Both actually.

First time Oreo, but almost a year back I screwed up a flash (didnt read the directions close enough) and I had to reflash stock firmware which was Pie, and didnt have to wait either time
I messaged o.p but he's not responding

I never had to wait, my region is United Arab Emirates
I have single SIM. Think I'd be able to flash your fw? Yours is dual sim

After the 7th or 8th day, do I power off and go into download mode or do I access download mode within Android?

Can u answer my question above your post? Thanks

Im sorry, i was not trying to address you myself, i was trying to address the Moderator of this group about TWRP
The Answer to your question is thus:
With a samsung device that has a Vol up/Vol Down, a Bixby button, and a separate power button
you enter 'download' mode (also known as recovery mode) by holding the power button, the volume up button, and the Bixby button
from the phone in its off state first

Method 2 (optional - only if you have say, an Xposed mod that gives you this ability, or other root based app):

Hold down the power button (long press) > Choose 'Restart' which then brings up a menu with one of those options being 'Download'
which reboots your phone into download mode

Lol. Thanks for the reply, but I know how to do that. Hehe. I was asking if I should boot to dl mode via while in Android or power off and access dl to flash TWRP after 7 day wait.

Question: Is version 3.4.0 of TWRP official or merely
Alpha/Beta ?
TWRP 3.4 is junk. Use 3.3.0. ....3.4 throws mounting errors.

Yeah, I tried 3.4 and all it did was throw mounting errors and invalid arguments

Code:
~ # dd if=/dev/block/sda17 of=/external_sd/TWRP/sda17 bs=4M
dd: writing '/external_sd/TWRP/sda17': File too large
1025+0 records in
1023+1 records out
4294967295 bytes (4.0GB) copied, 141.685785 seconds, 28.9MB/s
~ #

Yep, backing up to FAT32 is bad - my bad.

Worked without issues after reformatting µSD as ext4.

My bad that i didn't tested otg on s8 assuming that if it works on note8, it works on s8* too. I submitted a patch in review and will test it myself today as i don't have the otg dongle right now.
As for twrp source, yes it's 7.1, will edit OP if this causes troubles. I don't want to argue with anyone, i only made things official as you know the quota issues, not to mention all the flame from telegram regarding "use official even if it doesn't properly work".
Peace.

    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.
