How do I root Samsung J3 (2016) after getting Nougat 7.1.1?

  • Samsung root

    Hi guys, My Samsung J3 (2016) no longer is rooted after taking the Nougat update by using Smart Switch (Knox flagged 0x1). I have downloaded SuperSU from Google Play and rooted the device before updating my OS (previously on Android 6.0.1, Stock FW, 2nd patch) but when I click it after the update, it says root undetected, using root checker basic says I don't have root and none of my user apps were changed or deleted. My model number is SM-J320W8 on Nougat, can you help me? I rooted the device (Knox flagged 0x1) using Odin by a YouTube tutorial. I tried all the APK based one-click-root apps and they never worked even on my old OS! I think using Odin is the only way to root the device, can I root the device without installing TWRP or use CF Auto Root from Thank you.

    I have GameGuardian, BusyBox Free, Root Explorer, SuperSU, Root Checker Basic, Xmodgames, Lucky Patcher and Titanium Backup as root tool apps on my device.
