Return to stock question

After installing the pie beta on my Verizon sm-955u can I return to full verizon stock by using oden and flashing all these files at the same time or are there specific steps to take or a specific order to flash?
thanks for any help.

@jrkruse
Question for you. I'm still running brb1 rooted with v5 bootloader. I REALLY like root, but the main reason being I prefer to move updated apps from the data to system partition, so I'm always updated if I ever need to reset things and start over. Is your Pie zsc2 with safdstrap going to give me that ability? I realize I won't be able to run programs that raq root privileges, but is that something I'll be able to do - and will it be cumbersome?
Lastly, if I flash your latest pie, will I be able to get Verizon's volte, vowifi, Vmail?
Sorry for incredibly stupid questions as I've been In the scene for a while BUT I'm far from a safestrap guru.
Thanks for all your amazing work!
PS. Even with loss of root in PIE, do you think it's worth while going from s8+ with v5 bootloader brb1 to PIE without root? I really want your brutally honest opinion...

3MinitBattery_G955U1_DSD5 mods

Here are the 3MinitBattery mods (installer and uninstaller zips) for the G955U1 DSD5 firmware.

The installer and unistaller are contained in this rar:
extract them to your sdcard first.

https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=6006931924117893189

Flash them in SafeStrap TWRP (you may need to manually mount the system before installing). Ignore the message about manually installing the 3MinitBatterySettings.apk. It is installed by the zip.

Hi @jrkruse. I have installed the G955U1. However, when trying to flash any zips in TWRP they fail. I have also tried manually mounting the system in the TWRP mount and that still doesn't give success with installing any zips.

I also noticed that the first bootup screen into SafeStrap shows that the model name is a G955U and not G955U1.

Also the BL_ENG_BOOTLOADERS_SAFESTRAP_G955U_V5.tar says G955U and not G955U1 in the filename.


In addition, after installing a zip, the system partition cannot be manually mounted, unless one reboots into SafeStrap.


Any suggestions on how to resolve these issues?

That works only once. Thereafter, all flashing attempts show:
Failed to mount '/system' (device or resource busy)
Manually trying to mount system fails to change the checkbox to checked.

sorry if I've missed this...but does the latest ROM support bypassing verizon unlimited data provisioning check?

I can't get it to work after flashing

thanks

UPDATE - 2019-08-03
I got it working. I had to go back and forth between this ROM and https://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-galaxy-s8+/development/rom-t3771206

before doing that, G955_MODEMS_****.zip was failing to install.

Thank you for the ROM....my S8+ can now easily last another year+!

    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

    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
