    I recently rooted my S8, and downloaded a mod/tweak that completely stuffed up my phone. I have not seen any videos/tutorials on how to fix this bootloop and haven't seen my problem anywhere else.
    When connected to my laptop via cable, it is on a constant bootloop and on the top of the screen says in red "Only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed". When not connected to anything, the phone stays on black screen, and when power button is pressed, it boots up and turns off straight away. I have tried everything i can to go into recovery mode, but it's just not possible, however i can only go to download mode, and thats it.
    Is there any way possible to factory reset my S8 using a computer? As doing it on the phone is just not possible.

    As long as you can get to download mode, you're okay. (I hope you keep your data backed up, though, because it;s gone.) See [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. If you need additional help, please register an account here so you can keep your posts in this thread.
