Upgraded a Samsung S8 with this great rom, for which many thanks. I had hoped that moving to Android 10 would enable me to access what is known as Audio Streaming for Hearing Aid (ASHA) which is the protocol now across the hearing aids industry for communication with mobile phones. Some of the options do work but I am getting some errors in usage. Has anyone out there any experience of ASHA on an S8 that has had this rom installed?

Hi everyone really interested in trying out this ROM. Sorry if this question has been answered somewhere but will this support the Global FD (Dual sim) version?

Hi. Yeah surely working, liking the ROM so far. Will test it out, love the fact that theres no bloat apps. Just the ones I want.

Quick question, have you used this ROM? Did you have any issues with Good Lock? It seems to continuously crash anytime I try to do anything with it.
I had the SM-G955FD variant and I have been using it for more than a year !

There was a Lock Star module issue on v2, but it has been fixed on v3.

Good Lock is supposed to work anyway except for some countries.
In that case, change your CSC or use a patched version of Good Lock (both are provided in AROMA Install).

Good luck, tell me if it works.

Nah it did not help, maybe I'm doing something wrong will look into it further later. But I did come across two more ROMs that caught my eye. Project Sakura & Alexis ROM, both seem pretty nice! Have you had any experience in using any of the two?

I'd probably lean more towards hades/Alexis since they are ports of Samsungs ROMS and have stock camera. Not sure what I would do without it, Lineage is probably much better but it does not seem to have the camera.

Alexis is the most stable on One UI ROMS, Hades has minor issues on memory management.

Project Sakura is still on Android 11.
If you want AOSP, flash Pixel Experience, the best for Android stock in my opinion.

I believe Lineage OS has a camera app. Install one if not after all...

Oh the android version doesn't really bother me. Just looking for a decent smooth ROM. Heard that Sakura is pretty in that department.

By what you said, Alexis sounds like a good try! Would you suggest giving it a go?

For stability yes, for features no since it's Android 9 One UI 1.0
On Android 10 and higher, you have navigation gestures and so on...

It depends what you prioritise according to your needs.

My needs are not that precise to be honest, just the usual like everyone else. Smooth, Good Battery Life, Good Camera, no heat ups.

I've been using hades Q V3 for 5 days now and while the ROM itself is amazing with smooth interface, I'm really not liking the fact that my phone has been heating up considerably more than the stock ROM & battery life has decreased a LOT! May be I did something wrong I'm not sure exactly. Or is there some kernel i can flash along with this ROM for better usage?

This is one of the downsides of that ROM.
I partially solved freezes issue (don't know if you have it too...) by increasing SWAP memory from 2 GB to 4GB.

For battery life, I suggest you to change your governor settings with HKTweak app with the ones from stock.
Some parameters are missing wich cause high clock speed for minor tasks.

Ah, I see. That's unfortunate.

Guess I'll probably look for some other ROM, maybe Lineage I guess? Or probably would just go back to stock just root it and remove the bloat apps myself.

If you want Pie, I would flash a custom ROM because they're already debloated with cool mods like Dual Speaker, Dual Apps etc...which stock ROM doesn't have.
That's up to you after all.

If you want to test other ROMs, you may backup the current one (Boot-System-Data) from a custom recovery to easily restore in case you changed your mind.

Sure, but dual speakers etc arent exactly what I'm after. Stock ROM already has Dual apps option if I'm not wrong, like whatsapp etc. Unless you mean something else which again isn't what I'm looking for.

If I just root the stock ROM I can remove system or unwanted apps myself right? and just debloat on my own terms? I said stock becuase I don't want to face any overheating isues and bad battery life with custom ROMs which I'm currently facing with hades ROM, stock ROM in this sense was amazing, specially the battery life. Sure the phone kind of heats up with prolong use even with stock ROM, but with hades its way too much way too often which is worrying I might end up damaging my phone instead.

Custom Pie ROMs are based on stock ROM so they're as fluid as stock.
Dual App mods means every app are compatible with this feature.

You can uninstall everything you want since you are rooted.

    The ROM is based on the Note 9 right? Then there was a very last update last summer, with security patch 2022-07-01. May we get that one last update?

    Disclaimer

    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 v2.0, 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 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.
