Hello I own G950F with Pie update what should I do to install TWRP and later custom roms and magisk root? Is it locked and I am forced to stay on Sammy stock?

I gather your are on 3.3.1.1
I've had no issues so far with it. Updated via twrp.
A few people have had issues with preload failing to mount.
- Either install previous version ( 3.3.1.0 ).
- Maybe mount preload in Mount menu.
- Format preload partition only through the wipe
menu.

[/COLOR]sorry for the big images I don't know how to make them small

Late answer, but it didn't let you because RMM State Prenormal, but since 1 week+ has passed and I "guess" you haven't rebooted the phone, you should be able to flash unofficial binaries now

a lot of us are having issues about getting the rmm state to normal or have it not show up. Do you know a method that we can use?

I'm pretty sure you have data encrypted. You can only access it in the running rom. If you can't boot as you are now, flash no-verity-opt-encrypt and you can boot with that, even if encrypted. Boot up stock rom, use titanium or any other solution to backup your data and after that you can format data, boot unencrypted and restore the backups.
As for userdata dump, even if you dump it you can't decrypt it, also systemless root can't decrypt it either.
I thought we had to flash 2 files. .... Opt opt encrypt and RMM Mesa bypass. ?

    Official TWRP 3.6.1-* For Galaxy S8/S8+ Exynos
    Only for exynos variants - G950F (Europe, Global Single-SIM); G950FD (Global Dual-SIM); G950N (South Korea); G955F (Europe, Global Single-SIM); G955FD (Global Dual-SIM); G955N (South Korea);
    Disclaimer
    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
    Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery before flashing it!
    YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    Features:
    Code:
    - built from Pie kernel source
    - built from android-9.0 recovery sources
    - built in full 64 mode
    - fully compatible with Android 8.*/9.0/10.0

    Downloads:

    Instructions:
    Odin

    1. Download latest Odin zip from downloads.corsicanu.ro/samsung
    2. Download and install Samsung Drivers (if you have them installed you can skip this step)
    3. Go to settings/Developer options and enable OEM unlock (If you don't see developer settings, go into Settings/About phone/Software info and tap "Build number" 10 times to show Developer options menu)
    4. Download TWRP_*.tar
    5. Switch off the phone
    6. Use Bixby Key+Volume Down+Power to enter Download Mode and connect the device to usb
    7. Open Odin and untick autoreboot in "options" tab. Also make sure that your device is detected
    8. Put TWRP_*.tar.md5 file into AP tab
    9. Click Start
    10. When Odin shows "PASS", take your device in hands, disconnect the usb cable and press simultaneously the "Bixby key" + "Vol. Down" + "Power" buttons until the downoad mode disappears
    11. At the precise moment the screen becomes black, immediately release the "Vol.Down" button and press the "Bixby key" + "Vol. UP" + "Power" buttons during 10 to 15sec to forcefully enter TWRP
    12. If it didn`t worked, redo the steps from #1 more careful this time.

    TWRP
    • Download TWRP_*.img, push it into phone storage, choose install image in your current recovery, navigate to downloaded *.img file, select it, select to flash as recovery.
    After booting in TWRP download and flash no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.1 zip to disable data partition encryption
    If for any reason you fail to install TWRP multiple times/different methods, make sure you check this thread

    Q: Phone is showing only Samsung logo
    A: Try to reboot. If still not booting, consider installing an older TWRP build or a more recent firmware.

    Q: I get "Failed to mount /preload message", what to do?
    A: From wipe menu select Advanced Wipe, select preload partition to be wiped and reboot recovery.

    Q: Why do i need to format data partition?
    A: Because old rom encrypted your data partition and new rom can't decrypt and use that content / root needs access to data partition to place misc files / phone not booting after flashing root until data partition gets formatted.
