I think this thread is needed. I am an HK snapdragon S10 owner and really want root, I tried the method that is available which some claim is only for Exynos but no official word of it that I found but after flashing patched firmware, phone wouldn't go into recovery. Unless I did something wrong it doesn't work for Snap. Flash back OG firmware.

REGARDLESS, this thread I feel is needed to discuss this and methods, etc etc etc. This is mainly for HK Snaps but U.S Snaps can join this thread too but doubt there will be anything for it.

Hmm, I thought of trying on mine too, but I don't have time to do it until May. Good to know you didn't brick your phone. I'll give it a shot when I have time too just in case.

Did anyone else try it?

Yeah, I read he got to Odin stalling at verifying his patched file or something. Doesn't mean it doesn't work tho. I want to try for myself when I have time, unless more people try and they all say it doesn't work. Also, maybe we could try with Heimdall on Linux.

Yea I think he did but for me it flashed my file fine, just the next step I couldn't get to work, booting to recovery.

Based on the documentation, I think that pressing the buttons right for booting sounds a bit finicky. Even for accessing download mode on my phone when I unlocked it, the button combination wouldn't work right away. Same for standard recovery, I had to use adb to boot to recovery for the first time, then after that only did doing it via the buttons worked. I'm wondering if it could be something like that that was the problem for you. Like, I wouldn't necessarily assume it doesn't work at the moment, even though I doubt it works with the SD variants. I think it deserves more tries from more people.

I agree, it could just be fails on my part, I may try again but once I flashed back to OG it had to wipe my data and don't want that to happen again unless I know root will work. I wish topjohnwu would state if it works on snap. So many people asked him on twitter but no answer.

Yeah, I asked him too. And it's why I'm waiting for next month before trying it myself. I don't have time to go through the process right now, but I'm down to try it a couple times in a row once I have time.

I guess I'll join this thread too. Haven't tried the root method but don't want to risk unless I know for a fact it works in HK.

I'm waiting to buy s10e snap for this reason. No root, no buy..
I choose Android because of its freedom vs Apple system. I want to do anything with MY phone.
Root should always be allowed, and each user then takes the conscious risk!

I prefer a waiting Lounge versus the waiting room! Since we will be here awhile...
