How to choose a CF-Root Package for Samsung Galaxy device.
Once the CF-Root’s official website is open, you will see a long list of almost every Samsung Android device ever released. There are about 400 + Samsung devices from phones or tablets.
Here the 1st thing that you’ll notice is that Android devices are specified with their model numbers, not with their actual names like Galaxy S9 S10 or Galaxy Note 10 pro. That’s because Samsung Galaxy devices have different variations for the same device based on the country where it is sold and the carriers. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S9 has ten different variations for the same Android Device each one of them with a lightly different model number.
So in order to find your Samsung phones or tablets, model number go to the Android settings on your Samsung device. Then head over to the more section or scroll down until you see the about devices tap on that then scroll down until you see the model number section and that’s your specific model number. Also, make a note of the Android version of your device is running on. E.g. the model number of the phone is G960F, and the Android version of the device is running on 9.0 Pie.
So make a note of these two things because we’ll be needing them later and Oh I almost forgot. For those of you let me show that my devices unrooted. If I run the root check basic app as you can see it says root access is not installed on this device. And moreover, there is neither super Su nor KingoRoot installed on my Galaxy phone, which means my Android device is not rooted at this moment.
Open Google and a search on your browser by simply typing your device than Number. So You show your galaxy device right there. As I said, you can find almost every Samsung Android device here. We have all the devices like Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Y champ and the Galaxy Note. We also have newer Samsung devices like S9, S10, Note 10 and the list gets updated every time a new device comes out. So once we have located your device in the list, the second thing that you’ll need to confirm is the android version.
Make sure your Samsung device is running on the Android version which should match with root package android version. If your device is running on a Newest version of Android, then it might not work because there are around 400+ devices here and it’s too much work for chainfire to update each one of them separately.
But if you’re not sure about this then wait until they update root package list. The only 2 things that you need to confirm is your Galaxy device model number an Android version of your Samsung devices running on because trying to flash a root file not made for this specific device can brick 💔your lovely device. So be extra careful here. Once you have located your particular Android device in the list double check that then clicks at the download button at the right side then click on the download link and the download will begin.
It’s a pretty small file so that it won’t take a long time. Once the File downloading is completed, unzip the root zip package.

You will find the software and the root package for your specific Android device.
