Hi,

This rooting method is for Samsung SM-J200F.

THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY AND WILL DEFINITELY TRIP YOUR KNOX

First of all Go to Settings>About Device and tap on Build Number 5-7 times.
Developer option will appear in Settings, open it.
Enable OEM-Unlock and enter your PIN (if you have any).

Download latest Odin
http://odindownload.com/SamsungOdin/

then download the attached file

Click on AP and select recovery.tar.md5 which you extracted.
Shut Down your Phone, After that Press VOLUME DOWN+HOME+POWER BUTTON
Press VOLUME UP to continue, Odin Mode will open.
Then connect your phone with PC

Press Start to flash the Recovery
When Recovery is successfully flashed you phone will Reboot.
Now to enter recovery Press VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER BUTTON

TWRP will Open.
Then Download Latest SuperSU

Twrp file doesnt work. It does not extract.

---------- Post added at 06:51 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:47 AM ----------

I found twrp in another site.
I flashed it using odin3.
But when I went to recovery, after many seconds of work, the showed me the stock recovery.!!!
What's the problem?

Method 1 :- keep unlock your phone. Don't use any security (pattern,pin,password) wile rooting

Method 2 :- goto settings ➡️ developer option ➡️ OEM unlock (turn off it)

Method 3 :- remove your gmail accounts

:) :) :)
Method 2 should in fact be, enable OEM UNLOCK not turn it off.

twrp overwritten

In my case, when installing twrp from stock rom, twrp would get rolled back/overwritten. This explains why:

Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use Google to find the proper key combo to enter recovery. After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

So, I unchecked automatic restart in Odin, after the twrp flash completed, I turned the phone off (removed battery), then started the phone in bootloader mode.
