  3. Hi, I followed your instructions, got the superuser. When I tried rootchecker, it won't allow me to grant access to root checker or titanium backup. Can you help?


    Before you attempt to root, go into Settings > General > About Device > Software Updates > and Auto Update. Make sure the little box is unchecked. After many countless failed attempts at rooting, disabling that option made the root finally work! If that doesn't work, I'm not sure what else you should do. However, it worked for me.

  5. I have a samsung tab T 805.
    My desktop PC and laptop are both running on windows 10 .I have installed all samsung drivers needed.USB debugging enabled on tab.
    When I connect my tab in download mode thru Odin,the tab. is detected but the rectangle up does not turn blue.If I try to run the tar file,it does run but I get ….success 0/failure 0 and thats all…obviously no root.
    I have tried different cables,different ports,pc and laptop both but the same problem persists.
    Have tried Odin…different versions also v.3.09, v3.10.7 but nothing works.
    Your advice and help ,please……Thanks

  6. I have a model SM-T700, Android 5.0.2.
    I installed the drivers on a Windows 10 and Windows, I cannot get the blue light from Odin.
    When I start my Tab by pressing VOL DOWN + HOME + POWER, it boots in recovery mode, is it the "download mode" that you describe in your notes?
    I've tried everything I can, an idea would be welcome! Thanks Gamerson.

    • You have to boot into download mode not in recovery mode actually once you booted connect it to your PC and if drivers are installed correctly you device will be detected by it.

  7. Hi! I am trying to root my SM T800 for Xmod games and I have followed the process you have mentioned above and it showed as successful. However, Xmod is still not operational for my Clash of Clans game and it is again requesting me to root the device. I would appreciate your help if you could please assist to provide me with a solution to have this fixed. Once again……Great work and thank you for your support.

  8. Nothing happens anymore after 1 hour waiting. I entered the tar fie in the AP and started. USB drivers installed. Pease help
    Odin engine v(ID:3.1100)..
    File analysis..
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..

  9. I have rooted as advised, but now i am facing internet problem as many of web pages are not been displayed.
    hope to find a suitable solution for the same.

  10. Sitll works great rootwise :0 , However I'm confused now because after rooting, i followed your link at the bottom of root page to "Xposed Module" I wished to install so that I could change dpi for individual apps using 'AppSwettings' but it's not clear for tab s 8.4 lollipop…

    i believe it says you can't use TWRP and also you need to flash some other kind of ROM?!… I'm completely new to all this and it sounds messy and scary….

    is there more simple way yet? for universal dpi on samsung rom or to install Xposed?

    Regarding DPI changing in general, I did try installing some other launchers and then some DPI changing apps whiched worked great for everything except the Samsung stock program (of course), so i couldn't go into 'settings' and such as it would crash…

  11. I have a Samsung tab s 8.4 SM-T705 running 5.0.2 baseband build LRX22G.T705XXU1BOJ8. Can I root it using the procedure shared by you. Do these build number matter. Would you please help me be certain about it before I try it. Appreciate your help.
