We have to Flash the above kernel Via Odin

Root Samsung Galaxy A8 With Odin

Step 1. Download Odin and SpaceXKernel from above.

Step 2. Install Galaxy A8 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 Galaxy A8 from PC if it is connected.

Step 5. Boot Galaxy A8 into download mode:

  1. Power off your Galaxy A8. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
  2. Press and hold the three buttons Power + Home + Volume down together until you see the 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 Galaxy A8 to PC now using USB cable. Odin should recognize your Galaxy A8. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in the 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!! the message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.
  • If you don’t get Added!! the 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 Kernel 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 the start button in next step.

Step 10. Click the Start button on Odin now to start flashing the TWRP recovery on your Galaxy A8. Wait till installation is finished, after which your Galaxy A8 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.

DONE!!! Your Phone is now rooted.

To verify the root status install Root Checker.
