If you install other Custom ROMs, they are already optimized. If you accidentally bricked your mobile during the process, you can flash J7 Prime Stock firmware.

    • Did you Wipe System in Cache? Flash firmware again using ODIN. App data will be restored using your Google Account.

  1. Hi, I tried several times to follow the steps outlined, but, sadly device my fails to be rooted.
    Odin shows that the TWRP is ‘PASSED,’ but, during the reboot into the recovery stage, always goes to the Andriod recovery and not the TWRP recovery.
    Any help here?
    Sorry. Am using a Samsung j7 prime. Sm-g610y. Android 7. Nougat.

    • Both models have the same Exynos 7870 processor. As per the theory, It should work. But, We Didn’t test. I Don’t know. It may or may not work. Also, Most of the USA Devices are Bootloader locked. But Metro PCS is different. It has a flexible Bootloader. If it is your primary device, Don’t test this. If you are a developer, you know what to do.

    • In some regions, this same model called “On 7 2016”. Both have the same processors. Currently, we don’t have TWRP for this. We will soon update.

  2. Hello Dear, I want to ask do we need to untick “Auto Reboot” because, as I have seen on other blogs that they propose to untick it to stop auto reboot, but as per you, you said to tick it, is it typing mistake or what?

    Thank you!

    • Yes, You have to un-tick the Auto reboot in Rooting process. Thank you for mention this to us. We updated the article.

    • When you have rooted mobile flash the firmware using Flashify app, or Else you will lose root access.
      If you have a regular mobile, you can try with OTA, Samsung SmartSwitch, and ODIN.

  3. Well, OTA not possible anymore as I have tried rooting it.. I installed TWRP versions 3.1 to 3.2.3 and can’t get past it. TWRP could not “find” sd card as well as the OTG USB flash drive… cannot install SuperSU as per your guide here….. soooo I am lost…
    OTA, when I tried today – it says, “the OS on your device has been modified in an unauthorized way….”
    and…… yes, it is the first time for me to root device. 🙁

  4. Is updating rooted Samsung j7 prime (IMEI number is changed) to android 8.1 possible? I’m having problems with the camera. It cannot focus.

  5. Hi!
    Can you please help me? I have SM-G610F, I’ve done all of the steps. My ODIN already says, ‘PASS!’. But when I’m trying to reboot in recovery mode, it says ‘No Command.’ And I’ve waited a while. After that, it automatically opens my android’s default recovery mode, not the TWRP recovery mode. Can you please help me??

    *by the way, sorry for the bad English 🙁

    • Un-tick, the auto reboot, use volume down+power to exit download mode, and press volume up+power to boot into recovery.
