I installed it on my j250m, and it works well, I tried with the google version j250f, and it came out that an application had stopped and there was no signal, then I tried with the j250g version, and it works well for me so far, I thought not It was going to work because the source said it was binary 3 and I had binary 5, but it works, thanks, greetings from Peru.

That's good it worked well for you :) Greetings from Australia. I am going to do one more update that will fix the UI so you can use Dark theme.

Just installed V3 (Samsung Version)
It is working good in my J250F.

But: ---> ---> ---> --->

Some major bugs:
- a dialogue everytime i unlock my phone "Messages Stop Working".
- Galaxy Store do not install apps after downloading. Says "error installing: 0".
- A lag for 20s to 30s whenever i restart/reboot my phone.

Suggestion:-
- There is a network speed meter in V2 but it's removed in V3. It is helpful so can you add it again in V3. [ Edit: suddenly i noticed that after a reboot it shows that option 🤘. Thanks it is a useful tool/feature 😊]
- android 8 (if possible).
- a screen recorder instead of games app.

ok will use v2 for now. Thanks!

Here, some more feedback:
- Carrier Services not working properly. (sometimes my Jio is unable to place calls)
- Unable to go live on Insta, Facebook, etc.
- Unable to set live wallpapers ("wallpaperpicker has stopped")

Hope this Helps! 😊
anyways thanks you for this awesome rom 😄

I used the Samsung rom, anybody able to install microG? I am able to patch and have signature spoofing enabled, but when I install the microg stuff I am stuck in samsung boot logo, I let it run for 30 minutes before removing battery. I have tried the NanoDroid method and installing the microg repository on F-droid. Been at it a while.

Edit: Gave up on this rom after trying to use magisk to install microg. If anyone else is trying to get microg to take keep reading --> Downloaded latest from official firmware from sammobile, used Super R Kitchen (linux) to deodex rom and to add magisk, then patched services.jar using NanoDroid-patcher-22.6.20200208.zip in TWRP recovery. J250F booted and I installed amaze.apk from external_sd card enabled root then deleted google stuff in /system/priv-app/ in preparation for microg. (see microg prerequisites) Rebooted back into recovery and installed microg with NanoDroid-microG-22.6.20200208.zip. Phone booted and microg self test is good to go! Just need to debloat a little samsung garbage and I am happy camper.
Hey mate! Thanks for this write up! I want to use microg.
Some questions though!
I looked up sammobile (and elsewhere) for the latest official firmware - but I am not sure what to use. It appears to be based on country! There is nothing for Australia. What should I use?
Is there a good guide for Super R Kitchen
and
NanoDroid patcher?
Thanks!
