I have found a way to root this version of the device. Easy as pie.

1. Factory Reset your device.

2. After reboot, Power OFF device.

3. Boot into Download Mode

HOLD VOL ( - ) & POWER & HOME BUTTON
RELEASE HOME BUTTON when letters appear
PRESS VOL (+ ) to ACCEPT TERMS

4. Flash the CF-AUTO-ROOT.tar.md5 using the ODIN that is provided.

5. Reboot and let CF do it's thing (my device restarted maybe 3x)

When phone finally boots, you should be fully ROOTED. I updated SU, and installed a few Apps that require ROOT and everything is smooth. No Force Close, nothing.

Odin + CF-Auto-ROot:

If you need to completely reflash your device the 1GB+ file for ODIN is available.
Google is your friend.



Is there a working Custom Recovery for these? I believe the recovery is the same across all the variants,
here is one from the G360PVPU2AOH1 SM-G360P Model:

Hope this helps someone, I am attempting a TWRP 2.8.0.1 build for this, although I am not sure I know what I am doing.

I used the s820l straight talk twrp 2.8.7....you can search developer Ardwill...my apologies i forgot the ending 2 numbers on his name....but search root deodex rom for your sm-g360p prevaile lte/ core and he has as have i on two prevail ltes booted thru odinbthe straight talk 820 s twrp port..flashes precompiled apos as well as zips to improve performance and even su....the rom has being rooted has a problem updating from settings but with twrp you can systemless root....pm me for both twrp and cfautoroot file...they are linked to my drive actually ....https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9Nvxp8BpgclellYTmtEMnd1ZzQ/view?usp=drive_web...thats twrp found working by Ardwill all credits go to him as i never would of had a custom recovery....and cfautoroot is universal ...dwnld the file named after coreprime....thats the only coreprime that actually flash...possibly since the twrp will not format data.....ive done all i can to give my way of having twrp and root...both phones still work and never looped...twrp only needs root after its flashed...but ask Ardwill or better yet look up his thread on his stock deodexed and prerooted rom...i run it on my cracked one and its just fine ...but i only used twrp then cf autoroot after i flashed recovery via odin and accepted latest update....so props to chainfire for his cfautoroot working across all versions of this non existent variant of the Sm-g360p. Always perform a wipe via twrp before flashing ne thing..dalvick and cache only tho....have fun doing all the exploits that kitkat 4.4.4 has ....latest uodate past smg360pvpaoj2 will not flash xposed nor can you update firnware...so i woudnt run the stock basemodel past apj2 since all you get is a securiry patch update..also i believe twrp will format if you do it properly...i made the mistake not the dev who was ballsy enough to flash a twrp buikt fir a diffrent carrier.

my bootloader isnt unlocked so i dont think i can flash twrp, i just installed the cf autoroot you posted last time and i cant find any other root for this device that actually works so if you could get that file for me that would rock

If ur root already theres no point
....i mean its not logical...what other root are u talking of?? Like a swich from supersu to another superuser.....i just ask
1. So u dont trash ur phones internals
2. What roots better than cf auto?? It comes with superuser.apk
3. One clicks are netorious for unreliability...why there are tools to clean them up anx install chainfires su binary over them...not vice versa for a reason...and Ardwills roms are prerooted with chainfire su...so u might wanna 4get about another root or w.e u were gettin ay
