After the phone boots up and encounters the Welcome screen, follow the instructions to finish the setup. Remember, since the installation is still underway, when you see the "Please wait" message every time you perform a transaction, it may take a long time.

Root

FloydQ rom is installed unrooted to avoid problems. However, this is not a problem, on the contrary, it has been useful work for a more successful rom. You can install Magisk root on your phone yourself . You can use our explanation below for root:

 

Common Problems About FloydQ Rom

After the installation (after completing the operations on the welcome screen and facing the home screen), let your phone idle for 15 minutes to create the caches and optimize the system. Your phone will be HOT at this stage. If you have installed rom on rom, called Dirty Flashing , it is recommended to wait for 30 minutes. [/ Su_note]

Problems associated with the Samsung OneUI 2.5 interface:

These are issues caused by OneUI 2.5 and the rom maker has no power to fix. If a solution to these problems is found, they will be provided via updates.

  1. Google Chrome getting stuck, freezing:
    • This is a bug in recent OneUI 2.1 patches (mainly Chrome and Brave web browser) affecting the web view causing some apps to freeze. Click for details .
    • In the Chrome address line, type chrome: // flags / # ignore-gpu-blacklist and say go and enable Renderer override . This may increase your chances of getting rid of problems.
  2. Allowed Devices list issue on Hotspot: When entering this list, the phone may freeze. Click for detailed information .
  3. The Goodlock module SoundAssistant may mute the sound: SoundAssistant may mute the phone completely or cause it to be lower due to a bug. Click for detailed information .

Problems and Solutions:

Problem: Excessive battery usage or rapid battery drain
Solution: Charge your phone several times while it's off. So first wait for the battery to drain completely. Then charge with the phone turned off until your phone is fully charged. For some reason on the OneUI 2+ the battery only charges between 90% and 95%, for example up to 85% backlash sometimes (the system says 100%, but if you turn off the phone and charge it, you'll see it's less than 100%). The Rom developer tested this charging process on his own Samsung Galaxy S7 phone and was able to capture 3-4 hours of screen time. Click for detailed information about the error.

Problem: Sudden sound cut off
Solution: Current workaround; is either restarting or turning MoroSound on / off and dealing with EQ in HKTweaks (requires root)

Problem: Performance, fps, crash in games
Solution: Open Game Launcher . Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner of thescreen. Enter Game Performance . Go into the settings of any game andselect the Battery saver option andtap Apply . Click for video narration (in English).

Problem: After changing the wallpaper, no wallpapers appear and encounter black wallpaper
Solution: This is about choosing S9 + Wallpaper pack (S9 + Wallpaper pack)during the installation of the rom, thewallpaper will be reset in dirty flash operations.

Problem: Screen does not turn on in the morning after leaving the phone to charge at night (green LED only)
Solution: There is no 100% solution for everyone. However, using the device for a day or two often clears up the problem completely. Other workarounds are as shown below (including limiting to 99% of battery capacity):
- Press and hold the volume down and power key simultaneously for at least 10 seconds to restart the phone that won't turn on. When the phone vibrates, release the keys.
- This problem mostly occurs on your first rom install and disappears after a few days of use.
- Turning on the Always-on Display or using the screen saver (Settings> Display> Screen saver) can reduce the problem (the developer got rid of the problem this way)
- The best solution method is to not keep the phone on charge overnight for a few days after the initial setup of the rom or charge the phone while it is turned off.
Limiting the battery charge capacity to 99% seems to be a permanent solution. To limit the battery capacity to 99% , you must do it yourself using the Magisk module ACC (adaptive charge controller) module and its tuning app .

Problem: When you try to charge the phone it won't charge.
Solution: Check the temperature of your battery. OneUI 2 protocol prevents it from charging when your battery is above 42C. No solution has yet been found to remove this obstacle.

Problem: Phone speaker volume turned off, no sound at all.
Solution: When this problem occurs, restart the device.
-Enterthe HKtweaks applicationthat comes with the Rom,turn off Morosound and EQ from the Sound section. Thus, you will reset the function that caused the problems to occur.
While Morosoud / EQ is always enabled, some users do not experience this problem.

Problem: CIDManager asks you to reset the phone (Sim Card replaced popup appears).
Solution: Either reinstall the rom and change the CSC to Automatic or TUR, or using the file manager in TWRP, do the following:
- Go into Mount and check System.
- Enter Advanced> File Manager from the TWRP home screen.
- Navigate to system / system / priv-app / CIDManager location.
- Tap on the APK file you see there and select Delete and delete this file.
- Reboot the phone by going back to the TWRP home screen and following the path Reboot> System.

Problem: I am getting symlinks error, the rom installation is not successful.
Solution: As we told you in the AROMA setup, avoid ticking all the options otherwise you will get the installation error. Set up by checking the options you need.

Problem: I get an error when installing rom, even though I only ticked the options I need, why?
Solution: If you get an error while trying to install theromanddon't do the Wipe operations,when you try to installrom on the rom, the installation fails because you exceeded the size allowed by the system. After doing the wipe process, try to install the rom.

Problem: The device gets too hot.
Solution: If you have encountered this issue right after the initial installation of the rom, take it as normal as the device creates the caches and necessary files and adjusts the background.

Problem: My phone won't turn on, please help!
Solution: You should haveinstalled this rom with thelatest Android 8.0 Oreo update installed on your phone. If you are not sure about this, firstinstall the latest update to your phone using the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935F Download Stock Rom link. Then install this rom.
