    On the download you provided, it said "for the Samsung Galaxy S8(SM-G950F), by Jesse Chan"
    Will it work on the Galaxy s8 Unlocked (SM-G950U1)?

    I followed your whole guide word for word twice and was able to odin the QF7 to allow the 1.0.6 official version of CROM to unlock my phone which Is a s8+ SM-G9550 6gb RAM/128gb model I bought off of amazon.
    TWRP flashed no problem and I was able to hold vol up bixby and power to boot right into the TWRP. I then wiped data, rebooted recover,(skiped to part3), then flashed this kernel, then magisk 13.3.
    Finally I click reboot system and my phone hangs on"Set warranty bit: Kernel"
    Im going to Odin QE7 from scratch again and just try to install the TWRP and see if the phone will work without root and your kernel for now =(

    As a follow up I am able to just flash the t dm-verity and force encryption disabler and boot the phone just fine.

    So Either the kernel is not working with my s8+ SM-G9550 6gb RAM/128gb model or magisk 13.3

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Anybody onboard to take part of a bounty to have a working kernel for S8+ 128Gb HK? Seems like Jesec is not around anymore and I am definitely willing to pay to have magisk working on my S8+
    I'll throw in 10 bucks

    20 for some tweaks to the kernel like overclocking

      oK first time I didnt so I redid all the steps and installed your image to boot.
      phone boots but when you restart it manually it shows secutity Error screen and the phone does not start.

      I will need to use Odin again.
      Let it sit at that Seandroid error it will boot eventually

      Add me for 20. I think we won't be long to reach a decent sum (for "just" a kernel)
      Just got the device, the reason that the kernel wont boot is due to a partitioning issue with the fstab. When my device arrives i should hopefully begin working on a kernel :) stay tuned!
