    If someone can help me, install "LineageOS 18.1 for A52 4G" and now I want to go back to RayOS v2.0, but when installing no boot, it locks up and only goes to recovery. I have to reinstall LineageOS, can someone help me what will be the problem?
    In one place I see that they say install stock kernel, I don't know if that will be the problem, someone help me, thanks
    You gotta go back to full stock first through Odin, then repeat the process to install RayOS.

    RayOS v2.0 for Samsung Galaxy A52
    Pretty straight forward, I took OneUI 3.1 firmware, debloated it and added a few features. But I mean very FEW features. Samsung didn't really disable a lot of things on the A52, I'm actually impressed.
    I didn't really put a lot of effort into this, I don't think I'll keep it up to date because I am a very lazy person :) but who knows, stuff happens.

    I will include the stock kernel for the newest security patches in the thread, because Samsung obviously tinkers with it and may include some improvements brought by Samsung themselves. Doubt you'll see custom kernels based on it until Samsung releases the source code (which sometimes takes up to 2 weeks).

    Anyway, enjoy.

    * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about flashing this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. HARD!

    Sources!
    I decided to show my work so to speak on GitHub. You can see the list of all the apps I removed and all the lines that were added to camera and floating features. Feel free to take a look and make pull requests if you want me to add something on potential future releases.

    Bugs!

    Links!


    Prequisites
    • TWRP or OrangeFox for Android 11 installed
    • Being unencrypted (recommended)



    Instructions!
    • Add zip to either internal memory or SD card
    • Flash via custom recovery
    • Wait a few minutes, pay attention to the screen after 5 minutes, because it will ask you if you want to delete extra apps
    • (Recommended) Wipe data so you can begin with a clean installation
    • When installation is finished, just reboot to system
    • Total installation time can take up to 10 minutes
      • Extract RayOS ROM (in .xz format) with an unzip program and copy to internal or external SD card. (Warning: Do this step before even booting to custom recovery. This super img is about 6 GB of size and I believe custom recoveries have a size limit on files you can copy over MTP.)
      • Reboot to custom recovery
      • Install extracted ROM as "super" image in TWRP
      • Install stock kernel as boot (optional)
      • Reboot to Recovery
      • Format data if you are coming from Stock ROM.
      • Flash multidisabler (this is required always)
      • Flash Magisk v23.0+ zip or apk (required)
      • Reboot and wait patiently

    So uh... is anybody even using this besides me? LOL.
    I haven't updated it to latest security patch because well, there really isn't anything added other than "the security of your device has been improved".
    I think I'll wait until something significant gets added.
