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
Rooted_G95*USQS3BRB1.rar
BL_G950_NOUGAT_V7.tar.7z
Includes Fingerprint and Face Unlock fix for above nougat rom. Just flash in BL slot in odin after everything else
Safestrap-4.10-B03-DREAMQLTE-PIE.zip Will boot straight to safestrap only for pie roms
Safestrap-4.10-B03-DREAMQLTE-NOUGAT.zip Will Give you the safestrap splash screen on boot

Directions
Safestrap Method

I followed you with s5. My hero
However, I am a little slow, could you or anyone explain what does this do exactly?



Its just what the description says. Once the bootloaders were updated on S8 it lost the ability to flash modified system images in odin. There for loosing ability to gain root or use safestrap recovery. This method will get that ability back

Hey I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly, this gives us root on V5 BL right? Only for nougat image I'm assuming but this also gives us safestrap to hop between Oreo and pie too? If that's what I just read, this is exciting news and major congrats to @jrkruse and a major thank you to him and everyone that helped!!! Your dedication to development with our S8 generation devices is GREATLY appreciated by the community!

    Now I got through into SafeStrap recovery. I would want to flash nougat image since I want to root it, but which nougat image should I flash? I have G950U.



    In therory the AP from partcyborgs room and the Rev 5 combo bootloader I believe.



    Thats right you could extract the system.img.ext4 from partcyborg rom rename it to system.img copy to phone and flash as image in safestrap. You are on combo bootloader already so the rom should boot. You might have to wipe data
