How to enter flash mode

When the device is fully powered off, hold Power, Volume Down, and Bixby for a few seconds.

A (turquoise) download mode warning screen should appear.

Installation

Doesn't work yet.

What I did

  • Grab TWRP for greatqlte.
  • Grab SM-N950U_NA_PP_Opensource.zip from the Samsung Open Source website.
  • Disable defex_lsm and Knox
  • Disable/enable everything that the checker complains about
  • Apply patch 0001 and 0002 from oneplus-cheeseburger.
  • Now the kernel compiles, and you can theoretically flash it if you didn't have a locked bootloader :(
