How to Install TWRP and Root Galaxy J3 SM-J320YZ

An official build of TWRP recovery is now available for the Samsung Galaxy J3. Thanks to folks over at TeamWin, the official maintainers of TWRP recovery.

For the unknown, with TWRP recovery installed on your Galaxy J3 you can root your phone by simply flashing the SuperSU zip by Chainfire. Or if you’d like to play Pokémon Go and use Android Pay while rooted, then get root via Magisk systemless interface instead of SuperSU. This way you’ll be able to bypass safetynet check, thanks to Magisk’s ability to disable root on-the-fly when needed.

Note: Make sure you backup all important files on your phone before proceeding.
