pleeeeeeeeeeease how i can fix this problem????
Same issue
I was having trouble installing bixby voice, on a certain s8 port rom ...

But I installed in Version Sac23 and it worked normally.

So I did the following with the rom another i wanted.
1 - Go in TWRP and Wipe, format data, and reboot in recovery, wipe all again.
2 - Install you rom s8 port
3 - Install CSC 1.2.1 S8-S7 (In setup i choose EUROPE after ZTO, its my country)
4 - Installed Tgp (I think are better kernel for s8 port roms)
5 - Instal via Odin (Download mode) this 2 files in Topic (Becareful with Model if are G935f/g930).
6 - After that, boot in system, maybe delay a 5-10 minutos to boot up.
7 - Go to Bixby sliding to right in home screen and waiting for update
8 - Download and Copy the FIX BIXBY Fullscreen in this topic to your phone, and install with TWRP.
9 - Install ButtonMapper in playstore, and chose "Volume Down" or "Up", and select to Holding, open "Assistant Voice", after that, holding the button and choose Bixby.
10 - Enjoy with Bixby, in moment not working wake up bixby saying "Hi Bixby", but with holding button works normally.


If not work, maybe the CSC you choosing not support Bixby Voice.

To everyone; download a build.prop editor nd change model number from SM-G33XX to SM-G95XX then reboot the phone too recovery and wipe cache and dalvik.
When you reboot the bixby wll warn about updates; do all updates.
And the bixby will work fully functional.

I saw that you have Ambasadii Rom.
You can try this
Install Build prop editor apk from Google Play and change the model name from g955f or G935F to g955u. Restart and open Bixby voice.
This method works in Sac23 port Rom and Batman port rom. If it is not working, change the Rom with Batman or Sac23

And for the moment or forever u will not have it. It's a problem of microphone. It's different from s8 and s8+. So u can open only with the assigned button and then speak, but not wake up by voice

I found kind of strange workaround to use voice activation.

If I open Deezer play a song for 1-2sec and go back to the homescreen (leave deezer open in background) Voice activation works even if the screen is off.
Strange thing is that deezer has to be open, as soon as i close it, it doesn't work anymore.

Can someone reproduce this? Maybe it helps to fix the voice activation...

    Hi everyone, just wanted to post this because I know most of the people who are using S8 ported custom roms on their S7/S7 Edge will get the problem in using Bixby voice after global release as it shows update system to use Bixby voice and there shows no update.

    I have found the fix and successfully worked Bixby voice on my phone.

    BIXBY FULLSCREEN FIX :
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7...y-voice-fullscreen-fix-flashable-zip-t3664324

    So what you guys need to do is :

    1. Download Bootloader and modem from the DOWNLOAD SECTION IN THIS THREAD uploaded by tkkg1994. YOU MIGHT NEED TO LOGIN TO SEE THE DOWNLOADS SECTION AS MENTIONED BY SEVERAL USERS.

    2. Download Odin Latest version from here :

    https://odindownload.com/download/#.WaPCfyig_IU

    3. Make sure you have installed odin drivers for samsung so that it can detect your S7 edge.

    4. Open odin as administrator and attach the bootloader and modem file to BL and CP.

    5. Boot the phone to download mode by volume down + power button.

    6. Flash! It will take several minutes to boot up if you have done it correctly.

    7. Open Bixby voice and it will show to update. This update is not the system update. It will be some bixby apps update so Click update and then it will download some apks update automatically and then it will work normally.

    ENJOY!
    Give it a thumbs up to support me.

    Hello dear @noppy22

    Could you please move this topic into the right place maybe into this forum (apps, themes, mods) or whatever looks the best for you. Also this thread here and the bixby full screen thread can easily be integrated into one. I suggest the OP/moderator to close one and combine it. :good:

    Thank you very much for your assistant as always, have a nice day! :fingers-crossed:

    Yes. I can confirmed this working from my side too. As long as Deezer running at the background/minimize after play any song for 1sec. You can "Hi Bixby" anywhere even the screen off.

    Edit: using Spotify too working. Same method like Deezer.

    Ironic how S8/N8 users are banging their heads on how to remap the bixby button and disable it all together, while S7/S7e users are banging their heads on how to simulate a bixby button to get bixby working!
