The camera is solved! But he is still very unstable.
I have found a way to use the front lens. Long press the camera icon and there will be a selfie option. Just click on it. If you want to return to the main lens, select Auto. I hope I can help everyone.

But the Internet is very unstable. I hope there is a solution, such as the Galaxy Store can’t work, I don’t know if there are other methods, and there are other methods such as Bixby Vision, after installing the latest APK, it shows that it needs be updated, but I can’t updated. Galaxy Store, I need help.

myGalaxyPhone:GalaxyNote5 N9208

Please help me.

My G9250 cannot flash it, and TWRP shows "symlink some symlinks failed". I tried to use a different TWRP, and it still did. I don’t need to be able to use a SIM card. How can I flash it. (I'm from China, don't speak English, forgive me)

indeed camera and hardware composer (among other bugs) have been resolved, it has few stuff left to iron out however, mainly video recording is a bit tricky to get working, should be fixable i hope. but i need to allocate more time to the project, as i have to pretty much make the entire rom and kernel from scratch. as there are many stupid mistakes in it

as a TLDR; If i manage to get recording working, that means we will have a Stock camera, meaning no more issues with 3rd party apps, QR code issues, camera switching issues etc. just pure stock camera.

so do wish me luck to see this through, as i did not expect this was ever going to be fixed
I love this rom, because it's what making my note 5 feel alive and i hope the best of luck for you to fix all the camera bug 👍👍👍

As far as I can tell, most roms are the same only with minimal customization changes. They all have the same issues like battery drain, heating, and especially camera bugs. This makes me think that they have the same base rom. Does it mean that all roms will have working cameras (if the developers update them) once you manage to update yours?

unlikely since my fix is aimed at oneui pie. other ROMs such as AOSP dont need it as far as i know.
the drain / heating it will depend, right now they are caused by the kernel, but once fixed, i cant guarantee android 9 will run without heating up the device, maybe not to the same extent as V5.1 but it will be higher than stock, simply because the SOC is not that great.

I see, then AOSP/LineageOS based ROMs have camera issues that make it very difficult to record a video which are different than TouchWiz/OneUI based ROMs.

As for heating, if the kernel is configured better (which I'm guessing is trial&error, that is if the process is similar to building your own kernel for a Linux distribution), you are saying that it will cause less heating, yet it will never be as performant as it is on stock simply because this higher version of Android/OneUI requires more power to run smoothly compared to stock Nougat.

    I tried this one on my N920G and worked fine, just the video camera issue.

    Now I am on LineageOS and I am very happy so far. The best I tried on this model.

    Best wishes
    Are you on LineageOS Android 10 rom? As far as I know, that one had overheating/battery issues as well as the typical camera problems like video recording with audio.

    You quoted me but I don't see your reply.

    On LineageOS 17.1-20210225-UNOFFICIAL-noblelte, Android 10.

    Video recording available. but I am realizing now that it records video as soon audio recording stops. I mean: 1. I turn on camera 2. start video recording 3. As soon it records I speak to try audio while video taking.
    4. Record finished 5. Go to files and play it. 6. Something weird happens:

    Audio plays first while video freezes, next, video plays with no audio.

    Battery OK, No heating at all

    V5.1 Notes
    This is a minor update to resolve a bunch of reported errors and ones that were discovered after the release, they only addresses the bugs / changes in the changelog, this does not touch camera or anything else. this is mostly to fix networking and kernel issues reported in V5. also some minor improvements. as mentioned before, this remains an EOL version. i dont plan on rebasing to the March update, by the time im done with it and with testing, April will be out

    V5.0 Notes
    Here we are again, with another major release, what initially started as couple bug fixes ended up being its own fully fledged ROM. with tons of fixes and improvements to make this the ultimate Pie update for this device. and perhaps the Last. i can see no way at the moment of improving upon this release, which means my efforts hopefully will be focused towards Q if it ends up being viable and i find motivation to do so. id like to give a big shoutout to @corsicanu for his awesome V12 Base, that by itself includes a ton of improvements and id like to thank the testers for working with me on this one, its a massive ROM to say the least.

    Hope you like it, and as always please read the notes and F.A.Q to understand how to use this ROM so you dont fall in issues. if you appreciate what i do here, consider donating @ Paypal

    V4 Notes

    Hey everyone, Finally after a long time V4 is here. ive put 10 times more effort into this compared to the previous releases. Tons were changed and the entire ROM was built up from scratch. everything rom the rom to the kernel was fully remade and improved. 30K Downloads later on V3.
    Today happens to be my 22nd Birthday, and i would like to give you all a gift instead.

    This Version is without a doubt the biggest ROM ive worked on to date, through development challenges, special device issues , ROM Size and tons more, it was exhausting. however
    the end result makes it all worth it. testers on multiple variants / devices / configs came back positive.
    While the buglist still leaves some to be desired i think this is as good as i can make it for now. maybe in the future if there was a V5 we will see it reduced.

