It's nice to have rom 9.0 for galaxy s6 edge + sm-g928t I can't wait for this

To go into deeper detail on the ROM, I used Lineage 16.0 20180901 s6 build modified for the s6 found here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...20x-5x-nexusos-9-0-samsung-galaxy-s6-t3843199

It was also based on NexusOS kernel that has been modified, so a big shout out to Team Nexus for the kernel and rom, and to @lukasb06 for porting it to s6.
The original kernel was by Team Nexus for s6 and s6e

Kernel Features;


v2.0: first support Pie on s6e+ and n5
change log:
support N5-s6e+ (ready for daily usage)
bug: BT, GPS, NFC

deep sleep fixed, init.d support, dyninteractive and a lot of kernel code changed.

the kernel can be found at :
https://github.com/TeamNexus/android_kernel_samsung_exynos7420?files=1


**I have made some modifications, added a shim, added code to the init.rc to disable p2p wifi. Moving forward the modifications to the kernel will be done by myself.

Please read and follow the instructions :

New zip uploaded for November. Each month has its own folder
This is not fully functional yet but it is close, no Bluetooth, no NFC. the two buttons next to home don't work yet(a couple of temporary solutions below)
BACK UP YOUR CURRENT ROM! especially efs. Some people have ril issues, I noticed my imei changed. A quick efs restore fixed it and my sim worked again.



The home button can be set to double tap for recent apps and use opera browser for compensation of no back button as they have their own, or download back button from play store to add floating buttons to screen. Some versions have buttons pre installed.

I can get bluetooth not to crash, but it doesn't connect.
Wifi Hotspot not working.

Now that the bad is out of the way.

Install Instructions Below:

The call audio and WiFi works, camera works(lower res for video to 1080), magisk is working but apk requires manual apk install, audio works, headphones, video, gapps, everything I have tried besides the above is OK.

The install is a process, first flash the ROM, then the pie fix, then no NFC, and then flash the boot.
Img and start the ROM. set your WiFi and take a look around, give it a moment to run). After first boot, reboot to twrp and flash gapps. If you do it all at once gapps crash sometimes. Once you have this all set up and good to go then add magisk.
9.0SeptSecurity is a different version from the august security not just in the sense that the security patch is different, but also the august build is N920 where the September build is G920F. One is from a note one from s6. It is possible one might resolve a bug that is in the other for your device, i am honestly not sure. different people report different bugs on the same device. If bluetooth does happen to be in one of the zips it will likely crash a lot. remove it via twrp by mounting system and then going to system/app and delete the bluetooth and bluetoothmidi folders.

The reason for lowering rear camera to 1080p for video is that it gets buggy at the 4k default.

A big thank you to NexusOS and LineageOS for their 9.0 lineage 16.0 s6 ROM which I used as a base to port this to our device!
i would also like to thank @topjohnwu for Magisk.
And @MirzaAwais for the Pie fix zip

New Multirom for note 5 and s6e+

It's a bit slow for the first little bit while setting up and whatnot, but once you get everything running it works fine. You can use kernel auditor if you find your battery is dying a little too fast.

I am VERY open to suggestions and or help with this, as it is my goal to fix the bugs and have a fully working 9.0 for our device. The buttons are a priority for me.

To briefly summarize: you sacrifice the back button, pages button, and Bluetooth and get 9.0. Everything else works. I've got viper4android going via magisk, the audio fx work. The ROM has a LOUD volume. So if you like music, enjoy. The back button/page has a work around(most apps have a back button), and you can get an app from play store called back button which gives you the home, back and recent button as tiny floating screen icons also, in the meantime. so just bluetooth really. Use modified cam perm boot shim.img

Enjoy :)

Boa noite, Pessoal!
Possuo um S6 EDGE PLUS (SM-G928G) e procuro um excelente android 9.0 que, comandando a câmera do whatsapp e fazendo ligações normalmennte, essa rom está com algum problema antigo antigo anteriormente (se não, quais são os problemas)?
No aguardo de um retorno.

I have an S6 EDGE PLUS (SM-G928G) and looking for an excellent android 9.0 that, running the whatsapp camera and making normal calls, this rom has some old problem previously (if not, what are the problems)?
I am waiting for a return.

Check the link in my post from 3 or 4 responses back. That one has been my daily rom for a long period without any issues.



This project hasn't been updated in a long while. So don't expect it to be error less.
