sm-g955f. Trying to install the rom but I get constant bootloops or it just says my phone name and won't boot into the system. I didn't do dirty wipe so yeah. I don't know. Any suggestions on what to do?
Try to download the rom again, may have corrupted the file. It has happened on some occasion that because of this we have headaches.

This is for eberyone who is having trouble with this rom

Q: "My installation gets stuck/device bootloops"
A: "Checksum the zip and make sure to use fast SD-Cards like UHS-I and flash Magisk Cannary"

Q: "My device lags/freezes what can i do"
A: "Apply Low memory kill patch and just reboot your phone every 3-4 days and it should be running just fine"

Q: "Can I use banking apps?"
A: "Depends on app you might need hide magisk manager"

Q: "Some system sounds are missing/not playing what can I do ?"
A: "Dirty flash the rom with note 9 sound bank"

Q: "Samsung apps randomy stop working"
A: "Delete cache and data (from settings app for specific app) and try it if that doesn't work dirty reflash your rom"

Q: "Offline USB charging is broken how can i fix it?"

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;

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

For those, who were constantly asking for the update or bug fixes.. come on now!! Its been almost 7months since the first release of this rom and there is not a single response of the dev in this thread so far. Do the math.. Surely the dev has other important things to do rather than fixing this rom & publishing the version 2.

Forget about the update, look for temporary fixes that other users recommended here, be happy with what you have with this amazing but practically dead rom and leave the developer alone for releasing V2!

Hi all,

I don't know if it has already been said but I solved the lag issue by setting "low memory killer" section of hKtweaks app to 'very light'.
This problem was due to an agressive RAM management, when the kernel closes many services at the same time.

EDIT (20/07/2021) : I'm using these Settings on LMK values right now.

I suggest you to change the 2 last values :

After testing, it seems I have less lags than using default "Very Light" settings.

Any other feedback is welcomed :)

In short, tragically project for oblivion. It might be a good idea to give up the code so that another developer can continue to "mention the original developers" and not leave a bunch of people who can't buy another phone in the lurch.

I have no idea what is going on, and you cant ask in the telegram group, I thought one of the devs mentioned June 15 and then pushed it back to July 15, but that has come and gone without a word. No mumblings, before June 15 one of the devs mentioned the best version of twrp to be on which seemed to hint at something, but nothing since then. I know they do it for free in their spare time, but a little transparency would be nice. And I agree, let others work on this if you they dont want to or dont have the time, but the dev doesnt seem like the kind of person that would be okay with others working on it even if he gets mentioned

Anyone have any experience with "Vova rom"?? Its a ported Android Q rom with one UI 2.5, based on Hades Kernel. I tried it for 2days, but since S8 is my only phone, i couldn't continue the trial.

The most exciting thing of vova rom is in addition of having oneUI 2.5 + android q + May 2021 update, this rom DO NOT HAVE THE LAG like hadesrom q 1.0. I wish someone can try vova rom for a bit longer time and gave us feedback?

Would love to shift to vova rom anytime over this dead and update less hades q rom.

You guys think (hope) we get a Xmas present this year?
That's not going to happen, project totally neglected both information and support from the developers.
( personal opinion, no answers, nothing at all, just a constant attempt to bring down instagram group on which depends what you ask they will threaten you with ban.)...

We have to accept it. There is no V2, if it was ever a thought, it disappeared when changed to S9.

    Just as an example, a folder containing 700mb of files generates >500GB of traffic in 15 days, but when you look closer more than 50% of the traffic goes to curls of pages i don't have aka wp-login, woocommerce login, sql backups and so on, with mostly russian ip's and more than 1k hits / ip / day.
    Just my few cents left after paying for hosting (/s).

    @corsicanu
    I'm unable to download good lock apps from your goodlock. They are all coming up 404 so wondering if this is a temporary thing or are you not doing it anymore? Curious...
    At this moment i have some problems with the hosting service, old one took my things down because of insane traffic generated which actually turned out to be ddos.
    I hope i can bring it back asap on a new hosting but as i said earlier it might not last if same thing happens.
    To be honest i thought of killing it at some point because it costs me more than it generates, i won't hide that this is still on the table, but for now i will try to get it back and figure out something in the next weeks.

    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.
    2
    Conclusion? Is it successful?
    Just try waiting for again because waiting for anything is happy !
    Today is fifth day of testing battery life. I'm very busy doing a lot of things but I try geting one picture !

    2
    Ok. I can't wait for your settings.
    Just try waiting for again because waiting for anything is happy !

    A: Reboot once and see if it appears again. If yes reboot again.
