Thanks for your help, but this doesn’t work on the SM-G9600. Flashing the zip file hangs up TWRP. I followed your instructions explicitly multiple times.

Did you use the correct TWRP? Not exynos one.


#4

Yup. Official TWRP for Snapdragon. Got it from here:

So it reboots then gangs?

Yes, but I think your root is fine. I suspect I have Hong Kong, not Chinese firmware on my phone; when booting, I just saw Chinese characters and assumed all was good. I’ll check when I have some time tonight and if so, I’ll flash it and try again. I’m also going to assume everything will work fine. I’ll report back and if everything works, admit to being a careless dumbass. Thanks for all your work on this.

I think it works on any Qualcomm with unlocked bootloader but it could be TWRP problem if it doesn’t work, try grabbing another version on XDA.

Tried again on Chinese firmware. Still freezes when flashing the zip file. No TWRP issue as far as I can tell; I’m running the official version. I am trying on a SM-G9600; the zip file says 965. I think its a bad rooting file for this phone.
