You would need to flash the Stock Official Pie from here but with the non-Home CSC which will do a factory reset wiping all info on the phone.

Yes, but I recommend doing the OTA updating in the phone...
Just use SamFirm application which you can find from XDA to download the firmware at max speed. SM-G950F as the model and Sales region CSC code is DBT. Should be able to find it still unless they pulled out that firmware. Wait a week for OEM unlock to appear.
Well it usually happens because OEM unlock wasn't enabled in developer settings before flashing any custom files on the phone via ODIN. (the dev settings option is hidden until you press on build number 7 times under software version)
If the phone was rooted you'll most likely have to do a...
update.zip is required for users that are running Pie firmware I think.
Odin is the best and most reliable way. Flashing this firmware through odin means you would have to wait for new german firmware to release. Or you can wait for firmware in your region to release to flash over german firmware.
Clean install you either use the non-home CSC or factory reset in recovery / settings after flashing.
Will work fine on dual sim phone. F and FD model use pretty much same firmware (just don't use FD firmware on a F phone though because that's just silly).
Is it okay for me to flash it when I have a different CSC? I assume I can flash the Pie firmware later if it comes out for my CSC if I do anyway.
With this firmware it's possible to downgrade back to 8.0 with latest 8.0 firmware (not sure if reset is needed though).
Take note of AP SW REV binary bit which is shown in the download mode screen with the text on the top left.
That needs to match number in firmware.
Bolded number is binary bit. Either match that number or have firmware higher than that number. Then it'll flash no problem.

Don't use the re-partition potion and avoid using PIT as those are not the cause of the phone being bricked. Which firmware are you using and what is the Sales (Region / CSC code) being displayed on download mode? Plus what is the AP SW REV...
How long does it take for first boot on this ROM? I did a factory reset to format the partitions so that they are readable and empty then flashed ROM and GAPPs then rebooted. Do I need to wipe / format the system partition manually? Just getting the lineage OS boot loading logo animated bar.
For the 'temperature warning and wont charge' is this a battery temperature too low or too high message?
Too low indicates a fault coming from the charging daughter board that plugs into the bottom left of the logic board.
Too high may indicate the battery going faulty or damage on the...
For flashing 7.0 Nougat you use Odin v3.10 or newer, for Oreo you use v3.13 or newer (Older wont work for oreo as the flashing tool does not flash or recognise oreo firmware properly).
Another thing to note is that most of the time you will not be able to flash firmware that is older than what...
Thanks for the heads up, I'm currently rebanded to C432 Nougat for both my P9's. Will keep that in mind.
Edit: This may be a silly question but after doing the unofficial update thing, is the enable OEM unlock greyed out and permanently enabled when the bootloader is unlocked? The reason I ask...
Going to try this out later, I had the bootloader unlock codes saved from when I got them from the Huawei bootloader request website, hopefully I did not delete it. Luckily I have a DC-Unlocker dongle so it shouldn't cost me to get the bootloader codes.
I'm guessing global OREO for these older...
Yeah I wouldn't flash or modify the bootloader on these phones. To unbrick from 9008 it requires a full image dump of a NAND (memory) chip from a identical phone and would need to be reprogrammed using a JTAG box so your pretty much SOL (There would be easier methods if there was better support...
I ended up just setting animation / duration scales to off In developer options under the drawing section. It may take a while to get used to it as you won't see any animations with it off.
It'll use less battery and feel more quicker. 0.5x is probably the sweet spot for fast animations.
Home_CSC does not tell the phone to do a factory reset while the non-Home CSC will do so.
For AOD and USB Debugging they will stay on. Enable OEM unlock will be probably set to disable because the option is hidden when you update to OREO for a week, then after a week you'll see the option and...
I probably wrote that wrong I meant that if you are using a stock kernel and you just flashed custom recovery and are planning to flash a custom kernel the phone isn't going to boot without wiping the data partition due to it being encrypted / dm-verity.
Correct me if I'm wrong as I would hope...
You're posting in the wrong section, post in the S7 edge section next time. To answer your question, what I have been using is the TGP Kernel. Calibration? Eh, never seen any noticeable changes when calibrating batteries.
Did you do a factory reset or format the /data partition through TWRP recovery? That is required when installing a custom kernel. If you need to keep data on the phone you could try reflashing stock samsung rom back onto the phone and see if it boots.
You need to download the latest Samsung Stock Rom firmware from sites such as sammobile or updato. You can use Samfirm alternatively instead.
Make sure it has the same region as the phone you are using. CSC code which you can find in the recovery mode menu at the bottom of the screen. It...
Have you made sure FRP lock is disabled by ensuring enable OEM unlock is enabled in developer options in the phone settings? That will block flashing custom binaries (files) to the phone via ODIN download mode.
Steps below require factory resetting your phone so backup your data if you need to...
Did you try flashing the latest 7.0 firmware you can find? Too old ones will not work as the phone will reject it.
Note that SM-G935F and FD firmware are pretty much the same, so if you are intending to flash always flash SM-G935F firmware and not FD for better firmware options.
OEM unlock option is either greyed out or hidden when you flash a Samsung Oreo stock (somewhat like stock) 8.0 firmware or update the phone to 8.0 for about a week. Once it's past that the option will appear.
Edit: Make sure you flash latest bootloader and modem specified by OP or else cellular...
