Great ROM! However, I haven't been able to get Viper4Android to work on my Note 8 :(. I like the older version better than the newer one. The old material version works fine, but it seems like it can't access my storage and can't make any profiles. The newer one can make profiles, but the audio side of things just won't work. Could anybody help me out? This app is very important to me and I have become dependant of it lol
Working fine for me also in legacy mode.

Took the plunge and installed the Rom today. Quite liking it very much! Just there is no root? What have I done wrong? I installed the Magisk app as per instructions and there is an option to install Magisk, just in order to do so, I have to patch a file? What file? I looked at the instruction on the Magisk page and there is quite a bit there which also requires me to wipe my phone again? Any help would be appreciated. I must have not done something....

n9500 is still on pie, there are a lot of users for this device in the middle east and Turkey

I'm running this custom rom for almost one year, and it'd be great if I got the Q port !

    hi, when we see a update for this amazing rom? new security patch?

    Yes, I am eagerly waiting also, hope soon.

    Plssss Release v2

    We are waiting for a new update, will it come soon?

    Greetings to all. Just a little point of order if I may. While I know about wanting to get updates to the latest rom a particular Dev has to offer, there is, shall we say, an
    "Unwritten XDA Rule #17" as I like to call it:

    "Thou shalt not ask for ETA's either directly or indirectly"

    While I know it's hard at times to be patient, I would ask that very thing from each of you out of respect to the developer. More than one Dev has abandoned XDA for this very sort of behavior, which in turn does none of us, or the XDA community, any good at all. So please, no more ETA requests please and thank you, or, you just may find your posts magically disappearing. :cool:

    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    Some personal thoughts:

    You are not allowed to use this base, aroma, or any parts of it for your own "ROM". if you want to make a Q port, "DIY"
    Any sort of kang will be reported without hesitation..

    This project is here only because of heavy collaboration of my brother @ananjaser1211 who spent very much of his precious time on bringing this port into a decent state, so make sure to send him some love via paypal.

    If you like my work and want to support the development, you can always send me a treat via paypal or press 'Like' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;

    You should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation - for extra questions read FAQ post below;

    • Make sure your phone is charged to at least 70%.
    • Download the ROM, and transfer to your phone / external SD card
    • Make sure OEM Unlock is ON in developer settings
    • Boot the phone into TWRP
    • Do a FULL wipe: Dalvik Cache, Cache, Data, System
      Warning: Dirty flash is not recommended, even if coming from previous version of hadesRom, due to base firmware and android version being different some testers faced issues, do it under your own risk and avoid reporting issues if you dirty flashed!
    • Flash ROM and boot (first boot can take up to 15-20 min)
    • uncheck diagnostic data in setting wizard

    How about bugs and/or issues and/or requests?
    • First read existing issues and the F.A.Q below to ensure its not a duplicate
    • Properly report issues by submitting an issue on GitHub
    • provide as much info as possible so the issue is not ignored / closed

    Bugs at release:
    • Common - Iris
    • Common - Some camera modes
    • Common - HRM sensor as selfie button
    • Note 8 - flashlight intensity
      Due to the nature of this rom being a port from a different soc and these bugs being 95% hardware related, the above features have been disabled/hidden with a very small chance of succeeding in fixing them.

    Q: Phone is showing YYY model but my phone is ZZZ model, is that normal?
    A: Yes, that is very normal and very intented. Do not change it or you will break features.

    Q: Why OEM toggle is missing in this rom?
    A: I disabled it to be sure nobody gets locked by mistake.

    Q: Magisk app not showing, what to do?
    A: Download latest Magisk Manager from here and install as normal app.

    Q: My phone shows locked because "Payment services was uninstalled without authorization", how to get rid of it?
    A: Unfortunately you need to reflash rom, no wipe needed. Also don't try to debloat the rom again or you will have same issue.

    Q: Installation failed, what to do now?
    A: First of all make sure you have the pointed twrp. If the problem persists try to redownload the zip and/or reflash with selecting less things in Aroma installer. If you still have the problem, probably your device is not supported.

    Q: How to report bugs?
    A: If you want to report a bug make sure you include:
    -device variant / modem version / bootloader version / region
    -detailed info about the encountered issue
    -steps to reproduce the bug

    Q: How to take logs?
    A: Download Logcat Extreme and take a look at this.

    Q: TWRP can't mount data partition, what to do?
    A: Make sure you formatted data partition if your previous rom was stock.

    Q: Phone is not booting even after 20 minutes?
    A: Try to reboot. If still not booting try to redownload the zip and/or reflash with selecting less things in Aroma installer and/or make sure you use the pointed TWRP and/or make sure you formatted data partition if your previous rom was stock.

    Q: How to format data partition?

    Q: Phone is asking to reboot because sim changed, what should i do?
    A: Reboot once and see if it appears again. If yes reboot again.

    Q: Phone asks to wipe data because operator changed, should i wipe?
    A: Try to cancel and just reboot. If you can't do that or the popup still appear, reflash the rom and wipe in Aroma installer.
    We hope you all enjoy this release, it has been a ton of work to get it where its at, and we hope in the future it will be even better. make sure to leave your feedback and report any feature request or bugs in the linked github issues page so we can track them.
