Generally speaking, it will be the ROM, and hence there are 3rd party apps. However, gestures such as "double-tap to wake", require kernel specific features. It would be best if you specifically list which gesture you are asking about.

Features that only have a purely "software" function are built-in/enabled in the ROM(system.img)

Features that utilize hardware in the device in some manner to provide the feature are built-in/enabled in the kernel(the kernel is actually usually baked in the system.img but is separate from the "ROM").

I just wanted to get basic android, but it seems like ASOP GSIs are way too basic with no features being added ig. Imma search for smthing else then. Thank you for your replys.

Maybe you might try some from this repository https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/gsi/ of those that I tried HOS and OOS include some nice gestures and they just have some minimal tweaks over AOSP without mentioning Miui or Samsung that also have but they´re very different from the original source.

You need to be more specific. What do you mean "not working backup method"?

Any of them potentially can boot on your device but it needs to meet some minimal requirements that you have to take in account.

here you have a basic reading to better comprehension of https://www.xda-developers.com/flash...treble-device/ and also you will find some links to forum for devices that you have to compare with the yours and investigate what you´d need to fix in order to achieve your goal.

Here other huge repository with some roms that I know that have what you´re looking for like Evolution, Havoc, AospExtended and a great etc of "OSs" https://github.com/phhusson/treble_e...%28GSI%29-list

And here a specific guide with the steps to can succesfully boot a device that could be applied in almost any device, be warned that this is an image for an AB device but from those mods that I know; "permissiver v5" would match with your device https://gist.github.com/TheGabrielHo...474bbbc714a34d

Hi everyone, first I'd like to thank all those on here that know what they're doing and willing to help out the newbies

Ok so here's my situation

I bought a used V30 LS998 from Amazon and I'm thinking of rooting it

Being new to rooting there's a lot of information to sort through and absorb

This phone will be my daily use phone so stability is important

The problem I'm having is the multitude of options, i haven't done anything yet (including the OTA update my V30 wants to do, it's currently on march of 2018 software) and I've read a handful of how to guides, i guess I'm looking for an experienced guide to point out pros and cons

I know being a sprint customer i want to keep my phone a LS988 for the LTE bands (i would lose 1 our 2 switching to US988 software)

So my question is what would the people with experience recommend? I was looking at havoc Rom because of the options for performance gains but found little information on havoc on the V30 specificly and not sure I'm able to control the gain or loss of bands (things change quickly and some of the threads go back awhile) i was also looking at JohnFawkes guide to installing 30a firmware which seems fool proof and i still have the options of downloading whatever root apps i want to accomplish my own goals, so am i missing anything?

I'm humbly asking to be schooled here

I'm not concerned with Google pay and i can take or lose Netflix but I'd like the strongest signal possible and want my text, data and calls to work consistently
I do play clash of clans consistently and don't want anything to make that not work

My other issue being i don't even own a computer my kids have them for school but I'd like to use them as minimally as possible, i know at the very least it's necessary initially but what about later changes?

OP Junior Member2 postsThanks: 0

In quite urgent need of help. Got 2 Galaxy S8+ phones here. I am in Australia. Australian Galaxy S8+ Model I have is the G955F, the other model which I think is USA is a G955U1 or UI I think. It was sold on eBay as an Australian model and I don't think it is after doing some research.

I have noticed that when putting the sim card in the Australian model it shows up on the top bar as '4G' for the network and on speedtest I get a down link rate of 94 mbps.

With the American model I use the same sim card which shows up as LTE instead of 4G and when doing a speedtest I get a rate of 20 mbps.

Bit frustrated about this as it seems it is not able to get the full use out of the frequences here in Australia which is affecting signal, calls and network.

As you lot seem very clued up on this can I ask if you know a fix? Software wise or hardware? Without having to replace the actual mobo and phone.

Thanks
