I tried to flash V5, followed steps, but I got "Symlink: some symlinks failed. Updater process ended with Error: 7". Anyone know how to fix this? Using twrp 3.0.2.0, on latest bootloader/modem for N910W8.

Edit: User error, I forgot I had mount partition readonly turn on.

I made a nandroid backup. Installed stock MM. Installed Titanium Backup and backed Ger VR Service, Gear VR Shell, Gear VR Setup Wizard, Gear VR System, Gear VR setup WizardStub.. Restored the Nandroid and restored those files to Project L. Let me see if can upload those files for you to restore with titanium. When restoring some of these system files Titanium hangs. After a forced reboot the restore is sucessfull and can continue restoring the others. Im gonna try to post the files here

Gear VR system files

Try these if works in Titanium Backup. Also I edit build.prop device to SM-G930T. Make sure you have com.facebook.system and Facebook App Manager and they are enabled.

910W8 Firmware

I tried to flash V5, followed steps, but I got "Symlink: some symlinks failed. Updater process ended with Error: 7". Anyone know how to fix this? Using twrp 3.0.2.0, on latest bootloader/modem for N910W8.

Edit: User error, I forgot I had mount partition readonly turn on.

Which firmware are you on? Would the ROM work on N910W8VLS1DPK1? Thanks.

testing now. weird thing is i actually got it to work a different way...similar to yours, however what i did was use a backup of setupwizard and launched it via the quickshortcutmaker app which prompted the download of all the files I needed. plugging in the gear vr was recognized and everything booted but I got a strange visual glitch where the left eye was all distorted covered in big black and white blocks intermittently. anyway...this was further than I had ever gotten on any note 7 rom.

will report back on if your method worked shortly...

Anyone know why I'm getting this black bar with "switch off" and "reset" buttons? I did not see this on Aurora 3.1?

2 questions/requests...please:

1) Can anyone provide details on how to install Magisk on here (is Magisk even compatible with this ROM)?

2) Can anyone provide details on how to install Xposed on here (is Xposed even compatible with this ROM)?

The distortion resolves after change build.prop device to SM-G930T and reboot

I got it to work! but the image was disorienting..like i was cross eyed in parts. but maybe because something had gone wrong in a non related mod, where the DPI was changed to 220. Had to flash the rom clean and do this over again. will share findings in a bit. Thanks for sharing! Definitely the furthest and most comprehensive light that's been shone on the subject.

ps. why are you setting the build.prop to SM-G930T, doesn't the S7 have a 5.1" screen? Wouldn't that distort the picture? Why can't we use the note 5 model number, since it also has a 5.7" screen?

Will report back...

same result after redoing it. the calibration is not right for me at the moment. still looks semi crossed eyed. what ppi are you running your rom at? the stock 560?

---------- Post added at 03:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:37 AM ----------

just confirmed that setting back to 560 ppi doesn't change how it looks in the gear vr. the spread or something must be off. I tried changing model to 920t, started getting glitches again. I'm gonna switch back to TWIZ'd for now...as it was working perfectly in that rom. Hope someone finds a universal solution for getting the gear VR to work on Note 7 Roms! Thanks again for sharing

@Lanc-City, just installed and loving the rom so far....quite the refresher for Note 4 !

Ofc this is a personal preference, is there a way to disable the initial swipe on lock screen before entering pin/pattern? And add weather/shealth to lock screen? Thank you.

After 1 day... Limited use with this rom here's what I wanted to contribute. I am in no way condemning this rom. I sincerely appreciate @Lanc-City for all his work. His roms have brought me back to enjoying my Note 4! Thank you sir.

AOD (always on display)
This seems to work, but when unlocking it reduces brightness and prevents brightness slider from working about 50% of the time. The only solution I've found is by waking phone with power button a couple of time (from screen off to on to off to on again or until the screen gets bright before actually swiping to unlock screen)
Turning off AOD, as before, resolves this issue.

This may or may not be related? I've had the volume go way way down on an unlock or two during my first day on project L v5. Barely hear-able. I think I had to restart to correct that? I cant remember. It may have just been a fluke? But I saw it mentioned before and it did happen to me twice today. (that's a bad bug, not being able to hear the phone ring)

S note was FC for some reason? I restored that from a Ti backup (same version) and it stopped. No clue what that was about.

Im seeing these black buttons on certain pull down notifications? No clue why? I'd like to get rid of them. I posted a picture on the previous page. I've seen it on ampere and do not disturb. To my knowledge I did not see them while running Aurora 3.1 (for 2 or 3 weeks?)

I'm currently running ramkernel v3 r2 for 910T and supersu 2.78 sr5. Battery life has been terrible today. Most from Android system (not screen as I expected) not sure if that's a kernel thing or what?

Xposed v87.1 unofficial for Samsung ART installed and running assistant enabler to get Google assistant and that's been fine.

Love the status bar mods (3minit) they are awesome. Love the lanc control with the info at the bottom of the pull down notifications...especially the "up time"

On the status bar... Differences in brightness for different icons? Clock and traffic are bright white... Tmobile signal, and notification icons (Gmail, SMS, WiFi, etc) those are all a noticeable darker "white" more grey in color. I think you can see that in the previous picture I posted on the previous page.

Rom itself feels a bit snappier to me. And I'm hoping I can solve my battery issues. I was easily getting a full day from Aurora 3.1 with ramkernel v2. I'm no pro so I'm not sure if I should switch back to ramkernel v2 or try and let this rom settle in first.

Anyway, sorry for the long post. I wanted to let @Lanc-City know what I experienced. Again, not complaining at all! I love your roms and appreciate your work. I look forward to your next releases.

Oh and sorry, I wanted to say sending SMS with default app worked for messages over 160 characters and group messaging seems to work properly too. 4 people in the group chat, when anyone replies we all get the message.

Sent a huge text, it sent and received on my son's iPhone.

Im new to the Gear VR I had this ROM and tried to make it work. I though that its the way it supposed to work but had some funny thing like cross-eye like you mention but I though thats the way it is. I tried the Note 5 model but didnt work and the S7 the image was better. Today I cant but Im gonna try TWIZ'd to see the difference but I like this rom. If you find some light on this please share it.
