About CF-Auto-Root:

CF-Root is the root for “rooting beginners” and those who want to keep as close to stock as possible. CF-Root is meant to be used in combination with stock Samsung firmwares, and be the quickest and easiest way for your first root. 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.

NOTE: Using this root increases your flash counter. You should run Triangle Away after rooting to reset the counter. Note that if you want to run custom kernels or custom recoveries, your flash counter will be set to 1 at every boot. Either configure Triangle Away to reset the counter at every boot (Play version only) or only reset the counter when you need to go into warranty.

  • ODIN crashes when I get the message “Writing NAND” using the file: CF-Auto-Root-d2tmo-sght999.tar.md5.

    Restarting ODIN and the Phone to the failed update screen I managed to restart the rooting process using the file:CF-Auto-Root-t0lte-gtn7105.tar.md5 and save my phone.

    I have confirmed this and tried to restart the rooting process by using the: CF-Auto-Root-d2tmo-sght999.tar.md5 but it crashes ODIN again.

    The next flaw is that the screen now losses colour saturation leaving it looks cheap. The Colours are ok when I am restarting the phone but after a few seconds on the lock screen the colours fade.
