    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.

    Post [S8/S8+] [DSBA] Stock Official Pie Odin Files/Update.zip

    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).

    Post [FIX] For those who get stuck on sboot.bin.lz4 when try to flash firmware S8 G950F

    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. e.g G955FXXU3CRGH Bolded number is binary bit. Either match that number or have firmware higher than that number. Then it'll flash no problem.

    Post S7 edge Oreo Update Performance

    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.
