Hi, I have a SM-A300F and I have been searching high and low for root guides/custom recovery for my device but not one seem to have develop anything yet for the SM-A300F or any other Samsung Galaxy A series(A3,A5,A7)
So is there any root this this specific firmware?Please

Product code SER
PDA A300FXXU1BOD5
CSC A300FOXY1BOD5

If there isnt any root/custom rcvry made for this device can someone make one please?
Or perhaps a specific guide on how to build one. Thanks in advance!!:

EDIT(SOLVED): Okay thanks to @Reyzeer for helping me out with rooting my device.

Steps

  • Root Galaxy A300F 5.0.2
  • Download the official 5.0.2 Firmware
  • Rename the official 5.0.2 Firmware file extension from .tar.md5 to .tar
  • Open it with WinRar
  • Extract recovery.img and boot.img
  • Download Flashify in your android device
  • Copy recovery.img and boot.img to your phone (I edited this line to fix the recovery bootloop problem)
  • then flash recovery.img using flashify
  • then flash bootimg using flashify


Note: Don't restart/power off after rooting your 5.0.2 device, Just flash the recovery using flashify

Tried using 4.4.4 Root (CF-Auto Root) .. successful at first boot. But when you restart/power off. It won't turn on..

Only works in Download Mode .. No recovery mode

Yeah. I tried that on my SM-A300F too but if your device isnt running on the same built id*KTU84P.A300FXXU1ANL1 then it wouldn't work. I just hope CF will update the new CF-Auto root.

Sent from my SM-A300F using XDA Free mobile app
