Woah! I just looked at my phone and the charge level is 82%. I didn't modify anything to my knowledge for this to happen. Just put it on the charger. Let's see if it goes any higher.
It's not exact. Without any mods I've seen as high as 87 88 percent. It's was a real poor implementation on Sammy part.

EDIT!!! This was solved by using a different cable. Apparently it didn't matter for the first part of the process, but it did for ADB. RESOLVED!!!


I really appreciate this tutorial. I am unfortunately stuck at this point. advice?
4. Once phone is connected and recognized by computer locate the APPS_INSTALLER .bat in the S8_ROOT folder and run the bat. This will install some apps

I see this:
I n s t a l l i n g . . .
ECHO is off.
error: no devices/emulators found
Performing Push Install
adb: error: failed to get feature set: no devices/emulators found

Press any key to continue . . .

When I run adb devices I see no devices in the list at all. Here is what the phone looks like now. Does anyone have any advice at all?

Hi, I'm new to the world of rooting and hacking, and my s8 does not have the OEM unlocking, so I cannot root or flash. My question is that when I enter the download mode in the kg status part, I see checking? what meaning ??? I have to wait 7 days to enable the OEM and then to be able to root is that I lost several photos and music and I wanted to recover them but the program asks me to have the Samsung S8 rooted and I can not

Please someone help or advise me

No these devices have permanently ked bootloader. You found this thread which is how to root. If you root your phone will be wiped. The pictures are already gone. You need to have been rooted beforehamd

now im bricked AF right now i was on G955USQS8DTJ1-20201111083935 and NOT G950USQU8ATG1. FUDGE!!!!! i have held down every button combination possible ... the screen flickers and is just not reactive or show any sign of life. I guess i need to go the EDL jump or something now?

Anyone still follow this thread??


As a last resort, you could try to open the phone disconnect the battery cable, reconnect it and try again with the Vol- + Bixby + Power.
It has worked for me a couple of times.

You mean take off the back of the phone? I could but will the back stick back on? I have no glue or anything


You have to heat it with a heat gun set to 200F (alternatively with a hair dryer), then use a thin metal prying tool to nudge it off carefully, it's very fragile and can crack easily (in case it does, you get can get a replacement back online for a few bucks). Also be extremely careful not to rip he fingerprint cable. If it still doesn't enter download mode after disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and holding the buttons, you may have to charge it with an eternal batter charger, or temporarily attach a full charged battery. This issue can be caused by an empty battery, and since the phone's is fudged, it's unable to charge it till you reflash it.

I swiped right when asked to install TWRP. Am I screwed? If so than that's completely my fault for not following the instructions 100%. I was planning on getting a new phone anyway so it's not a huge issue.

Edit: I'm stupid. All I had to do was hold down the Power+Volume+Bixby button down for a little while. Now I'm to the point where after flashing BL_G950_NOUGAT_V8.tar.md5, my phone won't go to the homescreen. It just shows a screen the at says, "Safestrap Disabled."

Edit 2: All I didn't flash the system image file. After that everything worked fine.

    It's bad day to our device..but we have to deal with and move on ..thanks for your hard work bro we appreciate your all effort
    I just cannot in good faith leave stuff up that is bricking peoples devices. So this is for the best interest of the community I believe.

    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.

    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.


    Downloads
    system_s8_brb1.7z
    BL_G950U_NOUGAT_V8.tar.7z
    Includes Fingerprint and Face Unlock fix for above nougat rom. Just flash in BL slot in odin after everything else
    Magisk_System-v21_4.zip This is system magisk not the normal systemless magisk so magisk hide and modules will not work!
    SuperSU_System.zip
    Safestrap-4.12-T01-DREAMQLTE_PIE.zip Will boot straight to safestrap only for pie roms
    Safestrap-4.12-T01-DREAMQLTE_NOUGAT.zip Will Give you the safestrap splash screen on boot

    SM_955_Mods_Safestrap_NOUGAT.zip Will fix volte icon
    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
