As far as I know it can not be rooted because the bootloader cannot be unlocked. Samsung removed the OEM unlock toggle from the developer settings in the phone.

My main question is (I'm not very knowledgeable here so please excuse me if this is a dumb question) if the OEM unlock toggle is just hidden or if it is actually removed completely.

If it's hidden, maybe it can be turned on still somehow.

Well, I think most people would want to keep Samsung pay, Knox, etc. Rooting is just not worth it for a Samsung flagship nowdays.

Don't use sam pay...if i really wanted to or needed to my galaxy watch will do it. Love some Viper audio, built in spam calling protection, Call rec etc. Its my phone...i require su permissions to really believe that.

Mobile OS development would be comparable to Laptop/Desktop OS development if it was never commonplace to lock users to a single nonadministrator mode only OS on all mobile devices ... It's like selling you a house that comes pre furnished but you're not allowed to change anything, like buy a new bed.
I payed over a $1000 for this mobile cpu and I should be able to do whatever I want with my own mobile even if I do want to destroy it.



I got $100 on it.



Maybe if people stopped selling all the privilege escalation bugs they find to Samsung then maybe we would actually have a development community for Snapdragon especially now that they're shutting down the Exynos SoC

Why give up so easy on the right to have 100% property rights over what I paid for?
Would you like to have someone else deciding for your life decisions? Welcome to communism. Been there, I'm out and don't wanna go back.
The issue is that ppl have a tendency to accept this fist in the mouth like something normal, thus accepting the normality of locked bootloader. What if many wouldn't want to buy locked bootloader? Utopia right?
A giant tech like samsung doesn't care about a small fraction of geeks who want this unlocked bootloader.
Still, one can only hope ...

I just wanted to update everyone on our progress, we have a

Grand Total of $1100

so far for an unlocked bootloader and root!!

Thank you all who have made a pledge for this bounty! I am also planning to start a petition on change.org to petition Samsung to allow our model to be bootloader unlocked! I will update my original post with details once I have finished writing it up. I just ask that everyone whose made a pledge to sign and share it on all your social media.

I am hoping XDA will see our progress and write main blog post about this forum post, to get the word out. [emoji1696]

In my opinion I believe we should have full right to products we buy and own. I paid $1200 out right for this phone, and feel like it really isn't mine because I'm being limited on what I can and can't do with something I paid for! I know many people feel my frustration.

Please share this in the mean time and spread the word!

Thanks again!!

    Hey everyone,

    I think I've mentioned this before, but can we all please be respectful and kind to one another. Regardless of who said what, when, to who, let's stay courteous to others and try to stay on topic. I understand this thread had been around for months, without any real relevant updates, but honestly it covers with the territory.

    We are all crossing our fingers and hoping for the same thing, arguing, being disrespectful, or condescending to one another is not going to make an exploit for this device happen any faster. Let's all stay professional and proper please. Thank you so much!

    Well if people know anyone on here we can get a team and unlock the bootloader/root I've been trying to find possible "bugs" but nothing at all its extremely hard because older tricks that people used are patched and I'm still running 9.0 on my note 10 and still nothing.... I dont want to update to 10.0 till people find a root method but its extremely hard now a days but with a team I feel like it could be done

    i been (what seems like) working alone for months n months now.. nit one person has messaged me or even indicated they were also trying lol

    im making headway on n960u today.. i can now write to system vendor and odm partitions on combo using my already posted n9 combo root and an olllld trick im surprised even works lol

    no negativity. but this thread will be nothing but hopes and dreams
