Some information you should know..

• This is full Galaxy Note 8 port with Android version 9.0/OneUi 1.0

• You are not allowed to use this base, aroma, or any part of it for your own "ROM"
• Any sort of "Kanging" will be reported without hesitation.

Before you post : READ everything, and especially the install steps and F.A.Q, the rom has been tested thoroughly for a long time, so if you have an critical issue like not booting or something major, you missed the instructions, posts that are irrelevant to this project will be ignored(Constructive criticism is welcomed). If you do face a new bug however, don't just say "hey bug here fix now" provide more information, and a LOGCAT, bug reports without log-cats will most likely be ignored.

Read this F.A.Q While the rom is Downloading.

Q: Not passing SafteyNet.

A : Not sure what went wrong, you could flash SafteyNet Magisk module to fix it.

Q: How to use face unlock ?
A : Unfortunately face unlock feature is removed officially by Google.

Q: Can I dirty flash over Version Z.X.Y ??
A : You can give it a shot but I'm not responsible for any errors.

Q: How to use Samsung-Pay ?
A : If you are here you should know already, Once you trip Knox, You cant, Forever.

Q: Why Phone volume is too high ?
A : Maybe because you choose dual speaker mod in aroma, Re-flash ROM and don't tick dual speaker option.

Q: How to Get VoLte/Wifi calling ?
A : Make sure you ticked correct OMC option in Aroma.

    kill switch probably doesn't care anymore really interesting problem. I've been using it for about a month. are you rooted maybe a root add-on is giving this error. I just flashed this rom. I didn't download root or anything else affecting the system. I'll say download Floyd but you probably downloaded it and it seemed slow. Floyd 6.6 will be released soon. I suggest you try

    I'm sorry ?? I don't care ?? because I've left the community for several months due to personal issues it suddenly became that i don't care my ROM's, If you got serious issues with the ROM, Help me by sending Logs, Guides all over Google on how to extract Log.
    Have a nice day!!

    I thought I was the problem, but not me. The problem is in the rom. It gives a System Error, and it saddens me that you haven't been interested in this problem for several weeks, even though I have told it. @Kill-Switch

    View attachment 5314175
    You say You've told me about the issue, But this is the first time i see such error, If you really want me to invest time on fixing a serious bug do me a favor and send me some logs :) and if i had time I'll try my best to fix it.
