All work belongs to @jesec - original thread here

All i have done is repacked with the required files for the G950.

@Jesec original OP is below.




Thread under construction.
Team Win Recovery Project 3.1.0-r1


Confirmed working on Korean and International variant. Should also work on other Exynos variants.
NOTE: YOU MUST ENABLE "OEM UNLOCK" (located in Developers options) BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

As kernel source is not released, some features such as MTP are not available for now.

#include <std_disclaimer.h>

Download: (Flash via Odin)
dreamlteks (Korean version - SM-G950N) (compatiable with International version - SM-G950F/FD):

HOW-TO ROOT AND/OR DISABLE ENCRYPTION/DM-CRYPT:
I noticed that it could be really difficult to operate when /data partition is encrypted (can't view your internal storage from TWRP) and MTP/ADB is unavailable (can't transfer files from computer to phone).
So I included 2 flashable zips in recovery image itself.
They are located in /twres/flashables/.

To disable encryption/dm-crypt, just simply flash "no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip". It will disable dm-crypt and make /data encryption optional. Then you can go to Wipe menu to wipe your /data partition to finally disable encryption.

To root, just simply flash "Magisk-v12.0-arm64.zip". It will install Magisk on your phone.

As mentioned in the S8+ thread, I'm using the G950F and can get into TWRP fine. But once there, the touch-screen doesn't respond.

Just tried it and it still doesn't work, unfortunately.

Just noticed, they both point to the exact same file despite the urls being different

Thank you for your quick work.

I can't flash anything because my phone can't mount /data in recovery. I don't know why tried various methodes

EDIT: a full wipe made the job, working perfectly! Thank you

So how do you get into Download mode or Recovery mode in the S8 with no hard home button? Haven't seen that definitively answered anywhere.

This is why I regret getting the snapdragon variant. I'll make sure to get the exynos note 8 when released

Anyone tried Android Pay with Magisk to confirm it works?

Aside from that awesome work!

@mwilky I made a detailed tutorial on how to install TWRP and ROOT the Galaxy S8 on YouTube. It would be great if you could put it in the first post so people can easily see how to flash and root their device. Thanks a lot for your implication, I got my device 5 days ago and now it's completely ROOTED. Long live XDA Developers!
