WHAT YOU WILL NEED > > > Chainfire's CF-AutoRoot & RECOVERY TWRP . Also, just in case, Samsung USB Drivers.

-> ROM N900TUVUFOB6 Can be downloaded from [HERE] (SamMobile)

INSTALLING ROM . . .

STEP -3 -> Make sure you have already the Samsung USB Drivers installed; if not... Download them from the link above and install them.

STEP -2 -> Unzip the ROM (file name N900TUVUFOB6_N900TTMBFOB6_TMB.zip) & the CF-ROOT File (CF-Auto-Root-hltetmo-hltetmo-smn900t.zip)

STEP -1 -> You will now have a program called Odin3 v3.07.exe... Run the program as Administrator (Right click, run as administrator) Once you open Odin3 v3.07.exe you will have a screen with only 2 checkmarks on it:



ON THE PHONE -> Then Turn OFF Your Phone and Turn it back ON by pressing POWER + VOLUME DOWN + HOME button together at the same time. A Warning Screen will come up; press Volume Up button to enter DOWNLOAD MODE.

> > > NOW CONNECT PHONE TO PC VIA USB < < <

STEP 0 -> Make sure your program looks like the picture above... Now click on PDA and browse for the file N900TUVUFOB6_N900TTMBFOB6_N900TUVUFOB6_HOME.tar.md 5.

>>> Now, If you are a 100% sure that your program looks like the picture above... Click START

READ THIS!!!
*** IMPORTANT NOTE #1:


AFTER THE ROM IS FLASHED, THE PHONE WILL REBOOT AND YOU WILL SEE A BLUE BAR FOR A FEW SECONDS, AFTER THIS BLUE BAR DISAPPEARS, THE PHONE WILL REBOOT AGAIN; AT THIS MOMENT YOU MAY WANT TO BE READY AND BE ALREADY PRESSING VOLUME DOWN + HOME BUTTONS. THE IDEA BEHIND THIS, IS TO CATCH DOWNLOAD MODE BEFORE THE OS (LOLLIPOP) ACTUALLY BOOTS FOR THE FIRST TIME. THIS WILL SOLVE THE CF-AUTO-ROOT OR TWRP NOT STICKING REPORTED BY SOME USERS





-> The program will flash the ROM for a few moments then the phone will reboot by itself...
-> You now have New LOLLIPOP v5 TMO ROM, as soon as you finish looking at the new ROM, TURN OFF PHONE AGAIN > > > CONTINUE . . .

ROOTING LOLLIPOP v5 N900TUVUFOB6 ROM . . . (N900TUVUFOB6)

STEP 1 -> Run Odin3 v3.07.exe as Administrator (Right click, run as administrator) Once you open Odin3 v3.07.exe you will have a screen with only 2 checkmarks on it:

>>> Now, If you are a 100% sure that your program looks like the picture above... Click START

READ THIS!!!

-> The program will flash the Chainfire's CF-AutoRoot for a few seconds then the phone will reboot by itself, you will see a RED ANDROID... and the phone will boot into Android again...

-> Android is Rooted,...!*! You now have a Rooted LOLLIPOP v5 TMO ROM.

STEP 3 Now, TURN OFF PHONE AGAIN > > > DOWNLOAD MODE AGAIN (by pressing POWER + VOLUME DOWN + HOME button together at the same time. A Warning Screen will come up; press Volume Up button to enter DOWNLOAD MODE)
