Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700M [1]Anyone wanting a rooting method that works without having to do hardly any work is going to love what Chainfire has developed with the CF-Auto-Root tool. Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool is a one-click rooting tool that is made to work for just about every Samsung tablet and smartphone that has ever been manufactured, including many unique model numbers of the same device. What most people might not know is that CF-Auto-Root is also available for other manufacturers too, but the way the flashing is done differs. Additionally, the range of devices it is currently available for is much thinner–although Chainfire says that he plans to make it more easily accessible for more devices away from Samsung in the future.

  6. Do not change any default options from the Odin user interface and all of its buttons.
  7. Click the AP button from Odin and then browse through to the Downloads folder and select the MD5 file to upload to this location in Odin.
  8. Click the Start button from Odin and the rooting process begins.

In conclusion, that is how to root Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700M smartphones when they are operating on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software updates by using Chainfire’s one-click rooting tool, namely CF-Auto-Root.
