Root Samsung J7 Prime

Start by reading the precautions below.

  • When you root, you will lose your phone warranty.
  • Charge your phone battery to continue with this process. If you proceed with a low-battery phone, it might die on you during the rooting process. If that happens, your phone will be dead and it would be just like a brick.

  • Download Odin.

This should start the flashing process. Once it completes, you will see a prompt saying ‘PASS’. Disconnect your phone now and put it in Download mode again by pressing Power+Home+Volume Down buttons together.
