[ 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.

[Mobiles] How to enter DFU Mode on your iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch



DFU mode is the final stage for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad troubleshooting ladder.

Whether you want to jailbreak, un-jailbreak, update from an expired beta, or need a solution when nothing else is working, Apple has a solution for you: Putting you iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode can be your final hope for success. It is similar to resetting your Samsung device with Odin.

The DFU mode puts the device into a state where it can still connect and communicate with iTunes on Windows or Mac, but it has no access to the boot loader or iOS. This allows your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to be restored from any state. DFU mode requires a bit of timing and can take practice to get right.

How to put your iPhone or iPad into DFU mode

  1. Plug in your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to your Mac or Windows PC.
  2. Make sure you have iTunes and it is running.
  3. Turn Off your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad if it isn't already.
  1. Press and hold down the On/Off button on the right side (iPhone 6 or later) or top (all other variants of iPhones, iPods, and iPads) of the device for 3 seconds.
  2. Swipe the slide to power off slider to the right.
  3. Press and hold down the On/Off button on the right side (iPhone 6 or later) or top (all other iPhones, iPods, and iPads) of your device for 3 seconds.
  4. Press and hold down the Home button on the front of your device while still holding down the On/Off button.
  5. Keep holding down both buttons down for 10 seconds. (If you see the Apple logo, you've held them too long and you should start again.)
  6. Let go of the On/Off Button but keep holding the Home button for about 5 seconds. (If you see the "Plug into iTunes" screen, then you've held it too long and will need to start all over again.)
  7. If the screen stays black, that's it! Your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad should now be in DFU mode.
  8. At this point, iTunes should show you an alert saying it's detected your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and will allow it to be restored.
  9. Note: If you see any logos on your device, you might be in Recovery Mode, but you're not in DFU mode. If Recovery Mode works, great. If not, try for DFU Mode again.

  7. Let go of the On/Off Button but keep holding the volume down button for about 5 seconds. (If you see the "Plug into iTunes" screen, then you've held it too long and will need to start again.)
