How to root Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T355 on Android 5.0.2 [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy Tab A [1]Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool can root the Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T355 tablet when it is running on the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop software updates. By rooting the Android operating system on the tablet, we are referring to becoming the root user which means having full control over what is installed and uninstalled. That includes getting the chance to remove the system apps from Samsung and your phone carrier networks.

One of the ways you can remove system apps is by installing the Titanium Backup [2] app. Once you grant Titanium Backup access to everything on the tablet that it needs to run, it can read all of the application’s data. It’s that ability to read that makes it powerful enough to let users backup any data that they want. The root access also means that it can get access to the system partition to remove anything that is tucked away like the system apps.




  1. Start by turning on the computer and logging into the administrators account so you can use the flashing tool with adequate permissions.
  2. Download the CF-Auto-Root [6] tool for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T355 running on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop software updates.
  3. Extract the rooting file [7] to the desktop of the computer and then run the Odin flashing tool that is on the desktop, so it opens.
  4. Boot the Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T355 into the download mode [8] and connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
  5. Click the AP button from Odin and browse through to the desktop and select the rooting MD5 file to upload to Odin.
  6. Click the Start button for the rooting to begin.
  7. Wait until the Odin shows a pass message inside a new green box before unplugging from the computer.

In conclusion, that is how to root Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T355 tablets running on the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop software updates by flashing Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool—a one-click rooting tool for nearly all Samsung devices—that installs and enables the SuperSU. That’s the same SuperSU that people install from custom recovery images, and like a custom recovery image, the CF-Auto-Root tool needs to install a modified recovery to get SuperSU enabled.¬†That happens behind the scenes after you press the Start button from the Odin flashing app.
