Hello to everyone looking for support for the Galaxy A41.What's the deal with the Samsung Galaxy A41?
There is no XDA-Forum for this smartphone
There also seems to be no community for this phone.
Searching the internet for A41 compatible Custom ROMs ends in less than nothingness even in the darkest corners.
What's going on? The phone is on the market since March 2020. The phone is pretty good in specs (middle-class).
AND it is the ONLY phone under 200 bucks today that is NOT larger than 150mm in length and therefor usable in pockets.
I don't get it why it doesn't get the same attention as the other competitors in the same price class.
Can anybody enlighten me what's happening?
Please XDA mods and admins, if this is just a mistake, please open a samsung forum for the A41!

Decode the XML with OmcTextDecoder. No need to reencode before using it back on the phone.
I copied all the files from that directory, modified the XML, and overridden the original directory with a basic Magisk module.
Thanks a lot, @F308 . I found out that the one I used had different parameters! Maybe that was causing my problems! Now I downloaded another Odin and made sure it is the same as you used. I will repeat all my previous efforts but now using "your version" of Odin.
I tried to root my A41 so I wanted to do it the exact way you did, to be able to root it.
Thanks!! I will read all carefully. Actually, it will be the first time I read from John Wu, because previously I followed instructions from other source. I truly hope the reason for fails is not the custom kernel that I already have on the phone.As I remember now I rooted A41 second time.
This time I am sure it was Magisk 23 and Android 11.
You had to make a mistake somewhere along the way.
My Android is XEO, btw.
I suggest to slow down and read John Wu instructions once more.
Not one time I missed significant point while reading too fast.
I have one of these since a couple of days and I have to say it is a really nice phone with a really bad issue: the jpg compression is super aggressiveand photos that should look great given the lens and sensor look bland and smudgy. As far as I understand, there is no camera api2 exposed at all by default. All camera apps that I have tried produce worse images and gcam does not work (I have tried about 20 different ones, for Mediatek and otherwise). If Samsung could just let me bump up JPEG quality to 95% I would be completely satisfied with this phone, but I guess that would never happen.
I therefore wonder, is there any chance that your success rooting the phone could lead to bumping up the JPEG quality of the stock camera app, eventually expose camera api2 or somehow allow us to install a version of gcam down the line?
Concerning the above.2* Install lates Magisk manager from https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/latest (Used v22.0) on phone.
