What makes this userdebug version so special? With it being AT&T, would most of its contents still work with my telus version?

It's not really all that special given the age as it's a very early 7.1 release. Generally the idea is native SU binary, verity control, & unlock capability.. This debug image is not AT&T though, it's USC that appears to be a generic US Carrier image.

I believe any carrier firmware will work since the modem implementation is probably about the same aside from branding. A Telus image will likely include Telus apps that may be desirable if you have Telus service. Or in other words it should work but you likely have a better experience currently.

userdebug firmware for Xp8

Userdebug is really the right way to achieve root .

Magisk is cool depending on the case however I would personally rather keep su isolated to adb root. I managed to compile a partially working gsi-pie userdebug image however I couldn't manage to get the radio working so I abandoned that effort. This image of yours may just help to solve many things!!

I would also appreciate a userdebug firmware build for Xp8. Please share it if you can.

@eleotk, thanks! When I try to download it from mega.nz, it ask for a decryption key (screenshot attached)...
Do you know what is it?

Thanks,

Thanks again! Is it a userdebug build or just a regular build for AT&T?

@eleotk,
Thanks, however I'm looking for the userdebug build (for AT&T carrier or any other GSM carriers in North America region).
If you can share it, it would be much appreciated!

Since userdebug XP8 firmware build is out in the wild and floating around, I would appreciate if anyone can share it with me. @smokeyou, I assume you have it already (hint, hint)?
