I'm in trouble. After steps one and two.
the three
"Use provided odin and In odin AP slot load the COMBINATION_FA70_G950USQU7ASK1.tar.md5 in CSC slot load G950U_CACHE_FORCE_REBOOT_V7.tar.md5 and flash when done phone will reboot to recovery."

start flash to odin display pass, but my phone not reboot to recovery mode.
I try to use the volume down and power button to reboot and the screen doesn't show the logo, just a blinking white line, what should I do?

I got a used S8 recently and stupid me flashed the latest Pie stock firmware with Bootloader V8 before finding this thread.

When I try to do the steps I get "sw rev check fail: [abl] Fused 8 > Binary 7". Any way to get around this?

request root for G950W extreme syndicate way

This is amazing what u did guys,tho i need to request root files for G950W the canadian model.
you have successfully made a safestraps file for android pie which i think could be working for this two model (canadian and usa) G950w/u. but the v7 bootloder files of my G950w i did a researcg on this website anf i found none. in my case it would be
COMBINATION_FA70_G950WVLS7CTC1tar.7z which then i could proceed with rooting mine. please help me out cuz G950 can not get the booloader unlocked as well and i am sure if u managed to make Root for G950U the G950W is pretty close it is just few modification.

Thank for your reply bro,so u mean I can proceed with this process using SM G950U files on my SM G950W? I Really need to root my phone but wasn't so sure I could use the files provided with this process. I couldn't risk running into a problem where I got few options to get back.lol

Hi guys, it seems like my Canadian version of S8 still has hope of being rooted. Just want to confirm before I give it a try.
On the back of my S8, it says SM--G950U, yet About Phone tells me it's SM-G950W. Baseband version is G950WVLU8CTF3. Android version 9. So the bootloader version is V8 I think.
"You can be on any version bootloader. This will update you to V7 bootloader". Does that mean that this method will work in my case?

Can anyone please help to confirm if I get it right? Thanks a lot @jrkruse and @elliwigy.

well bro, i managed to root my Canadian model successfully using this files listed above i the process of rooting using this meyhod of SM-G950U on my SM-G950W i had before. Now in my settings it's an SM-G950U. Tho in my case i had a bootloader V7,in your case u have updated your phone with new security patch that samsung released. so i don't think u can proceed with rooting your phone. maybe u can wait for another hack from the developer who made this possible. I checked there was a process to upgrade to bootloader V7 from lower version in the section to add android pie backsplash after rooting. But i can not confirm this process can downgrade your bootloader V8 to V7. u can wait for further assist from the developer. Hope my reply gave u a clear view of what u were asking.

Thank you very much. That's very clear. I'll wait to see if the developer can come up with any new solution.

Good evening, I rooted my s8 using this method. It seems everything works except mobile data. When the phone first powers on it says carrier ATT but I'm on straight talk (vzw). Calls and txt work fine. Any ideas?

[ROOT] [Extreme Syndicate] [Snapdragon][G950U/U1][V7 Bootloaders]

If anyone is thinking on updating phones now is the time. The method of unlocking bootloaders on US variants works one s10/s20 and n10/n20 phones. Read the whole article too get info and yes it works I have a bootloader unlocked sm-g975u s10+ with twrp and magisk installed.

    If you have the G955U this might fix your problems 😉

    Read it carefully before you do anything.

    Comes with safestrap.


    Not even gon a bother with the F version as I don't have a 955F
    lmao kanged.. Nice job at the thread hijack lol Maybe next time you will ask for permission from the dev whos work you want to use and give credits when due. Its always a good idea to refresh yourself and look over the rules before posting.

    There is a new root method that I am testing out if interested join the telegram thread to test out if I feel it is safe again I will post stuff here

    Link To Telegram Channel S8_N8_ROOT

    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
