Hello,

I hope someone can help me.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Folder (SM-G150NS, SM-G150N0):
- Android Lollipop 5.1.1
- OEM Unlock available via Developer settings.
- Model : SM-G150NS
- Build version : LMY47X.G150NSKSU1APK3
- I have access to Odin flashable firmware (via Sammobile)

This phone is almost 3 years old and yet I have not found any information about root solution for this phone.

While I am really skeptical about "one click root" solutions, I have tried KingoRoot but with no luck (displayed a bunch of popup, adverts and got stuck at 90%).
I have not tried OneClickRoot or KingRoot, if someone can confirm if safe. I will give a try.

This device seem pretty "standard" to me, I mean there is a lot of Samsung phone running 5.1.1 that can be rooted easily. I guess this one can also be...

The device is vulnerable to Dirty Cow vuln but it seems like we can't really do anything from there...
I saw this chinese website that have Odin rooted package : [Can't post it as I am new user]. But payment is needed. Looks like a scam to me

Has someone have any idea how I can root this device ? I will be very grateful for any help I can receive.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers

Edit: I will seriously buy you a beer if you can help me with this...

Download this custom recovery http://ge.tt/4cO5xGj2

Flash the custom recovery, get the 2.78 SR1 Supersu zip file, copy it to the phone and install it from custom recovery.

Hi gsmDabbler,

Great find! Successfully TWRP and rooted using your method
Thanks very much

For the record, here is the steps I have done :

TWRP Install :
1) Download custom recovery linked above (unofficial_twrp_3.0.2-r6_novel3gskt(G150NS).tar).
2) Turn off your phone and start it in "Download Mode".
3) Open ODIN, click 'AP' and select the recovery tar file downloaded previously.
4) Click 'Start' and you are done.

Root :

1) Dowload latest supersu.zip version (currently SR3-SuperSU-v2.79-SR3-20170114223742.zip).
2) Copy it to your phone memory.
3) Launch TWRP and install zip.

Edit: Beer sent as promised

Would this also work for the Samsung Galaxy Folder SM-G150NK? Just want to make sure I don't mess up my phone just because it has a different radio in it.

I want to buy the Samsung Galaxy Folder SM-G150N0 off eBay. But I want to root it and unlock bootloader so I can flash a custom ROM or Android Go 8.1.0. So if I buy it, can I send it to you and have you do what I need done? This is my email: [email protected]. Send me a message.
Edit: I will buy the beer.
