I use Philz...Following the guide it was not working, but after reading DroidFanJL post I have made it working fine.
By the way, if i go to twrp and reboot system, it says it need to fix permissions everytime because it can't find super su and busybox, but they are installed and working fine (already tested)
And, if i do a full compressed backup of my entire system it creates a folder with about 20-30MB of files, but in twrp it says it's gonna take about 5GB, what's wrong with this recovery?
Can i switch to CWM or Philz?
hmm... i have a SM-t310, with KitKat 4.4.2 on it. Performed all the steps in post one... First time I did the root via the TWRP Reboot>System... used Root Checker and it said it said Root Access=no access. Tried rooting via the SD Card. Again everything seemed to go fine, but again Root Checker and it said it said Root Access=no access
any idea what could be up?
On my TAB 3 ( SM-T311) running on 4.4.2 stock firmware( unrooted), I flashed twrp recovery by odin, successful!.
But then in recovery mode when I click on reboot and then on system, it asked to root my device. A superuser app was installed .
I tried to run that app but it says that my device in not rooted fully and I verified it with root checker.
App offered me two chices to root my device either google play( updating the super user app) or twrp, I choosed to go with play and I updated to supersu app.
But not rooted yet!
SuperSu app says:
"There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSu cannot install it. There is a problem!
If you just upgraded to Android 4.3, you need to manally re-root - consult the relevant forums for your device!"
What should I do now?
Should I try to root by odin?
If so , do I need to unstall SuperSu? Please help.
This worked great. Took me forever to get a working download of the stock US version, which to my knowledge Samsung never released on its site - (Cellular South XAR from Sammobile finally downloaded). Towelroot wouldn't work, but this one did. Thanks.This thread is for Android 4.2.2 but will not work with Android 4.4.2
I successfully rooted with this:
Then Installed custom recovery,
My model # is: SM-T3100ZWYXAR
