This tutorial for only those user, who recently updated their device with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean I317UCUBMK6 firmware. Cf-Auto-root is one of the easiest and fastest way to root Samsung devices, it does nothing but install and enable SuperSU on your system, so apps can gain root access. Rooting has lots of benefits, after rooting your device you can install lots free rooted app on your device, install Custom ROMS etc.


Your warranty is void if you follow the given instructions in this guide!!!!!


Make a Full Backup of your Android Apps, SMS, Contacts, Call Logs, Bookmarks. This one is one of the most important step that you have to follow, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps. For help on Backup and Restore check out the below mention guides.

Now you need to enable USB debugging mode. Without enabling USB debugging mode on your device you can’t start the root, Custom ROM or Unlock process.

Go to setting, General tab, Developers Options.
(If no developers options visible. Then go to About Device, then scroll down to Build number and click it 7-times to have the developer options come up)
If your device switched off during this process, it could damage or brick the device. Make sure that your Android battery is full charge or near about 50-70% battery level.
