Root method for AOF8 / 5.1.1 for the SM-G530T THIS WILL TRIP KNOX. If you don't want to trip knox don't use this. If you do use it and whine you tripped knox because you didn't read ,we will all point and laugh at you.

Named it TrapKernel because well its not my normal HispAsian Kernel and I listened to a crap ton of Trap Music while doing it.

Thanks to @g.lewarne and his root method with his Unibase and Unikernel for the s6 , we finally have root after I ported it over to us. So be sure to thank him for his work.

What's included:
Auto installation of root and busy box
Kernel set to permissive
Otherwise stock

So here's the deal. Stupid simple.

1. Put Phone in Download mode
2. Open Odin
3. Connect Phone
4. Put Kernel in AP Slot
5.Flash it
6. Reboot and profit

Notes:
Download SuperSu from the Playstore. Its not included.
If it doesnt boot on first boot, pull the battery and reboot

Download

Do NOT mirror this link. Period.

TrapKernel AOF8



Special thanks to:
@g.lewarne for the obvious reason of being awesome and his root method for the s6.
@ajp87 for testing multiple tests
@Chainfire for SuperSU

Heres the source set to permissive for anyone that want to fork it and build a kernel that'll allow root:

I just tried this and ODIN failed to flash. Is there some trick to make it go through?

Wait! You've made a kernel/root for the grand prime too?
Does it function the same way as the core prime?

if so, you're a godsend!
I've always wanted the grand prime (after i saw my sister taunting me while she took selfies and video with the device.)
I was able to root hers (Since it was the CricKet model) but i always wanted to get the grand (T-mobile version) and root it.
