamiko:

View attachment 5739699

Yup need to pass SafetyNet and its successor Integrity Check to get Google Play Store to certify

Links for others:

Integrity Check (you will want to have a copy of this going forward):


Magisk main thread - includes links for addons like Shamiko (mid page) - make sure Enforce Deny List is NOT enabled if using Shamiko


Universal SafetyNet Fix (Displax MOD): v1 is good enough, MOD v2 was created to address A13 issues, i havent tested it yet on A12


After installing Universal SafetyNet Fix and Shamiko, you will often need to clear data for Google Play Service and Google Play Store (i usually put device in airplane mode for this) and reboot (toggling airplane mode back off after reboot if needed). This will certify Google Play Store, and often solve the other issue most people have..non-working Google Pay/Wallet

Hey, im a flashaholic to flash devices.. but i was a few years out from the com... so i have a question..
if i flash only the custom rom without root acces, then i should have normal enter into banking apps or not?

@starbucks2010 have missed your rom haha, was with my s10+ a fan and had created the bootsplash a few years ago

normally yes, but lately, the bank apps check for many things related to tampering with the device and if they find something suspicious the app won't work.

You cannot use banking apps with unlocked bootloader unless you install safetynet-fix

Correct yes safetynet + zygisk denylist, a lot of banking apps are working. Only Samsung pay is broken (because knox detect root)

What has to do the s9 with s20? They are 2 different devices with 2 different sw/fw
You think someone else can test all banks apps in the world and tell you if they work or not?

    As I mentioned in OP, remove your actual magisk app, reboot and install magisk alpha I shared in OP as a regular app.

    I shared in OP the magisk alpha 25205. Please try to install that version then update through magisk app to latest version.
    Don't forget to uninstall your actual magisk app and reboot before installing magisk alpha.

    Official TWRP thread for S20 Series



    Installation procedure

    IS MANDATORY TO BE ON ANDROID 13 FW BEFORE FLASHING BR 52 !!!

    Dirty flash of BR 5.2 over any Android 12 BR will brick your device !!!

    0) Backup ALL your important files to PC, ext drives, etc

    1) Download and copy the latest BR ROM zip into your external storage or USB stick if you're on stock fw encrypted

    2) Download GWA7 stock FW for your phone model using Frija or Samfw and unpack it on your PC

    3) Boot in download mode (Vol Up + Vol Down + plug the USB cable connected already to PC) and load up Odin on PC
    Don't use USB adapters otherwise you might get issues flashing FW in Odin
    Turn off Auto Reboot in Odin

    4) Select files BL, AP, CP & HOME_CSC (keep data)
    **do not start flash yet

    5) Download latest compatible TWRP for your specific device from the official TWRP xda thread (link above), rename it to recovery.img. Download the patched vbmeta.img file from below. Using 7Zip app add the 2 files (recovery.img and vbmeta.img) into a .tar file.

    6) Add the above twrp + vbmeta patched.tar file into the USERDATA slot in Odin

    7) Uncheck the auto reboot option in Odin and start the flashing

    8) When flashing completes (keep usb plugged in !!!), hold Vol Down + Power buttons and then as soon as the screen goes black hold Vol Up + Power buttons to boot to recovery
    *be warned first time you boot into recovery it will initialize and then reboot so just keep the buttons Vol Up + Power buttons pressed longer
    **if you boot in stock FW, your data will be encrypted and you'll need to wipe your data before flashing BR 3.x

    9) When boot in TWRP, wipe your data if you're encrypted, flash BR 5.x zip and then reboot to system

    10) After the first boot, install Magisk Manager if necessary; when you'll start Magisk Manager for the first time, reply with YES (agree to reboot) after MM have setup your root environment
    *after reboot, go to Magisk Manager settings and toggle On Zygisk

    10) Enjoy....


    1. Backup to PC all your important files: documents, pictures, contacts, SMS, etc. BEFORE starting to flash anything
    2. If you have issues booting the ROM, try the clean flash
    3. To boot into TWRP you need to use a USB cable connected to PC (same for DL mode) or a USB stick
    4. If you like my work, consider buying me a coffee (PayPal link)
