samsung_sm_a510m [1]When you buy a device that is running on any of the Android software versions, sadly, you are buying a device that isn’t letting you be in full control of that operating system by default. It makes you work a little bit for it which isn’t always a bad thing. Many things in life taste a little sweeter should you have to put in a certain amount of work to achieve them, and nothing is stopping you from viewing rooting Android in much the same way.

By putting in just a little bit of work, you can become the root user, and that puts you in control of the Samsung Galaxy A5 SM-A510M smartphone, so you properly own it.




  1. Download the CF-Auto-Root [4] tool for the Samsung Galaxy A5 SM-A510M smartphone running on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates.
  2. Open the Downloads folder (or whatever the default folder is for your downloaded files if you have changed it) and then extract the rooting file to the Downloads folder.
  3. Run the Odin flashing application that is now available from the Downloads folder and the user interface of the flashing tool opens.
  4. Boot the Samsung Galaxy A5 SM-A510M smartphone into the Download Mode [5] and then connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
  5. Check that Odin is showing a blue or yellow ID: COM port which is there to let you know the Samsung USB Drivers that you installed earlier are working and allowing for the flashing tool to detect your device.
  6. Click on the AP button from the Odin user interface and then select the MD5 rooting file from the Downloads folder.
  7. Click on the Start button from Odin and then the rooting of your Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone begins.
  8. Since this is the systemless root version of the rooting tool, it can take a few minutes to complete. Read the information that rolls down the display of the smartphone because it lets you know what is happening and what to expect.
  9. Wait for the green pass box to show up on the Odin user interface before disconnecting from the computer.

In conclusion, that is how to root Samsung Galaxy A5 SM-A510M smartphones running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates by flashing the systemless root versions of the CF-Auto-Root tool that is developed by Chainfire.
