Great to hear
Enjoy ROM dear

you are hands down the best dev in note 8 community. everywhere I search in YouTube for a rom review on note 8 its your rom ( strong non English speaking fan base is there for you btw).
I have to tell you. no one buys note 8 for the real estate its for the spen and you did an awsm job by making it work in all your roms, thank you for that again.
I will be testing out all your roms from now on, till Samsung drops the amd backed galaxy( which will me my next phn for sure) or my N8 gets totaled.
You rock.

edit: I dont know if you have time or interested in porting the light version of s20ulra rom for n8, if you are I have a humble req, is it possible to release a non rooted version of the rom along side the rooted version.
Also any idea which version of gcam works best on this rom?

Hi developer when is new update/release coming up? I can't wait for it. Pls do include dynamic lockscreen. And 1440p screen resolution is not really 1440p, fix the resolution. Thanks in advance

Just wanted to share my experience with this ROM. I installed it without any add-ons. I also don't need root, so the install was pretty clean.
At first I paired with the Phantom kernel from this thread and it wasn't great, but then I upgraded to the newest Phantom kernel and it works like a charm, really.
No issues, everything works, performance is great. I even feel like the camera works a bit better (placebo effect maybe?).
That's rather unusual for a custom work, but it's real. Thanks a lot!

Hi dev, thanks for the room, I have installed this room few times, because the add-ons failed, so i installed only the room and is working really good, the root and magisk is okay, i only like the dark mode UI on phones and this one is almost perfect, thou after i restored my data backup, i launched the Samsung store and i got on screen one error code that telling me the Samsung store is not supported in my region, and then i wipe cache and data from "CSC" but it didn't help, instead at reboot is taking long time to connect to sim network provider.
Now i ask dev or anyone with knowledge about the Samsung store issue, what to do to fix it, in other rooms did work well.
There is screenshot from theme store from Samsung.

At first your Roms are the best for Samsung!! Every Times the best choice.
It is planed to make a Update? The new Rom here is for me not usable why i have the November Security Update installed and with that a higher Bootloader. So i do not can use the Phone. I do not get Sim Working. Set I bootloader and Radio Update in The rom it is no starting and depends in bootloop. The old cheat to install the rom and after that restore the new Boot with TWRP also not working anymore and ends in bootloop.

Thanks Men for your work!!

But I have several questions for you, which are:

1- Should I install both (Rom and Kernel) to have them both on my device, or only installing Rom will be enough for that?

2- Do I have to install the Add-Ons to my rom or it is preferable?

3- What's the difference between Stock Kernel and TGP Kernel?
