It's best that he takes all the time it takes to remove all the bugs and possibly add some missing features.

I don't disagree, but I honesty cant tell if he's pushing it back because he wants to fix more bugs, hasnt had time to finalize it or because people are asking for ETAs (which I agree is rude, but the telegram group is kind of a mess to begin with)

So is pie better than this rom in your opinion? Cause i'm not sure if i want to go back.

Those lags were killing the whole experience, so I went back and no regrets since. Hades 12 is perfect as a daily driver.

For swipe controls, I use "Navigation Gestures (Paid version)" which provides better gestures than the Android 10 native ones anyway.

"Button Mapper" works like a charm, remapping the Bixbi button no problem.

Battery life is great, neither better nor worse than Hades 13.

The ONLY downside is old security updates. So, there's that.

What about the sound? Are you using the dual speaker mod?

I used this rom for over a year in the past and never had a sound problem. Then I switched to Hades 13 and went back to Hades 12 with a fresh install. I must have done something wrong during installation, so the sound is a bit low. It'll do until Hades 13 fixes all of its problems (if ever). Besides, using headphones eliminates the problem.

They don't update Hades 12 anymore, maybe horizon is a better option. I never used Horizon.

I just checked some threads about dual speaker mods, it comes down to modifying two files (mixer_gains.xml and mixer_paths.xml), which are both modified on my phone. So I have the dual sound mod active.

I will have to install another rom and compare speaker volume during calls to be sure.

Btw, sound is great when listening to music. It's just during calls I barely hear the other side.

Alright then, I will most likely downgrade to pie soon again. Thanks for the help.

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.

xpROhLq.png

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;

  • Boot the phone into TWRP
  • Do a FULL wipe: Dalvik Cache, Cache, Data, System

    The big problem is that having a "utility car we want to have the benefits of a sports car ..." the hardware of our phone, even if we want to, the developers have their hands tied in this regard because they are not magicians.

    The device crossover is impressive, our processor to be able to sustain the crossover and provide performance / stability for sure is going to get a little hot ... "whenever we install a rom, the kernel takes 3 or 4 days to settle properly" then we can play a bit with governor settings either default or manual to get that performance / battery life.
    Is this rom recommended? Undoubtedly.
    Can it have a fault? it can but it is insignificant.
    We cannot forget that the limitation is given to us by our phone model, ram, processor, etc ... This project is undoubtedly the most powerful option for other devices adapted to S8.

    Just tried out and found out something wrong with charging with this V2 new release. So my cable has a watt indicator display and it would always around 7-12 Watt on fast charging. But i don't know sometimes after a while or when the phone went hot, the indicator dropped and went to 1 Watt but it said fast charging still on notification but the batteries not increasing afterall however it went down like it wasn't on fast charging, and if i unplugged it and plugged it in again, the indicator still showed 1 Watt, but it'll be fine again if i reboot my phone and not using my phone while i'm charging it. my charger works fine with the other S8 that's on stock rom still. Is it just me or anybody else has the same issue as me? Anyways this rom run very smooth and amazing afterall. heads down, amazing work!

    It has something to do with thermal management. When phone reaches 70 to 75°C charging current is dropped to further reduce heat. I experienced this as well. Maybe it's a bug in thermal sensor or thermal management.

    Thanks but not the same smart manager ,maybe yours is the chinese one? Perhaps I've forgot to select the option in aroma..
    I just activated app lock by putting this in cscfeature.xml of my current active CSC
