    I have a Samsung SM-A7108 Galaxy A7 purchased in China.

    It has embedded Operating System: Google Android 5.1.1. Chinese

    http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&id=9525&view=1&c=samsung_sm-a7108_galaxy_a7_2016_duos_td-lte

    I would like to know if I can root and use a custom rom for a different Samsung model in the A700 series to get around the Chinese embedded software.

    There do not appear to be any roms available for this specific model number.

    Grateful for any guidance or assistance.

    I would recommend against it as it can brick your phone

    Thanks for the reply

    Looks like I will sit tight on rooting the phone.

    Would you have any idea if a rom will be developed for the Samsung SM-A7108 Galaxy A7?
