I have no idea either to be honest
I'm using v1.2 of IronMan Rom on my S7 flat using latest bootloader and modem.
After switching from IronKernel to stock using dirty flash, i believe my hotspot stopped working. The toggle goes on then off and nothing happens.
Shall i reflash IronKernel and see if it works again? I wanted to stay with stock for better battery performance.
The hotspot is dependant on the kernel, ou are correct there. Since stock is... stock and not modded, there aren't any fixes included.
In other words: to use the mobile hotspot, you need to use the ironkernel
On IronMan 2.0.0...
1. I don't see the option in IronControl to set volume keys to media
2. Any specific way to get V4A working (with SuperSU)? Every time I open the app, it requires driver to be installed which it does, then after re-boot it asks again.
Thanks as always for the great work!
1. Yes because it's not included in oreo
- Updated to latest linux 4.9.109
- Updated EAS (Energy Aware Scheduler) to latest r1.5
- Changes there are:
- Removal of sched-freq (mainline schedutil should be used instead)
- Basic support for DynamIQ DSU little-sync support (min frequency capping)
- Improved performance for 'EnergyDiff' calculation
- Immediate force-migration of misfit tasks
I have sold the s8 due to time limitations. I won't be able to develop for it any longer
I know this ROM is EOL but since it's quite new maybe you still have an idea.
I have a very strange behaviour with Batman Rom Final. Nearly every time I reboot the phone I get a black Screen with just the Samsung Sidebar Showing. I can reboot 3-4 times if I'm lucky systemui starts after some tries..
What always helps is. Boot into recovery, delete Dalvik/ART cache and reboot. I use the Modded UI on ODEX Rom. Well previously I used DEODEXED and when this problem started occurred I thought it's because DEODEXED ROM and dirty flashed with ODEX Version (left everything as it was). Problem persists. I think the first time it happened.
Any Idea why SystemUI locks up unless I delete Dalvik? Can it still be because I previously used DEOXEDED ROM? But system partition is deleted afaik even witha dirty flash right?
The issue only happens with odex, not with deodexed (and most likely only with some settings in framework romcontrol enabled)
With odex, all framework mods DON'T work, why? Because it gets overwritten by the stock odex files in framework (which are of course NOT modded and hence don't contain my code). However the modded UI includes custom reboot options (which come from the framework). If those are missing (for instance when using the odex version) you will face the exact problem you describe. To overcome this, simply flash the rom with deodexed version.
How to fix deodex lagging issue you may ask? Just don't chose any root method for the first boot. That will allow the dalvik-cache to be built normally. After the first boot you can flash magisk without any issues (till you delete dalvik-cache once again)
I can easily reproduce it again. Just dirty Flash the ROM and it appears. Modify fingerprints and it starts working. How should I catch the logs? What logs exactly would help you?
With adb logcat commands (there are good guides on xda). But anyway this rom is EOL and no further updates given. Also everything to the fingerprint is fully stock.. I don't know what I can do about it

-> this means you can use the Please login to see this link. app too!
- Maybe something else, I have possibly already forgot it
Now to the main issue:
I don't know if you heard about that problem but Oreo roms have problems with building dalvik-cache when the rom is fully deodexed. Hence the rom lags and is damn slow all over the place unless you use odex framework. I have patched the sepolicy for this purpose and it works fine BUT (and that's the main problem):
Magisk does replace this patched sepolicy. What does this mean for you as user?
My suggestion is to flash the rom without any root method installed. Then boot your device one time and set up your phone. In this first boot, the dalvik-cache could be built with this patched sepolicy file in the kernel.
I'm sure many people won't follow my advice here and face the laggy system. Please help them with this answer here, thank you dear readers
Similar to your post, I copied all missing files from the folder of the working system to the Batman system.
dhd_bus_download_firmware: firmware path=/vendor/etc/wifi/bcmdhd_sta.bin_b0, nvram path=/vendor/etc/wifi/nvram_mfg.txt_murata_r033_b0
Must be one or both of these two files is missing.
With this it works!
Thank you very much. Hope you can include them in the next build or other project.
