Support for a modular framework Project Treble allows you to run on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ pure version of Android 8.0 Oreo, made sure the developers from the site XDA. Enthusiasts managed to port OS open source project (AOSP) for the flagship smartphone of the Korean manufacturer, providing relatively stable performance.
According to the developer with the nickname iamnotkurtcobain, AOSP version of Android Oreo, installed on Galaxy S9, allows the majority of the regular features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, fingerprint scanner, camera, LTE, and others. This is a significant breakthrough compared to AOSP adapted earlier for last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Some features of the Galaxy S9 and S9+, for example, the scanner iris will not work on AOSP due to the lack of native support. However, say the developers, as soon as a compatible version of Android, and it, according to the confirmed information, will be Android P, they will undertake adaptation functions.
Another limitation preventing the installation of AOSP, which is also referred to by developers is mandatory to unlock boot loader. At the moment this is only possible on models with the Exynos chipset. The version based on Snapdragon 845, despite the support of the Project Treble, prevent unlocking.
