ROOTING YOUR PHONE WILL PROBABLY VOID YOUR WARRANTY FROM BOTH THE CARRIER AND THE MANUFACTURER. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO ACCEPT FAULT FOR ANY ADVERSE EFFECTS OF ROOTING, THEN DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER.

Downloads and installs

Phone Setting

  • Turn on developer mode:

    Settings > About device > Sofware info > Build number.
    Tap build number 7 times.

  • Enable USB debugging:

    Settings > Developer options > USB debugging.
    Turn on.

  • Enable OEM (very important!):

Settings > Developer options > OEM unlock.
Allow the device to be OEM unlocked. This has to be turned on for ever from now! Reports said without this options phones have turned into bricks.

Rooting

  • Turn your phone off, then turn it on in download mode.

    Press and hold together Volume Down, Home and Power.

  • Connect the phone to the computer.

  • Start Odin and select AP, then browse to the Root File.

  • Press Start and the rooting will process.

    Note that for Galaxy A3 2017 (SM-A320F) with Android 8 these instructions are not sufficient! Namely, in addition to OEM unlocking, you must disable RMM to prevent bricking your device after flashing custom binaries. See this page for details. – Ruslan Aug 13 at 20:39
