Your device has an Exynos processor so the version ported for Snapdragon won't work on your device, if that is what you installed.

Read the thread linked below for installing the Exynos port, if you have any questions about the process or need help troubleshooting issues, ask your questions there, I'm pretty sure the members there can help.

Um that's not good. How can you tell? I'm in the US and ordered online through sprint, did they send me a exynos version? It was my understanding that the US all got snapdragons. Oh, and yes the version was for the snapdragon variant. Here's the link.

I looked up the specs on your specific model number, the specs show that the SM-G975U is a Exynos device, that is why I said that you have a Exynos device and needed to use the version ported for Exynos.

Your specific model number, your android version, kernel version and your build number are ALWAYS the keys to figuring out what can and can't be done and how. In this case, your model number says to use the Exynos version.

Well, you may be right, the Sprint version is showing a Snapdragon processor. Try installing the Aida64 app, it will tell you everything about your hardware.

Wnen you verify your version, just do a search for:

"Install gcam SM-G975U snapdragon XDA"

That should find the version that has been ported for your device here at XDA.

Oh thank God, I know it's not the biggest difference but the snapdragon is better then the exynos, and aida64 tells me I have a snapdragon version so does that mean I'm all good and don't have the global exynos? But I'll look up a gcam for my model, thanks man.

The snapdragon version seems to be what you need, I edited the suggested search terms above, maybe it will help narrow it down for you.

I do realise that it's there by default, but I'm curious what it actually blacklists. I guess this must be documented somewhere. I'm not overly concerned about it - just intrigued.

What is in the file, research its contents, that might answer your question.

Nah, I've just picked up a few things by reading and helping along the way. Helping others is the the hammer that has forged my blade, the others that I've learned from are that by which my blade has been quenched and the others that I've helped are the stone by which my blade has been whet. It is the various things that I've encountered along the way that has broadened my scope because it always brings me into new things to learn about.

I'm not always right about things, I just make sure to avoid making suggestions that will harm a device if I'm not sure. That way, if I'm wrong then I'm just wrong and I've learned something from it, no harm, no foul.

Another thing is, I don't just try to help by providing answers and links. I try to help in a manner that teaches. A manner that teaches how to effectively search for what someone might be looking for. This not only helps answer their question or solve their issue in that instance, it also might teach them in a manner that they might not need help the next time they need to find an answer.

How to unroot i9505 rooted by CF Auto Root script? Su Occupied.

How can I use audio mods like viper4android to apply audio effects to sounds coming from a game app? I've searched and read and researched for weeks but it's some kind of national secret I guess. People tell me they can use the equalizer from V4A to tune their in-game sounds but it has never worked for me. It works on youtube and podcasts and music players and just about any other audio source but when it comes to games somehow all attempts to alter the audio are ignored/bypassed. I've tried ainur sauron, ainur narsil, many versions of viper4android, jamesDSP, Dolby ports, and the audio compatibility patch. None have worked on game sounds, but they have worked on the in-game voice communication, so I can make my friends sound like they are in an echo chamber but that's not very useful. Is there anything I can change in the audio_effects/audio_policy/audio_lib_configs that would make this work? I'm on a Samsung S8 g950u rooted with jrkruse EDL method and a near stock, deodexed nougat ROM with Supersu and safestrap as I have a locked bootloader so no magisk modules for me. Thank you to anybody who would have some insight on this.

If you have SuperSU installed, open SuperSU and look in its app settings, you'll find an option to cleanup for unroot and uninstall, this option will remove root and remove the SuperSU app.

Or, you can flash your stock firmware via Odin and you will no longer be rooted.
