Hi, I just wanted to share what I just came across. I'm sure this will help getting root. I found a hybrid stock/samsung testing rom. Check it out, I'm sure it'll help us get root. https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1xQbX...xport=download

UPDATE: There is an option to OEM UNLOCK. It seems to have full adb control.

I'll take a look at it.. question is, where'd you get it and do they have a g965u version?

To add, looks like a regular combo firm, they have OEM unlock option in settings and adb debuggable and permissive

Im not sure if they have a 965u version. I found it while trying to find an engineer kernel.

Any idea what the security patch is? I'm on May with the version 2 bootloader so I dunno if I can flash this but if it's the newer bootloader I could do some tests.

So I reset my s9 and I get this when trying to flash the combination ROM.

Any suggestions or is this due to the bootloader being V2

I didn't get that error but I was on the April patch. That particular ROM was in the January patch I believe. I did use the modified ODIN by Raymonf.

My bad I meant the February patch (T-Mobile isn't sending any updates)

From initial look at it, it appears to be a standard combination firmware

Yeah I'm on the may update so I don't think I can flash it. Best of luck hopefully someone can find something useful with it. Anybody get it to respond to fastboot commands?
