EDIT. We have an Odin flashable *.tar md5 file that will auto root your Samsung Galaxy J1 SM-J105F. Find it here: - A TWRP custom recovery

  1. Obtain the file from the above source
  2. On the phone, go to Settings > About device > Software Info > and repeatedly tap on Built number until you are a developer
  3. Back on the main Settings options, you will now see 'Developer options' - tap that
  4. Turn on 'OEM Unlock' by moving the slider to the right - tap ENABLE
  5. Turn the device off and boot into "Download Mode'
  6. Load the root *.md5 file under 'AP' on Odin and flash

You should be rooted after that
