BREAKING: Galaxy Tab S3 Android 8.0 Official

When Flashing Firmware You MUST use ODIN v3.13.1 for all OREO Firmware, so from now on.

ARA2 :
OREO MEGA Link :
ODIN v3.13.1
ODIN v3.12.7

*edit*

If you are on a Custom Build or Custom Firmware, You might want to go back to stock, before flashing this. I did the following if you are ROOTed with SU/Magisk:
-Flash Ashyx latest TWRP
-Wipe ALL in TWRP, YES to confirm
-Go into Reboot Menu and POWER OFF (You will get a Warning that there is NO OS. Doesnt Matter cause you turning tablet OFF
-Boot in ODIN Mode, open up ODIN 3.12.7 and Flash ARA2 Firmware.
-When complete, Open ODIN v3.13.1 I provided above (V3.13.1 is For ALL SAMSUNG OREO builds now)
-Extract the Oreo firmware package, Reboot into ODIN Flashing Mode, Flash BL, AP, and H0ME_CSC.
-Sit back, relax, it should boot when ODIN is done....

*edit*

Theae are BOTH UK Builds and it doesnt matter, the whole world gets almost the same Build and they get them at different times. I didnt even have to set the time to regular and it was easily able to locate. Wifi works on BOTH sides of the Pond Guys, FYI.....


Thanks to @mariomsg1 for SM-T825 firmware package : Drive link(T825 LTE version):https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-tz...ew?usp=sharing

ROOT for Oreo current instructions, grab files from TWRP by @ashyx and search for Magisk Beta

1) Flash ashyx TWRP
2) TWRP Back up
3) wipe ALL -> YES
4) Reboot Recovery
5)Restore Back Up
6) flash Magisk Beta v16.4
7) Flash Devirty file
8) Reboot will take a while but she's all good::cowboy:

    I own a SM-T825 and updated to Oreo and after some trials and boot loops this is how I got Root and so far everything is OK.
    Backup all your personal folders to a MicroSD card or to your PC because all the Internal Card will be erased.
    Put in the External Card Magisk 16.4 , no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip and SM-T825 forced encryption disabler and patched boot - Thanks to ashyx.zip

    Magisk 16.4 - https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/download/v16.4/Magisk-v16.4.zip
    no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip - https://drive.google.com/file/d/19TDH7HLyv_NumDRjxNEcep0WVfvuVgPz/view?usp=sharing
    SM-T825 forced encryption disabler and patched boot - https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=962339331458994779
    Flash with Odin 3.13.1 schwabe93 TWRP 3.2.1-0: (for T825) (I used 7zip to archive to .TAR)
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ts6oFj0BXrZr6bpMbrA1IRY9azAwxONJ/view?usp=sharing

    Boot in TWRP and use the backup option (only system) to the external card (very important)
    Flash - SM-T825_forced_encryption_disabler_and_patched_boot.zip and after go to WIPE and Format DATA ( all internal storage will be erased)
    Reboot in TWRP and restore backup from External Card
    Flash Magisk 16.4 and after no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx.zip
    Reboot to system (It will take a while, be patience)

    OTA download is now working in the US....

    Here's the info

    The only thing that causes a full wipe with Odin is flashing the CSC file instead of the HOME_CSC file.

    Anyway, root on Oreo is too hit or miss for my liking at the moment, so I'll hold off until a robust solution is found.
    It's irrelevant whether the data partition is wiped or not.
    If you flash the stock boot it WILL re-encrypt at first boot.(This can take a long while if the partition is full and can make it seem like the system is not booting)
    Which means the patch must be re-applied and data FORMATTED to remove encryption.
