Root Galaxy Core Prime SM-G360T1(MetroPCS) & Install TWRP

Step 1. Download Odin and TWRP recovery file from above.

Step 2. Install MetroPCS Galaxy Core driver.First of all. Double-click the .exe file of drivers to begin the installation. (Not required if you have already done this.

Step 3. Extract the Odin file. You should get this file, Odin3 v3.10.6.exe (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).

Step 4. Disconnect your MetroPCS Galaxy Core from PC if it is connected.

Step 5. Boot MetroPCS Galaxy Core into download mode:

  1. Power off your MetroPCS Galaxy Core. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
  2. Press and hold the three buttons Power + Home + Volume down together until you see warning screen.
  3. Press Volume Up to continue to download mode.

Step 6. Double click on extract file of Odin, Odin3 v3.10.6.exe, to open the Odin window, as shown below. Be careful with Odin, and do just as said to prevent problems.

Step 7. Connect your MetroPCS Galaxy Core to PC now using USB cable. Odin should recognizeyour MetroPCS Galaxy Core. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.

  • You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.
  • If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with the device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).
  • You can try different USB ports on your PC too, btw.

Step 8. Load the TWRP recovery file into Odin. For this, click the AP button on Odin and the select the kernel’s file you downloaded above.


Step 9. Make sure Re-partition checkbox is NOT selected, under the Options tab. Don’t use PIT tab either. Go back to Log tab btw, it will show the progress when you hit start button in next step.

Step 10. Click the Start button on Odin now to start flashing the TWRP recovery on your MetroPCS Galaxy Core. Wait till installation is finished, after which your MetroPCS Galaxy Core will reboot automatically. You’ll get PASS message as shown below upon successful installation from Odin.

  • If Odin gets stuck at setup connection, then you need to do this all again. Disconnect your device, close Odin, boot device into download mode again, open Odin, and then select the file and flash it again as said above.
  • If you get FAIL in the top left box, then also you need to flash the file again as stated just above.

  3. Hello, I have a weird issue.

    I can flash TWRP perfectly fine; however, when I go to the TWRP recovery mode, and try to leave, it asks me if I want to download SuperSU. This doesn’t work. Alternatively, I downloaded SuperSU manually and put it on my device storage and tried using TWRP to run it that way. I tried both the newest stable and newest beta versions. In all scenarios, it seems to work and restarts the phone. But then on the loading screen, it freezes on the “MetroPCS- Riding on the T-Mobile Network” screen (After the purple ball animation). It stays on this screen and then the phone vibrates three pulses every minute or so.

    Any idea what is happening? I have tried it several times and keep getting stuck here.

    Thank you in advance!

  4. dont wipe or reset after install no wipe after install.
    1 flash recovery
    2 enter recovery
    3 factory settings only no wipe
    4 install superuser
    4 click on reboot system
    no wipe after

  5. hello guys, after been stuck at the same issue than Juan Camilo Santa
    “It happens to my phone what Nathan said when I try to leave TWRP, it asked me if I want to download SuperSU . Then on the loading screen, it freezes on the “MetroPCS- Riding on the T-Mobile Network” screen (After the purple ball animation). It stays on this screen and then the phone vibrates three pulses every minute or so. Since then my phone is not working it always freezes in the same spot and vibrates. Please help I Don’t want to lose my pictures and videos.”

    I manage to solve this by flashing the phone with odin and this file: TrapKernel_G360T1_Root.tar.md5
    dont ask me how I did it or where I found that file a really don’t remember, but I still got the file if any one needs it,
    so my phone now start normally I don’t know if it is rooted or not, but what I need is to make it works with my own network provider and its not working is says “Sim card or network operator not available” and it have a sim card installed, also when I manually went to settings>Mobile networks>network operators then make click on search now it detects my operator name, when try to join to it it says registering on ….. after a couple seconds “your sim card does not allow connections to this network” please any idea of what its happening here ? its the phone block ??

    many thanks in advances for any idea or help, Rey.

  6. Hello I followed all the steps exactly but when it comes time to boot into TWRP recovery all it does is take me to the regular Android Recovery screen. When I ran Odin I got the Pass just fine and to boot into TWRP I press vol up+home+power. Anyone know whats going on?
