Hey everyone, Finally after a long time V4 is here. ive put 10 times more effort into this compared to the previous releases. Tons were changed and the entire ROM was built up from scratch. everything rom the rom to the kernel was fully remade and improved. 30K Downloads later on V3.
Today happens to be my 22nd Birthday, and i would like to give you all a gift instead.

This Version is without a doubt the biggest ROM ive worked on to date, through development challenges, special device issues , ROM Size and tons more, it was exhausting. however
the end result makes it all worth it. testers on multiple variants / devices / configs came back positive.
While the buglist still leaves some to be desired i think this is as good as i can make it for now. maybe in the future if there was a V5 we will see it reduced.

The changelog is massive, and to summarize it, many annoying things in V2/V3 were finally resolved including the most important thing which is CALLING. US variants are finally properly supported. except the ones that use QMUX modems. maybe that will be for another day

As always, THANK YOU for being dedicated to this project. and special thanks to @DR_Amoxicillin @corsicanu @TheOGLunarixus and my testers for helping both directly and indirectly

I hope you Enjoy the ROM. if you appreciate this project consider donating @ Paypal

V3 Notes

Hey everyone, Somehow we are still standing with this project, it is as horrible as it seems, yet fun. I started this project 8 months ago to "flex" only, turns out people enjoy it including myself, Through Oreo and Pie this project has been hell to make yet i think we are at a state were we can drop the ALPHA and BETA labels of!, V3 was in active development for over 2 months (Unlike V2 where i started a month before release) This one was carefully built, and entirely from scratch (For the third time). However i understand, you guys are tired of Note7FE. and want something different, Thanks to my partner @corsicanu that is possible. He crafted one of the best feature-full roms on xda. HadesRom and with that as a base for our project, This device became something else, something amazing. and honestly better than any rom i would have made feature wise. Thanks to him and All the flagship features such as infinity wallpapers, Some S10 Features and many others are present, the aroma is PACKED with goods. This rom is around 200/300 MB larger than the previous one (which wasn't small to begin with) however i believe it is worth it. Me and [MENTION=7098450]kill-switch and my testers spent alot of time perfecting it, Now we support every variant that uses Exynos7420 besides china variants, those are to come later. the US variants of the S6E+ And Note 5 are supported too. I will be making a dedicated S6 thread aswell
While i am 100% sure not all users will have the same experience, i believe the vast majority will enjoy it, As always this rom is NOT for everyone, if you want a stock camera, this aint it chief. no matter how much we want it, it is just not gonna happen any time soon if ever, thats just the nature of developing a rom that is 2 major versions beyond samsung. if you dont mind the limitations mentioned below, Enjoy it as much as possible.
And as always, if you appreciate this project and want to support us , press thanks, share your opinions and help the people in this thread who are struggling. I wont be available 24/7 to do so.
You can also help us purchase more cocaine to continue development by donating me Here or @corsicanu here or @kill-switch here or @lunarixus Here

V1/V2 Notes :
So. 5 months ago i posted this ROM. big mistake, it means i have to maintain it, which i suck at. after 2 rebases and finishing V2 twice. OneUI happened for some reason god knows why, but yeah. This ROM is BETA AF. there is alot of crap that needs to be fixed besides the general bugs we had in oreo. give or take, if you are adventurous. go ahead and flash it, if not. dont B*itch in the thread about it and flash another ROM. This ROM is NOT for average ROM users. it is for those who want to be on the bleeding edge.. it wont come out of BETA until the bug list becomes shorter. This ROM is OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED ONLY on the NOTE 5 International variants. its the one i have, the one i can test personally. it will BOOT on N5/S6/S6E And S6E+ and work well relatively speaking if you bother to read the F.A.Q. Korean and US variants are also supported for all those models via Aroma options so take care. however Note 5 US variants might not work. you can try. S6/S6E support is very BETA so use with a grain of salt, a big one. read the f.a.q for tips on how to make the experience suck less.

Eventually when you discover a new Bug that shouldn't be there, DO NOT SEND ME MATLOGS. CATLOGS or whatever. Follow the guide up there on How to properly send logs. otherwise i wont care less about your post. very simple. Remember that this port is NOT supped to be possible. we should not be running oneUI, but the stars aligned in our favor. And please there is no need to tell me to fix XYZ. if its listed in bugs or was reported. im on it.

So. TLDR; This may or may not be your daily rom, it depends on who you are. if you want oneUI, this is the price. if not, there are plenty of other ROMs based on Nougat that will work right. so use them instead and let the thread be in peace.

I sincerely hope the people who end up using this rom have fun, its a fun experience, ive been using it for the past month. and its refreshing.


Old releases (Booreo)

Hey Note 5 Community, This is my first project for this device, one of many to come. many of you might know me from my Note4 projects, i have decided to purchase the note5 in order to provide for this community quality ROMs , in hopes that maybe one day everyone here will be using an Oreo based port, instead of living on nougat that samsung left us with.
Why N7FE and not N8 S9 or any newer port ? Simply said, it is too early for me and the current state of oreo. there is some important stuff that needs ironing out before introducing more bugs. N7FE Struck a great balance between a stable port, and a feature rich one. i have also thrown in alot of additional stuff you can check below.

Support for other variants will come in the future, i choose to support this small amount due to time constraints.


RULES OF POSTING : READ everything before commenting, And especially the install steps, the rom has been tested thoroughly for a long time, so if you have an critical issue like not booting or no sim, you missed the instructions, posts that are irrelevant to this project will be ignored(Constructive criticism is welcomed). If you do face a new bug however, dont just say "hey bug here" provide more information, and a LOGCAT, bug reports without logcats will most likely be ignored.

