If anyone is facing lag in games especially 8Ball should follow these steps.

1. Install MTweaks
2. Go to GPU from Left Menu
3. Change GPU Power Policy to always_on
4. Turn on apply on boot

I haven't faced any battery drain or random restart etc using this setting.
Good luck.

Call issues (does not receive calls)

Hi, all in all this Rom is very good,smooth and very nice for day to day use.

I have one problem and that is with receiving calls.

Maybe out of 10 calls made only 4+ are coming through.

So I my friend calls me it will say on his that it's calling with sound but nothing come up on this Rom.
After 2+ attempts it finally comes up on my phone.

No miss calls...


Tried rebooting,turning service off and on and even manually selecting my cell tower but still nothing.

Please give me some more diagnosis to try if missed out any.

Im using v9. Everything ok but Ram management is bad for me.

Im surfing at Chrome and clicked video link, opened YouTube and im trying to swotch back Chrome, Chrome re opens Page so note 8 v9 kills every background app. This was an example. Every app same like this.

Using Facebook, clicked Web site link and switched back face, Facebook re starts... How can i solve this? I set up dev settings but still same.

Also camera crashes when taking photo at maximum zoom.

Hello,
Is there still Telegram group, where I can follow up and stay up to date about possible updates or so? When I click on the link from the thread, it's saying that the group no longer exists.
Saw that heart rate sensor is something that is going to be fixed. Cannot take a photo with hearth sensor press.
V5 - s7 flat :) p.s rom is really gr8! Thanks for the hard work!

    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.

    • AOD Tap to Wake( Can't be fixed because our panel drivers needs to be updated and we can't use NFE drivers)
    • Gear Watch Connection(I still don't know why it can't work + I don't own a gear watch)

    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.
