I am not responsible if you brick your device flashing this rom. FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

What works:

Almost everything!

What doesn't work:

All Samsung specific features and iris scanning. Sakura OTA updates don't work either. I don't know how to fix this, but if one of u would like to help me fix this on telegram, maybe we can get the Sakura team to make this an official build.

google drive.

Steps to flash:

After copying the rom over to your device boot into recovery by holding Bixby Vol+ and PWR on boot.

Once in recovery, navigate to backup, and backup System, Cache, Data, and System Image.

Once the backup is done navigate to wipe, and wipe System, Data, and Cache, as well as Delvik Cache.

Then navigate to the Sakura ROM and flash it.

Please post any questions or concerns below. I hope you like it!
