So, there is a LOT of fuss going on with Oreo Beta.

We all want the latest version of Android and it;s not easy, as Samsung definitely step-ed up their game this year.

We won't have any Odin flashable ZIP combo this year, and it gets really frustrating trying to get into the beta nowadays.

//===============

This is where this thing comes in :

First of all, the version you are on DOES NOT MATTER.

Secondly, you need TWRP in a working state.

Thirdly, BACKUP EFS. I am not responsible if anything goes wrong. This works on my device, but I cannot be responsible if ANYTHING GOES WRONG.

If you cannot mount /data, format your data from TWRP, but backup everything before.

The following steps are to be used using internal data, even if it probably does not matter, let's keep it simple shall we.

These steps will format your INTERNAL STORAGE. BACKUP ALL YOUR PICTURES ETC ETC.

Also Mount points seems to be different in Oreo, so TWRP is not able to mount /data at all.

Once TWRP has formated data, choose reboot, and reboot to recovery.
From there, once TWRP has rebooted, proceed to make a short and simple backup, for boot.img for exemple.
This step ensures you have correct folder structure and all.

Plug your phone to your computer, and browse through it.
Go to TWRP/Backups/somerandomnumbersandletters/
Paste the extracted folder that I provided in the .rar

Go back to main TWRP menu, choose restore
Restore the boot and system from there.

Wait for it to be done, and reboot.
This has DM Verity off, and will boot for sure. The boot literally takes ages. On the first try I almost gave up before I've seen the LED turning off and system starting.

And it also has Knox turned off.

It is a dirty method, but it does work, and with this you can have Oreo as a daily driver.

Oh, and there is no root. I've heard SuperSU works flawlessly, but did not try as I am fine without it.

Enjoy.

Ok, Beta 2 is here : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1F62EQ4Vdj6yAvL8uGRYOSFLQMrWbVeH9

Please note that if you want a flash-able version, you can find it here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...1-10-flashable-oreo-twrp-dump-beta-2-t3703083

A little bit of change for the installation, sorry about that :

Restore TWRP backup,

Flash https://build.nethunter.com/android-tools/no-verity-opt-encrypt/no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip

I forgot to change the build.prop before making the backup, so this will boot but will reboot randomly.

To fix that, flash https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L0y7PXRaucMbW7Oe5yIAkGeF9t0zrETD

Enjoy

am confused !!!! your knox is triped and y get update ota work with tripped knox ! someone confirm
I got beta with tripped Knox. Having tripped Knox doesn't stop you from getting updates, if you have root that stops you from getting updates
