Samsung S6 G925T Root TWRP 2.8.7.x [Recovery] Aou's OF8 Stock Kernel




WARNING: Flashing any custom firmware to your device will trip the KNOX Warranty Bit. At this time, this is irreversible, and might cause you problems when returning faulty devices to T-Mobile or Samsung. YMMV.

How-To-Install :
  1. Recognize that this will trip KNOX.
  2. Be sure you're actually already running the 5.1.1 (OF8) firmware. If you're on 5.0.2 (OCG, for example), this thread is not for you.
  3. Turn on "OEM unlocking" in Settings -> Developer options. This is the dreaded "FRP LOCK" that prohibits custom firmware from being flashed to the G925T/G920T (and maybe others) - it's something new in 5.1.1.
  4. Download and Odin-flash my v13 of TWRP 2.8.7.x.
  5. Download and Odin-flash (or TWRP-flash) my v1 build of the OF8 kernelG920T users should use the appropriate G920T kernel for their device.
  6. (Optional): Download and TWRP-flash Chainfire's SuperSU v2.49 
  7. The latest test release is: 
    BETA-SuperSU-v2.49.zip
     (.zip format).
  8. (Advice): Use Titanium Backup or some other app to freeze/disable/uninstall "SecurityLogAgent" (remove nagging about security) and "com.tmobile.pr.adapt" (remove nagging about root, helps with sleep, and may be used by T-Mobile to determine your rooted status).
Enjoy TWRP + Root with an almost-completely-stock OF8 kernel/system!
