How to Root Samsung Galaxy Phones with CF-Auto-Root. In this article we will see how to root all Samsung phones via CF-Auto-Root. There is no denying that Samsung is one of the largest smartphone makers currently, Galaxy devices continue to dominate the Android market.

The problem is that when creating many phones with different features, it is difficult to keep them updated to the latest version of the operating system, particularly when this operating system is Android. Samsung has finally managed to update most of its flagship devices to Android 7.0 Nougat, which is the latest version of the Android operating system.

Ever since Samsung’s first version of GraceUX was released, which is the Nougat-based TouchWiz UI, several root methods have begun to surface online, such as Magisk. Now, one of the most popular developers in the Android community, Chainfire, has made it much easier to root Samsung devices.

Just recently, Chainfire updated the CF-Auto-Root software with the addition of support for most, if not all Samsung phones with the Nougat update. Here’s how to root Galaxy phones with CF-Auto-Root.
