The Samsung Galaxy A50 with the octa-core Exynos 9610 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz is a really powerful device. But, what if I said that you can make it even more powerful? Who doesn’t like the apps getting loaded quickly and a phone which is snappy? After all, no one likes a device which is slow and sluggish. Rooting is one way.
Before I begin with the steps to root your device, do you know why is your smartphone slow?
The primary reason for the device being slow is, “It comes with a lot of bloatware” which consumes huge resources (CPU, RAM, GPU, and STORAGE) and the second reason is not being able to remove bloatware apps and allocate resources to the ones which you use on regular basis such as the Phone Dialer, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Camera, or even PUBG Mobile, etc.
Rooting your device not only allows you to remove the unwanted apps but also be able to allocate resources, overclock the device, installing mods, etc. Being able to control the hardware adds more power to the device and can mess up too. If you are willing to take the risk, I’m going to share the steps you can follow to root your Samsung Galaxy A50. Sounds Interesting right, so shall we begin with the steps?
Before you begin, The Galaxy A50’s rooting process is similar to other Samsung devices and is divided into two steps, the first step involves installing a custom recovery such as TWRP Recovery and the second process involves using the custom recovery to flash the root manager such as SuperSU.
- Enable Developer Options, To do so: Go to Settings > About Device > Build Number and Tap it until you see the “You’re a developer now” message.
- Enable OEM Unlock & USB Debugging: Go to Settings > Developer Options. Look for OEM Unlock, enable it and then look for USB debugging and enable it.
- Download the below files:
- ODIN v3.13.1
- Samsung USB Drivers
- TWRP Recovery
- Root Manager: SuperSU or Magisk (Whichever you prefer)
- Copy all files to your Micro-SD Card because internal storage will be wiped during the process.
1. Install TWRP Recovery

- Connect your Samsung phone to pc via USB cable. It should detect your phone. You have to click on start and wait for the process to be completed.
- Press and Hold Volume Down + Power keys. When the Samsung logo appears then release the volume down button only and quicky press volume up button to boot into recovery mode and access the TWRP recovery. You have to release all the keys once TWRP home screen appears.
- Once TWRP recovery gets booted on your Samsung galaxy A50, wipe the data and reboot to recovery.
