The age-old tradition of rooting Samsung’s latest flagship continues. In this case, it’s the Galaxy Note8, and it took developers about a month. For some perspective, that’s much less time than we had to wait for root on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Based on this progression, I predict that the next Samsung flagship should be rooted just a bit before it is released. /s
The Note8 is rootable via XDA member me2151′s SamFAIL utility, and (as you’d expect) there are plenty of caveats.
