We thank XDA Developers- topjohnwu and ashyx (Who successfully tested this method). Without their hard work, We can’t make this method. It would help if you had a strong reason for rooting. Samsung already released Pie 9.0 and is already optimized. You have 2 GB of RAM to use daily apps without lag for years.
