    Last I remember he still had the arm folders in his Rom he gave me the info on assays kitchen(Not sure if I spelled it right). I've also seen s8+ roms(cough cough) that were fully deodexed and no arm folders even ran it on my s8 once but the resolution was too small for me lol.

    Also got your pm but nothing was in there lol
    Its been doing that. Said i was gonna try it sometime this weekend. Been having weird no signal issues i believe is related a baseband issue if i reboot be3n taking upto 5 min to get signal. I did a lot of blind tweaks after my last weeks reset and thinking i did something wrong

    Um i know we dont really talk about telegram much any more but i got a semi private group with a few well known fellars but if any of you where to join you could probably ask cyborg or a few others for tips. It can be off topic a lot. And be quiet but the idea i had was to pretty much gather up as many devs and legit sources on unlocking and other mobile related services and have a big collaboration group. We all talk dev related everynow and then
    But if any of you want to join your more than welcome

    Do we have to follow from step 1 and then flash rom?
    Or we can boot into safestrap and flash TWRP as I already have EDL safestrap as per Jrkruse post
    Thanks

    if you want flashable zip from safestrap recovery its uploading and will post the instruction when finished.

    Sounds cool, just when things was getting boring for the s8, OP, just curious how did you deodex your framework, I have been able to deodex with assyad kitchen but will only boot with the boot folder in framework?

    I made this ROM long time ago, I remember that I used superR's kitchen!
    Will check later.
