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.

Some personal thoughts:
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation - for extra questions read #4 post;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- if you like my work and want to support the development, you can always send me some pizza/coffee/drugs/drinks or anything else via paypal;
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

Q: Phone is showing YYY model but my phone is ZZZ model, is that normal?
A: Yes, that is very normal and very intented. Do not change it or you will break features.

Q: How to revert back to Oreo?
A1: Download Oreo modem and bootloader from here, flash as normal zip in twrp and flash the Oreo rom of choice.
A2: Download full stock Oreo firmware for your region and flash it with Odin v3.13.*.

Q: Why OEM toggle is missing in this rom?
A: I disabled it to be sure nobody gets locked by mistake.

Q: Magisk app not showing, what to do?
A: Download latest Magisk Manager from here and install as normal app.

Q: My phone shows locked because "Payment services was uninstalled without authorization", how to get rid of it?
A: Unfortunately you need to reflash rom, no wipe needed. Also don't try to debloat the rom again or you will have same issue.

Q: Installation failed, what to do now?
A: First of all make sure you have the official twrp. If the probelm persists try to redownload the zip and/or select less things in Aroma installer. If you still have the problem, probably your device is not supported.

Q: How to report bugs?
A: If you want to report a bug make sure you include:
-device variant / modem version / bootloader version / region
-detailed info about the encountered issue
-steps to reproduce the bug

Q: How to take logs?
A: Download Logcat Extreme and take a look at this.

Q: TWRP can't mount data partition, what to do?
A: Make sure you formatted data partition if your previous rom was stock.

Q: Phone is not booting even after 20 minutes?
A: Try to reboot. If still not booting, make sure you formatted data partition if your previous rom was stock.

Q: How to format data partition?

Q: Phone is asking to reboot because sim changed, what should i do?
A: Reboot once and see if it appears again. If yes reboot again.

Q: Phone asks to wipe data because operator changed, should i wipe?
A: Try to cancel and just reboot. If you can't do that or the popup still appear, reflash the rom and wipe in Aroma installer.

Q: GPS not finding my location, what to do?

I'll give it a go today and report in, not sure if I can fully test as it's already 9:30pm.

Flashed on my N950F bought in Sweden. Damn, that went fast. So far no issues on my phone.
