Before You Begin:The root utility we'll be utilizing today works by unlocking your device's bootloader. Which means that if your bootloader is not already unlocked, you will eventually lose all the data on your device and your warranty get to be void.
If your device is the one which can currently be rooted, and you're okay with the downsides or rooting, then the time has come to start. You'll need Windows (Laptop or computer) and reliable USB data cable connection to utilize this method.
Step 1: Enable 'OEM Unlocking'You'll need to enable the "Developer options" menu. Once you've done that, head to your phone's main Settings menu and open the Developer options submenu that you just enabled. From here, enable the "OEM unlock" option before proceeding.

Step 2: Boot into Download Mode & Connect to Your PC:Then, power your phone completely off. From here, press and hold the power, home, and volume down buttons simultaneously. This will take you to Samsung's "Download mode" menu where you'll need to press the volume up button to verify your choice. Once you've done that, connect your phone to your PC with a USB data cable.
Step 3: Download the Samsung USB Drivers:On your Windows PC now, head to the following link to grab a copy of the Samsung USB drivers. This is an EXE file, so just launch it, then take after the prompts to get the drivers installed on your system.
Step 4: Download & Extract CF Auto Root & Odin:Next, you'll need to grab a copy of CF Auto Root, which is the tool you'll be using to actually root your device. So from your Windows PC, head to one of the links below to grab a copy of the utility for your particular model.

Once you've taken care of that, extract the contents of the ZIP into a folder you can access easily, and leave this folder open.
Step 5: Run Odin as an Administrator:right-click the "Odin3-v3.10.6.exe" file that was extracted from the CF Auto Root ZIP, then choose "Run as administrator" This is an important step, because the root utility won't be able to run properly without administrator privileges.
Step 6: Root Your Phone:At this point, it's time to get down to business. From Odin's main menu, click the "AP" button in the middle of the screen, then use the following menu to select the CF Auto Root tar.md5 file from the ZIP you extracted earlier.
From here, wait a few seconds until the Log tab shows a message that says "Leave CS," then click the "Start" button to root your device. The entire root process will happen automatically, and when it's finished, your phone will reboot back into Android.
Step 7: Verify Root:When you get back up, your device should be fully rooted. To verify this, download an app called Root Checker from developer joeykrim.
Once you've installed the app, simply open it up and tap "Verify Root" From here, tap "Grant" when prompted to give the app Superuser access, and if everything went off without a hitch, you'll see a message saying "Congratulations! Root access is properly installed on this device!"
