    It seems like my phone is not picked up by my computer when my phone is on download mode ready to use Odin. So I can’t root my phone. I have also tried downloading Samsung KIES as some forums suggested but it also does not work.

        Thank you Singh for your response. I forgot to mention on my initial post that I have enabled USB debugging and OEM which did not work.
