Just today, Chainfire breached all these security patches set by Samsung and managed to update his famous rooting tool CF-Auto-Root for a number of devices running Android Lollipop and Marshmallow. Our beloved Galaxy J7 is one of those devices.
You must have the Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone with the SM-J700M model number to use this version of the CF-Auto-Root tool. There is usually a new version of the rooting file made for each model number and flashing the wrong one will probably brick the device.
You must have a computer running the Windows operating system to use this guide because the CF-Auto-Root tool relies on the Odin flashing application for it to flash. The Odin flashing app only runs on Windows PCs. You can try running the Windows environment from a virtual machine on the Mac or Linux computers if you cannot get a copy of Windows.
