    [DISCONTINUED][ROM][MOD] S8+_U1_Unbranded_Rom_PlayStore_Addon_Mods_ADB & Odin_Install

    The PlayStore Nougat Mods Zip Or The S8 Nougat Mods Zip Can Be Used On Any Carrier
    This involves some knowledge of using odin and adb if you do not how to use these please read up before attempting this as this thread is not going to be a how to use odin/adb thread​

    How I Achieved This If You Want The Technical Stuff
    I found that Older CSC zips pulled from the cache.img of the S7 model phone will install using adb sideload.
    I dont flash a S8 CSC file in odin because this contains the carrier stuff
    I have to flash 2 different csc files from the S7. The first one flashes the correct stuff to blacklist unwanted other carrier Apps and install vital verizon apps. But the first csc zip blocks samsung cloud so by flashing the second csc zip which is from S7 MM firmware Samsung cloud was not blocked then. Finally the 3_Install.bat zip removes unwanted carrier files that cause problems with verizon VoLTE.

    This Will Wipe Your Phone!

    In Odin In Options Tab Uncheck Auto Reboot
    Click Flash

    Its a start my friends!
    I will update soon
    Does anyone know how to revert back to the stock Verizon ROM if I choose to go back?

    Download the Latest VZW Firmware
    and flash it with Odin3_v3.12.7 from the OP
    Mine hung at checking network settings so I reflashed everything and it worked again.
    Is there a more pico approach that only has the google play store framework and nothing else google (i.e. chrome, drive, etc.)
    Download package disabler and disable What you don't want. There is no way to permanently get rid of the stuff without root. All my install is doing is disabling stuff. It's all still there.
