Galaxy J530F : twrp, root (magisk & supersu)

Tested on J5 pro 2017 (android 7) Galaxy SM-J530F, Exynos7870



Root using supersu

  • Boot to Twrp
  • Format Data partition using FORMAT DATA button under Wipe options. (Note: This will wipe the internal storage)
  • Check DATA is mountable.
  • Install SuperSU (if root is required)
  • Install boot image patch below.
  • Reboot

Root using Magisk

  • Flashed the stok ROM first.
  • Enable OEM and USB debugging
  • Flashed TWRP twrp_v3.1.1_SM-J530F with Odin3 v3.12.7 and disable Auto Reboot option.
  • Important: Reboot my phone holding Vol down, Home button, Power button AND when vibrate, Imminently pushed Vol up, Home button, Power button to go directly into TWRP.
  • Install Magisk-v14.0 (it fails, but just do it instead of installing SuperSU)
  • Boot my phone and restore al my apps from the play store include root checker. It has already root acces now 
  • Install MagiskManager-v5.3.0.apk and dowload inside this app and choose Update (recommended)
  • With MagiskManager you are now able to disable root checking apps like SnapChat from root access. So my Snapchat is still working now
