TWRP recovery continues to thrive in a blistering way to be the most favorite choice of Android users. It is a widely-used software application to transform your Stock firmware into a more flexible and handier surface. However, it also involves some risks and you will lose some established features in the form of Samsung Health, Samsung Pass, Secure Folder, Samsung Pay, and Secret Mode, etc.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was introduced back in 2018. It was arguably one of the best flagship devices to date. The producer studded the device with a 6.4” Super AMOLED Always-on touch display, dual back, and dual front camera configurations.

When it comes to the processing department, it came with Exynos 9810 as well as Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC editions. The Android 8.1 Oreo was assigned to the software department along with the One UI 2.0 skin interface. With 6GB/128GB & 8GB/512GB storage options, 4000 mAh battery, multiple sensors, and color options, the handset seemed to destroy the market efficiently.

Now, let’s consider the main concern of how to root Galaxy Note 9 Exynos smartphone and then flashing TWRP recovery. The handset supports good third-party developer support, and it was eligible to grab the TWRP recovery and rooting process just 2 weeks after the official launch.
