Anyone got Root working on this thing yet?
« on: November 12, 2017, 02:08:32 pm »
I recently got this phone (old LG Ultimate 2 bit the dust :( ) and I'm loving it so far! Only caveat is that I can't seem to get root on it for the life of me! I've tried using ODIN flashables (for a SM-S920L on StraightTalk) but those all fail the Secure Check (I presume Tracfone has their own md5 signatures). Towelroot and Kingroot don't work either, so I'm asking here.

What model of the Grand Prime do you have?

Here's a screenshot of my 'About Phone' section in settings, should have everything. (ODIN images for a Straight Talk SM-920L don't work, it's strange)

Hmm, well try KingRoot and KingoRoot and report back your results, could just be a small thing.

As stated before, KingRoot doesn't work, it says it is not yet available for this device. I will try KingoRoot however and report back.

Kingo Root doesn't work. Looks like I have no way of rooting this.  :D Oh well, not much lost I suppose.

Okay so I finally got the Odin flashables to work. You SHOULD NOT enable the factory reset protection, if you have it enabled, it will not work. In order to flash using odin you have to factory reset, sign into your samsung account, and then uncheck the protection.

I've got Lineage 14.1 installed, full rooted, custom recovery... except now it won't detect the SIM card at all. Going back to stock fixes it, but with Lineage installed... nothing... no SIM. EDIT: Going back to stock fixes the SIM card issue, but now Wifi and USB don't work  ??? Well I'll be working on it...

What version of Android did you start with? I rooted mine in a jiffy.

It was an issue with reactivation lock, if you want to root make sure to disable it.
