Ever read up on changing the boot animation of your Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone and thought you might have to install a new ROM to make it happen? It’s a common¬†contingency in the Android world and one we wish we could help fix. The reality is you can tweak your boot animation without ROMs, as well as without going to any real effort. Once you root the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone, all you need to do is download the Boot Animations app and check out the list of 300 boot animations to choose. The Boot Animations app is made by J. Rummy — the same guy who brings us the ROM Toolbox.

In order to install the Boot Animations app, you need to head over to the JRummy Apps websites and download it from the menu. You might not find this one available from the Google Play Store or any other third-party app vendor.

Rooting the Samsung Galaxy E7 SM-E7009 running Android 4.4.4 KitKat

  1. Enable the USB Debugging Mode on the SM-E7009 smartphone so it can then connect to the computer and use the flashing tool we are about to run.
  2. Extract the CF-Auto-Root file to the desktop of the computer to get the rooting exploit you need to flash and the Odin application.
  3. Right-click on the Odin app once it’s on the desktop and choose to run it as an administrator.
  4. Do not make any changes from the button you can see from the Odin application. All the default settings the same way.
  5. Long-press the Power button and wait until the Samsung Galaxy E7 is off completely.
  6. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone in download mode.
  7. Connect the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone to the computer with the USB cable.
  8. Give it a few seconds to detect your device and then look at the Odin application for a blue or a yellow ID: COM port color. No color from your ID: COM port suggests that the drivers are not working and you’ll need to download the universal Windows ADB driver and try again.
  9. Click the AP button from the Odin application once your device is detected and browse the desktop for the rooting file ending with tar.md5 for your Galaxy E7 SM-E7009 device.
  10. Click the Start button when you are ready to root the device.
  11. Wait some minutes for the pass message inside a green box, signifying that your device is now rooted.
  12. Turn your attention over to the Galaxy E7’s display and check for when it says the smartphone is restoring the stock recovery, cleaning up and then is going to reboot in 10 seconds. It’s at this stage that your E7 will automatically reboot to the recovery mode, programmed that way by Chainfire. It will apply the finishing touches to your rooting method.

In conclusion, that’s how to root the Samsung Galaxy E7 SM-E7009 running on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software update by using Chainfire’s easy one click rooting method. Any Galaxy E7 that did not boot into recovery mode at the end will need to be booted into recovery after the flashing finishes before it is rooted. You can do that by using the hardware buttons manually if your device refuses to boot to recovery automatically.
