tell this to those who bought anything international on ebay and had trouble returning

us warranty is a must. everything is made like **** these days. i end up returning 99% of things i buy, and that's not even electronics but anything. i never buy extended warranty for electronics because i don't waste money on anything warranty-worthy. partly for tax reason. other reason it'll likely fail anyway. my current phones cost $1.

Unless those tars are signed by Samsung and pass the secure boot/Odin security check. And we would have to flash everything, I'm guessing that includes the userdata too because if we just flash one part it and it has one piece to getting around one check, another part might be required to get through another check. I just doubt the **** would boot if we tried flashing it because it would fail the PBL sector.

I don't know honestly the only known ones are the ones posted with guides in the forum.

Also attached is me asking them to release the ENG firmware. For the keks Bois.

Even if they released it, it would not work on your device. To be able to run eng firmware (and consequently, be essentially oem unlocked on a us device), knox requires a special certificate be installed on the device, which is signed by the trust chain and tied directly to the DID# of the individual device. Only then can you boot eng firmware on any device s8 or later.

It took them over a decade to do it, but tthey seem to have finally covered all their bases and closed the remaining exploit vectors

Oh that just killed all my hope, if part cyborg says it can't be done I'm gonna believe him, after the magic he pulled off on the s8 I tend to think he knows exactly what he's talkin about lol

There's still a tiny bit of hope for anyone who has US Snapdragon device:

elliwigy has so far managed to get root on a Note9 combination firmware but the kernel panics as soon as he tries to remount partition or install su.
