So I'm having a hard time getting this done. Adb won't connect after I flash the first ap. Also ot gets stuck on a binary screen with a serial number after that and I have to force it into download mode and when I just flash the xac CSC I get stuck on another screen that said force upload. I can't get that ime screen

To answer my own question, and help others that may run into the same issue. It seems that when you go into the IMS options with Shortcut Creator and turn on all the switches, there's one item under RCS that should not be turned on called "OPTIONS". Once I deselected it, Google Messaging enabled RCS almost immediately.

Are you using the correct version to your latest bootloader? Are you using proper Odins for each method? Did you perform factory reset before flashing combo? Are you using USB3 or 2?

It says my last security patch version was August 2017.

The fingerprint issue on root is due to using the wrong root files...you can use the official SamFail Firmware or the updated Odin Files from my ROM thread...

Like boot animation, Volte support and LTE bands available.

Mine in SPR branded note 8 with sim unlocked
I request all LTE bands unlocked and Volte Support for use in India

They are the same unless Sprint has added a userdata file...if not the version is same...I think the main reason the branded versions are to keep servers balanced...while having the ability to add branded options....flashing N950U carrier CSC will enable VoLTE

Here is some information:

The problem is that you have flashed 3ARA3 bootloader and your system is still AQI5....at this point might as well root using SamFail V3 completely then try unlock again

You mention you have a verizon phone as well and I would like to see you can share the steps and files you used in order to be able to use the hotspot without the phone checking the subscription to turn the hotspot on.


I used the BQL2 unlocked files from the OP of this thread . I followed the instructions in post 4 of this thread. I can now use my hotspot without it checking for a subscription.

Yes but I think my mistake was flashing one at a time. And also having issues using adb

Yeah it is best to be flashed at once, to start...for and, ensure that it is mapped properly or start cmd in the adb folder with selecting run as administrator....you can also make sure to have the latest files installed (Google if need be)...I sometimes use power shell instead....