    The changelog is massive, and to summarize it, many annoying things in V2/V3 were finally resolved including the most important thing which is CALLING. US variants are finally properly supported. except the ones that use QMUX modems. maybe that will be for another day

    As always, THANK YOU for being dedicated to this project. and special thanks to @DR_Amoxicillin @corsicanu @TheOGLunarixus and my testers for helping both directly and indirectly

    I hope you Enjoy the ROM. if you appreciate this project consider donating @ Paypal

    V3 Notes

    Hey everyone, Somehow we are still standing with this project, it is as horrible as it seems, yet fun. I started this project 8 months ago to "flex" only, turns out people enjoy it including myself, Through Oreo and Pie this project has been hell to make yet i think we are at a state were we can drop the ALPHA and BETA labels of!, V3 was in active development for over 2 months (Unlike V2 where i started a month before release) This one was carefully built, and entirely from scratch (For the third time). However i understand, you guys are tired of Note7FE. and want something different, Thanks to my partner @corsicanu that is possible. He crafted one of the best feature-full roms on xda. HadesRom and with that as a base for our project, This device became something else, something amazing. and honestly better than any rom i would have made feature wise. Thanks to him and All the flagship features such as infinity wallpapers, Some S10 Features and many others are present, the aroma is PACKED with goods. This rom is around 200/300 MB larger than the previous one (which wasn't small to begin with) however i believe it is worth it. Me and [MENTION=7098450]kill-switch[MENTION] and my testers spent alot of time perfecting it, Now we support every variant that uses Exynos7420 besides china variants, those are to come later. the US variants of the S6E+ And Note 5 are supported too. I will be making a dedicated S6 thread aswell
    While i am 100% sure not all users will have the same experience, i believe the vast majority will enjoy it, As always this rom is NOT for everyone, if you want a stock camera, this aint it chief. no matter how much we want it, it is just not gonna happen any time soon if ever, thats just the nature of developing a rom that is 2 major versions beyond samsung. if you dont mind the limitations mentioned below, Enjoy it as much as possible.
    And as always, if you appreciate this project and want to support us , press thanks, share your opinions and help the people in this thread who are struggling. I wont be available 24/7 to do so.
    You can also help us purchase more cocaine to continue development by donating me Here or @corsicanu here or @Kill-Switch here or @Lunarixus Here

    V1/V2 Notes :
    So. 5 months ago i posted this ROM. big mistake, it means i have to maintain it, which i suck at. after 2 rebases and finishing V2 twice. OneUI happened for some reason god knows why, but yeah. This ROM is BETA AF. there is alot of crap that needs to be fixed besides the general bugs we had in oreo. give or take, if you are adventurous. go ahead and flash it, if not. dont B*itch in the thread about it and flash another ROM. This ROM is NOT for average ROM users. it is for those who want to be on the bleeding edge.. it wont come out of BETA until the bug list becomes shorter. This ROM is OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED ONLY on the NOTE 5 International variants. its the one i have, the one i can test personally. it will BOOT on N5/S6/S6E And S6E+ and work well relatively speaking if you bother to read the F.A.Q. Korean and US variants are also supported for all those models via Aroma options so take care. however Note 5 US variants might not work. you can try. S6/S6E support is very BETA so use with a grain of salt, a big one. read the f.a.q for tips on how to make the experience suck less.

    Eventually when you discover a new Bug that shouldn't be there, DO NOT SEND ME MATLOGS. CATLOGS or whatever. Follow the guide up there on How to properly send logs. otherwise i wont care less about your post. very simple. Remember that this port is NOT supped to be possible. we should not be running oneUI, but the stars aligned in our favor. And please there is no need to tell me to fix XYZ. if its listed in bugs or was reported. im on it.

    So. TLDR; This may or may not be your daily rom, it depends on who you are. if you want oneUI, this is the price. if not, there are plenty of other ROMs based on Nougat that will work right. so use them instead and let the thread be in peace.

    I sincerely hope the people who end up using this rom have fun, its a fun experience, ive been using it for the past month. and its refreshing.


    Old releases (Booreo)

    Hey Note 5 Community, This is my first project for this device, one of many to come. many of you might know me from my Note4 projects, i have decided to purchase the note5 in order to provide for this community quality ROMs , in hopes that maybe one day everyone here will be using an Oreo based port, instead of living on nougat that samsung left us with.
    Why N7FE and not N8 S9 or any newer port ? Simply said, it is too early for me and the current state of oreo. there is some important stuff that needs ironing out before introducing more bugs. N7FE Struck a great balance between a stable port, and a feature rich one. i have also thrown in alot of additional stuff you can check below.

    Support for other variants will come in the future, i choose to support this small amount due to time constraints.


    RULES OF POSTING : READ everything before commenting, And especially the install steps, the rom has been tested thoroughly for a long time, so if you have an critical issue like not booting or no sim, 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, dont just say "hey bug here" provide more information, and a LOGCAT, bug reports without logcats will most likely be ignored.

