How to install TWRP Recovery on Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700F [Guide]

Samsung-Galaxy-J5-and-J7 [1]If you own a Samsung device, then chances are you are in luck of obtaining an easy root method. Whether it be using a one-click rooting tool like Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root or flashing a SuperSU package from a custom recovery image, Chainfire has got you covered nine times out of ten.

If you are into becoming the root user on Android, then you would know who Chainfire is already, and you would know that he is superb at what he does. Rooting is not the only thing he does in life, however, and sometimes he does not create CF-Auto-Root tool versions as quickly as he probably could. The Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone with the SM-J700F model number is one of those devices. You need not worry, though, because there is a custom recovery image (TWRP) available and with it, you can become the root user by flashing the right version of SuperSU.

Here is everything you need to install TWRP Recovery on Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700F smartphone so you can flash ROMs or even become the root user:

  7. Click on the “AP” button.
  8. Select the TWRP file from the desktop to upload to Odin.
  9. Make sure to uncheck the box for the Auto Reboot found in the Odin options menu, so the smartphone does not automatically reboot after the flashing completes.
  10. Click the “Start” button in Odin and the custom recovery installation on the J7 begins.
  11. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone to recovery mode so that it first-time boots into recovery and not the normal mode which helps stop the stock recovery from wiping over your work.
