Hey everyone I'm looking to unlock my phone. The goal is unlock, twrp (or alt), Detoxed Rom w/ Root Magsik. The phone is from Telus and Telus SIM it's Canadian variant. Model # SM-G960W.

Links: Unlock Bootloader? , TWRP , Detoxed Rom

TWRP says it doesn't support W version, or is there away around this? Thanks

Unfortunately the only version of TWRP supported Snapdragon version of S9 is only for 9600. And I don't think that it will work for 960W

One more if your real goal is to unlock Canadian version of S9 you should know that in Canada all phones should be sold unlocked since December 2017 (you should be able to use any SIM card} . But if your goal is to root the phone (for example to remove all Samsung bloatware) there's no way to do this for now

If it have the ability for the BL to be unlocked then someone will probably make one for it.

Bump, Yes I'm wondering how to get the OEM unlock option inside my phone developer options, it seems to be missing and I do not want to wait 7 days uptime for it to come back. The sm-g960w is running with a snapdragon chip and I'm looking for a tutorial how to flash custom roms on this device, any help much appreciated.
