Finally...I have successfully installed TWRP & MAGISK in my S7 Edge Exynos at first it was just boot looping for the reason that my DATA isn't wiped by twrp successfully so I switched off the mobile phone and rebooted on custom recovery and do the data wipe then installed Magisk then boot up to system im using stock Oreo firmware as I was not feeling good if I'll be successful. Good thing lady luck was with me :fingers-crossed: thanks again XDA !

Great, I'm happy you got it working OK.
Maybe now it's time to look at a Pie custom ROM based on Samsung One UI. :)

Hi All,

I'm trying to install stock rom on G935F with locked FRP, although every rom that i have downloaded and successfully installed are those with binary 6, and every of them are always ended up with again locked FRP so can't install TWRP.

Model is G935UZSAXAA, but in the Download mode says G935F

Please suggest any steps.

Thank you.

Has anyone found a solution to the clipboard issue? I have found that text can be copied to the clipboard directly (i.e. From an edit text) but when using "Copy to Clipboard" which many apps use, it's not working. No clipboard manager gets past this as it doesn't even hit the clipboard.

LOG:
System.err: at android.content.IClipboard$Stub$Proxy.setPrimaryClip(ClipboardManager.java: 181)
System.err: at android.content.IClipboardManager.setPrimaryClip(ClipboardManager.java: 155)

Hello, my SSG S7 Edge is Korean varient (SM-935K) and this method used to work. However I recently wanted to have an update on the stock rom, so I decided to flash the newest stock Rom for the Korean varient of this phone and do the exact same thing to ensure it's rooted. However it appears that root checker couldn't seem to verify the root by informing "Your phone is not properly rooted". I have done the exact same thing, step by step, flashing no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0 and Magisk through TWRP but nothing improves. Please help!

*Note: I have tried updating to the latest version of Magisk, but to no avail.

Here is my exact device and software:

S7 SM-G930T Snapdragon T-mobile with Nougat 7.0, G930TUVS4BRC1. I'm not 100% sure of the bootloader status because this phone was purposefully OTA updated to Oreo, and this update directly from T-Mobile caused text and phone calls to not work, so I found a way to downgrade back to 7.0 (pm me if you want that info). So whether bootloader 8 was maintained or if I stayed on 4 I'm not sure, but that's what I know.

I want to get Magisk installed, and using TWRP would be really easy to do that, but this guide doesn't specify exactly how compatible it is if on nougat or which bootloader is being used. Because I have my phone setup the way I want, it would be a waste to format only to find out I can't install TWRP. So I'd really appreciate confirmation that it will work for my exact situation and any other tips.

Works like a charm

Thank you !

It works on s7

Same process does NOT work on the latest Oreo update.
Flashed rom
Flashed twrp
Formatted data
Rebooted to recovery
Installed no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0.zip
Installed Magisk 17.3 (same result even if Magisk is skipped, tried w/o due to this issue)
Rebooted to system and letting it boot up
Rebooting straight to recovery, and still get unable to mount data due to encryption.
Something in the latest stock kernel seem to be circumventing the no-verity-opt-encrypt zip since it was working on the previous update.

EDIT: Got it working by following this post and using the remove-encryption.zip found in that thread (this post).
Still no idea why no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0.zip didn't work even without Magisk.

    Hi . i see too many peoples have problem on rooting Android 8.0 Oreo Stock Rom on Galaxy S7 ( edge ) and they cant get passed from the verification field error ! ok its bcuz they do only 1 step wrong , here i just wanna tell you all the steps 1 by 1 to help you make it work .

    ok first , if you wanna have a Rooted stock Oreo Rom , you need to factory reset your device , so backup everything you need then follow the steps :







    1- Download Odin 3.13.1 -------- TWRP 3.2.3 Recovery -------- Android 8.0 Oreo Stock Rom -------- Magisk v 17.1 -------- no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0 .



    Copy Magisk v17.1 and no-verity-opt files into your SD card , or you can copy them after you installed TWRP using mount !





    2- Go to Odin , and flash the Stock Rom oreo , BUT before you start go to Options and deselect F. reset time and Auto reboot .

    3- when the Rom flash is done . just hold Power + volume down + home buttons to restart the phone . keep holding the buttons to return Download mode again !


    NOTE : you have to reboot to download mode again after flashing Stock Rom . bcuz odin wont install TWRP and will stop on waiting for connection if you do flash TWRP right after flashing rom without reboot ! just after flashing ROM , do a reboot with device buttons and keep holding them to go straight to download mode again . then you can flash TWRP .







    4- now go to Odin again and now Flash the TWRP recovery . before you start go to options and deselect F .reset time and Auto reboot .





    5- now hold Power + Volume down + Home buttons , when your device screen goes off , fast switch the buttons to Power + Volume up + home to boot into TWRP recovry .





    6- now go to Wipe and select Format Data . it will ask you to type yes . type yes and continue . you do this to remove encryption on your phone memory .


    NOTE : Just select Format data . DON'T select advanced wipe or swip to factory reset . you have to select Format data and it will ask you to type "yes" . do it and go on .





    attachment.php







    7- now go to reboot and reboot to TWRP recovery again ! ( you have to reboot to recovery bcuz you cant reach /DATA when you do Format data )

    8- now go to install , and install Magisk and no-Verity-opt .





    9- now restart your phone normaly and let it boot up and do the first boot settings .





    10 - thats it , now you can see Magisk on your apps list and your Stock Rom is rooted .






    NOTE : for the guys that already installed Stock oreo Rom , they dont need to flash Rom again , they can skip Step 2 and 3 !




    just do all the steps 1 by 1 as i said and it will work 100% . some guys cant make it work bcuz : 1 - they dont do Format Data before installing Magisk and they get "cant mount /data error" and verification field pops up . 2- they do format data after installing magisk !!!! thats crazy bcuz you just clear Magisk when you do format data after installing it .



    i hope this guide be helpful for you guys . ;)

    does it work for sm g935s (8.0)

    yes , it works . you just need to download last version of TWRP recovery for your device from here :

    Thank you, this is a great guide! Worth to mention that TWRP is flashed as AP in Odin, though.

    Hello! So I successfully rooted my phone with this method (thank you!) But soon after that I tried to boot into recovery mode, in which I was met with "FRP LOCK" message and now I have to redo the whole process again. Is there an extra step as in turning off "OEM Unlocking" ?

    Its in developer option where you can turn it off or on but if your rooting you need to turn it on.

    ---------- Post added at 12:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:47 PM ----------

    I must check OEM unlock option in development settings before root stock rom or not?

    Yes! :)
