[ 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 ] Motorola Handsets Getting Android Oreo Updates


Android 8.0 Oreo has been out in the wild for a hot minute now, and following the OS’s release back in August, we’ve quickly been learning which phones will be updated to the new firmware and which ones won’t.

As for the good news, there are still quite a few handsets that’ll be updated to Oreo. They include:
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus
  • Moto G5S
  • Moto G5S Plus
  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Moto Z Play
Interestingly enough, there’s no mention of the Moto E4 or E4 Plus that came out earlier this year. We’re inclined to believe that these two devices will be updated to 8.0 Oreo at one point or another considering how new they are, but it is odd that Motorola omitted them from its support page.
