  3. Extract the files on the desktop of the computer.
  4. Long-press the Power button on the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone and turn off the device.
  5. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 in download mode.
  6. Connect the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 to the computer with the USB cable.
  7. Click the PDA button or the AP button from the Odin flashing tool’s user-interface and upload the Galaxy Grand 2’s tar.md5 file that is on the desktop.
  8. Do not make any changes to the default settings you get with the Odin flashing tool after you first open the file.
  9. Click the Start button and the Odin flashing tool will install and enable the SuperSU on your Grand 2 via the Cf-Auto-Root tool.
  10. Look over at the display of your Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone and wait until it says it is about to reboot in 10 seconds.

Watch for the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 to reach recovery mode automatically and if that doesn’t happen you need to boot it in recovery mode yourself by holding the Power + Home + Volume Down Up buttons.

Sometimes new software updates can bring in new bootloader which prevent the kernels from booting. If your device fails to boot it is likely due to that problem. You can report the problem to Chainfire from the official CF-Auto-Root thread [5] over at XDA Developers.
