Why TWRP ? Why not some rooted firmware which keeps warranty safe ?

hi guys,

has anyone successfully rooted 5.1.1 with this method?

I'm using e500h, followed all the steps and stucked at Samsung logo after installing supersu.zip.

what I did...
1. Upgraded to 5.1.1 via odin using India firmware.
2. Flashed twrp, no problem found.
3. Flashed the latest stable supersu, stucked at Samsung logo.
4. Flashed the lastest beta supersu, same problem.

Even if I installed supersu via Play, it said the phone must be rooted manually first.

Now I'm back to kitkat

Any idea guys?

I too had that problem. I flashed 5.x and 4.4.2 back and forth few times, wiped/formated everything and factory reset (while you have 5.x and TWRP) including hard reset. For some reason, it went ok and I'm able to use Kitkat again.

I think it may not be the proper way to do it. I just tried every possible thing that I can think of.

I also tried Kingroot, not working. Bummer!

Its not recovery fault its SAMSUNG. normal root flash will not work on stock anyhow and even chainfire knows it. this is the same issue were S6 Edge suffered too. its security which checks any modification in system partition on boot and if found it wont allow system to boot thus causing bootloop and at no way recovery is at fault!
