Anyone using the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone with the SM-E700H model number running on Android 4.4.4 KitKat might not know they can use terminal on the device. Terminal commands are more common on full size desktop computers when using Linux — the same operating system Android is developed from originally. Linux is known as having to use a terminal for just about everything you want to do as a pose to something Microsoft would produce that comes with a button or program to get the job done instead. If you want to be a true ‘techie’ and use terminal, just download the Terminal Emulator application from the Google Play Store after you are done rooting your device.
Files You Need
- Download the Galaxy E7 SM-e700H’s rooting file for those running Android 4.4.4 from here.
- The CF-Auto-Root tool does trip Knox and give a warranty void status if your device is Knox enabled. Check with your smartphone service provider to see if they are still willing to cover your device if the warranty is important to you. Some of them will let you root in order to keep your business. Others like Verizon certainly will not.
Rooting the Samsung Galaxy E7 SM-E700H smartphone running on Android 4.4.4 KitKat
- Enable the USB Debugging Mode on the Galaxy E7 SM-E700H device so you can connect it to the computer with the USB cable and start using the Odin flashing tool.
- Extract the E7’s rooting file to the desktop and it will give you the rooting exploit and the Odin flashing tool inside.
- Right-click on the Odin executable file and choose to run it as an administrator.
- Do not change any of the default settings from the Odin user-interface.
- Boot the Samsung Galaxy E7 SM-E700H smartphone to download mode and connect to the computer with the USB cable.
- Wait for around 10 seconds for the ID: COM port to light up a yellow or blue color before doing anything. Those not finding the ID: COM port color will need to install the universal Windows ADB driver and try again.
- Click the AP button from the Odin application on the computer and upload your rooting file for the E7 device that is ending in the tar.md5 extension.
- Click the Start button and the rooting will begin.
- Keep looking until you can see the box light up green from the Odin user-interface and a pass message to be inside that box.
- Now look over at the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone display and wait until it says the device is restoring the stock recovery, cleaning up and then rebooting in 10 seconds.
- The Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone will now reboot to recovery mode where it will enable the SuperSU on your device. It’s automatically planned that way by the rooting tool so do not be alarmed when you see your display change into recovery mode.
In conclusion, that’s how to root the Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone with the SM-E700H model number running on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software updates. Any device that does not get into recovery mode during the last step of the guide will need to be manually booted to recovery mode instead or else the guide will not have worked. You should apply that as soon as your flashing finishes and the Odin application gives you the green box and the ‘pass’ message.
