Note 8 port for S7/S7E/NFE (F) Variant
By MKUltraBlack

V1.0
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=8889791610682879859

Needs fixed: Iris
????? Maybe more

Working: Secure folder
Applock
USSD codes
Infinity wallpapers
Edge lighting fixed for NFE screen
Game tools working
Air commands
Long press restart to boot to recovery
Bixby (should be)

This is my first blind port, I only own S7 Edge so I might need some logs from users to fix problems. I found 1 guy to help test so it does boot and work etc

The kernel is just stock NFE kernel with dmverity etc removed

It is just 1 rom zip that flashes, no aroma, and selects the correct files to add for NFE

I will update this thread with more details maybe pics if some people can send them to me as I obviously can't get screenshots from NFE as I don't have 1.

Please feel free to leave any problems you find, not a list of what mods you want added though. There are a lot of threads on xda to add volume mods, etc.

Remember this is only V1.0, I will try fix anything that doesn't work in later versions

******************
How to install
custom rom
******************
You will need:
*PC with Odin 3.13.1 or above
(https://samsungodin.com)
*TWRP .tar image for your model
Flat: https://eu.dl.twrp.me/herolte/
Edge: https://eu.dl.twrp.me/hero2lte/
*Rom
(Stored on external memory/sdcard)
*Unlocked OEM

To unlock OEM

********************************************
Go to settings, phone information, and tap build number until it says developer options unlocked, press back twice and go into developer options turn on OEM unlock
********************************************

1. Put your phone into download mode by turning your phone off, now press volume down, power and home key at the same time until the screen turns green, then release the buttons.

2. Open Odin on your PC and plug the USB cable into your phone and press volume up.
You will see it is connected to Odin, (there will be a blue rectangle saying com(number)

3. Select the AP section and load your TWRP .tar image in there.

4. Get ready to press volume up, home and power button at same time on your phone now press start on Odin, it will only take a few seconds, as soon as the box goes green and says pass, press the volume up, home and power button combo until TWRP splash screen shows up on your phone screen. Now release button combo and unplug USB cable from your phone.

5. In twrp press wipe, then format. A keyboard will appear, type yes and press enter. Now press back to go to TWRP main screen and press reboot and select reboot to recovery. It will now reboot back into TWRP.

6. Press wipe again, then format, type yes, press enter. (Do this 3 times)
Press back to go to TWRP main screen and press wipe, select advanced wipe, check all boxes apart from OTG and SDCARD and swipe. (Do this 3 times)
Press back to go to TWRP main screen and press wipe then swipe to factory reset. (Do this 3 times)

********************************************
Your phone is now completely clear with no operating system and ready to flash a custom rom. When you downloaded your rom, you stored it on your sd card or external storage, you need to do this as when you do all the wipes it wipes your internal storage but not your sd card, that's why it says in advanced wipe don't check the sd card or OTG boxes.
********************************************

7. Press back until you go to main screen in TWRP and select install, select storage, external (sd card) and select the rom zip. Now just swipe to flash.

Normally it will go into aroma which contains check boxes of extra items to add into the rom, this rom however is a straight flash, it will automatically detect your phone model and select the correct kernel and battery capacity. It will say Installation finished when done. Now go back to main twrp screen and select reboot and press system. The phone will reboot, leave it 10-15mins to allow it to load the rom, be patient. Then you will be at the set up page just like starting a new phone. Set up from there and enjoy the rom.

There is a thread for secure folder mod on xda:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-8/development/secure-folder-patch-custom-rom-t3949878

This thread is for my rom, not general help.

If you need help porting a custom rom to another model first make sure you have the original devs permission, then ask that dev what they have done to modify their files

    @MKUltraBlack
    Hi OP, thanks for your hard work. Keep it up.
    Everything is ok and smoothly, excepted iris scaner
    Memo screen of, Air command, SS notes, Dual App, Secure Folder work well
    No issue so far.

    Can you do the same for android 10?

    Thank you, iris scanner is needing fixed if you wish to use android 10 I suggest using Anan's android 10 rom for s7/S7E/NFE which can be found here

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7-edge/development/rom-floydq-v1-0-t4085667/amp/

    It is a lot of hard work to port android 10 and @ananjaser1211 put a lot into this project, I have only managed to port Pie to S7/S7E/NFE thanks to @Kill-Switch who gave me the method with some help from @ananjaser1211
    and @corsicanu
    I will not be able to port android 10 in the near future unfortunately
