IronMan-Rom for the Note 8 is finally here with a dedicated thread

Hey guys! Here we are another time
Assuming that you already know me more or less, this rom is based upon latest Samsung Experience 9.0 (Android 8.0). I really love the Samung UI, that's why I work on those roms and not on AOSP such as LineageOS, I know I'm a little fanboy
Coming to the features, it's similar to the ones you'll find on my other roms such as BatMan-Rom (for the S8/S8+ and S7/S7e) or the SuperMan-Rom (for the S7/S7e) or even the EOL (End Of Life) HydraRom (for the glorious N7)

The Rom itself contains many many custom features via RomControl, I'll list the most important ones below, still you are very welcome to try them all via the RomControl app (choosable in aroma). Now enough talking, wish you much fun flashing the rom and hope you'll enjoy it!


Nobody is allowed to take stuff from my rom without asking me! Thank you.

IF YOU FOLLOW MY STEPS BELOW, YOU WILL MAY LOSE YOUR WARRANTY, KNOX WILL DISPLAY 0x1! I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGED DEVICE!

How to install the rom:
For advanced users:
0. Make sure to have a backup somewhere on external storage
1. Make sure to be on most recent TWRP, bootloader and modem
2. Flash the rom
3. If you need VoLTE or Wifi Calling, flash your correct carrier CSC
4. Done

For normal users:
0. Boot your phone, enable OEM unlock in developer settings
1. Flash TWRP with Odin, following this thread Note 8 TWRP until it works correctly (to access download mode, press bixby+volume down+power on while phone is turned off)
2. Make sure you are using most recent bootloader and modem, latest one available here on Android File Host
3. Now boot into TWRP by pressing bixby+volume up+power on while phone is turned off
4. If TWRP asks you about allowing system to be edited, swipe yes to confirm
5. In TWRP, go to wipe, format data (a keyboard will pop up now), type "yes" (this will wipe all your data, make sure to have a backup!)
6. After this, reboot recovery and start the rom installer
7. Select your preferences in my aroma installer, make sure to chose NO ROOT for the first rom flash so dalvik-cache can be build properly!
8. If you selected to auto update bootloader in aroma, the installer will reboot automatically
9. You can still install my CSC selection if you are customer of a carrier which is not supported by default CSC inside the rom
10. Wait till the rom boots up
11. Go though the setup and boot back into twrp. Then flash your preferred root method in the recovery
12. After setting up, open IronControl Free and let the app apply my default settings!
13. Enjoy the rom!

so i installed b2, prior to this build and got the same experience so reverted to renovate., downloaded ur new rom today, clean flashed it, as soon as i try to restore my 29 apps from tibu, and reboot, the screen just flashes like crazy and i'm unablee to use the phone unlock it or do anything, same thing happened to b2.

I did remove that stupid 3minit battery app and it's resources apk. is that something to do with it? if so can we have a option in aroma not to have 3minit battery?
I did not remove anything else prior to restoring my own apps and rebooting.

On renovate when i do the same thing i do not experience the same result.

thanks in advanced tkkg1994

Edit: i also lost root as soon as i booted up, chose 14.5 magisk in aroma

If you remove 3minit = systemui crash. Why? The systemui relies on it, that's why we have the romcontrol to disable it. The apps don't run in the background, they don't use any space, nor ram, nothing. There is no reason to delete those apks. If you choose to have the stock UI you won't get them installed of course.

I explained once back on SuperMan why I will NOT make a separate systemui with/without 3minit and that will stay the same for now.

All issues related to magisk, please report to the magisk threads here

Another masterpiece from the Roger Federer of XDA, runs beautiful on N8, no issues, hope you can crack the CSC encryption in the future but you've pretty much nailed it so far, thanks for your work.

It's fairly common for FD devices that had the missing OEM unlock to lose root when using magisk in initial flashes, doesn't appear to me they know why.

What does that mean???

Good luck finding a ROM (official or custom) that doesn't have stuff you don't want in it, if you want such a ROM then develop your own.

This Dev is one of the best so seeing that comment is insulting.

He makes it quite clear that the settings are disabled in ROM Control and with them disabled they have no influence on the system whatsoever.

Your loss in skipping this ROM, one of the best in my opinion.
