thanks that worked. funny that i did try it before and it wouldn't get my oem option to show up... heh, i am not complaining tho. just glad that I can try unlocking the bootloader finally.Try this..
Turn off auto update..set date 8 days ahead...check for software update. If there is one instantly back out of it. Reboot. Set date to correct date reboot check for oem unlock
Yeah, it's not hard to do. Just unlock the bootloader, patch the boot with Magisk and you are good to go. I've just created magisk module today taken SER CSC part (from optics folder) from latest Exynos 986B firmware and put it into TGY of my Snapdragon version + added some tweaks like call recording. Now I have almost SER deviceI used to root all my samsung phones just for the simple fact of being able to flash F model firmware ports to be able to enjoy system-wide Russian language support.
