A few days ago we told you about the release of the kernel for the versions with Exynos processors of the flagships of the Korean manufacturer. With this, it was clear that very soon we could install ROMs on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Well, that moment has arrived.
And, as it could not be otherwise, the XDA community went to work with both devices to get as soon as possible a TWRP for the new members of the Galaxy S family of the Korean manufacturer. Said and done, we can now install a ROM on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
It has been Jesec one of the most recognized developers in XDA, who has managed to create a fully functional TWRP for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + with which we can install a custom ROM without major problems.
Yes, you can already install ROMs on the Samsung Galaxy S9
Of course, as we said at the time, for now, you can only install the TWRP on models with Exynos processor. As for now, it is not possible to unlock the bootloader or Bootloader of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 + with Qualcomm processor, these models can not yet be rooted.
Anyway, we must remember that the model with SoC Exynos has arrived in Europe, so we will not have any problem in that aspect.
Recall that the TWRP is basic to recover the device in case the installation of the ROM fails for any reason. Also many times the recovery is essential to flash a ROM since the recovery of the OEM will prevent the installation of unofficial software.
Also, keep in mind that both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the more vitamin version will reach the market with Android 8 Oreo and Treble project under your arm. What does this mean? Once we have the official TWRP, we can install a custom ROM at the moment we buy the phone.
Possibly we find some initial error, but the creator of the TWRP that will allow us to install ROM on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus states that the recovery should start and work properly.
An excellent news that will accelerate, and much, the arrival of the first custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 +. Finally, we are going to leave you with the links so you can download the recovery for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +.
