F.A.Q

Q: How to root it?
A: Grab Magisk from here.

Q: Splash screen gets more and more greenish when I try to boot. Is that normal?
A: Of course not. This means you're not on Marshmallow bootloader & Modem. Flash any MM stock ROM first before you flash this ROM.

Q: ROM booted but there is no gallery, clock etc. Why did you removed it?
A: I didn't, YOU debloated them in aroma installer. Reflash the ROM again without wiping data and this time don't debloat them.

Q: There is no CSC folder in /system. How to add CSC features?
A: This ROM is featured with OMC, a new multi CSC solution. Locate to /system/omc and add your features to customcsc.xml.

Q: My GPS does not find my location. Any fix?
A: Download GPS Test app from Google play, run it, go outside and wait 10 minutes.

Q: Do I have to clean flash when there is a new update?
A: No, flash it over a previous version is ok.

Q: I enabled screen recorder in aroma but I can't find it in settings. How to run screen recorder?
A: You can find it's settings in settings > advanced features > screen recorder. To start recording, pull down quick settings, search for Screen Capture tile, extend it and select screen recorder.

Q: XYZ app does not work/force closes and I want create a log to help you. How can I create a logcat?
A: I'm glad you'd like to help. Follow this xda tutorial or download any logcat app from Google Play.

Q: Why still no Oreo or Pie port?
A: Samsung won't update any MSM8916 device to Oreo/Pie anymore.

Q: Why I can't enable 4G in second SIM?
A: Galaxy MSM8916 modems don't support dual LTE.

Q: I've enabled navigation bar but I don't like it. How can I remove it?
A: Reflash the ROM select everything you did before except nav bar without wiping data.

Q: Do I have to flash Galaxy A8 2018 mods, recoveries etc. when I use this ROM?
A: NO! This ROM will not transform your Galaxy to an A8. Only flash mods, recoveries etc. meant for your device variant.

Q: Mobile data does not work on my J500H...
A: Upgrade to SEP 8.5 ROM v3.5+

Please read the installation instructions carefully:

Installation:

0. Make sure you have TWRP Recovery with aroma installer support installed or installation will fail at compatibility check!!

It's no script problem, it's your TWRP version. Get any TWRP Recovery with full aroma support then compatibility check will pass
