[FIXED] SM-G130HN Rescue Me!

Hi All,

I have tried to root above device [G130HNXXU0APE1] using various methods found here for very similar base name - none of which seemed to work. The last one I tried used Odin to flash over a root.tar file [actually G130HNXXU0ANG6_ROOT.tar] in the PDA section.

All I have now is the splash screen with a red exclamation mark and no further!

I admit I did not find out how to backup or anything so am really stuck at this point

Any help appreciated.

Update: I have downloaded G130HNXXS0APK2_G130HNEVR0ANL1_G130HNXXU0APE1_HOME. tar.md5 from sammobile

Looking at this with 7-Zip the tar contains lots of .img files like boot.img, recovery.img

Can I use any of these to recover my situation?

Update2: I used Odin 3.12.7 and selected the tar.md5 above in the AP section. This has now completed successfully and I am back up and running.

I will change status to FIXED but would still like to know - how the hell *do* you root this phone? LOL!
