I'm having trouble copying the system IMG to my storage on my vzw s8+..it will not copy. I'm without a OS also. I can move the modem zip to storage but not the IMG file, I don't have any clue as to why...I installed G955_ZSBB_samfail_pie_files and the AP_safestrap_only_system IMG tar the 1st time and I managed to get everything to pass the only thing I couldn't get to flash is the system IMG cause I couldn't get it to copy, but everything else flashed fine. Once finished I noticed it said ATT at the very bottom of the stock recovery screen under the dmverity,I have a vzw s8+.

Take the SD card out of your phone and put it in your computer. Transfer the file. Then put it back in your phone.

I'm gonna barrow a SD card. There are some pictures on the cards I'm gonna barrow I hope it doesn't format it.

I installed the SD card and I still can't copy ZSBB_System IMG file to card.

You need to put the sd card in an adapter. Put it in your computer and copy the file to it. Then put the sd card back in r your phone.

I would had liked to had this ROM but seems I'm having some issues. I'm on v5 bootloader would I be able to head over and grab the stock Verizon Oreo files and flash those instead. Instead of flashing 1 at a time with Odin I'd be able to flash all the files at the same time. Man its been awhile since iv messed with this s8+ haven't used it in almost a year.

I would like too take a minute and remind everyone that the reason we still have development on S8 is mainly because we have safestrap. @afaneh92 has maintained and made safestrap work for us he has worked very hard and spent hundreds of hours on it. Please consider donating to him.

I don't believe the SM-G950U/U1 can use the samfail method after version 3 bootloader.
I think as soon as you went to bootloader version 4/5 you lost the option of going back to nougat with root. I may be wrong and there May be a way but uncertain on the s8. I have the s8+.
Are you currently on a safestrap rom?

    Pie Mod Zips

    SM_955U1_Mods_Safe_OTA_PIE_V4.zip Only Use On U1 Pie
    SM_955_Mods_Safe_OTA_PIE.zip Fine to use on SM-G950(Do Not Use On U1 Pie)
    Google_Style_PIE_U1_Build4.zip. Google style mods for U1 pie.
    This installs all google apps and removes all samsung equivalent apps also adds same csc mods as the SM_955U1_Mods_Safe_OTA_PIE so no need to flash both.
    Also no need to use adb uninstall method on this zip the zip removes the apps for you
    Directions
    Goto settings/apps and add google dialer as default call app and allow all permissions on google dialer, contacts, launcher, messages and calander and clock apps

    I would like to say thank you to all the people that donated money to me in 2018. What I did was save the money over the year which added up to be a little over 200 dollars. I took that money and order 30 pizzas and had them delivered to my local homeless shelter. So thank you for allowing me too help out some people in need
