These are the guidelines to root Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3. You can follow this guide to install a custom recovery on your device. Once you have that custom recovery installed, you can access it to install zip files. It’s that zip file capability that lets us install the SuperSU file. Once that SuperSU file is loaded, we then have root access. All you need to do from there is to reboot the system and you’re done. Since the guide gives you links and direct steps to installing a custom recovery and getting root access, you are able to do anything you want after you leave. You can search for any custom ROMs that are available for the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3, or you can just head directly to the Google Play Store for those root-requiring apps. The choice is yours. All you need to do first is learning how to root Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3.
