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.

There is a possibility that we will get treble with android 9.0 (most likely march), = There is pie rom already in alpha 4 testers

And treble = look my last answer and just hold ur pants :silly:

Until the ROM has been made public, not much people will care. Not anyone can join alpha testers if I'm correct? And if this is legit, is this a PIE note8 specific ROM or did someone find a way to port treble over to Note8?

Port . Some time ago I made a tread on xda writing about treble and custom roms progress . Custom rom's developer ****ed me on 100E .... and I made developer who was porting treble mad . Guy didnt leave from treble on note 8 cuz its still happening but its better that I wont write much more . Its port

Tests . Only developers 4 samsung . No1 else . Beta will be 4 normal users but in ... 2-3 months . Alpha is still fresh

I'm just letting you know you should stop sharing this type of stuff, I'm in the group too and its confidential for a reason..

I pray that we get Treble support or that a talented developer manages to port it over somehow, the Note8 is too good of a phone to be left abandoned without updates after only a year and a half

my S4 always had the latest Android version thanks to talented developers and custom roms for the whole 4 years that I had it! I miss it sometimes ahah I wonder what makes development on the Note8 more difficult, anyone can explain?

We seriously need to figure out how and who we should also to make the note 8 treble compatible.
If someone figures that out, the possibilities will be endless.

Missing LineageOS/AOSP ROMs too buddy - would have bought a different phone if I had had the choice back then.

    LineageOS-Cover.png


    First out of all, I'd like to thank @Fevax for making it possible as well as giving me permission to port it to Note8. I would also like to thank @farovitus for letting me use his awesome Notorious kernel! You can thank them by liking their posts and donating to them! :)

    Brightness Level
    Bluetooth
    Microphone

    LED
    All sensors except fingerprint reader
    SD Card
    S-Pen with hovering

    What’s not working
    RIL (calls, sms, microphone, data) - Doesn't work at all :(. But I'm trying to fix it too. Note: In Resurrection Remix, RIL works partially, IMEI and Baseband detection works, but other stuff is still broken
    NFC
    Camera
