This rom has been discontinued. hadesRom v3 - 7.1.1 is here.

Some personal thoughts:
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation;
- bug reports without device variant and logs can't be considered bugs - make sure you provide detailed info when reporting bugs;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- feel free to donate to me if you want to support my work;
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

How about bugs?
This is a port rom so expect some bugs due to the fact that all features and mods including in this rom are supposed to be running on a device with a different hardware structure. However i tried to fix most of the issues and provide a rom for daily use.
Major issues for your info:

  • Flash and report

Can i jump from aryamod to hadesrom without wipe?
If you want to try, make a backup first. I recommend clean flash to avoid issues caused by incompatible data.
@corsicanu, is there a way to change S8+ boot to A5 2017 without re-flashing? I'd like to because of improper resolution.
Unfortunately no. Only way is to reflash. Cheers!

@corsicanu, the ROM is epic! Just a few things to mention:

- Wallpaper changing and icon reordering takes a lot.
- Could you add ROM Manager back? I really miss that, especially that I can't tweak UI and disable head to change profile on notification panel.
- You could move down a bit the icons on home screen (that 4 down). Is it upside because of the selectable navigation bar?
- Xposed stopped working twice during boot but it works now.
(- Edge Weather panel doesn't work.)

If I encounter the recovery freeze, can I flash the same zip from the Aryamod thread ?
Also what about Sound mods ?

If any new update comes, can I dirty flash or have to wipe and flash clean?

Whoops, SmartSwitch doesn't work. Neither older versions. If someone backed up data by SS, I advise to go back to AryaMOD, restore data and save to Samsung Cloud. Cheers!
