Are you trying to flash this rom but you are stuck?
Here are the answers that most ask for in order to flash a ROM.
ODIN FAILED TO WRITE ERROR
Did you get this Failed To Write Message in Odin?
Odin Error Message:
<ID:0/003> FAIL! Model dismatch fail
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
○ Open Odin as Administrator?
○ Try the Prince Comsy version?
○ Enable Developer Settings?
-Open Settings > About Phone > Tap Build Number 7 Times
○ Enable OEM Unlock?
-Go Back to Settings > Tap Developer Options > Tap OEM Unlock
○ Enable USB Debugging?
-Tap Developer Options > Tap USB Debugging
Did you try every single thing but nothing works?
Well, did you right click "Odin" each time you go to open it and then click "open as administrator"?
Sometimes you have to try several different versions of Odin.
But I have found that Odin3 v3.12.7 was the one that would work when the others had not.
I always would forget to also open Odin as Administrator.
It's a pain in the neck to have to remember to open as admin every time.
But you usually have to do it.
Did you check that ADB had started? Maybe that might be the reason it won't work?
But I doubt it! But you just never know and I am just trying to help you get it flashed.
It's a very quick flash and you can see that the PDA load was very quick as well.
But as far as the errors, you just have to keep trying...
Which I mean, you sometimes have to open, close, reopen Odin when it doesn't work.
Sometimes that helps, sometimes it doesn't.
It's all about the right Odin version at the time
making sure the cord is good
Opening Odin as Admin
And keep trying again after restarting your phone by holding the download mode button sequence again.
Sometimes a fresh start will work, sometimes a restart of the PC will help
Basically, you just have to keep trying. I am on G935A too. I had the same issues, but I never gave up!
Keep trying, you'll get it!
Thanks for trying the rom guys! You are all awesome and helping me make the initial OP better with every question you ask, so thanks!
Several apps you see in these screenshots are not installed with this ROM
I am Just showing that Carrier Bloatware is minimal
I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THIS BUILD, I ONLY FOUND THE FILES, EDITED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE LATEST UNLOCKED VERSION WITH THE SMALLEST FILESIZE, THEN SHARED AND DOCUMENTED IT HERE IN THE S7 FORUMS AFTER TESTING ROM.
A THANKS IS APPRECIATED.
PS, USING THIS FIRMWARE WILL NOT MAGICALLY "UNLOCK YOUR PHONE" YOUR PHONE WILL STILL STAY LOCKED TO YOUR PHONE'S CARRIER AFTER FLASHING THIS FIRMWARE. THIS IS ONLY THE FACTORY UNLOCKED VERSION OF THIS ROM.
