I have a problem with Stock Camera. I recognized it in v1.0 and also v1.1, both with Full Wipe Installation.
When I press and hold the Shutter Button down, the Camera doesn't create multiple shoots.
I was not sure if this feature exist on Note8, but I tested Dr.Ketans ROM and Burst Mode works fine for the Camera.
Can someone confirm that multiple shoots is not working for stock camera or is it something with my Phone?

Edit:
Both Camera apk's (IronROM 1.1 and Ketan N5) have the same version, but different size.

Hello, i need CSC with VoLTE, VoWIFI and ID Spam activated... Wich CSC to choose in the options IronMan Rom?

Thanks
VoWifi, VoLTE will only work on your carriers csc.. not on any other one!
Thanks for reply I actually dirty flash but I had backup first rebooted oem unlock was still there but after flashing the update Rom it went away. Can you consider in the future not to auto reboot when flash the Rom. Thanks

The csc was updated in this release (to BQK6). It can easily be that samsung removed the oem unlock for more csc files.

There is no auto reboot in aroma, only if you choose to update the bootloader during the installation. It's even written there that the phone will auto reboot...
Guys, I REALLY need some help.

I liked Batman ROM on my S7 edge and now I want try Ironman on my Note 8.

Although I have been flashing custom recoveries, ROMs and kernels since my Galaxy S2 , I am ashamed to admit that I have already tried to flash TWRP and Ironman about 3 times and each time when I boot the phone I am in Samsung jail again. Tomorrow ( after 28 days) , I´ll have OEM unlock again.

Can anyone *please* send me a guide (as in "the guide for the most stupid newbie in xda" ) on how to flash Iromman correctly on my Note 8 ?

I have done a lot of research and gathered information on various threads and my plan is to reproduce these steps:

1 Download TWRP, verity, magisk or super SU, the rom of your choice that does not hide the OEM unlock toggle
2 Transfer those files to a micro SD card.
3 Remove your sim(s) and insert the micro SD.
4 Go into developer and verify that your OEM switch is visible and in the on position. If it is not visible do not proceed until you have it.
5 Shut down the phone.
6 Boot into downloader by holding vol down/bix/power
7 Open odin and place the TWRP tar in AP
8 Connect the phone
9 Place your mouse curser over the start button on odin but DO NOT start it.
10 Press and hold the vol up/bix/power and do not release them until the entire flash is done and you are in TWRP.
11 While holding thse buttons use a spare finger to press the mouse button which you already placed over start in odin. The flash will go by quickly.
12 You are now in TWRP, swipe right to allow modification.
13 Select wipe.
14 Select format.
15 Type yes.
16 Go back to main menu and select reboot menu.
17 Select REBOOT RECOVERY, do not go to system.
18 When back in TWRP after rebooting recovery select wipe at main menu.
19 Do a factory reset.(= Wipe data, cache, and dalvik)
20 Go back to main menu.
21 Select install.
22. Flash the verity and encryption disabler.
23. Go back to main men.
24. Select wipe.
25 Do a factory reset.(= Wipe data, cache, and dalvik)
26 Go back to main menu.
27 Select install.
28 Choose either magisk or SU to flash and install it.
29 Go back to main menu
30 Select wipe
31 Do a factory reset.
32 At main menu select install and flash your rom IF IT DOES NOT include any lower level flash for the BL, CP etc.
33 Go back to main menu
34 Select wipe.
35 Factory reset. (= Wipe data, cache, and dalvik)
36 Reboot into system. You should be able to connect your wireless network and go through the setup process. Do not reboot until you have completed setup, enabled developer options, verified that you have an OEM unlock switch and that it is on. If it is on you should be able to reboot, go into recovery, etc. You should not flash a CSC, kernal, anything that alters the lower level firmware.


Anyone has a better idea ???

And if this suceeds, how do I flash new BL, MODEM, CSC, Kernels with going back to jail?

****PLEASE HELP !!!!**** ( I can NOT wait 7 more days)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! :good::good::good::good:
I'm sorry that I can't give you much informations about this. I'm still reading up on articles and trying to understand how this works after all as I wasn't affected.

Please discuss the oem unlock related topics in the OEM thread. Thank you!

It seems like more and more cscs are added to have the 7 days waiting period. One csc which works till now (even on BQK6 csc) is the AUT csc. Works from day zero (OEM unlock is always there)

Someone just needs to find a way to decrypt those csc files to check which line is related to this...

So in regards to editing the cscfeature.xml to bring back caller id spam protection and other features missing when choosing DBT unbranded (TMB isn't an option in csc list so), i get garbled text and my ability to edit it is sabotaged, @Tkkg1994 plz include the option for "keep your csc" or re-enable these missing features. Thanks


Otherwise does anyone else have any ideas on fixing the garbled text in cscfeature.xml?

I did a look in the manual and it should be available on stock Note8 camera.
The photoseries does not work for me, when I press and hold the shutter button.

I don't get point 10 and 11 nor why you wanna wipe and format so many times.

For point 10 if you're already in download mode then why do point 10 again ?
I didn't do that I just went to download mode and flashed then rebooted into recovery and did the reset then flashed the disabled then wiped and flashed a custom Rom.

