Well boys and girls. I'm gone. I upgraded to a Latin America s9+ so no more bull. For a while at least.

I'm no finance guy. actually, a national registered financial advisor. a crate of those Latin S9+ would be a great business venture. shelf life is years wit unlock BL. are they snapdragon or Exynos? congrats!

I've been lucky so far with your roms. Thanks again. I have both S8 and S8 Plus. Now the new V7 950u is one file. Is it flashed where is Odin modified Raymond? That would mean that the entire system now goes to V7? Where do I get the entry exit safestrap files. This is where I kind of get a little lost Screenshot_20200307-135955_DevCheck.jpg

Hey! Thanks for everything, but I was wondering if anyone could help me troubleshoot? I want to start off by saying that my phone is the G950USQS7DTA6 build, and there's an obvious mismatch there. So I want to start off by asking if getting combination firmware that matches is a must? I found userdata on androidfilehost found a link on this somewhat sketchy looking site called combinefile so far. (both files can be found just by searching G950USQS7DTA6 on the respective sites) Any help would be appreciated, thanks a lot in advance.

Combination firmware just needs to match bootloader version. So use combination firmware with bootloader v7 since yours is on v7. Theres usually only one version of the combo firmware per bootloader version.

This thread has run its course and is discontinued as a new safer root method has been found and posted in the OP with link to new thread. I will no longer answer questions in this thread and will eventually close this thread

    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
    1. Extract system.img from the Rooted_G95*USQS3BRB1.rar and copy to phone reboot to safestarp and flash system image reboot to download and flash BL_G950_NOUGAT_V7.tar.md5 in odin

    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

    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
