The Note 9 is the latest flagship phone in the Samsung Galaxy series. It comes with latest Samsung Experience 9.5 based on the Android 8.1 Oreo firmware update from the manufacturer. This also features a bunch of new and updated apps, wallpapers, Note 9 Launcher and ringtones; which we have already posted about earlier. Here is the first Galaxy Note 9 ROM port for the Samsung S9 and S9 Plus devices.
So the Galaxy S9 (SM-G960F) and S9+ (SM-G965F) phones can be updated to Android 8.1 Oreo using the Note9’s full ports for apps, frameworks, priv-app and libraries, and much more. Thanks to the Nemesis ROM for S9, you get the full Permessive Kernel with Note 9 Ramdisk based on Flashkernel. The installer is an AROMA Installer; meaning you can choose which apps and features you want to install to your device’s system. The ROM is fully Debloated and full Odex.
With the S9 and S9 Plus getting the Android 8.1 Oreo port, you can expect similar ROM for the Galxy S8, S8 Plus, Note 8, and many other Samsung devices.

- Your Galaxy S9 or S9+ device needs to be rooted with latest TWRP recovery setup.
- Rooting and installing a custom ROM will trip Knox counter.
