Guys, last time I checked, you said that Openkirin ROMs are not working with the Chinese dual-sim models (AL10, AL00 etc.) due to the difference in cellular network or something like that. Is that fixed yet?

i've been throwing this in the telegram chat but so far no nice.

i've been having camera connect issues after the first reboot, tried RROS and LOS (latest betas) and so far no dice

here's my logcat from earlier with RROS, idk why this works only one time. btw, honor 8 FRD-L04, should be in the logcat if that matters.

FRD-L09 is not in the devices list yet but FRD-L19 which is similar - just more space (64 GB). I will try RROS 6 by OpenKirin today.

Sent from my FRD-L09 using XDA Labs

Device list? On the OK website? Or FF? Either way, Oreo has been available for the L09 since the beginning of July and it's well known if you search the forum here that OK supports the h8. Update via hurupdater to Oreo then follow the instructions on the OK website. I'm on omni with my L04

Just making sure, camera working? Also there is no brightness bug like on stock? Interested to try RR if camera working

Stock camera works. I believe it has a few hiccups, but since being on Omni I've experienced no issues. Not sure what brightness bug you speak of (never had it on stock personally) but the screen all the way tuned down is brighter than what stock would be.

Yes, I meant OK site. I didn't say anything about the availability or something else. :rolleyes:

I installed RROS today. Working fine so far. :good:

RR working good on L09. There is two camera apps installed one is LA version and another one is Stock based camera app. Good news is stock camera app working for both lenses. Finally I can move from boring EMUI and brightness bug for some apps like Chrome, Solid Explorer and Gmail. For root access, install Magisk Manager and the root access. Thank you OK <3

Installed Magisk, follow steps using RAMDISK.img (from the stock Oreo I flashed before RRos), got a patched boot.img.
But when I try to flash with adb, it doesn't. It gives an error:

fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img
target reported max download size of 471859200 bytes
sending 'boot' (9282 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.308s]
writing 'boot'...
FAILED (remote: partition length get error)
finished. total time: 0.325s

The correct command would be:

fastboot flash ramdisk patched_boot.img

Got it, thank you.
Do you know by any chance, what system apps to hide in Magisk? I know what user apps I want to hide...
I also get "The response is invalid" for Safetynet check.

Everyone gets invalid response currently. Google changed their servers, you can read about it online, just search safetynet issue in google.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/safetynet-fails-matter-response-ins-t3829115

I don't know what apps you would like to hide in magisk, I personally only hidden one (netbank app).

    Do you and the other devs consider making an EMUI 8 vendor port of AOSP Android 10 after some security patches?
    I won't make any promise, but thats the goal actually - including automated monthlies.

    little update: i got myself a honor 8, and we're actively bringing back the legacy support, expect final releases with latest security patches for omni and rr in the near future.

    Hello and thank you for this awesome work! :)
    Does LineageOS ROM have OTA updates for newer builds?
    OTA updates are still WIP.
    Monthly security patches/base updates are guaranteed - it's a matter of security for me.
