Root j120h/ds

for some reasons that i dont know there are different variants of j1 2016, mine is j120h which is a spreadtrum sc7727se phone while others have j120f exynos soc, so this tut only works for j120h models of j1 2016

Req TWRP, ODIN, SAMSUNG DRIVERS, FLASHABLE SUPERSU, OEM UNLOCK ENABLED ON DEVELOPER OPTIONS.

DOWNLOAD

UPDATE: SUPERSU INSIDE FILE WONT WORK AND WILL CAUSE BOOTLOOPs ON DEVICES WITH UPDATED SELINUX SECURITY PATCH
USE THIS FLASHABLE SU.


http://download.chainfire.eu/969/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.76-20160630161323.zip

always use chainfire's latest flashable zip

the file above includes flashable supersu.zip odin 3.11 and TWRP (do not extract supersu zip)

1. DOWNLOAD TWRP AND ODIN AND SUPERSU.ZIP. extract all except supersu.zip do not extract supersu.zip
(NOTE PUT SUPERSU.ZIP INSIDE INTERNAL STORAGE THIS TWRP BUILD DOES NOT DETECT EXTERNAL MMC, so anything you flash in the future make sure its in internal storage

1. install samsung drivers
2. open odin click AP then select TWRP file
3. Click options UNCHECK auto restart
4. Put phone in odin mode Volume down + Home key + power key
5. there will be a warning press volume up to continue
6. insert usb cable wait for drivers to finis installing
7. check status (see blue box above that means phone is ready)
8. Click Start to start flashing
9. after flash there will be a green sign saying pass
10. remove usb cable DO NOT restart phone. Restarting phone will revert recovery back to stock.
11. After ypu finished flashing you cannot power off the device via power button so remove battery then insert. do not turn it on.
12. then go to recovery mode by pressing volume up + homekey + power on,
13 flash supersu.zip should be inside internal storage preferably on root directory of internal storage
14. reboot and wait, 1st boot will take time.
15. congratulations you are now rooted and warranty is now void.
16. Odin problem? search on google about issues on stuck at pit file mapping.
17. phone not detected? download and install smartswitch from samsung.com run it then connect phone if detected, go back to odin.

Note: Please always enable oem unlock at all times when you have twrp installed. i tried resetting my phone once and ended up with binary blocked and cannot boot up
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for whatever you do to your phone

if you encounter bootloops while tinkering with your phone just search for official firmware from reputable sites and flash it thru odin. Google is your friend
