I keep reading over and over and over the same questions: HOW CAN THIS NOTE 8 BE ROOTED?
It is very simple actually and takes a few seconds and ZERO flashing. I have read super complicated methods and this one I present to you below is BY FAR the absolute easiest. I have done this myself on dozens of Note 8's. It works perfectly every single time.
1. Download and install "SafeRoot".
2. Unpack it.
3. Run "install.bat".
4. Reboot Note when script finishes.
ENJOY FULL ROOT after a few seconds of time.
I hope this helps the many people I have read about asking how to root this nice little device.
Click thanks if this helps you out! (maybe this will be a "sticky" post so many can be helped)
