Thank you very much. I'd love to try that i'm afraid to mess up.... phone is not mine but my company's....

@Nekrofiili said rooting broke his camera and speaker, do you think it's because of wrong kernel?

Confirmed working on j530f/DS (dual sim)

Thank you!

Which method did you use? The process from the main post or the one posted by @ksa616 on flashing the kernel?

What version of stock ROM should already be installed for this Rooting instructions to work? I am currently using PDA J530FXWU2AQL4 and CSC J530FOJV2AQL1. Will this work?

I experienced the same problem, so I had to re-install the stock firmware via Odin. Just look for the stock firmware on the internet (for your phone- mine is J530F), then download Odin and flash it. The process is straightforward and available on the internet, especially YouTube.

Good luck.

Problem with recovery, now Boot-loop

Followed the instructions
When I tried to backup the phone, the storage spaces were all 0MB.
Then obtained error:
' Could not mount /data and unable to find crypto footer'

Now phone is stuck on bootloop.

On j530F sometimes it has mount so you have to reboot recovery after some actions. At least for me
