Same as Lineage. Just RIL now works a little better. Now IMEI and Baseband detection works. I tried fixing RIL in both roms by myself but code changes are required to fix it. So once there is a build for S8 with working RIL, I will be able then to port it to Note8. In the meantime @SaschaNes works to build Lineage for Note8. This way a lot more stuff will work.

i'm in love. i'll keep in eye on this until further bugs are gone.
woot woot glad the 1300 dollars note 8 was worth it lol

I paid around 1200 for it and the lack of roms is pretty sad for me :(. We only have like 2-3 SEx based roms and now 2 AOSP roms. Probably most devs just got S8 instead. But I'm hoping that once prices go down, more people will get Note8. I like this phone so much that I will probably never sell it.

In the meantime I'm planning to make more roms for it. I'd love to port FlymeOS to it but sadly no Meizu phone uses exynos8895. In the worst case I will just continue my HRS series. But for now I will take care of AOSP ports until we get our own builds.

Im still into it to make a first lineage build, so we have a source for our device.

A good day is today!
It was finally solved! The Samsung galaxy note 8 has it first LineageOS build.

Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6ybtniO4g1-TGMyaHJBdDhReUU

What doesn't work?
(I don't own a Note8, so this could be false)
- RIL
...(don't know any much more, please tell me here)

Again, if you want to help us, donate to me so I could get a note 8 and work faster on this project :)

    There's a new version of Lineage 14.1 which is almost fully stable and RIL and stuff works. But soon we should have a "more official" release with even more stuff that works. So soon I will post the update :).

    treble for note 8? how?

    No treble for note8.
    There is a possibility that we will get treble with android 9.0 (most likely march), but in order to do that, they will have to replace /cache with /vendor , and have updates be installed in recovery mode from /data/ota .
    It's just too much work for the back-end stuff regular users are not gonna notice.
    So there is just a 0.1% chance that we will get treble.
    It would be cool if it happened but don't get your hopes up.
    It is so irritating that phones like J4 and J6 can have treble but the 2017 FLAGSHIP can't.
    Of course, they were shipped with oreo.
    But even /cache solution is a tricky one.
    /data partition is encrypted, so if they can't get the stock recovery to read it, then either no OTA updates, or no treble.
    And they can't make a new partition because our /data partition is at the end of GPT, in our case sda21, and we would have to format the /data to create /vendor.
    See where I'm going with this?
    If sda21 was system, and sda15 was data, they could just wipe, repartition, and install system files and vendor files. Only thing we need from samsung is treble kernel support and to slightly modify vendor files. Of course, treble COULD be ported over, but it would be buggy.
    We can port it because, here on XDA, we know how to backup and restore, so formatting /data doesn't do that much, but for someone who can barely make a call, it wouldn't do the job.
    And that's why samsung will most likely skip treble for 2017 flagships. Note8 was released september 2017, and they already knew about project treble, so they could have just left 500 mb of unpartitioned space, and there... I mean OnePlus did it with 5 and 5t
    It was most likely because it would be weird to have s8 that doesn't support treble, and to have a Note8 that does. At least from samsung point of view.
    As for Lineage OS, there will HARDLY be a bootable lineage 16, let alone a bugless masterpiece that is a GSI (or semi-GSI) just because more and more developers are leaving the Note8 development, even those who created modified samsung experience ROMs.
    So there is the situation with our Note8.
    Wrote this just to clear thing up once and for all, because there are people who don't fully get it and have to search the internet for hours and not find an answer.

    Wow! Screenshots please!

    Sure. But I'm fixing bugs currently so I just have two.

    Is this ROM still in development or is it abandoned?
    Like I said, nougat is done. I wait now until rr Oreo comes out. A Oreo los15.1 is already ready
