Announcement from ShaDisNX255: Finally released this xD
NcX S8+ Port

So I'm finally sharing this ROM lol.
A lot of the people that are in my Telegram group already knew about this ROM from long ago. I just felt lazy to upload it to xda. And now I feel bad about it xD
Because if I do say so myself, it is my best work.
Yes, it's still Oreo. Right now, porting Pie to Pie seems to be difficult-impossible due to some deodexing stuff and such, son don't expect me to try to port anything related to Pie (specially because I am not a huge fan over OneUI. I'd take Samsung Experience's looks over it any day
Well, with that said. Here is what you can expect from this ROM

Code:
Your warranty is now void. 
* We are 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 flashing this zip file
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if 
* you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. HARD!

Features!
  • Fully ported S8+ ROM
  • Deodexed
  • Heavily debloated
  • Zipaligned
  • Very Optimized
  • Bike Mode
  • Aroma installer (Very few features at the moment)
  • Multiple kernels
  • Modded Screen record
  • Floating Messages
  • Scroll Capture
  • Edge Panels
  • Edge Lighting
  • Native blur
  • Pop-off multi-window for more than 2 windows at the same time
  • Smart select
  • Dolby Atmos
  • Bixby Vision in screenshots and camera
  • Fixed smart view and mobile hotspot (thanks to @ananjaser1211)
  • Secure Folder (Flash the zip here and read instructions to enable it: Secure Folder Fix)
  • And stock J6 stuff

Bugs!
  • It's been so long since I created this ROM I honestly forgot what small issues this ROM had, but I don't remember anything major. Please report if you find anything

Changelog!
  • 21/06/19: Release

Links!


Instructions!

-Create full backup before trying
-Wipe system, data, cache and dalvik
-Install ZIP via TWRP
-Select either Phoenix kernel or stock kernel with Magisk ONLY
-If you want to use Oxygen Kernel, you have to install stock kernel first and let it boot for the first time. Then, do a dirty flash and select Oxygen Kernel and it will boot
-Let it boot for aprox 20 minutes
-Once booted, select language in start up screen and reboot the phone twice
This is done to remove lag due to being rooted with Magisk
-Complete setup

Credits!

FAQ
  • [Q] My phone is stuck in bootloop/infinite boot, what should I do?
  • [A] It is normal for first instalation to take aprox 10-20 minutes on first boot, let it sit for a little bit
  • [Q] Even after 20 minutes, my phone is still in a bootloop/infinite boot, what can I do?
  • [A] It is possible that your previoius Android setup is conflicting with this new setup. Please, do the following:
    • 1. FORMAT DATA (not WIPE, FORMAT!)
    • 2. Try the instalation of NcX again
  • [Q] My phone will still not boot, what is my last resort?
  • [A] Please do the following:
    • Re-install NcX
    • After installation finishes, select "Save Logs"
    • It will save a .txt file in your memory, please post so I can review your problem
  • [Q] I've found a bug, what should I do
  • [A] Please read the "Bugs" section of the thread to see if your bug has been reported, if it hasn't, please let me know exactly what the problem is so I can take a look
  • [Q] My phone isn't rooted, even though I selected a root method
  • [A] Please make sure you root via Magisk. SuperSU is only there for testing and did not work.
  • [Q] The phone is going way too slow!
  • [A] Caused by Magisk. Just reboot the phone 2 or 3 times and the lag will be gone forever.
  • [Q] Something bothers me and I want it fixed/changed
  • [A] Please, kindly make a request and if it's within my grasp, I'll try to fix it. Just, don't be rude and demand something. Either that or return to stock, your choice :P

How to report a bug/Ask for a change


Over the small amount of time I've been doing my edits and shared them with the community, I've noticed something that seems to irritate me. I can't speak for all the developers on this forum, but I do edits/ROMs/PORTs/etc... to what I like. I don't work for anybody else but me. I share my work because it may have something of value to other people and/or some people may share the same taste as me on regards to what they want on a ROM.

That being said, that doesn't mean I will completely ignore what the community has to say.

First and foremost, it must be said, I am merely a beginner. I do not claim to be a professional developer that knows how to add everything, I am nowhere close and I learn as I go.

There are ways to ask for something and/or report a bug when it comes to ROMs, and this post is my attempt to try to explain how to (and how not to) report a bug in order to help me out as much as possible to try to fix something

You can also ask for something to be added, but there are also ways to ask for something


So, here we go

Keep in mind:
  • I do not add stuff that can easily be downloaded from the Playstore
  • I, myself, don't do kernel edits
  • I COULD remove stuff if NOBODY uses it



---REPORTING BUGS---


How NOT to report a bug:
  • "SystemUI (or any app)is crashing, please help!"
  • "Instagram doesn't allow me to edit my post, what could be wrong?"
  • "My bank account app is not letting me do such thing"
These posts are sort of pointless as they only state something but I have no context on what could be causing it. Also, I can't really control (for the most part) third-party apps, so if you're going to ask about them this way, don't even bother

A slightly better way to report a bug:
  • "I clean installed the ROM and was working fine, after I installed Facebook and logged in, I immediately uploaded a photo and SystemUI started to crash. Can you look in to it?"
  • "I tried to install Black Neon theme (a link to it would work as well) and it was working fine until I tried to activate AOD (or anything else for some reason) and SystemUI (or any other app) is crashing, could you look in to it?"
  • "My bank account app doesn't let me take a screenshot of my accounts. I get a toast notification saying "Can't take screenshot due to security policy"
As you can see, this provides a bit more context and explanation on your current situation. This gives me a little more detail on trying to replicate the problem and hopefully could fix it by replicating it. Well, except for point #3 which is out of my hands for the most part (I think). If you include what kernel you're using would make everything better! Also any significant change that would require root (like xposed and or anything that modifies /system also needs to be informed for better results)

The BEST way to report a bug:
  • LOGCAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please learn the ins and outs of a logcat, this really helps a lot on finding what the problem is. Also, please give a brief explanation as the above examples when providing a log cat








---ASKING FOR STUFF TO BE ADDED---


How NOT to ask for stuff:
  • On your next update, add iris scanner
  • You should add (app) on your next update
  • Hey, please add (app or feature) on your next update
No, I do not work for you. Even if you say please like the third example, that doesn't mean you're being polite. It still sounds like an order lol so you should probably rephrase your request.

How to ask for stuff to be added to my work:
  • Would you be so kind to add (feature) to your ROM, if possible?
  • Would it be possible to add this app to your ROM?
  • Please, can you add (feature) to your ROM, if it isn't much to ask?
See how politeness makes everything better? You're not demanding it, you're just politely asking to see if maybe it is within my grasp to add something. And if all request would be like this, I can assure you I'd try my best to add said feature






I hope this is useful to you or I at least hope that some people read it.
If not, I can just tell you to return to stock ROM, probably better than any ROM I put out anyway :P
