Thanks a lot for this great rom!
As some others before in this thread, I cannot install Revolut, neither from the Play Store, nor restore it from my Titanium Backup. Looks like there's a kernel compatibility issue. Was anyone able to solve it?
Thanks!

This is the ROM that suits me the most I think.
However trying to enable Secure Wi-Fi in Advanced Wi-Fi Settings makes the Settings app crash and close.
Other than that it's a really good ROM. Shame we can't get all these features on Android 11.
edit: I forgot to mention, you can actually encrypt the phone with this ROM. A huge selling point for me.
another edit: Google Pay doesn't work with V29 and the 16.8 Kernel, no root. Any way to get it to work without using root?

Hello guys,
I have updated (no Clean install) fron V28 to V29.

Loudspeaker very quiet when making calls. I have to make a call using the hands-free function, otherwise I can't hear anything. What can be the problem? No problem with the V28. Kernel Problem? thanks

Hallo! I lost the original stock-rom backup due to a dead USB drive, now I have an IMEI nummer written on the back of my phone but otherwise it is UNKNOWN and I cannot use the phone for making calls ...

Is there a way to restore the IMEI without a backup? Help would be very appreciated!
THANKS in advance!

EDIT: Why am I posting this in this thread: I clean-installed DELUXE ROM v29, had a bad standby battery drain problem. To get rid of that I restored a previous backup of v28.1 I kew worked. In between lost the IMEI ...

    I don't think I have ever gotten choked up before for something like this, but I did this time. You are an inspiration to the whole dev community! I don't ever hardly post anything but felt obligated to do so. I have been a member for over 4 years and due to an accident that left me a partial quadriplegic I have taken to the mobile repair field and have learned the majority of the total process from reading and studying XDA (and a lot of trial and error). Anyways, there is one more thing that the Note 8 family will miss from v30 besides security updates, and that's you. Thank you for your dedication and thank God I have an A20! Lol

    Dear @AbrahamGC ,

    For a while, I've been expecting this sad but inevitable word, "FINAL". Your ROM is one of the most stable and definitely the longest updated among the Note 8 ROMs. I haven't been looking forward to v30 because your ROM did not need an update, and has always been problem-free. Every good thing must come to an end, but v30 should be good enough to keep using Note 8 for a few more years now. The only thing most people will miss would be the security updates.

    Thank you for all your time and effort Abraham!

    You brought my S8 to life for all these years and without you it wouldn't have been the same.

    # 1 - Introduction

    Hi! Welcome to Android Pie DeluxeROM® for exynos8895!

    This ROM is compatible with N950F/FD/N, G955F/FD/N and G950F/FD/N.

    At this point you should already know this, but just in case... Installing a custom ROM requires TWRP, and installing a modified binary such as TWRP, will increase our knox timer to 0x1, restricting us to use most of the knox features and without a way to reset it. With this custom ROM, we'll get most of the features back, keep reading ;)

    WARNING : WE DON'T TAKE RESPONSABILITES WITH WHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR DEVICE.

    FAQ

    DO NOT REPORT BUGS OR TRY TO GET ASSISTANCE WHILE USING MODDED VERSIONS USUALLY MADE BY KANGERS LIKE @mpal AND OTHER 4PDA MEMBERS.

    - What's dual statusbar (DSB) ?
    + The mod consists on duplicate the statusbar size and unlock more "positions" on "Statusbar views position" on DRC. This will give us more space to place our views like carrier, network speedmeter, batteries, icons, etc ...

    - How can I activate dual statusbar ?
    + Once you flashed the ROM, you have a zip on the internal memory called DUAL_SB. This zip will detect which statusbar you have and change it. So it's valid too to revert dual to single.

    - Why the statusbar custom background takes some time to be shown after a reboot ?
    + This happens only with images (not colors nor gradient), and it have a reason, when the device is booting, the UI can't access to your internal memory (for security reasons), so, when the mod tries to load the image, it fails. On the past this give us a headache with force-closes and not showing images. Now it simply will load it when the system sends the flag BOOT_COMPLETED. How much time it takes ? Not much really, from 10 seconds up to 1:30min.

    - Where I can find backgrounds that fits with dual statusbar ?
    + We added a folder on your internal memory called DLX_BGS with more than 50 designs. If is not enough, you can always use any other image...

    - Why I can't enter to the sub-screens on DRC ?
    + The statusbar views have a "master" preference called "Icons hidden", ALL the icons picked here won't be visible on the statusbar and the sub-screens will be disabled (why would we edit preferences without show the view ?). Don't forget to un-hide before edit them.

    - DRC needs root and busybox to work ?
    + No. ONLY the kernel configurations needs root and busybox (both).

    - I need mTweaks to configure DeluxeKernel ?
    + NO. You have a screen on DRC to configure it, so, don't use other apps while you're on this kernel.

    - I switched to permissive but it doesn't change.
    + First of all check root and busybox, if they are ok wait few minutes. Sometimes magisk is slow to grant the root. This applies to all kernel configurations.

    - I rebooted and I'm again on enforcing SELinux.
    + The boot is always with the default values, and as the statusbar, when the flag BOOT_COMPLETED is sent, kernel configurations are applied.

    - If I flash another kernel, will DRC override kernel configurations ?
    + No, if is not the kernel provided, DRC won't show you the preferences related and won't apply them, so you can still using the app provided (usually) with the kernel.

    - Double tap to wake doesn't works as expected with AOD.
    + Known issue, but no solution for now. (AOD have already a double tap to wake with the home button without press it, maybe is enough with it ;) )

    - What's the "Fingerprint wake-on" exactly ?
    + I made it thinking on the S7 where the user needs to press the button to wake-up the screen, but is good for us if we don't want to wast battery with the sensor. If it's disabled, fingerprint stills working, but won't wake up the device.

    More questions when I get free...
