This rom is for both variants, that's why it's named G95XF... that normally only happens when using an old TWRP

Thanks, that makes sense. I wanted to double check myself as my wife has the S8 and I have the S8+ and we're trying to keep on the same rom so this is really useful.

Just to note, that I could not get device to encrypt after installing this rom - meaning - attempting to encrypt the device would result in failure message and necessity to wipe data. Only way to get encryption and root at the same time was to use stock rom, custom recovery, remove forced encryption, encrypt the device and then flash magisk, other root methods failed as well in one way or another.

As soon as you install TWRP you have to decrypt, otherwise you can't boot your phone anymore. When you install stock recovery after rooting, that may work

Some Questions & Thanks to Tkkg

First of all Thank you Tkkg for the great roms. I'm still using S7 with Superman and today I got my S8 in hand and will install Batman Rom for sure. ( I suggest every S8 owner to make some PayPal bucks to Tkkg. If you own an S8 you can donate some bucks too :D )

I have some questions before install Batman rom
1- Is v1.1.1. stable, I read all the articles and lots of guys mentioned about boot loop. (It seems that Stock kernel and mcregistry operations fix this problem, is it correct)
2- Will there be any update soon. I can wait a couple of days too for the new batman rom version.
3- Does Smart View working ?
4- I use SuperSu from the times that I use S3. With this Batman nougat rom, which one do you recommend Magisk OR Supersu
5- I use XTouchwiz and Xposed (For example to Hide Alarm Clock icon, disable airplane&bluetooth toggle popup, Disable loud volume warning, auto expand volume panel etc. ) Can I also use Xtouchwiz with Batman Rom. Or can I make these custom changes with Magisk
6- Do I lose warranty... :):) Just Kidding

Hey mate, thanks for your words!
Will answer your questions now, but you talk about batman rom, are you sure you wanted to post this in BatStock thread?

1. Yes it is stable, there is a problem with ext4 file system possibly caused by some other zips or strange formattings (haven't found the cause 100% surely)
2. Not planned right now
3. I don't have one, but no one reported it broken so :)
4. Magisk, it's much better
5. No Xposed for Nougat, sorry to tell you :(

Thank you for the answers.
I mixed up the batstock and batman rom you are right. Anyway you don't think to update batstock right now, I got that. So I'll install this batstock rom tomorrow. And inform about the result here.

Are you planning any batman rom soon by the way ?

Difference between BatMan-Rom V1.0.0 and BatMan-Rom V1.1.1

Hi Tkkg1994, sorry if it's a stupid question but why is there BatMan-Rom V1.0.0 released which is on a later date? is that the latest version?

I think you two guys mixed something up.
This here is BatStock-Rom.
Check the xda threads for the batman rom. It's two completly different things

Tkkg I thought that you didn't make any batman rom yet. But as you wrote you did. I found the topic. I'll install batman rom then. I like your custom roms.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I'll continue from that topic.

Hi. Not sure it's just me or not but I can't launch google assistant . It worked out of the box but not since I flashed this Rom. Any ideas??
Other than that this Rom is perfect.
Also any news on the Bluetooth fix. My car stereo won't display track info etc. Samsung said they were rolling out a fix which I assumed would be AQEB but it's still the same
Thanks

Hello! I have a rooted S8 running BatStock ROM, and have installed iYTB, which is an app for youtube that allows it to play while screen is off. However while listening to music on youtube, I have noticed that the videos stop a few(around 10) minutes after the screen has been turned off. When I turn the screen back on, the video is in buffering mode for a short while, even though the 4G symbol is always there, and then it starts playing again.

I am not sure what is happening but I assume there is a hidden battery saving feature that does this. Is there a way I can fix this?

Just to add - it says google assistant is not available on this device. ??
Yep it needs to be installed as a system app to work
Can you please update rom to the new firmware QF7?

Do you turn off battery optimization in battery and in app settings (there are 2 settings which both need to be off to keep it active while screen off)

Wipe, format data, type 'yes' reboot and fixed

    This rom is tested and working on SM-G950F/FD/N variants only! Do not try this on other variants without any backup!

    19.03.2017_Samsung_GalaxyPrices_teaser.jpg

    Installing this Rom will void warranty. Installing TWRP will trip knox to 0x1!

    Hey folks! I bet you know me from the S7/S7 Edge forums :D
    I did/I'm still doing some work there with the SuperStock-Rom (which is quite similar to this rom here on the S8 actually), or the probably most known Rom on the S7 edge: SuperMan-Rom. So, what's the aim of this rom? Trying to be as close to stock as possible with some nice modifications as: Always up to date, knox fake, auto updated bootloader/modem. You can check full feature list below!
    And why the name "BatStock-Rom"? I will do a custom rom (which has similar features to my SuperMan-Rom) with the name "BatMan-Rom" that's why. :)

    Rom Features V1.1.1:
    - Based on latest AQF7
    - Latest AQF7stock kernel and BatStock-Kernel
    - June security patch
    - SuperSU V2.82 SR1, Phh superuser or MagiskSU
    - Magisk v13
    - Rom is full ODEX for better speed
    - Gear VR working
    - Aroma installer
    - Debloat menu in aroma
    - sd card rw
    - dm-verity disabled
    - force encryption disabled
    - Auto model choose in script to flash right files
    - Auto update BL/CP for F/FD model aroma
    - iOS emojis
    - Knox 0x0 faked on running system
    - Safetynet pass


    Bugs:
    - You tell me

    HOW-TO Install the rom:
    0. Make sure you have ticked OEM Unlock in Developer settings and have a backup of your user apps!
    1. Download latest bootloader and modem from here:
    Bootloader/Modem

    2. Download latest odin
    3. Flash BL (bootloader) in BL tab and CP (modem) in CP tab of odin. Then follow the steps on this side until you get a working custom recovery: TWRP for S8 (to enter download mode, press power+bixby button+volume down)
    4. If you are done with bootloader, modem and recovery we can move on, boot into twrp holding power, bixby button and volume up while phone is powered off
    5. This will delete all your personal data! In TWRP recovery: Click on wipe, format data and type "yes"
    6. Wait until it is finished then click reboot, reboot to recovery
    7. Now connect your phone to PC and copy the rom file inside your internal or external sd card
    8. Flash the rom and wait until it is finished
    9. Reboot your phone and wait till it finished booting
    10. After you setup your phone, check if magisk/busybox got installed. If not install them from playstore

    Go get the G6 and regret it later. What kinda question is that may I ask?? You think we care what you get!! Totally disrespectful punk

    Thats kind of immature. He didn't ask for ETA or anything. Simply asked if we/the developer think it will be a custom kernel. You're the disrespectul punk here.
