i am not responsible if anything goes wrong. You are still the one who tryed to flash the files. Even tough this should work as it worked for me and some friends.
This is my first post (sorry if one already exists)
Today i am going to tell you how to root the Galaxy S9 International on android 9 Pie on stock touchwiz rom.
First of all download all these files;
Prince comsy odin: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...-13-1-t3762572
Team win recovery https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...xynos-t3763464
ElementalX Kernel https://elementalx.org/devices/samsung-galaxy-s9/
No verity encrypt: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=962187416754474353
Magisk 18.0 https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...mless-t3473445
Now for the root
First you need to unlock OEM, you can do this in developer options,
If there is no developer options you need to enable this
you can do this in: Settings>About Phone > software information > click 5 times on build number.
When you unlock OEM everything on your phone gets wiped so make a backup!!
When the wiping is complete, turn off your phone and go to download mode (Vol down + Bixby + Power)
Then connect the phone to your pc and start odin
In odin go to options, and disable f.reset and auto reboot.
Then press the AP button and select the TWRP image you downloaded.
When TWRP is flashed, force reboot your phone (Vol down+ Power) when it is powered off quickly press Vol Up + Bixby + Power to get into recovery
Swipe to allow modifications. And format /data
Then reboot into recovery.
When rebooted mount USB Storage and connect the phone to the PC
Then you can click&Drag the other files (elemental, Magisk, No verity)
When the files are on the phone, go to install and search for the files you just put on the phone.
Install in this order:
Then flash the custom kernel (ElementalX)
And as last flash Magisk.
When you did this, you want to Factory reset, Wipe cache and Dalvik.
Then you can reboot the phone, and install it.
(It is possible that you stay at the boot logo for a long time (Not the galaxy s9 one but the next one) What you need to do then is let it boot for 5 minutes, then force reboot (vol down+Power) and then the phone boots fine)
Again, just to make sure check if OEM is still unlocked (sometimes this get locked again)
Please note that when you do this, you lose secure folder and other functions, also is the knox tripped (0x1)
But the Fingerprint, Irisscanner and samsung account works.
SOMETIMES IT IS NEEDED TO INSTALL THE MAGISK MANAGER MANUALLY, YOU CAN JUST DOWNLOAD THE FILE FROM THE LINK IN THIS POST
Hope this helps.
If you do have any questions, please do the following first;
Note any errors that odin or your phone gives you. I want to help you, but i do need to know what is going wrong.
