Samsung Galaxy J320FN Rooting

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to root the Galaxy SM-J320FN phone (Using the latest Aug 2016 software LMY47.J320FNXXU0APH1 : Patch Level 1 August 2016)

I have tried the TowelRoot, FramaRoot, Iroot, Kingoroot and Kingroot APK's and Windows versions to no avail?

I also tried the process from NeedRom -  http://www.needrom.com/download/root-for-galax-j36-sm-j320fn/  - which caused a Boot Loop which needed the factory reset and ROM to be re-flashed to bring it back to life

Thanks in advance!

I have been shown a way to install TWRP & SuperSU from this site: (Many thanks to Sparko612 who provided the info & links)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/general/help/samsung-galaxy-j3-sm-j320fn-how-to-root-t3369511/page2#post68596176

Basically, download TWRP & SuperSU from these links & flash using Odin:

TWRP http://www.mediafire.com/download/bl...-J320F.tar.tar
root file http://www.mediafire.com/download/cp...0630161323.zip

The TWRP will be in Russian, but if you click on the right-hand side grey box then you can change to English.

First thing to do is run a Nandroid back-up and once completed copy the SuperSU file to the phone/Ext SD card and flash this (I flashed it twice, as the first attempt just made the phone constantty reboot after the logo.

When rebooting the system from recovery DO NOT select try to root as it might cause problems

Next you can flash thexPosed Lollipop 5.11 from here :  the framework for xposed lollipop 5.1.1 http://www.mediafire.com/download/hx...m-20151217.zip
