FAQ
Q: Will this work on A52s or A52 5G?
A: No, I included A52 4G specific vendor with hw libs. This will only work on A52 4G

Q: Will this work on A72 4G?
A: I have no clue. I've been told HW is very similar with a few lib exceptions but I honestly have no interest on supporting this device. Anyone else is free to try and flash and fix it for A72, you've got my support.

Q: How can I report a bug?
A: Try and be as detailed as possible on how you encountered the bug. If you can include a logcat then even better. The more information provided the more likely it is to get the bug fixed.




I don't do this for monetary compensation. I have fun making edits and personally using my own creations. I don't mind sharing my work for all to use.

are you sure dex and doblu atmos don't work and can it be fixed somehow manually?
I've read conflicting reports about DeX from my tester group. Some say wired works, others say it doesn't but also say that wireless works. I tested it personally and it didn't for me (wireless) so idk, probably won't be able to fix it in any case

As for dolby atmos, yeah I'm sure it doesn't work. I'll have to see if I can fix it as I haven't attempted it yet.

Excellent your work and your custom rom!! But I found some bugs. Face unlock does not work, the phone turns off and restarts. Samsung voice recorder when starting a recording everything is perfect but when saving the recording and playing it, it says not supported. For the rest everything excellent. We look forward to the next update and excellent work

    What does live blur exactly do? Never heard of it lol
    When you pull down the notification bar or access the shut down menu it gets a small transparency effect as well as get a blurred image of what is currently on your screen. On stock ROM, the blur is fixed and doesn't move or react to what's on screen. With live blur, it's a real time blurring of what's on screen. Samsung usually only includes live blur on their flagship devices and not on their A-series phones.
