  1. Looks easy, but my problem is: developer options already activated, but no oem unlock bootloader available.

    It’s about the RMM lock I guess, but my phone is already for more than 168 hours online and switched on.

    Any solution for?

  2. My J7 Nxt SM-J701F is updated to android Pie. Your link says TWRP for oreo. In official TWRP site there is no any J7 core/nxt/j701 at all. Is there a way I can get the latest TWRP for J7 SM-J701?

    • Pie version Samsung devices Didn’t received any Unofficial and Official TWRP. You Can root your mobile using Magisk Patched Image. It may not work like TWRP method.

    • We need Official or Unofficial TWRP to support Pie Method. We should wait for the developers to do this.

  3. I Wiped My Phone by Accident, and Now It Won’t Boot Up No Os Installed: V So, I Need a Backup Please Send Me Clean One.

    • Vous pouvez utiliser la méthode Magisk. Mais, vous ne pouvez pas installer de ROM personnalisée. Si vous souhaitez utiliser uniquement les applications Root, c’est un meilleur choix.

  4. I have a galaxy j701F. I added the twrp width, Odin, before I copied the SuperSU file. Now it keeps restarting. With a blue screen and says installing system update. And it does not stop. How can I reset it so that I can access the file manager to copy the SuperSU files? Please send me an email response too. Thanks.

    • Boot into recovery using Volume Up+Home+Power Button. Clear Cache and Install SuperSu if you have TWRP. Or Else clear cache in stock recovery and flash TWRP again.
