I tried to root my phone Samsung Galaxy J1 (SM-J100H) with Odin3 software following some steps, but after that now it's not working, I turned on the phone and it vibrates one time and I see only the Samsung logo and nothing else. I tried too wipe all data and factory reset but it doesn't do anything. What can I do?


A factory reset won't undo rooting since it only clears the /data partition and not /system.

What you should do to get your device working is flash a stock ROM with Odin. You can get one from sammobile.com. As usual, you would put the .tar file from there into the AP/PDA field of Odin and flash it while the phone is connected in Download mode.

  • I get this error: Complete(Write) operation failed. i.imgur.com/6QBQg04.jpg Please so much help me to solve this. can you suggest me a version please? 1.85 is good? – Dimas Mar 14 '16 at 21:45
  • @Dimas The versions are in the PDA column, things like J100HXXU0APB3 not 1.85. Just filter by your country/carrier and then try the second-newest, or maybe the oldest, etc. I don't have this phone so I don't know what versions are the best. Maybe try Romania? – Matthew Read Mar 14 '16 at 22:06
  • @Dimas No problem, glad it's working! – Matthew Read Mar 15 '16 at 20:20
