8) In ODIN click on AP and then select the recovery file you downloaded.
9) Click on start. The flashing process will start.
10) If the flashing succeeds, ODIN will show 'PASS'. That means the recovery flashed successfully. It will boot into recovery.
11) Swipe to Allow Modifications. Click on Reboot then System.
12) Copy and place downloaded SuperSU file to your external SD card.
13) Turn off your phone.
14) Reboot to recovery (by pressing Volume up+home+power buttons).
