SM-S515DL (Variant of SM-A515U) Root instructions/Files

Search This thread
1st- thank you to everyone at XDA- you all have saved me countless times with your wisdom. I thought Id share my steps here. (I did this after rooting the SM-G988U which is much easier) special Thank you to all the hard work on the scene @afaneh92 and @elliwigy -

This is the US model, so Bootloader is locked and no OEM toggle in developer options.
You first have to unlock the ability to load custom BootLoader files. There's a service out there that does it for a fee.
Backup your stuff cause this does wipe everything...

FILES USED: Here Feel free to post elsewhere, i take no credit other than figuring out how to get it rooted- the files were sources form other XDA posts.

Instructions:
1: Odin c3.14.1_3B_Patched
2: plug in thee phone and boot to download mode fresh FW
//Uncheck auto-reboot// in Odin
//flash full factory Rom with CSC not Home (SM-S515DL_S515DLUDS5BUB1_Q(Android 10)_TFN_Factory Rom (5 File)_20210317)
//manual reboot back into download mode
3: Load TWRP

you can run the following files from a sd card:

Once in TWRP:
1-Install MultiDisabler, then do the full reformat Wipe- do not reboot here,
2-back out to main menu and select reboot to recovery
3-install disable_DM-Verity Zip
4-install Magisk Canary ZIP
5-reboot regular
6-wait 20 min for the system to reload
7-run through the initial setup
8-I usually unlock dev options and enable USB debug before anything, but its not required
8/9-Connect to wifi or signal and update magisk and reboot
You are now rooted

This is currently working up to the latest patch at the moment (SM-S515DL_S515DLUDS5BUB1_Q(Android 10)_TFN_Factory Rom (5 File)_20210317
