First of all your phone ( J3 SM-J330FN) is not supported for this method. Please check the supported list first.
Secondly from where did you get the file "CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.zip". This file is for Galaxy S4.
Be cautious while rooting with the wrong files because it may permanently brick your device.. :-)


Hi Thomas.
Thanks for your reply.
Well, I'm commenting here because of the title of this post (if you know a better blog, please, che can you advice?).
Second: I've downloaded the file from here (https://desktop.firmware.mobi/device:1841/firmware:14510)
If you go to that page, you'll see that it is the page that exactly my firmware (both the model - SAMSUNG J3 2017 and the firmware). I've double checked in the Settings->Device informations.
As you can see at the bottom of that page you can download a full stock "official" firmware image AND a CF-Autoroot md5.
Actual they run a script that generates a CF-Autorooot MD5
I have to add, maybe, that I've tried other rooting options beforehand but all was vain (Kingo root and Towelroot).
After that I've tried the ChainFire approach but that also failed.
Thank you again for your suggestions.
Sorry that you are not able to root, but we only support the three models given here. Please find the site which lists your model. Also please check whether your phone is locked.

Hi.
I'm new to Android so please forgive my maybe trivial questions. I have a brand new J3 SM-J330FN. I think I've done all the steps correctly but when I use a Root checker it says that I'm not rooted.
This is what I've done:
-Downloaded a cr-auto-root image from here https://desktop.firmware.mobi/device:1841/firmware:14510/cfar? (CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.zip)
- Enabled Android developer tools
- Enabled USB debug mode (developer options)
- Enabled OEM Unlocking (developer options)
- Enabled download mode in device (power+voldown+home followed by volup)
- Started Odin
- plugged the device (usb) (Odin now says: "Added")
- Selected AP
- Selected the aforementioned md5 file
- Clicked start
- Download finished with message "success"
- The device has rebooted.

Everything seems to have run smoothly but when I check for root permission, Root checker says that I'm not rooted.
Am I missing something?

Thanks

Hi all, I've been able to get through most of these steps without issue until I try using Odin, I'm 90% positive it's my Bootloader, but I haven't found a reliable way to unlock it. I've got the universal drivers installed, I've booted the device in AMD/Bootloader mode and haven't been able to get it to work yet. Any advice or assistance would be much appreciated.

Model: sm-j327T (t-mobile)
Version: 7.0

You need to unlock your mobile before proceeding with the root. All carrier locked phones should be unlocked first. :-)

The J3 Prime (SM-J327T) has no OEM UNLOCK feature...

Please skip it and go on with the rest of the steps.

It still fails for (recovery)

It is because you didn't unlocked your bootloader In order to root first you need to unlock it. It is not the "OEM unlock" from settings menu. It is a process like rooting. Please find it from google and try the rooting again.
