When you install TWRP via ODIN - make sure its no to Auto Reboot, you have to wipe then install kernel, then disbaler in twrp

Yes thats what I exactly did. Installed TWRP with Auto reboot unchecked in ODIN. Manually booted to TWRP, Formated data, (typed yes), Flashed kernal as 'boot' section in TWRP, than disabler. But upon reboot afterwords, it is always going to TWRP recovery.

same thing for me im on CTL2 and 3.4.0.9 and still bootloops ,
i tried both kernels permissive
and newest kernel as of today

I don't know what to say, both kernels are tested and working as of last night. 3.03

Edit.. I'll say this. If it's not working for you, simply use the stock kernel and flash Magisk over that. Until I get proper n20 source code...

WETA Kernel 3.1

Updated to N986U TL2 source code
All mods present

* Be aware, a handful of people report bootloops after updating the kernel, if you end up in this situation, you can either keep using the kernel you were on previously, or wipe data. It's unknown what is causing this. 3.1 will be the final update until new source becomes available, so if you do decide to wipe, then you will be good for a.while.

    USA stuff

    I personally own the SM-N9860 device. I successfully converted the csc region to USA (tmobile) by doing the following.

    1. Created a .tar of super.img from TH3 SM-N986U1 firmware (AP)
    2. Created a .tar of prism.img.lz4, optics.img.lz4, cache.img.lz4, omr.img.lz4 from TH3 SM-N986U1 firmware (CSC)
    3. Flash with odin, super.tar in the AP slot, and the CSC.tar in the CSC slot.
    4. Boot into stock recovery and perform a factory reset

    You will also need to edit mps_code.dat inside /efs/imei to reflect the carrier you desire. This needs to be done from a rooted system or from TWRP. After doing this and rebooting, you will be booted into your carriers system.