    Good idea to read this F.A.Q While the rom is installing

    NOTES :

    Special Notes
    -At all times, be sure to have atlteast 10% free internal storage otherwise random reboots may occur and loss of data
    -Updating gametools (without installing navbar) will break it
    -To avoid gaming issues, make sure GameBooster updates is uninstalled from App manager (show system apps)
    -On first setup, let the phone update everything before using it
    -to keep youtube vanced, untick autoupdates from platstore

    -if your apps are not getting internet, reboot

    Floyd V5.0 F.A.Q

    Samsung Camera Guide
    -Samsung camera only runs when auto brightness is turned off
    -VideoRecording : on front/back go to ProMode > ColorTone > Tone1 > Record
    --Front camera only records well at 720P
    --Videos recorded will be 24~30FPS
    -Selfies : Long press cam icon > select selfie
    --This will switch to front camera
    --To switch to main > long press icon > select auto

    Few notes about the samsung camera, it seems that on the S6 its not very stable. so the best way to lunch selfie is :

    1) Long press camera icon > Selfie
    2) if it FCs, just tap the camera icon again and DONT long press to pick selfie

    Then to switch to back camera long press and select Auto, you should not face any FCs there

    Floyd V4.0 / V5.0 F.A.Q
    Q : No Simcard being detected
    A : Disable / remove SIMLOCK From another device or ROM

    Q : Games are Laggy/Pix-elated/Stutter/sucks/crashes
    A :
    1- settings > advanced features > gamebooter > turn it off
    2- in twrp mount system then use file manager to delete system/app/GameOptimizingService
    i forgot to remove this in V4 and it causes ALOT of issues with games (pix-elated graphics , lag , weird stretches etc)

    Q : Device is running too hot
    A : The best way to go about this is to follow @skywoker guide here : XDA you should still play around with the voltages to find what is most stable for you

    Q : Whatsapp web QR not working
    A : Better and newer workaround : Here
    Old workaround :
    For those, who have problems when trying to use Whatsapp Web:
    1. Go to Developer Options
    2. Change the Smallest Width to 443 dp (443 works for me, try bigger or smaller value)
    3. Switch to WhatsApp and scan QR Code
    4. Restore Smallest Widht to 411 again

    Q : Samsung camera does not turn on
    A : Disable auto brightness (idk why dont ask)

    Q : Some apps lose internet after a while or at first setup
    A : Reboot your device or change process limit in developer options to 2 (due to wifi implementation)

    Q : What is the best camera app ?
    A : For back photos use samsung camera, for videos and selfies use Footej or idan gcam or unixcamera

    Q : Cant lower incall volume on US variants
    A : Side-effect of using AOSP HAL, use hkTweaks > MoroSound > reduce earpiece volume

    Q : How to use GEARVR ?
    A : Download and install GEARVR Setup from APKMIRROR
    P.S : it is very laggy. in order to fix that you need to edit system/build.prop and change SM-N960F to SM-N920C
    However that is likley to break BixbyVoice. and maybe other FE specific features which are unclear now

    Q : how to use GameTools ?
    A : Due to prop being changed to N950F to support bixby, if you want to use Gametools go to settings > apps > show system apps if needed > gametools and UNINSTALL updates
    P.S : You can also disable it from auto updating from there

    Q : My gallery cant sync samsung photos from Cloud
    A : A common bug on oneUI roms from samsung. we are waiting for an update

    Q : How to get Root ?
    A : Download Magisk and MagiskManager from the Official Thread . flash magisk.zip and install the APK

    Q : What to do after the rom is setup ?
    A : Go to samsung apps, let the phone update everything

    Q : My phone does NOT boot help pls
    A : Ensure you have LATEST AF bootloader and modem installed, did all the wipes, and did your house chores,

    -- Oreo version F.A.Q --

    Camera works in apps that have their own jpeg processing, whatsapp, snapchat are some
    HDR+ Might cause weird wobbbling in google camera, avoid it
    For the most optimal feature set, Pick CSC instead of OMC
    - In some countries OMC can lose feature sets
    If you pick OMC be sure to select the RIGHT slection for simcard question at setup wizard
    - Failure in doing that will keep the the popup and no simcard will work
    - You can Pick CSC to avoid this or read the thread instructions

    Q : Camera doesnt open (googlecam)
    A : try to install manually from here

    Q : Phone took alot of time to boot, and is very laggy
    A : pay attention to install steps and reboot if you flashed magisk

    Q : There is SIM popup that keeps coming to ask me for restart
    A : you DID NOT follow the instructions, Reinstall the rom and pay attention

    Q : in the first SIM question in setup wizard, language is not english, what does it say
    A : The RIGHT button is what you need to press, it will factory reset the phone (not touching your internal) and setup your /EFS with an OMC file that is linked to your simcard, so the rom will auto detect your CSC just like official samsung phones

    Q : I dont see any EDGE panels after installing
    A : Reboot the phone

    Q : How is battery Life ?
    A : With some tests and some cycles, it will be better than stock due to optimzations
