Notes / Warning!

  1. Use at your own risk, I’m not responsible for bricking your device.
  2. Using the incorrect file may brick your device.
  3. If your target device has a custom firmware flash counter, Rooting will trigger it. If you’re lucky, Triangle Away has support for your device and can be used to reset the counter.
  4. If you have a KNOX-enabled device, Rooting will trip the KNOX WARRANTY VOID status !
  5. If your device storage is encrypted, Rooting will wipe your data !
  6. 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 !
  7. Make sure to backup your important data before root it.

  1. Hello,
    I recently bought a Samsung A6 ( SM-A600FZKNXEF). Before beginning to use it, I tried to install TWRP for backup ( not interested to root it for the moment). I followed the procedure but unfortunately, it did not work for me. After I installed TWRP and fix for RMM, the phone was rebooting indefinitely. Luckily, I was able to flash an official ROM.

    Did someone already face this issue?

      1. Thank you for your reply. As suggested, I focused on point 12 and I noticed that I didn’t install Magisk-v18.1. So I tried again and the phone normally booted after I install TWRP But I face another strange behavior : I wanted to protect my phone with a PIN and it didn’t work ( the phone was indefinitely asking my pin). Then I rebooted and … it was bootlooping :-(.

  2. Thank you again for your help. I read in rooting procedure : “If your target device has a custom firmware flash counter, Rooting will trigger it. If you’re lucky, Triangle Away has support for your device and can be used to reset the counter.” and it scared me!!

    I faced several issues while trying to install TWRP and do not feel comfortable with all these tools. I think I will not go further.

  3. Hello,

    I noticed that if I install TWRP and Magisk the phone seems to not be RMM locked:
    – OEM unlock option is still visible in development tools
    – I can still flash TWRP
    – in download mode, RMM state = Prenormal” is not displayed.

    So it seems that the phone is not RML locked. Maybe it can help.
