  1. hi, selva,

    In your step it was not said the installation of no-verity-opt-encrypt, do I need to install it cause I want to root it using magisk.

    • If you notice in the Installation section, We mentioned the no-verity-opt-encrypt file. You should flash this file before the first boot to avoid encryption issues.

      • Hai, Selva, you are doing a great job thank you I rooted my j7 pro from your steps after few days I got a message “Custom Binary Blocked By FRP Lock” after I flashed my official rom is there any solution for that? please mail me
        thank you.

          • Hi, selva,
            Is this method still works after the latest security updates? And the word flash is confusing me is it means that I should install all the files mentioned in the screenshot above? Pls respond and thank you for your understanding.

          • Yes, It will work with the latest patch updates. Flash means you have to install the mentioned files.

  2. Hi, Selva, I followed every step, but in the end, it said “Verification failed. Unable to restart your device. You need to reset your device.”

  3. Hi Selva,
    I followed your instructions, and after the .zip file flashed using TWRP, the phone is stuck at the Samsung flash screen. I tried relating again with the instructions above but the same situation.
    I use this stock rom:
    AP_J730FXXU6CSK6_CL16526088_QB27603051_REV00_user_low_ship_meta_OS9.tar.md5
    Any ideas?

    • Use Volume Down+ Power to exit download mode warning screen. Immediately press volume Up+Power to boot into recovery.

    • After TWRP flash, Press Volume Down+Power to exit download mode and Press Volume Up+Power to boot into recovery mode.

  4. Hey, when I go into twrp, it can’t mount the internal storage. And if I want to go back to my system, it gets stuck on the boot logo. I can perform a factory reset from TWRP, and after doing that, it can mount the internal storage; however, I can’t boot into my system. If I flash stock rom, TWRP gets replaced by stock recovery. So I’m stuck in a circle 🙁

  5. Hi, I tried this, but until the step, “Once the file is loaded into the device, reboot your device.” I.. turned the phone on, and now it is stuck on the boot screen for 15 mins. I tried rebooting, but it did not work. Any idea how to fix it? There’s no important data on the phone. It’s brand new, and I don’t want to brick it. Thank you!

    • P/S I have no experience in doing this at all. I also forgot to copy the RMM State Bypass, Magisk and no-verity-opt-encrypt into the phone. I realized that in the middle, so I decided to boot into the OS after installing TWRP. That lead to this situation. I would appreciate any help. It’s been 30 mins, and it’s still on the boot screen.

  6. UPDATE!!! I got it into Odin Download mode now, but I don’t know what to do. I want to quit rooting and revert everything to normal. What do I do?
