It's on Sam mobile free.

Currently I'd stay where you are. Not sure about anyone else but currently Android 13 suffers from massive battery drain issues

Follow Starbucks2010's guide on how to on the first page to update to 4.8 and you should be able to easy enough.
Sam mobile will have the relevant (FVIB) android base needed for 4.8.
It should definitely be free on there.

Not a fan of lineage ROMs myself but there is one on here.. look below / similar threads bit

Edit: just to state, it's definitely android 13 itself causing the drain and not BR. That as always is brill.
Hopefully A13 will get better as it goes along.. and according to Google I'm not alone but hopefully it's not just me on here having issues with it lol

    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.

    AFAIK Samsung BL doesnt support downgrading from A13 to any lower

    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)
