[ 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.

[ How To ?? ] Customize Always On Display on Samsung Galaxy Note 8


How to customize Always On Display

To get started with customizing the Always On Display, head to Settings, Lock screen and security then Always On Display. Now let's see what's in there and what you can do with it. By default, you have six different main clock styles to choose from: digital clock, analog clock, world clock, calendar, image and edge clock. They're all pretty self-explanatory and have small previews of what they look like generally. You can download more Always On Display styles from Samsung Themes if these choices aren't to your liking.
  1. Tap the Always On Display style you want to use, and you'll launch into a customization screen where you can tweak different aspects of the screen.
    • The customization options differ based on which of the styles you're working from, but basically come down to the clock style, color and background.
    • With a few of the styles you'll also be able to tap on blank spots on the screen to add more information like a second clock or an image.
  2. To change different aspects of the screen, tap the buttons at the bottom of the editor to see the different options — swipe to the left to see extra options, if available.
  3. Once you're all tuned up just how you like it, tap Apply at the top of the screen.

  4. Now stay put in the Always On Display settings, because there are a few more changes you can make aside from the design.
    • By default, the phone is set to always show the Always On Display (I mean, it's right in the name!) but you don't have to keep it that way — you can set a schedule for when it is turned on.
  5. Tap the Show always toggle to turn it off, then tap Set schedule to choose when Always On Display is enabled.
    • For example you can only have it on during the working day, and off at night, to save battery.
  6. Scroll to the correct start time, then tap End and scroll to the correct end time and tap OK to set the schedule.

After a little back-and-forth tweaking things, you'll find a combination of styles and settings that work for you.
