    can someone point me to a good set of instructions on how to root my metro pcs samsung galaxy core prime SM-G360TI running 5.1.1 baseband version G360TIUVU1APG2. I tried following instructions posted on rootmygalaxy's website http://rootmygalaxy.net/root-galaxy-core-prime-sm-g360t1metropcs-install-twrp/ using odin to flash a custom recovery twrp and i got that step done. I can boot into the custom recovery ok. and I can tell it to update to the zip file containing the root package but that's where my problems started. it tries to update using the package but it always fails to do so twice and then it says completed but displays an error message that says custom binary blocked by frp lock and reboots. but it never actually installs the package and it's always the same unrooted phone it was before. I tried all 3 of the root packages available for download on that site and nadda. I have also tried Kingo, OneClickRoot, and KingRoot as well with no success. I am stuck in the midway point where I'm not rooted but I can no longer update my software as I have modified my phone in a way metropcs finds unacceptable. please help I was told this was an easy phone to root as far as difficulty. thanks in advance

    update. so according to Smart Switch my software can't be updated and it's not allowing me to do an emergency software recovery. so I am back to square one.
