Thanks a lot for the update, this fixed many bugs, like the NFC settings now works, and it seems to have fixed the 5.1.1 overheating issue

Excited to try this ROM out but is there any problem moving back and forth between Android 10 and 11 via TWRP?
Only asking because I seem to remember being unable to try out any Android 7 ROMS when I was using Android 10. So I don't want to be unable to go back to Android 10 if I flash DotOs.
Any of this make sense? Hope so 😂👍

No problem asking,
you can flash 8, 9, 10, 11 since you do a full wipe

Thanks for the new version keep it up !

So you can flash between Android 8-11 using TWRP, that's great 👍
Let's say for argument's sake that I wanted to downgrade to Android 7 from 10 - presumably I'd have to flash (via Odin) the stock Android 7 firmware?
l
I'm relatively new to Samsung - hence the curiosity! ☺️

*EDIT* Is there any way of activating the navbar on this ROM or any way of killing apps using the back button?

I tested the latest version today and so far my only problems are: there is no way to disable the hardware button backlight via settings without enabling osb (the osb is also buggy and unusable), the hardware navbar is also always awake and vibrates when touched in AOD, I can't use double tap to wake even though tap to wake under 'Display' menu in Settings is checked, there is no signature spoofing support and I can't install magisk systemlessly.

The ROM itself looks as slick as I remembered them in the past versions. So, good job porting this rom to s7. (y)
