You cannot use magisk. The rooted rom in post 2 is about your only option for root. Safestrap says disabled because rom slots don’t work on newer devices so safestrap just works as a recovery only not a dual boot system

Thanks for your response...

I guess there's no way right now to root the device with magisk then is there? I haven't found a solution on the forums yet..

Just realized I was talking on the wrong thread the whole time...

Finally got everything installed, it booted to Nougat but to make sure it was persistent, I rebooted my phone; it immediately crashed to "[Upload Mode] Unknown Error"

But, I just kept rebooting it and turning it off and it eventually goes back into Android. Tested even further and it's about a 1 in 20 chance of a successful bootup.

The only remaining problem is that it can not turn Wi-Fi on, at all. The toggle will freeze at connecting for 5 minutes then turn itself off. No sim in this device so mobile is out.
Launch delay on apps is about 20 seconds, and apps requiring root crash or stall (like they can't get root, flashfire was one of them).

No mirror found (Rooted_G950USQS2BRB1.rar)

Rooted Nougat Rom​
This is last nougat rom made for S8 it is prerooted with flashfire and safestrap preinstalled. It has CSC stuff for all carriers added. Its debloated slightly with knox removed. Some stuff may not work but im not sure as I cannot test but this stuff may include fingerprint and or face recognition. If stuff doesnt work it probably related to using pie modems and non-hlos on a nougat rom which you have no choice.​
Thanks for all your work! FYI I can't download the file Rooted_G950USQS2BRB1.rar I get an error "OOPS! no mirrors found." whenever I click the "Click Here to Start Download Button" at the following link: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261751716 (Rooted_G95*USQS3BRB1.rar).

    Well its been a fun ride for the 8 series but from here on out I do not support or encourage rootIng this device. A good number of devices have become hard bricked from simply flashing the combo firmware. I don't know why this happens to only some phones possible a past OTA corrupted a partition on the phones or something. Whatever the reason I have decided to pull the method and will no longer support it. Please don't ask for files or help I will provide neither. I will leave rooted and non rooted safestrap roms up for those that still have a rooted 8 series.

    Directions
    Safestrap Method
    If you didnt upgrade to V8 bootloaders using odin. I recommend flashing full stock firmware with V8 bootloaders even if you are already on V8 bootloader via OTA update. I feel that maybe something in the OTA from V7 bootloaders to V8 may have corrupted a bootloader file and some people have experienced bricks with trying to update to V8 bootloaders from V7 using the below method so I recommend flashing full stock V8 firmware in Odin before trying this method and just understand there has been a risk of bricking device. Full stock can be found on Sammobile or updato or any other service you can find it. You will have to reroot of course. If you Updated to V8 bootloaders using odin method already then no need to do so again


    1. Extract system.img from the system_s8_brb1.7z and copy to phone also copy either SuperSu_System.zip or Magisk_System-v20.4.zip reboot to safestarp and flash system image
    2. Flash either SuperSu_System.zip or Magisk_System-v20.4.zip
    3. Reboot to download and flash BL_G950_NOUGAT_V7.tar.md5 in odin
    4. If you get constant rebooting to safestrap flash Nougat safestrap zip while in safestrap
