This guide will show you how to root the Samsung Galaxy S9 series devices easily. Like every other Phone, the rooting process in this particular Phone is also almost similar. To root the device, you first need to unlock the bootloader of any particular device. But what is different is the methods used to root them either by the official method or by the Magisk.
But the Samsung devices are a little difficult to root as these devices come up with non-unlockable bootloaders. So now it has become a huge task to perform this activity.
Tips To Root Galaxy S9/S9+/Note 9 Snapdragon Variants By Using Extreme Syndicate
The rooting method is known as the “Extreme Syndicate.” Now before you move on towards the instructions for rooting, you need to acquaint yourself with some bits and pieces of this method. Let us have a look at them:
- Primarily, this rooting method can be used on any of the Snapdragon Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note 9 and runs on the combination firmware based on the Android 8.1 Oreo.
- Next, the rooting is only possible with the Chainfire’s SuperSU system root instead of Magisk. So, therefore, you will not be able to pass Google’s Safety Net tests and will not use applications such as Pokemon Go, Google Play, and many others.
- This method also involves the flashing of the combination firmware on your Samsung Galaxy device, which will control the Phone’s battery charging to 80%.
- Lastly, the developers have already mentioned that the MTP connection, biometric security such as Fingerprint and Face Unlock, and front camera will not be in a working model. These problems are currently being worked on and might be fixed in the future release with the updates.
- This particular rooting method’s advantage is that the KNOX counter will not be tripped, which means that you will not lose the warranty, and applications like Secure Folder and Samsung Pay may still be working.
