A simple guide for users which will help them to install TWRP on their S8 after Oreo Update.

This guide is only for Exynos models.

Requirement -
1. PC/Laptop
2. Original Samsung USB Type-C Cable
3. Prince Comsy Odin (Because some users reported on this thread that normal Odin doesn't work)

Instructions -
1. Backup your important data from internal storage before proceeding towards the installation.
2. Now go to Settings - About Phone - Software Information - Tap On Build Number 7 Times.
3. Now come back to Settings Home and Open Developer Options. Check OEM Unlock is turned ON.
4. Power off device and boot into download mode.
5. Connect your device to the PC/Laptop.
6. Now Open Prince Comsy Odin and click on the AP option.
7. Choose the TWRP .tar file and press the START button.
8. Now after Odin says PASS, press the VOLUME UP, BIXBY KEY, and POWER BUTTON at the same time until device boots into TWRP recovery.
9. Now allow the modifications and go to WIPE option.
10. Choose FORMAT DATA - Type yes - ENTER.
11. Just Reboot Once Into Recovery Once.
12. Now Choose INSTALL option and install Magisk or SuperSU.
13. Done!

I didn't think this method was for Snapdragon w/o a different os/engineer software?
Snapdragon rooting is really this straight forward?

You'll need to FORMAT DATA to remove encryption and then flash magisk or supersu

Be sure to "FORMAT" data, not WIPE Data. WHen you choose the option to FORMAT Data in TWRP you will have to type in the word YES to confirm that you want to do that after making youir selction. Once the wipe is finished, flash the No Verity Scrtipt file you can find here: https://build.nethunter.com/android-...y-opt-encrypt/and then reboot.

BEFORE YOU REBOOT after flashing TWRP - If you have been "in jail" after flashing oreo and you had to wait to wait 7 days before you could flash TWRP - be sure to flash the RMM State Fix found here immediately after flashing TWRP - https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...5&postcount=22

and you flashed the no-verity script file? Sorry, I don't mean to be redundant - but others I have talked to had similar problems until they did that.
