The Galaxy Note 8 has been one of the most anticipated mobile of this year, especially since the complete failure of his predecessor, had suffered a “death” premature. the As is frequently found in the ‘flagships’ of Samsung, there are two versions depending on your processor that land in different markets, one with a chip from Qualcomm and the other with an Exynos of the house.
In this case, the version the protagonist is the one that has the Snapdragon 835 as a brain and that it is distributed in specific markets, such as north american (the Exynos version is the one considered international), and to which they can be rooting. Best of all is that** * * can be done without Samsung Knox to assume a nuisance**, but not everything is so positive.
The method is known as the SamFAIL, and allows rooting without Knox presents a problem. To do this, as shown in XDA, you have to flash modified files, both system firmware through ODIN. There is that warning, just in case, that this only works with the version Snapdragon, not Exynos.
As we said, Knox will not hinder this process, but yes it will affect SafetyNet Google, so that you would install applications that require you to pass this security filter. The other problem is that, when you use a modified system, the mobile will only be charged up to 80% of your battery, something that can mean the difference between getting by hairs at the end of the day, or that you turn off before you get home.
If, by some chance, you managed to make yourself with this version of the Note 8 and the drawbacks are not enough to frenarte, you’ll be able to follow the instructions of the thread from XDA. We do recommend, as always, is that make a backup of everything that you will want to keep just in case.
