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. Flash no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip.
12. Now Choose INSTALL option and install Magisk or SuperSU.
13. Done!

Flash this official firmware through Odin if you have Exynos S8, and you'll get OEM unlock option.

I also manually updated to Oreo through this firmware and not through OTA. Also, note that flashing this will not wipe any of your existing data and also will not trip your knox

Does the Oreo update affect the the locked bootloader on the Snapdragon version? I thought it was impossible to install TWRP on the Snapdragon versions of the S8?

Try use AQK7 ( 4 file firmware + re-partition PIT)

In my case I 100% success returned form CRAP to AQK7.
OEM unlock is in dev settings, no RMM and FRP.

Powodzenia ^_^

I'm guessing this is not for the US snapdragon variant.

There's no way this can work on US Snapdragon, we don't have a OEM unlock option here.

Tired of the US locked bootloaders.
Next time I'll get a Exynos GS9 for sure.
