If you follow these simple instructions your device will be rooted quicker than you can say “root my phone now, please” OK, it might take a little longer than that!

Important Information

  • Rooting your device will void the warranty on it and you do this at your own risk. We won’t be held responsible for the consequences of following this procedure.
  • Make sure that you are using the SM-G386T version of the Galaxy Avant.
  • Verify your Galaxy Avant has at least 40% of battery before you start to root your device.
  • Confirm you have the Samsung Galaxy USB drivers from the official Sammy website. You’ll find them from the ‘downloads’ page.
  • Navigate your way over to the Settings menu and enter the Developer Options menu. Now check the box to enable USB Debugging Mode.

Let’s Get Prepared

  1. Firstly you need to have a Windows PC, this won’t work on other operating systems.
  2. Visit the official Sammy website to download the drivers:

  3. Turn on the computer and download the Odin file to the desktop. Unzip the package and have it running:
    Odin
  4. Download the file you need for the rooting:

How easy was that?  Now that you’ve rooted your Samsung Galaxy Avant you can start to install root-only apps on it.

Want A Custom Recovery On Your Galaxy Avant?

  1. If you want to have a custom ROM on your device you’ll need to flash a custom recovery on your device.  So follow these simple instructions to flash a customer recovery onto your device.
  2. Double-click on Odin again to start it back up.
  3. Click PDA and choose TWRP Recovery from your desktop.
  4. Make sure Repartition isn’t ticked, if it is ticked then click on the box to untick it.
  5. Make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are ticked, if they aren’t ticked then click on the boxes to tick them.
  6. Turn off the device
  7. Hold down Volume Down, Home and Power at the same time to switch your device back on.
  8. When you see a warning message on the screen press Volume Up and it will switch into download mode.

That’s the end of the steps. You can download the root checker application from the Google Play Store and check if it’s working. If Odin says it failed, you should try downloading the up to date USB drivers. Being a Galaxy device from the Sammy range, that means heading over to the official Samsung website and downloading them. There are other third-party links available.

I bet you never thought it would be this easy, right?  Now you can start using the custom recovery to install a custom ROM or custom Mod.
