How To Root Samsung J7
After purchasing the new Samsung J7 to replace the Samsung Tab 4 that was giving my daughter so many problems, I took a deep breath and began working with the phone. The first project was to root the phone. I've already rooted a Samung J7 before, so I thought it would be easier to stick with a phone that I've had some experience with.
I used my notes from the link above, which I am reprinting again, as well as a few new pages that I found and liked. I am a fan of "step-by-step" instructions over video, so I found a site that provided detailed instructions that I could follow.
After following the instructions, the phone was rooted, and I verified it with root checker.
After rooting, I installed cell spy monitoring software.
