The feeling of the battery draining after the ROM being used is natural, as for the battery draining overnight as I have mentioned in the above post, try finding the rogue application/applications that are causing the system to hold wake-locks and not go to sleep.

As for the restarts, those are being also looked into , as i think they are most probably due to the SystemUI crashing issue and will hopefully solved in the future.

As for applications like Netflix not appearing, sad to say but you need to be rooted using magisk with magiskhide enabled, for Netflix to work on our old devices.

The camera is something that probably won't improve its condition as the whole implementation and just the huge pain in the back it is to just get working, its just the nature of samsung's camera blobs are, basically we are patching these blobs to work on newer versions of android glitches and problems with the camera are part and parcel of samsung camera in custom ROM's

Reminder: As for the battery in general these devices are as of now nearly 6 years plus old, how much ever magic i try stuffing into the Rom there is a limit as to how much the phone can do.

P.S I can't seem to quote your entire post due to character limitations from XDA

Cheers, Hope You Enjoy The ROM

Thanks for your reply. I will try to monitor battery and apps which could make the battery drained.

I enjoy the ROM for sure, as I said its the nice one I tried until now. Hope you will succed to work on Android 11 ;)

Alright, it is done. I don't know why there was a change when I unlocked SIM, but PE10 now detects SIM.

The last time: I installed PE10, didn't work, formatted (in TWRP, type in yes, etc), then I did advance wipe, wiped everything again, then I installed PE10 again, didn't wipe dalvik/cache. I've tried pretty much every other combination of things. It started up and immediately saw SIM (unlike the problem I was having earlier) plus, first boot was less than 5 minutes. I hear first boot can take up to and beyond 30 minutes, so I always waited at least an hour before.

I'm thinking the fact I had the wrong TWRP was the call that finally let me get this installed. Thanks for pointing that out, Exhigh.

merhaba

rom gerçekten harika 15 gündür kullanıyorum çok sorunla karşılaşmadım..

sorunlarım şöyle.

1- batarya biraz çabuk bitiyor
2-güç tuşu veya ev tuşuna basınca cihaz yeniden başlıyor
3- yeniden başladığında takılı takılıyor. üç tuş ile yeniden başlatmak zorunda kalıyorum.

eğerki bunları düzeltebilirsek yazılımın sorunu yok

kamera içinde ben footaj camerayı kullanıyorum bence harika

Translation:

Hello there

the rum is really great I have been using it for 15 days I haven't encountered many problems ..

my problems are as follows.

1- battery drains a little quickly
2-Pressing the power button or home button restarts the device
3- When it restarts it gets stuck. I have to reboot with three keys.

If we can fix them the software has no problem

I use footaj camera in camera I think it is great

Hello,
I installed the rom yesterday, very very good rom. GPS reception sucked with the stock rom, now it is superb.

However, I can't find how to turn off the always on display.
My S6 phone is always in my car as a navigation tool, it it charging only while driving.
I can, though, turn it off overnight but prefer not to do so.
With the stock rom if I parked with 100% battery in the evening, it was around 85% in the next morning.
Now the battery drained to dead because of the always on display.

Thank you,
Shlomo

I turned on my stock S6 and got some firmware updates last week. Seems lots of Samsung phones have had "driver updates" ?

looking on SAM mobile virtually all recent-ish Samsung phones got some update/patches/driver fix in Nov / Dec 2020 from ALL vendors worldwide. https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/galaxy-s6/firmware/#SM-920f That's more than an 18 month gap since the last of anything I was offered. Weirdly the security patch level remains stuck in 1 Jul 2018

MINE NOW HAS
G920FXXS6ETI6
G920FXEU6ETJ1
G920FXXU6ERF6

Clearly that's not going on many modified devices. I wonder if it will make features behave better on modified devices?

Welp, SMS worked, and I can reinstall if I do a full wipe. It detects SIM. But no sound in calls, no mms, no mobile data even though it shows reception.

Problems appear with multiple SIMs. I need to go and find another ROM again for G920W8. :/ It's been a couple of weeks since I got it to install, but I can't find any fixes for these other problems.

Thanks for the awesome rom!
I installed it on my S6 (SM-G920F) thanks to djibe89 and his guide:

But I still have two questions:
1) Is it normal that Magisk fails the SaftyNet?
(I installed Magisk latest version (21.2) afterwards, if this matters.)

2) Is it save to enable encryption?
Has anyone noticed problems?
Will I still be able to update the rom to a newer version?

(Sorry, if some of those questions seem silly, but this was my first time installing a custom rom.)

