  • GPS
  • NFC

What's not working:

How to update builds?

  • Flash only the rom.zip and it will automatically reinstall your gapps, magisk etc
  • use /system/addon.d if you would like to keep system mods after an update

Are you aware of a method to dual boot this rom alongside samsung's stock firmware?

No, i haven't tried myself but i think i saw something about dual boot for s9 somewhere so should be easy to port over.
This is my daily driver now, dont think i will be using stock firmware again as this has everything i need.
Also if you dualboot alongside stock firmware im sure there will be a vendor mismatch problem.
ARK2 is what it is based on, any other vendors will either not boot at all or will break the cameras.

The reason why I want to dual boot is to not lose my data which is work related (some apps cant be simply reinstalled), but i really want to install your ROM!
Ill take a look and see if there is a way!

Battery life for me is very similar compared to stock, but my phone feels much faster, benchmarks score around the same only slightly higher.
If you are unrooted i don't think there is a safe way to backup your app data.

Interesting .. Is HWC fixed now? :confused:

Nvm just saw your comment on HWC. Hopefully 16 comes sooner then later. Thanks for taking your time to release some new updated Asop goods. :cowboy:

Hell yes !! Thanks to the dev to make it possible ! Just a few questions about the spen before flashing that masterpiece

Are the spen and its features fully compatible with the rom just like the stock one or will I need to do some manipulations to get it ? And how about the spen smoothness in general ?

Thanks in advance

The Spen works well and will act like a mouse like it does in all aosp roms, it works to hover it over the screen and sensitivity is good, but the button won't work.

Yeah I understand what you mean. Not gonna lie that a bit frustrating. I'm a daily user of the Spen and that's way I was asking for it. I mean almost all its features are there excepting that button.. Anyway I will probably flash that one but do you know if it would be possible to make that button work in the future ?

I highly doubt AOSP will support the bluetooth button charging etc, as it's a samsung specific thing

for the S-Pen, I have been using AOSP rom 8.1

if you love AOSP and have a good reason to flash it, then it is possible to gain back some of the spen features in AOSP, not as smooth as in Sammy's Roms but ok, I posted what i did here, there is even a video showing what I did. it involves root, and xposed, (now ed exposed)

as for the spen bluetooth capability, the Spen is still active and recharges by itself. if you download nRF connect or lightblue apps from playstore, once you click the button you can see the pen as a bluetooth device SPEN (0D27) ZK, through these apps you can even subscribe to the service and get notifications when the button is pressed, so techinically speaking if someone has app development knowledge this can be done easily. to my limited knowledge I documented what I have discovered here

I have suggested to nRF connect App devs if they can have a tasker plugin so we upon a spen button click we can use tasker to make different actions, they reacted positively, the dev mentioned that they might work on it but might take some time since they are short resourced. but been some time since.

I did a funny workaround once, they keep the log in data/data/no.nordicsemi.android.log/databases, so when that file changes you can read the line change and read the button event, and trigger a tasker action.

its doable, just needs a proper dev that works on it. an AOSP spen remote, or even a custom BLE notification tasker plugin if he wants to make it universal and target alot of devices such as smartwatches..

last note: if the spen works funny in landscape, there is a post in the same thread showing how to fix it.
@Synt4x.93 I will flash this rom today.. Thank you for the awesome work..

    New build is live now.

    Changelog (check github) -
    • April security patch
    • Fast charge now showing on lockscreen
    • Lowered vibration intensity (too strong before)
    • cts passes by default now. (using the same s9+ fp from magiskhideprops, tried many n9 fp's and none of them seemed to work) remove the module that you where using to patch it before you upgrade to the new build.
