  1. Did all the steps. Issues:
    1. reboots asking for password
    2. After that goes into a boot loop
    To fix the above, I just reinstalled stock OS again
    3. Tried using superSU (no instructions whatsoever here!)
    4. Used it anyways and came to an options screen on my phone but the superSU exits whereas on the instructions video it doesn’t!!!!
    5. Tried ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING but this J2 just wont root!!!!! Could you please give a step by step instructions to help resolve this?

  2. So, I’ve hit a snag…after un root I’m seeing the enter password message as I have used a different rom…so, what would be the next step?

  3. Stuck in Downloading and do not turn off target screen… done all the step.. flash to the compatible firmware with all files.. done root files.. no error msg in odin… all threads complete and went good.. first attempt was good but end up at passcode required to unlock phase.. den reflash and get this and stuck.. try reflash again with the same way and still get into passcode required to unlock phase.. 🙁

  4. Try to flash the compatible firmware on your device. You can find the download links in the Prerequisites section. Then follow the root process again to root your device.

  5. ok, now my phone is on bootloop after I wipe data and cache. What should I do
