    I feel just like the S8 plus there are so many tweaks for the phone without root not something I'd run on the phone ...

    I totally agree. I quit rooting years ago, though I am tempted to try it again on an old phone. the only thing you cannot do yet without rooting is uninstalling the bloatware.

    you can disable most of it but there are some that you cannot for whatever reason. if given the choice, I would rather remove it.

    I rooted my Droid Turbo. Last Phone I rooted, I dont want to risk losing Samsung Pay. I use it all the Time. The Note 8 is Blistering Fast. unlike my Previous Phones it something else. I migrated all my apps from my Z Force and Note 5 and its unphased compared to my Z Force.

    You'll play hell rooting a Samsung phone. Knox will kill you every time. That's why i have a Nexus 6, as a rooting machine and a back-up. I'll never get 8.1.0 on my Galaxy S7 Edge, so i put it on my N6. Probably trade in my S7 Edge for the Note 9, but i'll be keeping my N6.:p

    there are ways to root without killing knox but you have to know what you are doing and have the ability to follow instructions to a "t"

    Those "ways" that you are talking about only give you semi-root. Some apps won't pass Safety Net, and your phone will only charge up to 80%. It's true that it doesn't trip the Knox Flag, but you can still see Knox's fine hand in screwing up your phone. If XDA can't get you true root, then it doesn't exist. Sorry. :(

    root is root, no such thing as a semi-root. you take the good with the bad.

    I take it all the way, or not at all. Too many problems, and too easy to brick the phone and have to buy a new one. Knox was purposely built into the phone in order to discourage rooters. It worked on me.:(
