Yes, they did.  All the eternal blessings God promises us in scripture are dependent on our progression from mortal to resurrected beings.

D&C 130:20–21 says, "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this
world, upon which all blessings are predicated— And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is
by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated
".

What law or laws did Adam and Eve obey to get their blessings before, during, and after the
fall?

What great blessings happened to Adam and Eve in the fall, as Gospel Principles says?

No great blessings comes from the fall, only the twin curses of endless physical and total spiritual death. The atonement of Christ miraculously reverses the everlasting curse of the fall and makes the blessings of eternal salvation available to all who are under the fall.

Do you deny the blessings of salvation that enable us to escape from the consequences of the fall are a good thing? Or would you rather have had God do nothing to reverse the deadly effects of the fall and just let the entire human race descend into an endless hell? This is what it seems you want. You seemingly refuse to admit that God was able to bring the marvelous blessings of eternal salvation in spite of the curse of the fall.

I don’t get it. Why don’t you ask God why he allowed the fall to take place if he foreknew it was going to happen? Do you think the perfect God made a mistake or do you think he he allowed it to happen for reasons that are impossible for you to fathom and understand. Either way, your argument is with God, not the Latter-Day Saints.

If you don’t presently comprehend why a perfect God would allow the fall to take place in spite of his infinite foreknowledge, don’t get all upset with the Latter-Day Saints just because we believe there must be some good and perfectly justifiable reason why he set up the possibility that it could happen and then just stood back and allowed it to happen.

All of them.
