    This is one way. The reason it's so difficult is that Samsung makes it additionally difficult to root AT&T and Verizon versions of everything (per the carriers' orders). I believe this may be a Nougat ROM, but other than KingRoot, it's the only rooting I could find for the 982A. (And Kingroot may or may not steal your data - we don't know.) AT&T Samsungs haven't been easy to root since 2013.

    Oh, take the USB 3.0 warning seriously. The Pixel 2 has the same problem and I bricked one that way (but they're trivial to unbrick - Samsung isn't). An older computer with a USB 2.0 port or a 3.0 port and a 2.0 hub will work. (Even a 3.0 port, a microUSB cable and a microUSB to Type C adapter might work.)
