this is definitely not clear...
I already said this on another thread and you clearly aren't understanding, this shows the forum it is part of and given a3/a5/a7 all share the same forum, it shows up like that. Given that both the rom title and description say a5 and a7 and DO NOT mention a3, then I think it's pretty clear that the rom doesn't support a3

hi dear developers, wil be an update? This rom was the best but if a new update came. smsh still. :) thanks again.
Can anyone help me with this?
The Playstore shows that this rom does not pass playsafe certification. Is there any way to fix this? So far i have tried registering the GSF code on Google's website made for this matter, which didn't fix the issue. Any solution (including magisk) would be appreciated!

    I am 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 features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    Some personal thoughts:
    - you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation;
    - press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
    - feel free to send me some coffee (which btw, runs out pretty quick), via paypal, if you want to support my work;
    - if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

    Personal notes:
    • Make sure you backup everything before flashing, things might not work as expected.
    • Don't flash any other kernel lower than v2.3, it will brick some things.
    • Old registred fingerprints won't work, first delete them all, reboot and re-register your fingerprints. This might fail few times, try until you succeed or do a clean flash and it will get fixed.
    • Special thanks goes to JEFFK who decided to help us by providing A720S Beta 1 dump, and of course, to Samsung Korea for not letting A720S die.
