@dr460nf1r3 I'd really really appreciate it if you could provide a close to stock rom with all the knox, security apps taken out. I'm still getting reboots with v6

I am actually not seeing any freeze or reboot anymore on mine. I deleted the android folder as mentioned in this thread, and I had to undo my disable on the samsung apps that remain on this image. But so far its been very stable. I also think i cleaned both cache's right after I finished install but before the first boot.

cool cool. Here are some issues I've found with V6

* At setup stage tab hangs at "checking info" with spinning circle, happened multiple times
* reboot when switching between chrome & gmail
* Magisk doesn't pass safety net. Roll back to v18 stable produces the same. My stock image works ok on v18

I've figured out how to make a stock rom without knox and some bloat via SuperR kitchen. So far no reboots so I'm good.

Im glad you figured this out. This is also what I do apart from adding a few mods.
Does your version work with safety net?

Safety net is passed on my version, yes. V18 Stable

Then this is caused by my added apps/mods. Ill provide a less altered version of the ark4 firmware for everyone else wishing to pass safety net soon.
In fact, most of my modifications can be added by magisk modules such as the google play store doze or fonts etc. So thats also a way.

I installed this a little while ago and everything seems to be working fine except the camera does nothing when I open it. As a result of the camera not working I can't get Duo working. Any suggestions?

Bluetooth keyboard

Hello, I'm trying to connect an external bluetooth keypad. Pairing will be fine. The keyboard reports that it is connected as an input device. But when I type on the keyboard, no characters are displayed. The previous version of the stock was in the works. Any solution?

Whilst I appreciate that returning to the stock kernel was an acceptable solution for you, I would still be interested in troubleshooting the problem with you if you can supply me with some logs. The same goes for anyone else experiencing Bluetooth issues.

Thanks for the rom.
Start from fresh and delete one at a time, it's time consuming but normally is a combination of apps, to figure out which ones not to delete

Hello,
Just get a bluetooth mouse (Logitech M557 and no way to see the pointer on the tab screen.
Mouse is paired correctly and works fine with my Pixel 3
Have installed the libsecure bluetooth fix in Magisk already.

Is it related to this rom?
Thanks

I'm also experiencing this issue. I have a Logitech MX Ergo Plus and it's connecting but I can't get a pointer on the screen. It worked before I had this ROM installed. Is there a fix? I really love this ROM with Google Sans and everything but I would really love to get a mouse working. I'm using a T830 with 64gb. While I'm here, I'm having a (less important) issue where I can't update Magisk without the boot hanging. I can just flash a version from earlier this month, so it's no big deal.

It's probably related to the Modesty kernel. Several users have reported that Bluetooth input devices are not working. Unfortunately, I don't have such a device to test with.

I need an affected user to try some older versions of the kernel to determine when the issue was introduced.

    So after fixing this error preventing img extraction i was able to cook a new version of this rom. I didnt change much apart from switching to Nova Launcher and iOS emojis. Also the adblocking hostfile is standart now.

    After testing this for a while, I had no bugs while running this version until now. Hope you enjoy this release as much as I do. :cowboy:

    I debloated very softly so everything works if you have different use profiles than I do, personally I use package disabler to disable more than 50+ apps left in this rom without sacrificing stability so If you like very clean stuff thats your way to go.

    Here it is

    Clean flash + deleting android folder on sdcard is strongly advised, also clean cache if you deleted android folder in the new installation

    Release of rom version 2.1 :victory:
    Changelog:
    - GPS fixed
    - Few more buildprop tweaks taken from googlewiz oreo credits to foobar66
    - Modesty kernel by default credits to Ianmacd

    Dirty flash is always fine.

    Im thinking about replacing samsung apps by google ones however there wont be tooltips on spen hovering like on the samsung ones and no splitscreen while being not being in portrait mode. :confused:
    Any idea on what else to add/debloat/whatever?

    For T830 users im pretty sure that this rom will work fine If you flash the Modesty kernel after rom installation.

    - Now prerooted with latest Ianmacd magisk!

    v3.1 - File no longer available
    Im currently rebuilding the rom as the rom wasnt 100% stable in longterm use.
    The process will result in a bigger yet more stable rom which is fine i guess.
    Also, all of the apps including the launcher will be updated and all of the added Apps can now be removed.
    Magisk and kernel will be updated to the new release too.

    Rom will be up tomorrow as im busy today.

    BTW V4+ will be called Slim Tab :fingers-crossed:
