IronMan-Rom for the Note 8 is finally here with a dedicated thread :victory:

Hey guys! Here we are another time :)
Assuming that you already know me more or less, this rom is based upon latest Samsung Experience 9.0 (Android 8.0). I really love the Samung UI, that's why I work on those roms and not on AOSP such as LineageOS, I know I'm a little fanboy :D
Coming to the features, it's similar to the ones you'll find on my other roms such as BatMan-Rom (for the S8/S8+ and S7/S7e) or the SuperMan-Rom (for the S7/S7e) or even the EOL (End Of Life) HydraRom (for the glorious N7) :good:

The Rom itself contains many many custom features via RomControl, I'll list the most important ones below, still you are very welcome to try them all via the RomControl app (choosable in aroma). Now enough talking, wish you much fun flashing the rom and hope you'll enjoy it! :fingers-crossed:


Nobody is allowed to take stuff from my rom without asking me! Thank you.

IF YOU FOLLOW MY STEPS BELOW, YOU WILL MAY LOSE YOUR WARRANTY, KNOX WILL DISPLAY 0x1! I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGED DEVICE!

How to install the rom:
For advanced users:
0. Make sure to have a backup somewhere on external storage
1. Make sure to be on most recent TWRP, bootloader and modem
2. Flash the rom
3. If you need VoLTE or Wifi Calling, flash your correct carrier CSC
4. Done :highfive:

For normal users:
0. Boot your phone, enable OEM unlock in developer settings
1. Flash TWRP with Odin, following this thread Note 8 TWRP until it works correctly (to access download mode, press bixby+volume down+power on while phone is turned off)
2. Make sure you are using most recent bootloader and modem, latest one available here on Android File Host
3. Now boot into TWRP by pressing bixby+volume up+power on while phone is turned off
4. If TWRP asks you about allowing system to be edited, swipe yes to confirm
5. In TWRP, go to wipe, format data (a keyboard will pop up now), type "yes" (this will wipe all your data, make sure to have a backup!)
6. After this, reboot recovery and start the rom installer
7. Select your preferences in my aroma installer, make sure to chose NO ROOT for the first rom flash so dalvik-cache can be build properly!
8. If you selected to auto update bootloader in aroma, the installer will reboot automatically
9. You can still install my CSC selection if you are customer of a carrier which is not supported by default CSC inside the rom
10. Wait till the rom boots up
11. Go though the setup and boot back into twrp. Then flash your preferred root method in the recovery
12. After setting up, open IronControl Free and let the app apply my default settings!
13. Enjoy the rom!

so i installed b2, prior to this build and got the same experience so reverted to renovate., downloaded ur new rom today, clean flashed it, as soon as i try to restore my 29 apps from tibu, and reboot, the screen just flashes like crazy and i'm unablee to use the phone unlock it or do anything, same thing happened to b2.

I did remove that stupid 3minit battery app and it's resources apk. is that something to do with it? if so can we have a option in aroma not to have 3minit battery?
I did not remove anything else prior to restoring my own apps and rebooting.

On renovate when i do the same thing i do not experience the same result.

thanks in advanced tkkg1994

Edit: i also lost root as soon as i booted up, chose 14.5 magisk in aroma

If you remove 3minit = systemui crash. Why? The systemui relies on it, that's why we have the romcontrol to disable it. The apps don't run in the background, they don't use any space, nor ram, nothing. There is no reason to delete those apks. If you choose to have the stock UI you won't get them installed of course.

I explained once back on SuperMan why I will NOT make a separate systemui with/without 3minit and that will stay the same for now.

All issues related to magisk, please report to the magisk threads here

Another masterpiece from the Roger Federer of XDA, runs beautiful on N8, no issues, hope you can crack the CSC encryption in the future but you've pretty much nailed it so far, thanks for your work.

It's fairly common for FD devices that had the missing OEM unlock to lose root when using magisk in initial flashes, doesn't appear to me they know why.

What does that mean???

Good luck finding a ROM (official or custom) that doesn't have stuff you don't want in it, if you want such a ROM then develop your own.

This Dev is one of the best so seeing that comment is insulting.

He makes it quite clear that the settings are disabled in ROM Control and with them disabled they have no influence on the system whatsoever.

Your loss in skipping this ROM, one of the best in my opinion.

He's on an timer'ed FD, folks facing a week in jail have to be careful. It's got nothing to do with the rom or the developer, it's about staying alive.

Tried the beta. Love this rom very much. Quick and smooth. Unfortunately, I am also on an FD. Was jailed 7 days when I was on the beta, blamed it on myself for my carelessness but this OEM thingy is my phobia. Agreed with you, it's about staying alive for FD users:D.

Does OEM unlock appears after installing this Rom?

Was in the beta. the OEM unlock was hidden. I've already downloaded this stable version. Have yet to install. On reserve mode and ready to go anytime after better understanding in this discussion. You know our fingers are always itchy to try more even if we already know that FD is always at risk. That's the spirit ya?;)

Installed it 1 day ago... and what do u think, u can u expect from a ROM with initial Release...
Well, I must say, this is my ROM. It's so feature rich packed with useful mods. Till now runs smooth and stable.
Aroma installation guides you through wipe options, debloating and feature. I am really impressed. I found my daily driver...

Finally I got a suggestion. There is still the problem with appearance of OEM-Unlock Toggle for many N8 users.
Most Custom ROMs hide this toggle. Isn't it possible to show the toggle and its status and just disable it, instead of hideing?

    Due to the EOL (End of Life) state of this rom I'm going to close the thread.

    Does this mean it's the end of the support? NO it doesn't!

    There is a generic Telegram Chat if you wish to keep on discussion issues and problems.

    If you look for a forum based solution, the note 8 forums on grifodev will be opened as long as the website exists. If you got an issue, open a thread and I'll help you there! :good:

    In the case you don't know why I'm leaving the development:
    The time I can spend on android gets less and less in the future. I don't have the capacity to develop for so many different devices, hence I will call all roms (not only this one) EOL except the one I use as daily driver (which is currently the S9+). Fun fact: since I have so many devices supported, I did not even got time yet to start working on the S9/S9+ rom lol :D

    Anyway, maybe we see each other again in the Note 9 forum, who knows?

    Was a great time with you, thanks for all the support and motivation you guys gave me! I really appreciate that.

    With love, Luca <3 :victory:

    Happy Holidays!

    Hey guys/girls, dear followers and readers of this chat :)

    The end is near, the end of this year I mean not of my development, I hope I haven't shocked you too much with the first few words :D

    I just wanted to give you some kind of an overview of the development, I will post the same thing on all my rom threads, as it matches all of them.

    My plans are as following:
    Start working again on the rom updates after christmas/new year. I also got some finals around january/february so I can't tell you yet how much time I'll get there to work on android things.

    In general: I'll start to release rom updates with the Januar 2018 security patch base, that's at least the plan :good:

    In the meantime I wish all of you very nice holidays (I really hope you got at least some free days...), nice time with your family, an awesome christmas party (in case you celebrate) and hopefully many nice little presents for you :fingers-crossed:

    Love you all, you're an awesome community! :victory:

    The issue with oreo and full deodexed roms:
    I don't know if you heard about that problem but oreo roms have problems with building dalvik-cache when the rom is fully deodexed. Hence the rom lags and is damn slow all over the place unless you use odex framework. I have patched the sepolicy for this purpose and it works fine BUT (and that's the main problem):
    Magisk does replace this patched sepolicy. What does this mean for you as user?
    My suggestion is to flash the rom without any root method installed. Then boot your device one time and set up your phone. In this first boot, the dalvik-cache could be built with this patched sepolicy file in the kernel.
    When you are finished, go back to TWRP, simply flash magisk root and you are good to go. Now slowdowns, nothing.
    I'm sure many people won't follow my advice here and face the laggy system. Please help them with this answer here, thank you dear readers :good:

    What else is important to know:
    This rom update will be the last one from my side. I don't know if someone else will continue the project or not, this isn't up to me. Why I will stop you may ask yourself now.
    Well, I have supported several devices over the last few years and one thing was always the same back then: I had time. A lot of time. This has changed now mainly over the last year (I mean, when did any update from my side took so long like this one? Exactly, never ^^). I can't spend much time anymore on android due to the university and my job. If I could manage it somehow I loved to keep on developing... :(

    I will let this thread open for some days/weeks and then close it. Of course you are always very welcome to post on www.grifodev.ch (nothing will be closed there).

    As mentioned above, the BatControl Pro is now fully compatible with this rom as well. Sadly our designer has a similar fat as me and was never able to finish his design with the IronControl Pro... hence I couldn't release it. If you still want to support / have the pro app get it from here. Features are exactly the same as in the free app, I suggest you to check out the app on the store and decide for yourself if you need it or not :) :fingers-crossed:
