    I heard bad things about king root and would like some advice from pros.

    The model is SM-J320V and the carrior is Verizon if that matters.

    Edit: Im also on the latest firmware(6.0.1) but idk if that matters.

    Why do you want to root it? I'm afraid with the combination of Verizon and MM there isn't much you can do, unless bricking your J3 is one of the answers to my first question.

    It matters more than you can possibly imagine.

    If it's a recent Verizon version Samsung, it may never get rooted. I believe Verizon wants to ensure that their devices remain tightly locked down. Same with other US carriers AFAIK. Locked bootloaders, and 6.x and later seeks to ensure that one click exploits don't work, like Kingroot.
