As always from Samsung, the most recent protected device against Root is J6+ (SM-J610F) & J4+ (SM-J415F)
In these devices Samsung provides an compressed kernel image into the boot image with gzip compressing method
preventing any patches that the Root needs to do to be able to get full permissions on the device.

The currently security exists in that kernel is defex protection that prevent a lot of applications to get Root access like [Titanium backup, ES File Explorer, FRep.....etc] and all other process that needs to run as Root in a custom paths.

In other devices we can bypass that security by just hexpatch directly to the kernel image but in this device the kernel image is compressed with gzip and has some restrictions prevent us from normal decompressing-recompressing.

So until get and add final solution to Magisk releases I compiled the stock kernel AS IS just disabled that security and Rooted with Magisk 17.3,
to make it a temporarily solution to fully Root that device.

The kernel doesn't have any features only disabled the security So it is Full stock with Root.

Ended up like this....................


You have a problem with your recovery partition, Flash the J610FXXU1ARJ3 firmware to your device (AP & BL & CP & CSC) then reflash the rooted boot

OK, this is patched kernel.
Does it contain TWRP/CWM recovery?

If not, where to get TWROP recovery for J6+.

In my opinion, it's temporary root method.

Lost root after couple of days (don't know why or how).
Repeated process again and rooted device.

Combination Rom is a little bit older version 'J610FXXU1ARI3', while you need 'J610FXXU1ARJ3' to work.
I made the same mistake and device did not work.

NOTE: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE FIRST.

1- Find and install stock rom 'J610FXXU1ARJ3' for your region.
2- Setup your device (do not use pattern or pin or password or fingerprint lock yet)
3- After that, flash this patched boot image in odin 'AP' mode.
4- Your device might ask you to reset (it's normal)
5- Lastly, your device might gonna take a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy long time to start android os.
6- Setup your device, run magisk app, update it to full manager (if you want to).
7- Install from magisk, choose 'Recommended' option.
8- Check root.

Note: I did a restart and lost root (might be some other reason, possibly), do not let your device battery out.

Wolla, I've successfully rooted my SM-J610F.

NOTE: This process may be variant, but that's how i rooted mine. All you need is to study blogs carefully, because there might be some key points, that you might have ignored. Google, Google again, again and again and again again......................., until you find, you are looking for and please DO NOT BLAME ANYONE, if your device is bricked or lost or burnt or died or crashed or whatever.

hi, OEM lock/unlcok setting can be found under the developer options, if it lock and you want to unlock it, it will asked to do a hard reset on your device including the internal storage, so you need to back up everything before you want to proceed.

hi @AndroDef, can you mod and overclock this kernel cpu & gpu freq and add touch boost feature? j6+ is so laggy for playing games, for comparison I have an old samsung a3 2016 that can run games more smooth running LOS 14.1 with modded kernel (it enables the 8 cores and the gpu freq can reach max at 800mhz)
