Have you ever heard about the SCR Screen Recorder application? Do you want to record the screen on your Samsung Galaxy Grand prime device? Unfortunately there are no apps available to record the screen on the Samsung Galaxy Grand prime unless you have root access. Root access means giving your apps access to the root file system. It’s that very same file system that many apps rely on to work — and often some of the better applications like the screen recorder app. Once you root Samsung Galaxy Grand prime devices, you can easily install the SCR Screen Recorder app and start recording anything that’s on your devices display.

Files You Need

  1. You must unlock the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime bootloader before following this guide.
  2. Download the CF-Root package from this page.
  3. Download the ADB drivers from this page.
  4. Download the latest Odin version from this page. If the guide doesn’t work for you, please try one of the other versions of Odin. Eventually one of the versions will work.
  5. You can only use the Odin flashing tool in this guide with a Windows PC.
  6. You void the warranty of the Galaxy Grand Prime by following this guide. You may get the warranty working again if your device doesn’t come with Samsung’s Knox security.
  7. The current CF-Root file for this rooting method is based on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software update. You should downgrade to Android 4.4.4 firmware by flashing it through Odin. That way you don’t risk the exploit being closed and bricking your device if you are running Android Lollipop or Marshmallow.
