Other variants of the device have had a root for a while but it was only this week that the root for the Boost/Virgin Mobile variant of the device was released. Today, we’re going to show you how to root the SM – J700P.
What You Need
- A Samsung Galaxy J7 with an unlocked bootloader. You can unlock it by enabling OEM Unlocking in Developer Options
- USB Debugging enabled on device
- CF – Auto Root ZIP. Download here
- Odin. Download here
- Samsung USB Drivers
Step 1: Download and extract the ZIP file to your computer. Install Odin and launch it.
Step 2: Next, you need to place your device into Download mode. To do it, first power off your phone. Press and hold Menu + Volume Down + Power Up until the device boots into download mode.
Step 3: Connect your phone to the computer. In Odin, click on the AP button. You’ll be presented with a file selection prompt. Select the tar file extracted in Step 1.
Step 4: Press Start.
Odin will now flash the root file to your device and then reboot it. Once your phone reboots, it will be in a rooted state.
