    What's the best way now to root SM-G900F on lollipop? Knox is already 0x1 so that doesn't matter.
    TWRP doesn't flash anymore (others are having the same issue and it doesn't even trip Knox as it doesn't work) and trying CF-Auto-Root got me into a bootloop again when it gets stuck on recovery booting and never moves. That bloody tool never works for any phone I try it on..

    What are the other methods that still work?
    G900FXXU1BOE3 this one is.

    Strange!

    It may not be working for you but it is certainly working for the vast majority of users.

    Both CF-Auto-Root and TWRP 2.8.7.0 klte.tar custom recovery work fine on the G900F model for all the stock Samsung firmware releases, including OE3, OE5 and now on the latest, OH4 release.

    I recommend that you double check you are using the correct files and method of installing.

    I got it working now, I don't know if I downloaded the file wrong or used the wrong version of Odin or what. I used Odin v3.09 instead of 10.0.6 or something like that and this time it worked great.

    Also, do you know why CF-Auto-Root never seems to work on any phone I try it on? Every phone I've tried it on it flashes fine but it gets stuck on the boot logo with RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING, this happens everytime. That's why I don't even bother with it anymore.

    Either Odin v3.09 or 10.0.6 will work .

    Are you using the correct CF-Auto-Root file for klte?

    Are you flashing the correct TWRP .tar file via Odin?

    SEANDROID ENFORCING just means... Samsung Elelctronics ANDROID ENFORCING which you would expect to see if you had flash a rooted kernel/custom recovery. Just wipe the cache partition in Recovery Mode and reboot.

    Might I suggest that you change your thread title, so as not to imply that CF-Auto Root and TWRP no longer works on the G900F model which, as you have found, they clearly do. We don't want to confuse other rooters, do we.
