confused by your post

hi,
how does one add to the root file the img file? every time i have tried is says i need to be rooted… which i am not? can you advise the step by step to add the img file without root access to the root folder? maybe the file manager apk you used that we can also download and install and use?

I'll put up a link for the files needed . Recovery is for the j320f but it's working on mine no problem and I'm on j320fn. You have to flash recovery via odin and change language when you load it up because I think it's in Russian but not sure . I found all this on a website but can't remember where to now but anyway here you go for TWRP http://mega.nz/#!tBORFSBI
and for flash able root in recovery http://mega.nz/#!1ZFAWZDI
use Firefox to download from mega ok and if you have any trouble flash stock through odin, website for stock rom is sammobile

Oops I forgot to mention make sure to enable oem in developer options as well as usb debugging too plus it's for Android version 5.1.1 latest version hope this helps everyone

Thanks! - The first link says the file is no longer available and the second requires a decryption key, if you have any alternatives?
(I tried in Firefox and Chrome)

Trying it now and will report back for others - Thanks again!

Flashed the TWRP file using Odin and haven't bricked it so far - Any tips on how to change the language, as my Russian isn't great!?
Yes press it's the grey box on the right that has the languages

I'll find the xposed framework from which you can install for xposed but please create a nandroid backup before even rooting ok

All looking good so far. The TWRP flashed OK, and so did the Nandroid back up, so I am just trying the SuperSU install and the phone has rebooted about 6 times so far since the install, so I will keep it going a little longer and see what happens

I ended up re-flashing SuperSU a second time, as it was bootlooping for about 25 minutes and it went straight through this time after 1 reboot.

OK I'll try to find another supersu to flash ok

All good - The phone is now rooted and SuperSU installed (I haven't tried the Xposed installer yet, but will do tomorrow as off to bed now.

Many thanks for the advise & links... I'm sure there's a lot of people that it will help!

For anyone else wanting to try this, the basic info is broken down below:

Basically, download TWRP & SuperSU from these links & flash using Odin:

TWRP*http://www.mediafire.com/download/bl...-J320F.tar.tar
root file*http://www.mediafire.com/download/cp...0630161323.zip

The TWRP will be in Russian, but if you click on the right-hand side grey box then you can change to English.

First thing to do is run a Nandroid back-up and once completed copy the SuperSU file to the phone/Ext SD card and flash this (I flashed it twice, as the first attempt just made the phone constantty reboot after the logo.

Next you can flash thexPosed Lollipop 5.11 from here :* the framework for xposed lollipop 5.1.1*http://www.mediafire.com/download/hx...m-20151217.zip
