  1. Hi from Cuba, I have the Chinese version of the Samsung Galaxy On5 (SM-G5500) this guide can help me to root this model. In the case that can’t do can you point me in the right direction. I have really problems to find a way to root this phone because is not a well known device. Thanks for any help.

  2. Can’t do the custom ROM because “surprise” the phone have a locked bootloader. I’m still looking how to unlock it. It’s a nightmare, I don’t know nothing about chinese and every page that I found with a possible solution its that language, of course I used Google Translator but nothing for now.

  3. Hi, I got the frp lock error after clicking start button in odin. Please help for root after removing battery phone starts normally but its stopped custom boot.

  4. Hello, I followed your instructions and it went smoothly until I flashed the kernel. Now my phone gets stuck in a bootloop. I am able to access TWRP recovery system only. If you have original boot kernel image to flash that would help. Or if you have any advice that would help also.
