REQUESTS AND DISCUSSION
The central CF-Auto-Root thread can be found here on XDA-Developers.com. Use that thread for requests for new roots and generic discussion. Most device models have their own dedicated threads on XDA, please keep discussion about those specific models in that dedicated thread, and don’t litter the central thread with them.
Please link directly to this page, or use the link you find in the table below.
Use at your own risk, I’m not responsible for bricking your device.
GET THE RIGHT FILE
Make sure you get the correct file. Using the incorrect file may brick your device.
If your target device has a custom firmware flash counter, CF-Auto-Root will trigger it. If you’re lucky, Triangle Away has support for your device and can be used to reset the counter.
If you have a KNOX-enabled device, using CF-Auto-Root will trip the KNOX WARRANTY VOID status !
Warning: If your device storage is encrypted, using CF-Auto-Root will wipe your data !
When newer firmwares are released for a certain device, sometimes that firmware includes new bootloaders that prevent kernels based on the old firmwares from booting. This usually coincides with a transition to a newer Android version. In that case, the CF-Auto-Root for download here may no longer work – flashing or booting might fail. It is too much work for me to keep track of all these firmwares, so if you encounter this issue, it is up to you to submit the recovery.img file from the latest firmware for your device to the CF-Auto-Root thread on XDA-Developers.com.
To be clear, just because you have a newer Android version than listed here, does NOT mean the CF-Auto-Root will not work – there’s a good chance that it will!
All downloads contain .tar.md5 files flashable in ODIN as PDA.
A modified recovery and cache partition will be flashed, which will install (only) SuperSU, then clean-up the cache partition and re-flash the stock recovery.
For the root to work, the device must reboot into recovery. Most devices will do this automatically after flashing these files, but in case that does not happen, please boot into recovery manually.
If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device – with the exception of Nexus devices, which will usually automatically “OEM unlock” and wipe your data !
