I wiped data and cache from recovery, then flashed the CRE2 that was recently uploaded and still have the bluetooth issue. Anytime I reboot the phone or watch, or turn my car off I lose bluetooth connection and have to repair. Other than that its amazingly smooth after wiping data.

So I started over and reflashed all the files, no debloat script this time. I had my roommate call and leave a short voicemail. Still no missed call/voicemail notifications.
I don't know how many times I have to tell you. You have to use the vvm app. You have to activate basic service. Its free

It's BEEN activated since I first got the phone. I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself.
Then how are you not receiving a voicemail notification. The red Verizon voice mail app (vvm) gives you the voicemail notification not the phone app. I don't know what to tell you I get a status bar notification of missed call and a lockscreen notification of missed call and a always on display notification of missed call. I also get a voicemail notification. You seem to be the only one this is not working for so what do you want me to do? You tried just like I asked. You didn't install any apps or disable anything and you had someone call you and you get no missed call notification of any kind?

I do yes because now that I've been introduced to it with this rom I can't live without it ? Xposed edge is amazing.
Well did you wait to install xposed until the phone was booted and through setup? Also if you wipe data with xposed framework installed that will kill the bt pairs

@jrkruse have you tried anything with the v4 bootloader to see if it's patched.if you have a build but don't want to update your bootloader i'm willing to test it for you.
We don't have any combo firmware so there would be no way to test yet. I will bet the farm its patched

I actually flashed Xposed once the CRE2 was flashed... Didn't wait to get into Android.

So, just to make sure I'm taking the proper steps; I need to disable and uninstall Xposed, then wipe data and cache, then reflash CRE2? If this is correct, I can do this tomorrow.

It's been a while since I've REALLY messed with Android devices. I'm coming from iPhone to the S8 after 5 years but I used to root/flash the transformer tablets, zte phones etc. I'm just trying to get back into the groove and I've not dealt with Samsung flashing in the past. I greately appreciate the help.

There's no Xposed on the phone when i finish install the G950USQU2CRE2_ODIN_SAMFAIL.zip. I don't know should there be a Xposed on it or should i Enter the Safestrap then flash the Xposed.zip?

The recent update took out xposed so your bluetooth devices could pair and remember without always re-pairing on each reboot. You could manually flash xposed in safestrap

    S8+ Uses If You Do Not Have Safestrap Installed And Are On Any Version Bootloader Through Latest V8 Bootloader Follow These Direction

    S8+ SM-G955U/U1/W Install Instructions And Files
    If you didnt upgrade to V8 bootloaders using odin. I recommend flashing full stock firmware with V8 bootloaders even if you are already on V8 bootloader via OTA update. I feel that maybe something in the OTA from V7 bootloaders to V8 may have corrupted a bootloader file and some people have experienced bricks with trying to update to V8 bootloaders from V7 using the below method so I recommend flashing full stock V8 firmware in Odin before trying this method and just understand there has been a risk of bricking device. Full stock can be found on Sammobile or updato or any other service you can find it. You will have to reroot of course. If you Updated to V8 bootloaders using odin method already then no need to do so again

If after several bootloops still no error force a reboot of phone and let it try again. If still after several attempts reboot to download mode and In odin load BL_ENG_BOOTLOADERS_SAFESTRAP_G95*U_V*.tar.md5 in BL slot and flash. Phone reboot to stock recovery there wipe cache and reboot back to bootloader from recovery and go back and start again from step 8 You cannot move on until you get that error screen

    7. Ok once you have the error and phone bootlooped after the error and you forced rebooted to download. In odin load BL_G95*USQU5CS**tar.md5 in BL slot and HOME_CSC_OYN_G95*U*****tar.md5 in CSC slot and flash

    2. To leave safestrap reboot to bootloader or download still does not work so you still need to manually reboot to bootloader

    3. Use modded Odin and load BL_DELETE_CACHE_G95*_V*_BL.tar.md5 In BL Slot and flash

    4. Phone will reboot to recovery it will try and process update then on blue screen you get an Error(Click For Pic) and recovery will start rebooting let recovery bootloop once then force back to download mode and goto step 5
    If on blue screen you get the No Command(Click For Pic) title instead of the Error(Click For Pic) title instead of the Error(Click For Pic) title on the blue screen then let phone bootloop and force back to download
    mode and In odin load BL_ENG_BOOTLOADERS_SAFESTRAP_G95*U_V*.tar.md5 in BL slot and flash. Phone reboot to stock recovery there wipe cache and reboot back to bootloader from recovery and goback and start again from step 3

    8. As soon as phone powers off force reboot to recovery. If you get an Error(Click For Pic) in stock recovery instead of No Command(Click For Pic) and phone says dm verity failed reboot from recovery to bootloaders and start on step 3 in To Enter And Exit Safestrap

    9. If you get the No Command(Click For Pic) and it says successfully verified dmverity hashtree(It may not say this until you click reboot system) (Click For Pic)
    Wipe cache in recovery then reboot and you are done unless below statement refers to you then follow then skip cache wipe and reboot and follow below.

    If you came to these instructions because you were directed to do so during install because you installed SM_955_U_Mods_Safe_OTA_PIE.zip during initial install then you will need to flash the BL_G95*USQS5****tar.md5 found in the Samfail Install Files folder so in recovery click reboot bootloader and in odin BL slot flash BL_G95*USQS5****tar.md5. This file only needs to be flashed once so next time you leave safestrap you can skip this and stop at above step

    SM_955_Mods_Safestrap_PIE.zip

    View attachment Adaway_Blocking_No_Root_Pie.zip
    Install zip in safestrap
    boot phone back up to system
    you will have 2 apps in your apps drawer Host Adblocking and Stock Adblocking
    too enable adblocking run the Host Adblocking app it may require rebooting phone to work
    too disable adblocking run Stock Adblocking this probably will not require a reboot
    what this does is move the system/etc/hosts file to the internal storage of your phone then I symliink the one in the internal storage to the system/etc/host file this way the file can be changed back and forth . If you would wipe data in stock recovery however you would need to reflash the zip in safetrap as a data wipe would delete the host file since it is now located on internal storage

    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

    I have never been able to get this guys stuff to boot. I think this is at least the fourth time I tried over the past year. Then again he cant even spell "reset" correctly, intertwines download mode and recovery.... soooo yeah.
    Well spelling is not my strong point. Between my roms I have thousands of downloads so I guess all those thousands of people never got my rom to install so my suggestion to you is use someone else's rom or stay stock that will save you alot of problems.
