# 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 ;)

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...

If you want in German I can send you an strings.xml and you can translate it, then all mods will be in German too. Just PM me.

RAM bar you r right it's little down, I will fix it on next release, don't worry.

Thanks for your ROM and Rom control.
After installation on my S8-fd, I have to play with Magisk manager and enable permission, after that can start Rom control. Then, no root, and installed Magisk 16.4, enable System ui permision for Superuser. After that, reboot menu worked.
But, still can not enable OEM unlock. What to do?

The Magisk "fight" are explained on the FAQ, but well, u made it working.

OEM unlock, the ROM contains RMM patch so u shouldn't have that problem. All my testers never faced problems with that so.... i'm not sure what happened.

Gear vr and Dex working? What about people with OEM issues?

Gear VR are tested, DEX I don't have, but I don't removed anything related, so it will work.

OEM as I said, have RMM patch so it shouldn't have any problem.

Hello Deluxe Team
I have flashed this Rom right now to test it and what should i say? Wow. It feels really fast! I have seen the animations in developer options are set to 0.5 but also with default settings 1.0 it feels still really fast. Amazing.
Only 1question. You also have debloat the setup wizard (or something was going wrong on my end)? After first boot i can't set up my phone with wifi, Google account, Samsung account, Google assistant etc. to restore all my apps and settings. It's a bit awkward to restore all that stuff later manually.
Flashed on my note 8, clean installation with DBT CSC (Germany) and SuperSU.

    Best rom out there for the S8! The only issue that I'm having is that I can't install Revolut from the play store or restore it. Other banking apps work, just revolut is messing up. What could the issue be?
    Try Magisk Canary Build. It has worked for me in the past. Also make sure the folder TWRP is deleted in your device's internal memory. Some root-dependant apps can also mess up with root detection. If you have apps like titanium backup, xplore file manager, try after uninstalling these apps.

    Thanks a lot for the reply! I tried everything but it still doesn't work. The only apps I have that are similar to titanium backup and others is Swift Backup, which I uninstalled. I'll try some more, i don't know. Thanks again! :)
    Did you clear cache of Revolut after uninstalling swift backup? And make sure you reboot the device, untick-retick the Revolut app in magiskhide list. Now, make sure TWRP, Swift Backup folders are deleted from your device's root folder. Then try the app.
