  • Hi Max, I rooted my Note 8 followed your steps, but Magisk disappeared after 2 months, what could have happened? Do I need to go thru the process again? Many Thanks.

  • Followed this guide but I have couple problems. Twrp fails to mount partitions to backup and updating magisk breaks the app. What I was wondering was if I want to update magisk to use modules like YouTube vanced. Is it safe to download magisk v17+ and reflash the zip in twrp to update the app and daemon so the repo will show all the newer modules without breaking the root since I can't backup with twrp to try it out.

  • Hai, You didn't show that after root, do you able to press restart ?

    I tried to Root my Note 8 (android 8.0.0) and follow your tutorial. OEM Unlock is there so I activate it, and do my root, it done well.
    But after root, I open the Developer Option and the OEM Unlock is gone!
    Then when I restart/bootload it got soft brick (written only binaries…so on)

    Any advice? I need the phone to be able function even if I restart/ reboot right..
    Cause I already did it like 3 times, always same problem. After rooted the OEM Unlock option is gone. Please help

  • hi Max.. i have succesfully rooted my xenos galaxy note 8 N950F. it work but when i restarted my fone it just shows the logo.. and a red message ontop op screen.. " only oficial binarie are allowd to flash." When i unroot with the stock feimware.. Odin is continuously failing.. please help… ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  • trying to do this on my n950F without much success. Follow the steps to the letter, phone boots back up. Phone isn't rooted at all, trying to get back into recovery mode again doesn't work, forces a restart and get the OEM message on bootloader about only allowing official binaries forcing me to re-flash the original firmware to even turn the phone on. Just wondering if one of the small updates since this video was posted has caused a change or I'm just missing something?

  • Ok I rooted my note 8 I follow this method and it works no problem even install titanium grant it still works,but..i turn it off went back to recovery to backed up it would not let me because my sdcard and otg won't showed up, can you help me on this? Thanks!
