The KSWEB application is ultra-handy for anyone who runs a website and relies on that money while travelling away from home. Sometimes these websites go down and need servicing and unfortunately those occasions have a knack for cropping up at the worst times.
These are the guidelines to root the Samsung Galaxy E5 smartphone that has the SM-E500F model number running on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software update:
Files You Need
- Download the Galaxy E5 SM-E500F CF-Auto-Root file for devices that are running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop from here.
- The CF-Auto-Root tool by Chainfire does trip Knox and returns a warranty void status.

Rooting the Samsung Galaxy E5 SM-E500F running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software updates
- Enable the USB Debugging Mode from your Galaxy E5’s settings.
- Extract the CF-Auto-Root file to the desktop of your Windows computer.
- Right-click on the Odin executable file that is on the desktop and choose to run the application as an administrator.
- Leave all of the default settings the same way they are at the moment.
- Turn off the Samsung Galaxy E5 smartphone and reboot in download mode.
- Connect the Samsung Galaxy E5 smartphone to the computer with the USB cable.
- Wait for at least 5 seconds and then check for the blue or yellow ID: COM color that is letting you know the E5 is connected properly and detected. No light or added message means you need to install the universal Windows ADB driver on the computer and try again.
- Click the AP button and browse the desktop of the E5’s rooting file ending in the tar.md5 extension.
- Once you can see that same file extension has loaded to your Odin app, click the Start button from the Odin app.
- Keep watching the Odin app for a green box to appear with the pass message inside.
- Now look over to the display of your E5 smartphone and wait until it says that the rooting exploit is restoring the stock recovery, cleaning up and reboot in ten seconds.
- The Samsung Galaxy E5 SM-E500f smartphone is now going to reboot to recovery mode automatically because it’s programmed that way by the rooting file.
In conclusion, that’s how to root the Samsung Galaxy E5 smartphone with the SM-E500F model number. Any device that did not get into recovery mode during the last step like we said can get booted to recovery mode manually instead. Just do it as soon as you get the green pass box appearing and it should work just the same. The developer, Chainfire, states that if your device does not get into recovery mode, the rooting process will not have worked properly.
Anyone who has gotten the drivers working, did notice the Samsung Galaxy E5 make it in recovery mode and still isn’t having success should try installing a different version of the Odin flashing tool and try again. Sometimes it takes a few turns with different Odin versions before one works.
