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.
• If you like this ROM and appreciate my effort, Hit the Thanks button and consider to send me some drugs
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.

3. Download and copy the ROM to your device
4. Wipe everything (SYSTEM,DATA,CACHE,DALVIK and if possible INTERNAL STORAGE)
5. Flash the ROM.zip (Select only what you will use in bloat otherwise it will fail due to system size)
6. Setup your ROM and READ the F.A.Q for more information
7. After a successful boot. You can flash Magisk if you need ROOT.

• Gear Watch Connection(I still don't know why it can't work + I don't own a gear watch)
• Fingerprint in secured apps like PayPal or some Bank apps(Can't be fixed because we are forced to use old McRegistery bins)