OEM is a slap in the face. I can't say much about OEM as I got my phone from Sammy.
As I understand it only people that got their phones from a SIM provider are suffering.

Seems like someone wants to turn android into Apple type of restriction I see it slowly being introduced in each version.

My list goes on but no time to type any more.

@Tkkg1994, you were right. It was probably corrupted file that created my issues.

Quick question, after restore of google and samsung backup, some apps do not appear in apps list. However if i search in the apps it finds them. E.g. viber, whatsapp. Any suggestion how to fix that?

The problem is as soon as you do a factory reset the timer is reset and your bootloader gets locked after the first boot. And if you reboot again within the 7 days and you don't unlock it again you'll run into the unverified binaries issue and get stuck in boot loop. And it's not a good idea to do a dirty flash when coming from another ROM (crashes etc)

Hey mate i really love your Roms you release. I got my N950F XSA (Australia Unbranded) Note 8 and waited the 7 days for OEM Unlock to show. I then immediately Flashed TWRP & Renovate Rom and it was going great with no Binary issues for over 2 weeks. I then decided to flash your Rom with the modded settings aswell & flashed your CSCUtility for Note 8 and phone booted successfully after installation. Went through the whole phone setup etc. Installed all my apps back. I then ran enabled Adaway end rebooted the phone. Then the dreaded 'Only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed' message. I then had no other choice but to flash back to stock Rom with Odin and am now in the 7-day jail period. I don't know what went wrong.

Also wandering if anyone else has OEM Lock=Off in download mode but doesn't show up in Dev options?

I am in the exact same boat as you. used Renovate since release day to today, i flashed iron rom, booted fine ands et up, then rebooted and got the red error message. now i just flashed stock :( how did you go ?

which one did you flash? the most current one I've uploaded is 7c, I have not tried it on top of an F-based ROM, but it doesn't overwrite the IMS Settings app, and the epdg stuff is all from an N950F in the first place so that shouldn't have any impact at all on a 950F-based ROM.

You might want to try clearing cache and dalvik cache, but I can't think off the top of my head why it would give any FC to those at all.

yeah i flashed 7c, i wiped cache and dalvik same result, so i wiped from scratch reflashed rom and t-mo csc without even setting anything up and fc upon boot of the same -

I flashed rom and then CSC selector and everything went by fine but when i checked oem unlock it wasn't visible but i supposed it was turned on, so i rebooted to enable some xposed modules and got the "can only flash official binaries" and got into jail :c
Seeing the OEM unlock and checking if its active or not would be better to avoid problems IMO
Thanks

Hey :)
That's not garbled, it's encrypted and there we start getting problems of editing the csc files... As I stated in previous posts we need to find a way to properly decrypt the csc!
I did a look in the manual and it should be available on stock Note8 camera.
The photoseries does not work for me, when I press and hold the shutter button.
I can only repeat myself. The stock camera app IS fully stock and it doesn't feature the burst mode. However it has been brought back by modded camera via zeroprobe mod!
@Tkkg1994, you were right. It was probably corrupted file that created my issues.

Normally on the right side we already have the samsung stock network indicator that's why I'd like to keep the custom one left. Also double tap to statusbar is included, navbar not planned

Since the other rom (renovate) uses the s8 cscfeatures files it also won't have the oem unlock thing to prevent you from rebooting.

I'll try to summarize why it does end up on binary issue after a clean installation. This is important to understand!!

After a fresh installation, your device is like a brandnew device. OEM unlock will be turned off via the csc (depending on which one you are using) while booting your phone. That means after clean installing this device with any rom using full n8 csc files you need to wait 7 days for the OEM unlock to reappear. What does this mean for you?
Since you already installed a custom rom, your device is now of course being tripped (using a custom binary) and can't be rebooted until the switch appears. That will be the same thing on each new installation (clean install) of your device! Means a data wipe = again wait 7 days

    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:

    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!

    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:

    Final release of IronMan-Rom

    IronMan-Rom V2.0.0 Final:
    - Based on latest Oreo release (CRE5)
    - Includes May security patch
    - This rom is ONLY for the Note 8 and not for S7/S7e/S8/S8+ devices!
    - Updated all included bootloader and modems for F/FD/N models
    - Reworked the rom from scratch
    - Includes latest stock kernel and IronKernel
    - Updated GBWhatsApp and GBInstagram to most recent versions
    - Updated youtube vanced (to play youtube in background)
    - Updated SMusic app thanks to @thereassaad
    - Updated adaway and adblocker files
    - Updated magisk to V16.4
    - Updated xposed to 90.2 beta 3
    - Updated busybox to 1.28.4
    - Updated included twrp to my latest selfmade built
    - Updated webview so we don't have to use google chrome for it
    - Updated modded camera by zeroprobe to support oreo
    - Updated dual speaker mod to support oreo
    - Added a new custom ironman bootanimation thanks to Thibou (chose in aroma)
    - Added a new splash ironman image thanks to myellow and Karan_Tamboli (can also be chosen in aroma)
    - Updated the romcontrol with some new mods and some mods removed. It has now the exact same features as BatMan
    -> this means you can use the BatControl Pro app too!
    - Include csc features (applock, airmessage and many more), this rom ships with decrypted cscs!
    - Maybe something else, I have possibly already forgot it :D

    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:
