Can't seem to root Samsung A3

Hi,

Very new to rooting, hope someone can help.

I have tried to root my Samsung A3 2016 (A310F), which is running Android 7.0, using CF Auto Root (because my research told me it was the best option for newbies and would keep things simple).

I configured and downloaded the package from firmware.mobi, and made sure the settings on the phone were as required.

I have followed the readme exactly as written.

Odin log:

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..

My phone simply reboots into the normal mode after this process is complete (after about 30 seconds) and the phone is not rooted.

Root Checker has verified that the phone is not rooted.

What am I doing wrong?

Overall CF-Auto-Root generation script is broken on firmware.mobi

https:\\desktop.firmware.mobi\device:51\firmware:5282\download\t0.cfar\queue
(can not yet paste links directly in my post as a new user so I substituted / with \ in the above link)

Download queued

The file you requested is being generated.
Current status:

NOT APPLICABLE

Our servers only store files in their base format. If a file is requested in a different format or as part of a package, the download may need to be (re)generated. The result is cached for some time, but if you're seeing this message, it means a cached version was not available, and it needs to be recreated.

This page will refresh periodically, and the download will begin automatically once available.

hey I'm sorry for the vague description I'm a novice in rooting(I did it succesfully to other phones but never on a samsung phone)
I tried rooting samsung s7(sm-g930f) with cf auto-root,odin said pass and had the green button but when I looked on the phone it had a warning telling me I have to factory reset.
so I did.(it was already reset before so I didn't mind)
I don't think it went into recovery mode and did the all red android logo thing(I'm not sure I was looking at the computer screen and when I said pass it showed me the warning and factory reset message etc)
the phone is now without supersu and knox is tripped.
but now I get a warning all the time "unauthorized actions have been detected",and says I need to reset phone.
also I think I can't get ota updates anymore.
so I figured it messed up the recovery partition.
what I'm not sure is:
is the partition corrupt now
or the modified recovery is just waiting for me to go into recovery mode to root and flash stock recovery
I'm not really sure how cf auto-root works
I'm afraid if I go into recovery mode and it's all messed up I get stuck in some screen or bootloop and make the all thing worse
I will really appreciate someone to give me some more insight into this issue

CFautoroot is now obsolete you need to use Magisk.

Well the phone is pretty old so i figured the tools for it might be obselete now.
And i wasnt really looking for instructions of how to root again.
i want to understand the technicality of what went wrong so i can fix it and get it back to normal working order.
Thanks in advanced if anyone here as more in depth knowledge about it

Irrespective of how old the device is I'm guessing it's running Oreo and that's all that matters.
CFautoroot does not support Oreo plain and simple.
SuperSU died and along with it cf_autoroot when Oreo was introduced.
CF-autoroot or supersu do not support the new securities imposed in Oreo.

Also for your info I have plenty of in depth knowledge of the workings of CFautoroot (aka supersu).

If you want to get back to a working device restore the stock boot image. If you want root then install Magisk via twrp.
If you don't want to use twrp then use the boot image patching method via Magisk manager.

thank you very much as I said I don't have much experience with the Samsung mechanisms in work.
yes it is oreo and that is probably why it didn't work.
il flash a clean boot image and I hope that will get it back to normal
thanks again for the insight on what went wrong

    This is the discussion thread for firmware.mobi.

    This site replaces my old central CF-Auto-Root repository, and aside from letting you create and download CFARs, also lets you download stock boot and recovery images for many firmwares and view all sorts of information about them.

    Thanks. :cowboy:

    This is awesome!! Thanks for the hard work it's just amazing. I've been checking it out and I'm getting a hot linking disabled error. And clicking on the following link does nothing. Am I doing something wrong?? Trying to configure a c.f. root package for my sm-g950w. Any ideas guys??

    Try using Chrome or Firefox. Seems to be an issue with IE/Edge. I'll check this out later.