1)Yes, it is normal for Magisk to fail on SafetyNet on a custom ROM. This is no problem unless you are using some app that refuses to work because of SafetyNet. You can try to fix the SafetyNet with the MagiskHide Props Config module.
2)You should not try to activate encryption or the phone will go into bootloop. If you have done so and are in bootloop, format the data and reinstall the ROM in TWRP recovery. This is because Recovery cannot decrypt and read the data.

Thanks @Exhigh for this nice ROM.

Feedback from my device SM-G920F.

Face unlock doesn't work. Error report: "Enrolment was not completed. Face enrolment didn't work."

NFC is not functional.

Will there be an update for the rom in future?

Best wishes.

The In-Call Audio Issues with latest build still persist. My phone is g20w8. I already flashed the necessary fixes but still no luck. Any advise?

Can someone share with me mixer_paths_0.xml? I changed some values and now I have no sound, forgot to make backup :) extracting from rom isn't option. I was trying to make dual speaker mod.
Thanks!

Works fine, generally, thanks. Camera focus is occasionnally strange, even when tapping on the target object. EAP-SIM seems impossible to FreeWifi_secure (free.fr ISP communitary hotspots) (whereas other devices do connect, and S6 connects to other WPA2/3 experimental hidden SSID from mini4k freebox WAP router). Wifi dropout issue during Whatsapp phone (whereas other devices stay connected).

The rom allows its own file explorer OTG NTFS and ExFat fine, but no longer ES3 file explorer NTFS and ExFat thumbdrives through menu+device tap (but does work through /mnt/media_rw which does not show device name/size/usage) with previous Samsung stock rom 7 nougat. I like ES3 file explorer (yes old version 3 preferred), because of multiple swipe-screens (each window with its own path helps me remember admin stuff to do).

I'm having trouble with smb connection to Macos High Sierra shares (might be rom, might be macbook user/shares-config or s6 NoRoot-Firewall acting out). Someone holler if cognisant of newer file explorer replacement with similar features and smb dropping of complete folders from/to s6/macbook ...

FYI (not a help-me request), this rom seems to have occasional trouble sending the real device Wifi MAC even when configured to do so on my hidden SSID (rather than randomised anonymous MAC), because my DHCP reserved IP is occasionally off (and the relevant MAC modified rather than constant MAC for my device)

    Hi, I've started to get crashes on Device Health Services, unsure since when because I've probably just not noticed it much before.

    msg: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Turbo installed on a device without a default curve.
    stacktrace: java.lang.RuntimeException: An error occurred while executing doInBackground()

    Has anyone got any idea what to do about it? As I've not seen other issues related to this I'm guessing I can just ignore it :)

    I'm a bad forum user and keep posting things in the wrong thread. I had a weird issue with this set of ROMs, and I'd love to use them.

    I have an S6 from Bell Canada. It should be G920W8, but it reports itself as G920F. I don't know of things that can change that reporting. The build for G920F works, but it fails to detect the SIM. I've tried many reinstalls, and other online fixes.

    The build for G920W8, however, will not install. It says it is for zerofltecan, which my device is not (as far as I can tell, my device is zeroflte, but zerofltexx builds usually work fine).

    My only other issue I had the whole time testing this out was that the hardware buttons are turned off by default, and the gesture/swipe buttons were not working, including the home button. This is fixed by opening settings first after launch. Anything else and I was stuck.

    Compared to other ROMs, this one really started up in a flash. Very snappy. I don't plan on restarting my device often, but it really felt good.

    If your sure that your device is the G920W8, try flashing the twrp of the model on your device and try flashing the appropriate Rom Zip for your Mobile and let me know.

    Cheers

    Some feedback after a month of use (G920F version):

    Firstly, thank you really much for this ROM, it's a really fast one, and with the fewest bugs I tried!

    The feeling of the battery draining after the ROM being used is natural, as for the battery draining overnight as I have mentioned in the above post, try finding the rogue application/applications that are causing the system to hold wake-locks and not go to sleep.

    As for the restarts, those are being also looked into , as i think they are most probably due to the SystemUI crashing issue and will hopefully solved in the future.

    As for applications like Netflix not appearing, sad to say but you need to be rooted using magisk with magiskhide enabled, for Netflix to work on our old devices.

    The camera is something that probably won't improve its condition as the whole implementation and just the huge pain in the back it is to just get working, its just the nature of samsung's camera blobs are, basically we are patching these blobs to work on newer versions of android glitches and problems with the camera are part and parcel of samsung camera in custom ROM's

    Reminder: As for the battery in general these devices are as of now nearly 6 years plus old, how much ever magic i try stuffing into the Rom there is a limit as to how much the phone can do.

    P.S I can't seem to quote your entire post due to character limitations from XDA
