Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - SM-N950U

I’d like to run /e/ on my Galaxy Note 8. If possible, I would like to participate in providing the build. I’m a software dev, and would like to learn how to port Android ROMs to new devices.

Supported Android versions:

  • Nougat
  • Oreo
  • Pie

Same here, I’d be interested!

Samsung builds two models of the Galaxy Note8. Once with Samsung Exynos for the EMEA regions and once with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for the USA and China regions.

The model you mentioned, SM-N950U, runs with Qualcomm Snapdragon - and is therefore neither supported by LineageOS nor LightROM or /e/ OS, because these “Best ROMs for Galaxy Note8” all work with the Exynos 8895 chipset.

For the Samsung Note 8 “greatlte” with Exynos chipset, /e/ OS 9-Pie is in planning.

There are several tutorials about /e/ OS image building in the /e/ forum .For example:
[HOWTO] Build /e/
[HOWTO] Build /e/ without docker
[HOWTO] build eOS in old fashioned way with breakfast -- now with interactive script)

Thanks I will try ASAP

I wanted to keep my Data partition untouched from the samsung ROM but it seems to make any attempt to bootloop

Spent few hours trying steps from here

But all I got is Bootloop

Actually it seems that I get 2 system partition after the treble repartitioning which may explain

Thanks
