    The required libraries for FM support are missing.
    /system/lib/libaudiopolicymanagerdefault.so
    /system/lib64/libaudiopolicymanagerdefault.so
    FM radio simply won't work on korea's rom, it's a limitation of the korean firmware. If you really want fm radio, either use stock, hades or riseq (which i can recommend)

    Probably not, at most another security patch update if samsung releases one.
    Bug fixes such as radio and 2nd sim data will only be fixed if someone finds a fix in the future, but i wouldn't get my hopes high.
    Even then, samsung have dropped the a series 2017 from official support so it's seriously unlikely that there will be another patch
    Then I will wait for these fixes. This is the best custom firmware for this device. I don't want another firmware.)))
    Really don't keep your hopes high for 2nd SIM data and fm radio since these are broken because they aren't supported in Korean firmware, you'll have to use another rom for those

      [ROM][9][OneUI] Korea's rom for A5|7 2017

      As you probably know by now a Korean variant of A7 2017 has recently received firmware update to android 9 and OneUI. I made it working on my international variant and cleaned it up, so I'm sharing with the community.

      Code:
      /*
      * Your warranty is now void.
      *
      * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
      * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
      * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
      * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
      * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
      */

      However, if you still feel like you are missing features it is still recommended to flash an addons zip. So I linked the post above to the OP.

      FAQ
      Is it possible to flash stock oreo firmware after using this rom?
      Yes, of course. Flashing this rom doesn't update your bootloader.

      Some apps (eg. banking, Netflix) refuse to work.
      Permissive kernel which is shipped in the latest build doesn't pass SafetyNet. Luckily, there are ways to bypass this such as flashing Magisk.

      I have A5 2017, but battery capacity shows 3600mAh.
      You can ignore this. That's only in about phone. The kernel knows your true battery capacity.

      How to add csc codes
      Korean base doesn't support multi-csc. But we can still unlock region-related features by using special codes. I won't post them here, you should search around xda for the specific one that you need.

      For example here I will be adding network speed indicator in the status bar. The code for this is:
      Code:
      <CscFeature_Setting_SupportRealTimeNetworkSpeed>TRUE</CscFeature_Setting_SupportRealTimeNetworkSpeed>
      But you can add something else, too.

      You'll need a PC. Steps to take are:
      1. Download THIS zip to your PC.
      2. Extract the zip.
      3. Open system/csc/others.xml with Notepad.

        It looks like this:
        Code:
        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <SamsungMobileFeature>
          <FeatureSet>
            <CscFeature_Setting_ConfigOpMenuStructure>GLOBAL</CscFeature_Setting_ConfigOpMenuStructure>
          </FeatureSet>
        </SamsungMobileFeature>
        Add your code like below:

        Code:
        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <SamsungMobileFeature>
          <FeatureSet>
            <CscFeature_Setting_ConfigOpMenuStructure>GLOBAL</CscFeature_Setting_ConfigOpMenuStructure>
            [COLOR="Red"]<CscFeature_Setting_SupportRealTimeNetworkSpeed>TRUE</CscFeature_Setting_SupportRealTimeNetworkSpeed>[/COLOR]
          </FeatureSet>
        </SamsungMobileFeature>
        Code:
      4. Repack the zip.
      5. Copy to your phone and flash.

      Now when you go to settings -> status bar you should see the network speed indicator toggle appear. Or any other change that you added.

      Updated the KoreanAddons zip.

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZMy4iZ2QVa3WpPG_3ujAi9THbcGNfMPV/view?usp=drivesdk

      Flash at your own risk!

      This should be flashed after flashing the Rom (Preferably after clean rom install).

      What does this do?

      Adds your country's CSC and could add some features,mods of your choice. By adding the CSC of your country it may enable voLTE and other carrier specific features, voWiFi doesn't work as the Korean Pie Rom does not include voWiFi (WiFi Calling) related stuff.

      UPDATE: The previous zip had an issue with the battery cosmetic fix, fixed that. Please redownload.

      UPDATE 2: Fixed again, works with the latest rom version.
