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.

[TechLeaks]The upcoming OnePlus handset’s codename leaked

OnePlus 3T

Rumors and leaks surrounding OnePlus’s upcoming flagship smartphone are starting to make up. The latest leak comes from the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and appears to show that the next handset is codenamed A5000. If we see through the company’s history, this would hint that the next device will be called the OnePlus 5…

Previously OnePlus devices were internally named A0001, A2000, and A3000. These lined up with the OnePlus One, 2, and 3 so it is safe to assume that A5000 is indeed going to be the OnePlus 5.

But why would OnePlus skip the number four and jump right to five? Well, OnePlus is a company based in China and in the Chinese language, the word for four resembles the word for death. While this isn’t a confirmed reason, it would make sense for the company to avoid the number, much like many other Chinese companies do. Similar to number 13 from western countries.

Besides its internal codename, we don’t know much about OnePlus’s upcoming flagship other than some of the radio frequencies that will work with the smartphone. One thing that we are hoping for is a better software experience with less touch latency than what we’ve noticed on the OnePlus 3/3T.
