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!

If the telegram group says no longer exists, that means you are banned from the group or have been kicked for some reason

Here we go again,This time with BlackDiamond N8 PIE V10.

Changelog:

1. Re-Based to N950FXXSCDTF1 JULY 2020 Patch
2. Re-Base includes Samsung fix to wallpaper bug
3. Fixed RAM management
4. Re-Fixed HRM(Heart Rate Sensor)
5. Re-Fixed ScreenRotation Toggle
6. Updated GoodLock apps
7. Added Cronos V5.0 Kernel

This is a new base so it's better to do clean flash and ofc restoring apps using Titanium Backup isn't recommended at all.

Thanks to @ananjaser1211 for letting me borrow his device so i can rebase ?

Thx to keep updating this great Rom till now.
Maybe you can think about to add RC in the Aroma optionally in future update. I know you dont like much tweaking the UI/ RC, cause you like fluidity of the Rom and all that, but I noticed RC control was present optionally in NFE Rom. And was fine, much better than using Xposed module to tweak the UI. Because some got broked screen, and it sometime help to be able to move so stuff to be able to see them...
Of course it is just an idea, anyway again thx for all your great work ;)
Why?? Because some got broked screen and it would be nice to can move to stuff arund to be able to screen them like clock or others.....
Of course it is just an idea.
Again thx a lot for all your great work

I don't have any issues with RC as long as it's optional in Aroma. Why it got removed from new releases? The responsible guy of modding and doing RC has unfortunately changed his device and i really don't have that much knowledge about RC+Modding even though there are guides all over XDA but it takes time to understand them and how to install them properly into System files.

i found another bug in the camera.
When zooming for more than 4x and shooting photos in bright outdoor light, the camera crashes and show this message: "server error occurred. Restart camera."

Another great jop from Kill-Switch.
Thank you very much.

I still have problem with auto rotate screen. Starting from V8 and now V10. Whatever I do the screen will keep turning to landscape.
It is a hardware issue most likely.

Is there anyone facing the same??

Plus >>

WIFI range ..
V8 was very nice. Now it is much lower.
Before i get signal at my computer disk very easily but now I have to move about two meters closer to the router to get the signal.

Rotation acts normally here,Regarding WIFI Samsung updated the drivers it might be the reason but honestly i don't see a difference in the range between my S9+ and S7E.

    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.

    Hi, where can i get a working download link? The AFH link is extremely slow and it always blocks at some point.
    Thank you for your help :)

    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.
