Help... after using V2 for almost a week and after I even replaced my battery, this custom rom still fcking eats a ton of battery especially noticeable when I play games on a "very low" [yes it is freaking low] brightness setting while playing ML AND even when I let the phone off (sleep), I still see a huge 10% reduction when I wake up early in the morning so I can't help it but think that custom rom (especially the custom kernel) have a very huge role in this battery draining issue! BTW, I use S8 exynos phone and it has a 3000mah battery that could last up to 10h but not on this custom rom. tf dev pls fix it!

Hey mate. Have you checked for any apps in particular that may be draining your battery ?

Wakelock blocking apps can be very useful for this issue..

What are your battery statistics like ?

Nope it is definitely the kernel causing such drain because when I return back to stock rom with a different custom kernel (A2N), I noticed that I have much longer battery life and MUCH LONGER GAME TIME (almost 5 hours! Mind you) so yeah it is the kernel's at fault!

Android q+oneui 2.5(this rom) is different than p+oneui 1.0(stock),a newer version of android and oneui may cause more power usage.If you need the best battery life,just flash aosp-like roms(ex.lineage os)

REQ/INQ:
Hello @corsicanu Firstly, thanks for the great work. I'm using the rom for about two weeks and it's quite good by the way.

Will there be some future upgrades/patches to include some missing features into the rom like App Lock etc. ?

Hello users,

The one's who were not able to find App Lock; go to Smart Manager app - scroll down - you will get the App Lock

I did a clean install of the rom with no debloat. However, neither the Smart Manager is found on the device nor the AppLock, and also not in the Advanced Features section. I have just downloaded the Smart Manager apk but it could not be installed.

So, it'd be so nice if there is a solution for getting/using the App Lock? Or, if it's my mistake, I'd be happy to see the step that I didn't take right.

Thanks!..

Let me recollect, in aroma installer there is an option to select either from 2 smart manager. If you are not able to find the app lock in the chosen smart manager, try reinstalling the rom with other smart manager, the one you did not chose before

This makes sense.
Thank you!

Does anyone have wifi problem when tws earbuds are on at the same time?
The reason that this can become problematic is that Bluetooth and WiFi devices tend to operate within an almost identical frequency range, which is around 2.4 Gigahertz. You can find several methods to fix this on the google

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?

    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;

    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.
