Default [Q] Regarding Galaxy Note 8 Root

Hi guys,

I've made the contribution to Skipsoft, downloaded the Unifed Android Toolkit, and attempted to use it to root my Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, only to find that the toolkit only supports up to 4.2.2, not the 4.4.2 currently on my device. Can someone tell me when this package will be updated to support the later version? I'm posting here because I can't post in the pertinent Dev forum. Geez, what a disappointment!

Thanks.

Saferoot is the only way to go with Note 8.0 using 4.1.2 or 4.2.2... once you run it, the only thing that wont work is Samsung Book Hub. You can get book hub to function using RootCloak and Substrate. They run in background and do not interfere with Framework or any other app add-ons..

If you are looking to simply root the tablet, CF-Auto-Root is your best bet. I just tried it on my Note 8.0 stock 4.4.2 and it worked great.

I tried the CF Auto-root; it fails to root, so I can't install the newer supersu; I get the message that supersu stopped, and need to update it. Unfortunately, supersu requires root to update, so I have a catch-22. I'm stuck; can't achieve root with either the UAT or CF-Auto-root. Getting very fed up with Samsung's constant nagging about logging in to their lousy services, nor am I pleased with their privacy policy. All I want to do is get Titanium backup installed so I don't have to worry about Samsung digging through my personal information.

Thanks,
DDoutel

You can download from anywhere to update SuperSu.