Since this rom is EOL I'm not going to release a new version for it.
But I hope if other people have similar issues they find this thread and now know how to fix it!
Have a good time and see you around
Thanks for the S Power Planning although it's quite simplistic.
Now for the fingerprint. As you said it should work I was playing around by adding retina scan, face unlock and also adding 2 more fingerprints so I have a total of 4 fingerprints not just 2 like before.
Guess what, now with 4 fingerprints it works. Maybe I'll delete the superfluous ones to see if it breaks again work only 2 fingerprints... Otoh, why changing a working system.
Any idea what was causing this?
No idea, if I knew it I would have given you a good solution right away. I'm glad it works now. If it appears again try to catch some logs!
Have fun !
Following is just run on this S8:
dreamlte:/ # uname -a
Linux localhost 4.4.128-BatKernel_SM-G950F_V2.1.1-Final #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Apr 19 20:47:09 CEST 2018 aarch64
I'm pretty sure this is your kernel
Regarding MCC: Please login to see this link. all I know about it. But given the firmware not loaded I doubt this it is.
dreamlte:/ $ ls system/vendor/etc/wifi
I'm honest with you if this does not work I don't know what else I could try. So
Can you paste the attached file into /system/vendor/etc/wifi and give 0644 permission, reboot and try your wifi again?
Download it here:

Fingerprint Reader is not working ok. What works is unlocking the screen but every app that tries to use fingerprint reader just crashes or in best case says it's unavailable. I think this is seriously bugged. I tried Keepass2Android (crash on setup), Evernote (reports unavailable at trying to unlock) and Fingerprint Test (Crash as well).
Can you please investigate and fix? This was working perfecnetly well on Nougat.
I might add that I use the deodexed version.
BTW as a side note, what is also not working is the ported “S energy planning“. When I click on it reports activity not found but that's negligable compared to broken fingerprint reader.
Apart from that I love the Rom (as usual) but please fix the darn fingerprint reader
First to the easy part: S energy planning is a csc feature and maybe not available for your region. You can install the app via apkmirror. Find it Please login to see this link.
Now to the fingerprint reader part. I have tested every feature before releasing the rom and it seemed to work fine at my end. I don't own the S8/S8+ anymore so you need to get me some logs in order to help you here.
Do all these app you mention include fingerprint scanner implementations?
OK - here it is.
Samsung S8 SM-G950F
Batman rom SM-G95XF V2.0.0 0 Final.zip
Install with default,
default, but keep twrp, modem bootloader, stock animation, stock splash,
Rebooted, finalized install, tried wifi, enabled developer mod, took the logs.
Hope this helps.
I would welcome if I made a silly mistake, so this can be documented and other might not run into the same issue.
Linux version 4.4.79-g58cd2e6 (jenkins@0fd045ccc84f) (gcc version 4.9 20150123 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Dec 9 08:12:28 UTC 2017
Just to be sure can you give me the output of:
CSC is DBT - Germany, unbranded.
The RenovateIce also offers a MCC setting - in addition - which is set to zero - unknown.
I haven't heard about MCC yet that's why I ask you what it stands for or what it is
Might be this one is better. This is an ongoing log, started while system is up, just set WIFI to on, and wait some time.
"failed to power up wifi chip, retry again" sounds like a good reason WIFI isn't working.
But why does it not power up the chip?
It fails because the txt_murata_r033_b0 does not exist. Please tell me the output of the above code and a screenshot of your kernel version
I tried re-stocking it and renovate-ice. Both are still working.
I tried also the stock rom provided in the BatMan installer. Does not work still.
Any idea still?
I have no problem to do more testing. If I should install a specific BL or CP, please just point to them and I will try.
Just curious how BL effects CP, are they somewhat connected? Is there a place where I can get the latest versions? Or does it need to be a specific version, fitting the to be installed ROM?
You can get me some logs. How to get them? There are very good guides on xda
Bootloader and modem aren't that much related to the wifi. Modem is for the mobile signal. Instead of using random versions use the ones that match the rom version (CRC7).
Anyway the most useful things are the logs now