-Updating gametools (without installing navbar) will break it
-On first setup, let the phone update everything before using it
-to keep youtube vanced, untik autoupdates from platstore

Floyd V4.0 F.A.Q

Q : No Simcard being detected
A : Disable / remove SIMLOCK From another device or ROM

Q : Whatsapp web QR not working
A:
Quote:

For those, who have problems when trying to use Whatsapp Web:
1. Go to Developer Options
2. Change the Smallest Width to 443 dp (443 works for me, try bigger or smaller value)
3. Switch to WhatsApp and scan QR Code
4. Restore Smallest Widht to 411 again
credit: @vijayinani

Q : Samsung camera does not turn on
A : Disable auto brightness (idk why dont ask)

Q : Some apps lose internet after a while or at first setup
A : Reboot your device or change process limit in developer options to 2 (due to wifi implementation)

Q : What is the best camera app ?
A : For back photos use samsung camera, for videos and selfies use Footej or idan gcam or unixcamera

Q : Cant lower incall volume on US variants
A : Side-effect of using AOSP HAL, use hkTweaks > MoroSound > reduce earpiece volume

Q : How to use GEARVR ?
A : Download and install GEARVR Setup from APKMIRROR
P.S : it is very laggy. in order to fix that you need to edit system/build.prop and change SM-N960F to SM-N920C
However that is likley to break BixbyVoice. and maybe other FE specific features which are unclear now

Q : how to use GameTools ?
A : Due to prop being changed to N950F to support bixby, if you want to use Gametools go to settings > apps > show system apps if needed > gametools and UNINSTALL updates
P.S : You can also disable it from auto updating from there

Q : My gallery cant sync samsung photos from Cloud
A : A common bug on oneUI roms from samsung. we are waiting for an update

Q : How to get Root ?
A : Download Magisk and MagiskManager from the Official Thread . flash magisk.zip and install the APK

Q : Can i use SView cover ?
A : I haven't tested myself as i dont have the cover, but it might not work

Q : What to do after the rom is setup ?
A : Go to samsung apps, let the phone update everthing

Q : My phone does NOT boot help pls
A : Ensure you have LATEST AF bootloader and modem installed, did all the wipes, and did your house chores,

Q : How to take videos ?
A : use Footej Camera

Old
-- Oreo version F.A.Q --

Camera works in apps that have their own jpeg processing, whatsapp, snapchat are some
HDR+ Might cause weird wobbbling in google camera, avoid it
For the most optimal feature set, Pick CSC instead of OMC
- In some countries OMC can lose feature sets
If you pick OMC be sure to select the RIGHT slection for simcard question at setup wizard
- Failure in doing that will keep the the popup and no simcard will work
- You can Pick CSC to avoid this or read the thread instructions

Q : Camera doesnt open (googlecam)
A : try to install manually from here

Q : Phone took alot of time to boot, and is very laggy
A : pay attention to install steps and reboot if you flashed magisk

Q : There is SIM popup that keeps coming to ask me for restart
A : you DID NOT follow the instructions, Reinstall the rom and pay attention

Q : in the first SIM question in setup wizard, language is not english, what does it say
A : The RIGHT button is what you need to press, it will factory reset the phone (not touching your internal) and setup your /EFS with an OMC file that is linked to your simcard, so the rom will auto detect your CSC just like official samsung phones

Q : I dont see any EDGE panels after installing
A : Reboot the phone

Q : How is battery Life ?

PATCH 1 : G92XS/L/K Audio Fix

Download : Here

PATCH 2: GPS fix
For those N5/S6/S6E/S6E+ users facing GPS issues
(Such as no lock, no GNSS FIX or no offline gps etc)

Download Fix : Here

So far only some S6 Devices needed this
Thanks @sammomin for sending logs of the issue and testing with me

PATCH 3 : No simcard on some devices

if you dont have simcard being detected, the issue is due to SIMLOCK. so using another Nougat ROM or a different device, Remove simlock and it will work

PATCH 4 : WifiHotspot Fix

Download : GoogleDrive

This will fix WiFi hotspot "failed to obtain IP"
P.S : Dont ask me about WiFi Sharing as our hardware does not support that afaik

one ui v2.0 was my first entry to custom roms and i was supriced and i was so amazed by it.I used the rom for a quiet sometime and it was ok but it had so many bugs some were ok for me but after a while i tried 2 or 3 different roms that are stable and they were fine but i ws not getting the same feeling the same experience that i had with one ui rom i daily checked the thread for updates and today as the daily routine i checked the thread and wow it has been updated i was super amazed.I searched for the download links but they were not there so i thought it will take a day or two to get those but i recieved a telegram notice saying that new verison has released i rushed to the thread and downloaded it. wow it had so many options to choose ,love that. Im currently exploring it . By the way huge huge huge thanks for the developer and all the other people who made this possible . Thanks for giving a new life for this aging device.Love you guys a lot.

Hey,

First congratulations for this, it's a really good news Pie (and especially One UI) is coming to our phones. By the way, it's really funny to see people are more hyped by a Samsung port rather than AOSP, who would have believed this couple of years ago ^^

The ROM is smooth even if the lack of HWC can be felt sometimes (freezes, etc). Everything works fine except one thing: in-call audio. Whether speakers or not, I can only hear sound for like a half of second then it mutes (the volume is at max), also switching speakers ON/OFF can produce a little freeze (the call duration counter freezes for like 4 seconds).

Except this and of course already known bugs (stock camera for example), nothing to report! I tried to force enable HWC by tweaking build.prop and the result is even better, it's very smooth I can only congratulate you and all the team behind for this work!

I come back to my original ROM since calls seems buggy but however whenever they get fixed I might switch back to it.
Model: G925F
