For those of you having trouble flashing stock firmwares on latest Oreo firmwares with Samsung Galaxy smartphones(most likely with newer Galaxy S8, S8 plus, Note 8, S9, and S9 Plus) and getting stuck at “sboot.bin.lz4”, this is most likely caused by using ODIN version older than v3.13.1. Samsung is using new lz4 compression on firmwares which means older ODIN are not able to decompress the files before flashing to your phone.
How to fix this error? Simply use the latest ODIN v3.13.1 or HIGHER, you can download v3.13.1 below:
