How to root Samsung Galaxy A3 Duos SM-A3009 on Android 4.4.4 [Guide]

samsung-a3-2 [1]If you are looking for a reason to root Samsung Galaxy A3 Duos devices, look no further than the Greenify application. With Greenify, you can set apps to go into hibernation mode so they stop sucking up your juice when the app thinks that are sitting in the background.




  1. Download the updated CF-Root file from here [3].
  2. Download the Odin flashing tool from here [4].
  3. Transfer both files from the default downloads location over to the desktop.
  4. Right-click on the files one at a time and choose the “extract here” option from the menu.
  5. Double-click the Odin executable file and get the Odin flashing tool running on your computer.
  6. Make sure the USB Drivers are installed on the computer before going ahead from this point or it won’t work.
  7. Turn off the Samsung Galaxy A3 and reboot the device in download mode by pressing the Volume Down + Home + Power buttons simultaneously.
  8. Connect the Samsung Galaxy A3 smartphone to the computer using the USB cable.
  9. Click the AP button you can see from the Odin user-interface on the computer.
  10. Upload the executable CF-Root file you can see after you extracted it earlier.
  11. Click the Start button and wait for the Odin flashing tool to flash that rooting exploit by Chainfire on your Sammy smartphone.
  12. Soon you will get a pass box lighting up green and you should see the smartphone reboot automatically. Those of you who do not see the smartphone reboot, will need to do that manually by hand.
  13. Once the A3 handset reboots, you are all set to start installing your apps. Since Chainfire makes the SuperSU app, you already have that available from your app drawer.
