You flash this at your own risk. Please ensure you have the stock ROM to hand downloaded from SAMMOBILE in case of problems. This will trip the knox counter.

NOTE: ON ANDROID 5.1.1> DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.



*****INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:*****


Flash with ODIN in the AP slot.

1. Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
(Hold POWER + VOL DOWN + VOL UP)
2. Load the file below into the AP slot and hit start.
twrp_3.2.3-1_sm-a605_141218
3. After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately force reboot to recovery. Do NOT let the device boot to the OS.
You should now see TWRP recovery.
4. Flash the RMM bypass zip

NOTE: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE STEPS ABOVE IMPLICITLY WILL RESULT IN STOCK RECOVERY REPLACING TWRP AT FIRST BOOT.

5. Reboot to TWRP (Do not boot to the OS yet)



6. Move on to root instructions below. This is a requirement to get the device to boot.


*****OREO ROOT INSTRUCTIONS:*****


1. Flash the Forced encryption disabler patch. This is only required if you wish to have full functionality in TWRP.
Flashing this will disable Samsung's forced encryption. Disabling encryption will allow TWRP to mount the data partition.
After flashing the patch it is necessary to *FORMAT* (not wipe) the /DATA partition using the FORMAT DATA button under the wipe options.
PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON INTERNAL STORAGE AND FACTORY RESET THE DEVICE, SO BACK UP ANYTHING YOU WISH TO KEEP.

2. To root I suggest installing Magisk as this is a currently supported project, SuperSu is no longer getting active development.

3. Enjoy your rooted device.


DEVICE TREE: soon


PLEASE DO *NOT* DIRECT LINK TO THESE FILES. PLEASE LINK TO THIS POST

Please note I don't own this device and spend a lot of my free time bringing these builds for you to use and benefit from.


FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED PLEASE.

I had in mind that my rekvari sees all partitions at once, it seems like without encryption, he also sees a memory card from me at once, already disassembled your rekari! Good job

I recommend all testers, to patch the boot.img with magisk from their own localized firmware. Download your firmware from samsungbay.

1. Flash the whole firmware, all included 5 files with odin.
2. extract from the AP_ file the boot.img.lz4 .
3. unpack the boot.img.lz4 with a command line tool. I ran into problems and not patchable boot.img with extracting with 7zip.
4. Install magisk manager app and go to install. Choose the before extracted boot.img from the original firmware. Magiskt will now patch the boot img and you will be able to flash it via odin.
------------------------------------------------------
5. after all that worked fine, flash the recovery with odin.

Now you should have a twrp recovery and boot into it. Format the data etc. at mentioned in the inital post.

Can I ask why you are suggesting that people patch the boot image with Magisk manager?
It's unnecessary. Just flash the Magisk zip with TWRP and you're done for root.

There's a good chance as the sources are the same for all models.
In my experience with other devices it will work without issue.

It's not strictly necessary to flash the patched boot image as Magisk may be able to patch the boot image. However not always which is why I provided it pre-patched.

Thanks @ashyx for your dedication !!!!!

At least this indeed confirms this device supports RMM.
In that case I should provide a link to the RMM patch here.
