Samsung is rolling out OTA update for n9208 - dual sim galaxy note 5 variant but not everyone is getting this, i know we all waited too long to get mm for n9208. Now wait is over, I did not want to share my work on xda anymore and at this stage not at all but many loyal IOIO users wanted to try IOIO asap and Samsung is taking too long to roll it out, so i jumped in to make you guys enjoy mm without any more waiting. i am also not finished with IOIO, i did not add many mods in it but a few simple ones. I will add them asap but for now changelogs are very short.

This is my first cutom rom for any Android device, so expect some bugs (may be major one's). These days, I am busy in other projects so i will add more mods whenever i will be free, as i need to learn from scratch! I cooked this rom for my personal use but thought i should share it, I am not promising anything but i will try my best to learn and add more mods in IOIO. I tested this twice on my phone and worked as intended, this may not work for you so please have backup ready to revert back.

Rom tested on

1. n9208 (Malaysian / Taiwan)
2. n920C - Nfc does not work, i am working on the fix (thanks to @FdeKlerk)

If you want to test the rom on other variants, please flash kernel of your variant after flashing the Rom.

Important

If you are facing problems with something using iOiO, do not expect i can fix it for sure. i am learning things i can or i will fail in fixing bugs, I need you guys to contribute and help each others. I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device, Flashing and using this rom is your own personal choice! Again, as this is my first rom, expect a lot of bugs and if you do not know what you are doing with your mobile or If you do not like this rom. Please use other any other rom. Please backup your EFS partition, data and device before going on, don't blame me, any other dev involved and rom. Simply i/we won't accept any blame.

How to Install

WARNING: Before Flashing rom, Please unregister your fingerprints, backup your data including internal storage

1. Download IOIO Rom, modem and bootloader.
2. Reboot in download mod, uncheck Auto-reboot option in odin and then Flash bootloader in odin (via AP section) (if not already on MM) or simply flash whole firmware via odin
3. Reboot in download mod again, uncheck Auto-reboot option in odin and then Flash Modem in odin (via AP section) (if not already on MM) or simply flash whole firmware via odin
4. Reboot in download mod again and then Flash TWRP in odin (via AP section) (if TWRP is not already installed)
5. Now Reboot Into TWRP Recovery and Wipe all partitions including internal storage. Format data option in twrp aka Factory Reset (if not already on MM)
6. Copy all the downloaded file(s) to usb otg, or adb files to device. Then flash the iOiO rom,
7. If your screen is stuck on initial galaxy note 5 screen (not the bootanimation) then please download and flash kernel manually as for some users a bug is preventing aroma script to flash kernel, i will fix it in next update. Thanks to @mafijas for reporting the issue
8. Reboot your phone and enjoy

Reporting bugs

Please do not report any issue without testing it on clean flash as most of the error occur because of dirty flash and developer can not cope up with these issues as they are individual dependent and developer can not reproduce it all the time. Thanks for your understanding, instead of solving these individual dependent issue, i can learn and implement new things in IOIO.

see in the build.prop there are few lines of code. Add in your build.prop and see if it makes any difference. I will be adding modified mixer gain files but in next release as this is a quick release as many users were interested in trying mm version as they did not get it from samsung and i did not work on many things.
