I'm not really sure yet. I would imagine it's just Odin. Though a flashable bootloader zip for twrp is not floating around yet. I used to make them for other devices but not sure if it's possible for samsung

I thought it would just be for odin but I have been afraid to try. Maybe I'll try to see if I'm able to revert back to 1AQI1 backups.

yash92duster for LightROM does have a flashable zip for TWRP for updating bootloader & modem (his also includes TWRP in). I used his zip to update to BQKG before trying LightROM. Nice cause it's much easier flashing with TWRP than odin. I try to avoid odin whenever possible.

Unfortunately it did not work, VoLTE icon appears again, QKG base w/ weta kernel. Left your modded ims apk installed, put back the aurora kernel again & the icon is gone.

Question if I may ask, I've always been confused about. They say once you upgrade bootloader version to 2, 3, etc you can not downgrade. But does this apply only for odin? If I make a backup of efs & baseband for 2BQKG then upgrade to 3BRA2, can I revert back to 2BQKG us8ng TWRP & the full back up?

If yes I give it another shot with RAx.

I decided to try it. I tried restoring a back to v1 bl, doesn't work. Well it boots but shows baseband as unknown & there's no data connection. Well at least know I know it's true.

I updated to RA2 & tried your zip again, same thing, VoLTE icon still appears. I ended up installing smurf kernel & the icon doesn't appear so that'll make me happy.

Thanks again for the help & for the great ROM!

That systemui tuner app does work. You need to go into touchwiz settings and set that volte icon to off, then go back to normal status bar settings and turn off the rotation lock one. The icon for Volte must be getting drawn from framework or an .spr file which i cant change without looking into it more. You also have to be careful adding things to icon blacklist manually as samsung does its own version of it. You can end up with two sets of blacklist settings which causes a SystemUI crash. The systemui tuner app gets around this by removing and restoring the settings on each reboot. Ill keep my tmobile csc in place today and mess with the imsservice apk a bit more, i don't like the blacklist method with samsung, it cause issues without realizing it.

Thanks for testing. That's strange, I couldn't get the app to work for me for the VoLTE icon. The rotation & alarm clock toggles did work perfectly fine though & on the fly. Before installing, I set icon black list back to null then after installing system ui I checked with the get command. "Volte" was in there but the icon still showed.

Didn't see a need for the app so I uninstalled & went back to using the adb icon blacklist method as it was basically the same. Been using that method since I got the Note 8 for the alarm clock icon. Had to add rotation also as adding anything other than null will make the rotation icon appear.

With Marshmallow imsservice.apk was edited to replace the .qmg files with dummy/blank icons. For Nougat there are png files instead but as you said there are probably spr files as well. I don't know what to use to view/edit the samsung spr files.

But at least the use of certain kernels makes the Volte icon hidden, not sure why, but I'm ok with that solution. With stock fw & kernel & just TWRP/root the icon was hidden. It was also strange that when I tried using the imsservice.apk from the previous version fw would make both RCS & VoLTE icons appear.

Is it possible to remove the Emergency Mode button from the power menu for Weta Mod 4.0? Weta 3.2 did not have it. I simply tried using the services.jar from 3.2 with RA2/4.0 but it causes hang & reboot whenever trying to install an app from the Play Store or Galaxy Store. Thanks

I am really appreciating WETA. Thanks for your efforts.

As usual, I'm a bet dense but, I'm not clear on the installation of audio options. Currently I've only installed my long time fave- Viper. Am I wrong to think I can only have one audio mod installed?

I've implemented your previous advice w/r/t Viper settings, some of which were revelations (which is why this site is so great)..

A question if I may? What exactly is your WETA audio mod?

Weta drivers subtly boost bass and clarity, but the results vary depending on the use. It helped me a lot in car Bluetooth, this can be installed alongside any mods in weta.

You can install only one V4a version, but can install either Dolbys or even both Dolbys if that's what you wanted. Just be careful, with the dual speaker mod and Dolby, as Dolby is very effective at boosting volume which could cause hardware failure I suppose.

Sorry, I don't mean to bug but just wondering if you had a chance to make the change for Weta 4.0?

Thanks

    BACKUP EFS!!! this rom will not do this for you. I myself have bricked an s8+ that didn't have a backup...
    Backup DATA!!! just in case.

    Wipe Data if you are coming from another rom or version base if you have crashes or other issues before reporting.
    Format SDCard if coming from stock encrypted

    OEM Jail, The dreaded 7 day oem lockout

    With the discovery of rlc and the disabling off rmm lock. There have been far fewer instances of folks being thrown in oem jail. But still some are. Below is a method that may get you out of 7 day jail instantly. This hasn't been tested by me, as I've never had it happen to me.. but give it a try

    1. Enter settings, turn off auto detect time
    2. Change time to over 7 days ago. It seems like good practice to change it to a month earlier, to be sure.
    3. Enter firmware update and turn off auto updates then manually check for update.
    4. Reboot, and the OEM switch should be present.

    End of the road

    I've been dabbling in other device relationships in the past month, and I'm sorry to say this is the end of this rather "long" relationship with the note 8 for me. (Long for this guy anyway).

    11.1 is the final installment. I wish you all well and may see you in the note 9 forums some day.

    Boomshanka.
