Open root explorer go to product edit build.prop change the model to SM-G9880 this will pass safety net and fix the error on galaxy store.

I uploaded the fix with new ROM, everything should be working.

Awesome thanks. The build prop edit worked perfectly.

@bklyn_syed

One more question. My device is the 988W Canadian version. My carrier is Telus. I'm also having an issue with chat not showing up in Samsung messages. Not sure if this would have something to do with my csc now at XAA/XAA/XAC rather then the Telus CSC?

It might be because CSC XAA usually doesn't include much for some reason, I have been using this for over week without any issues.
Can you get me your Home CSC file, I can edit it and add files to this rom, so it should work well with W also once all the CSC imported.

Nice thanks! Just in the process of downloading my firmware as we speak. I will send it over as soon as it's done.

    Removed V2.2 includes bixby

    ROM 2.7.7 uploaded
    This update not only effects S20, but also NOTE 20 and S21
    With DUDA update and going forward until I can figure out how to fix MODS, all updates will have stock battery, net speed and clock. This is due to Samsung blocking mods on systemui.
