* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this kernel
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
Welcome to hadesKernel

Some personal thoughts:
- this kernel works only on exynos variants of S8(+) and Note8, only Pie and OneUI based roms (stock and stock based roms) I'm not responsable for what can happen if you flash on other devices/roms/android versions.
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won't offer support for any issues regarding installation;
- for more info about features included and bug reports make sure you read post #3;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- feel free to send me some coffee (which btw, runs out pretty quick) via paypal, if you want to support my work.

Q: How to report bugs?
A: If you want to report a bug make sure you include:
-device variant / modem version / bootloader version / region
-detailed info about the encountered issue
-steps to reproduce the bug

Q: How to take logs?
A: Download Logcat Extreme and take a look at this.

Q: Does it work with stock rom?
A: Only if you format data on TWRP before installing, if you had stock kernel before - please do note this will erase all your data and internal storage

Q: How to revert to stock kernel?
A: That's not a choice at this moment, you either reflash your current custom rom (if that had stock kernel included), or install stock firmware via Odin which will probably cause damage to all your data including internal storage.

Q: What semi-systemless kernel means?
A: I changed the way of patching camera drivers and secure storage libs in a way to avoid altering original files, so if you are on stock rom and stock kernel, you can simply backup your boot.img and if you don't like hades you can restore that boot.img without any futher issues.

Q: Saved wifi/bluetooth connections don't work anymore, what to do?
A: Simply forget and reconnect wifi networks and/or re-pair bluetooth devices.

Q: Why is this kernel better than *&% kernel?
A: I never said it is and i also don't like to compare. You are the only that can decide if it is or not for your use.

Q: Why this kernel?
A: I made this kernel to disable samsung security and add few things for myself, since it went pretty well for me i decided to include it in the rom and release as separate too.

Q: Why samsung security disabled?
A: Samsung firmware and kernels are signed and made to get along eachother untampered. The second you change something (even only with rooting stock rom), that very moment security starts to spam in logs/operations which can result in lags/heats/freezes etc. Since we can't sign our roms/kernels as samsung, it`s better to disable security to avoid conflicts and ulterior issues.

Q: What's Moro Sound and how does that work?
A: It's an advanced sound control implemented first in S7 by @morogoku, which can be found in hKtweaks / MTweaks - sound section.
You can change the output gain for speaker(s) and headphones, and also the equalizer to one of the profiles inside, or to your very own profile according to your taste.
*I'm not responsable for any damage made by yourself on your phone/headphones/ears using too high values on this mod. If you are in doubt just leave it disabled or switch to other kernel.

Q: Why a separate tweaks app?
A: I made this app to properly maintain and adapt A5/A7 2017, your choice what app you want to use.

On this kernel TitaniumBackup can not see its copies on the SD card (rom @aliwaris).
Everything OK on the NX kernel.
