few updates.

There are few notes for S8/S8+ users, previous you were able to change the flash light intensity, and use flashlight from the lockscreen shortcut, these has been bricked by the V2 update as the fix for them conflicted with iris scanner.

in hindsight i should have disabled the method that broke it all together to retain some functionality but it slipped my mind. so will see how this can be handled.

For Note 8 users, i am not sure how this happened yet, but the telephoto camera stopped working after the release, i cant trace back what broke it yet. so for now the zoom camera is useless. ive opened an issue on github.

one last thing, a common bug across all phones is the selfie/back camera white box is flickering again, not sure yet why it is working fine here and broken for pretty much everyone, so again, will see how this could be handeled.

meanwhile please report any new issues you face on github so i can see it.

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.
My best congratulations, the system works very very fluid. I find very significant changes in this update, I am like with new shoes. It is fantastic to be able to update the system without losing anything, an impeccable job so far I did not find anything wrong. Once again Congratulations to the Team, a big hug to everyone.

For those who have installed v2, can u confirm fix about the camera lag issues in social media apps like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook etc.
Secondly about the smart view lag when casting screen?
I'm asking because I'm in stock rom so jumping from one rom to another isn't easy as it wipes all the data etc.

The delay is almost negligible, it does not reach the second. You can make a copy of the current one with twrp and if the result does not convince you to return (everything will be as you left it), but this is the dark reverse ... the one that enters does not return !!!

    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.

    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.
