7.0 Firmware: samsung-firmware org/download/Galaxy__S8__Active__/35j7/XAS/G892USQU1AQJ8/G892UOYN1AQJ8/
I thought that the bootloader version might not be low enough for that, so I got another firmware version in Oreo from an XDA thread. I've included pictures of the phone download screen and Odin error codes.

I tried flashing that, but I got the same result. I started researching, and tried many solutions. I tried flashing without BL, with and without different options, different cables, different USB ports, etc... I read that I needed to enable OEM Unlocking, but the setting was missing. I read that a missing OEM Unlock option has something to do with Knox Guard and I have to wait 7 days without turning the phone off and have a sim card inserted. The only problem is that I don't have a sim tray. One is coming in the mail in less than a week and I haven't been able the SIM tray yet, so for all I know, it cant read sim cards ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . I know for a fact that Knox is not tripped because all of the Samsung apps still work.
Does anyone have an ideas or solutions to this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated. I am truly lost.
