Apart from specified bugs, everything else is working or unreported as a bug.

The Bug List has been updated with a Legend colour code system to help identify the status of bugs and updated status of the current ROM bugs.

Hi there, just a question, I tripped Knox back in 2020, would I be able to use Samsung Health and/or Secure Folder with this?

Just curious what "Disabled Knox" means, thanks!

Secure Folder is usable, there is a patched Samsung Health but it is not directly installed via this ROM due to the zip size, you will most likely find it in the main chat.

Thanks! Could you post some pictures of how the rom looks? I saw some screenshots from an user that I didn't like the skin off, he had his phone app open and it looked somehow cartoon-ish.

Cheers!

Is battery drain fixed in v1.2?
NO, this problem continues, the guilty is "Enhanced Processing" that silly function located in the advanced battery settings turns on by itself and even if you turn it off after a few minutes it turns on again, this fault is draining the battery, hopefully they correct it in a future version =(

You will have to resize your data partition, this will include a full internal wipe. This is a usual problem from flashing custom ROMs.

    NOTICE: The steps below will trip Knox & possibly void your Warranty, and following these steps will perform a mandatory data wipe due to Bootloader status changes, so please make sure you back up any/all of your important files somewhere else other than your phone's storage.

    STEP 1: UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER:


    1. Enable Developer Options, you can do this by going to Settings -> About Phone -> Software Information -> Tap "Build Number" 7 times and enter your phone's pin if prompted.
    2. Open Developer Options and enable the "Allow OEM Unlocking" option.
    3. Shut down your phone.
    4. Connect your phone to your PC or connect your headphones to boot into Download Mode with the combination (HOLD VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN)
    5. Press and hold the volume up button (Bootloader unlock screen)
    6. Once on the bootloader unlock screen, press the volume up button to confirm the unlock (WARNING: This action will perform a factory reset and the phone may restart once or twice (this is normal), you will soon boot back into the Setup wizard, skip this initial setup there is no need to login to anything.)
    7. Enable Developer options again (Follow Step 1) and check that the OEM toggle is enabled & greyed out.
    8. Congratulations, you have unlocked the Bootloader and are ready to continue to the next step.

    STEP 2: FLASHING TWRP + PATCHED VBMETA:

    1. Download this TWRP+VBMETA file to your PC.
    2. Boot your phone into Download Mode.
    3. Single press Volume Up to start ODIN Mode
    4. Load ODIN on your PC.
    5. Go to options and untick "Auto Reboot"
    6. Select (USERDATA) slot and select the downloaded file from Step 1.
    7. Click start on ODIN and wait for it to finish.
    8. Upon a pass, keep the phone connected to your PC or headphones then hold the Power button + Volume down button, as soon as the screen goes black hold the Power button and Volume UP button.
    9. You should now be in TWRP.

    STEP 3: INITIAL TWRP STEPS:
    1. Do a full data wipe (Wipe -> Format Data -> Type "yes")
    2. Reboot back into RECOVERY (Reboot -> Recovery)
    3. Download the latest Unbound release and copy it to your phone (PC to Phone) or a USB OTG device, or if you have SD Card you could store it on that.

    STEP 4: INSTALLING UNBOUNDROM:
    1. In TWRP, click "Install" if using a USB OTG device press "Select storage" and press "USB OTG" or "SD Card" if using an SD Card.
    2. Browse to the location you stored the ROM zip.
    3. Swipe to confirm the flash.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions, select your desired features, and wait for the ROM to install.
    5. When the ROM has finished installing, press "Save Logs" to send to the Developer if you bump into any issues.
    6. Reboot into the System.
    7. Do the setup wizard as normal.
    8. Congratulations, you have successfully installed UnboundROM and are good to go! Enjoy!

    CLEAN FLASH (RECOMMENDED)

    1. Boot into TWRP
    2. Load UnboundROM zip
    3. In Wipe Options, select "Clean Install"
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions, and wait for UnboundROM to be installed.
    5. Boot into the system.

    DIRTY FLASH (NOT RECOMMENDED)

    A dirty flash may or may not work, as we cannot guarantee that flashing UnboundROM over the top of another ROM will cause any issues so therefore it is not recommended by us, but of course, it is your device and your responsibility so please feel free to make your own choice here but please do not come to our chats and complain about issues caused from a dirty flash over another custom ROM.

    When updating versions of Unbound, it is very dependent on what version you are currently running and the version you are wanting to update to, an example being if you are on V1.0 and want to update to V1.1, a dirty flash would be fine unless stated in the OP otherwise.
    However, if to say you are upgrading the OS version i.e OneUI 3 to OneUI 4 then you would need to update your device to the latest firmware first via SamFirm/Frija/hadesFirm etc.

    Please take note of the changelogs of each version as they will state the requirements to update, and if a clean flash will be required or not.

    When a dirty flash is not possible, and you need to update your device to the latest/specified firmware please follow the recommended steps below. These steps will assume you are already running UnboundROM:

    1. Download the latest/required firmware using either samFirm, Frija or hadesFirm
    2. Unzip the firmware zip and remove the .md5 from the end of each file name.
    3. Boot your phone into download mode, load up odin and turn off Auto reboot in options and load the files into the relevant slots. ( BL = BL, AP = AP, CP = CP, CSC = HOME_CSC) (IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE "HOME_CSC" TO KEEP YOUR DATA INTACT)
    4. Press start, and wait for it to complete.
    5. When complete, keeping the phone connected to the PC boot your phone into TWRP, and load the latest/downloaded rom.zip
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the ROM to be installed.
    7. When the installation is complete, press the "Save Log" button in case of any issues.
    8. Congratulations, you have successfully updated your version of UnboundROM. Boot to the system and enjoy!

    Thread has been updated with Unbound V1.1 links, happy flashing!

    I dont get how some people think theyre somehow "winning" by getting rid of google...i have never understood it...all youre literally doing is making your device, and therefore life, less functional

    Reminds me of that ROM some dev cooked up for my old Pixel 2XL and other devices that was so paranoid focussed that on their FAQ it actually said to wear baseball caps to avoid detection in real life and keep your phone in a farady bag when not using it...im not even joking here

    Personally all the same level of bonkers thought processes to me, seems like everyone who feels this way should go and join a militia in Michigan and bang on about the "new world order"

    If you dont like google apps, then go and buy an iphone and see how much you like that.....ill keep your seat warm here for when you get back :)

    Google isnt the problem, its what people cough up on social media and communications thats the problem....and i cant believe people havent figured this out by now...stop blaming google, they only use what you voluntarily give them...so please stop blaming Google, its your fault, stop sharing so much... some people cant help themselves, oversharing has become a cancer...

    Me, ive been interconnected since BBS days, and to date theres not even one picture of me out there, or any of my personal info, probably because i dont think im important enough to bother people with my inane life...sadly this restraint is not shared by most of society...people like to vomit everything they do in life onto the web, with pictures

    And then they want to bang on about privacy and the erosion of such

    I weep for humanity, youre the problem...

    For people who are not familiar with intricacies of Galaxy line firmwares - what are differences between S20 and S21 firmware? What is the benefit of switching it?

    The code *#1234# does not work.
    S20 Ultra
    This has been fixed in V1.1 update that is currently in testing.
