Root and TWRP for Galaxy S8+ (Currently non-working status)

Recommended Posts

 

 

Just switched from the Note 5 to the S8+ so I thought I'd start a thread. I can confirm that TWRP and cf-auto root on the Xxynos processor will fail on snapdragon

I'll be keeping up with daily checks on root and recovery and will post results when available.

This is just the progress of root, correct? No root has been accomplished quite yet of I'm not mistaken?

Thank you for this post find!

Yes I have.
Read read read the O.P.
THEN read it again.
Get all your files downloaded and have adb working with your phones.
THEN read the O.P. again.
Now you may be ready to root but just to be sure, read the O.P. again.
Battery only charges to 80%
It's known. Don't ask about it in the thread.... It's been beat to death.
Good luck and happy flashing!

They have updated the OP to now include a batch file (.bat) to gain root.
No more adb commands to deal with and mess up.
Much easier and more user friendly root process.

Awesome.  My contract (!) is up in a month, and I'm considering the S8.

 

Not wanting to lose my legacy (not throttled for video) unlimited, I'm thinking of getting an unlocked S8 from Best Buy... 

 

Have you noticed any issues with the battery?  In real life use, does it seem like it is truly only charging to 80%, or is it only a display error?

 

I know I'll lose the ability to use Samsung Pay, but I have no interest in that, anyway.  I'm more likely to have my wallet and not my phone than my phone and not my wallet!

It truly does only charge to 80%
But after you get your kernel tweaked and set up and turn off most of the stuff you never use, you'll still get close to 2 days on a charge which works fine for me.
