This is a very good rom, and i am thankful to its developer but there is an issue, when i was using stock rom i used to change my debug level to mid to increase performance. But on this rom when i go to sysdump and change debug lvl to mid the phone automatically restarts gets off then again restarts, it never stops but leave a message behind which is there is some issue with kernel. I think this mid lvl debugging is not supported with this refined kernel so please please please i request to its developer to upload the same rom but with its stock kernel not this custom refined kernel. Hope u will help.❤

    When will the NFC variant battery drain problems be fixed?
    Samsung seems to be using newer stuff for NFC, and the issue seems to have been fixed on Android 11. :>

    Development has moved to Android 11-based builds. Fresh 1.3 is now deprecated.

    Wow, it has been over a month since I replied here. xD

    I (and the community as well!) has been busy in the background to bring Android 11-based Fresh 3, with new, amazing stuff alongside everything you have loved from Fresh 1.

    And it's launching tomorrow, May 3rd!​


    We have also opened the Fresh Community Discord server as well! :>

    Q: What bootloader does this need?
    A: It is strongly advised to install the One UI 3.1 update before installing Fresh 3, for the most stable experience. Installing on Android 10 will cause issues, and is not supported.

    Q: Do I need to flash anything after installing Fresh?
    A: There is no need! Fresh is already pre-patched. Simply flash all mods you need, as well as data recovery ZIPs (ie. data restore packages) and Reboot to System.

    Q: Does X feature work?

    A: Yes! Try it for yourself. 😉

    Q: How do I update my Fresh installation?
    A: It's very easy! Simply go to Settings, tap Software updates and update away. You can access it much faster using the Fresh Hub shortcut on your Apps screen!

    Q: Is my data safe with Fresh Hub?
    A: Yes. Fresh Hub does not collect any information except ping counts to the download server, facilitated by SourceForge.

    Q: I'm experiencing X bug on my Y device.
    A: Please report through this feedback form, or the Fresh Community on Discord or Telegram. Please include logs, screenshots, or screen recordings so I can help you better.
    i like your rom feature keep it fresh

    BEST custom Rom Thanks....I have been testing since the last update on my a50G .... and it works perfectly, the interface, the fluidity, I have not needed to restart the device is at 1000% without problems, The battery lasts even longer, The charge is faster, I don't know it heats up to nothing unless running a game with high requirements (genshic impac xd) ..... The only problem I have is the fingerprint and when I put dark mode sometimes while browsing (facebook) it usually changes its color from black to black less dark ..... (sy for my inglish xd)

      after i flash this rom my samsung account can't connect, a notif returns in a loop. how i can delete this ?
      I have flash fresh os 3.1.2, my kernel is refined kernel v2 and i have install the fresh os 3.1.3 update.
      Help me svp, sorry for my english, i'm french
      The kernel changes are causing this. Clear data for Samsung Account then sign in again.
      If you use ADB, run:
      adb shell pm clear com.osp.app.signin

      If you have a terminal directly on device (with root):
      su -c pm clear com.osp.app.signin
