USA T-Mobile EFS-CSC DETONATOR v2.2 INT TEKHD

Before flashing, please read OP, OP2 & OP3...





- OS: Oreo Version

- Details: This will transform your International Note 8 F/FD, S8/S8+ F/FD or S9/S9+ F / F/DS into a fully operational T-Mobile Device. Exactly as the U-Variant. VoLTE, Wifi-Calling, Enhanced Messaging, Video Calling and ALL T-Mobile 4G/LTE/ONLINE services & features fully operational! OREO Version!

Requirements: Oreo & International ROM that contains: (see image below)

system/app/ImsSettings.apk (Package Name: com.samsung.advp.imssettings)



(Some international roms don't even have IMS Settings apk, so the Detonator will not work on those roms)


- THIS IS NOT FOR THE KOREAN N VARIANT!!! IF YOU HAVE A SM-N950N / SM-G955N or SM-G965N, IT WILL NOT WORK AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTORE PARTITIONS!

- How: Backup all partitions via TWRP;... Download and flash via TWRP.

- BACKUP ALL PARTITIONS BEFORE FLASHING! THIS IS NOT A STANDARD/REGULAR FLASHABLE ZIP! IF YOUR PHONE DOESN'T LIKE THE DETONATOR, (MAYBE A CARRIER/REGION LOCK) YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTORE PARTITIONS!

Common Questions - See Post #2

Changelog:

v2.2 - SmartManager > New features and fixes.

v2.1 - HD+ Calling added.

v2 - S9/S9+ & S9 Ports for S8 Fix

ENJOY!

Common Questions:

Junior Member: - Hey TEKHD! This is great! But I flashed the Detonator on my Korean N Variant and now my device is asking for SIM LOCK password?

TEKHD: - You did not follow instructions my young Padawan... This file does NOT work on Korean devices. You will need to restore your nandroid and/or reflash your stock firmware via ODIN.

Junior Member: - Hey TEKHD! What is a nandroid?

TEKHD: - My young Padawan... You will never be a Jedi...

Junior Member: - Hey TEKHD! Can you make a Detonator for AT&T users?

TEKHD: - I don't have AT&T, can't test the files. (plus AT&T doesn't like IMEI's from non AT&T phones)

Junior Member: - Hey TEKHD! Can you make a Detonator for Korean N devices?

TEKHD: - I don't have a Korean N device, sorry...can't test the files.

Try this: (see image below)



Using Root Explorer, navigate to /efs/imei/

Open in text editor:

and make sure both say TMB

Reboot & Reflash...




- When booting for the 1st time... turn off "Confirm Network Connection" Under Settings -> Connections... Done

Nice!
@TEKHD How do you get to the IMS settings on Oreo? With Nougat using Phone INFO/Shortcut Master it was possible but with Oreo on Note 8 the secret codes no longer pop up.

You need root in order to access IMS Settings under Oreo. With root, you will be able to access IMS settings via Shortcut Master.

This is not for N variant, please read OP. You will have to restore nandroid or reflash stock firmware via Odin for your Korean N device. Hope this helps.

Yes I'm rooted, don't know what it feels like to be stock.

Maybe it's a Note 8 Oreo issue. Shortcut Master or Phone INFO (has Shortcut Master built in) can't find all the usual secret service menu codes as it did on Nougat. App dev is aware of it too. Hopefully the apps will get updated to work. I take it the screenshot you posted of IMS Settings is not from a Note 8 on Oreo? But at least VoLTE & RCS services get enabled through CSCfeatures.
