Flash it like you would a ROM. Clean flash is best.
I clean flash every different Rom. Going from 998 to 996 or vice versa, clean flash. Going from dotos to RR or to aex or whatever, I clean flash. That's the way I was taught to avoid any unexpected problems.
The first app I install from the play store is titanium backup pro. I then restore all my other apps (about 30 or so) from there.
My phone is originally a Verizon vs996.
Noob question: just went from LS998 to US998 to VS998 using Frankenstein. I installed Magisk in the process to root; however, when I installed Titanium backup it says it didn't have root. Do I need to flash encryption disabler and root disabler in order to get root? I'm not sure what I missed.
There's a thread about installing Titanium Backup and getting it to recognize Magisk root. I'll find it.
Here you go:
Titanium Backup + Magisk?
