[ How to ?? ] Root the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Exynos Variant

We’re starting to see more and more people getting their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, so for those of you looking for some help in rooting your device, XDA Recognized Developer dr.ketan has made a simple step-by-step guide for you. This guide will walk you through how to gain root access to the device using SuperSU. The developer also promises to provide an EFS backup tool so you can save the important data in this partition.
Once your device is rooted, you open up the device to some interesting modifications such as flashing the popular audio mod called Viper4Android. Of course, there are already a ton of things you can do without root on Samsung devices such as blocking ads and disabling bloatware, but having root access is an added benefit nonetheless.

[Android Tutorial] Press back button twice to exit app

Few Apps have the feature to close the app when back button is pressed twice. This feature comes handy when there is accidental press of back button. This feature allows the user to close the app only when back button is pressed twice.

Today we will be showing you how to implement this on your own app.

We will be using a custom toast to demonstrate this features. But you may want to try this on default toast settings too.

We will be using this on the MainActivity.java file but you may want to use accordingly to any class file. Preferred is the home activity file.

Step 1 Create a variable of integer type and assign its value to 0.
Ex - int count = 0;
Step 2 Create a method onBackPressed() to  override the default back settings.

Paste the following code -

public void onBackPressed()
{
    if(count == 1)
    {
        count=0;
        finish();
    }
    else    {
        
        LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater();
        View layout = inflater.inflate(R.layout.custom_toast,
                (ViewGroup) findViewById(R.id.custom_toast_container));

        TextView text = (TextView) layout.findViewById(R.id.text);
        text.setText("Press Back again to Exit");

        final Toast toast = new Toast(getApplicationContext());
        toast.setGravity(Gravity.BOTTOM, 0, 0);
        toast.setDuration(Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
        toast.setView(layout);
        toast.show();
        Handler handler = new Handler();
        handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {
            @Override            public void run() {
                toast.cancel();
            }
        }, 800);
        count++;
    }

    return;
}



Step 3 Create a new .xml file named custom_toast.xml inside the res/layout/ directory.
Paste the following code - 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"    android:id="@+id/custom_toast_container"    android:orientation="horizontal"    android:layout_width="fill_parent"    android:layout_height="fill_parent"    android:padding="8dp"    android:background="#FFF"    >
    <ImageView        android:layout_width="wrap_content"        android:layout_height="wrap_content"        android:layout_marginRight="8dp"        tools:ignore="ContentDescription,RtlHardcoded" />
    <TextView android:id="@+id/text"        android:layout_width="wrap_content"        android:layout_height="wrap_content"        android:textColor="#FF4C4C"        />
</LinearLayout>


Step 4 Now run the app it should work perfectly.
Step 5 Enjoy! profit.
