Announcement from ananjaser1211: Bringing the forbidden fruits Samsung prevents us from.
Welcome to Floyd Port For the Exynos7420 Series

Some information you should know..
  • This is a full Note7Fe port with android version 9.0
  • If you want to report a Bug, read the F.A.Q First Then provide a logCat OR with detailed explanation
  • Read the instructions and the F.A.Q Before installing the rom or posting a reply.
  • You are not allowed to use this base, if you want to make rom, "DIY"
  • Any sort of File Kanging will be reported without hesitation.
  • If you like this rom and appreciate my efforts, Hit the Thanks button, and consider a donation

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.

Good idea to read this F.A.Q While the rom is installing


1- Rotation can act in a weird way. blocking the front camera does help
2- S6 kernel does not feature CPU/GPU UV/OC controls due to issues
3- MiUi camera will only work if you go to app settings > permissions and enable all perms
4- Stock camera is laggy. to use it you must turn the phone to landscape. it only takes back camera photos and videos under promode

Q : XYZ is also laggy help plez
A : It helps to set GPU policy to ALWAYS_ON in hkTweaks and disable thermal control
And change CPU governor to BioShock and GPU governor to STATIC

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 : How to use stock samsung camera ?
A : You shouldnt, if you insist, rotate the phone to landscape and open the camera, then swipe to proMode. you can then take photos and videos 80% of the time.
P.S : Any photos that are taken will not appear in the phone gallery until a reboot

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 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 : GoodLock apps cant be used. not available in store
A : Download MarketUnlockerPro from somewhere and use it to update the apps officially

Q : I dont have root help plez
A : Install Latest Magisk V19

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 CandyCamera or Snapchat

Q : Does googlecamera,Stockcamera work ?
A : No. and unlikely that it will be fixed

-- 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 ?
A : With some tests and some cycles, it will be better than stock due to optimzations
