How to root Samsung Galaxy J7 – Summary

To root your phone, you simply need to flash a custom recovery image and then run the root exploit. The root exploit you will use in this method is CF Auto Root.  Once you root your phone, you can always unroot it later to take advantage of OTA updates.


For this tutorial to work, you will first need to install a custom recovery image. You can easily install TWRP recovery on any Samsung phone.

How to root Samsung Galaxy J7 – Step by step procedure

Step 1

Download CF Auto Root. You will need this root exploit to root Samsung Galaxy J7. Once you have downloaded the file, move it to your desktop.

Step 2

Connect your device with your PC. Use a USB cable to establish a connection.

Once the connection is established, move CF Auto Root zip file to your device. Don’t unzip this file.

Step 3

Now you are going to start flashing your phone so make sure it is charged above 50%. You don’t want to brick your phone only because you forgot to charge it before flashing it.

Restart your phone and go to recovery mode. Remember, this tutorial assumes that you have already installed TWRP or another custom recovery on your phone.

Once your device is flashed with CF Auto Root, reboot it. It should be rooted now

Step 4

In case your phone doesn’t come out of a boot loop after you flash CF Auto root, you need to wipe data and reset phone to factory settings from recovery. Additionally, you may have to wipe cache as well to get out of boot loop.

Repeat the procedure from step 1. Hopefully, there will be no boot loop this time.
