    • You should boot into first boot into TWRP recovery. Or Else you will lose root access. Don’t Sideload Magisk. Copy the file before the process.

    • Press Volume Up+ Power Button to boot into TWRP, so that you can flash Magisk. Long Press power button to Turn off and Press Volume Up to Exit download mode.

      • I successfully installed the custom recovery and installed magical too but I started showing signature verification error during boot, It asked me to reset and wipe the phone which I already did, after successfully booting, it started showing in the notification panel “unauthorized actions have been detected, restart your device to undo any unauthorized changes” even after restarting, it keeps showing it. How do I fix it? I think it triggered the Knox too; it’s no longer working.

  2. hey there I was trying to root my phone with these steps, and I think I have lost my phones software and now my phone got stuck on boot mod and cant turning on, please tell me how I can reinstall my rom and my phone reuseable
    plz reply asap

    • No need to panic, Flash Stock Firmware using ODIN. You will get your device back. But, If you want to root again, Don’t wipe system data in Cache partition. I think you erased OS accidentally.

  3. hola la copia de seguridad me guarda la contraseas del wifi. me da susto de que me toque formatear el cel cuando lo rootee

    • Este método raíz no borrará los datos del usuario. Pero, es mejor hacer una copia de seguridad de su dispositivo móvil utilizando TWRP Recovery en el primer arranque.

  4. pls, my volume keys are not working in my Samsung galaxy j5 prime 2. what the other possible options I can use are?

  5. I went about doing as you asked as I tried to boot into recovery mode; however, the phone started flashing the Samsung logo and turning off and on. Please help, I don’t know what to here.

    • Avez-vous décoché le redémarrage automatique dans ODIN? Si vous ne pouvez pas démarrer dans le système d’exploitation, passez en mode de récupération en appuyant sur le bouton Volume en haut+, puis effacez les données de l’utilisateur. Ne pas supprimer les données du système.

    • Go to Settings>About>Build Number>Tap (Touch) on Build number 7 times. It will say, Now you are a Developer. Go to Settings>Developer Options.

  6. I have a j5 prime, and it is not working.
    Odin fails to install TWRP
    I have android 8.0.0
    kernel ver. Aug. 9, 2019
    Android security patch level August 1, 2019

  7. Hi, I followed your instructions and installed TWRP but didn’t manage to boot my phone into TWRP recovery mode, but it kind of automatically goes back to the standard android recovery mode. Can you help, please?

  8. Hello brother,
    My specs are:
    Android 8.0
    kernel ver. Aug. 9, 2019
    Android security patch level August 1, 2019
    But when trying to download via Odin, the twrp file you provided always throws the error: check fail-> device 1, binary 0, and the process fails.
    I am guessing there is some binary version related issue. Kindly point me in the right direction.

    • The real problem is your mobile detects the TWRP is not matching with your current firmware. Try with the latest version of ODIN. If the problem persist, try with Magisk only method.

  9. My experience as of 2020:
    My phone is an SM-G570M with Android Oreo 8.0, the latest version. I could only flash TWRP after downloading the newest version on5xelte; otherwise I was always getting a message saying that I was trying to flash an older version than my phone had installed. Then, I’ve been attempting to install Magisk without wiping my phone (didn’t want to lose my data), but people said that some encryption doesn’t allow TWRP to access any folders until you wipe all data. I could install Magisk from the SD card, but it corrupted something, and my phone asked for a factory reset when booted. Then it powered off and didn’t power on anymore; I had to flash stock rom again and try this process from the start. So, my advice to anyone trying this in 2020 is to make a backup and wipe all your data from TWRP.

    • Hola tengo el g570m dúos kernel 6 febrero 2020 patch seguridad de febrero 2020 binario 8 no encuentro como desbloquear el bootloader twrp y root me ayudas te agradecería mucho

      • El método puede admitir hasta Oreo independientemente de la actualización del parche de seguridad. Si tiene algún problema durante el proceso, puede comentar nuevamente.

  10. Hi,
    I tried to root my phone using those following steps and my twrp recovery passed in Odin, but when I got into custom recovery I couldn’t find the magisk rar in the internal storage I did install magisk rar before the rooting process and also wiped out the cache data, but my internal storage is showing 0mb data
    Could you please help me.

  11. After deleting the cache data, I cannot find on my internal storage while in TWRP. DO not reboot your system. Just simply download the on your PC and connect your phone via USB.

    Transfer the to your phone from your PC, and then install it from there.

  12. Hey dear, when I tried to use Odin, it failed and showed “SYSTEM REV CHECK FAIL DEVICE.”
    Then I read all of your answers and tried to install only magisk.
    but it shows ‘signature verification error.’
    what should I do?

  13. Bro, I have a Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (SM-G5700). I only found its TWRP file on a single website when I installed it through Odin and tried to enter the recovery mode; it displays recovery mode can’t found couldn’t open it. Then there is a whole download mode type menu in front of the Samsung logo. I also tried to install the file of SM-G570f, but it showed me the same error. Can u please tell me what the error how to fix it?
    Thank You

  14. I’m sorry, bro, I’m a noob. I just want to ask how do we know that the process has been completed? I have been waiting that so long time, but i didn’t see the Odin was running
