Can I install e os on Galaxy S8 (G950N)

I have Korean version of galaxy S8, which is G950N, most custom roms support it, even lineage Os, so I’m wondering if I can run this OS without hard bricking the phone.


You can try but I think there is no ROM for your device.
There is only build for dreamlte which is SM-G950F, SM-G950FD.
Ask some developer support to build /e/ ROM.

Officially, /e/ OS only supports the European model.The Korean models are usually distinguished from the European models in modem frequencies.

The Korean SM-G950N is a Tri-band (900/1800/1900), while the European SM-G950F is a Qquad-band (850/900/1800/1900).

Since the specs are otherwise very similar, it might depend on an attempt …?

Thanks, I’m just afraid of trying… To avoid bricking the phone.

Bricking a Samsung is a very hard job,

You can factory restaure it with the odin tool (windows)
