[ 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.

[Tech News] SuperSU Config allows you to change SuperSU’s Advanced Flashing options


When most people install SuperSU, they just flash it via TWRP and then reboot into Android. However, there are a few dozen of different setup options that could be configured at the time you flash the binary to your smartphone or tablet. So XDA Senior Moderator / Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire has put together what he calls SuperSU Config to work alongside the standard SuperSU installer. This includes options for dm-verity, force-encrypt, factory reset protection and more. This zip is to be flashed before you install SuperSU, and requires an ARM device, AROMA-compatible recovery or FlashFire, and access to the /data partition.
