Used V1 of this ROM on my Note 8 N950N since about February. Have used V2 for 5 days or so now. Installed in TWRP without wiping any memory or files. No settings or data were lost after install. V2 ROM runs phone cooler and has about 10-20% better battery life. No Root by default but can root by renaming Magisk.apk to Magisk.zip and then install through TWRP. Rooted V1 but have not rooted V2. Banking apps and Gpay with NFC work perfect. SafetyNet in Magisk passes. No changes needed or made. Camera for me is same as V1 which was much better than original firmware. (Improved Low light) 2x Zoom is working for me. Basically, everything working properly as it should. Great work and much thanks. Highly recommend this ROM!

Yes. a rooted with Magisk, changing from .apk to .zip and intalling througth TWRP.

To pass SafatyNet and be able to use bank apps:

Here are the steps –

  1. First, go to the Google Play Store & download “Termux” which is an Android terminal emulator and Linux environment app.
  2. Next, open Magisk Manager & from the left side menu, select the “Downloads” option.
  3. There, you need to Install two Magisk Modules – Busybox for Android NDK & MagiskHide Props Config
  4. You can either Install one Module & then reboot and then Install the other, or Install One, go back, install the second, and then reboot. Both will work.
  5. Once the phone reboots, now we need to do one final thing which is the most important step. Before moving to the next step, just check if both the modules are shown as installed or not in Magisk Manager.
  6. Open the Termux app & then type “su” and press Enter. This will grant Superuser Rights to the app.
  7. Next, type “props” & press Enter. You will see a lot of options & numbers in front of them to choose from.
  8. You need to choose the option that says “Edit Device Fingerprint”. It should be the Number “1” but just double check it on your device.
  9. Enter that Number & press Enter.
  10. Again, you’ll see some options & from there, choose the one that says “Pick a certified fingerprint”. This time, instead of numbers, you will see letters in front of each option like “f”, “v”, “s”, “b” etc. Enter the letter in front of the option (Pick a Certified Fingerprint) & press Enter.
  11. Now, you’ll see a long list of various Smartphone companies so from here, you need to choose your phone’s company. For Example, if your phone is the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, choose “Asus”. Here also, you need to type the number in front of the company name & then press Enter. [Samsung -> 26]
  12. Now, it’ll show you various devices from that company. If your device is there in the list, you’re good to go. Otherwise, you’re not lucky so you will have to wait for some other method.
  13. Select the number in front of your Phone’s name & then press Enter. [Galaxy Note 8 -> 39]
  14. Finally, it will ask if you want to continue. If you have followed everything above & selected the right options, write “y” & press Enter.
  15. Finally, press “y” to reboot your device & press Enter. Now, your phone will reboot.
Don't forget to use MagiskHide for the bank app and Google Play Services and hide Magisk app througth the settings
Do I need to flash magisk first even thoug it failed on passing the safety net?I currently uninstalled the whole magisk.

I did a complete wipe from my old rom (V1) and did a fresh instalation of this version (V2). I flashed Magisk at the same time, before I reboot to system. I think it's not necessary, but worked for me. Maybe just uninstalling Magisk completely and install it again through the TWRP and after do that steps to pass the SafetyNet is enough. I used Magisk Latest Version 23.0 from the official site

Hi @ananjaser1211 and @corsicanu,

I've dirty flash v2 and got bixby routines stop working all the time. Do you have any solution for this?

Thanks in advance.
Routines crashes when setting a routine for brightness, i will be downgrading to routines v2 (the one designed for android Q) in the V2.1 release, as the current routines we use is aimed for oneui R and has issues

how to root this rom, download Magisk root from Official Website
1 - change file Magisk.apk to Magisk.zip
2 - go to recovery mode twrp and flash this.. done!

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.

Hey guys. So I flashed v2. Is great. Some good changes like my brightness issue outdoor got fixed and my screen lock activation with home tapping also works. Iris scanner is working too.

But I've noticed a strange behaviour from my twitter. Every time I open it, then put the phone down, lock screen etc. after a few mins reopening twitter takes me to login screen. And then I can't seem to login. It keeps looping back to login screen as soon as I enter the password and hit enter. The only fix is a reboot. What gives? Any ideas?

Thank you devs for keeping this great device alive.

Hi, if you are rooted just add to root/system/build.prop line at the end "audio.safemedia.bypass=true". It worked for me. Good luck.

    I'm considering flashing this ROM, it's looking really promising.

    Please can anyone confirm the following:
    • Does wifi-calling work?
    • Does call recording capture your voice and caller's voice clearly?
    • Do stock S-Pen features work?
    • Do your banking/financial apps work fine with/without root?
    • Is wifi-hotspot stable?
    Any other quirks?
    VoWIFI is working
    Call recording will work
    S pen works and its features
    I have gpay with root and its working fine
    Wifi and Hotspot is stable

    Guys, I installed Hades rom 15 days ago or so but I can't remember which version I installed, can't remember if I followed instructions from page 1 or from page 20 in this thread or some other thread... Can someone please help me find out which version I have installed on my Note8?
    P.s Rom is working like a charm! I'm beyond happy! Thanks!

    Does it depend on CSC version? Coz it does not work on my phone because the screen/menu is missing here.

    Meanwhile I solved the issue between my last post and your answer, anyway, by installing "S Secure" app.

    I don't know why you and lot others have yet I don't. In the first place I selected a CSC and second time selected another CSC but the other installation steps were selected as usual.

    Anyway, the problem is gone and there is happiness here.

    Besides, @Star-7 and @Sunee1 thanks for your kind replies. Those have been greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    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;

    Installation steps
    If you are installing on S8/S8+ or any of Korean variants - SELECT LESS BLOATWARE OR THE PHONE WILL NOT BOOT
    • Make sure you have latest official TWRP installed (download latest official for Note8 or S8/S8+)
    • 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
      - coming from hadesRom Q v1.0, no wipe is needed
      - coming from any other setup than hadesRom, full wipe is mandatory - Dalvik Cache, Cache, Data (or select wipe in Aroma options)
    • 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 of v2.0:
    • Common - Some camera modes (live focus, super slow motion)
    • Common - Permissive kernel (needed to for hw mismatch)
    • Common - Encryption (internal/external storage encryption is broken)
    • Common - Flashlight intensity (due to fixing iris)
      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.

    So basically the time has come, the big upgrade is here, i proudly present you hadesRom Q v2, a full fledged port of Note9 to Note8, S8 and ofcourse, S8+.

    This upgrade took us more than we expected, but in the end it's by far better than v1 with a ton of impossible fixes and exotic features enabled, such as iris.

    Before i start pasting the changelog of what last 10 months looked like, i would like to praise my personal OneUI God - Ananjaser1211 - who's responsable for a major part of bugfixing, show him some love on his paypal at http://paypal.me/ananjaser1211.

    If you appreciate what we do, consider supporting us with feedback, donations (Either to myself (http://paypal.me/corsicanu) or Anan) and enjoy the rom.

    Last but not least, i would still like to mention that we will not tolerate any kind of kang, either it's aroma, fixes, kernel or others parts of our work, and as i said few weeks ago - any other Android 10 rom will be suspected for kang and deeply investigated for reporting evidences.
