Rooting the Android OS that runs on the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone is the way to get the opportunity to install any of the apps that are out there available for your device. The device you are given comes with a locked operating system that many people never notice the difference, but a lot of people do. The difference is that there are many apps available from Google Play and other sources online that will download and install but when you try to open them without a rooted device, they will not run. These are what we call root apps, and they are what you can run when you complete the guide after the break.
- You need to have the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone that comes with the SM-A9100 model number to use this guide. Flashing the incorrect version of the CF-Auto-Root tool can brick your device, so make sure you check you have the right one. You can find out the model number of the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone by tapping on the Settings app > About Device.
- You need to have a computer that runs on a version of the Windows operating system to use the Odin flashing tool file available in this guide.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Install the Samsung USB Drivers on the computer before you get started with the steps of the rooting procedure so that your smartphone can be detected by the flashing tool.
- Unlock the Developer Options menu on the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone and then enable the USB Debugging Mode so you can make changes to the Android software.
- Note that Chainfire often makes the firmware build number that his version of the device was running when he developed the rooting file available in our guides, but that doesn’t mean you need to be running the same firmware build numbers as him. He just gives you that information if you want to use it as an indicator. The version, in this case, is the MMB29M.A9100ZCU1APF1 firmware build number. You can run any version of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates regardless of the firmware build number as long as you have the right SM-A9100 model number.
