We’ve all heard that gaining access to the Android internal system with root access is how to get the most out of our devices. Well, the story is no different here with the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 smartphone. The following is a new method that teaches you how to root the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 smartphone using Chainfire’s SuperSU. The SuperSU is the most common exploit to install on your phone that allows for the rooting permissions.
The Files You Need
- Download the SuperSU from here.
- You must have installed a custom recovery on the Samsung Galaxy Xcover before following this guide. You need to access that custom recovery to flash the SuperSU.
- Here is the guide to install TWRP recovery on the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 mobile device.
Rooting the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3
- Download the SuperSU from the files section above and move it over to the desktop of the computer.
- Do not extract or unzip the SuperSU file.
- Connect the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 smartphone to the computer using the USB cable you would normally use for charging the battery.
- Copy the SuperSU zipped file over to the root of the SD card.
- Unplug the Xcover 3 smartphone from the computer after you have copied the file.
- Boot the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 device into the custom recovery mode by pressing the Volume Up + Home + Power buttons.
- From the main recovery menu, select the Install option.
- Browse the SD card for the SuperSU package you put on the root of the SD card earlier. If it’s not on the root (topmost folder) you won’t find it.
- Confirm you want to install that SuperSU package and it will root your Sammy device.
- Go back to the main recovery menu once the SuperSU is installed and choose the Reboot System option.
- Now your Galaxy Xcover three will reboot back in the normal mode and with root access.
Since you just flashed the SuperSU package, you do not need to install any SuperSU from the Google Play Store. Just start browsing the Google Play Store for your root-requiring applications you want to install instead.
