    TWRP has finally arrived for Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Before you get too excited though TWRP for these device does require your Galaxy S8 to be bootloader unlocked. None of the US models have unlockable bootloaders so for now you still won't be able to install TWRP and then root on your S8 or S8+ in the US. For now this limits the method to Chinese and Hong Kong variants of the device. If you have managed to acquire a bootloader unlockable Galaxy S8 head to the link below for the TWRP download.

    Hey Me..

    Did you mean to ask why the "Exynos" variants aren't sold in the US carrier phones?
