Hello everyone,
I need your help please. After almost one year with the Light Rom, I decided to try this Rom. I did standard wipes (with Twrp recovery) and started the installation of this rom. After 100% was reached, the screen turned off and since than there are no life signs. I tried several strategies, holding power button for al least one minute (!!!), both alone and in combination with volum up/down and home button. I tried also those strategies with the charging cable plugged, even no life signs. No signs even connectig the phone to my computer. My last strategy has been, until today, to wait for the battery completely discharge (two days ago tha charge was about 40%): even no life signs. I am losing my hope, do you have some suggestions?
Thank you for your time.
State your device+model?
Which twrp version are you using
Did you tried power+vol. Down combo to force restart the device .
If above combo didn't work then either your battery is faulty or you have done something wrong but above combo should work to force restart device...

Hello,
thanks for your reply firstly! My device is the italian one (exynos model, SM-G935F); I don't remember wich version of twrp I used (and I cannot check for it because not even the recovery mode works) but it's 9 months old more or less (I installed it before flashing the previous ROM). Speaking about combo, I tried every possible one for every holding time (even one or two minutes!), with and without the charging cable or USB cable. There are no life signs, neither simply the classical vibration plugging the charging /USB cable. I don't know if I made a mistake, but the installation progress reached 100%; in addition, in every smartphone I have had and modded before, if something was wrong, there were always life signs, such as download or recovery mode. Now it's really different and I don't understand the problem at all.

The problem of app names being single line. It only happens when the navigation bar is hidden. Can you fix this? This has been tried on Floyd Q and no problem has been seen. I also love BlackDiamond roms and have been using it for a long time. If the new version comes, I will continue to use it. (A request) The speaker sound quality is very good but can it return to v5.1 settings? These are just questions. You do or don't do the job you will know. What matters to me is that you take me seriously and answer my questions seriously. Thank you.

I'm currently using an old ROm version from 2017 under Nougat. So, I've first to update to stock firmware 8.0 Oreo with Odin and then Install the ROM ?
Found nothing about custom TWRP ? Official one no good ?

Thanks in advance

Yes iIt would be better to update to latest stock Oreo first so you can update the bootloader and modem (or use blcp flash zip), if you update you will not be able to return to nougat as the binary will change to 7 or 8 depending on your countries stock firmware.
Stock TWRP 3.3.1 (F international variant) from official site will be good enough for flashing the rom.

Thank you ! So in order not to make mistakes :


  1. When stock firmware will be installed, then unable OEM Unlock and usb debugging?
    Install TWRP 3.3.1.0 with ODIN, no need to install No-Verity-Opt-Encrypt ?
    Flash the ROM
    Flash Magisk v20.4
    Reboot and restore

That's all ?
Which way is the best to restore app with data ?
V8 download is a so slow ... 100 ko/s max and most of the time 0 ko/s. Restart it 4 times, nothing better ...

No need to flash dmverity zip just flash twrp via odin and formate data in twrp (type yes to formate) then do all wipes already mentioned in installation guide and flash the rom, if you want root then flash magisk zip.

Personally i use migrate app to restore apps and data which requires root permission and i didn't encounter any issue but as recommended by the dev. restoration of data can also cause issues so its better to stay clean..

    I just came back to this ROM again after 3 months using DotOS. Maybe I will stay on this ROM until v11 or stable DotOS release. BD is my fav ROM period.
    I have tried other ROMS just to see if they offer anything different, not because I was unhappy or had issues with this ROM. Always come back because it is a great ROM, the best out there IMHO. The dev is really helpful too, which makes a big difference.

    Using this amazing rom almost a year and it's the best custom rom I have ever tested (v9-v10) and this morning I flashed v10 again but I could not find the blackdiamond tweak app and the HKTweaks app which I was previously had (No Viper in Aroma installer too) but found HKTweaks app from the mentioned source but I cannot find that blackdiamond tweak app.

    Also the face unlock feature is missing too and I know google had taken away that but I had that feature(and those tweak apps) in your ROM before I flashed it again till this morning.
    Any fixes please?

    Thanks
    Face unlock (Trusted Face) can be found under Settings/Lock screen/ Smart lock. However, you must set up your pin/pattern and ALL of your fingerprints during the initial setup. If you skip this step (the default is Swipe) then you will not find Trusted Face anywhere.

    If you forget to do the above and require Trusted Face then you will need to factory reset and start again.

    Welcome to BlackDiamond N8 ROM For Galaxy S7/S7E



    Some information you should know..

    • This is full Galaxy Note 8 port with Android version 9.0/OneUi 1.0
    • This ROM is made with collaboration from @corsicanu make sure to give him some coffee
    • Read the instructions and the F.A.Q before installing the ROM or posting a reply as there are important information in there.
    • 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.

    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.
