On the download you provided, it said "for the Samsung Galaxy S8(SM-G950F), by Jesse Chan"
Will it work on the Galaxy s8 Unlocked (SM-G950U1)?

Quick question: with this kernel, will SafetyNet still not detect root (Provided we use Magisk)?

I followed your whole guide word for word twice and was able to odin the QF7 to allow the 1.0.6 official version of CROM to unlock my phone which Is a s8+ SM-G9550 6gb RAM/128gb model I bought off of amazon.
TWRP flashed no problem and I was able to hold vol up bixby and power to boot right into the TWRP. I then wiped data, rebooted recover,(skiped to part3), then flashed this kernel, then magisk 13.3.
Finally I click reboot system and my phone hangs on"Set warranty bit: Kernel"
Im going to Odin QE7 from scratch again and just try to install the TWRP and see if the phone will work without root and your kernel for now =(

As a follow up I am able to just flash the t dm-verity and force encryption disabler and boot the phone just fine.

So Either the kernel is not working with my s8+ SM-G9550 6gb RAM/128gb model or magisk 13.3

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
