How to root Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 on Android 5.1 Lollipop [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 [1]Since the guide teaches you how to install SuperSU, there isn’t much use telling you about the SuperSU app that you might want to install as one of your best root apps to try on your Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone. Just know that when the guide is done, you will always need to keep the SuperSU app available from your app drawer because it is the app that will be giving your device the root access. Further, the SuperSU also comes with a built-in security service whereby it vows never to let anything through its gates without your knowledge. There are no written guarantees with that, but that’s the general way in which the SuperSU app works. It relies on you to choose what you grant rooting privileges to and what you want to knock back. Its job is to stop everything in its path, and it does that so you can stop anything that doesn’t look right or is a potential threat.




  1. Download the KingRoot application from its official home over at the XDA-Developers web forum [3].
  2. Install the APK file directly on your smartphone from the web browser or transfer the file from a computer to your SD card and install it with a File Manager if you prefer.
  3. Once the KingRoot application is installed correctly, open the app from your J7’s app drawer and click on the large Root button from the app’s main page.
  4. Wait for the device to get rooted and then it will give you a success message when it’s done.
  5. Now head over to this page and download the Framaroot rooting tool.
  6. Install the Framaroot app like you would a standard APK once again and then flash the SuperSU on your device when it’s done.

In conclusion, that is how to root Samsung Galaxy J7 2016 smartphones running on the Android 5.1 Lollipop updates — the same update it arrives with out of the box. You should know this same way works if your device is updated to a newer version of Android shortly.
